NTA Health Frequently Asked Questions
What is NTA Health?
At NTA Health we aim to treat all types of illness with a combination of homeopathy and herbal medicines, with nutritional supplements too.
We like to assess all of the factors that might be contributing to your health conditions (bacteria and viruses as well as toxins, molds etc). We do this through bio-resonance testing, either with you in person at our clinic, or otherwise by testing a saliva sample.
We have remote services available – the Self Guided section of our website can be found by clicking here
Our remote services include:
A remote health analysis costs £140 and includes a results report and treatment plan drawn up by one of our chronic programme practitioners. 30 minute Skype or phone appointments are also available for an additional £50 – only in addition to the health analysis.
You will need to post us a saliva sample, to be tested using our bio-resonance system – we can test 90% of the things that would usually test for if you came for an assessment in clinic, including infections, toxins, intolerances, hormone levels, nutritional deficiencies and organ health.
Please be aware that we will ask you to post your sample on a specific day. This is so that we can test it soon after it arrives and get the clearest possible results. It is your responsibility to follow the instructions we provide in the email confirmation and you must let us know in advance if you have not received your confirmation email or your kit by post. If we do not receive your kit when we are expecting it, we will contact you by email. If it has been lost in the post we will send you another kit and rebook your test slot. After we test your sample, you can expect your saliva test results within 2-3 weeks.
Can I do remote testing if I live abroad?
It depends on how quickly you can post a large letter size postal box to the UK. We need to be able to test the sample within 3 days of you making it, for it to still be viable.
Otherwise, suggest you consider purchasing a kit and then posting it to us if you visit the UK. The other option would be to look into using a courier service.
Can I eat or drink before collecting my saliva sample?
We recommend that you do not eat, drink, smoke or chew gum within the 30-mins before collecting your sample.
How do I organise a phone or skype consultation with my practitioner?
These are only available after £120 tests and are subject to availability. Please email us once you have your test report. 30 minute phone / skype calls cost £50
How does a saliva sample compare to a face to face consultation with bio-resonance testing.
We have been offering the saliva testing for about 5 years now (Aug 2023) and almost everything can be tested using a saliva sample, rather than testing you in person. Although we appreciate it isn’t the same experience as a face to face consultation, when combined with a phone appointment it’s almost as good.
Can I cancel a test after purchase?
If you cancel within 2 working days of purchasing a test then we can give you a full refund minus the PayPal fee which is non-refundable. If your circumstances change and you need to cancel after this point, we can refund your fee minus £30 admin charge, up to one week before your test return date. After this point we cannot offer any refund.
How often should my health be tested?
For people needing regular updates we recommend testing every 2 months. For those who need maintenance plans we recommend testing every 4 months. For general health check ups we recommend 6 or 12 months.
How long does it take to receive results?
Please allow 3 weeks to receive the report from your test date.
If you receive a treatment plan please let us know if you would like to request the complementary homeopathic remedies and printed report. Recommended supplements can be ordered online through our online shop at https://natureswisdomuk.com/shop/
What is the average cost for chronic illness treatment?
In most cases we advise clients with chronic illness that they will need 18 months of treatment with tests every 6 weeks. This would cost approx. £1500. Plus additional costs of support products is on average £50 a month per person.
How can I ask my practitioner questions in response to a recent report?
Please email questions to [email protected] with “message for practitioner” in the subject line. Please collate all your questions into one email to send.
Do you treat animals?
We offer dog tests by saliva testing. Find further information about what pet testing we offer here.
How does my pet take the remedies/supplements?
Add the homeopathic remedies to their water bowl (it doesn’t matter if other pets drink the water), the dose is always one pillule.
Sprinkle support powders onto food and herbal tinctures can be given by mouth or in food.
The recommended dose for canine powders is 2.5ml, 2 x daily for small dogs and 5ml 2 x daily for large dogs (over 10kg). 2 x daily means one AM and one PM.
The recommended dose for canine tinctures is 1 pipette full, 2-3 x daily for small dogs and 2 pipettes full, 2-3 x daily for large dogs (over 10kg). 2 x daily means one AM and one PM.
How does pet testing work?
You can read more about them on this page
The kit comes with instructions, a questionnaire to fill in and a sterile swab. The swab is the type used for DNA and you need to wipe it inside of your pet’s cheek to get a good amount of saliva on it.
Can you recommend anything for my illness?
