Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for August 2, 2005

I call a number of Naturopaths in the area and I get mostly answering machines. I finally get a hold of a live person and I ask for the soonest appointment. Her weekends were booked until late August but she did have an opening this Friday morning. I’d have to take the day off work but it will be worth it.

She wants me to download a diet diary form from her website. I tell her I already have a database and was tracking my food intake and symptoms. The following is posted on her web site:

What to Expect On Your First Visit: 

The goal of the naturopathic doctor is to understand the patient and all the factors which impact on his/her health. This is why the first consultation takes 1 ½ hours – in order to have enough time to go through a health history, perform a physical exam and various testings such as blood typing, blood sugar, blood cholesterol, urinalysis and zinc tally test.

All this information assists the Naturopathic Doctor in making a thourough assessment and diagnosis. A personal treatment plan is then proposed to help facilitate your healing process.

WOW! I’m impressed. 1 ½ hours on my first visit. She’ll need it with the story I have.

I create a report outlining the timeline of events with my doctor.
