What Happens During Your 90 Minute Initial Appointment?
You will find that a visit with a Naturopathic Doctor is much different than your visit with your Medical Doctor. Upon receiving your Intake Forms Dr. Carolyn will review them, as well as any lab results you may have brought with you. To uncover the root cause of your health concerns requires much “digging”. The next 90 minutes will be spent focusing on your story where Dr. Carolyn will go over your intake forms and perform an EDS Exam. During this exam she will measure anywhere from 12-25 acupuncture points located on both hands and both feet, looking for the root cause for your health care concerns. Common points she looks at during this appointment include small and large intestines, adrenal, thyroid, lymphatic, liver, kidney, gallbladder, pancreas, heart and spleen.
After the Data is Collected; Then What?
Upon accessing your EDS readings, in light of your symptoms and story, Dr. Carolyn will then make nutritional, lifestyle and dietary recommendations all designed to bring your body back into balance. You will receive a detailed printout of your readings and an easy to follow Recommendation Sheet containing your instructions, fun homework, follow-up appointments and her patient e-mail.
When Do I Come For My Follow-Up Visits?
Recognizing you are a total person with needs on many levels, and depending on what Dr. Carolyn un-covers during your Initial Appointment, she will either recommend an EDS follow-up or a LIVE Method follow-up. It is always Dr. Carolyn’s goal to meet you where you are and create a plan that sets you up for success and happiness. Most follow-up appointments are with-in four weeks of your Initial Appointment. After this, most patients see Dr. Carolyn once or twice a month for the next six months depending on their needs and goals.
When Will I Feel Better?
The majority of patients feel significantly better at the six month mark, and most experience good relief at the three month mark. A good rule of thumb with natural care is this: for every year you have experienced a particular health issue your body will require a month of targeted natural care to bring itself back into balance and health. With that being said, this is a partnership between you and Dr. Carolyn. The more committed and compliant you are, the better your results and experience will be. Remember, we are rebuilding your body from the inside out. It takes time to create a whole new you; however, once you have achieved your new self the world will never be the same. You will enjoy more energy, more vitality and more happiness! You will be free to fully live!
