Adrenal Testing (Adrenal Stress Index)
An abnormal adrenal function can cause decreased energy, insomnia,
poor memory, diminished bone density, poor immune system (frequent cold/flu), abnormal thyroid function, weight concerns, food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, irritability and chronic muscle and joint pain. This is not a blood draw, but a simple non-invasive 24-h. saliva test that maps your adrenal rhythm.
Chemical Toxicity Assessment
Acute or chronic exposure to synthetic chemicals can have a long term effect on all body systems, especially immune, neurological and digestive health. Identification and elimination of these chemicals can decrease or reverse many symptoms and increase your well being. Some of the following tests can be used in the assessment:
• Heavy metal testing
• Solvent and pesticide testing
• Comprehensive liver detox panel
Comprehensive Cardiovascular Test (Advanced Lipid Profile)
Almost half of all heart attacks occur in people with “normal” total cholesterol levels. We use this state-of-the-art cardiovascular assessment test to increase detection of at-risk patients. A standard lipid panel includes HDL, LDL, total cholesterol, HDL/LDL ratios, and triglycerides. In addition, more advanced markers are used to increase detection of at-risk patients: homocysteine, lipoprotein (a), Apo A1, Apo B, fibrinogen and C-reactive protein. With this information, we can custom design a prevention program to improve your quality of life.
Coronary Calcium Score
We refer out to have an image of your heart taken to evaluate percentage of arterial calcification correlated with advanced cardiovascular risk.
Food Allergy / Sensitivity Test
This blood tests looks for possible reactions to 115 common foods. This lab test is an IgG immune sensitivity test. Food allergies can be an underlying cause to many chronic health conditions including irritable bowel syndrome, chronic stomach and intestinal pain, abdominal cramps, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, just to name a few.
Female Hormone Panel
Many women suffer from hormonal imbalances. A simple non-invasive saliva test collected throughout the menstrual cycle allows us to view your profile of estrogen and progesterone, taking the guess work out of your menstrual cycle. We utilize this information to design a customized treatment plan to relieve hormone imbalances, and/or PMS related symptoms. Other panels are available using blood and/or urine.
Combination of stool, blood and saliva tests for parasites, yeast, bacteria and other causes of digestive dysfunction.
Individualized Fasting Amino Acid Profile
Amino acids are the back bone to our neurotransmitters, hormones, enzymes, and all connective tissue. This test will allow the doctors to customize an amino acid formula specific for your biochemistry.
Neurotransmitter and endocrine imbalance can contribute to depression, anxiety, fatigue, and a host of other symptoms. This simple urine and saliva test can determine your levels of serotonin, GABA, dopamine, epinephrine, and other neurotransmitters.
Standard Metabolic Panel
A general health screening test that typically includes liver enzymes, kidney function, electrolytes, red and white blood cells, anemia, vitamin D, cholesterol and glucose. This is usually done as a fasting test.
Comprehensive panel that tests TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), T3, T4, and rT3. We also test TPO (anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies) and ATG (anti-thyroglobulin) in order to rule out autoimmune thyroid disease, such as Hashimoto’s and Graves disease.
SpectraCell Micronutrient Test
This panel is used to test white blood cells for vitamin and mineral stores. Based on the lab results, we can come up with a treatment plan to correct nutrient imbalances.
