Jack Lombardi, CEO of Chicago Website Design SEO Company, says, “We are offering a free audit of your current SEO activities. We will provide you with a complete overview of your local SEO performance in minutes, including search rankings, local listings, reviews, on-site SEO & social media.”

He continues, “Your search for the best SEO company in Chicago finally ends here. Having succeeded where the competition didn’t, we hope you agree our SEO services prove to be the more effective.

A major service provided by Chicago Website Design SEO Company is search engine optimization that allows the business to connect with potential customers near the business. This is important because there are over 10 billion distinct searches performed in the United States. It was also found that over 40 percent of those searches are local searches. Thus, local SEO can truly offer a massive opportunity for local businesses.

Chicago Website Design SEO Company can provide SEO experts who are experienced and knowledgeable regarding the development of strategies that will make the particular business stand out from the competition and rank for the localized keywords. People who perform a search are often ready to buy a particular product or service when they browse the Internet in their area. And through a proper local SEO marketing strategy, the business will rank high in the search results, which means that the business will be among the first to be seen by the searcher.

Local SEO strategies are needed because there is no need for local business to compete with international companies. Focus can be made on the local people as potential customers, which requires less effort. And there is also the advantage that approximately 50 percent of consumers who use their smartphone to search for a business will visit that particular business within a day. And approximately 34 percent of those who search a business using a tablet or computer will visit that business within a day. The local SEO strategies used by Chicago Website Design SEO Company focus on the people who can actually visit the physical location of the business.

It has also been noted that nine out of 10 people use search engines to locate local stores, restaurants, or businesses. Google My Business (GMB) optimization can help in assisting customers in finding out the phone number, address, and other information regarding a particular business that they are interested in. Also, GMB and Google Maps often occupy almost 30 percent of the first page of search results. This could be a primary component of the efforts of a business in expanding its brand authority and credibility.

Another component of the SEO efforts that Chicago Website Design SEO Company can help with is the content of the website. Content remains the king as it is the reason people will visit a particular website. This is also where the website owner can include the keywords, images, links, and videos that are important for SEO. Furthermore, through professional content, the business would be able to communicate to its target audience a possible solution to their problems.

Those who are interested in SEO and other services offered by Chicago Website Design SEO Company can visit their website or contact them through the phone or via email.

Furniture Of Dalton Unveils New Website

January 08, 2020 – – Dalton, Georgia based Furniture of Dalton, is pleased to announce that their new website is now fully operational and ready to welcome furniture hunters with a taste for quality and affordability. The company hosts a comprehensive catalog of furniture designed to suit virtually every lifestyle and preference, and their website will give customers the ability to browse and examine this catalog whenever they wish. Learn more here:

As Furniture of Dalton proudly states on their website, “The Furniture of Dalton name has always meant a commitment to our customers that they have a warm, inviting home. We have always offered the highest quality furniture and interior design options in concert with a staff that understands the industry. We don’t hire ‘salespeople,’ we hire professional furniture and interior design experts and continuously train them in the ever-changing facets of the manufacturers and products that we are proud to be associated with.”

They continue, “We have a huge selection of quality furniture, in a vast array of styles, and at excellent values in today’s competitive marketplace. Our friendly, professional sales associates go out of their way to make you feel as welcome and comfortable in our store as you would want your guests to be in your home.”

The sheer variety of high-quality furniture on offer has made Furniture of Dalton a household name in the years since its inception. However, customers who wanted a new piece of furniture previously had to make a trip to the company’s nearest showroom to explore their options. While this meant customers would sometimes have to dedicate an inordinately long period of time to find a piece that truly spoke to them and meshed with their home, Furniture of Dalton previously took steps to mitigate this issue by relying on a versatile and knowledgeable sales staff who could direct people to the furniture they would eventually fall in love with.

Today, customers no longer have to visit a showroom if they do not have the time or simply prefer otherwise. Furniture of Dalton’s website neatly and concisely lists furniture on its website. These listings feature clear pictures of each item along with complementary items so you can find matching pieces. The products are displayed with a short description of their features as well as a notation declaring whether or not they are in stock.

