What you can expect

During the consultation you will be given health, lifestyle and dietary advice.  Your recommendations are specific to you and your concerns and needs and are based upon the macrobiotic principles of health and wellbeing. 

Please click the Begin Consultation button to complete your Personal Health Questionnaire form prior to your appointment, this will help David clarify any questions or concerns you want to raise during your consultation and help to focus on any recommendations you need to improve your health and wellbeing.

How long is the consultation?

The first appointment usually lasts between 1-2 hours, depending upon your requirements.

Will I need a follow up?

David will discuss this with you towards the end of your consultation.  You may need more than one visit, some people come only once to receive help in getting a clear direction for their health.  However, some people choose to come again for ongoing guidance and support.

What can I take away from the consultation?

You will be given your own recommendations to progress your health, a recommended food list, recipes, healthy lifestyle suggestions and a recommended reading list.

Macrobiotics teaches us that the quality of our health is mainly as a result of our daily food choices (i.e. we are what we eat), as well as our activities and lifestyle, and by adjusting these we can create or loose our health.  Macrobiotics is not a restrictive diet or regime, it is a natural way of living, creating balance and harmony.

David is not a Medical Doctor, therefore he does not provide pharmaceutical/medical recommendations, testing or treatments.  However, he does understand these very clearly being a trained Pharmacist.  In addition to your counselling session, he may recommend that you consult your General Practitioner.  Macrobiotics can be used alongside treatment from your medical Doctor or with other Complimentary Therapies such as Acupuncture, Homeopathy or Shiatsu. 

David’s aim is to provide you with the necessary dietary and lifestyle advice based on his years of experience to help you create lasting health.

Please Contact Us for details of fees and appointments.

Should I study Macrobiotics?

To get the most from your consultation I would strongly recommend studying macrobiotics.  Kushi Macrobiotic School UK, offers a comprehensive study of macrobiotics, from introductory short classes to the internationally accredited Kushi Macrobiotics Levels Programme, a 12 Day Intensive Course of 3 Levels.  The more you learn, the more effective the benefit from your consultation is likely to be.
