Initial Consultation

Posted by Melissa Callaghan on

How does an appointment with a Naturopath come in handy?

During an initial consultation questions will be asked which will guide the practitioner towards the root cause of your signs and symptoms. This process will delve deeper into sleep patterns, an assessment of dietary intake, an assessment of energy levels and an ability to regulate moods. In addition to this, questions will be asked regarding relevant systems of the body. This will include questions relating to digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. AND YES we WILL ask you about your stools. 

In between your first and second visit we will assess any pathology reports you may already have as well as your diet information and spend time researching all of the contributing factors to your particular signs and symptoms and create a plan tailored to you.

What is involved in a treatment plan?

Everyone is different and therefore each and every treatment plan will also be different. This is the reason why people choose to see a Naturopath as we have a holistic approach to natural health. We tailor everything just for you. Your plan may include dietary changes, or a herbal tonic, or nutritional supplements.

We start this process gradually so your body wont get a big shock and also so that you can understand what is going on, we will teach you. It has taken your body awhile to get to this stage and it may take awhile to get back on track and we are here to support you and help you achieve a positive outcome.

Who am I?

I am a Bachelor qualified Naturopath who specialises in improving metabolic processes in the body. Major areas for improvement include gut, thyroid, kidney, skin and liver health. Conditions such as hypothyroidism, fatty liver, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, type II diabetes, & irritable bowel conditions. I help my patients by giving them symptomatic relief while working on repairing the underlying causes of metabolic stress and waste accumulation. Patients experience amazing results which are seen in their blood tests with improved thyroid markers, cholesterol, and liver markers.  As well as lower blood pressure and see relief from improved gastrointestinal symptoms like the ones that mean you need to know where every single toilet is before you leave the house.
