Where possible, an in person consultation is preferable. This allows a full assessment of your symptoms and your health history which may include tests and physical examination that are otherwise not possible.
When an in person consultation is not possible to arrange, a distance consultation can be conducted either by telephone or Skype, where services I offer are not available locally for the client, provided that neither quality of the service nor the safety of the client are compromised.
Following the online consultation, it may be necessary to order relevant lab tests in order to determine an appropriate course of natural treatment and your individual requirements (testing is usually discussed during the first or second consultation).
