If you want your health to be different, than you have to be willing to do things differently!
Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are the only California-licensed primary care doctors formally trained in both mainstream and natural medicine. NDs diagnose and treat differently because they start with a completely different paradigm – yes – NDs treat with natural medicine and healthy lifestyle, but so much more, such as finding the causes of dis-ease. NDs help patients to get and stay healthy (vitality), not to merely control disease. If mainstream medical care is not helping you to achieve your health goals,
perhaps it is time to seek a naturopathic doctor – one of America’s Natural Medicine Experts!

Some tests just shouldn’t be graded on a curve and Shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg!

Has your doctor told you, “your blood test results are completely normal,” but instead of feeling relief, you felt worse, knowing that something was wrong, but the doctor was unable to find any answers?

The standard blood test “reference ranges” – are often so large that they have little practical value. For example, take the thyroid, one large Sacramento medical institution uses a TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) standard range of 0.1 – 5.5 (55 times difference between upper and lower values). Dr. Godby uses the more optimal 1.0-2.0 range, other thyroid blood tests, body temperature, symptoms and the Thyroflex to determine hypo/hyperthyroidism, and will diagnose 5-6 times more hypothyroidism than the average medical doctor. If you would like to learn more, here is the rest of the article Dr. Godby has written: Blood tests shouldn’t be graded on a curve. 

Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center wants you to be the healthiest (body, mind, spirit) that you can be. Please give us a call if you have the same goals.

Dr. Godby Interview Sacramento Bee

Dennis Godby’s office looks a lot like that of a typical doctor – stacks of books, chairs for patient conferences and a bench for taking vitals. But the diplomas and certificates on the wall behind him reveal a small variation – an N.D. after his name rather than an M.D.

The uncommon initials stand for naturopathic doctor, a health care provider trained in healing therapies, herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy and lifestyle counseling, in addition to many of the same basic sciences as a conventional physician.

Godby, like most naturopathic doctors, prefers not to rely on pharmaceuticals, which he says can be toxic to the body.
