What to expect from your first visit

At Tansley Naturopathic, we endeavor to address your health concerns at their source, starting at your very first visit. We’ll take time to discuss any concerns you might have and ensure that you leave feeling educated, empowered and motivated to bring your health and lifestyle into balance.

Create a vision for your health

“No one wakes up in the morning and says, 'I want to gain 150 pounds and I will start right now!”
― Tricia Cunningham.

Your initial consultation will take approximately 60 minutes. Dr. Siddiqui will take a thorough history to understand your background, current state of health and clearly establish what you would like to achieve in terms of health and preventative medicine. We may request information pertaining to:

  • Family history
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Stress
  • Environmental exposures in your home and work environment
Your appointment may also include a physical examination and laboratory tests to provide us with a clear picture of your complete structure of health. Most importantly, we hope you leave our clinic feeling motivated with the assurance that you have a new ally in restoring your health. Your follow up appointments at Tansley Naturopathic will follow a systematic approach that is much like a building project to help you restore and maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

Establish a clear, definitive plan

Naturopathic medicine treats the whole person, which means that we consider a person’s entire ecology and lifestyle before diagnosing an illness or determining a course of treatment. Using the latest in diagnostic panel testing, Dr. Siddiqui will help you to implement a treatment protocol that will pinpoint the source of distressing symptoms and help you return to feeling well.

Build a strong foundation

Taking action to reduce or eliminate lifestyle, dietary and environmental factors that can contribute to the onset of illness in the first place is a logical place to begin building a structure of health. This may involve:

  • Restoring appropriate hormone levels
  • Identifying food sensitivities that cause irritation and inflammation
  • Detoxification of heavy metals and other toxins

Implement supporting structure

At Tansley, we consider all of our patients to be participants in their health care. We’ll help guide you in making specific lifestyle changes, such as improving sleep habits, eating well, and following an exercise regime.

Add building blocks

Using a combination of homeopathy, botanical medicine, traditional asian medicine and other natural supplements that can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine, we’ll strengthen your body’s natural healing ability and shore up resources to prevent nutritional deficiencies and combat age-related illness.

Preventative medicine and maintenance

Once you have achieved your initial health goals and your symptoms have improved, we can help you to continue to build on your understanding of how to gently bring your mind and body back into equilibrium before disease states occur.
Balance is a dynamic, lifelong process that requires constant effort to maintain wellness in the face of the day-to-day stresses that can impact a person’s health. At Tansley Naturopathic, our mission is to help each of our patients create a harmonious structure for their life that allows them to look and feel their best and get the most out of life.
