What will it cost?
The first appointment ranges in cost, depending which practitioner you are seeing, it is best to contact the stores, or if you know which Naturopath you wish to see, we can put you in contact with them as requested. Usually the first appointment can take a little longer, as we need to collect quite a bit of information! Naturopaths want to know lots of things about lots of different body systems. After this, all other appointments take between half an hour and 45 minutes.
Sometimes we need to use other tools to establish certain things in the comprehensive clinic environment. Below is a list of some of the extra testing we might use if we feel we need too.
Hair Intolerance Testing
Hair intolerance testing uses an EAV machine method, which is an easy, painless and way for you to find out what foods or environmental intolerances may be causing irritation and possibly contributing to your health and well being issues. The testing using the EAV machine measures the difference in electromagnetic resonance when the hair sample is exposed to various test substances. This test quantifies changes in electromagnetic energy and is not measuring a list of antibodies or immunoglobulin’s.
Other testing that might be required or suggested may include the following (prices will be discussed as required):
- MTHFR gene mutation testing
- Male or female hormone profile
- Adrenal Stress Profile
- D.U.T.C.H. Hormone Metabolite Assessment
- Comprehensive Stool Analysis
- Iodine loading
- Comprehensive Thyroid Profile
- Kryptopyrroles testing
- Carb Choice genetic testing
- Organic Acid Testing
There are many more functional pathology tests available and depending on your condition and requirements they may also be suggested during your consultation with us.
Often a comprehensive blood analysis form your GP may also be requested, or if you have had any recent tests, we may ask you to bring them along with you.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
