Wellness Centre Naturopathic Consultations
Naturopathic consultations are scheduled and run according to allocated times. Initial consultations last one hour. Follow up appointments are 30 or 60 minutes and you will be charged based on the time spent in consultation.
Once you have scheduled your appointment, you will be emailed details of a website to fill out a questionnaire prior to your appointment. A hard copy can be picked up or posted from the Wellness Centre and this needs to be dropped back or posted so it is received at least 1 day before scheduled appointment. This questionnaire will cover your general health and will provide valuable information for the Naturopath.
The initial appointment is structured to understand your health complaints in as much detail as possible. Together you will discuss your health history, the Naturopath will conduct a physical assessment as indicated and discuss your health history. Initial consultations may include a comprehensive case history, naturopathic diagnostic techniques e.g. iridology, tongue diagnosis and more. Initial treatment recommendations and a treatment plan overview. Initial appointments last for at least one hour.
Second appointments are usually scheduled 1-3 weeks later where you will review the treatment plan in more detail. Agreed apon, appropriate and affordable supplements, herbal or homeopathic medicines may be prescribed any time from the initial consultation depending on patients outcomes and budget. This session may be 30 minutes to 1 hr depending on the clients needs.
Follow up appointments
Further appointments are dependant on your health issues at hand. Patients visits are usually more regular in the initial stages and then on a monthly basis until your health has stabilised.
The primary focus is to reduce your symptoms and to stabilise your condition as soon as possible.
Maintenance & support treatment
The second part of treatment is where we focus on treating the underlying causes of your presenting conditions. Without understanding and addressing the underlying causes of health issues the symptoms are likely to eventually return or may return in another form.
This stage of treatment is where we have successfully eliminated your complaint and are able to offer you improved levels of health and wellbeing. Patients tend to seek treatment on an as needed basis (typically 1-2x/year) to ensure long term health and wellbeing.
In addition, patients seek treatment during important life cycle stages such as pregnancy, birth and labour, breastfeeding, puberty or palliative care.
Treatment results will vary.. Some can notice quick resolution of their problems where other more deep seated problems may take several months or more. The longer you have been suffering from the complaint probably the longer you will require treatment. The healing and recovery process takes time especially where the outcome is to arrive at a truly improved state of health & wellness.