Additionally, those browsing the website can check reviews and ratings left by other customers. On this note, the company invites its customers to leave a review of the furniture they purchase and use; many pieces have yet to receive their first rating due to the website only just being launched. Similarly, those who have bought furniture in the past are welcome to visit the listing for their favorite piece and share how they feel about it. Customers should also be aware that the website’s online store is not yet active. However, the company plans to add this feature soon. At the moment, customers are welcome to browse the catalog of furniture online before they stop by the store for a quick pickup or further consultation with their staff. Learn more at the following link:

Furniture of Dalton enjoys an excellent reputation among its customers for quality furniture as well as impeccable customer service. According to a 5-Star Google review left by Bolling Thompon, visiting the furniture store was “a spectacular experience. Something for every taste and always a great price. Design, layout, merchandising is perfect. Sarah Mitchell was extremely helpful and most professional. She has a great sense of color, texture, and pattern. We could not have done it without her input. Went in for a chair & came out with that and a new sectional sofa! All items delivered and are absolutely beautiful. Delivery service was first rate. Sarah has checked upon us to make sure we were pleased. We are more than pleased and highly recommend Furniture of Dalton.”

Customers are welcome to visit the website at any time to browse Furniture of Dalton’s available pieces. They may also continue to visit their nearest showroom to take in the extensive selections on hand in person. Should they wish to make any further inquiries, they may get in touch with Ken Brown of Furniture of Dalton. They may also lookup more of the company’s offerings at the following link:

ReleaseID: 60033474 – Premier STD Dating Website Launches App on NYE

January 08, 2020 – – (Meet Positives), one of the Internet’s best-known dating websites for singles with STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases), has now launched its long-awaited app which will have 100% compatibility with Android phones, iPhones, tablets, and desktops.

Those who acquire a sexually transmitted infection (STI) often feel that they are alone, but the truth is, they are not. According to the CDC, there are 20 million new viral infections every year with the most common STI/STDs being: Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B, Genital Herpes, HIV, Syphilis, Trichomoniasis and Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

These infections and diseases are increasing and half of them occur within the 15-24 age bracket as this group is the most sexually active. Experts have estimated that the number of sexually transmitted infections among Americans now totals more than 110 million. Even allowing for the fact that the figure is for infections and not people (some people may have more than one infection), it is still a staggeringly high figure. Although many of these infections cannot be cured, their symptoms can be treated and managed meaning those with an infection can still lead a long and healthy life.

A significant number of affected singles are in their early to mid-twenties and it is at this age that most singles are looking to date and find love. Dating or looking for love is hard enough at the best of times, but it becomes much harder still if someone has an STD or an STI.

There is still a lot of stigma in society concerning getting an infection or virus through sex. People are embarrassed to get one and feel that they have somehow done something wrong. The stigma society attaches to STIs and STDs is part of the reason that they are on the increase. People do not get tested and so the infections are passed on to others.

In addition, when couples meet and get to know each other, it is usually sex that is on the agenda, rather than sexual health. Often sex will take place without one partner disclosing their condition and eventually, of course, the other partner will realize they have an infection and the accusations will start. Not many relationships will survive that. Even those who are honest about their condition dread having to face the fact that sooner or later it will be necessary to have “The Talk.”

Meet Positives initially reached out to many STI and STD sufferers to learn from their experiences of just how difficult it was to date when being positive. And so, the company’s catchphrase “Never Have ‘The Talk’ Again” was born.

A spokesperson for Meet Positives said, “‘The Talk’ is one of the biggest problems facing someone with an STI or STD when dating. Our aim was to help positive singles avoid this embarrassment and the potential rejection that often follows by matching them with people who are living with the same condition.”

Meet Positives’ algorithm not only matches members living with the same condition(s), but also by distance or any other personally saved criteria within a member’s profile. It is not just those looking to date or for love that join, however. Many members joined because they wanted to learn more about their conditions in the discussion forums and perhaps, even to share their own stories.

Sylvia J., a Meet Positives member, said, “I had been through “the Talk” three times and each time it ended the relationship. I stopped dating completely because I just couldn’t face going through it again. I came across Meet Positives on the Internet and saw their catchphrase about never having “The Talk” again and joined there and then. Since joining, I have learned more about my condition by talking with others and recently I met someone, and we started dating. It was such a relief not to have to go through “The Talk” again.”

Meet became part of the Internet in 2014 with one simple aim, which was to offer a safe place for positive singles to learn and hopefully meet someone with whom they could enjoy having a healthy relationship while living with an STD.

