Unique features of the practice

Your time and concerns are valued

During your initial 1 hour consultation, your needs and concerns will be listened to and addressed. We take the
time to educate you and explain our findings, allowing you to be an active participant in achieving optimal health.


We treat the cause of disease, not just the symptoms

When a fire alarm sounds, you put out the fire, not just silence the alarm. The same concept applies to your
health. We do not believe pharmaceutical or natural treatments should be used to suppress symptoms. We
will work closely with you to find the underlying cause of your concerns and tailor your treatment plan accordingly.


Specialty diagnostic Testing

Many of our patients come to us with a stack of lab work showing normal results, yet they continue to feel ill.
We focus on prevention, meaning that though your lab values may fall within the established range, you may
be close to the high or the low range for that value. This is often the optimal time to begin treatment and be
proactive about your health rather than waiting until you are tagged with a chronic disease. We also utilize
specialty testing (environmental, hormonal, genetic, parasitic, food allergies, and others) to achieve a proper
diagnosis and treatment plan.


Individualized Treatments Plans

Just because there is one name for a given condition does not mean there is only one treatment. We have many
different tools that we can select from to treat you, a person with individualized needs.


We focus on prevention and education

We believe that the time to start treating a disease is before it develops. Many chronic diseases (diabetes, heart
disease, hypertension, some cancers) are preventable through lifestyle choices. We educate our patients to
make informed decisions. Our focus is the quality of your health in this moment and well into the future.


Treatments from the USA and around the World

Dr Wolf has been trained in the many cutting edge techniques that both South Africa and the USA have to offer.
Dr Wolf continues to educate herself so that she can offer her patients the best treatments available.


The best of both worlds

The practice combines traditional Western medicine (a thorough history, physical exam, blood tests and
imaging studies) as well as alternative therapeutics (clinical nutrition, acupuncture, herbal medicine, counsel-
ling, homeopathy and kinesiology) to provide the best individualized patient centred medical care.


Specialization

Even though all medical conditions are treated there is a special emphasis on the hormonal or endocrine
diseases (under and over active thyroid, menopausal symptoms, infertility, stress related to adrenal depletion,
insulin resistance and weight loss)  and emotional states (grief, depression, anxiety etc).

Results orientated

This practice strives for excellence in healthcare by applying all the natural medicine tools available in the
gentlest manner. We aim to get results!

The Consultation

Am I the right kind of patient for homoeopathy and acupuncture?

We ask you to read this first as it will clearly lay out what you can expect as a new patient and the steps you
will need to take to gain maximum benefit from your treatment.

Health has a lot to do with personal responsibility. We can certainly offer you very deep and powerful support in
overcoming chronic health conditions or pain, but it will ultimately be up to you to be accountable for your own
health by being compliant with the lifestyle recommendations we offer, whether they be dietary, exercises, or
stress reduction techniques. 

A lot of people assume that homoeopathy and acupuncture work like magic and all they have to do is show up
for treatment and their health problems will disappear. This is not the way that natural medicine works. 
Especially with chronic health issues, we have to work together as a team and implement a variety of lifestyle
strategies for the homoeopathy and acupuncture to work on the deepest level possible. If you have been told
homoeopathy and acupuncture should work on the first treatment-or else it's not going to work at all', this is
false information and we encourage you to consider otherwise. 

Many times, the effects of acupuncture will take hold after an initial series of 6-8 treatments depending on your
situation. Sure, there are times where you'll feel amazing after the first treatment, but for chronic issues you
can expect it to take some time. With regards to homoeopathy, it is rare for a patient with a chronic disease to
be cured or relieve symptoms after one session. Consistent and repetitive use of the medication in our opinion
has shown amazing success when applied long term. When dealing with an acute illness e.g. cold, flu, sinus
etc homoeopathy is quick acting and you can expect a change in your symptoms in 1 - 2 days. 

Here are some of the steps you will need to take to gain maximum benefit from your treatment.

1.
Consistency in Treatment - On your first visit, we will discuss frequency and number of treatments to reach
    maximum progress. We ask that you make a commitment to the treatment plan by making your visits a top
    priority. Homoeopathy, acupuncture and functional medicine work best with consistent and cumulative care. 

2.
Eat an organic whole foods diet - this is one of the most important steps you can take to heal all kinds of
    chronic issues. Many of our patients are asked to undergo allergy elimination protocols as well in order to
    achieve optimal benefit. 

3.
Exercise 3-4 times per week - walking, stretching, yoga, biking, etc., preferably you can find something you
    enjoy

4.
A few minutes a day of quiet time and introspection - meditation is ideal for this purpose.

If this describes you, great! If you feel that you are willing to make changes but are not sure how, we'd love to
see you at our practice to help make these changes. Be sure to start by downloading our How to Thrive ebook.
Then call us at 011-675-3699 and we'll see you as soon as we can!

What can I expect from my first consultation and follow ups?

The initial consultation is  60 - 90 minutes. A very
thorough case history and physical examination are per-
formed. You will be asked in depth questions about your illness, past medical history, family history, mental
and emotional well being, lifestyle, stress levels, sleep, diet, female and male symptoms etc. Depending on the
case, live blood analysis, or acupuncture can be also be performed. Please plan for the time needed and bring
all past medical information relevant to your condition with you including blood results, x- rays and other test
results. Also please have the names and dosage of all medications, supplements etc that you are taking. You
may be required to undergo further specialised blood testing, x rays etc.

All follow ups are 30 - 45 minutes depending on whether a live blood analysis is done. All acupuncture follow
ups are 30 - 45 minutes long and must be repeated 2 or 3 times a week for success. Treatments vary from
6 - 20 treatments depending on the illness. With both homoeopathic and acupuncture consultations your case
will be re evaluated and medicine prescribed.

Please note:
  All medical aids pay for homoeopathic services as long as there are funds in the account. Please check
   with your medical aid as to what fees they will pay for.
  The fees are paid immediately after the consultation and debit and credit card facilities are available.
