How do I book in for a naturopath consultation in Richmond?

You might be used to booking in a session by session method with a typical naturopath, but how we work is different. We know that with chronic health issues, getting well again takes time, and you need not only the direction of a practitioner, but someone who can help you make the changes necessary to be well again. This is why we work with people in Richmond in our six month program, where you get as many appointments with your naturopath, as well as your health coach, as you need to be well again. 

Hence when you sign up to our program, we'll book your initial appointment with your naturopath, and from there on, you'll be sent to our Bookings portal to book future appointments with your naturopath or health coach. The process is as simple as clicking a few links, and you'll receive a confirmation email and text message each time, as well as reminders so you never miss an appointment.

Are telehealth appointments available for Richmond residents?

Yes, telehealth appointments are available! Richmond residents can access telehealth appointments with one of our functional medicine trained naturopaths. We offer telehealth to new and existing patients in Richmond and Australia-wide. This means whether you’re in Richmond and surrounding areas in Melbourne, or are in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney or Brisbane you can have access to telehealth sessions with your naturopath, or your health coach, from the comfort of your home. 

Accessing your virtual meeting room is simple. Once you’ve organised somewhere quiet and comfortable to sit, simply click the link that you’ve been sent and you’ll be able to start your session with your healthcare team member. You will be sent your meeting link each time you book a session, so you’ll always have it handy. 

What can I expect during my initial consultation with Melbourne Functional Medicine?

Understanding your full health picture takes time. Your initial appointment will be scheduled for four hours. During this time, your naturopath will ask you lots of questions to get a deeper understanding of your health concerns. In the first half of the session, your naturopath will gather information about your lifestyle, diet, genetics, stress levels, family history and other factors contributing to your health condition. In the second half of the session, your naturopath will start to bring this information together, discussing the patterns they are seeing so far, what your initial plan will be, and answer any questions you have.

Towards the end of your session, you and your naturopath will be joined by your health coach so that you all have a shared understanding of your health plan. This will include discussing the priority next steps such as ordering functional testing or supplements, as well as other aspects of your program that your health coach will support you with.

Why choose Melbourne Functional Medicine as your naturopath in Richmond?

At Melbourne Functional Medicine, our approach is deeply science-based. Our functional medicine trained naturopaths help people in Richmond and base their recommendations and treatments on the latest available research and tools. 

Combining evidence based care with a thorough investigation of your unique health picture, our naturopaths will gain a deep understanding of the root cause and factors contributing to your health concerns. Together, you will consider the complex interaction of many elements such as your health history, physiology, diet and lifestyle and use this data to create a personalised treatment plan to help you reach your health goals.

We understand that it can take time to reach your health goals which is why, in addition to your sessions with your naturopath, you will also have the ongoing and uncapped support of a health coach to keep you motivated and on track to create lasting improvements in your health.
