Finding the Cause
Treating the Whole Person
Step 1 - Consultation
Initial consultations are a vital start to your process of healing. A main Principle of Naturopathic Practice is to treat the cause, and not just the symptoms and the dis-ease of the individual not just the diagnosis. Naturally, acute sypmptoms will be addressed as healing begins.
In order to accomplish this, a range of questions need to be answered, such as your presenting complaint/s, current medications, personal and family health history, bowel movements and emotion patterns to name a few. This allows for a clear picture of your unique situation.
Prior to your next appointment, you may be asked to complete a food diary for a week, make observations about habits, or make slight adjustments to diet and lifestyle. Physical assessments may also be performed during this time, such as a blood pressure reading, tongue, nail and iridolgy analysis.
In the interim between the first two appointments, your bespoke Treatment Protocol will be created based upon your individual needs. The Naturopath’s focus at this stage is to seek to understand the root cause (The Twig) of their clients dis-ease, which is a process which occurs upon reflection and analysis, which takes place outside of consultation time.
Step 2 - Treatment
In your follow-up appointment you will be presented with your Treatment Plan. This is designed following your consultation and naturopathic analsysis which will help you begin your individual healing journey, with awareness of and attention to the root cause of your disharmony.
Treatment Plans might suggest a commitment to practices such as of Food as Medicine, an elimination diet, or a food, mood or sleep diary. Clients have access to genome and allergy testing if they feel that they would like to fast track their treatment.
Where imbalances require intervention it may be suggested that you purchase any of the following: personalised herbal tincture; nutritional supplements; mineral therapies; nutracueticals; Bach Remedies, or a detoxification and repair strategy. Further adjustments to diet and lifestyle may be suggested, incrementally.
Depending on the complexity of the client’s needs, second consultations can take anywhere between 20 and 60 minutes. The results of your treatment will be a reflection of your commitment and compliance to your Treatment Plan. Please bear this in mind when embarking upon this journey, positive intentions, patience and commitment are key!
Find some space in your diary and your finances to focus on your health; your future; your self. We all deserve it.