Veterinary Clinic In Toronto Releases New Report On Xylitol

January 08, 2020 – – Bickford Park Animal Hospital, a veterinary clinic in Toronto, ON, recently published a new and highly informative report on Xylitol and why it is deadly to dogs. The report explains what Xylitol is and how it can have serious adverse effects on the health of one’s dog. It also contains a great deal of information that dog owners may find very useful when thinking of ways to preserve their dogs health.

It is important to consider all the important factors involved in ensuring a dog remains healthy. A dog needs regular exercise, comfortable living conditions and food that offers high nutritional value. This also involves ensuring that one is not giving their dog food that can make it sick. Xylitol is an alcohol that naturally occurs in many plants, including fruits and vegetables. It is often used as a substitute for sugar in sugar free candy and can be used to help prevent tooth decay in humans. Xylitol is, however, quite poisonous to dogs, and even a small amount can be deadly to them.

“To humans, if you eat a lot of xylitol, it might cause some digestive issues. But in general, it’s well tolerated,” says the veterinary clinic in their report. “For our non-primate friends, though, it’s a different story. If your dog, or cat for that matter, eats xylitol, it causes an insulin spike. This can lead to hypoglycemia, a condition where their blood sugar drops. It can also lead to severe liver failure, which is deadly.”

Xylitol poisoning produces a number of symptoms in dogs that ingest it. They may display tiredness or weakness, vomiting, seizures, rapid heart rate, jaundice, black or generally unhealthy stool and trembling. If one suspects their dog has consumed Xylitol, it is important to determine what food or substance they may have consumed that contained the Xylitol and how much of it they may have consumed. It is usually best to simply contact a vet who will examine the dog, determine the severity of the poisoning and recommend an appropriate form of treatment. Bickford Park Animal Hospital can help those who believe their pet has consumed this poisonous substance, and they are always ready and willing to offer help where it is needed.

Bickford Park Animal Hospital is a full service, Toronto based veterinary clinic that provides a wide range of veterinary health services to owners of cats and dogs. No matter what breed one might have and what issue it may be suffering from, Bickford Park Animal Hospital has the tools and knowledge needed to help keep dogs and cats at their healthiest. The veterinarians at Bickford are all highly trained and committed to staying up to date on all the latest medical research and techniques in order to provide pets with the best available care. Visit their Instagram page online at the following link:

“I couldn’t say anything but great things about this clinic and the people working there,” says a 5-Star Google Maps review of the veterinary clinic. “I was so worried when my senior cat got sick, and they were able to get me in that very day, which was a huge relief. A major issue for me was the money; I’m 17, living on my own and going to college with no financial support from family, so a vet visit was an expense that I just hadn’t foreseen for my very tight budget. Thankfully, the vet was able to help me find the best treatment plan that would ensure both my cat’s health while remaining financially viable for me, which was an immense weight lifted off my shoulders. Now my cat is healthier than ever and I’ve found the vet she’ll be seeing from now on!”

Another client left a 5-Star review on the same platform as well, saying, “I brought my foster dog there, who they were kind enough to give support to. Very kind staff, and they ensure you are well informed about your dog’s needs moving forward. They took great care of my guy, who was in need of some extra care.”

Those in need of a reliable veterinary service are encouraged to get in touch with Bickford Park Animal Hospital. Visit their Facebook page online at or contact Dr. Helen Foster directly to learn more.

Custom Car Mods Shop In London, Ontario Takes A Look At The Nissan X-Trail

January 08, 2020 – – London, ON based one-stop custom car electronics shop Carphonix recently published a new blog post discussing the Nissan X-Trail, a car that is only available in two countries: Canada and Japan. The article explores whether this means the car can accurately be considered a Canadian or Japanese vehicle, as well as its general features and capabilities. Car enthusiasts may read the original blog post, aptly titled ‘Is This A Canadian Or A Japanese Car?’ in full on their official website, which can be found here:

Embedded within the article is a video that the company posted to their Youtube channel (discussing the same subject in further detail). The video showcases a stately Nissan X-Trail that the show’s hosts, Gatlin from Carphonix and Craig from Bonsai Rides, brought in to take a closer look at. Naturally, audiences will be able to explore the car’s features alongside the videos hosts, including the power under the hood, the interior, and the body. While Canadian and Japanese owners of the Nissan X-Trail can both revel in the fact that they drive such a unique and exclusive vehicle, both the blog and the video note that there are indeed a few notable differences between the models sold in each country.

