Initial Naturopath Appointments
Our initial Naturopath appointment structure is broken up into three separate appointments. They are very patient focused, improving overall results, patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes.
1st Fact Finding Appointment: 30 minute appointment where our Naturopath listens to your health goals and concerns, collecting all the information necessary to best discern what is causing the health ailment that you are seeking help for and how to appropriately treat this.
2nd Testing Appointment: 30 minute appointment where various tests such as iridology, tongue analysis, nail analysis, zinc mineral testing, body composition/fat analysis, BMI, urine analysis, ABO blood type test, blood glucose, blood pressure, waist circumference, sit and reach test and grip strength are used to evaluate your body’s condition. Medical tests will be requested if necessary. Our Naturopath will then spend a further 30 minutes researching your health ailments and developing your treatment plan.
3rd Report of Findings Appointment: 30 minute appointment where our Naturopath educates you with their naturopathic findings, health restoration proposal and your tailored treatment plan. This may include herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, celloid minerals, flower essences, diet, lifestyle recommendations, stress management and specific exercise plans. The report of findings appointment occurs a few days after the first appointments.
Follow Up Naturopath Appointments
Follow up appointments are important to educate and review patient’s conditions, health goals, treatment plan and to make any necessary changes to fit the patient’s needs.
Ear Candling Consultations
Ear candling is an intensive, pleasant and completely painless procedure. Ear candles are placed gently in the ear, the outer end is lit and gentle lymphatic massage is applied around the neck area. The flame from the ear candle creates a gentle warm air vacuum in the auditory canal that draws out old wax, debris and infection. The lymphatic massage assists the lymphatic system to detoxify any toxins around this area. You will hear a slight crackling sound as the impacted wax is gently vacuumed out.
Ear candling consultations are available by appointment, following a brief assessment with our qualified Naturopath. Our Naturopath only uses 100% pure beeswax and unbleached cotton ear candles.
Food Intolerance Test Appointments
Food intolerance is not life threatening however it can make the sufferer feel extremely unwell. It is estimated that 45percent of the population is affected by food intolerances. The symptoms of food intolerance can be delayed for many hours or even days later, therefore it is often difficult to identify the problem foods.
Food intolerance tests are simple, safe, accurate and fast only taking 40 minutes to perform in clinic. The food detective tests for IgG antibody reactions to 59 commonly eaten foods. The test is performed using a blood sample from a finger prick that is diluted then added to the food detective testing tray (containing small spots of food proteins extracts). In subsequent steps, the use of detector and developer solutions, identify the presence of food antibodies through the appearance of one or more blue spots on the tray.
Phone and Skype Appointments
Appointments for telephone consultations are available however the initial naturopathic appointments must be face to face. Face to face follow up appointments must be conducted at least every 12 months. Health fund rebates are not claimable for telephone consultations.
In the event that tests are required from a functional pathology laboratory, these can be forwarded to your postal address. Similarly any herbal, nutritional, celloid, flower essence or homeopathic remedies that are recommended for treatment can be posted to you at your request.
“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity” - (Hippocrates)
Working With Other Practitioners
Most treatment can be supported using natural therapies, including those where it may be necessary to work in conjunction with your doctor (for example, if you are taking prescribed medication, or require certain tests).
