During the consultation, i will ask you a number of extensive questions and feel you pulses at your wrist  as i do Medical Pulse Diagnosis .  MPD is very good at determining your health Status . After a discussion on findings, i will address your primary health concern or the symptoms  that is most bothersome and make some suggestions. Multiple conditions can be treated at the same time however sometimes the main condition needs to be treated first before others can be addressed. ( otherwise one has to take too many supplements).

Strategies and a health plan will be given to you detailing suggestions on what steps to take to resolve your complaint. A follow-up consultation time will be arranged. I may suggest either some Massage or Reflexology sessions to speed up your healing process but they are added to the main therapy of Herbal Medicine.

Please bring results of any medical tests or diagnosis that you may have including what medications or supplements you are taking. The first session is to get you going on a program and the second session is on follow up and adjustment to your health program. Preferably wear loose comfortable clothing as sleeves need to be rolled up for blood pressure testing.

I am not a medical doctor therefore i do not diagnose medical conditions. If I suspect through my training and interview that you possibly have a medical condition then I will refer you back to your regular doctor or nominate another health professional who can assist your needs. I may comment from time to time on any health issues pertaining to prescribed pharmaceutical medicines that you are taking that in my opinion is not in your interest for obtaining radiant health or may be causing you side effects. If there is an issue I will always refer you back to your prescribing doctor.

I will prescribe a personal supplement program to your specific health problem or needs. I generally prescribe encapsulated herbal products for ease of taking.  All supplements prescribed are Practitioner strength and approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration. I will Generally prescribe supplements available on Heath food stores as they are mostly of practitioner strength

Herbs or supplements must be taken in sufficient dosage to create a healing effect. Most manufacturers put on the bottle a maintenance dose only to comply with government regulations. HOWEVER THIS IS NOT A THERAPEUTIC DOSE! I will advise you on correct dose for your condition but sometimes that may be double or triple the dose on the bottle ! This is required as to ingest enough therapeutic compounds and nutrients to change your metabolism or repair cell integrity.Without these doses then there will be little or no healing effect.

Most supplements can be taken by those who are using prescription drugs without interactions. However supplements should be taken at least 2 hours from the time your prescription drugs were taken. There are some exceptions of course, those on Warfarin, or other blood thinners may not be able to take some herbal supplements. Further advice on this will be given during the consultation.

Supplements may be re-ordered by e-mail on peter@adelaidenaturopath.net.au and posted to you for a $12 mailbag charge. I mainly prescribe supplements that can be purchased at a health food store for your convenience but some are practitioner lines only that that must be dispensed by myself according to practitioner guidelines and not available in Health food stores.

There is no Natural Cure of cancer but there are evidence-based nutritional and Herbal protocols that can stimulate the immune system and may assist to slow down the progression and growth of cancer. For example, there has been considerable research into Curcumin ( a compound of Tumeric ) that has many trials to show that it may be very useful in slowing down the progression of cancer, helps stimulate white blood cells and even destroy cancer stem cells. Whilst Curcumin does not cure cancer its use in the correct way may be very useful and supportive in an overall health program. If you are confused as to what may be useful to you then in a one-hour consultation I can show you a program that will assist. There are no one size suits all approaches in treating any chronic disease and every program must be individualized.

I do phone and telemedicine consultations . To set up an appointment time please contact me on 0438584123  . For this consultation where i cannot feel your pulse i will ask for you to supply pictures of your tongue and ear which will show  where imbalances may be through analasis of visual signs which convey this information . Of course  we take a good written profile of your issues during the consultation and the information is collated  to the signs found on the ears and tongue to arrive at a proper diagnosis of what is happening within the  body .  Then a herbal or supplementation prescription can be written . You will be asked to supply information on your blood pressure as well as that is used diagnostically as well . If you ring me i will send an e-mail with clear instructions on  how this is done
