What can I expect?
First visit: A complete assessment reviewing your current concerns and health history. Your Naturopathic Doctor will also want to ensure that you have had relevant nutrient and other metabolic-based blood tests ordered recently to ensure they have a complete picture of any obstacles that may be standing in your way of achieving optimal weight loss. Food intolerance testing and/or hormone testing might also be recommended at this time. Finally, a body composition and waist to hip measurements will be assessed in order to establish a base line for comparison.
Second visit: Blood work and any other diagnostic test results will be reviewed along with the start of your treatment plan including a cleansing plan, nutritional guidelines, natural supplements and menu planning idea's.
Long term support: As many of us have experienced, weight loss is typically not easy to maintain. It is often very helpful to receive supervision, accountability and inspiration in order to facilitate long term success. Troubleshooting, lab test re-assessments, body composition re-testing and measurements along with new meal plan recommendations are all provided to keep you inline with your weight loss goals.
