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?
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 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:
- 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 testing, tests for over 270 common foods. To prepare for this test do not use hand or food lotion.
- 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.
- 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.
OTHER SERVICE, 4 SYNERGISTIC HEALING SESSION
This healing service harnesses key therapies such a far infrared heat, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF), negative ions and natural crystals. These therapies work synergistically together to provide a relaxing and therapeutic experience.
Far Infrared Heat Therapy
Each 4 Therapy Healing Mat is based around Far Infrared Heat Therapy through the use of crystals including amethyst, jade & tourmaline. When heated these crystals create far infrared heat that penetrates 3-8 inches into the body. This far infrared heat can improve blood flow & micro circulation were applied. It can also help temporarily relief minor muscle, joint pain and stiffness. This relief of joint pain has been associated with helping arthritis, muscle spasms, minor strains and improved relaxation.
Alone far infrared heat therapy can have dramatic results but it is further improved by the other therapies such as from the negative ions that are also generated by the amethyst, jade & tourmaline crystals used. When heated, these crystals can create over 1500+ negative ions per square inch. Negative ions act as the anti-oxidants of the air which fight free radicals and are an essential building blocks of life.
Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy ( PEMF )
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF or PEMFT) is a technology that uses pulses of low frequency electromagnetic waves that can extend up to several feet. These magnetic pulses stimulate cells magnetic fields energizing them. This can provide a wide range of benefits, improving ones well-being synergistically working with the far infrared therapy and negative ions.
Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy is been a long tested therapy that has proven to be effective when certain wave lengths are used. Healthy Wave Mats use 660nm red lights which scientific studies have shown to be the most effective wave length providing optimal benefits. Just like plants absorb and use energy from the sun converting light into energy we perform a similar process converting light energy into ATP which is referred to as the “molecular currency” for energy transfer. Red light therapy is a great synergistic therapy used in conjunction with far infrared therapy and PEMF therapy.
