I dedicate myself to the service of humanity, as a practitioner of the art and science of naturopathic medicine.
I will honor my teachers and all who have preserved and developed this knowledge and dedicate myself to supporting the growth and evolution of Naturopathic medicine.
I will endeavor to continually improve my abilities as healer through study, reflection and genuine concern for humanity.
I will impart knowledge of the advanced healing arts to dedicated colleagues and students. Through precept, lecture and example, I will assist and encourage others to strengthen their health, reduce risks of disease, and preserve the health of our planet for ourselves, our families, and future generations.
According to my best ability and judgment, I will use methods of treatment which follow the principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
I will conduct my life and the practice of Naturopathic healthcare with vigilance, integrity, and freedom from prejudice. With my whole heart, before this gathering of witnesses, as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, I pledge to remain true to this oath.
The initial visit is designed for carefully going over all of your medical history and answering any questions that you might have. It will also include a tour of the clinic and a detailed outline for the structure of subsequent treatment visits. The visit may also include a complaint-oriented physical examination and requisition of laboratory testing depending on main health concerns. Ultimately, this initial visit allows the InspireHealth doctor to get to know you as an individual and begin to identify the factors that are contributing to your overall health concerns.
The second visit is usually booked within 1-2 weeks of the initial visit and is intended to thoroughly discuss your Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP), introduce the iHealth Binder, review any requested lab work and perform any aspects of the physical examination not covered in the initial visit. This visit is where the overall treatment strategy will begin to take shape and incorporate modalities such as clinical nutrition, supplements, botanical herbs, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, injection therapy, hydrotherapy, or homeopathy.
Follow-up visits will be scheduled based on the presenting health concerns and the ability of each individual patient to implement, adapt and respond to the treatment interventions.
