My ND Services
Naturopathic doctors take the time to get to know you as an individual. A first visit is usually about 90 minutes long and covers your health history in detail including:
- Current medical issues
- Past medical history, including any childhood illnesses
- A head-to-toe symptoms inventory
- Current diet
- Current lifestyle factors, like stress, sleep, work, and exercise
- A review of any laboratory work that you have had in the past year
Based on this information, you and your naturopathic doctor will begin to formulate a plan to help bring your body closer to a state of optimal wellness. This may include changes to your lifestyle – like deep breathing exercises to help manage stress, it may include changes to your diet – like a three-week discontinuation of a specific food group, or it may include supplementation. Naturopathic doctors are trained to recommend vitamins, minerals, botanical medicines, and homeopathic medicines. The plan that you are given is individualized for you based on your unique health history.
20 Minute Introductory Consultation
Allows time for Dr. Winters to give and overview of naturopathic medicine, explain her philosophy and the components of a typical naturopathic office visit, and examples of treatment plans. It also allows potential patients to detail what they are looking for in an integrative medicine provider. This allows both the ND and potential patient to assess whether they might be a good therapeutic match.
First Office Visit
This 90-minute consultation is designed not just to review your current symptoms, but to get to know you as an individual. We will review the history of your current illness, your past medical history, complete a head to toe review of symptoms, review current medications or supplements, and then discuss your lifestyle: stress, work, nutrition, sleep, exercise, and favorite pastimes. Based on this information, we will develop naturopathic treatment recommendations that encompass lifestyle changes, nutritional interventions, and supplementation (if necessary).
Return Office Visit
This 45-minute consultation is usually scheduled 3 – 4 weeks after the initial visit. We review how you have been feeling since your initial visit, noting objective changes to your overall health. Sometimes patients leave with encouragement to stay the course since they are making such great strides towards a healthier lifestyle. Other times, we need to make subtle changes to the original plan in order to better address the root of
