Consultation with Radka
What to Expect
(**note: scroll to the bottom of the page for a list of fees associated with the services provided at Living Energy).
During my training as a Naturopath, it was made clear that the basis for healing is working with the whole – encompassing not just the physical body, but the mind, emotions and energy (spirit) of each person. And even though I no longer use the title of “Naturopath” the principles which I work by remain the same because without a wholistic approach, true healing cannot occur.
During a consultation, you can be assured that I am doing my best to uncover the root cause of your dis-ease* and avoid symptomatic prescribing. It is easy to prescribe products or make suggestions according to symptoms. This, in my opinion, is only a band-aid solution. If the root cause of disease is not dealt with, dis-ease will continue. Our medical professionals have been working in this manner (treating symptoms) for many years.
(* note: the word dis-ease refers to lack of ease – expressed as poor health or illness of any kind – in the body).
For example: your head hurts, so you take a pill to make the pain go away. Unfortunately, wholistic health can fall into the same trap. In all honesty, it is far easier to prescribe symptomatically. Why? Because it takes a lot of time to delve deep and understand a person’s mind, body and emotional state.
When you come to see me for the first time, be prepared to spend at least 1.5 to 2 hours talking with me. I don’t do tests of any kind, or any blood-work. Instead, I do things the old-fashioned way and talk to you in detail about you and your body.
I usually begin by asking you about your past medical history. From there, we move on to your current state of health and then I will ask you detailed questions about the rest of your body systems. There is a big emphasis on digestion – not just questions about your bowel movements, but also many questions about the food you like (and don’t like) to eat. I will also ask you about your Self – how you handle stress, what you do to relax, etc.
Once I have gathered all the information I need, I will put together a program for you. Each progam is unique to each person’s individual needs. The only similarity with each program is that I use herbs. With everyone. I love the way herbs work in the body to create gentle cleansing, strength and tone to organs and tissues. The herbs I select for you will be chosen according to your personal health needs.
The other major focus of a program is nutrition. I’ve already mentioned this – I prefer to work with your eating habits and food selection, as opposed to prescribing lots of supplements.
Please note that I do not use any special equipment or machines to assess you, nor do I tests of any kind. If I feel that you need further assessment in that way, I’ll refer you to another professional that is equipped to do that.
By following the rule of simple recommedation, you become more empowered – you learn how your body responds to certain stimuli (food, thoughts, herbs, supplements, etc.) and you learn how to create balance in your life on a consistent basis. And, you also come to recognize that the role I serve is that of guide and mentor. I make the suggestions; you make the decisions. You choose how well you want to be.
YOU become the healer.
YOU are the healer.
YOU are the one in control of your body, mind and life. That is how it was always intended to be.
