The British Columbia Naturopathic Doctors has recommended a Naturopathic Fee Schedule as a guideline for naturopathic doctors. To compare, you can review the Doctors of BC Fees for Uninsured Services. Dr. Jiwani ND takes a more conservative approach, due to the understandable expense of private healthcare.

As a result, Dr. Jiwani ND offers a free initial consultation (approximately 30 minutes) so she can review your health concerns with you and discuss treatment options.

Thanks to Dr. Jiwani’s experience & affordability I have overcome my autoimmune baldness, that caused complete hair loss on my head and parts of my body. My specialist offered no hope but steroid injections without promise. I've got more energy and lost some weight too. Dr. Jiwani is caring and compassionate. I've been to another naturopath before, and in comparison everything was much more affordable, surprising since she has 20 years experience.

I took my 14 year old son to see Dr. Jiwani as his kidneys were failing. We were hopeful as she came highly recommended. Our first visit was intense and I couldn’t believe what she felt the diagnosis was, and how she planned to address it. I had trust because of her reputation and am glad we followed through as Dr. Jiwani has reversed my son’s disease. He was at 20% kidney function and after 5 months his kidneys are working at 66%. I am just frustrated that doctors don’t believe in natural medicine, as my son could have ended up on dialysis, needing a transplant.

I met Dr. Jiwani when I took my mom in for her diabetes, and really liked her approach. I decided to see her myself for stubborn weight that wouldn’t budge even after going keto. She really covered many aspects of my health, and after a few months of treatment I was down 15kg with 3kg to go. My mom is also not diabetic anymore per her doctor and is off her meds. Really recommend:)

I was diagnosed with colitis a few years ago, and with the drugs I was in remission. Then I had a ulcerative colitis flare that did not respond to multiple medications, so facing biologics I was looking for a naturopath to help. A lady at the grocery store recommended Dr. Jiwani. She’s very busy but I’m glad I waited to see her. Once I started treatment, I was feeling better after only a few months. I am so glad to have her as a part of my health team.

When I found Dr. Jiwani I had seen multiple specialists and alternative health providers. She was the only one that was confident yet frank about what it would take to get my rheumatoid arthritis under control, as the drugs had terrible side effects, while the biologics stopped working. It is a trying path to navigate and Dr. Jiwani has held my hand the whole way, the anger, the tears and the relief and joy when things improve despite everyone’s doubts. Now I understand my health in a completely different way, it is inspiring.

I finally saw Dr. Jiwani after my doctor said I was healthy, confirmed with multiple scans. I knew something was wrong, because every time I ate I had terrible indigestion, and the worst bloating & pain you could imagine. I tried removing various foods but nothing helped. Dr. Jiwani did a blood test and found multiple food allergies. Once I changed my diet, the difference was like night and day. I have lost weight on this plan, but the best part is my body swelling is gone. I am down 3 dress sizes, and full of energy, feeling half my age.

RAST Blood Test:

ISSUES:  Limited to only immediate reactions, which is a problem as most reactions are delayed; Limited number of foods tested because it is very expensive and the government does not want to pay much.

Food Challenge Test:

ISSUES:  Dangerous in some patients; does not test for delayed reactions; very hard to know if multiple allergies exist; very hard to follow strict diet to determine if allergy (new food introduction) exists.

 

 VEGA Test:

Testing using a machine that measures the resistance between the skin contacting the hand electrode (metal handle) and the skin touching a measuring handle.

Practitioner doing the test can affect the result as the harder the skin was pressed by the probe, the higher the meter reading. Testing must be repeated every few months, making it an expensive form of testing. Unreliable results.

Many US states considered this test illegal. Several medical associations have advised against their use, including the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, the Australian College of Allergy, the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the Allergy Society of South Africa.

In 1990 a medical practitioner was censured by the Medical Practitioners Disciplinary Committee in New Zealand for using a Vega machine. Another practitioner was censured by the Discipline Committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario in 1999 for having “failed to meet the standard of practice” in his use of the Vega machine in diagnosis. Reviews of the available evidence in the medical literature indicate that electrodermal testing, such as that performed with a Vega machine, is ineffective at diagnosing allergies and recommend that it not be used.

Study:

BBC looked into VEGA testing at different locations in the UK, and the results varied amongst the testing locations. This lack of reproducibility is exactly what discredits this test method, and why the FDA has banned the importation of these VEGA testing devices into the United States. The results are misleading as the patient feels they have a diagnosis.

Study: 

The British Journal of Medicine published a double blind study comparing its results from a VEGA testing device with those of Skin Prick testing in 30 patients. Half of these patients had already been positively reactive for allergy to cat dander & house dust mites. Conclusively, VEGA testing did NOT correlate with Skin Prick testing. (Lewis GT et al. 2001)

ELISA Blood Testing:

ELISA Blood Testing is also known as antigen blood analysis. ELISA detects particular antibodies in the blood, and is a very common form of medical testing. Enzyme Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay (ELISA) testing is used to diagnose Mono (Epstein-Barr virus), Malaria, Lyme disease, Tuberculosis, Hepatitis B, E.coli poisoning, AIDS (HIV), West Nile Virus, Influenza, Anemia, Chagas Disease, Ebola, Parasites, Home Pregnancy and Food Allergens in the Food Industry.

 

Dr. Jiwani’s Approach is ELISA Food Allergy Blood Testing:

Dr. Jiwani’s preferred method of Food Allergy Testing is ELISA Blood testing or Antigen Blood analysis. This state of the art technology, using Enzyme Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay (ELISA), requires a two vial blood sample drawn from the patient, and is sent to a CLIA registered lab in the United States. Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) are US federal regulatory standards that apply to all clinical lab testing done on humans in the US.

The CLIA registered lab tests for various antibody food allergy reactions on ninety-six different foods, producing accurate and reproducible results, confirmed with duplicate testing. Dr. Jiwani approves how the results are presented, as the levels of various antibody reactions (IgE, IgG & IgA) are shown in a bar graph format. Although few US labs do the ELISA testing, most are not regulated, nor provide duplicate testing to show how accurate the testing is.

These other labs, offering cheaper blood tests, show only a combined antibody result, instead of showing the different antibodies. It is crucial to report these different antibody levels as each antibody has a different affect in the body. IgE antibodies show allergies that are permanent whereas IgG & IgA show allergies that have been developed, and may go away with avoiding the food for a long enough time. This information is critical for Dr. Jiwani to share with her patients, which is why she uses a specific regulated US lab for food allergy blood testing. This lab does the testing once, and then they repeat the test again, to ensure the results are near identical. If the results are not statistically similar, the patient sample is tested again.
