Our Naturopathic Doctors spend at least an 1.5 hours on your first consult to best understand the disease process you are experiencing and the numerous variables that are contributing to your condition. While they use standard laboratory (blood) testing and physical exam for diagnosis, they also use “alternative” laboratory testing. These tests may include but are not limited to: adrenal function saliva testing, heavy metal testing at a specialized laboratory, stool studies, specific hormone panels, food allergy testing panels, Candida growth tests, immunologic profiles, and more. Once they have highly specific information for you that is reliable, they create a specialized treatment plan based on your symptoms, health care concerns, and information from the tests. Treatment ranges from traditional medications and nutrient supplementation to clinical nutrition and energetic medicine, such as homeopathy.
