Why Blood Testing?
At Back to Health Wellness Centre, we like to think of ourselves as a “head to toe health care centre” offering patients a variety of services to help them attain optimal health. One such service is that through our Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Kathy Van Zeyl, we offer patients a variety of blood testing services.
In November of 2012, the Ontario Medical Association changed their guidelines for the frequency of physical exams and routine bloodwork performed by family doctors from yearly to only once every two years. This change in combination with the number of patients in Ontario without a family doctor (15.5% of Canadians aged 12 and over as of 2013) has left a huge gap in preventative screening and early intervention of health-related concerns.
