You may have heard of recent scientific research demonstrating the breakthroughs that medical practitioners are having with integrative medicine. It’s often referred to as gut-health, but it is so much more than that – especially at River Tree Health. Integrative medicine is making the news because the outcomes have been incredible. Medical practitioners are calling it the new paradigm of medicine.
This approach integrates the assessment of the symptoms, the underlying factors, the physical and the psychological; it truly looks for the root-cause and brings a personalised treatment plan that integrates therapeutic symptoms not only designed to rid the symptoms, but to gain long term wellness.
Beyond this, being an integrative medicine client at River Tree Health ensures your case is reviewed by our expert multi-disciplinary team. We are working on your case even when you’re not in the session with us. We will truly consider all angles and possible causes to give you your own incredible outcome.
Each integrative medicine program has a lead practitioner who will be your key contact. As an integrative medicine client, your lead practitioner will consult with the rest of the team, so that you get the benefit of insights from every perspective, be they medical, nutritional, gut-microbiomial or psychological.
This approach integrates each perspective to ensure the whole of you is considered, and to better identify and treat the root cause.
Generally, you’ll work with your lead practitioner to develop and assess your personal treatment plan. In some cases, your lead practitioner may bring others from the team into the session or you’ll see them in a separate session, depending on your needs.
In all cases, for all integrative medicine clients, your case will be confidentially reviewed by the team to ensure we’ve covered all angles and giving you, personally, the very best approach.
We offer an introductory session, where you will meet with one of our practitioners and go through an integrative medicine assessment to find out how we can best help you.
For convenience, our fees are charged by the session and incorporate a significantly reduced rate for the time outside your session when the integrated practitioner team review and input on your personal requirements. Your initial session is for 50 minutes ($290) and we recommend you allow a bit extra time to enjoy our relaxing waiting room experience while we enter you onto the system.
You’ll be asked to undergo a number of blood tests following this initial session, these are important first indicators for integrative medicine assessments and like any testing available through River Tree Health, we only pass on cost-price. For these initial tests, the costs are fully covered by Medicare. You can talk through all testing options with your lead practitioner.
Follow up appointments may be 30 to 50 minutes depending on requirements and your lead practitioner will discuss this with you beforehand.
