Naturopathic Health Consultations
“I want you to enjoy and benefit from your visits with me.”
Dr Emma Stokes believes in finding the underlying root cause of health issues, and empowering you with the knowledge and tools you need to heal and feel your best.
Dr Stokes uses an integrative, functional medicine approach incorporating science-based labs to understand your body’s unique makeup, and to design a customized diet and supplement protocol.
Dr. Stokes has spent over a decade studying how to interpret complex lab data to solve common complaints like fatigue, weight gain, depression, digestive problems and hormone imbalances.
She offer free 10 minute consultation to determine if we are a good fit for what you are looking for.
Your first visit will consist of a consultation, detailed history, and a discussion about any functional medicine lab tests that would give us more insight into your health concerns. Labs that may be required cover the three main body systems that go out of balance, and include: Hormone testing, Digestive health testing, Advanced metabolic panel.
Based on this information, initial recommendations for your treatment protocol will be made.

On your second visit we will discuss a detailed report of findings, review any labs, and develop a comprehensive, personalized nutrition and lifestyle program for you to begin. Programs often include diet and lifestyle modifications, botanical/herbal medicine, and nutritional supplementation. Supplements are usually an out of pocket expense unless you have a health spending account. Your return visit is also a good time to ask any questions that you may have had after your initial visit. If you need immediate clarification on remedies, dietary recommendations or have a concern over any unfamiliar symptoms that may arise, please contact me immediately; sometimes it is a quick email response, other times it required us to set up a 15 or 30 minute follow up appointment.
As you start to experience a new level of wellness, a follow up appointment every two to four months for general disease prevention and health maintenance, and to review your supplement protocols and get lab retesting done all happen as needed for each individual.
Much of the work we do centers around understanding how genetics and your diet and life history have interacted so we can optimize your health and resolve chronic, long standing health problems. I would love to help you achieve optimal health on your journey.
