Thorough lab testing to determine the root cause of disease is an important part of any treatment plan. Understanding what is happening at a physiological and biochemical level is especially important when treating inflammatory and hormone related issues.Often suboptimal levels are overlooked which is why not only do naturopathic doctors look for normal levels but for suboptimal levels for relevant tests.
Proper testing removes the guess work from treatment helping to narrow down our natural options.
Naturopathic medicine believes in preventative medicine which is why screening tests are also an important part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
