Complex cases may require these deeper investigations
Our Naturopathic Doctors screen for viruses such as EBV, CMV, HHV-6, & Bacteria like Chlamydia Pneumoniae.
Viral testing has proven to be extremely valuable in many autoimmune and chronic fatigue cases.
With Lyme Disease testing our Naturopathic Doctors usually screen for common Lyme Co-infections like Ehrlichia, Bartonella and Babesia. Currently we use EliSpot testing for a quick, specific and lower cost analysis of these Lyme associated infections. We're found Western Blot testing to be unreliable for accurate Lyme Disease assessment.
We also look for yeast overgrowth, most typically Candida albicans.
Yeast testing is commonly done through stool testing sent to Illinois. Stool analysis also helps us determine other bacterial species that are often associated with a number of autoimmune diseases.
