Thrive Naturopathic’s Functional Medicine and Homeopathic Approach Doesn’t Leave Treatments to Chance

One of Thrive Naturopathic’s secrets to achieving incredible patient results is comprehensive testing. The standard bloodwork commonly used in conventional medicine provides only a narrow window into your health. These tests do identify certain conditions (and this is necessary) but they are inadequate to shed light on the underlying causes of most chronic health issues. 

Furthermore, medications are sometimes prescribed solely on the basis of your symptoms (not lab work). If that medication doesn’t work, another one will be recommended. And another.

Thrive Naturopathic’s functional medicine and homeopathic approach doesn’t leave treatments to chance. We promise to provide therapies that are personalized to your unique situation – and that starts with comprehensive testing.

You want answers to your health questions. Those symptoms that have followed you all these years? Let’s get to the bottom of them. When we test and find out what is going on with your body, you’ll experience a newfound sense of hope and optimism. 

That’s the power of Thrive Naturopathic.

Testing Uncovers the Root Cause of Disease

Functional medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on treating the root cause of a patient’s symptoms rather than simply managing the symptoms themselves. This approach is particularly useful for patients with chronic health issues that have been difficult to diagnose and treat. Naturopathic functional medicine takes this approach one step further by using natural therapies to help the body heal itself. At Thrive Naturopathic, we rely on comprehensive testing to identify the root causes of disease and create personalized treatment plans that work.

Many health issues are caused by multiple factors, which can make diagnosis and treatment challenging. For example, you may have a gut imbalance that affects your energy levels, which is why your immune system isn’t working as it should. To get to the root cause of your symptoms, we need to take a comprehensive approach. At Thrive Naturopathic, we start by conducting a thorough evaluation of your health history and current symptoms. We then use advanced laboratory testing to assess your body’s functioning on a cellular level.

Testing Guides the Way for Homeopathy

One of the key tools we use at Thrive Naturopathic is homeopathy. Homeopathy is a natural therapy that uses small doses of substances to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. The principle of “like cures like” is central to homeopathy. In other words, a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used to treat those same symptoms in a sick person. However, in order to apply this principle, we need to test for what’s causing specific symptoms to occur. This is where comprehensive testing comes in.

Everyone’s Body is Unique. It’s Why We Test

At Thrive Naturopathic, we understand that everyone’s body is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to health and wellness. Take an irritated gut, for example. Someone might have an undiagnosed allergy causing issues, while another person’s condition might be caused by stress.

Common Tests Used at Thrive Naturopathic

We use a range of tests to identify the root causes of your symptoms. Here are some of the tests we commonly use:

Comprehensive Blood Analysis:

This test provides information on how your body is functioning on a cellular level, including nutrient deficiencies, inflammation, and hormone imbalances.

Food Sensitivity Testing:

This test can help identify specific foods that may be triggering an immune response and contributing to symptoms like bloating, fatigue, and brain fog.

Digestive Stool Analysis:

This test assesses the balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut, as well as other factors that can impact digestive health, such as inflammation and parasites.

Adrenal Stress Testing:

This test evaluates the functioning of your adrenal glands, which are responsible for managing stress and regulating hormones.

Heavy Metal Testing:

This test can identify the presence of heavy metals in the body, which can contribute to a range of health issues.

Testing is just the first step in the Thrive Naturopathic process. Once we have identified the root causes of your symptoms, we work with you to create a personalized wellness plan that addresses those underlying issues. This may include dietary changes, targeted supplementation, stress reduction techniques, and other natural therapies. We also continue to monitor your progress through follow-up testing and adjustments to your treatment plan as needed.
