Naturopathic Medical Visits

Medical Visits

Your Initial Exam

The goal for your initial exam is to learn as much as possible about you through an extensive patient history intake including an assessment of your diet, environment, toxic load, stress, and other aspects of your lifestyle. The visit also includes a complete physical exam and laboratory tests – both standard and specialized, and other standard diagnostic procedures to evaluate the status of your physiologic functions. You will always be greeted with a friendly smile, and be given as much time as you need to ask any questions you may have.    Common Diagnostics and Treatments

Symptoms represent a constructive indication as a response to dis-ease present in the human body. Given these circumstances, the role of the Naturopathic Health Practitioner is to understand the symptom, and aid the body’s natural ability to heal from within.

Common Diagnostics & Treatments

Naturopathic medicine treats health conditions by utilizing the body’s inherent ability to heal. This is a very safe, natural therapy which utilizes the services of several different alternative diagnostic and medicine techniques to treat patients.

Diagnostics

BioElectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a means of assessing your “body composition” – the measurement of fat in relation to lean body mass. It is a primary tool used in a natural health and nutrition assessment, and is used to help you in achieving your goal of optimal health.

Testing your pH (Potential of Hydrogen) involves dipping a test strip into a first morning urine, allowing the measure of relative acidity or alkalinity in your body as well as checking protein, carbohydrate, and absorption levels. Balanced pH is critical to nutrient absorption and immune system function, especially in chronic illnesses and auto-immune diseases.

Energy flows through your body, and always looks to restore your body to health. Applied Kinesiology (Muscle Response Testing) helps to determine energetic imbalances by touching acupuncture points to check for weakness in the body’s energy flow, which helps determine what the body needs to restore health and well-being.

Iridology is the science and study of the color and astrictive of the eye’s iris to determine tissue weakness and body predisposition to weakness. It is more of a tool than a diagnostic that is used as a means of assessing body conditions and levels of general health.

Treatments

Clinical nutrition is the practice assessing nutritional needs based on your lifestyle, family and medical history, and lab tests to design a customized diet plan suited to individual goals in promoting optimal health.
A dietary supplement is intended to provide nutrients that may otherwise not be consumed in sufficient quantities in your daily food intake to support optimal health. Supplements as generally understood include vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids, or amino acids.
Botanical Medicine is a natural approach to health which uses natural plant or plant-derived preparations (such as echinacea, cranberry, and aloe) to support and balance body systems compromised by various health conditions and ailments.
Nutraceuticals (nutrient pharmaceuticals) are medical foods that are specially formulated and intended for use under the supervision of a qualified physician for the dietary management of a disease that has distinctive nutritional needs that cannot be met by normal diet.
Detoxification (via herbal kit and diet or specialized foot spa) involves elimination of poisonous toxins and other body process waste and is critical in achieving and maintaining health. Processed foods, environmental pollutants / chemicals, and stress are key factors in creating body toxins that build up faster than the body can rid them. As these toxins break down, the process creates damage (free radicals) leading to disease and systemic dysfunction.
Aromatherapy is the non-invasive therapeutic application of aromatic botanical extracts called essential oils used as both a preventive or active treatment of health conditions and as a means of balancing energy fields to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Service Testimonials
“Dr. Fran has helped me make immense strides towards my holistic health in a relatively short period of time.

My wake up call was the discovery by my doctor that I had developed some health issues. If I did not lose weight, those issues would have a negative affect on the quality of my life and generally shorten my life expectancy.

I consider myself as being pretty well versed in the areas of nutrition, natural foods, and quality food preparation. Yet, after almost 30 years, I was unable to develop a plan for myself.

Dr. Carns has brought together a team of caring individuals who are devoted to the well being of others. I started with Yoga. I experienced an immediate improvement in the quality of my sleep and ability to cope with stress. After a year with improved flexibility, balance, and spirit, I sensed a need to address the element of nutrition. That’s when I decided to make an investment in my health and yield to the guidance of Dr. Carns and her team.

After a few months I lost half of my target goal. With that loss, all the earlier health issues went away. I still have some work to do to reach my target weight, but I know that I am on the right path. I have also learned that a number on the scale isn’t nearly as important as good health.

Thank you, Dr. Carns and your team of Angels!
