First Steps

Your First Appointment

One of our medical doctors or nurse practitioners will conduct a 90 minute intake that starts at the patient’s expressed health concerns and goals. The chronology of symptomatology as perceived by the patient often narrates the story of how disease established itself in a patient. Antecedent factors, precipitating events, and perpetuating factors are all important to understanding the dis-ease process. Much time is spent on understanding the lifestyle of a patient… dietary choices, movement, work life, relationships, rest, patterns of thinking, and spiritual connection. All of these inform the experience of health and are opportunities for conscious enrichment. Using bio-energetic testing, we confirm the need for further functional testing, including neuro-hormonal testing, toxicity testing, infectious diseases testing, food sensitivity testing. A wellness plan is then formulated incorporating all available information from the history, physical, bio-energetic testing, and laboratory testing. This is presented to the patient during an additional 45 minute visit. Recommendations for optimization might include dietary recommendations, supplementation, homeopathy, structural alignment, acupuncture, particular movements, meditation exercises, reading material.
