A Preventative Approach Based on Science.
Each consultation is based on a comprehensive assessment. This assessment is completed prior to the consultation. The results provide important information about your health and nutritional habits. Also an initial urine test allows the naturopath to evaluate overall health, nutrition and digestive health. Usually, nutrition has an important impact on overall well-being and the signs are obvious to a trained professional. A second urine test evaluates the adrenal glands, which serves as an excellent indicator of your level of stress.
