Could nutritional therapy help me? What happens during a consultation?
Why Miller Rogers is different to other therapists.
Miller has found spending longer at the first appointment means she can make a much more accurate assessment of your overall health. This allows your programme to be really fine tuned to your needs, meaning quicker results. Other therapists may take the first 2-3 appointments to get to this point, with Miller you require fewer appointments, consequently your treatment is cheaper and more effective.
Unlike most therapists, Miller does not supply supplements. She is therefore totally free to prescribe the supplements that are suitable for you and your body, and is not biased in any way to finish old stock or use suppliers that offer her a financial incentive.
Your individual programme is tailored to your needs, and your lifestyle. Miller talks through your limitations in following a programme, if you are entertaining most evenings or simply have no time for cooking then there is no point in slavishly trying. Why set yourself up to fail. Your programme will be realistic for you and your daily life, making it that much easier for you to succeed.
Miller takes great care to find out your priorities, what do you want to change or get better first? She will tailor your programme to target the symptoms. She will match your needs with your capabilities, creating a treatment programme that is tailored to your needs.
There is no right or wrong, and you will not be judged on what you eat. We all know we should eat better, and during an appointment with Miller she will explain enough for you to understand how foods, habits and lifestyle affect your body and your symptoms. You will leave knowing what will work for you, and what isn't important--so you can focus on what will make you better, rather than trying to do everything.
Chemistry Meeting Available
Not actually a chemistry lesson, but a chance to find out whether nutritional therapy will help your condition. Miller offers a 20-25 minute telephone sessions for you to discuss your needs, and how nutritional therapy may help you. There is no charge for this, as it is an opportunity for you to dip your toe without committing. Patients are often surprised that I don't stop them eating everything they like--find out for yourself.

Miller Rogers was brought up in a household where eczema, asthma and hay fever were prevalent. She became interested in the effects of food on the body when she was diagnosed with allergies and intolerances and as a result was brought up with the strong smell of goat's milk emanating from the fridge. She planned on setting up a a health food shop or restaurant that would cater for those with food restrictions and so studied for a degree in Catering and Retail Management. After gaining experience in retail catering outlets such as Cranks, she was drawn into film production. Eight years later as a Production Manager having problems eating a restricted diet whilst shooting on location, she went to see a nutritional therapist. She was already eating a very restricted diet, but with a few modifications and with nutritional supplementation she saw a significant improvement in her condition. As her health, and particularly the allergies and intolerances, started to improve and she saw the benefit of a nutritional understanding she decided to study nutritional therapy herself, firstly part-time and then full-time.
