I am now offering email support again due to popular demand! I charge out generally at £95 per hour - at least a third of what I should be charging; it is important to me that people can get the support they need without paying huge amounts.
If you have a question on your test results or you're not sure where to start with something, book an Ask Micki, then email me your question at email@example.com. I'll get back to you asap. I'm usually pretty quick :) If it's quite a complex question, or several questions, please book two or three Ask Mickis, or I may suggest more depending on how much time it will take me/how complex it is. Don't worry if you're not sure, I'll advise you.
If you need me to analyse your test results and give you some recommendations on what to do next, book a Test Report. (Max 3 results pls or 1 big one if eg. FDX, Metabolomix etc. If you have more, just send them but I may ask for more time to be paid for). Email me your results and some brief background about why you were testing/what you are looking for. I will email you any questions/the report and my suggestions when ready with links to tests, products etc as necessary. Give me a few days. I don't mind a couple of questions after a report, but please use Email Support or Ask Mickis after that.
"Thanks that’s great, it’s exactly the feedback I was hoping for!" GH May 22 (after Test Report)
If you have a 'simple' issue you need some help with (eg. IBS/weight gain/ or whatever), you feel you don't need a full Case Review but it's more than an Ask Micki, then book a One-Off Consultation. Then, email me some background about the issue, your questions etc and I'll take it from there. We'll probably email back and forth for a bit if I need more info and then I'll give you my thoughts and recommendations of what to do. Don't worry if you're not sure what to book - either email me to ask (firstname.lastname@example.org) or book this and we can convert it if needed to a full Case Review. Most people go for this one-off consultation.
If you need me to take a good, hard look at your more complex case because you're not sure where to start, go next, have plateaued, lost the will to live with it, book a Complex Case Review. Once booked, email me some background to email@example.com - start with the current situation and symptoms, diet inc. whether you eating dairy, gluten, grains - and then continue with some history, what's helped, what hasn't, what you or others think is going on etc. Bear in mind, you are paying for experience and my thoughts here, not time or word count. My forte, after 30 years, is in seeing the whole picture and identifying what may have been missed. We'll probably email back and forth for a bit if I need more info. I'll then email you my thoughts and suggestions when ready with links to stuff, products, tests etc as necessary. Give me a week or so on this one. I don't mind a couple of questions after a report, but please use the 60 Min Email Support or Ask Mickis after that.
You can use this Case Review as a one-off to help you with strategy. If you want support after this, just book a Progress Review when you feel ready.
Many of you have said you want to be able to email me with questions as and when you need me/in between appointments or whatever and not feel like you are hassling me! I hear you. Book a 60 minute Email Support and then I will let you know at the bottom of each email how much time we have used up (eg. 47 mins remaining). Once we've used up the 60 mins, I'll advise you and you can book some more time if you need to or come back when/if you need some more. I did this for years - charging for time used as we went along - and it always worked great, so I've reinstated it for you. I think and type fast, so this can work well for people who need reassurance/hand-holding/don't need an appointment per se.
"Yes, all this helps, I am so glad to have found you, this is exactly what I was looking for, I am very grateful, thank you!" Jan 22 (after Case Review)
Email consults are cheaper to administer and enable me to keep my prices as low as possible. After almost 30 years' experience in natural medicine, I could be charging at least double, but it's important to me that people can afford help from private consultants like me when they need it.
I find email often the best way to deal with cases, actually, because we both have a written record of what's been said to refer back to - I help a lot of people with brain fog - it ensures better understanding and compliance, you don't have to take time off to attend anything and, importantly, many of my hypersensitivity patients are best in their own controlled environments and may be too poorly on a specified time for their appointments; its stressful trying to keep well for them. I know, I am a chronic MCAS case myself, and my wish is that I can prevent you from getting that far down the hypersensitivity rabbit hole! Plus, email means I can send you links to any resources more easily.
