    • Accountability, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching
    • Laboratory based tests

The initial steps begins with our Health Assessment Quiz. Download the questionnaire and answer the questions honestly. We then schedule a 10 minute consultation to review you current health status. After this assessment we discuss options and best practices taking into consideration your results and health goals.

During the initial consultation, Maev will look at your personal history, your current nutrition and activity habits, your movement, your current environment and exposure to elements, psychological and emotional factors, your family history / genetics and more

The next step is you then receive a comprehensive Action Plan (via email) which outlines Maev’ findings from the consultation, dietary strategies with nutritional supplements or suggestions of more advanced laboratory tests which examine nutrient deficiencies, food triggers, imbalances, digestive health, bacteria overgrowths, infections alongside your genetics, in order to give you the best possible insight into your current state of health.

Once the results from the tests return, you have your follow up appointment to discuss the findings and create a customised nutrition, lifestyle and stress management plan to address both current, and future health concerns.

The number of consultations you choose is dependant on a number of factors: your health goals, symptoms and time-frame of feeling unwell and budget. We request at least a 3 month commitment. However the 6 sessions can be spread out over 5 months in total, and not every client needs to have the 2 weekly check in. On the 6th session, we review your progress and discuss the next steps. For clients that have already been though at least one 90 Day Programme, you can book in for a  ‘Pick My Brain’ one hour session or choose another package option. Hourly rates are €150 post The 90 Day Plan.

More details: Your Initial Consultation

Your initial consultation is essentially a gathering of information and assessment, using the Functional Medicine Matrix (model including the Timeline). Functional medicine takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle. Maev emphasises the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and client and seeks to give her clients a full range of healing options with an emphasis on healthy living, nutrition, and disease prevention.

Before the consultation, you will be asked to complete a detailed questionnaire and keep a food diary (for three to five days). This enables Maev to identify any biochemical/ nutritional requirements and obtain a clearer picture of your current health status.

Functional Medicine Approach

Maev’ functional medicine approach focuses on nutritional support, ensuring adequate absorption of nutrients via digestive tract, hormone balance, stress management, and movement. With advanced testing, we can evaluate which systems are imbalanced and dysfunctional. Next step is to restore these systems with nutrients, food planning, movement, stress management, and discussions on your environment (home, work, and more).
