What To Expect During a Consultation
During your first consultation we discuss your health concerns, medical history and current environmental factors that may be influencing your wellbeing, such as exercise, nutrition and stress levels. The first consult also includes a Live Blood Screen which will help determine the most effective treatment for you based on signs and indications identified in your blood.
From here we look at treatment options that best suit your health needs and lifestyle. These may include herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle recommendations, which can be used safely in conjunction with other alternative and conventional health practices.
Follow up visits are aimed at assessing your progress and adapting treatment strategies to best suit changes to your condition and overall health, as well as providing further education for you to maintain optimal health long term. No fixed number of visits are required.

LIVE BLOOD SCREENING
Live Blood Screening is a form of live blood analysis that helps your practitioner identify and treat your health problems faster and better than ever before.
Using only one or two drops of blood, your practitioner will use Live Blood Screening to investigate the size, shape, associations, ratios and fine structure of the red cells white cells and platelets in your blood. Results provide a general overview of your wellbeing and are used to guide your treatment plan to ensure accurate and efficient prescribing.
This screening tool also allows you to see the results as well as feel them. By displaying your living blood on a video monitor, your practitioner can show you the features that indicate health problems. Over time, with proper treatment you will be able to see these problems disappear as you achieve better health.
Live Blood Screening can help monitor a number of conditions directly affecting the blood (such as anaemia) and also indicate instances of:
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Organ/system dysfuncitons
- Certain biochemical imbalances
- Immune system imbalances
Iridology acts as a tool for determining appropriate therapies based on constitutional signs in the iris (eye) that indicate personal and genetic predispositions and strengths, often used during Naturopathic consultations.
This technique can also be given as a single reading, with a descriptive analysis to take home with you.
