Dear patient,

I would say each patient is different and needs to be treated that way. Therefore, you need some kind of traditional workup including a back scratch test or serum test to discern what you are allergic to and how severe the response is. Also, any medications and medical diagnosis has to be taken into account. Yes, there are a number of natural modalities that might help including Frankincense oil, Eucalyptus oil, and Quercetin that you could try along with following up with a naturopath. 
I hope this helps.

Dear patient,

There are many causes and reasons for depression and also many different types. It is a very serious condition that must be taken seriously. Therefore, patients deserve a complete medical workup that includes possible thyroid issues along with ruling out metabolic, cardiac, immune, neurological, and hematological disorders. Moreover, there are blood tests that can discern if you are low on certain neurotransmitters. Following this, if your depression is mild, then yes, naturopathic medicine could possibly help you along with exercise and therapy. Your diet is also crucial in helping you to abate your depressive symptoms.

Can naturopathy help in preventing diabetes in a person?

Genetics are a part of what you are talking about, but the larger question is, are you as an individual going to take charge of your life and health status? Many patients have been conditioned to give their power away and rely on so-called "authorities" to address their medical and emotional issues. Many of the patients that I see in our clinic research the symptoms and issues they are going through, whether it is catastrophic illness or high blood sugars. They get multiple opinions, seek out integrative clinicians, and go forward with in-depth research looking for answers. Two wonderful books I recommend would be The End of Diabetes by Dr. J. Fuhrman and The Pre-Diabetes Diet Plan by Hilliary Wright. This is the way I put myself into remission from a grave prognosis with cancer all over my liver and lungs. Good luck!

Lab tests

Each patient's needs are different. Some patients might need more testing than others. The majority of these tests are non-invasive. As far as hormones, again, each case is different. READ MORE
