Foresight Preconception

Foresight - the end of an era

It is with heavy hearts that Foresight announced it will not be continuing its services beyond September 2017. As is the case for many charitable organisations, despite best efforts over the last 5 years, it had become increasingly difficult to create a financially sustainable model which will provide security and stability for the charity and its service users, for the long term. The Board of Trustees therefore came to the difficult decision to close the Charity for good from September 2017.

As Lead Practitioner for Foresight since November 2014, I can attest to the sorrow of the whole team as we fought for such a valuable service. However, moving forwards, I am able to continue offering the same high quality services that Foresight did. Chances are, if you have had a hair test in the last 3 years, or rang Foresight with a technical query it is me you spoke to. I was instrumental in setting up the newer testing options available; an at home blood test profile to assess vitamin D, thyroid markers, and ferritin among others as well as the new DUTCH (dried urine test for comprehensive hormones) and was Foresight’s go to person for laboratory test analysis. All these tests are available through my services if you would like to work with me. – Hair Mineral Analysis – Core 10 Blood Spot Tests
Results and reports, with personalised supplement plans available please see below.

My wonderful colleague Eli Sarre also offers this continuation of Hair Mineral Analysis and can be found at her website Wildfare

Additional Services via private consultations: – DUTCH hormone profile – Functional Gastrointestinal Testing
In order to access DUTCH hormone and gastrointestinal testing with me you would like to book an initial consultation in order for me to give you a thorough nutritional assessment and make my recommendations. Not all test are appropriate or necessary for everyone.
