What to bring
1) Please fill out intake forms
(preferably on the patient portal) by the night before your visit so I have time to review them. *
You should receive an email with a link to the on-line health history questionnaire.
If you do not get this 24 hours or more before your visit please call scheduling and have them re-send it.
The form is long, but I do actually read it. The more information I have, the better I can see the patterns in your case
2) Bring copies of any relevant labs or imaging to your visit
(you may also upload them to the patient portal if you have PDF copies).
Labs I frequently request:
CBC, ferritin, Metabolic panel, Vitamin D, TSH, free T3, free T4
3) 23andMe / MTHFr Testing can be done prior to your visit.
This test can take up to 8 weeks, it is a consumer based test - you can order it yourself.
Folks with fatigue, mood, or toxicity issues may want to begin this process before the first visit.

What to Expect
The first visit is 90-120 minutes.
We will review your complete health history, often going back to childhood, all of your current symptoms, your supplements, your medications and any labwork/imaging you bring. This allows me to see patterns in the evolution of your health and symptoms. I am usually able to give an overview and a preliminary treatment plan at the end of the first visit. If your visit is at the Si Shou location, acupuncture treatment can be included in this first visit. Acupuncture and bodywork are not offered at the Peoples Rx location.
Clients often need 3-6 visits to fully engage in their healing journey.

Which location to pick?
Peoples Rx is centrally located. I can only offer naturopathic consulting services there (no acupuncture or bodywork services). There is no "onsite" staff, so the experience is a little more "informal" and "DIY" and since it is in a busy store, it can be a bit chaotic at times, but always high energy. Since visits are in the Peoples Rx store, you have immediate access to huge number of supplements at the time of your visit.
Si Shou Acupuncture Wellness: I can offer combination visits (naturopathic counseling and acupuncture / bodywork) at this location. The clinic space is clean and serene. There is no "onsite" staff at this location either so the experience here is also "informal" and "DIY". There is no onsite dispensary, but I do have an online dispensary (with home delivery), and many of the supplements and custom herbal formulas I recommend can be purchased locally.
