Personalised Consultation

We strive to help our patients improve their lifestyle.
Medical Lifestyle Diets

Personalised Consultation

Following a low carbohydrate and healthy fat (LCHF) lifestyle is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and stabilizing your mood. Metabolica Med will help you to take small steps to improve your nutrition and move toward a healthier you.

Useful Information

PREPARE FOR YOUR CONSULTATION

→ Please send any blood tests that may have been done in the past year to your dietitian elzette@metabolicamed.co.za/ 
michelle@metabolicamed.co.za before your consultation. If you do not have access to them, please send us an email with your ID number so that we can get the results. The blood tests are not compulsory for a consultation, if blood tests have not been done for a while, your dietitian may make recommendations for tests based on the consultation.

→ Please make a list, take pictures or bring the packages along of any medication or supplementation that you are currently using to your consultation.

→ Metabolica Med is located at 936 Jacques street Moreleta Park, Pretoria (Elzette: Monday - Friday and Michelle: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday) and 9 Brands Hatch Close, Kyalami Business Park, Midrand (Michelle: Wednesdays and Friday mornings). 

→ We advise that you arrive 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms before your consultation. For COVID purposes we can also email the forms directly to you before the consultation.  If the forms can be emailed back to us before the consultation, we can be ready to start the consultation upon your arrival.

→ Please note the information below regarding our policies and payment.
→ Due to the effort, we put into our meal plans, you will receive your meal plan within a week after your consultation.

→ Once you have started the meal plan and have any questions, please clarify them with your dietitian, as understanding every concept of healthy eating is crucial for making it a lifestyle.  We do ask that you instead direct your queries in an email so that if we need the time to look over your file or meal plan again, we can do so before getting back to you.

→ We are looking forward to meeting you!

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Metabolica Med is a dietetic practice providing several dietetic services including the ketogenic diet.

We are three dietitians passionate about the low-carbohydrate lifestyle as all of us have experienced some level of sickness, disease, fatigue, and/or poor quality of life due to poor eating habits.  We changed our lifestyles and the way we prescribed lifestyle changes to others.

We also do have the qualifications to support the guidance we give. Elzette Struwig (RDSA) as registered with the HPCSA and ADSA, has undergone ketogenic diet training at Matthew’s Friends KetoCollege in the UK and has been working in the ketogenic diet industry for the past 6 years. Michelle Mellet (RDSA) as registered with the HPCSA and ADSA, was also trained by Elzette in the ketogenic diet industry.  Michelle also has undergone 25 hours of intensive Nutrigenomics training.

All Metabolica Med’s dietitians have also undergone all the Nutrition Network training of more than 60 hours with professor T. Noakes.

Metabolica Med does not diagnose disease.  Metabolica Med strongly recommends that you consult with a Physician or Medical Specialist before undergoing any dietary or supplement changes. 

CANCELLATION POLICY

Please understand that our time is very much in demand; we set time aside, especially for you and do not overbook. We understand that not everyone is ready to commit to a lifestyle change, but for the consideration of others, please do not wait until the last minute if you have to cancel your appointment. Please plan accordingly.  You will be billed for your consultation if not cancelled within 48 hours before your set consultation date and time.  Please note that if you are running late, this will decrease the time that you have available to spend with us, as we cannot have other patients wait or shorten the time of their consultations.  We do appreciate your co-operation.

PAYMENT POLICY

Metabolica Med works in COD terms, thus, payment is due directly after the consultation (card or cash).  You will receive a statement via email which can be emailed to your medical aid to claim back.  In general, the medical aids do cover a major part of the initial consultation of R1 100, however, they, unfortunately, do not cover the meal plan or intolerance tests.  Medical aids normally also cover the full cost of the follow-up consultations.  We take no responsibility to claim any medical aid.
