Dear New Patient:
I would like to welcome you to our clinic and to a different form of health care. At Nature Medicine we use a number of natural treatment therapies in a unique way. We believe that your body has its own inherent healing mechanisms that function very effectively when properly supported. Our major focus is to isolate factors that inhibit these healing mechanisms. Factors needing to be isolated include: stress, diet, hormones, emotions, inadequate internal organ functioning, structural damage, the weather, viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms, chemicals, allergens (food and environmental) vitamin and mineral deficiencies, geopathic stress, enzyme deficiency, lifestyle, etc.
In order to isolate these factors, we utilize naturopathic medication such as Homeopathic, Chinese, Western Botanical and *IV Therapies; we suggest various therapies including dietary cleansing to fasting, *biooxidative therapy, *ozone therapy, *IV vitamin and minerals, *heavy metals detox (Chelation therapy), homeopathic and glandular supplements, acupressure, E.A.T.(Elimination Allergy Technique), M.R.T. (Mental Reprogramming Technique), M.E.T.(Microorganism Elimination Technique), lifestyle management, and others.
Please help us serve you better by preparing the following things, if you are able to do them, for your visit to our clinic:
1. Fill out the online intake form and submit it to us electronically.
2. Obtain copies of any lab work, x-rays or other medical information that could assist us in helping you.
3. Bring in a list of medications, minerals, vitamins, herbs and supplements you are currently taking with written amounts.
4. Monitor yourself over this waiting period by making notes about your symptoms such as intensity, duration and frequency of symptoms, etc.
Nature Medicines patient base is ever expanding; this is with many thanks to our kind patients who spread the word. Should you find it necessary to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please call us with a 48 hours advanced notice. If not within 48 hours or with no notice you will be billed up to $30. By notifying us of your change in schedule, you allow someone else to receive the vital treatment they need. Please review the map to make certain that you will not have a problem locating our clinic. Allow an extra 30 minutes for your first visit, to ensure our ability to cover your health needs properly, as well as, keep to our other patients’ appointments in a timely manner. This process depends upon your ability to arrive on time. Also, if you are coming from the United States allow extra time to enter Canada.
We will assist you to regain your health as quickly as possible, and educate you about how to stay well. Should you require additional information, please contact us. All the best to you!
Dr. Michael A. Prytula ND, PSc.D and the staff at Nature Medicine.
