An initial appointment will take between 1-2 hours in which your medical history and general lifestyle will be reviewed in order to determine a naturopathic treatment regimen suited to your individual needs.
During this time we review your questionnaire and a thorough case history is taken with the aim of identifying the core issues that need to be addressed.
You are encouraged to speak, in confidence, about anything that is troubling you. We will consider your current symptoms, how and when they started, what makes them better or worse and how they affect your daily life. Your energy levels, sleep patterns, appetite, thirst and food cravings will be taken into account. This is done to obtain a complete picture of who you are and the changes that you’d like to make in order to improve your well-being.
Treatment will encompass various different approaches to suit your individual needs, and may include lifestyle and dietary advice, detoxification, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies and aromatherapy.
Your progress will be monitored by follow-up consultations which last between 30 minutes to an hour. These tend to take place at monthly intervals.
How many appointments will I need?
This depends on the nature of your condition and the length of time that you have been suffering with it.
The aim is to activate your vital force, which will enable your body to heal itself and reach a state of equilibrium, called homeostasis. In this state, your body functions as it should and you enjoy a sense of well-being.
