Your First Naturopath Visit – What To Expect

Dr. Andresen will work hard to get to the root of your healthcare concerns. At NDcare, your first Naturopathic consult includes both your first & second visits.

At your first of those two visits, you will receive a thorough healthcare assessment and physical exam. Lab test results may be requested from another doctor or requested by Dr. Andresen. You can also expect to receive preliminary treatment recommendations to get you started on your journey to feeling better.

Your second visit is called your Report of Findings. This session is where your lab results and other findings will be reviewed and discussed with you in addition to tailoring a specific comprehensive treatment to your individual needs aimed at getting you better once and for all. Dr. Andresen’s recommendations are always based on the best available research and her 12 years of clinical experience.

Dr. Andresen understands that health issues can be very stressful on so many areas of your life. We approach you and your health from two principles:

  1. help you feel better as quickly as possible;
  2. recognize that lasting and sustainable health is a process that takes time.

She will be with you every step of the way, ensuring that you completely understand the treatment process so that you can start feeling better.

Naturopathic lab testing is an effective way to diagnose many medical conditions. At NDcare, Dr. Andresen may recommend standard and/or specialized lab tests as part of her assessment process.

Standard Lab Tests

Naturopathic Doctors order many of the same standard diagnostic tests as your family physician, such as blood work, stool, urine, and saliva testing. Depending on your health concerns, Dr. Andresen may recommend checking your iron status, blood cholesterol and triglycerides, thyroid function, complete blood count, liver enzyme levels, kidney function, blood glucose levels, inflammation levels and more. In addition to blood tests, there are a wide variety of standard breath, stool or urine tests that may be recommend including an H Pylori Breath Test as well as Stool Ova & Parasite testing and Urinary Tract cultures.

As a new patient, if needed, you might be asked to bring copies of most recent lab results to your initial visit.

For her standard lab requisitions, Dr. Andresen uses a lab called Life Labs.

Naturopathic Clinic Toronto

Dr. Tara Andresen provides acupuncture treatments at both of her Toronto naturopathic clinics. She is highly trained in acupuncture and is dedicated to providing the most effective, pain-free treatment possible. Only ultra-thin acupuncture needles are used to maximize comfort and give patients a positive acupuncture experience.

Your initial acupuncture appointment with Dr. Andresen will last 45 minutes and includes a health assessment, followed by your first acupuncture treatment. Follow up treatmemts last 30 minutes.

When treating patients at NDare, Dr. Andresen uses two different acupuncture techniques which include:

1. Trigger Point Dry Needling
2. Traditional Acupuncture Protocols

(1) Trigger Point Dry Needling

Trigger Point Dry Needling is a western medical approach to acupuncture and is often used to address acute and chronic pain concerns. At NDcare, Dr. Andresen effectively uses this treatment technique regularly to treat muscular and myofascial pain. The treatment works by deactivating trigger points found in overused muscles. Trigger points are literally tangled muscle fibres that form knots and cause acute or chronic pain as well as decreased range of motion.

CHRONIC PAIN

Some of the acute and chronic pain concerns that Dr. Andresen effectively treats with technique include:

  • Headaches
  • Upper & Lower Back Pain/ Tension
  • Neck & Shoulder Pain/ Tension
  • TMJ
  • Plantar Fasciitis/ Foot Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Patella Femoral Syndrome
  • Tendinitis

(2) Traditional Acupuncture Protocols

Acupuncture has been a trusted natural treatment method for thousands of years, and is a strong complement to a naturopathic treatment plan. Dr. Andresen typically might recommend traditional acupuncture for the following health concerns: Digestion; Stress & Insomnia; Reproductive Health & Fertility Support.

DIGESTION

Acupuncture works to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, which relaxes gastrointestinal muscles and improves digestion. This can be helpful in those who experience regular stomach pain, bloating, gas and bowel movement irregularity. It has been shown to:

  • Relieve digestive cramping and bloating
  • Improve gut motility so that food moves more efficiently along the digestive tract.
  • Reduce stress and promote relaxation by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system to relax gastrointestinal muscles and improve digestion.

STRESS MANAGEMENT

By calming the nervous system, acupuncture helps to decrease anxiety and mitigate the effects of stress. Acupuncture has been shown to modulate the body’s glutamate receptors to balance glutamate release which is linked to anxiety and depression. Glutamate is an excitatory amino acid.

REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH & FERTILITY

Acupuncture can be used to help regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle and support cycle restoration when it is absent. It can also improve PMS and painful menstrual cycles. It does this by helping to regulate the flow of blood to the uterus and ovaries, thickening the uterine lining, and normalizing ovarian function. Acupuncture also boosts the circulation of endorphins, a neurotransmitter that can relieve stress and alleviate pain. In addition, research suggests that acupuncture affects the hypothalamus, a part of your brain that affects menstrual cycle hormones.

Acupuncture fees are covered by most employer extended healthcare plans. Check with your employer or insurance company for details on your eligibility for coverage.
