Terms & conditions

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.

The Nutritional Therapist requests that the Client notes the following:

·       The degree of benefit obtainable from nutritional therapy may vary between clients with similar health problems and following a similar nutritional therapy programme.

·       Nutritional advice will be tailored to support health conditions and/or health concerns identified and agreed upon between both parties.

·       Nutritional therapists are not permitted to diagnose or claim to treat medical conditions.

·       Nutritional advice is not a substitute for professional medical advice and/or treatment.

·       Standards of professional practice in nutritional therapy are governed by the CNHC Code of Conduct with which the nutritional therapist is registered.

·       This document only covers the practice of nutritional therapy within this consultation, and your practitioner will make it clear if he or she intends to step outside this boundary.

·       All communications will be conducted via email or the Better portal henceforth and any email or message queries will be responded to during clinic hours.

·       Consultations are conducted with privacy and in confidence.

Consultation Agreement

I agree to the following conditions for the upcoming consultations with my nutritional therapist:

·       The information I have provided/will provide via questionnaires, phone, email, in-person, or by any other means of communication is accurate to the best of my knowledge.

·       The recommendations I will receive from my nutritional therapist are not a substitute for medical advice from a qualified doctor.

·       The advice I will receive from my nutritional therapist is personal and applies to me only. This same advice may be ineffective or even harmful when applied to other people with different backgrounds.

·       I must communicate to my nutritional therapist if I do not understand any given part of the recommendations given to me or if I am uncomfortable with any aspect of my care.

·       I must communicate to my nutritional therapist any changes in my medical conditions, symptoms, prescriptions, herbal prescriptions, supplements, or treatments for the duration of my nutrition plan.

·       I must communicate to my nutritional therapist any changes in my if I am pregnant or breastfeeding.  I will immediately inform them should I become, or plan to become pregnant or if I begin, or plan to begin to breastfeed. 

·       I must inform my nutritional therapist promptly if any of my new changes in diet or lifestyle start to cause me adverse effects.

·       My GP remains my primary care physician and the appropriate contact in a health emergency.

·       If I am unclear about the agreed nutritional therapy protocol/food supplement doses/time period, I should contact my nutritional therapist promptly and not proceed until I have received clarification.

·       I understand any changes in my diet and lifestyle may produce effects in my body, energy, health, and condition that are gradual in nature – not instantaneous.

·       I understand that the advice I shall receive will not be enough to achieve my nutrition or lifestyle goals unless I follow it diligently and commit to it fully.

·       I understand that, although my nutritionist will endeavour to help me achieve my nutrition and lifestyle goals to the extent possible, the possibility exists I may not fully attain my goals due to factors outside the control of my nutritional therapist.

·       After my nutrition programme has been completed, the food, lifestyle and supplement recommendations made in my protocol are appropriate only until the date provided on the Protocol. Choosing to continue with any or all of these recommendations beyond that date is a choice made at my own risk.

·       I agree to my case information being used for the publication of case reports or case studies.  Any information concerning my identity will be excluded from publication, thus maintaining my anonymity.

Fees, Payment & Bookings 

The fees for the service are detailed in the website/offer letter. The Client is responsible for full payment of fees for the entire selected Service duration, regardless of whether you actually attend or complete the selected Service, and regardless of which payment option you have chosen. Failure to make the agreed payments will result in default of the agreement and your agreement may be forwarded to a third party to recoup the full amount due for the remainder of your Service plus any costs incurred.
