The Naturopathic consultation is built around listening to each individual’s health story. An in-depth and detailed case history is taken to gain the person’s whole health picture. At the end of each visit a Naturopathic treatment plan is formulated. Naturopathic Medicine recognizes and respects that each person is unique and therefore the treatment plan is reflective of this. The treatment plan is based on each individual’s goals, abilities, and interests. A person’s treatment plan will change and develop as they continue on their path to optimal wellness.
The naturopathic consultation may differ from seeing your family doctor. Medical doctors typically focus on the treatment of the symptoms of an illness or disease. Naturopaths however, are more interested in the underlying cause of an illness.
Naturopathic consultations are typical longer than consultations with conventional medical doctors. A first visit typically takes 1 hour. A thorough assessment of your health needs is made which includes examining all aspects of your current and past medical history. Subsequent sessions are usually 30 minutes but depend on the condition being assessed or treated.
