Nutritional Consultations From Birmingham Health

What is a Nutritional Consultation?

A nutritional consultation involves building a detailed picture of your lifestyle, eating habits, medical history and any concerns you may have about your health.

Why is a Nutritional Consultation important? 

With this information we can work together to form a plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. We’ll help you identify and avoid unnecessary or harmful foods and replace them with healthy foods. You will also be advised on which vitamin and mineral supplements are necessary to provide complete nutrition. You will come away with a individualized plan of action knowing exactly what you need to do next.

What to expect at your Nutritional Consultation

Before your appointment you will be asked to complete and return a nutritional questionnaire. This will help maximize the effectiveness of your appointment.

If you are coming for an appointment regarding fertility and miscarriage we would recommend that your partner is also involved and attends the appointment along with filling in a questionnaire. Should detailed advice be required for both you and your partner we recommend you book a 60 min consultation. If your main concern relates only to one person, a 30 min consultation will be sufficient time, however we still recommend your partner attend the consultation with you if possible.

At your appointment your questionnaire will be discussed. At the end of the consultation you will be given a supplement and nutritional program tailored to your specific needs, and a follow up appointment will need to be arranged. If tests are appropriate, then these will be discussed and organized at your appointment.
