- We have remote services available – the Self Guided section of our website can be found by following this link:
Our remote services include: A remote health analysis costs £120 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.
A £60 health test is available for wellbeing and general health checks.
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 also important that you provide a decent size sample for the best results. You can expect standard 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 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 2-3 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/
Do you treat animals?
We offer dog tests by saliva testing. We are currently investigating a test for cats! Find further information about what pet testing we offer here: https://natureswisdomuk.com/health-mot/
How does my pet take the remedies/supplements?
Add the homeopathic remedies to water bowls (it doesn’t matter if other pets drink the water) and sprinkle support powders onto food.
How does pet testing work?
You can read more about them both 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 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/

Can I add different supplements to my treatment plan?
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?
You can add tinctures to food, water, juice or take straight on a spoon, but do not add to hot drinks.
You can sprinkle powder on food or add to cold liquid. To make them easier to swallow, mix with yoghurt or something similar.
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.
How do I store the supplements?
Homeopathic remedies need to be stored away from direct sunlight and strong smelling items.
Powders 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 opened and used within 3 months of opening.
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.
