icons_large_consult

At Core Nutrition we cater for all the family. Consultations are offered on an individual basis to men and women of all ages and to accompanied children/teens or you can have a family consultation tailored to your family’s requirements. The consultation is a personalised individual one on one session with a Nutritional Therapist that helps identify your health history, key health issues, identifies your goals and allows the practitioner to build an agreed individual health plan with you that incorporates both diet, lifestyle and incorporates individual goals. Prior to the consultation  you will be sent a questionnaire and a food diary to complete,we take a full medical and lifestyle history and map out each persons history to give a time line of major events and health issues through your life. This information is used to access your past and current nutrition, lifestyle, emotional and health history and also helps identify triggers that may be causing or contributing to your symptoms. We also discuss your goals both short and long term and this helps to pin point key issues in the past and what needs attention going forward. Treating the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms is fundamental in Nutritional Therapy. We therefore treat the whole person and view each person as an individual. At the end of the session you will have practical advice that includes dietary requirements to include certain nutrients, lifestyle advice that may include exercises or stress relief and the use of dietary supplements for a short term use only. You may be advised that further tests may be required. This can be done through laboratory testing or we may recommend that we incorporate some muscle testing into your session to help determine quickly where the issues may lie within the body. At Core Nutrition you have a choice to suit your needs. The first consultation will last 90 minutes and subsequent visits last up to 60 minutes.

Kinesiology

home_icon_kinesiology
Kinesiology means “the study of movement“. A basic principle of Kinesiology is that an energy imbalance in any part of the body affects the functions of the body as a whole. It is an effective natural therapy that is conducted by using gentle pressure to test different muscles. Kinesiology is a non-intrusive fully clothed assessment and can provide very specific feedback. Correcting the imbalance brings about a general improvement in total body energy leading to enhanced physical and mental performance. Prior to the consultation we take a full medical and lifestyle history and map out each persons history to give a time line of major events and health issues through your life. We also discuss your goals both short and long term and this helps to pin point key issues in the past and what needs attention going forward. The kinesiologist will place your arms, legs or head into specific positions and then apply a little pressure to test a muscle. This test gives the kinesiologist information and feedback from your body about its condition and can access the order in which to treat the imbalances. An individual treatment plan may include nutritional supplements, structural realignment, reflex massage, chakra balancing, nutritional and dietary advice, lifestyle changes, emotional stress release techniques and an exercise plan. The exact treatment will depend on the bio-feedback received through the muscle testing. While a significant improvement can be achieved in the initial treatment, in general most people gain optimum benefit within three to four visits. Some common problems treated are:
  • Food allergies & intolerances
  • Virus / Bacteria/ parasite infections
  • Stress
  • Unresolved long term health issues
  • Old injuries
  • Low energy & fatigue
  • Digestive problems
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Migraine & Headaches
  • Attention / concentration difficulties
  • Skin conditions
