Medical Consults with our Naturopathic Doctor
Your naturopathic medical consults occur over 60min for your first two visits, followed by either 60 or 30min follow-ups as directed by your doctor. You will meet with the doctor to review your medical history, review of your current diet and lifestyle habits, nutritional supplements dose and prescription and medication, dose and prescription and a detailed body systems and composition assessment. Then the doctor may recommended lab tests, both general blood labs, as well as biomedical, for you to do. You will review these results in your follow-up visit, which may include reviewing tests done by other physicians in your care team. A treatment program is then put together for you, with accountability calls and follow-up consults to re-assess your progress. Prescriptions include: dietary changes, meal plans, supplements, herbal medicine and lifestyle therapies. All prescriptions are given with your current medication and diagnoses in mind and follow evidence-based research.
Vitamin B12 Injections and Nebulized Glutathione Inhalation Sessions
Vitamin B12 injections are the best way to absorb B12 and to support increasing energy and detoxification. Vitamin B12 injections are given after your bloodwork has been run and your symptom picture meets the requirements. Patients typically receive their first and second injections in the clinic and then learn how to self-administer at home, due to the frequency needed for the injections. Injection appointments can be booked alone, 15min in length, or included in your consultation. Inhaled nebulized glutathione for anti-oxidant and liver detoxification support. Excellent 3x/week for an acute chest cold or upper respiratory infection. Also excellent 1x/week for 4-6 treatments for post-concussion support to clear brain fog. Each inhaled session lasts 25-30min. Patients are required to purchase their own mask, $10.
Your naturopathic prescription will come with a lot of dietary, lifestyle and behavioural changes, which can be hard to implement. We offer mandatory nutrition and healthy living culture classes for all new patients and accountability follow-up calls to make sure you understand your treatment plan, find ways to implement it so that it works well for you, and have group support in making these changes, so you can be more successful. Accountability calls are conducted via video on the computer with our helpful physician assistant team, who care about you and also want to create a trusting, there-for-you relationship alongside the work you are doing with our naturopathic doctors.
