What will I be asked?
When you make an appointment I will forward you a question sheet.
(If you don’t have email I can post it to you or you can collect from clinic).
These are general questions to save time at initial visit.
At initial consultation I will ask many questions (about an hour of them) including health history, symptoms, duration etc..
These questions will give me an indication of the cause of your symptoms as this is not always apparent from the current symptoms.
Some of the questions a Naturopath asks do not make sense to the client at the time, or seem irrelevant to the symptom(s), however, as we work from a holistic point of view we cover all body systems, not simply the symptom itself.
