Thanks to social media, we are bombarded with constant ‘noise’ about how to be healthy. It’s becoming more and more difficult to decipher what is true and who to trust to guide you on your personal health journey. We've created this Replete Wellness online journal as your doctor-approved, trusted source for online health content.

ABOUT US

The Online Naturopath Will See You Now

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic we’ve seen how important telemedicine visits have been to our health & well being. Virtual medicine has proven to be a convenient + powerful tool to connect us to our practitioners and to help keep us well in these difficult times. While we slowly transition back to ‘real life’ we urge you to consider booking virtual consults moving forward as it keeps you from visiting a busy clinic while we’re still uncertain about longterm social distancing practices. Not only do telemedicine visits save you exposure + time (our patients LOVE being able to ‘check-in’ from their home or office without having to drive to the clinic), they also allow you to connect with practitioners that would normally be very difficult to access. We’ve received hundreds of emails from people all over the world looking for care and now thanks to changes in the way we deliver telemedicine we can finally connect with patients globally looking to achieve Replete Health (that’s clear skin, balanced hormones and vibrant health, ladies!).

WHAT CAN NATUROPATHIC DOCTORS PRESCRIBE AND TREAT VIA TELEMEDICINE?

Online Naturopathic doctors are able to treat and prescribe natural medicines for a variety of conditions. The goal of online natural medicine is to make optimal health as easy and convenient as possible. Online Naturopathic doctors can write 90-day prescriptions for any natural medications (thyroid hormone, bio-identical hormones) and pharmaceutical grade supplements (*note: these prescriptions are available to patients living in Ontario only). They can also provide requisitions for blood work, as well as functional medicine test kits (we have access to an abundance of advanced biomedical tests that can help get you better quickly by revealing the root-cause of your symptoms). The goal of online natural medicine care is the same as it is in-person: to get you well as fast as possible and set you up with the tools and education you need to maintain vibrant replete health for life.

The Replete patient virtual medicine on-boarding process starts with an hour-long comprehensive intake. This appointment involves a thorough exploration of your health, current symptoms and health goals using the replete signature method.

At your initial online visit Dr. Sarah will:

  • Review your history, current symptoms & medical conditions, drug history, current prescriptions and supplements.
  • Explain / review your current lab work & functional medicine lab results: We see a ton of patients who have already paid for functional medicine tests with unqualified practitioners or doctors who have not had the same extensive training in functional hormone health / natural skin healing. Many of our patients book in because they do not feel satisfied with the interpretation or application of their functional test results from other practitioners. We also advise seeing an ND if you’re gotten blood work from your physician and been told that it’s ‘normal’, but you know that something isn’t right and want to seek out a second opinion.
  • Rule out the possibility of any contraindications, which refer to any situation where the medication or supplements prescribed may actually cause harm to the patient, either based on personal health or interactions with other medication (this is why it’s SO important to work with a certified naturopathic doctor – there are so many under qualified imposters in the natural health space providing ineffective and or dangerous advice).
  • The goal of your online consult is to give you a true understanding of the root cause of your symptoms, and the exact steps you need to take in order to heal. Your care may only require 1 online consult, or may be spread out over a series of 1 visit monthly for 3 months depending on the complexity of your case.

Your customized functional telemedicine health protocol may include:

  • Customized prescriptions based on your health goals, history and functional medicine testing results
  • Herbal medicine prescriptions to help you balance your hormones, reset your fertility and clear your skin
  • Vitamins, minerals, and customized nutraceutical prescriptions
  • Bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT) to regulate hormones (typically a 3 – 6 month treatment is required – only available to patients living in Ontario)
  • Functional food therapy to heal your hormones and skin from the inside out
  • Advanced personalized cycle syncing protocols
  • Lifestyle medicine tailored to your health goals and current symptoms

After your appointment, Dr. Sarah will send your prescription directly to the pharmacy, or provide you with a link to her online dispensary for you to access your professional-grade supplements quickly and easily.

HOW THE ONLINE APPOINTMENT PROCESS WORKS

STEP 1 – MAKE AN APPOINTMENT | Replete health starts with making an appointment through our online booking site, and filling out required paper work along with our signature replete method intake form which will help you get the most out of your first visit.

STEP 2 – ONE-ON-ONE VIDEO CHAT OR CALL | Dr. Sarah will contact you at your appointment time for a one-on-one video chat or phone call (whichever you prefer). Video appointments are preferable not only help to make you more comfortable but also give your online doctor a more accurate understanding of your symptoms. Your initial consult will take between 60 – 75 minutes depending on the complexity of your case.

TREATMENT + PRESCRIPTION | At the end of your initial online consultation Dr. Sarah will explain the root cause of your condition and provide you with a personalized treatment plan, which may include any necessary prescription medications (residents of Ontario only), pharmaceutical grade supplements, further functional testing recommendations and individualized diet and lifestyle prescriptions. If you do require a medication prescription (available to residents on Ontario only), Dr. Sarah will send it electronically to a pharmacy of your choosing where you can pick it up at your convenience, or provide you a prescription from her online dispensary for you to access your supplements quickly and easily.
