Laboratory Testing

Naturopathic doctors frequently order routine blood work and other tests, similar to what your medical doctor might order.  They also have access to a number of functional and diagnostic tests that are more unique to naturopathic practitioners.  Some of these include:

  • Food sensitivity testing
  • Comprehensive stool analysis with parasitology
  • H. pylori testing
  • Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) testing
  • Allergy testing (RAST)
  • Nutritional Assessments
  • Heavy (toxic) metal urine testing
  • Urine testing to assess hormonal imbalances
  • Lyme disease testing

All testing requisitions are completed and paid for at the Lavallee Health Centre and are collected at Life Labs, Dynacare, or at home.

Our Nds have accounts with several labs, including:
