Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy
Nutritional Therapy is a great way to help you regain control of your health and understand more about where you are at now, how you got there and what you need to do to improve your health out come and sense of well being. 'Naturopathic' refers to an approach to health that tries, if at all possible, to work with the wishes of a person and the healing dynamic of the body rather than imposing upon it. Although this is not always possible, there are always natural elements to a programme that can improve outcomes and perceived wellbeing.
A consultation in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy will typically take about one and a half to two hours. Prior to this, a 7 day diet diary and a Pre Consultation Questionnaire is sent to you to be filled in and returned with any other relevant information such as test results and prescription drug history that will enable prep for your particular health goals. During a consultation, as much information is gathered relevant to your situation to help to determine what is going on. The need for tests - usually at an additional cost if high tech - can be discussed/carried out. These can include allergy testing, genetic testing (used for various conditions and can help to make weight loss programs more effective) vitamin and mineral status, for example. Some tests can be performed and the results found on the spot. Some will need to be sent away for analysis, others will need to be ordered for you to carry out at home . A plan that includes diet and lifestyle is negotiated with you, for you to take away. Supplements may or may not be included according to your preference. A follow up appointment of 45 minutes to an hour is usually scheduled for 4 - 6 weeks later to review progress.
