Seeing a naturopathic doctor on Maple is easy
Food sensitivity testing
Our licensed naturopathic doctors can order food sensitivity tests through our partner LifeLabs in Ontario and British Columbia. This can help determine the cause of symptoms like gas, bloating, heartburn, cramps, and irregular bowel movements, and if hidden food sensitivities are contributing to your symptoms.
The LifeLabs RMA FST™ provides a list of food sensitivities in an easy-to-interpret report, by analyzing hundreds of different types of food antigens.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are naturopathic doctors?
Naturopathic doctors are trained in areas like clinical nutrition, lifestyle counseling, botanical medicine, and homeopathy. They use natural therapies to diagnose, prevent, and treat acute and chronic illnesses holistically.
Some of the most common conditions naturopathic doctors treat include digestive difficulties, fatigue, and stress management.
How do naturopathic doctors diagnose illnesses?
While naturopathic doctors can provide relief from symptoms using natural approaches, their end goal is to uncover and heal the root causes of illness.
They do this by asking questions about symptoms, your environment, and health history, and also by working hand-in-hand with medical doctors and other healthcare providers.
Are naturopathic doctors licensed?
Naturopathic doctors are regulated by the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND) in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. The other provinces and territories are actively seeking regulations to ensure the highest standards are met.
In order to become a licensed naturopathic doctor in the above provinces, each practitioner completes an undergraduate degree at university, as well as an accredited naturopathic medicine program, which includes training in basic, medical, and clinical science, diagnostics, naturopathic principles, and therapeutics. It also includes extensive clinical experience under the supervision of qualified naturopathic doctors.
After a naturopathic candidate has successfully graduated from an accredited program, they must pass the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX).
