How To Use Nutritional Testing To Improve Diet, Inflammation And Longevity

April 23, 2019 3 min read

 

Can a medical doctor also be a naturopath? What does that look like? Dr. Donese Worden joins me to chat about how naturopathy and medicine go hand in hand for overall health and prevention. Listen in as we chat about how stress affects the body and the brain and what you can do to reduce stress in your life.


Stress is not always an external factor. Many times we add stress to our body’s systems by introducing foods and drinks that we cannot adequately process and digest. Everybody is different and needs different fuel and food medicine. The first step to understanding your individual makeup is to keep track of the foods you eat and how you feel after.


However, when tracking isn’t enough, that maybe when you need to see a naturopathic medical doctor. Dr. Worden shares which tests she recommends most frequently to her patients so that she can diagnose the underlying problems causing their symptoms. For instance, broccoli is an amazing vegetable that has wonderful health benefits when prepared and eaten properly… unless you have a food sensitivity to it.


Once you figure out how you’re taxing your body internally, look at the external factors that are affecting your health. Listen in as Dr. Worden shares how she recommends you remove the toxins from your life. The work that she is doing has helped people heal from cancer and autoimmune diseases despite advanced diagnoses. 


You’ll definitely want to listen in and hear all of Dr. Worden’s wonderful advice. Age is nothing but a number and your physical manifestations of stress likely have nothing to do with aging. Stop using excuses and start working toward understanding your biochemical makeup and what you should be doing to live your best life.

Soon, we will find ourselves deep in the middle of winter. There are some great things about winter to look forward to like the holidays, snow, winter sports, and cozy times at home.
