Professional Laboratory Testing

We offer many different kinds of tests through several professional laboratories with excellent, long-standing reputations in the industry. Let your ND know if you have an interest in any particular test(s), and these options can be explored in your Naturopathic visit.

Common symptoms that warrant testing include:
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Problems focusing or with clarity of thinking
  • Weight gain
  • Infertility
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Women’s cycles
  • Menopause/Andropause
  • PMS
  • Low libido
  • Decreased endurance
  • Skin condition (eg. eczema, acne, psoriasis)
  • Gas and bloating
  • Constipation/loose stool

Additionally, if your family history includes cardiovascular disease and/or diabetes, thorough lab testing is helpful for prevention and appropriate, timely interventions.

Options include all the standard labs your doctor may (or may not) request, as well as many other tests that most conventional doctors don’t use, such as:
  • Salivary hormones and adrenal function (cortisol)
  • Nutrients (eg. Vitamin D and iodine)
  • Toxins (heavy metals, environmental pollutants)
  • IgG, IgE and ALCAT food sensitivity with candida (yeast overgrowth)
  • Gluten sensitivity and intolerance
  • Thyroid function tests
  • Oxidative stress analysis (how well are you aging?)
  • Comprehensive stool analysis and parasitology
  • Intestinal permeability (‘leaky gut’ or malabsorption)
  • Cardiovascular health profile
  • Diabetic health profile
  • Genetic profiling to uncover your unique susceptibilities for many chronic diseases and conditions

Use the latest in scientific testing to discover your true health potential! Feel free to explore all the possible testing options through the laboratories’ own websites, or request more information or a pamphlet at your visit to Natura Wellness Clinic:
If you have recent laboratory results, please bring a copy to your initial visit. Due to the current regulatory framework, none of these tests are covered by OHIP, but may be covered through your extended health benefits. Please contact your insurance company for more details.
