The first consult can take up to 1.5 hours, involving a thorough review of health history, lifestyle, dietary habits, stress levels and environmental influences. Sharing your health concerns can be a therapeutic process and helps provide a comprehensive picture of what’s happening.
Some questions may seem unrelated to your specific health complaint, but as a naturopath I am interested how the different body systems connect and affect each other and your symptoms. Some non-invasive physical examinations and in-house assessments such as iridology, zinc status or pH balance testing, may be performed.
You may be prescribed a supplement, dietary or lifestyle recommendations at this first consult or be referred for further testing. An estimated timeline of your treatment will be outlined.
