Default Questions for a naturopath

...


I fixed an appointment with a naturopath to help me with my diet. I
first want to meet with my family doctor to get all the test reports
off him (blood reports, radiographies, etc.) and bring them to the
naturopath in case there are things in those reports that he and I
should know.


I briefly talked with him over the phone today to set up an
appointment. I asked him if it is possible that my pot belly is made
more of water than fat. I know about "gut leak", but did not want to
mention the term yet. I just wanted to test his knowledge. He seemed
surprised with my questions and just said, "That's fat. That's fat".
Should I call another naturopath?


How should I prepare to face the naturopath? THanks.


So you think that you have a leak in your intestines that is causing
your abdomen to fill with fluid?

This "gut leak" stuff sounds like something made up by unscientific
people, sort of like the Chiropractors that claim all disease is due
to misalignments of spine.

Sorry, I am skeptical about the whole concept.

I'm seeing my doctor next week. I read that an ultrasound should tell
me if it is water or fat in belly. As he already took one a few months
back, I will ask him to analyse the ultrasound report he has.


So, what happened? Gut leak? Or fat?

This naturopath does not believe in gut leak. And my doctor never
heard of it... When I've found more about it, I'll let you know.