For instance, the article explains, “You might notice this is a right-side drive. So, clearly not Canadian. As well, the Canadian version has dials for the climate control and 4×4, whereas this one is all digital.” It continues, “It’s got some pretty cool features as well, including a built in can cooler. That’s right, if you want to keep your drinks cool while you’re on the road, this little fellow will do it for you!”

Similarly, Craig demonstrates in the video that the can holder is snugly hidden behind a small hatch in the dashboard. The car has enough room for a single can, with a vent at the rear that is tied into the air conditioning system. Notably, the duo also discovered that part of the car’s bodywork appears to be made of some kind of tough plastic, though the hood is metal.

As the video was originally streamed live, a commenter asked the hosts how long it takes for the car to arrive in Canada. Craig answers that, “From point of purchase, it takes about six weeks before it’s in Ontario and I can start getting it ready for people.” He then notes that actually looking for a vehicle, “can add a lot of time to that, though, if it’s a very specific order.” Later on in the video, he says that the cost of procuring a vehicle from Japan is heavily dependent on certain factors. “Just to get it from Japan to the Pacific Coast is, maybe, 1000 CAD but they go by volume.” He also warns, “Bringing it inland to Ontario or inland to the US—that’ll double in price.”

Continuing the discussion, Craig and Gatlin consider the practicalities of owning a Nissan X-Trail imported from Japan. Here, Craig states that the associated regulations depend on the province the car is being imported to. “Quebec has a 25-year ban on right hand drives, it’s 15 in Ontario—with pretty much no compliance other than getting a safety certificate written. British Columbia and some other provinces require you to change the headlights.” Indicating the headlights on the Nissan X-Trail they had with them, Craig observes that, “These are not E-Code headlights, which means, in Canada, they’re aiming into oncoming traffic.” In British Columbia and other provinces with such regulations, the Nissan X-Trail’s headlights would need to be fixed with E-Code glass in order for them to be considered safe for local traffic.

Those interested in learning more about the Nissan X-Trail are welcome to visit Carphonix’s blog or Youtube channel to watch the duo’s exploration in full, including their opinions on the vehicle’s engine and interior. Carphonix’s staff are considered London, ON’s top car stereo and electronics experts, and they boast a full complement of aftermarket and custom electronic solutions. They are able to service a large variety of vehicles, including cars, vans, large trucks and RVs, motorcycles, and even marine pleasure craft.

Carphonix’s customer reviews tend to reflect the quality of their work in glowing terms. In a 5-Star Google review, Carol G. says that she experienced, “Great customer service! My husband and I bought a new stereo for our boat, had to install it ourselves. Dev was very helpful in showing us what we had to do when we arrived at our boat. When we got stuck, he was very helpful on the phone and solved our issue. Highly recommend Carphonix in London!”

Speech Therapy Clinic In Washington, DC Shares Tips For Children Struggling With Change

January 08, 2020 – – Washington, DC based speech therapy clinic District Speech is reaching out to the wider community to share tips for parents whose children are struggling with change. The company offers speech therapy for both adults and children. More information about the company and their services can be found at the following link:

Jennifer Branchini, Founder of District Speech, says, “Any time of great change can pose great challenges for some kids, and they may struggle with it. But the answer to helping them deal with change is simple: routines. Children, much like the rest of us, handle change best if it is expected and occurs in the context of a familiar routine. This means, as a parent, it is your duty to prepare your child for change by familiarizing them with a routine.”

District Speech says that there are several benefits of establishing routines with children. One such benefit is that it is often comforting when a child knows what to expect with specific aspects of their life. It helps them cope better when the unexpected arises. Beyond that, adding structure to a young child’s day can also help them build a strong foundation of good habits, whether it be setting a time for homework or creating good personal hygiene routines.

According to District Speech, routines are also great for encouraging communication and learning steps in a task. When daily tasks that may have once been a struggle (like nap time and brushing teeth) become a routine, the power struggle for parents is often reduced or eliminated.

They also provide some tips for creating routines and schedules for children, the first one being the enforcement of consistent timing to help create good habits. The company also recommends creating a daily schedule with visuals as well as pictures, and says that using Velcro or sticky notes to represent each task might be helpful and encouraging. This is due to the fact that children can easily take the task off of their schedule once complete and feel a sense of progression.

