Naturopathic consultation, consists of the completion of a comprehensive health questionnaire which covers medical history, supplements taken, medications prescribed from GP, nature of presenting problem e.g. pain, tiredness. A complete dietary record is taken for a typical day, including amount of water, snack foods, coffee, tea, alcohol and other drugs.
We then discuss your preferred outcome from the visit and prioritise treatment. At the end of the consultation, a range of supplement or herbal remedies will be discussed with the option of purchasing any considered appropriate to help with your general well being.
The supplements are "practitioner only" and are restricted for use by health care professionals. Once the initial appointment has been completed, supplements are available for purchase over the counter between follow up consultations i.e. an appointment is not necessary every time a repeat is required, however, cases will require review within a reasonable time frame to ensure that the supplement supplied is the best option for long term use.
As a general rule, a follow up appointment is booked for 2 weeks following the initial, to ensure that you are starting to feel better and to review supplements. If Bowen Therapy has been chosen, three visits will be booked, one week apart, followed by a complete review. Most clients feel significantly better, or at least better within themselves within 3 - 4 appointments.
