Does anyone know of any Paleo friendly naturopath in Westchester NY? I believe I'm suffering from SIBO or some kind of fungal overgrowth and would like some professional help in dealing with it.

Does anyone know of an MD, naturopath or anyone who is based in Sydney that could help diagnosis and treatment of/for adrenal fatigue?? Sorry if this has already been asked. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A real doctor, such as an MD or DO, will not diagnose adrenal fatigue because it is not a disease.

Does anyone happen to know how I can find a good functional medicine doctor or naturopathic doctor in my area? Are there any good online directories that you know of for this? (Preferably one that will help me avoid quacks!)
