follow up consultations
Follow up appointments at the JCN clinic are usually suggested within 3 -4 weeks after your initial appointment. We then like to see you every month for a few sessions, depending on your needs and goals. During these follow up consultations we will:
- Assess your progress and make changes in your treatment plan where needed
- Continue to introduce new food ideas to keep your dietary intake exciting and interesting
- Review test results
- Give you a vital checkpoint for accountability

Follow up appointments are $95.00 for half an hour or $120.00 for 1 hour for all practitioners (Jessica Cox extended consultation are $150.00). We generally find half an hour is sufficient, though utilise extended follow up consultations for test results and for existing JCN clients who have not visited the clinic in 3 months or more.
6 week intensive care monthly program
This highly supportive program has been designed for clients who require a more in-depth level of care. It is aimed to support those who have multi-systemic issues and require weekly cheek in’s for support with their practitioner. We find it is best suited for chronic conditions that often require a team of practitioners. Our Intensive Care Program is very suitable for those on severely restricted diets undergoing closely monitored food introduction.
The Intensive Program is best undertaken in blocks with the intension of us moving you to regular follow-ups, as your weekly reviews will become less necessary as you progress through your treatment.
The Intensive Care Monthly Program includes:
- Initial Extended Consultation (2 hours) @$250.00
- Weekly Follow Up Appointment (1 hour) for 5 additional weeks @$120.00 per session
- Regular email contact with your practitioner in between consultations as needed for all of your questions and concerns (charged at a quarter hour rate of $45.00 per 15 minutes of your practitioners time in collating your response)
$795.00 (includes all consultations. Please note this cost does not cover any email-based contact, as this will be charged weekly at your consultation. The JCN Clinic team prides itself on being available to help with your general questions and concerns, however please note this cost is for the more intensive time needs required by chronic conditions).

common testing procedures used at the jcn clinic
The below is just a dip in the ocean regarding the testing available through the JCN Clinic. The following testing options are however our most popular tests utilised in consultation:
Food Intolerance and/or Allergy Testing
This test checks for any inflammatory or immunological reactions to the foods that you are eating. A combination panel of 90 foods are tested and graded for a response. Definitely a relevant test for those experiencing bloating and gas that can be attributed to certain foods or meal combinations, irregular bowel motions, sensitive skin and/or allergies.
Gluten &Wheat Sensitivity
This is a great test for anyone who has a suspected gluten and/or wheat intolerance, especially when Coeliacs has been ruled out by standard testing. Contrary to belief, you do not have to be a coeliac to have reactivity to gluten. This is where this test comes into its own as it actually tests your ‘sensitivity’ to gluten by measuring alternative markers to standard coeliac blood tests.
Cost $ 228
Comprehensive Parasitology & Comprehensive Stool Analysis
Comprehensive Parasitology testing evaluates the health and microbial balance of the large bowel through DNA/PCR technology. It assesses the bacterial levels present as well as identifying parasites and yeast overgrowth. This test is a fantastic tool for anyone with long term or chronic gut issues and/or a history of parasitic, bacterial or yeast infection, as it allows your practitioner to specifically identify the functionality of your lower bowel on a microbial level.
Full Comprehensive Stool Analysis includes the above with additional markers pertaining to acute and chronic inflammation within the bowel, digestive and absorption markers, pH and measurement of Secretory IgA, which is an integral marker for deregulated gut immunity in relation to the mucosal layer. This test is pivotal for those with long standing chronic gut issues and for those with systemic symptoms.
Cost $350 – $650
SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) testing examines the presence of bacterial overgrowth of the small intestinal tract. Symptoms such as chronic bloating or gas, bloating straight after meals and those who’s symptoms respond well to the classic FODMAP diet generally benefit greatly from this test.
