Naturopathy at OMC


Naturopathy with Vera Martins, PhD, ND, MAMH


Affordable, Convenient & Accessible Naturopathy Appointments at the Online Menopause Centre (OMC)

Once you have booked your Naturopathy Initial consultation online, you will receive a Naturopathy questionnaire where you will be asked specific questions about your health and lifestyle such as diet, gut health, sleep, and stress management. This will provide us with a solid understanding of your health picture ahead of the initial consultation, allowing us to focus on the main issue(s) and treatment plan on the day.

The Naturopathy questionnaire will need to be completed and returned to us before your Initial consultation with our Naturopath, Vera Martins. Please be aware that without the completed questionnaire we will not be able to proceed with the consultation.

 

We offer the option of performing functional testing such as:

Saliva cortisol daily pattern, comprehensive gut health assessment and DUTCH testing.

Functional testing, if appropriate, will be discussed during your initial Naturopathy consultation.

Patient Testimonials

“I’d like to highly recommend Dr Vera Martins. She is an amazing, thoughtful naturopathy consultant. Due to my fatigue /mood challenges which I was not able to shift, I was seeking for an alternative way forward. The recommendations given by Dr Martins from change of diet/lifestyle to added supplements make such a difference. I now wake up before the alarm, feel not totally exhausted after a nights sleep and have more energy throughout the day. Five out of Five!!”

Personalised Treatment Plan (inc. in Initial Consultation)

Following your consultation, you will be emailed a personalised treatment plan that may include nutrition advice, supplements, herbal remedies and lifestyle advice. If supplements are prescribed, a list will be sent to you in the format of a shopping cart ready for payment and ordering. After ordering, supplements will be sent to your home address usually within 2-3 working days (UK addresses). Functional testing may be recommended (e.g. cortisol daily pattern or gut health) that we will organise for you.

Week 5/6

Beyond Week 12

Review Appointments - 20 mins (£95)

Once you have your second review, depending on your progress, this may be your last one and a maintenance plan will be prescribed, or you may be advised to have an additional review. Every case is assessed on an individual basis and discussed with the patient. If you need to speak to Vera at any stage once a maintenance plan has been prescribed please book a Review appointment.

Why do I need Review Consultations?


Naturopathy is a step by step process working towards an end goal, requiring follow-up sessions to progressively achieve optimal results. The number of reviews will depend on the nature of each case but it may take up to 3 months with 2 reviews in order to achieve consistent results, although you may feel benefits as early as one week.

She has provided super clear advice and direction, and with her help I have lost a significant amount of weight (over a stone in 8 weeks), am sleeping better, have a better and more consistent mood & emotions, and have reassurance on my overall health. Her advice has been super practical and easy to follow. I’m really grateful for Dr Vera’s support in helping me achieve my health goals.”
