During your 60+ minute Part I-New Patient Appointment you will provide a urine sample for the Metabolic Urine Test (a metabolic urine test to screen your pH, adrenal and digestive function). Then one of our highly skilled Naturopathic Doctors will take time to listen to your health history, nutrition and lifestyle as well as review your medications and supplements. Additionally they will perform a health-specific physical exam, where indicated. This collectively helps to determine if additional testing is indicated. You will then be given Option 1- To Proceed to Care or Option 2 Additional Laboratory Testing to create a 3-dimensional view of your health.

This visit is covered by most health insurance plans.

Naturopathic doctors use conventional and integrative medical specialized laboratory testing and physical examination as an integral part of your complete naturopathic medical assessment.

During your initial new patient appointment- Part I your Naturopathic Doctor will assess your health and may recommend further specialized testing to assess your situation
fully. The details of the testing options will then be reviewed with you to confirm if you’d like to proceed with testing or have a health plan to be formulated from the information that is present.

In Part II of your Naturopathic Initial visit, 2 weeks later, your Naturopath will review all lab findings, assess the root cause(s) of your health concerns, provide a plan and then offer coaching and support for optimal success.

This visit is covered by most health insurance plans.

As each person’s plan is individual to them, your follow-up visits and therapies thereafter are customized to you. Your appointments may be recommended to be once every 4 weeks until improvement is achieved, then your visits may be reduced to once every 6-8 weeks, 8-12 weeks, and then twice a year (every 6 months) when you are in wellness. They can be approximately 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour (this time is recommended if you haven’t had a follow up for over 3 years). It is important to maintain this prevention plan and not wait for symptoms before returning.

Physical Treatment Plans such as acupuncture or Bowen therapy are generally once a week for 3, 6 or 12 weeks with a follow-up assessment done to assess progress every 3 weeks.

At Revivelife Clinic we have created an on-line file that is accessible for both you and your health care providers in a private Revivelife patient portal that contains both your administrative and health information that is up-to-date and is accessible any time, any place with personalized log in details. It hosts your administrative information i.e. invoices, medical letters and your health information i.e. intake forms, questionnaires, diagnostics, care plans including supplement or therapy recommendations and handouts that are a part of your therapy.  To make the most of your appointment, before your appointment we recommend the following:
