What happens during a naturopathic consultation?

 

During our initial consultation, Yvonne will assess your primary health concerns, the function of your body systems and evaluate your diet & lifestyle habits.

Yvonne will gather a detailed report of your health history and aim to identify the underlying cause of your presenting symptoms. Yvonne will conduct physical examinations which include blood pressure, iridology as well as tongue and nail analysis. Further investigations and pathology testing may be required at this time.

After the consultation Yvonne will spend time formulating a specialised treatment plan which is tailored to your health requirements. Here we will discuss a herbal and/or nutritional prescription (if required), outline suitable dietary modifications required and identify short term and long term goals.

Regular follow up appointments will be required to enable modification of your treatment plan to suit any ongoing individual demands of your health.

Naturopathy encompasses a holistic approach to the treatment of physical and emotional health issues.  Naturopathy supports and encourages this innate healing process through the use of appropriate changes to your diet and lifestyle combined with herbal or nutritional medicines if required.

Initial consultations last 1 hour, and follow-up consultations (usually 4- 5 weeks later) last 45 minutes.
