The initial consultation will last between 60-90 minutes so that the practitioner get a complete picture of what is happening in the body. The practitioner takes past medical and family history, an in depth assessment of each organ and body system, as well as mental-emotional health. This allows the practitioner to carefully assess which herbs will work with each individual and their body.
After the consult, the practitioner will take 10-15 minutes to create any herbal formulas to take home that day. In some cases further research may be required before the formulas are created.
Follow up consultations are shorter in duration, and will include a review of any changes the individual may have experienced. This allows for the modification of herbal formulas and/or refills. Other follow ups can be done by phone or e-mail for quick questions or requests for refill, once the patient-practitioner relationship has been established.
Once on the same herbal formula for a few weeks to months, it is recommended that the individual come in for another follow up to re-assess any necessary changes that need to be made.
Please note, I require 24 hours for cancellation, but I understand that life happens, and if something comes up - please don't hesitate to contact me.
If you are going to be late, please call or email to let me know. Your consultation time will still end at the agreed upon time when the appointment was made, but I will always try to accommodate.
