An initial consultation lasts from one and a half to two hours. You will be asked to complete a comprehensive questionnaire about your health. The doctor reviews this questionnaire with you, laying the groundwork for understanding how your health history and lifestyle are affecting your health. A physical examination is performed.
If you have an acute condition (an infectious illness, for example), the doctor will prescribe a treatment. In other cases, the doctor will recommend gradual dietary changes or suggest dietary supplements.
