Frequently Asked Questions

  • What conditions do you work with?
    Naturopathy views health holistically and works with a wide range of conditions. Our focus is on diet and lifestyle as the most important factors in improving your health for long-lasting changes. We also use supplements & herbs when required. If you align with this holistic approach we would be excited to work with you.
  • What is Naturopathy?
    Naturopathy is a holistic healthcare system that uses science and traditional healing methods to support your health. We believe all body systems need to work in harmony not only to prevent disease but to maintain optimal health. We do this using lifestyle, diet, herbal medicine, and supplements.
  • When can I expect to see results?
    It depends, there is no one answer as everyone’s health challenges and current health status is different. Results are also reliant on what action you are willing to take and how fast or slow you want to implement our recommendations.
  • What happens at my first consultation
    When you book, you will be asked to complete a health questionnaire before the consultation. Questionnaires provide insight into your health so we can be more specific during your consultation. During the consult, we delve deeper into your symptoms and factors affecting your health. We also complete basic physical exams as required. All the information provided, helps us to create a personalized health plan that we discuss with you typically a week later.
  • How many times do I need to see you?
    It depends and this is because health is individual and we do not use a cookie-cutter approach. We want to help you reach your health goals in a way that is sustainable. If you are coming for a general check then it may only be 1-2 appointments. For chronic health conditions, it will take longer depending on the state of your underlying health and how quickly your body responds.
