RJ Health and Wellbeing is committed to equality and diversity via tailored management plans adapted to each client’s individual circumstances.

RJ Health & Wellbeing requests that the client notes the following:

  • The scope of consultation services does not include diagnosis or treatment of newly presenting illness or disorder/s. If I, the client, suspect I may have an ailment or illness that may require medical attention, then it is my responsibility to consult with my GP.
  • Functional medicine approaches, nutritional consultation and lifestyle advice are not a substitute for conventional medical advice and/ or treatment.
  • If your practitioner has serious concerns about your safety or the safety of another person, normal confidentiality may be lifted. You will be asked to provide your GP’s contact details, as someone they may contact.
  • Any mention of prescription medications during consultation is only for the purpose of providing a complete history of medications that the client is taking, not for review of the appropriateness of the medication. Any change in prescription or dosage of ongoing medications is a decision the client makes with his or her general practitioner/ specialist.
  • RJ Health & Wellbeing focuses on symptom management (alongside ongoing medical management of known conditions), attainment of optimum health and wellness, and prevention of illness, using nutritional therapy and lifestyle medicine modalities, to achieve optimal health. Supplementation may be advised, where deemed necessary.
  • If supplementation is advised, a select product(s) may be recommended. Product recommendations are based on the consideration of the quality of the ingredients and their bioavailability (ability to be absorbed and utilised by the body), the quality of the manufacturing process, and the synergism among product components. The brands recommended are those that meet high standards and tend to produce predictable results. Whilst other products are available in the general marketplace, it is important to note that given the lack of stringent testing requirements for nutritional supplements, product quality varies widely. If unsure about a recommendation, don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with your practitioner, in order to find a product of your choice that works best for you.
  • Functional testing may be recommended, where deemed appropriate, to inform personalised diet and lifestyle recommendations. Please note that any additional tests undertaken are charged separately by the respective labs. The purpose of functional testing is to evaluate nutrition, digestion and metabolism, and may occasionally indicate medical referral. Functional tests are not intended to diagnose disease.
  • Use of nutritional supplements may be safely recommended for clients already taking prescribed pharmaceutical medications, but interactions can occur between certain medications and certain supplements. For this reason, it is important to keep all of your healthcare providers fully informed about all medications and nutritional supplements you may be taking.
  • While people generally experience greater health and wellness as a result of optimising diet and lifestyle, RJ Health & Wellbeing does not promise or guarantee protection from future illness.
  • The degree of benefit obtainable may vary between clients with similar health problems and following similar programmes.


The client understands and agrees to the following:

  • I am responsible for contacting my GP about any new health concerns.
  • If I am receiving treatment from my GP, or any other medical practitioner, I should tell them about any management plan or nutritional strategy provided by RJ Health & Wellbeing.
  • It is important that I tell RJ Health & Wellbeing about any medical diagnosis, medications, herbal medicines, or food supplements I am taking, as this may affect my management plan.
  • If I am unclear about the agreed nutrition programme/ supplement/ doses/ time period, I should contact RJ Health & Wellbeing promptly for clarification.
  • I understand that the advice provided is personal for me and might not be appropriate for others.
  • I must contact RJ Health & Wellbeing should I wish to continue any specific supplements / food plans for longer than the original agreed period.
  • Recording consultations using any form of electronic media is not permitted.

Programme duration

  • Programmes should be completed within 12 weeks, although may occasionally take up to 16 weeks, owing to circumstances.
  • Access to the practice portal and all shared materials will continue throughout the programme and any scheduled follow ups. Materials must be downloaded by the client in order to ensure long term access. Alternatively, ongoing access to the practice portal and its tailored content can be purchased for a small ongoing monthly fee, which can be cancelled at any time.


  • Payment is required at the time of booking.
  • Payment plans can be arranged if necessary.
  • Programmes are non-refundable and subject to a 16 week time limit for completion.
