Food sensitivity testing

Our NDs can order a food sensitivity tests through our partner LifeLabs to help determine the cause of symptoms like gas, bloating, heartburn, cramps and irregular bowel movements. This can help determine 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 (NDs) 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 NDs treat include digestive difficulties, fatigue and stress management.

How do naturopathic doctors diagnose illnesses?

While NDs 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 ND 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 NDs. 

After a ND candidate has successfully graduated from an accredited program, they must pass the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX).

What can naturopathic doctors treat?

Naturopathic doctors commonly treat allergies, chronic pain, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, respiratory conditions, fertility problems, menopause, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and much more.
