3. What happens in a consultation?
Naturopathic consultations involve listening to each individual’s health story. During your initial visit, an in-depth and detailed healthy history is taken, including detailed medical, diet and exercise history, as well as lifestyle and occupational habits to help our practitioners gain a holistic view of your health picture. An initial Naturopathic consultation is generally half an hour in length, depending upon the case. At the conclusion of the initial consultation, a treatment plan is recommended. Since Naturopathic philosophy recognizes and respects that each person is unique, therefore the healing plan (program) that is developed must be reflective of each person’s individuality. The program is based on each individual’s goals, abilities, as well as limitations. The program is also designed so each person feels comfortable with it and is able to easily integrate it into his or her daily life.
