5. How long does a naturopathy session last and what happens during these sessions?

The initial session lasts 90 minutes and is an evaluation session. The subsequent sessions are follow-up sessions of one hour. During the evaluation, we complete a questionnaire allowing to clearly establish your needs. It is difficult to estimate the number of sessions required per patients, since these depend entirely on the patient's condition and the evolution of his/her state of health. The naturopath therefore determines each case individually. Usually we estimate three months treatment to re-establish a balance for acute conditions. Chronic conditions generally require about six months of intervention.

6. What is the difference between a naturopath and a nutritionist?
The naturopath uses a global approach to increase the patient's health and addresses the root cause of health issues. The aim is not to treat the symptoms of a certain illness, but to detect the cause of it and then help the patient by using natural remedies.

7. Are naturopathy sessions reimbursed by the RAMQ?
No, they are not. Nonetheless, most private insurance companies reimburse a part or all of the consultation fee.
