by Dr. Lawrence Blanchard, ND, MDiv
There are so many health care practitioners and options out there to choose from. How do you know if you have found the right practitioner for you and your family? Below are 12 questions to consider in choosing the right practitioner for you.
- Do they know how to accurately analyze your Autonomic Nervous System in order to find out if it’s working correctly?
Your Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is the self-governing system that constantly, moment by moment, regulates every function of your body. Heart rate, breathing, digestion, hormonal balance – everything. It keeps your body functioning without you thinking about it. But when your ANS is not working the way it should, the result is declining health. Unless the ANS is corrected first, nothing works the way it should in your body. As a result, your health will never improve and no matter what you try, you will never completely resolve your health problems. A competent health practitioner will know how to test your ANS to find out if it is functioning, properly, and if not, how to correct your ANS before he does anything else. Checking the ANS is always standard procedure on every office visit with Dr. Blanchard.
- Do they know how to precisely and non-invasively find out exactly what nutrition you need?
Nutrition provides the building blocks your body needs in order to repair, rebuild and restore itself. Nutrition can be complex. But what exactly do you need? A good health practitioner will be able to accurately and precisely know what you need, how much you need, and for how long you need it to obtain maximum health improvement. No guesswork! This is how Dr. Blanchard helps each of his clients.
- Do they offer the highest quality, completely natural and safe, clinically tested whole food nutritional, herbal and homeopathic supplements exactly matched to your body’s needs?
If you want the best in natural health care, no matter if young or older, there are two indispensable things that are needed: effective, safe and clinically-tested natural supplements and a sure-fire method of exactly matching them to your body’s needs. We take the guesswork out of health care! Dr. Blanchard uses only the best whole food and homeopathic nutritional supplements in his Clinically Designed Nutrition program tailor-made for each client.
- Do they know how to accurately test you in order to find out if you have food sensitivities that may be contributing to your health problems?
One of the most common interferences to getting health improvement is finding and correcting food sensitivities. Often we eat the wrong “foods” or even good foods too often and start collecting undigested food proteins in our system. Until that issue is addressed and resolved, you will not get better. Dr. Blanchard always includes this test with every client at every office visit.
- Can they precisely determine if there is an immune challenge preventing you from getting your health back?
Your health can be suppressed by a variety of immune challenges such as out-of-control bacterial, viral, fungal or parasite problems. A good health practitioner will be able to find out what is going on and make recommendations to help you resolve these issues completely. Dr. Blanchard always includes this test with every client.
- Can they know with certainty if a part of the underlying causes for unresolving health issues is chemical or heavy metal toxicity?
Another common set of underlying causes of illness or non-optimal health is chemical or heavy metal poisoning. We are exposed daily to all kinds of toxicity. Unless properly and non-invasively resolved, health will continue to decline in these cases. Dr. Blanchard always includes this test with every client, as well.
- Do they test to find out if surface scars could be interfering with the ability of your body to heal itself?
This issue is puzzling to many, but surface scars sometimes interfere with the ability of the body to heal itself. Problem scars can be easily taken care of. Dr. Blanchard always includes this test with every client.
- Do they perform an Iris Analysis to help analyze the potential inherited strengths and weaknesses of your body?
An Iris Analysis helps to create a more complete picture of what strengths and weaknesses you’ve inherited from your ancestors. Once you know that, you can better adjust your lifestyle to help yourself get better health improvement. Dr. Blanchard always includes this Iris Analysis along with a digital picture of your eyes and a written evaluation for every client in the Initial Evaluation and Consultation.
- Do they give you a written Report of Findings as a part of the Initial Health Evaluation and Consultation?
In the Initial Health Evaluation and Consultation, does the health practitioner take all the information and test results into consideration and give you a comprehensive written Report of Findings? Additionally, does he take the time to read it through with you to make sure you understand it and answer any questions or concerns you might have? Dr. Blanchard always gives a written Report of Findings and goes through it with every client.
- Do they have a system of follow-up to determine if you’re improving in your health?
Health improvement is not a quick fix, but takes time. To ensure that improvement is being made, is there a system in place to measure and monitor your improvement? Does the health practitioner have the clinical know-how and experience to do effective follow-up? Dr. Blanchard uses an analysis system called Nutrition Response Testing in every follow-up visit with each client.
- Do they offer affordable family plans?
More than ever, adults and children need great natural health care at a reasonably affordable rate. Dr. Blanchard offers not only a reduced rate for children, but if parents are on our health plan, children 12 and under get free office visits. This investment is the best way to help ensure the entire family’s health keeps improving and invest in your children’s future.
- Do they provide on-going education to help put you in charge of your own health care?
Learning to responsibly take charge of your health requires education. Does your health practitioner regularly give you literature to keep you up-to-date on many issues and lifestyle choices affecting your health? Dr. Blanchard has a complete educational program to compliment the health care plan of each client including the availability of your own special “Client Advocate” to discuss your questions.
