Consultations

A consultation with a Naturopath or Ayurvedic practitioner at Satmya will often be a lot longer than one you may have experienced with your family doctor or GP, with the first visit often taking from 1 to 2 hours. This is because a thorough assessment of your health status needs to be made, examining all aspects. Subsequent sessions are likely to be for a shorter period, depending on the condition experienced.  The following steps will generally form the basis for any consultation:

  • Health profile – the practitioner will make a thorough assessment your case history, in an attempt to identify the root cause of your health problem/s
  • Dietary advice – dietary advice is based on the patient’s health and lifestyle, and the practitioner will draw on herbal medicine, as well as vitamin and mineral supplements to maintain or restore optimal health
  • Dosha identification & analysis
  • Iridology – analysis of the iris of the eye can tell a naturopath a range of health facts, specifically identifying inherited health issues and any toxicity present in the body
  • Pulse, tongue and nail analysis may also be part of your consultation process

Treatment

A range of treatment options are available, including the following modalities:

  • Herbal medicine
  • Homeopathy
  • Iridology
  • Massage
  • Nutrition

Like your consultation with a GP, all the personal information you provide to your practitioner is held in the strictest confidence.
