WHAT SETS OUR CLINIC APART?

office waiting area

Heather Caruso of Caruso Clinic has been serving Guelph and it's surrounding area for the past 20 years. Her long term experience and thousands of hours of study has helped her to acquire a vast amount of knowledge on a natural, holistic approach to regaining health and vitality. This long term experience and knowledge provides the clinic's client with 100% natural health care and their best health outcome. The Caruso Clinic uses case taking and a variety of testing, to screen for one's unique holistic and nutritional needs and ascertains if there are any barriers to good health. This quality of natural health care and service cannot be found in the isles of any health food store, online or in a traditional doctor's office. Amazing things happen at the Caruso Clinic!

WHAT CONDITIONS DO YOU TREAT?

office desk

The clinic has seen 1000s of different cases over the years. Many people coming to the clinic have a pre-existing diagnosis and many do not. The beauty of natural medicine is that a diagnosis is not always required for successful treatment. Treatment is based on a person's unique set of symptoms, their nutritional holistic and dietary needs.

According to the Ontario government regulation only an allopathic medical doctor can diagnose and treat a disease. However, the clinic is fully able to treat a human being, who has a diagnosis of a disease, using natural and holistic means in order for them to achieve their best health and vitality naturally. Most of the clinic's clients report they love feeling more vibrant and healthy through natural means and in turn often times as their health improves, their need for medical intervention lessens.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN THE FIRST VISIT?

To the Caruso Clinic, each patient treated as an individual and their treatments are based on supporting their unique health needs by assessing symptoms, screening for nutritional deficiencies and barriers to good health. These barriers may be due to diet, nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle, toxins or other imbalances. The clinic may suggest further tests, depending on the health needs of the person.

The first meeting is 90 minutes Heather Caruso sits down and gets a well rounded picture of a person's well being, health and history. Be prepared for questions about your family history, energy, sleep, eating habits, allergies, digestion and any other indicators for health. Think about your symptoms and be ready to answer questions such as:

  • When do you feel like this?
  • When did this start?
  • What makes it better or worse?
  • Any other information you have about yourself, even if you may feel it is silly but a trigger or cause, we want to know. It is a good idea to think about your general health such as your energy, sleep, hormones, eating habits and digestion.

After casetaking, Heather will recommend dietary changes and/or natural medicine(s) tailored to the person's unique case. The natural medicines may be herbal remedies, vitamin, mineral or amino acid supplements, gemmotherapy or homeopathic medicine.

WHAT TYPES OF TESTING CAN I EXPECT?

The Caruso Clinic has a unique system of screening to provide clues about barriers to good health and a person's unique nutritional and holistic needs. These tests include:

  1. Electrodermal Screening (EAV) is a quick and non invasive tool that helps screen for health imbalances. It gives the practitioner clues as to how to proceed to best maximize treatment outcomes. EAV measures the electrical resistance of the skin (the galvanic skin response) on different acupuncture points. It is well known that acupuncture points carry a different electrical resistance than normal skin. Organ Stress Testing is done on each client when they have an appointment. This test measures energy excess or weakness on various acupuncture points and helps to determine what remedies, vitamins or supplements will maximize the patient's health. It also helps to gauge how the patient is progressing from one visit to the next and if changes should occur in their prescription. Food sensitivity testing, tests for over 270 common foods. To prepare for this test do not use hand or food lotion.
  2. Live Cell Testing/Darkfield microscopy is a fantastic nutritional tool. It is a nutritional test that provides useful information about a person's nutritional state, such as if they need digestive support, probiotics, omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, immune, inflammatory or cardiovascular support. To prepare for the test fast at least four hours and be sure to drink plain water prior to coming. Don't consume pork or chocolate 24 hours before your test.
  3. BIA testing, or bioimpedance analysis tests people's unique body composition. It measures the reactance and capacitance in the body. This tool can accurately approximate a person's body fat percentage, lean body mass and the number of calories they burn a day. This is very useful information when recommending a unique dietary plan. To prepare for this test do not use hand or food lotion.
  4. Hair Mineral analysis is another great tool to detect toxic minerals and mineral imbalances.

Other lab testing and screening, may be requested depending on the client's unique needs.

A personalized dietary analysis is done on those who wish guidance to ensure optimum nutrition through healthy eating.

Please note the clinic does not offer testing for non clients due to the amount of time we spend with our regular clients.
