How Naturopathic Doctors Help You!
Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are primary healthcare providers and, as such, are able to help with almost any health concern. People of all ages with virtually all chronic and most acute conditions may benefit from treatment by a Naturopathic Doctor.
Our health is closely linked to diet, lifestyle, environment, emotional health, and social and spiritual fulfillment! At the Dragonfly Naturopathic Clinic our goal is to help you to understand the factors that affect you and may be preventing you from achieving that feeling of well-being that has eluded you! We have seen patients achieve a level of health and vitality that they have never had before or not since they were quite young! You have the capacity to change your state of health and we can develop plans and be a part of that journey with you!
What to Expect During an Initial Naturopathic Consultation
During the initial one hour consultation, the ND will take a thorough history so that the underlying issues surrounding your condition or concern can be addressed. A physical examination with clothes on (not internal) will also aid the ND in ascertaining what path to take. The ND will then determine which lifestyle, nutritional, herbal, homeopathic or other types of therapy may best suit your case at which point a joint decision with you will be made as to how best to proceed.
The follow-up visits are usually ½ hour in length and the 2nd visit will usually be within 3-4 weeks of the initial consultation. During that time the ND may ask you to get blood tests or other information gathering as well as start the initial treatment protocol. During the second visit a full plan is usually completed and you will generally not need to return for at least another month.
