Online Consultations – What to expect?

Amidst the craziness in the world, it can be easy to become focused on the negative. We need to take a collective deep breath together and focus on what we CAN do.

What is that? Look after your own and your family’s immunity, health and overall wellbeing. This is why I have introduced online consultations to open the journey to wellness to everyone!

During an online consultation you’ll be given the time to be heard and understood.  In your consult I will allow up to 1 hour to go through a detailed case history, to get a thorough understanding of your condition and symptoms, and investigate the underlying factors and root causes of your presenting symptoms. This will ensure I treat the cause, and not just band aid the symptom.

You will be given the opportunity to provide any pathology you have had done in the past 12 months and provide me with a copy of this prior to your appointment. If I require any further pathology from you, I will arrange a pathology request for you at the end of your consultation.

To allow physical assessment during your online consultation, please ensure you have access to the following basic equipment:

  • Tape measure
  • Thermometer
  • Bathroom scales
  • Blood pressure machine that can be purchased from places such as Chemist Warehouse

If you don’t have a monitor, and you have blood pressure issues – as part of your prescription you will need to get one.

What else do I look for during consults?

  • Discoloration of skin, face, lips etc
  • Body language
  • Tone of voice

Through an online consultation, I will be able to inspect your:

  • Eyes
  • Tongue
  • Nails

All of these are used to assess the overall state of your health in different body systems. Different indications from things such as the nails can be linked through to gut and/or auto immune conditions. Remember, our skin is a reflection of what is going on inside!

I will also be able to provide step by step instructions on how you can take your own:

  • Pulse
  • Waist/hip measurements

Will I still get the same treatment as if I was there in person?

Yes. I use the same principals of functional and naturopathic medicine with all my patients and offer personalised treatment plans wherever you are.
