What to Expect in the First Consultation
In order to provide you with the most effective healing protocol, it is important for me to get as much information as possible about all of your health concerns, history, lifestyle, diet, medications/supplements you’re taking, etc. For this reason, I schedule a first consulation that lasts for 90-120 minutes.
During this time, we sit comfortably and talk. You will have my undivided attention. I will ask you questions, and give you the opportunity to provide me with the info I need in order to help you. You will also have the chance to ask me any questions or voice any concerns you may have with regards to improving your health. Consultations are private and are kept strictly confidential.
After the First Consultation
Occasionally I will give you a remedy to take home at the end of our initial consultation. Otherwise, I will take a bit of time to review all the information you’ve given me. I will then prepare a treatment protocol for you, which will include one or more herbal remedies.
The treatment protocol is designed to support you in the process of restoring and maintaining health and wellness. It usually involves some nutritional and lifestyle health suggestions. I may, for example, offer simple recipe ideas that will help to bring certain healing foods into your diet. Or, I may recommend a particular type of exercise that would be helpful for you.
The herbal remedy I provide will be customized to you, for your particular health needs. It may be a tincture of herbs extracted into an alcohol or glycerin base. It may be a blend of dried herbs that you can brew into a medicinal tea. It may be a topical healing salve, made of herbs infused in an oil and beeswax base. It may include a flower essence, which helps with clearing and processing of emotions, thereby creating space for more healing of physical ailments.
The treatment protocol and the remedies will be available for you within a few days to one week following your initial consultation.
When you receive your remedies and protocol, we will meet again briefly (usually for about 20 minutes) to go over the protocol and dosage instructions together. You will also have the chance to ask any questions that may come up. This meeting is included in the cost of your initial consult.
Many people begin to see health improvements immediately, or soon after beginning their treatment . Older or more chronic health concerns may take longer to shift. On average, improvements are seen within 2-3 weeks after the first consultation.
After you’ve begun a treatment protocol, we’ll arrange to meet for a second consultation. This gives us a chance to check in, see how you’re doing, refill any remedies or make changes to them if necessary and address any new health concerns or questions that may come up for you.
If the remedy and protocol seem to be working well, the follow-up consultation will be shorter than the initial one (usually 30-40 minutes). If necessary, we can schedule a longer follow-up consult.
I usually schedule a follow-up 3-6 weeks after the initial one. After that, I will continue to see you for monthly or bi-monthly follow-ups as the treatment progresses. We will do this until you and I decide together that your treatment is complete.
