FREQUENLY ASK QUESTIONS

1 / What are the benefits of a Nutrition and Herbal Consultation?

During the consultation, clients will develop skills to enhance their health and better understand their body's signals. They'll identify habits to modify and discover tools to shift learned patterns. Additionally, an Iridology Reading can reveal inherited weaknesses and inform a preventative medicine plan to reduce future illness risks. The treatments will focus on cleansing and detoxifying the body, improving digestion, enhancing the immune system, boosting vitality, resetting the hormonal system, and achieving balance in body, mind, and soul. Herbal Medicine is particularly effective for acute and chronic conditions when compared to conventional medicine.

2 / What is the difference between an Herbalist and a Naturopath? 

Herbalists and naturopaths are focused in holistic natural medicine. Naturopaths have training in various natural holistic modalities like homeopathy, herbal medicine, and nutrition. At the same time, herbalists are specialists in botanicals because they study in-depth plant properties and interactions over the years. Naturopaths use pre-made formulas like supplements and nutraceuticals (concentrated extracts of herbs). Instead, herbalists formulate their own recipes from the whole herb that are specific to the patient's needs. 

3 / What is involved in the consultation?

For the Power Session Plus and for Tailored Botanical Solutions, we'll have a relaxed discussion about your health history, covering physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. You'll fill out an intake form and receive an iridology reading. 

By the end, in the Power Session Plus, you'll have a one-page document with personalised nutritional and lifestyle adjustments.​

In the Tailored Botanical Solutions, after our conversation, you'll receive a personalized formulation. It will be shipped to you, and a follow-up call will be made a week later to ensure it suits your needs. You can request a repeat of the formula via email (up to two times) within three months of our initial session.​

For the in-depth 6 months programme, follow this link.

Please bring any relevant blood tests or analyses for your health history gathering.

4 / What should I expect in a follow-up consultation? 

If you require ongoing guidance, a follow-up session can be scheduled within 3 to 6 months as part of the Journey to Optimum Health Program. This 60-minute session will review your progress, adjust your plan as needed, and provide guidance on nutrition and herbal supplements. During our final session, we'll determine if further support is needed or if you're ready to continue independently, with the option to book appointments as needed.

5 / How long will the treatment last? 

The number of appointments you will need depends on many variables, such as compliance with the advice given and intake of herbal medicines. It also depends on your current health, whether you are on medication, your diet, etc. Although everyone responds differently, we recommend committing to a minimum of three months to start feeling changes because herbs act in the body slowly compared to conventional medicines. 

6 / What is your Cancellation Policy?

Sofia Perez kindly requests advance notice for all cancellations or rescheduling of appointments. When an appointment is scheduled, it reserves Sofia Perez's time. Whether you attend or not, this time is reserved specifically for you.

If you do not cancel 24 hours prior to your appointment or fail to attend, a fee of 40€ will be charged. This fee is payable within 30 days of receiving a notice, which will be sent to your home address. Payment is required at least 24 hours before your consultation to confirm the booking

7 / What happens if I run out of my herbal treatment?

When existing clients are running low of the herbal protocol before next session, they do not need to book a consultation;  they can contact me for a repeat of the treatment. 

8 / What does a custom-made botanical formulation mean?

Our custom-made botanical formulas combine herbs with unique therapeutic actions tailored to each client's specific situation. These herbs are administered in the form of a tincture, which is a blend of water and alcohol, powder, or dried herbs. Each preparation comes with a label detailing the dose and preparation instructions. Our formulations are primarily free of additives and sourced from reputable companies known for their high sustainability values and best practices in the herbal industry.

Other administrations can be syrups, ointments, capsules, suppositories, fomentations, and in some cases, recipes to encourage the patient. 

9 / Can I take medication from my GP simultaneously with my herbal medicine formulas?  

The ability to use herbal medicine depends on the type of medication you're taking. In certain cases, herbal remedies may not be feasible due to potential interactions with other medications.

It's important to inform your GP about taking herbal medicine formulas. As your botanical program progresses, your GP will need to monitor your pharmaceutical medication for potential adjustments in dose and strength. Herbs may aid in reducing the doses of certain pharmaceutical medications and minimizing side effects.

10 / Will my insurance cover my visit?

Sofia Perez does not collaborate with any insurance company, but you will get an invoice you can submit to your insurance. 

11 / What type of payment is accepted?

We accept payment by Rebolut, card and bank transfer.

12 / Can I order a botanical preparation?

Formulated botanical preparations legally require an initial 1-to-1 consultation. Schedule a call to find out which program will be the perfect fit for you!

 

If you are a returning client, you can order your preparation made from your last consultation for a determined period of time.Your herbal protocol will be shipped with an additional cost.

13 / What is the difference between a herbal supplement and a custom-made formula?

An herbal supplement available over-the-counter might include ingredients extracted from plants or synthesized in a lab for a specific condition. However, it may also contain additives or fillers for chemical stability and long shelf life.

A personalized formula, crafted by a licensed herbalist, is tailored specifically to your symptoms using dried herbs, powders, or tinctures (a water and alcohol mixture) with extended shelf life. This natural treatment excludes artificial ingredients to prevent additional symptoms.
