We offer a variety of testing including conventional testing, microbiology and comprehensive stool analysis, cortisol testing, saliva for hormones, environmental exposure testing, nutrient (vitamin and mineral) test, and neurotransmitter testing.
How much does testing cost?
Depending on whether we test hormones, neurotransmitters, epigenetics, adrenals and/or thyroid, the tests usually range from $50 to $299.

Do you treat cancer?
Katrina Bogdon, ND, FABNO, cannot treat disease in the state of Missouri, so she does not claim to treat any condition. She does provide integrative naturopathic care for people who are under the care/treatment of a licensed oncologist. Katrina does not provide alternative (natural-only) care for cancer.
In your initial visit, Katrina review your cancer history and your current and past medical treatment, which might include a wait-and-watch approach by your oncologist, hospice care, or preventative care. She will ask your permission to sign a consent form so that she can send her consult notes to your doctor and request your medical records. Her goals of integrative oncology care include:
- Monitor for any potential drug-herb-food interactions, helping to ensure that clients do not begin any supplements/foods that may interact with therapy
- Decrease risk of side effects so that patients can receive their full course of therapy on time
- Provide evidence-based natural recommendations that are synergistic with the prescribed therapy
- Support performance status and digestive health during treatment
What do you do at the first visit?
In the first visit, Katrina Bogdon will take a history of your chief concerns/symptoms, your past medical history, your allergies, current medications and supplements, basic life history, ask about other symptoms you may have elsewhere in your body, and basic aspects of your health such as sleep, digestion, stress, energy, and regular movement. She may do a non-invasive and non-diagnostic physical exam. Based on the history and exam, she may then recommend labs, make referrals, and provide naturopathic recommendations.
Why are you licensed in Washington and not Missouri?
The state of Missouri does not license the practice of naturopathic medicine. The level of education varies greatly in this unlicensed state—from simply self-educated to correspondence school education to people who have completed a four year on-site naturopathic medical degree and boards and residency, such as myself. Katrina Bogdon, ND, chooses to maintain her license in state that does recognize the practice as she has been trained.