The clinic further highlights the importance of having the right number of items for the children’s schedules, and says that children need to be taught how to use the schedule. As a final tip, Branchini adds, “While consistency is important, the schedule should still be flexible to an extent. The thing is that all children are different, and the finer details of a schedule would be customized around your child’s specific needs.”

District Speech’s dedication to helping adults and children alike with their speech has earned them massive praise from their clients. On Google, the company has a near perfect rating of 4.9/5 Stars from over 50 reviews. In a recent 5-Star review, Jennifer Bonner says, “My child has had several years of early intervention. It wasn’t until Lee and Jennifer began investing and collaborating on addressing my child’s needs did I finally see significant progress in a short time. Lee identified additional special needs and modified the approach. My kid has fun and enjoys going. I feel that all the staff at District Speech really care about my child and are invested in seeing her reach her full potential. I feel like my kid will succeed thanks to them.”

The speech clinic also maintains their excellent ratings on Yelp. In her review, Mary W. says, “I cannot say enough about these wonderful women! They have produced miracles for my family. My younger son is five years old has a severe speech impediment. It made him self-conscious, and embarrassed to speak in front of people. Through their loving, patient work, he is almost completely better. He is still a work in progress, but I have confidence that he will continue to improve!” More reviews can also be found at the following link:

Branchini says, “At District Speech, we believe that fostering strong relationships with our clients is essential to successful, effective speech and language therapy. We are a team of clinicians who believe in going above and beyond for our clients. To us, that involves more than just meeting the client’s needs. We also focus on being an ongoing resource for them, which allows us to ensure that they are thoroughly seen to.”

Those who want to learn more about District Speech and the various services they provide are welcome to visit the company’s website to explore further. Additionally, the company encourages interested parties to get in touch with Jennifer Branchini directly via email, phone or, the contact form on their website. District Speech also maintains a presence on Facebook where they frequently post updates, share blog posts, and communicate with their customers.

Speech Therapy Clinic Stresses Importance of Knowing the Signs of Stroke

January 08, 2020 – – District Speech, a speech therapy clinic in Washington, DC, with website at, has stressed the importance of being aware of the potential signs of a stroke. First of all, people have to be aware of the risk factors for stroke, such as obesity, sedentary lifestyle, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and recurrent consumption of alcohol and drugs. It should be noted that a stroke does not only occur in seniors but it can happen in people who are in their 20s, 30s and 40s.

The three common types of stroke are ischemic, hemorrhagic, and transient ischemic attack (TIA). In ischemic stroke, blood flow to the brain is reduced due to arteries being narrowed or blocked. In hemorrhagic stroke, blood vessels have been ruptured. In TIA, there is a temporary blockage and this is manifested by stroke symptoms for a short period of time and is a “warning” sign of another possible stroke.

Jennifer Branchini, founder of District Speech, explains, “It’s important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of a stroke so you can act FAST. Remember the acronym FAST. F is for facial weakness, A is for arm weakness, S is for slurred speech, and T is for timely response. The sooner you’re able to receive care for your stroke, the better your long term outcomes are predicted to be.”

A common effect of a stroke is speech impairment, which is generally termed as aphasia. While some stroke patients are ultimately able to get back their normal speech patterns, there are speech therapy exercises that can help with their recovery.

Meanwhile, District Speech provides comprehensive speech/language evaluations. They also offer private therapy services to adults for various conditions. These include accent reduction, apraxia, aphasia, auditory processing disorder, articulation and phonological disorder, cleft lip/palate, autism spectrum disorder, cognitive communication deficits, dysfluency or stuttering, developmental speech/language delay, dyslexia and reading related disorders, dysphagia, receptive/expressive language disorder, oral motor deficits, tongue thrust, social communication disorder, written language disorder, voice impairments, and traumatic brain injury. More information about District Speech services can be gleaned on their Facebook page at

District Speech also offers other services, such as autism screenings, cleft lip and palate speech evaluation, orofacial myofunctional disorders, and accent modification. The autism screenings provided make use of the Developmental Assessment of Young Children – Second Edition (DAYC-2). DAYC-2 is a popular test that is helpful in determining those children from birth through 5-11 with possible delays in communication, cognition, physical development, social-emotional development, and adaptive behavior. The DAYC-2 format allows examiners to get relevant information regarding a child’s abilities through interview with caregivers, observation, and direct assessment.

