What To Expect

Naturopathic treatment focus' on uncovering the underlying cause of your health concern.

To assist your body in the healing process, I may recommend lifestyle and dietary changes, nutritional supplements or herbal medicine. These have been tested extensively and are safe, however, some nutritional supplements and herbal medicine may interact with prescribed medications and conditions. For this reason it is important that you advise me of all medications that you’re currently on and if your doctor changes or adds any medications to your treatment. 

Under no circumstances are you to stop taking prescribed medicine from your doctor. This is something that you need to decide with them and under their supervision. 

Any chronic symptoms or illness will not have come on over night and it is a process to get to this state and It will also be a process to return back to being well. By ensuring that you take any prescriptions that I have recommended and following the dietary guidelines I have suggested this process will work a lot better for you and you will have a better outcome. Each person is unique and it may take time to adjust your prescription to get a positive outcome.

This is a general outline of what to expect in your consultations, however,  no two patient consultations are the same. Each treatment plan is tailor made for every patient.
