What to expect at a consultation

Kwinana Naturopath is run from the rear of my house in Medina. Follow the path from the parking area, along the side of the house where you can see an array of herbal plants along the way. Once inside you will need to fill out a form containing contact details, brief medical history, allergies, current medication, etc.

Your initial consultation lasts an hour, and subsequent follow up consultations are 30 minutes. Depending on the nature of your visit, dictates how many weeks apart the consultation are advised.

After our brief introduction I like to start the consultation with Irridology. This is where I take photos of your eyes and look at them on the computer screen. This gives me an indication of organs or systems of the body that may need attention, and also an insight into your overall health.

Once this is done we get into the reasons behind why you have made the decision to see me today. You may have come with a specific ailment, or have an area of your health you would like support with. Whatever the purpose of your visit, I will be asking about other body systems and areas of your life. Straight forward, honest answers are the best as it gives me a better understanding of you, and which of our services will be most useful in improving your health.

Body composition such as muscle and fat mass, hydration and fluid status are also assessed, providing a deeper insight into your health and allowing me to closely monitor your treatment progress.

Whatever your reasons for coming, each of you is treated individually, no two prescription are the same. While you may have come in for one area of your body, I will often be treating other areas as they are all so intrinsically linked.

Treatment prescriptions most often include nutritional and herbal supplementation, which can be in the form of tablets, liquid herbals, drops or powders. Dietary and lifestyle advice is also given. Children have their own range of palatable supplements, liquids or drops.

You may also be recommended to have further testing. This is either taken in the clinic, in a pathology lab or as an easy to use kit to take home.

Whatever your reasons may be, better health can be yours. Firstly by acknowledging something is not right, then taking the first step toward a happier, healthier, productive and more vibrant you. I look forward to meeting you and supporting you in your journey to improved health.

Call me on 0424 442 773 or send me an email through my contact form if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment. I look forward to speaking with you!
