The first consultation will take about 1 hour this is because a thorough assessment of client health status needs to be made. Generally what can be expected in the first assessment is a thorough case history, blood pressure, weight check, nail, tongue and stool analysis, iridology. This assists to gain a holistic health picture attempting to identify the root cause of your health issue responsible for the imbalance (such as lifestyle, diet & environmental factors at work & home) and assess which of the body’s channels/ systems have been affected.
My aim is to treat the whole body and identify the underlying causes of your health issues not just the symptoms so you not only get well but stay well by identifying the causative factors.
Be sure to bring in with you a copy of any tests you may have had done recently (eg hormone tests, iron levels, blood pressure readings etc
Upon analysis health, lifestyle and dietary advice is given and if necessary nutritional and or herbal supplementation may be prescribed. My goal is to optimize wellness by encouraging clients to make lifestyle changes with support for their own personal health – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
We will work together on a health plan with measurable goals to meet your expected outcome, needs, desires. Quality of life can be improved with lifestyle and dietary changes.
If subsequent sessions are likely they will be for a shorter period, depending on the condition experienced. The following steps will generally form the basis for any naturopathic consultation:
Diet and nutritional analysis
Stool, Nail, Tongue analysis
