What to Expect from Your Visit with a Naturopathic Doctor in San Diego
When you first visit with a naturopathic doctor at KOI Wellbeing in San Diego, you will be welcomed with a comprehensive approach to your health and wellness. Some people seek out naturopathic doctors because they are unimpressed with conventional medicine’s handling of their chronic condition. Other people want to optimize their health and well-being and receive alternative care from a trained naturopathic doctor. No matter what your reason, here is what you can expect during your first visit with our naturopathic doctor.
One-Hour Initial Appointment.
You may be used to the “drive-thru” method that many typical physicians incorporate into their practices. At KOI Wellbeing, you will be treated to a one-hour consultation that sets the tone for our partnership together. Naturopathic medicine considers your unique physiology to develop a treatment plan and therapies to optimize your health and determine the root cause of your symptoms.
Lab Testing and Assessments.
You will undergo specialty and functional laboratory testing to pinpoint any imbalances. These tests include a functional blood analysis and a comprehensive digestive analysis. Lab testing will also look at your micronutrients and neurotransmitters, and determine your genetic profile, assess your hormones and reveal any food allergies. The health and lifestyle assessments will ask questions about your day-to-day self-care and will also establish any areas for improvement that you can work on at home.
Developing a Natural Treatment Plan.
We treat hormone fluctuations, nutritional imbalances, digestive issues, autoimmune disorders, endocrine disorders, weight management, anxiety, insomnia, chronic fatigue — and much more. Based on the results of your lab testing and assessments, we will develop a personal plan to address diet, lifestyle, nutrition and bio-identical hormone therapy. This plan may include bio-identical hormones, physician-grade nutraceutical supplements, diet and lifestyle changes, nutrient injections, and/or IV therapy — all in an effort to ease the patient into optimal health and wellness that will last a lifetime.
Unlike mainstream medicine, a naturopathic doctor will help you achieve your individualized goals and will continually motivate you to do so. You will develop a close relationship with your naturopathic doctor as you become empowered to take control of your health and reach your wellness goals.
