What Makes Us Different?
We take our time with you. You will complete comprehensive medical questionnaires. We will go over any bloodwork that you have. We will complete a detailed case history and examination. From there we may recommend additional bloodwork analysis. This will help us find out the underlying reasons for your health concerns. We will be able to determine lifestyle changes that are for you. This is not a one size fits all program. Detoxifications, supportive nutrients, and diet are based on our consult, examination, questionnaires, and bloodwork. You are unique, and your lifestyle changes are unique!
Using Integrative approaches to find the ROOT cause
Our MCN testing is quantitative detecting of intracellular and extracellular micronutrients that provide a short-term and long-term understanding of your vitamin, mineral and nutrient status. We test over 30 vitamins, minerals, and nutrients including an iron panel and omega fatty acids. This test will provide you an accurate report of your vitamin, mineral and nutrient deficiencies within your cells which you can balance once you know what your deficiencies are.
Thyroid Panel Testing
Our full thyroid panel testing does not leave out any portion of thyroid testing as many medical labs do. This provides a thorough understanding of your thyroid function. This test includes T3, Free T3, TSH, RT3, T4, Free T4, Anti-TPO, and Anti-TG as opposed to many medical labs that only include a T3 and maybe a TSH and/or T4. This test is so successful in our office in detecting underlying thyroid issues that are being missed in the medical area, because it is a FULL thyroid panel testing, not leaving out any aspect needed.
Hormone Panel Testing
Just like the thyroid panel, our hormone panel testing does not leave out any portion of hormone testing as many medical labs do. This is a full panel of either male or female hormones that allow us to look in depth for possibly underlying hormone issues such as low testosterone, high estrogen or an imbalance in fertility hormones.
Cardiac Panel Testing
Just like the thyroid and hormone panels, our testing is extensive, not leaving out portions of cardiac testing as many medical labs do. This test will provide you with a Cardiac Assessment Risk, Diabetes Type 2 Assessment Risk and overall short-term report of your healthy fat status such as Omega 3,6, and 9.
Wheat, Gluten and Leaky Gut Testing
Our wheat sensitivity panel includes gluten, celiac, non-gluten wheat and intestinal permeability testing. This test will provide understanding if you have a sensitivity to wheat, gluten, and non-gluten wheat. You also will be tested for celiac and how permeable (meaning how much your gut allows particles to leak out) your gut walls are. This test will tell you if you have a leaky gut which can be the cause of many health issues.
Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivities are your body’s response to certain foods that can occur hours to days after they are consumed. Your immune system reacts to food sensitivity with IgG and IgA immunoglobulins. We test the IgG and IgA in over 96 foods to provide you with a deeper understanding of what foods your body may be sensitive to. We also relate this to a possible leaky gut issue which can be the root cause of food sensitivities.
Food Allergy and Inhalant Allergen Testing
Food allergies are your body’s response to certain foods that can occur after they are consumed. Your immune system reacts to food sensitivity with IgE immunoglobulins. We test the IgE in over 96 foods to provide you with a deeper understanding of what foods your body may be allergic to. We also relate this to a possible leaky gut issue which can be the root cause of food sensitivities. We also test for inhalant allergens for animal dander, mold, grasses, insects, mites, trees and shrubs, and weeds.
Gut Microbiome Testing
Our Gut Microbiome testing is a health analytic testing based on the bacteria or microbiome of your body. We test over 100 healthy bacteria in your gut or should be in your gut through stool testing. This test will provide you with a thorough understanding of which good bacteria you have and which you are lacking, giving you a better understanding as to what probiotic is right for your gut. It also provides me with a deeper understanding of possible health issues that are related to deficiencies of bacteria. This test also includes yeast testing which provides an answer if you have a Candida issue. You also can go further and opt to test for fungi, parasites, and viruses in your gut.
MTHFR Genetic Testing
MTHFR mutation is a genetic mutation that is inherited by your parents. There are a few variations of this mutation which carry their own risks. Having an MTHFR mutation reduces the body’s ability to convert synthetic folic acid to active folate. As a result of this reduced ability, the metabolism and status of many nutrients, such as B12, B6, glutathione, and homocysteine, can suffer gravely, leaving severe deficiencies. Certain health issues are linked with MTHFR, as well. Knowing if you have an MTHFR mutation and if so, taking the proper nutritional measures can drastically improve health-related issues.
