TERMS OF ENGAGEMENT CONTRACT

 

Informed Consent to Naturopathic Treatment with Poppy Alvares N.D.

 

Naturopathy (including Herbal Medicine and Bodywork) are practiced by non-medical professionals and is complimentary to other regulated forms of healthcare in England.  Consultations with a Naturopath include taking a detailed case history, performing a physical exam if relevant, creating a personalised protocol based on the client’s unique health and constitutional findings, bespoke herbal prescriptions, and following up on results and progression of your health. Naturopaths employ a range of therapeutic techniques including dietary advice, lifestyle advice, herbal prescriptions, supplements, relevant functional testing, massage, and other bodywork techniques.

 

While the best course of action is continually sought for the patient there always exists the possibility of side effects, adverse reactions or inefficacy of treatment. Poppy Alvares holds your safety and well-being as her top priority in the management of your case and welcomes all questions or concerns you may have.

  1. Poppy Alvares has in no way suggested that my being under her care should prevent me from seeking treatment from any other healthcare practitioner.
