Our goal is to listen, educate and inspire you to reach your goals for optimal wellness through understanding your individual case by focusing on your entire health past and present including mind, body, emotions and spirit. Visit the category that applies to you on my home page to see what three aspects I focus on to understand and treat you!
~ Get to Know your Naturopath ~
This is a FREE 15 minute consult where your Naturopathic Doctor asks ONLY about your primary complaint and integrates your case into an educational presentation of our medical treatment philosophy and how we can help you. It is also a time to ask questions to make sure the naturopath you are interviewing is going to be a good fit for you!
~ First Time Patient Visit ~
Your first time Naturopathic Medical Visit will consist of a very thorough intake of your chief complaint, past medical history, family medical history, social / psychological health (mental, emotional, spiritual being), nutrition and lifestyle regimen, review of all your organ systems plus taking vitals (blood pressure, heart rate, weight, height, respiratory rate and temperature) and a physical assessment of the area of concern such as looking at your nose/ears/throat, listening to your heart/lungs, performing an abdominal exam or an orthopedic (sports) exam. The initial visit can last up to one hour. This enables Dr Michelle to have a comprehensive understanding of WHY you are presenting with your current symptoms and what organ system is potentially out of balance leading us to a clearer understanding of who YOU are and WHAT the ROOT cause is of your ailments whether acute or chronic. For out of towners, skype and phone visits have proven to be equally successful.
Your Sports Specific new patient visit will be similar to a Naturopathic Medical visit with an emphasis on your sport, your physical body, mental/emotional game as well as offering tools to prevent injury, improve recovery time or support the physical, mental and emotional demands of your sport.
A Comprehensive Nutritional Analysis, Detox and Weight Loss Program new patient intake will be similar to a Naturopathic Medical visit with a focus on your endocrine system (your horomones), your nervous system, your gut health and lastly, but most importantly your nutritional foundation, previous diet or detox plans and your goals.
New patient visits for Emotional Well-being, Intuitive Success Coaching or/ 30-Somethings will incorportate aspects of a Naturopathic Medical visit. Naturopathic philosophy and treatment modalities will also be used to support as well as facilitate faster results and a deeper shift. The initial session is up to 45 minutes in length. Each style of coaching involves Naturopathic philosophy- mind and body wellness with a foundation in nutrition and supportive therapies such as botanical medicine, homeopathy, flower essence and nutraceuticals (supplements for support). Intuitive Success Coaching is offered for those who feel they are NOT in need of a doctor, but would like a tune up and start on a wellness plan to prevent future “dis-ease” or health complications. Emotional Well-being support is offered for those of you who are looking for mental/emotional support and a natural way to deal with stress. The initial visit ranges from 30-45 minutes and can help give you the tools and or shift you need to create the reality you desire in home life, business life, friends, family and intimate relationships and dealing with past or current traumas. Longer visits, Reiki and Beach-Movement therapy available upon request. 30-Somethings is mental/emotional support specific to those in their 30’s. It is a combination of Natural Medicine, Intuitive Success Coaching and Emotional Well-being support.
~ Return Patient Visit ~
Your first return visit is 1 week after your new patient visit with another follow up at week 4. Patients are recommended to return for follow up appointments 1x/month to continue care and moving their progression of health to a level of optimal wellness. Your follow-up visits will last up to 30 minutes in length and can be done in office or via phone/skype. The course of the visit will depend on the information discussed and response to the previous months treatment plan. Follow up visits are used to order labs, interpret labs, repeat physical exams, discuss your progression of health and continue with patient education, treatment and support.
~ Acute Patient Visit ~
One acute visit is allowed prior to a 1st time new patient intake. This is an examination and consultation specific to your acute ailment or primary concern.
~ Home Visits ~
These must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance. Home visits are available for return patients only, unless the patient is physically disabled and can not make it to the initial clinic visit. An additional $35 dollar fee is added to all home visits for transportation costs; depending on distance traveled price could be more. If Dr. Michelle is in your town, she would be happy to make a home visit as well. She previously has treated patients in their home when traveling through Texas, Oregon, Mexico and more.
~ Skype and Phone visits available ~
Skype and Phone visits for new patients and return patients are available upon request. Supplements being shipped to the patients home address will have an additional $8.50 shipping fee.
