Great program

Thanks for such great podcasts!
Just wondering if you could do a quick podcast on what to do when a naturopath wants very specific bloods to be ordered for a patient, but you don’t deem it to be clinically necessary? What’s our role/professional obligation to the natropath/patient?
Thanks!

Interesting topics but poor quality audio

Audio really needs improvement. I want to listen to the podcast but am limited by the audio quality which makes it very difficult to hear what the guests are saying.
