OM Clinic and Bookings

What should I expect in a consultation

Expect to be asked a lot of questions. Naturopathic and functional medicine take time, this is because we need to understand your history, listen to all of your concerns, and seek out the root causes of illness and inflammation.

Do I need to prepare anything?

You will be sent a questionnaire to complete prior to your first consultation. This helps to give our Naturopath a little background before meeting you.

What if I need to change the date and time?

Our appointments are prepaid. If need to cancel or make a change you will need to notify us within 24 hours to receive a refund.

What is a Naturopath?

Is a Naturopath a doctor?

Naturopaths usually attend an accredited four-year, graduate-level school. There they study basic sciences similar to those studied in conventional medical school. They also study nutrition, psychology, and complementary therapies such as herbal medicine and homeopathy. Some states and territories require naturopathic doctors to become licensed. That means they have to pass an exam to practice and take continuing education classes.

What is the difference between naturopathic medicine and traditional medicine?

Naturopathic medicine focuses on finding the root causes of illness. Recent research has shown us that many chronic diseases are influenced by multiple factors, including a complex interplay of genetics, epi-genetics, lifestyle choices, (food choices, consistent movement), stress, and psycho-social influences.

What kind of treatment can I expect?

Naturopaths use various treatment methods including nutritional medicine, herbal medicines, teas and tisanes, homeopathy, acupuncture and massage therapy.

What is the history of Naturopathy?

Naturopathy was pioneered in the early 19th Century by practitioners such as the Austrian Vincent Priessnitz who founded the principles of hydrotherapy. Towards the end of the century a German priest (Father Sebastian Kneipp) treated an American named Benedict Lust with a combination of his herbal treatments and water cures. Lust returned to the United States and founded the American School of Naturopathy which became the basis for all naturopathic training and practice, as we know it today.

What are the principles of Naturopathy?

The principles of naturopathy include first do no harm, treating the whole person, the healing power of nature, and prevention.
