Frequently Asked Questions
How many visits will I need?
We treat the whole person, not just the symptoms so this will depending on your health and the wellbeing goals. However, you may expect to visit your naturopath on average 2 – 6 times to achieve your desired outcome.
Over the age of 40 we recommend a health check up every 6 – 12 months.
Will additional tests be required?
We’ll take into account your current medical history and work with whatever medication you are currently taking. In addition we may specify either blood, salivary or stool analysis for diagnosis or monitoring of your health. Testing at a pathology lab is at an additional cost.
