Frequently Asked Questions


Q: I have never been to a Naturopathic Doctor,

how do I know if it is right for me?

A: We offer a free 15-minute consultation, so you can see if Dr. Walters and his approach are a good fit for you.  Give us a call at 406-556-0307 to schedule a consultation.



Q: What can I expect at my first visit to The Source Wellness Center?

A: Initial visits last 60 to 90 minutes, during which time Dr. Walters will ask you a lot of questions about your health complaints.  Based on your history, he may choose to do a physical exam, perform bodywork, or order lab work or imaging (x-ray, ultrasound, CAT scan, MRI) if needed. If you have already had lab tests or imaging  done bring a copy of them with you or fill out release of records form and we can obtain them for you.  A personalized treatment plan of natural therapies will be given to you at the end of the visit, and a follow-up appointment will be scheduled based on the needs of your case.



Q: Does TSWC take insurance?

A: Yes we do.  We are in network with PacificSource and will submit your claims for you.  For all other insurance plans, we will provide you with the paperwork to submit to your insurance company and they will send you a check for anything that is covered under your policy.  We recommend you contact your insurance company prior to your visit to confirm coverage of our services.



Q: What type of payments do you accept?

A: The Source Wellness Center gladly accepts cash, checks, American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. Payment is due in full at the time of the visit.



Q: Will my Naturopath interact with other health care practitioners?

A: Yes. The various branches of medicine all have special skills to offer.  We will consult with other health care providers you are working with in addition to The Source Wellness Center to ensure the best care possible for you.



Q: What Conditions can Naturopaths treat?

A: Naturopathic doctors are general practitioners trained to treat a wide spectrum of conditions.  Please see our common conditions page for a detailed list.



Q: What is Applied Kinesiology?

A: Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system of diagnosis using manual muscle testing along with other standard forms of diagnosis to evaluate structural, biochemical, and emotional aspects of health.  AK is a wholistic approach to determine what areas are overloaded, weak, or stressed, including the spine, joints, organs, acupuncture meridians, biochemistry, and emotions.  The most supportive therapy to correct the dysfunction will be determined.  Typical therapies include specific spinal/joint mobilization, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, acupuncture meridian stimulation, clinical nutrition, dietary recommendations, botanical medicines, and counseling skills.  AK is extremely useful in treating chronic conditions and acute injuries.



Q: What is The River Of Health?

A: The water at the source of a river, like optimal health and wellness, is clean, pure and pristine.  Moving down the river the water becomes more and more polluted and we see more and more signs and symptoms.  Our goal is to guide each of our patients back to the source of the river where the water and their health is optimal and pristine.



Q: Do you take out of town patients?

A: Yes.  We do offer appointments over the phone and Video Conferencing after an initial visit in the office.  As long as you have a primary care practitioner in your hometown, we are happy to provide this service for you.
