How long does this take to work?

This really depends on what this is and how long you have had it, however for many conditions 3-6 treatments should provide a decent indicator of your bodies inherent ability to resolve and heal itself. Treatments can be integrative to support your current healthcare needs, providing lasting improvements and are side effect free.
