Laboratory Testing

What are your optimal numbers?

Laboratory work can be an important piece of the puzzle when searching for the root cause of your health issues. I work with various laboratories, including ICL, Dynacare, Lifelabs, and Doctors Data to provide my patients access to these professional lab tests. Laboratory tests include, but are not limited to, IgG Food Sensitivity testing, Comprehensive Stool Analysis, SIBO Breath tests, as well as common blood work for the numerous body systems. I also always take my patient's clinical picture into consideration when analyzing blood work. In some instances, just because the numbers are within the range, it doesn't mean it's their normal.

Here Are A Few Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are Naturopathic Doctors regulated in Ontario?
  • What can I expect from my first visit?
  • Do you treat patients with severe health problems?

Yes, Naturopathic Medicine is regulated under the RHPA (Regulated Health Profession's Act, 1991) in Ontario. It has been regulated by the RHPA since 2015, when the Naturopathy Act, 2007, was proclaimed. Prior to that, it was regulated under the Drugless Practitioners Act - Naturopathy, 1925.

During the first visit, your ND wants to get to know you as a person, what your health goals are and how you have managed your health in the past. Expect to be there for an hour or more to give your ND adequate time to complete the picture. As well as performing a physical exam based on your health complaints, your ND will also ask you about your mental, emotional and spiritual health, your diet and lifestyle, and treatments you may be receiving from other health care providers. By the end of the visit, your ND will present an individualized treatment plan and may suggest further testing.

NDs are primary healthcare practitioners who can treat the same conditions as a family doctor, including acute concerns and chronic health conditions. In the event that an ND is unable to treat your condition, he or she will consult or refer appropriately.
