Long-distance Self-help Coaching Session via Skype/FaceTimeI offer self-help coaching sessions via Skype and the telephone for people that live too far away from London to attend my clinic and for patients that have previously attended my clinic it can be a helpful way of answering questions and obtaining follow-up advice.
Long-distance Coaching TermsI must make it clear for legal and insurance reasons that for people that have not previously attended my clinic these distant self-help coaching sessions are not the same thing as a proper medical consultation, we can discuss the types of natural remedies, techniques and treatment options you could try should you choose to try and work on your health problem yourself but you alone are fully responsible for choosing to try or follow any of the information you pick up during a self-help coaching session.
Despite these conversations not being the same as a proper medical consultation I offer them for people who cannot find an appropriate practitioner in their area and you should still be able to obtain useful information and answers to your questions about how to use natural self-help therapies for your specific health problem.
Although I wholeheartedly believe in natural remedies and self-help approach I recommend that you work with the assistance and support of an appropriate local medical practitioner whenever possible, especially if you going to make any significant changes such as deciding to discontinue using any prescription medication.
The Skype/telephone talk would be followed up with an email with personal self-help recommendations of remedies, dietary therapy and natural therapy techniques you could try for yourself to improve your health. It is not possible for me to gather the same depth of information about your life situation as I could when a person visit my clinic and so you must think carefully about your circumstances so that you make an educated and informed decision before you decide to discontinue using any prescription medication you are currently on and experiment with alternative remedies. Remember the principle rule of medicine: “first do no harm”. I would hate for someone to miss use the information I provide on my website or in a self-help Skype coaching session and come to any harm, please be safe.
Ask yourself is this an appropriate point in time for you to experiment with these self-help techniques? Do you have an adequate level of understanding or education? Do you have adequate support structures, coping strategies and self-awareness?
I have used natural remedies non-mainstream therapies to treat my own health problems since 1986, I wholeheartedly believe in self-help medicine and that these techniques are safe. I have never had a patient come to any harm by trying the techniques I use in my clinic and to the best of my knowledge they have no harmful side-effects when used properly however it’s possible for some of the remedies I use to produce harmful interactions when taken at the same time as prescription drugs, for example taking the amino acid tryptophan and an SSRI antidepressant together at the same time you may hypothetically produce too much serotonin, or taking turmeric and a blood thinning medication like warfarin can make the blood too thin.
We can talk about remedies, medicines and treatment options but you are ultimately responsible for your own health and for gathering enough information and understanding to be able to make an informed decision before trying any new remedies or techniques. So I'm very happy to talk with you and will give you the best advice I can but in today's world I must make it clear that a Skype or telephone conversation is outside normal professional medical practise and that by booking a conversation with me you are consenting to take full responsibility for any and all of the consequences of trying any of the self-help techniques we discuss and that you are agreeing it is entirely your decision as an adult if you decide to change your current prescription, or try any new remedies or therapeutic methods. I’m sorry if the above sentence comes across in any way as intimidating or offputting :-)
