Diagnostic Lab Testing
All of our Naturopathic Doctors are licensed to order comprehensive lab testing in the province of Ontario. Access to testing is a crucial component to addressing the root cause of your condition to help develop a customized treatment plan. We can order testing that is drawn and completed within Collingwood.
What Types of Diagnostic Testing Do We Offer?
Our Naturopaths have access to a wide variety of specialized lab testing but the most commonly used at our clinic are:
- Stool Testing and GI Mapping (used for dysbiosis, SIBO, IBS, parasites, and other digestive disturbances)
- SIBO breath testing

Lab Testing And Personalized Healthcare
Often traditional testing doesn’t paint the full picture needed to understand the underlying contributing factors of a condition. By using your clinical presentation with private and conventional lab testing - we can better understand the underlying physiology and create a custom treatment plan to help you feel your best.
