Advanced Laboratory Testing

Testing plays an important role in diagnosis. It offers an objective view of our health functions. We offer more advanced testing in addition to the regular day-to-day testing offered by conventional medical doctors . This gives us further insight into our patients’ health.

Food Sensitivities testing

Food sensitivities are inflammatory responses of the immune system triggered by food allergens. Unlike food allergies, the symptoms of a food sensitivity often occur hours or even days after exposure, making it difficult to pinpoint the specific offending food(s). This delayed reaction is what causes people to suffer from food sensitivities unaware and blame things like aging for their chronic symptoms.

Testing for food sensitivities streamlines the process of identifying triggering foods, providing clear evidence and guidance to begin the healing process and start improving symptoms.

Conditions & Symptoms Commonly Associated With Food Sensitivity

  • Brain Fog
  • Bloating
  • Weight Gain
  • Mood Swings
  • Joint Pain/Inflammation
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Bronchitis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Eczema
  • Migraines
  • GI distress
  • Stomach pain
  • Acne
  • Autism
  • Sinus issues
  • Depression

Saliva testing

Adrenal Panel/Cortisol curve

  • Salivary cortisol is a very sensitive measure of response to stress. The Adrenal Panel measures four cortisols throughout the day, as well as morning DHEAS. A Cortisol Curve graphs four diurnal cortisol points, without a morning DHEAS.

Female Panel

  • Measures cortisol, DHEAS, estradiol, progesterone and testosterone in saliva. The custom interpretation provided with every report offers insights into how hormone imbalances may contribute to symptoms.

Male Panel

  • Measures cortisol, DHEAs, estradiol and testosterone in saliva. The custom interpretation provided with every report offers insights into how hormone imbalances may be contributing to male symptoms.

Environmental testing

Hair element analysis

  • Reports nutrient status and toxic element exposure over time. The interpretation provided assesses the distribution patterns of the elements explains likely causes.

Digestion testing

GI Digestive stool testing

  • Assess Gut Health, GI Microbiome and Digestion Function
  • It helps to investigate the cause of various symptoms such as nutrient malabsorption, bloating, gas, stomach and abdominal pain.

SIBO breath test

  • Assess if there is any bacteria over-growth in the small intestine
  • Bacteria overgrowth in the small intestine often causes gas and bloating, constipation/diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, reflux, rashes, food allergies
  • SIBO Breath Test can be used to diagnose whether the patient has hydrogen or methane SIBO

Nutrition profile

  • Assess markers to provide insights into nutritional deficiencies and imbalances

Organic Acids testing

  • Organic Acids Profile measures how well the body is obtaining and utilizing nutrients.