A specialty service from District Speech is perceptual speech evaluation for cleft palate. Children with cleft palate usually suffer from velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD), which may be the result of structural defects, neurological/physiological disorders, and development of atypical articulatory placements and error patterns. A cleft palate is one of the most common causes of VPD. The perceptual speech evaluation performed by District Speech involves a number of components. These include resonance and airflow/pressure evaluation; articulation evaluation; oral mechanism examination; and speech and language evaluation.

District Speech also offers comprehensive reading evaluation to be used as basis for proper instruction and relevant interventions for children with reading impairments. The reading evaluation process includes tests for: alphabet, word identification, spelling, word attack, fluency, and passage comprehension. The receptive language component of the reading evaluation process includes tests for measuring listening comprehension and vocabulary. Also, deficiencies in phonological processing skills are evaluated using tests for phonological/phonemic awareness, phonological memory, and rapid naming.

Another condition that is evaluated at District Speech is orofacial myofunction disorder, which is a condition where the tongue moves forward too much when the patient talks and/or swallows. The tongue may move too far forward during rest or it may protrude between the upper and lower teeth when swallowing or during speech.

Naturopathic Doctor In Toronto Warns Of The Health Dangers Of an Inconsistent Work Schedule

January 08, 2020 – – Dr. Sheila Dyer, ND, a naturopathic doctor based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with website at, has warned that an inconsistent work schedule can have a negative impact on a person’s health. This is due to the disruption of a person’s circadian rhythm, which is the internal wake-sleep cycle of a particular person. Having a disrupted circadian rhythm, for whatever reason such as working late until the wee hours or having jet lag, can have an effect like being intoxicated. Dr. Dyer explains that there are health risks from having a disrupted circadian rhythm for a substantial period of time.

Dr. Dyer explains, “There are five most commonly diagnosed health risks associated with the disruption of the circadian rhythm. These are heart disease, certain types of cancer, diabetes, digestive disorders, and adrenal fatigue. If your work schedule means that you may have circadian system irregularities, I’ve got experience helping patients with their sleep issues, and have managed to leverage natural remedies to help them. In addition to helping you sleep, I can also work on reducing your risk of developing the above mentioned conditions. Take action now to address your sleep cycle irregularities, and enjoy life at a whole new level.”

Studies have shown that the risk of developing heart disease is directly proportional to how long people work night shifts or rotating shifts. Fortunately, it was also observed that avoiding that kind of lifestyle will also result into the reduction of the chances of getting heart disease. Dr. Sheila Dyer can help provide an appropriate naturopathic medical assessment for those who believe their health is being undermined by their work schedule.

Meanwhile, the body produces melatonin at the time when a person is supposed to sleep and it is this chemical that helps a person sleep. However, an inconsistent work schedule, disrupts melatonin production. Unfortunately, studies have revealed that melatonin also has anti-oxidant and anti-cancer properties, with the result that an inconsistent work schedule has been found to be statistically related to breast cancer, endometrial cancer, prostate cancer, and colorectal cancer.

Aside from affecting melatonin and cortisol, a disrupted circadian rhythm has also been found to affect the hormones that regulated appetite, obesity, and diabetes. Studies have revealed that the risk of diabetes or metabolic syndrome is higher in people in shift work schedules.

Furthermore, people with inconsistent work schedules have been observed to have more frequent bouts of diarrhea, constipation, and abdominal pain. The also tend to have a higher chance of developing irritable bowel syndrome or ulcers in the small intestine.

And finally, people who have inconsistent work schedules produce so much cortisol in their bodies that the endocrine system goes into some kind of shock. Dr. Dyer suggests that people who are experiencing such high level stress, consult with a naturopathic doctor and get their levels tested. A 24-hour salivary panel is often used to find out if adrenal fatigue is being caused by a person’s inconsistent work schedule.

Dr. Dyer offers naturopathic medicine assessment among other services. She wants to stress that people may be in for a surprise, having been used to the usual consultation with a medical doctor that often lasts for only a short time. In contrast, a naturopathic medicine assessment usually lasts for 90 minutes. The process takes a look at a number of things, including the patient’s health goals, health history, current physical state, current emotional state, and current lifestyle. Dr. Dyer may also request some laboratory testing, such as blood test, stool sample, urine sample, hair sample, and salivary assessment. Dr. Dyer may then propose a number of naturopathic services. These include acupuncture, functional diagnostic testing, and nutritional counselling.
