Every Naturopath works differently, some will send out a questionnaire to you prior to your first appointment. All Naturopaths will take a thorough health history, and may carry out a physical examination where necessary. Your Naturopath may suggest that you need some blood tests and refer you back to your GP, or they may offer you access to private functional medicine testing. Sometimes they will perform other health investigations such as allergy testing. After they have got as much information as they need they will suggest a course of action.
