Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  How much does it cost?

A: Please see our pricing page for a full description of features and prices.

Q:  How do I know it's worth it?

A:  Everyone, healthy or not, will learn a great deal from their report. By looking at the sample (a real report that was sent out, with just the name changed), you can decide whether you would like one.  Your report would of course be based entirely on your responses and notes.  Click here to see what others have said.

Q:  How are you different from any other service?

A:  There are a few other companies offering 'diagnosis' systems, and some of them are even free.  The Analyst™ is fundamentally different to all of them in at least one of the following ways:

  • The Analyst™ looks at health from a natural - naturopathic - point of view.  Allopathic treatments are mentioned only in cases where there simply is no effective alternative treatment.
  • Free systems are invariably those offered by companies trying to sell you their product(s).  A few questions are asked and you receive a recommendation for what to buy.  The Analyst™ is not an advertizing gimmick: you receive impartial advice, even about conditions that no product will cure.
  • Most systems lack depth: few ask more than 100 questions.  This is clearly insufficient to cover the hundreds of signs and symptoms that people can and do have.
  • Some systems start by asking you "What symptoms do you have?", assuming that you know exactly what qualifies as a symptom, and that all symptoms are obvious to you.  The Analyst™ makes no such assumptions: you will be asked all manner of unusual questions because, taken together, these small pieces of information make up the complex puzzle that is your current state of health.

    As a simple example, would you mention to your doctor that you have small bumps on the backs of your arms, or that you have cracked callouses on your heels? (These are both symptoms of vitamin A deficiency.)

Q:  I'm concerned about giving out personal information.

A:  We understand that sending personal information into the electronic ether can be of some concern.  There is no need to provide us with a real name, nor do we need any contact information besides your e-mail address, which can be anonymous - for example a Yahoo address. In other words, we do not have to have any idea of who you are.

Q:  How secure is the information that I provide?

A:  Your answers are stored in a secure database. We can access your answers for purposes of providing a report to you. You create a userID and password that gives you access to your personal questionnaire. Afterwards, you can return to change your answers and notes if needed by logging in. No one else outside our office has access to this and we never provide any information to any other party. At the time you start the questionnaire, we provide you with a reminder copy of your userID and password by automated email. This email is the only place that the password exists in an unencrypted form. We provide this because customers sometimes forget their login information.

We can access your answers. Others can't. Your answers are automatically deleted from the system after 3 months if you do not order a report. If you do order a report, we generally keep you answers so that if you want a refreshed version of the report sometime in the future you won't have to start from scratch.

Q:  Can all of the personal information I provide be deleted?

A:  Yes. At any time in the process, either before you receive a report or afterwards, all you have to do is request for everything to be deleted. We will then do just that and inform you by email. The downside to this is that if you change your mind and want to continue, you will have to start all over again. And, if you lose your report, once the deletion has been completed from our database, we cannot sent you a replacement copy.

In other words, if you ask us to do so, we will completely delete your answers, notes, user/password record, and report immediately. We will also confirm that your request is about to take place by email. We will not be capable of contacting you again after the deletion, as there will be no record of your email address.

Q:  Can I see what the questionnaire looks like?

A:  Click here to see the contents of the questionnaire.

Q:  But there are so many questions!

A:  The human body is extremely complex; there are thousands of possible conditions and hundreds of related signs and symptoms. The Analyst™ does far more than simply connect a few obvious symptoms to a few common conditions.

Q:  What types of problem can The Analyst™ indicate?

A:  Click here to see some of the more common conditions that are dealt with.  Your report will include up-to-date information not only on what we uncover but also about conditions already known to you.

Q:  Am I being evaluated by a doctor or a computer?

A:  Both.  The Analyst™ is a computer system that combines your responses to the questionnaire with its database to produce a diagnosis.  One of our doctors reads the additional notes that you have entered and makes any necessary adjustments based on this additional information.

Q:  What do the results look like?

A:  Click here to see a sample report.  Your report can be in HTML or PDF format, and password-protected to prevent others reading it.

Q:  Whom do I contact if I have questions about my report?

A:  The purpose of this report is to guide you with its diagnostic suggestions into selecting the correct remedies.  Although we are at this time unable to answer individual questions, we do provide a list of recommended naturopaths by region.

Q:  Whom do I contact if I have problems with the web site?

A:  Send an e-mail with a detailed description of your problem to
