Dr. Natasha Campbell- McBride said: “Typically a mainstream doctor has very little time to listen to the patient. Yet, allowing patient to talk and tell their full story is an important part the treatment in fact. The treatment begins with the listening to the person. Listening will also allow to collect and record every detail about patient’s full health history from birth correctly. Every person is different and unique, and unless we record their unique story in great detail, it may be difficult to solve their unique puzzle. Then we explain the treatment protocol. Homework task will be set at this consultation. So, it’s necessary to allocate plenty of time for the first consultation (the follow-up consultation can be much shorter). The first consultation is the most important consultation”.
