At-Home Lab Testing
Functional lab testing is a great tool to help get to the underly root/cause of dis-ease. Wether it be gut permeability, food sensitivities, hormone imbalances, adrenal fatigue, and/or dysbiosis the results from these test not only help to validated what you are currently feeling/ experiencing but also provide information in order to fully individualize a supplement and life style protocol to help you rebalance your whole body and return to a life full of health and vitality.

HPA Stress Profile: This test helps us evaluate the level of stress at four different periods of the day, how it may be affecting your metabolism and hormones, sleep, and the health of your gut. It includes Cortisol, DHEA-S, Estradiol, Estriol, Estrone, Melatonin, Progesterone, Testosterone, and Secretory IgA. Secretory IgA can help us understand the state of the immune system of our gut and how stress might be impacting us. This test is taken over the course of a day with four separate saliva samples.
GI Screen:This is for those with chronic illness or digestive problems that you have not had success understanding or alleviating. It includes Ova & Parasites, Antigens of Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium parvum, Helicobacter Pylori, Bacterial cultures, Yeast cultures, and Occult blood. It is taken with stool samples over the course of 3 days.
Food Sensitivity Mediator Release Test (MRT):This test is a functional measurement of diet-induced sensitivities. It helps to identify foods and food chemicals that are causing an increased inflammatory response when eaten. It is taken via a simple blood draw and will identify food sensitivities on a scale of 1-3. This test benefits anyone suffering with an autoimmune or chronic disease as well as those unable to lose weight.
Epigenetics: Using your Ancestry.com or 23 and Me DNA results we can identifies common genetic variations known as Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) that are clinically relevant and nutritionally actionable. This unique platform makes it easy to TEST, TRANSLATE and TARGET SNPs with the right individualized nutritional and supplemental support.
