What Can I Expect During My First Visit To A Naturopathic Doctor?
Once the patient's history has been taken, the Naturopath may do a screening physical, which is a standard physical examination supplemented by in-depth questions, and may seek laboratory testing
or diagnostic imaging of the complaint.  After the intake and physical are completed, the Naturopath will discuss the treatment plan or protocol with the

If needed, the patient will be referred for laboratory or other diagnostic tests, or to their medical doctor for further consultation.  Follow-up visits are scheduled
from one to four weeks after treatment has begun.  If a chronic illness is being addressed, the patient can expect to undergo at least one month of treatment

What Conditions Can Naturopathic Medicine Treat?

Often, long-term underlying disturbances such as nutritional deficiencies or excesses, rather than the presenting health problem, must be corrected in order to allow the body to reassert its natural state of optimal health. Our elders called these "Impediments to Cure."
