Consultation & Fees Knowledge And Experience In my capacity as Naturopath I am treating chronic and acute illness, pain and discomfort, with exception of infectious disease. I take time to listen to my patients, respect them for whom they are, and give independent advice based on a holistic concept. I will do my best to help you identify the underlying root cause of the health problem you are currently experiencing. Oftentimes, I support the healing process with advice on nutrition and herbal remedies (no supplements). If applicable, I will explain you the connection between unresolved emotions and physical symptoms of your body. Moreover, I emphasize the importance of developing a sense of active responsibility in my patients while giving constant guidance and support along the way. What Can I Expect During My First Consultation? A thorough medical anlysis is the basis for any treatment. To get a complete picture about your current status of health, I will ask you detailed questions about your medical history. If you have any test results or reports that you would like to discuss, please bring them along or send them ahead per Email. If you are taking any medication or supplements, please take photos of each box or bring everything in a zip lock with you so we can take a look at it (you can take everything back with you). This is particularly important if you are taking several different medications. Typically, you will be asked questions about your sleep, diet, exercise habits etc., and about what is going on in your personal and professional life. The more open you are, the more you should be able to benefit from the consultation and treatment. During the physical examination (you may want to bring along some comfortable shorts and T-shirt), I will take a look at your entire body, especially the areas of discomfort or pain. I will take whatever time it takes for examining and feeling the entire abdominal area. Many patients report that they “feel something moving” or “happening in their body” during this time. You should feel very comfortable, safe and relaxed. I will explain you my findings and discuss with you what a treatment plan could look like. Depending on how much time we have, I will already give you some tips and ideas on how you can improve your current condition. If you came in for a 60 min. session, most likely the time will be over by now. Most likely I will ask you to come back 5-7 days later for treatment. If you would like to get a full treatment during the first appointment, please let us know in advance so we can allocate enough time for you. The Second Consultation Typically, during the second session I will do a quick follow up with you. Then I will feel your abdominal area to release any energetic blocks. Depending on how sensitive you are, you might feel “something happening” or experience a feeling of warmth and comfort. I would then move on to feeling your head (the cranium), and maybe work on your neck to possibly relax the Vagus nerve, which is the connection between your brain and major organs. If there is an emotional component to your current health situation, I would work on it by using my hands and vibrations to put your body and mind back into balance. This process will help to activate the healing powers within your body. Your body will intuitively know what to do. Expectations A normal consultation lasts about 60 Min. If your condition requires a more comprehensive medical analysis during the first visit because you have already seen a number of specialists with various medical reports to go through, or you have a long list of symptoms or family history of disease etc., the medical analysis at the beginning will take more time, even up to 45 min. (or longer). A thorough medical anlysis is the basis for any treatment. Therefore, we will spend as much time as necessary on it. This is the key difference to a conventional consultation and treatment: I am able to take time for you and give you my professional, independent point of view – without any incentives for surgery, medication or supplements. However, I will never discourage you from discontinuing or changing your current treatment – the contrary is the case. I am not a medical doctor, only a Naturopath! As a Naturopath, I am 100% independent. I do not receive any kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies or anyone else. Patients come to see me to get an independent, holistic view, similar to the concept of having an independent asset manager to advice on your finances instead of someone who has high sales targets and earns high commissions. The national exam of Naturopathy in Germany covers various fields of medicine such as anatomy, neurology, hormons, allergies, auto-immune and infectious disease, pediatry, psychology, and commonly used medications etc. This allows me to view your condition from a Western medicine point of view, to explain you your medical reports, what your blood values mean for your body, what role stress may play etc. If I feel you should see another specialist or practitioner, whether conventional or alternative, I will recommend you so based on my professional opinion. The heart of Naturopathy is found in the field of alternative and complementary medicine, such as traditional home remedies, traditional medicine or common medicinal plants. Its basis is the concept to treat illness at its root through for example lifestyle changes and to get a different view on the meaning of illness. You might be surprised about how much can be done with “simple” measures. My treatment is an opportunity for you to get a different perspective on your health and body, to awaken your own intutition, and to listen to what is correct for you. It might even change how you see yourself and how you perceive the world around you. I will do the best I can to guide you with my medical knowledge, intution and desire to bring you back on your path towards health.
