What is a Naturopathic Consultation?
As a naturopath, my focus is on getting to the root cause of your health issues. I examine everything that is happening in your life and in your body so that I can help you to optimize your health and wellbeing.
I use my experience and knowledge in natural medicine and nutrition to understand you as an individual. I focus on all of the factors that may be contributing to your health concerns - such as genetics, medical conditions, nutritional deficiencies, stress - and then create a customized health plan to address those issues and support your overall wellness.
My approach is integrative and evidence-based. Your health plan may involve nutritional supplements, dietary recommendations, exercise, and lifestyle changes. We can then schedule follow-up appointments to track your progress and monitor your improvements.
A medical doctor, on the other hand, has only limited time to spend with their patient. This often means that only the patient’s symptoms are treated, which doesn’t always result in long-term benefits - or address the root causes.
Naturopathic Consultation Service Options
1. Email consultations
An email consultation is perfect if you just need advice on a specific health issue.
Examples of situations I can help with via email include:
- Advice on an acute issue such as a cold, a digestive problem, stress, anxiety, skin condition, insomnia, and so on.
- Explaining medical test results and offering suggestions for improving your health.
- Help with boosting nutritional intake, dietary recommendations for allergies/sensitivities, or improving your exercise routine.
- Guidance for supporting your immune system, mood, sleep, or general vitality.
- Guidance for choosing the right supplements.
What to expect from an email consultation
When you click to book the email service, you will be asked to fill out a medical history form so I can understand more about your particular health background and challenges as well as the specific question you’d like for Naturopath Katie Stone to answer for you. After you’ve submitted the form, you will be guided to pay $75 for the service through our online checkout. Katie will then receive and review all of the information provided in your intake form as well as your written query. She will respond personally within 3-4 days with an email outlining her recommendations regarding your specific issue. This may include suggestions for certain tests, supplements, dietary changes, exercise, holistic treatments, or other information.
Please note that an email consultation is not a full consultation or health assessment. For comprehensive care and a personalized health plan, please book a full one-hour Zoom consultation

What to expect from an Online consultation

If you have any recent medical test results, it would be great if you could submit those as well. This provides a framework for the questions Katie will ask during your consultation as well as the health plan she will create for you. After you’ve submitted the form (and any test results you wish to share), you will be guided to book a specific date and time to consult with Katie based on her availability and your schedule’s preference. Then you will go through our online checkout to pay $175 for the service.
