When you come to the Physical Health Complex for colon therapy, bowel rehabilitation, digestive evaluation, nutritional guidance, detoxification, etc. I will be here to welcome you and work with you. Together we will make a determination regarding your goals and your treatment plan after I have done a thorough medical, bowel and nutritional history and an evaluation of your supplements and medications. Your vitals and a palpation exam are also a part of an initial intake.
