WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR 1-ON-1 NATUROPATHIC CONSULT

VISITING YOUR FAMILY MEDICAL DOCTOR IS NOT the same as seeing a Naturopathic Doctor (ND).

The medical models of care that MDs and NDs use with their patients/clients are very different. MDs tend to focus on reactive healthcare; utilizing pharmaceutical prescriptions or surgeries when appropriate. Reactive healthcare is imperative in emergent, life threatening or severe physical injuries or poisonings. We need Medical doctors for this type of care.

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) on the other hand are natural health care providers who specialize in preventative healthcare, acute and chronic disease management optimizing living strategies. We are detectives for your health, combining your medical history, symptoms, lab tests and physical examinations to understand the patterns of imbalance you are presenting and finding the root causes for your imbalances.

NDs are health detectives to understand the patterns and trait of imbalance.

Where reactive care can no longer safely suppress symptoms or cut out a diseased organ, we can provide empowering lifestyle changes to reverse the cause of distress and improve quality of life. We give clients back autonomy and responsibility for their health.

Naturopathic medicine is the merging of Western science with Eastern traditional medicine to promote healing of the whole person (mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually) from the root of the issue.

Naturopathic medicine supports the body to heal itself, not suppress symptoms .

1-ON-1 INITIAL NATUROPATHIC VISIT.

During your first visit, you will spend 45 (children) to 90 (adults) minutes with Dr. Omana, it can be in person, by phone or Health Portal System (HIPPA approved). During this 1-on-1 consultation, the specific condition will be directed to deliver a result, a result that the client really wants. Dr. Omana will go over your intake paperwork with you, gathering information on the history of your illness, reviewing previous lab work done, getting a clear picture of your current symptoms, and previous treatments and therapies you have done. She will assess the function of your cells with a non-invasive ES-C scan (not suitable for children under 12 years of age, during pregnancy or pacemaker placement) yielding a printable report (one copy for you and another copy for our file) to serve as a road map for your health, this report includes a list of food sensitivities with foods that you can and cannot eat for the next 30 days and a shopping list. We highly recommend repeating this scan every 30 days, but it can be optional according to your health improvement.

She will also go over the medications and supplements that you take. Your willingness to be fully open and honest during this time is very important – the more honest you can be, the better we are able to help you. Your commitment and determination to improve your health is a pivotal key for your balance.

Once the doctor obtains all the information, she will give you her clinical impressions of your imbalances, and how she would like to approach your specific imbalance. If she feels that lab work is necessary, she will outline what she would like to run and the process for doing that. The program includes a basic lab work. Additional labs will cost extra. Recommended as needed.

Finally, the doctor will develop a personalized program based on your imbalances. The individualized protocol will include recommendations for your beginning stages of improvement such as follow-up visits, nutrition modifications, lifestyle factors, basic lab testing, emotional release, homeopathic, botanicals (herbs) and/ or other supplements. Dr. Omana provides support for questions through emails phone calls or texting.

Although, sometimes comprehensive protocols depend on lab results being in, she will usually get you started on a program to get you feeling better right away.

Follow-up Consultations

Follow up visits are anywhere from 2-4 weeks after the initial, depending on pending lab work. These visits are shorter, 30 minutes for children and 45 minutes for adults.

Depending on your imbalance(s), the number of follow-up visits will vary from 5 to 10 according to the length of your program. During follow up consultations, the doctor will ask you how you have been feeling since the previous visit; how things might have changed with the health and protocol plan; and an outline of what symptoms are better, which are worse/ new symptoms, and which are unchanged. Having lists prepared for the doctor is tremendously helpful – medication/ supplement lists, symptom lists and a list of questions you may have for her. Proper follow up is the single most important aspect of your treatment because it allows us to monitor your progress and change therapies as necessary to ensure that your progression towards health is as quick and smooth as possible. As your health improves, you will need less frequent follow-ups.
