Naturopathy at Lorne Park Integrated Health

Most naturopathic doctors use a variety of therapies and techniques such as nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture. Naturopaths treat anything from ear infections and asthma to chronic diseases.

A naturopathic assessment is not that different from that of a family doctor. It includes questions about your sleep, exercise, and eating habits and about your general health.

Once all of the information is gathered, a treatment plan is formulated that addresses all areas of the person’s life, providing the body with the optimum chance to heal itself. The treatment plan may include advice on diet, lifestyle, exercise, herbal medicine, homeopathic treatments, or other suitable remedies.

Live Cell Microscopy

Live blood analysis differs from traditional medical blood testing in which preserved blood is sent to a lab for analyzing of chemical composition and cell counts. In live blood microscopy we magnify one drop of blood under the microscope. The cells of the blood are observed on a monitor that is connected to the microscope.

This process is not a diagnostic test. It only helps us to confirm what we see on your traditional blood work and see in more details your nutritional status especially in iron, vitamin B12, protein and hydration.

This an education tool to motivate you to improve your diet, perhaps with addition of some supplements. Usually within few months positive changes can be seen in the blood.