We do not have protocols for specific illnesses. The naturopathic approach uses testing and asking detailed questions about your health and symptoms so we can treat in an individualised way. There is more information about this on our blog: https://www.ntahealth.co.uk/blog-articles/
After you have had a health assessment or health MOT with us, you will be given access to all our online resources including our recovery programme documents. Read more about it here: https://www.ntahealth.co.uk/self-guided-2/
There are some chronic conditions where experience tells us what supports are likely to help. If you are unable to access individualised treatment then you can follow our general recommendations: https://www.ntahealth.co.uk/chronic-illness/
To be ready for all eventualities we recommend that people buy a homeopathic kit. This can be bought from Native Wisdom where their basic kit is £29.95 plus postage for 18 basic remedies. They also sell a homeopathic pet kit.
We recommend the website below for advice on minor illnesses, travel and first aid. If you have a remedy kit then you can self prescribe quite easily: www.remedyseeker.com
How do I order my recommended supplements?
All recommended supplements are available at natureswisdomuk.com – if you have any difficulty please email [email protected] and they can advise or even create a shopping basket for you.
To order more supplies of homeopathic remedies please use this page of the website shop and then add the names and potencies of the remedies that you need in the box for notes at the checkout, or email us with your order number and requirement to [email protected].
To order more supplies of a bespoke powder, tincture, liquid or dry herb mix please use this page of the website shop and then add the name / description and the batch from the label that you need in the box for notes at the checkout, or email us with your order number and requirement to [email protected].. Please note bespoke orders usually take 2 weeks and are currently taking longer (August 2020) so please consider ordering 2 at a time and keeping one as a rolling reserve.
Can I add different supplements to my treatment plan?
If you’ve had a health analysis with us it’s important to let your practitioner know if you are taking supplements additional to the plan they have recommended, as some things work against each other. There are some general supplements that can be taken in addition to the plan but it is important to consider how all are working together. Please use your health assessment / mot questionnaires and retest questionnaires to let your practitioner know what you are thinking about starting or stopping.
How do I take the supplements and remedies?
You can add tinctures to food, water, juice or take straight on a spoon, but do not add to hot drinks. Dose is 10 drops, 2 x daily unless the label or your treatment plan says otherwise. 2 x daily means one AM and one PM.
You can sprinkle powder on cold food or add to cold liquid. To make them easier to swallow, mix with yoghurt or something similar. Dose is 5mls, 2 x daily unless the label or your treatment plan says otherwise. 2 x daily means one AM and one PM. 5mls is a teaspoon.
Powders that contain sprouted broccoli are more effective if you chew them (sorry, tastes awful but it really works).
Any homeopathic remedies should be taken 5+ mins away from any food or drink and pillules should be left to dissolve under the tongue. Do not chew or swallow them. The dose is always one pillule (or 3 drops if a liquid remedy), 2 x daily means one AM and one PM.
How do I store the supplements?
Homeopathic remedies need to be stored away from direct sunlight, microwaves / wifi / mobile phones etc. and strong smelling items.
Powders need to be stored at room temperature, in an air-tight container and are best used within 6 months of opening.
Tinctures should be stored in your fridge once open, and used within 3 months of opening.
All powders and tincture should be used before the BBE date on the label.
Should I stop my current pharmaceutical medication to start a treatment plan with you?
No, we recommend keeping everything the same when starting treatment with NTA Health. Over time you may be able to reduce and wean off your conventional medication, but this should be done with the knowledge of your practitioner and your GP. Please use your retest questionnaires to advise your practitioner about changes you would like to make.
What if I feel worse after taking the recommendations?
There is a small possibility that your symptoms may get worse for a few days after taking the new remedies/supplements. This is a normal part of the healing process, but we aim to avoid this as much as possible. We usually ask you in your report, to add one new treatment at a time (eg. one per day at the most). If you feel worse after taking a new treatment then you should stop taking the most recently added item and wait 3 days before starting it again. If you are not sure which new treatment has caused the worsening then stop everything new for 3 days and then go back to adding them one at a time (one every 2 days is better in this case). If you have new symptoms that start after taking a new treatment, then again stop taking it for 3 days and then try again. Use your retest questionnaires to let your practitioner know about any new symptoms or worsening of symptoms that happened and which treatment you think brought them on.
I have old symptoms coming back, what do I do?
It’s quite common to have old symptoms coming back during treatment. If it is something that your practitioner has previously recommended treatment for (you can check your past reports and prescription sheets to see if there is anything listed), then it is safe to restart that treatment. If it is a symptom that you experienced before having treatment with NTA, then this is actually a good sign that a healing process is happening and you will usually feel better afterwards. If it isn’t a serious symptom then try to let it happen for a few days and usually it will clear itself (make a note to tell your practitioner that it happened on your retest questionnaire). If it is a serious symptom then you should check with your GP what to do or A&E if appropriate.
My child took my remedies/supplements, what do I do?
Don’t panic, all our products are child friendly and you can’t be harmed or overdose on the products as they are only natural ingredients.
