Nutritional and dietary evaluation has always been a cornerstone of naturopathic medicine, and my practice is no exception.  With some patients, this of necessity becomes the focal point of our work together and might involve food allergy testing and/or Nutreval testing, elimination diet variations, and so forth.  Supplements will often be recommended in order to correct certain nutritional deficiencies and/or to address various metabolic imbalances.  My long-term goal, however, is to address conditions such as leaky gut syndrome, gluten sensitivity and gut microbiome imbalances in order to reduce the needed number of daily supplements.
