We have licensed practitioners who can order and interpret labs that may be covered by your insurance. We also offer specialized testing through functional labs to assist in detecting root-cause issues and to help us monitor your progress through healing. If you prefer testing, or are motivated by lab testing, we are happy to assist you in this being a part of your care plan.
but we do not require labs
At Wild Herb you will be working with experienced clinicians and naturopaths who understand the meaning of your symptoms, can assess you through in-person and virtual techniques, and can get you started on a therapeutic plan that does not need extensive labs. Most commonly, we offer you a blood panel to "rule out" differential diagnoses and we suggest 1 functional lab test option that would be our most recommended in your case.
