Diagnostic Tools

I have figured out after over 43 years in practice how useful noninvasive tests such as facial diagnosis, iris diagnosis and pulses are to assess the cardiovascular system and other organs. The office still uses blood and urine tests when necessary.

Facial Diagnosis

In order to introduce an “oriental way” of diagnosis, I brought a known diagnostician to Bozeman in 2013 because I wanted my patients to learn it and use it with their families. See more information on my Facebook page. I studied this way of diagnosis under macrobiotics and through my naturopathic school, minoring on QiQong practices and Chinese medical philosophy with an emphasis on facial diagnosis.

Iris Diagnosis

Brings information on your past medical history and your health tendencies, as well as your constitutional strengths.

I recently brought to the office this last new tool for diagnosis and treatment. With the iris camera you will be able to see your strengths and what things you need to work on. I searched for many years on how to “inspire” patients on their health journey. This tool is very effective, painless, unobstructive and highly accurate. Photos are taken of the iris and the sclera, both eyes, after which I discuss with the patient the analysis and signs that are revealed. Do not miss this tool!

Tongue Diagnosis

This is another tool coming from the “Orient”. In the tongue you can see the movement of energy, and also heart conditions and mineral and vitamin deficiencies.

The tongue nearly always shows the true condition of the patient. It is particularly useful in complex, chronic conditions manifesting with contradicting symptoms and signs. Its strength relies in the fact that it is nearly always reliable and objective. For instance, a reddish/purple tongue color usually indicates blood stasis deriving from or associated with heat, whereas a swollen tongue indicates the presence of phlegm or mucous.

Other Tools

Regular medical exam, blood pressure, ph in saliva and urine, and urine analysis. As you can see on the chart to the right, there is a relationship between the tooth and the organs and meridians, meaning that dental work will affect the transmission of energy to the organs related to the individual teeth that have been worked on. This is a very important fact that will be addressed during our time together

After these assessments, other tests may be ordered and followed up at subsequent visits. These tests may include food allergy, hormonal, cardiovascular, and adrenal stress tests, as well as others.
