Do I have to do anything before my first appointment?

Prior to your initial consultation you will be required to complete and submit a health questionnaire to provide us with your current and previous health history. This gives us time to review your health details and ensures time is not wasted during your initial appointment in collecting this information.

 

What will be discussed in my initial consultation?

This will depend on your health complaint but generally the following topics will be discussed; the reason for your visit, your health goals, review of your health history, your current physical condition, lifestyle, diet, stress, mental and emotional concerns, alcohol, drug, medication and tobacco use, sleep and exercise.

 

How often will I need to have a consultation?

This varies from person to person and will depend on the severity of your health complaint and the condition of your overall health. As your condition improves, the length between visits will also extend.

For example, a naturopathic consultation for a serious health condition may require a consultation every one to two weeks for the first 4-6 weeks extending to monthly and bi-monthly, six-monthly and so on as your health condition improves. For a minor health complaint only 1-2 visits may be all that is required to get your health back on track.
