When you visit Fresh Perceptions Health expect the first consultation to last one hour approximately. During this time we take your case history.
Because naturopathy treats the whole person, this case history gathers information about all aspects of your health. By looking at the whole person we can see how the symptom you present with relates to other symptoms or other weakness in your body. By addressing these weaknesses we can remove the symptom. If we just address the symptom without addressing the underlying problem, the symptom will return.
At the first consultation we jointly agree a plan of action. This plan may cover natural solutions such as diet, exercise, stress management, time management or relaxation. It may also be supported by a herbal formula.
We will also arrange a follow up appointment – usually two to three sessions. These follow up appointments last around 30 minutes and are important in assessing progress.
