A person's initial visit is a 90 minute appointment. The visit involves a functional health evaluation of the immune system. Elements of stress to the immune system are identified in this visit in order to begin the foundation of homeopathic treatment. A detailed assessment of the immune system includes the digestion, lymphatic, hepatic, adrenal and nervous system. The evaluation looks for microorganisms that overload these systems such as bacteria, viruses, candida, mold, parasites, heavy metals and vaccinations.
During the follow up visits the focus will be on continuing to build and strengthen the immune system by looking at the overloads that are still contributing to an imbalance. It takes approximately 3-6 months to restore balance to the system. In addition to working on the immune system the 5 most common trigger allergens are addressed: Mold, Dust, Chemicals, Sugars and Additives.
When balance is restored and the immune system is functioning more effectively, a full Sensitivity Screening of over 200 foods will be performed. Following the screening we will begin to slowly and incrementally reintroduce foods. Sometimes, starting on the skin and then graduating to carefully supported, ingestion until the food can be safely integrated and freely eaten. Although it varies based on other contributing factors such as past exposure and overall anxiety around the food sensitivity, this process can take approximately 4-8 months per sensitivity.
