Health & Wellness Consultation
- Pre-consultation forms are completed and submitted along with a food and elimination diary and optional photos.
- Once I have reviewed your forms we will set up a 30-minute consultation where we will review your information together and you can clarify any questions I have.
- Then I start my detective work to better understand your health history, issues and symptoms, and I can begin to determine your root causes.
- A follow up 30-minute Skype, messenger or phone conversation will be scheduled to discuss my findings and recommended treatment plan.
- There is no obligation to move forward after this consultation. However, the $150.00 can be credited towards the Chronic Health Care Package, or a Women’s Wellness Package.
How do we start?
Once payment is received I will send you a very detailed Confidential Client Intake Form, asking comprehensive questions which provide information to assist me in finding the root cause of your problem. This is your opportunity to introduce yourself and really share your story, including your birth, your childhood, your family’s health, your emotions, your diet, lifestyle, exercise and about how the problem began, your symptoms, what makes it better or worse. I encourage you to be as open as possible – the more details, the better. I include a health history timeline for you to complete, so we can visually relate your health circumstances to other milestones and life situations. The questionnaire is designed to search for connections between body systems and ailments. I realize that recounting your story can be a painful or an emotional process. It may also prompt you to begin reflecting on areas in your life that, consciously or subconsciously, cause stress or dysfunction and may actually be sabotaging your wellbeing. But also, it can be a starting place to heal.
I also request complete details of any medications or supplements (herbal or nutritional) that you are taking (brand name and dosage), along with copies of any medical test results (blood, urine, etc.) that you have had within the last 12 months and/or letters from medical specialists that you have received within the last 12 months – longer if they relate to your primary condition.
Besides reviewing your health history and diet, I also offer iridology and read the body with nail, tongue, and facial diagnostics. You may submit optional photos of your iris, areas of your face, your nails and tongue. If applicable, I may request some non-invasive relevant physical exams and naturopathic assessments. These can be done by you with the help of a partner or friend.
Where appropriate I offer naturopathy modalities, highlighting one or more that will be the most beneficial for your situation, and providing other options from a range of nutritional supplements such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, aromatherapy, flower remedies, and or homeobotanicals. I am certainly not a naturopath that gives you a long, often expensive prescription to purchase. I do not want any of my clients ending up with a supplement graveyard in their homes. My main focus is on the application of diet and what you eat everyday, but also often more importantly what you are digesting and absorbing from your food. In addition, lifestyle including stress management, sleep and exercise which are also the basic foundations of health. Herbal and nutritional medicine can support this.
I recommend only high-quality supplements that are free of synthetics and fillers and are available for purchase only through practitioners. Pricing varies, but clients enrolled in a Chronic Health Care Package or Women’s Wellness Package receive a 15% discount (New Zealand only).
Fees for any supplements, remedies, and laboratory tests, etc.. Charges for these items are separate.
Supplements and herbal remedies can be shipped within New Zealand for a small postage fee.
