Labs Offered

Micronutrient Testing

Micronutrient Panel assesses if the foods you are eating or supplements you are taking are actually being absorbed into your body and present at the cellular level. This will look at a variety of micronutrients involved in metabolism, as well as antioxidants and an immune score.

Cardiometabolic Testing

Cardio Metabolic Panel (includes lipoprotein particle test and diabetes risk panel) is a fasting blood panel that includes a Lipoprotein Particle Test (LPP). This panel looks at elements that drive stubborn weight loss and blood sugar imbalances. This is suitable for those who are pre-diabetic, diabetic, hypertensive, have elevated cholesterol levels, heart disease risk/family history, diabetic risk/family history, sugar cravings, hypo/hyperglycemia, and/or are overweight.

Food Sensitivity Testing

MRT (Mediatory Release Test) Panel determines food allergies/sensitivities with a T cell immune regulated antibody-antigen relationship of inflammation. The MRT test is successfully used to develop a customized elimination diet to address migraines, ADHD, digestive disturbances/IBS, leaky gut, autoimmune conditions, skin conditions, fibromyalgia, inflammatory conditions, difficulty with weight loss.

Genetic Testing

Nutrigenomic testing accurately identifies each patient’s genetic variations to identify sites of metabolic weakness. Abnormalities in specific polymorphisms can negatively affect many physiological and biochemical processes. Overcoming these metabolic weaknesses with the right supplements and foods allowing patients to maximize their genetic variations and maintain optimal health. Five key metabolic areas that are tested: methylation, neurotransmitter, mitochondria, detoxification, inflammation.

 

Endocrine Testing (Thyroid, Adrenals)

Adrenal testing involves cortisol and DHEA labs, which are beneficial for adrenal health assessment. These labs are good assessments of stress response, chronic fatigue, insomnia, brain fog, cravings, anxiety, and depression. Thyroid panel looks at multiple thyroid hormones and antibodies to give a clear picture of thyroid function, including inflammatory and autoimmune response of the thyroid gland. This panel is good for those with hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Hashimotos thyroiditis, Graves disease, being treated or taking medication for thyroid, family history of thyroid conditions, or currently experiencing symptoms above, as well as changes in weight.

Hormone Testing

A combination of saliva and urine tests are used to uncover hormonal imbalances. These tests help in assessing fertility, perimenopause, and hormonal shifts with aging. Cravings, brain fog, sense of vigor, mood stability, and cognitive function indicate need for hormonal testing.

Neurotransmitter Testing

Neurotransmitter Panel is a combination of saliva and urine test used to uncover neurotransmitter imbalances, including serotonin, GABA, dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and glutamate. This lab is good for an assessment of people on antidepressants or looking to reassess the efficacy of their functional interventions for depression, anxiety, or other mood instabilities.

Heavy Metals Testing

This panel measures levels of heavy metals, as well as essential elements, in urine and blood. Heavy metals are known to cause damage to the liver, kidneys and brain, as well as the cardiovascular, nervous, and endocrine systems. Essential elements are abundant, too, and only healthy when they are within optimal ranges. Nutrients like copper, iodine, magnesium, selenium, and zinc are critical for enzymes that synthesize neurotransmitters and activate hormones. This test is beneficial for people who smoke, those who are exposed to private well water or aging pipes, those who are concerned about heavy metals in foods like vegetables, rice, and seafood, those who have had mercury dental work, those who live in older homes or near an industrial area, and those who have thyroid related health issues.

Also Available:

Diet and Exercise Panel

This panel gives insights into how your body metabolizes fatty acids and carbohydrates. It will also reveal how your genetics respond to a variety of exercise, so you can optimize your activity.
