This is hard to answer, because everyone is different, and every program is different, and everyone has different goals and objectives. Some people see immediate results, within days or even hours, from correcting a simple deficiency, be it a nutrient, mineral, probiotic, or other critical bio-molecule that has been missing or in insufficient amounts. Others it takes months or even years. It is hard to predict. Anyone that tells you otherwise is lying to you. Dr Joseph asks for a 3 or 6 month commitment so that there is plenty of time to flesh out the work that needs to be done. Some patients consult with Dr Joseph every week for years, while others are ready to be on their own after a few months. Everyone is different and each patient is treated like an individual.
