If you’ve been suffering from digestive issues for a while, you may be frustrated at getting nowhere with conventional testing and treatments. You want to discover and correct the root cause of your symptoms, rather than just suppress symptoms.
At Sheena Hendon Health, a qualified Dietitian (UK) and NZ registered Nutritionist and Naturopath who specialises in digestive health, will take the time to listen to you and your history, conducting a thorough case history, symptom analysis and referral for functional pathology testing, to discover what’s really behind your symptoms.

Once we have a clear understanding of what’s causing your symptoms, you will work together with your practitioner to create a personalised treatment plan consisting of herbal medicines, nutritional supplements, and an eating plan.

You are given all the support you need, from recipes and eating plans, to troubleshooting, diet customisation, ongoing consultations and email support. We are there for you until the causes of your symptoms are resolved and you are living life symptom-free.

What to expect from your sessions

Initial session – 60 minutes

During your initial 60-minute consultation, you will sit down with your practitioner to go over your health history, and review all your symptoms and diet. This comprehensive appraisal ensures that I have all of the information needed to gain a complete understanding of all the factors affecting your health and to get a baseline from which we can track improvement in your symptoms.

On completion of your assessment, your practitioner will:

  • Recommend initial functional testing such as Blood tests, SIBO Breath Test and or a Comprehensive Stool Analysis. Note: all testing is an extra costs to the programme
  • Provide you with dietary guidelines, including an allowable food list, eating plan, and meal plan guidance
  • Recommend initial supplements and lifestyle changes for you to begin.

Once you complete your labs and we have received the lab results you will move on to Step Two: the Report of Findings. This typically occurs 4 weeks after the Initial Consultation. While you wait for your labs to come back, you will be implementing the Eating Plan and initial supplement and lifestyle recommendations, and making forward progress

Second session – 30 minutes

At the Report of Findings visit, your practitioner will:

  • Review the results of your lab testing.
  • Discuss the underlying patterns and triggers that are contributing to your symptoms.
  • Outline the suggested treatment plan, including dietary, supplement and lifestyle recommendations
  • Discuss the results of the Eating Plan.
  • Answer any questions you have about the findings or the treatment plan.

Depending on the findings of your test results, treatment generally follows these stages:

  • Removing any abnormal growth of bacteria, yeasts and/or parasites in your gut.
  • Reducing inflammation and repairing the lining of your gastrointestinal tract.
  • Restoring beneficial bacteria and re-establishing healthy bacterial balance in your gut
  • Restoring digestive secretions and gut immunity.
  • Identifying food intolerances

Follow up consultations (extra cost to the programme)

Once the Case Review is complete, you’ll have follow-up appointments every 4 weeks to check in with your progress as you move through the different stages of treatment At these visits, we will:

  • review your progress on the treatment plan,
  • fine-tune your protocol,
  • troubleshoot any issues,
  • customise your eating plan and reintroduce foods,
  • make additional recommendations, and answer any questions you may have
