Blood tests are a good indication of what biological processes may be occurring within the body. If you have existing blood test results that have been performed in the last 12 months, it is good to bring them on the day of consultation. These results are taken into consideration with other naturopathic assessments performed through the consultation. Pathology testing can be requested if necessary.
Natural health practitioners look at slightly different ranges of nutrients and organ health when it comes to blood test results. Some physicians are only concerned when figures are outside the recommended range. However, I look at what end of the range these figures are at – high or low. Also determining if there is underlying concern for other body systems and treat accordingly.
Live blood analysis is another effective way to assess cellular health. This is another assessment tool I look forward to having access to in my clinic in the near future.
