Naturopaths focus on hormonal imbalance, patient sleep habits and nutrition to optimize patients to be able to heal themselves. Our suite of services are evidence-based and customized for each patient.
Customized for each of patient, IV therapy is the quickest way to add fluids and nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids to your body. Patients commonly report increased energy, enhanced mood, improved sleep, and decreased stress and anxiety.
Comprehensive Hormonal Analysis
Opioid use is known to suppress the function of the adrenal gland, the thyroid gland and both the male and female reproductive systems. Testing determines the degree of dysfunction and guides replacement strategies. An untreated imbalance will unnecessarily complicate recovery by causing depression, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, impaired libido and mood swings.
Specialty Laboratory Testing
All Blue Door patients receive pharmacogenomic profiling which uses information about a person’s genetic makeup, or genome, to choose the prescriptions and doses that are likely to work best for that particular person. This new field combines the science of how prescriptions work, called pharmacology, with the science of the human genome, called genomics.
The use of opioids, even for a short period, can lead to serious respiratory problems, including central sleep apnea. Central sleep apnea blunts the signals from your brainstem, meaning your body simply doesn’t have the signal to breathe. Patients cannot treat central sleep apnea with CPAP. During a sleep study, we identify central sleep apnea when patients have a precipitous drop in their blood oxygen levels. Overdose death can occur either when blood oxygen levels drop to dangerously low levels or when the drive to breathe becomes completely suppressed.
Opioid use disorders can indirectly pave the way to nutritional deficiencies. Too often, the side effects of taking opiates can be a lack of appetite, nausea, constipation, fatigue and depression. When a person isn’t feeling well or has gastrointestinal issues, a balanced diet isn’t necessarily on the priority list. Our recommendations for dietary supplements come from clinical experience and pharmacogenetic profiling. A balanced diet will help aid the body heal and rebuild.
