Your First Visit
Every person is unique, all the way down to a cellular level. At Vital Life Health Alternatives, we believe that individualized treatment is the best way to provide optimal care for your unique needs. For this reason, your first visit entails a lengthy question-and-answer exchange and will last longer than follow-up visits, approximately 30 minutes to one hour. We also ask you to complete your practitioner’s assessment form to provide us with an accurate, comprehensive look at your history and current state of being.
Your responses help form the foundation for your treatment, just as your medical history and physical provides a basis for a plan of care with a traditional medical doctor. Because your practitioner views your health as a whole system, questions asked may seem irrelevant to the specific condition of concern. However, every question is vital, and each diagnostic tool used – such as feeling your pulse and looking at your tongue – will offer important clues for planning treatment tailored specifically to you.
Depending upon the nature of your health concerns and your practitioner’s assessment, there may be no treatment on the initial visit.
