The first consultation takes an hour and involves a thorough investigation into your personal health history, diet and other lifestyle factors such as stress levels, chemical exposure, amount of exercise taken etc. This allows me to get a complete overview of your body system.
During the first consultation, I will encourage you to explore your health goals. I will then work with you to create a health plan which is manageable for you and your lifestyle. At this time I may prescribe herbal medicine, nutritional supplements or dietary and lifestyle changes.
I may also use diagnostic techniques such as Iridology, fingernail or tongue diagnosis, vitamin and mineral assessment or urine testing to confirm my diagnosis. Ocassionally, I will request further blood tests or allergy testing if required.
Follow up consultations are generally between 2-4 weeks after the first consultation. These usually last between 20-40 minutes and are valuable to ensure that progress is being made and that your health is being maintained.
