What happens during the first visit? (New Patient Information)
A case history is done to get an overall picture of your health and to underlying causes that may be contributing to your concerns. During the consult sometimes physical exams and energetic testing is performed to gain further clues pointing to possible causes. The first visit will help educate and clarify the patient about the various techniques and approaches to improving your health. It is important to get clarity about the right fit in regards to a treatment plan.
Will I see results immediately?
The response to treatment varies from patient to patient because no two people are the same. Treatments offered such as dietary improvements, detoxification, exercise, stress management almost universally improve health of a patient but may not always resolve the present symptoms. To address the true cause of a condition it often requires intervention on nutritional, structural, emotional and some would agree spiritual levels. Healing of any chronic concern often takes time. Addressing a lifelong exposure to toxins, emotional stresses and degeneration simply cannot be addressed in a couple of months. The typical recommendation for treatment is one month of treatment per year of having the condition. The primary job of your Naturopathic Physician is to improve your wellness and to help prevent further degeneration and disease, not mask a symptom.
