3. Orthotic Casting -
You know the song that talks about how the foot bone is connected to knee bone? Well it’s truer than we realize. Improper foot biomechanics are often connected to low back pain. Dr. Orwick uses a company that provides a firm on the inside, soft on the outside Orthotic that her patients tend to like better than the typical hard plastic kind. She custom casts your foot, and it will take approximately 3 weeks to manufacture your unique Orthotic. Casting is easy and painless and we can order the Orthotic that fits your life style the best.
4. Genova (Great Smokies) Laboratory is a unique company in North Carolina that runs comprehensive lab tests, mainly for Naturopaths, DO’s and alternative friendly MD’s. The tests are generally more thorough than tests run in Primary Care Physician offices.
For the most difficult cases or the scientifically minded patient, Dr. Orwick will use Genova because of their quality and integrity. Some examples of testing that Genova performs are:
Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis-
Comprehensive thyroid test-
Cardio Vascular Profile
Prices vary according to tests ordered.
5. Cholesterol and Diabetes Panel -
Ideally your Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio should be 1 : 1.
The average American’s ratio is 10 : 1 and people with chronic pain have an average of 20 : 1.
If you lower yours to 4 : 1 then you decrease risk of heart disease by 70%.
You can increase Omega 3 by eating clean fish, flaxseed oil and clean EPA-

9. Nutritional Supplement Quality -
Fortunately and unfortunately the FDA does not monitor supplement and herbs. Many profit seeking, unethical or even uneducated companies are jumping on the bandwagon and producing vitamins. I often have patients tell me I've already tried "so and so" and it didn't work. Let us look at some differences in quality that you might not be aware of.
Metagenics is one of our main suppliers of supplements. An independent company assays the supplements to verify potency, purity and viability at the time of expiration.
One such independent study of probiotics pulled ten different Acidophilus products from a health food store shelf and assayed them. They found that none of the ten contained what the label represented. What is worse, several contained additional bad bacteria, like strep fecalis, indicitave of temperature damage. Many companies store their products in hot warehouses and ship them in hot trucks and then place the product in the refrigerator at the health food store. Other companies use low-
