The Naturopathic Consultation …
An initial appointment will take an 1 hour, in which your health goals, medical history, family history, general lifestyle and any other information will be reviewed in order to design a treatment program specifically suited to your needs. Many questions will be asked on different body systems to help put together the pieces of your health picture.
If you have any recent blood or pathology tests, bring them along as well as Cassi is adept at reviewing pathology and integrating it with your symptom picture to see what potential underlying causes are contributing to your health imbalance.
The hour consult also includes:
- Tongue analysis
- Nail analysis
- Iris analysis
- Blood Pressure
If needs be, additional pathology tests such as bloods, pyrrole testing or salivary hormones may be requested depending upon your condition. The need for this will be assessed in your initial consult.
A cellular health assessment (also known as Bio Impedance test) may be done depending upon your health condition, and is valuable if weight loss is your goal. This non-invasive test measures your fat to muscle ratio, hydration levels, Body Mass Index, cellular toxicity levels and gives a biological age. Our biological age is very important, as it tells us what age our cells really are. For example, your birth age may be 42, but due to inflammation, toxicity, chronic conditions etc, your biological age may be 65! By working on yourself, changing negative lifestyle patterns, reducing inflammation, losing weight etc you can turn that age around and actually be younger than your birth age.
As part of the consultation, an individual wellness program will then be developed to help you achieve your health goals. Follow-up consultations may be needed to monitor your wellness progress and reassess your needs.
