Q. What should I bring to the first consultation?
A. Please bring any test results you have in your possession, names and doses of all medications (natural and pharmacological) that you’re taking, a list of questions (it’s easy to forget important things in consultation). if you’re coming in for a dysbiosis test bring a urine sample (mid stream, first morning). It also helps to keep a food diary for a few days before your appointment.
Q. Are the consultation costs covered by private health insurance?
A. Yes, if your policy covers naturopathy (check with your fund).
Q. Should I tell my doctor I am seeing a naturopath?
A. Yes, absolutely, it’s in your best interests that all of your health care providers communicate with each other.
