Genetic testing can be useful at different stages of life.

Our Naturopathic division has a range of tests which help find trouble spots before the trouble really starts. From hormone levels, to food reactions, to identifying environmental toxins, we provide objective information so you can map your path to wellness.
Testing for Heart Monitoring
Monitoring your heart’s activity can provide vital health information and detect potentially life-threating conditions. We are pleased to offer electrocardiograms (ECG) and Holter monitoring at many of our Patient Services Centres across the country.
A Holter monitor is a small, wearable device that records your heart activity for a minimum of 24 hours. The device is small and light-weight and hangs around your neck connecting cable to sensors attached to your chest.
What is an ECG?
An electrocardiogram, commonly known as an ECG or EKG, records how your heart is functioning by measuring its electrical activity through the placement of small sensors on your chest, arms and lower legs. It is a simple procedure completely in as quickly at 15 minutes.
