What Can I Expect From My Consultation?

An initial fertility consultation is 2 hours long with ideally both partners present.  A non-fertility consultation is 60 minutes.  During this time you will be asked questions about your presenting condition, general health, medical history, nutrition and lifestyle, and any conventional medical treatments that you may be taking or doing.  We have a biomedical approach with healthcare, looking at all treatments and tests, while using evidence-based natural medicines to treat.  If needed, pathology testing such as blood, saliva, stool, hair or urine analysis may be recommended.

Once all the information is gathered, a treatment plan is formulated including advice on nutrition, lifestyle, hydration, exercise, stress management and natural remedies (herbal medicine and supplements) where suitable.  We will then explain why the remedies have been recommended and what we expect to happen as a result.  Where possible, the supplements and herbal medicines will be dispensed from our clinic.  You may also be referred to another practitioner as part of an integrated health care approach.*  Afterwards we will book in a follow-up consultation for 30-45 minutes to review progress and make sure we are on the right track.

 

*Zest Natural Health is based inside City Osteopaths on Featherston St in Wellington.  Our clinic is an integrated medical clinic with Osteopaths, Naturopaths, Acupuncturists, Medical Herbalists, Massage therapists and Body Talk practitioners all under the one roof.  Where appropriate, and with your approval, we will pull our learning and specialists skills together to ensure you get the best quality and comprehensive treatment available.
