Q. How many Consultations will I need to see an improvement in my health?

This depends on factors such as the nature of your health problem and how long your symptoms have been present. Usually people will notice improvements quite quickly, that is within 4 to 8 weeks. The average number of consultations a person needs is three, spread over 12 weeks. Your ability to make changes also affects the number of visits you need to achieve your goals.  More complex cases can take more time before results are seen. Nonetheless, you can be confident that you will receive ongoing support during your treatment.

Q. What is the difference between a Dietician, a Nutritionist and a Nutritional       Therapist?

A dietician works within a state sector typically in a hospital and is qualified to give advice on diets for people with specific medical requirements. Diets provided by a dietician are usually intended to manage medical conditions. Nutritionists are qualified to provide general information about food and healthy eating, but not about special therapeutic diets. They often work in an advisory capacity to the food industry or hospitals. Nutritionists are not trained in clinical practice. A Nutritional therapist is qualified to provide tailored dietary and lifestyle advice for those who want to find safe, natural solutions to a specific health concern. They undertake clinical training as part of their qualification. Properly qualified nutritional therapists are subject to the code of ethics and regulations of Nutritional Therapists of Ireland. Nutritional therapists work in private practice.
