BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  Laboratory Tests - US Laws - choosing a physician
Posted by: 3176 (Guest), Thursday, April 17, 2008, 10:39pm
I'm searching for a local practitioner who can help me achieve my health goals.

I visited a Osteopathic physician in Barbados - http://www.themaasclinic.com - who did several tests on me including a c13 (right in his office), live blood analysis, and urine. He then prescribed a short-term diet plan based on that. A trip to B'dos is quite expensive though.

Are Naturopahts in the US allowed to order blood chemistry tests in the US? I'm really not sure who I should go to.

If you are up for a trip why not visit Peter D'Adamo in his office in Connecticut.

I suppose they could order tests. There is a lab called Great Smokies [or Smoky] that does tests for chiros, so I assume it will do them for others.

It will vary from state to state based on that states laws and licensing. There are two states where Naturopathic practice is illegal, and non-MD's are limited in many (most) others...

On the other hand, in some states you can request a lab test without physician refferal. I go to a place that just collects samples and sends them to the lab. It's much less expensive than going through a physician's office, my MD lets me do this for the tests he requests.
