What is included in a Naturopathic Consultation?
Your 90 minute consultation starts with a detailed intake form. This is where you get to tell YOUR story! What are your goals? What have you tried in the past? What has worked? What hasn't worked? At Live In Wellness we want to fully understand your goals and expectations and working through the intake form sets the stage. What is included and what tools may be used if more information is needed to triangulate the issues.
Muscle Response Testing (MRT):
Did you know there are points on the body that can provide feedback associated with water intake, hydrochloric acid, digestive enzymes, and much more? MRT may be new to many of you, but the information obtained with this type of biofeedback is invaluable.
Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET - BASIC 15):
To achieve optimum health and balance, it"s important to identify if allergies are impacting your well-being. Testing of the Basic 15 is included with the Naturopathic Consultation. We've provided a sheet of NAET's Basic 15 Avoidances to help speed your healing during these ongoing session. For detailed information please review the NAET page under services.
Loomis' Palpatory Diagnostic Response Testing Points:
This provides a logical and sequential review of the physiology and biochemistry of disease prevention. The philosophy behind the Loomis System® is based on the vital premise that the body possesses an innate intelligence to heal and maintain itself - given the proper amounts of air, water, nutrients, and exercise. It is our goal to identify those organs struggling to do their part toward maintaining homeostasis. We're gathering information on the biochemistry and use of food enzymes - protease, lipase, amylase, cellulase, and others- to enable the body to properly maintain homeostasis. Recognition of specific enzyme deficiencies, related nutritional syndromes, and locating signs of stress are vital to helping what your body is asking for from you. We will be looking for deviations from homeostasis and correlate these deviations with specific nutritional recommendations. These points will address diet, digestion, bowel elimination, absorption, the autonomic nervous system, the immune system, and the endocrine system.
Emotional well-being and health are deeply intertwined. During the consultation, after clearing sugar with NAET, if applicable, we identify and clear as many emotions as your body will allow. For more detailed information please review the Emotion Code page under Services.
IF MORE INFORMATION IS REQUIRED TO TRIANGULATE AN ISSUE THE FOLLOWING MODALITIES MAY ALSO BE USED DURING YOUR INITIAL CONSULTATION. PLEASE NOTE, THESE APPOINTMENTS ARE SPECIFIC TO YOUR NEEDS, AND NOT EVERYONE NEEDS THE SAME TESTING.
They say "the eyes are the window into the soul". We know that they are a window into health, too. Important information about organs and body systems can be obtained by looking into the eye. During this part of the consultation a pen light and a magnifying glass may be used to view the iris.
Face, Tongue, and Nail Observations:
Amber may ask to see your nails, she might also look at your face, and even ask you to stick your tongue out at her. (The kids love this one!). She is reading the "story" your body is telling. This is valuable information that will help inform the client about their current health. Many times as soon as she looks at you she's making a note of what systems are exhibiting signs of stress...without you even knowing.
Reams Biological Ionization Testing (RBTI):
RBTI is a way to balance the body; energy in versus energy out. This method was created by Dr. Carey Reams and provides information about sugar, pH, salt, detoxification, and ureas within your body. Clients are often thrilled to know that their seemingly random complaints can be explained when reviewing test results. For the most accurate results please remember to eat a snack approximately 2 hours before your appointment. *Please note not all appointments require a sample, this will be determined at your consultation...but better to be prepared.
Bach Flower Remedy:
Bach Flower remedies are a safe and natural method of healing. They gently restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, hatred, and indecision which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. You will receive a personalized Bach Flower remedy based upon the questionnaire complete with your intake form. The Bach Flower remedies allow peace and happiness to return so that the body is free to heal itself. For more information please visit The Bach Centre.
