During this time, we will schedule our next follow up visit, which should be about 7-8 weeks following this meeting.
Here we will discuss changes that have taken place since the implementation of recommendations.
We will discuss the herbal formula (if added to your plan) and improvements or challenges.
At this time, if you are having any difficulty, we may alter the plan....or if you are feeling better,
I will add additional suggestions to move forward with.
We will discuss and address any new symptoms you may be experiencing. will answer any additional questions, etc.
During this visit, we will decide on and schedule additional follow up visits that are tailored to your needs.
Each additional visit following will be similar to this one.
** PLEASE NOTE:
Due to the amount of change that take place in health, symptoms, lifestyle and seasonal climate~
The 6 Follow Up Visits included in the 'Total Health' pkg must be scheduled within 1 year of the Plan Meeting.
The 3 Follow Up Visits included in the 'New Life' pkg must be scheduled within 6 months of the Plan Meeting.
The 1 Follow Up Visit included in the 'Finding Balance' pkg must be scheduled within 3 months of the Plan Meeting. After these time-frames, the included visits expire and a new Follow Up Consultation Visit is required.
As time goes on, you will have the tools to take an active part in your own health and will need less and less support
from me....OR you may choose to continue to see me for a time frame that suits you best. I am always here for you!
Let me stress, any natural form of healing takes time, as well as authentic effort on your part, but should also be done with
respect to where you are now and should be implemented in small stages.
That is why in your treatment program, I offer you small changes in one or two crucial areas, rather than trying to do everything at once, which can shock the system. Over time, as you comfortably acclimate to the small new habits, we will continue to add in others as pieces and enhancements to build on. This will allow you to support yourself in alignment with creating health.
Your unique treatment program is designed to assist you in reducing the doshic imbalance so that your body has the best chance possible to heal itself. At each follow up visit, we evaluate how well you have been implementing your recommendations and you are given assistance with difficult areas.
Visits will continue at your comfort level. I am here to assist you with a plan that gives your body strength and
nourishment, so it can release the deeper held heat and old emotional states. We may take things one day at a time!
Throughout the course of treatment, I will provide the following:
Ayurvedic Diet and Nutrition Plan
Digestion Regulation and Vitamin Assimilation
Physical Exercise that is right for you, including Yoga Asana
Herbal Remedies (if needed)

Gentle detoxification and cleansing techniques
