What Can I Expect During A Naturopathic Consultation?
Comprehensive Naturopathic Treatment
1. Initial Consultation
You can expect a first consultation to take 60-90 minutes. During your initial consultation, I will take a very thorough wellness history, asking about your diet, lifestyle, stress, medical history and environmental exposures. This appointment is all about gathering as much information as possible.
2. First Follow Up Appointment (approx 1-3 weeks after)
In this appointment I will provide you with a written treatment plan, along with a prescription for any practitioner-only supplements or a custom-blended herbal medicine if required. If testing was arranged, then I will provide and discuss your results in this appointment. Your treatment plan will be written especially for you and your individual needs, taking into account your individual health requirements, commitments and budget.
3. Follow up appointments may be necessary every 2-6 weeks to monitor your progress, discuss the results of any assessments and make any adjustments as required to your treatment regime. The initial stage of treatment focuses on alleviating symptoms and stimulating the body’s natural processes to commence healing. The second stage of treatment focuses on eliminating the underlying cause of the condition and supporting your full recovery and longer term health.
Depending on your individual situation, I may need to monitor you for 3 - 12 months.
