Special Tests

 

 

 

Bone Health Markers

A specialized panel of tests provides information about bone markers that are a reflection of your bone health. It includes markers such as DpD (Bone marker), Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Cortisol and more.

Breast And Prostate Cancer Risk Test

A new urine test looking for the ratio of 2-hydroxyestrone (20HE1) to 16-alpha- hydroxyestrone (16OHE1), can help assess your risk for both breast as well as prostate cancer. If these run in your family, or you are currently at risk, this test can be useful both to establish your risk as well as to monitor improvements in treatments designed to minimize your risks.

Environmental Allergy Testing

We provide on-site inexpensive tests to rule out allergies to cats, dogs, mites, dust, trees, pollen, grasses and more. This test does not involve needles or skin prick tests. Instead, a concentrated allergen is applied to the skin and after a period of observation, a highly specific skin reaction may occur. This test is paired with
sublingual immunotherapy, compounded remedies prepared according to each individuals allergic profile (as determined by the allergy test). These drops are taken daily under the tongue. Patients report a dramatic 70% improvement in allergy symptoms over time, and an even greater reduction of reliance on anti-histamines.

Food Allergy Testing

Food allergy tests provided by conventional allergists usually screen for IgE-mediated allergies. Such allergies mostly occur shortly after being exposed to the offending food and result in obvious symptoms such as hives, acute asthma and swelling. However, other allergies exist that are called Delayed Onset Hypersensitivity
Reactions. These often cause more low-grade and delayed reactions that can take hours or days and involve any site or organ system in the body. Because of this delay, we can be unaware of the link between the foods we are eating and chronic health issues such as rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, migraines, anxiety, eczema, psoriasis, and more.

Gastrointestinal Health Panels

We provide an impressive array of specialized gastrointestinal health panels to help provide more specific treatment protocols to those suffering from chronic and undiagnosed digestive problems. These tests are not available through ordinary conventional medicine. They provide information about parasites, ova, yeast overgrowth, fungal infections, flora imbalances, and more. We also provide on-site testing for Celiac disease. Visit www.greatplainslaboratory.com and/or www.doctorsdata.com for more informatio

Genetic Testing

We are all genetically unique and this will influence how we metabolize different foods, what type of personality we have, how susceptible we are to heart disease and so on. Younique Genomics allows you to understand your genetic signature so you can take preventative measures to assist your body in areas where you are genetically weak.  I did this test myself and found out I have one week detoxification pathway. I would never have known this otherwise.

 

Neurotransmitter Testing

Very specialized neurotransmitter tests are offered by NEUROSCIENCE that can be helpful to identify imbalances for diseases such as autism, mental disorders, Parkinson’s Disease, depression, ADHD, addictive behaviors, schizophrenia, sleep disorders, anxiety, seizures, and more. Some of the hormones included are as follows: epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine, serotonin, 5-HIAA, glycine, taurine, GABA, glutamate, histamine. Visit www.neuroscienceinc.com for more information.

Sex Hormone Testing

Specialized saliva and/or urine tests are available to provide detailed understanding of a wide range of hormones. Theses tests can be helpful for many issues such as menopause, prostate disease, breast cancer risk, thyroid disease, infertility and more. For more information about hormone testing, visit www.rmalab.com and/or www.neuroscience.com.

Stress Tests

Your adrenal glands (sometimes referred to as stress glands) are extremely important for many functions such as energy production, muscle and joint functioning, bone health, immune health, sleep quality, skin regeneration, thyroid functioning, stress management, blood pressure and more. If you are chronically stressed, your adrenal glands may not be functioning properly, and this can affect many areas of your health. A specialized saliva panel can help identify poor adrenal gland functioning. This can be helpful for many chronic diseases such as autoimmune diseases, chronic pain and inflammation, insomnia, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and more.

Thyroid Panels

Thyroid problems often go undetected by mainstream medicine due to the limitations of blood tests typically used. The thyroid can affect everything from your utilization of vitamins to sexual functioning and sleep. Despite what your blood tests might say, if you are experiencing fatigue, dry hair and skin, hoarse voice, cold intolerance, facial swelling, constipation, weight gain and/or excessive menstrual flow, you may have undiagnosed hypothyroidism. Or, if you are experiencing nervousness, anxiety, fatigue, palpitations, weight loss, increased sweating, loose or frequent bowel movements and/or sleep disturbances, you may have hyperthyroidism. The thyroid tests can involve the use of saliva, urine, blood and/or temperature monitoring to detect imbalances.

Toxicity Tests

Without us knowing it, many modern day chronic health issues are the effect of an insidious, so low-level, long-term exposure, to hundreds of toxins released into our air, land and water every year. In response to this,  many labs offer highly specialized tests to identify heavy metals (such as mercury, lead and cadmium) as well as common occupational, household and cosmetic chemicals (such as parabens, aromatic solvents and phthalates). The effects are so widespread on our organ systems that they virtually can play a role in any health issue, including chronic allergies, cancer, infertility, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and more.

Toxins can be tested by ordinary blood tests. However, these are not very useful to detect chronic exposure or real body burden (versus acute exposure). . Hair analysis is a non-invasive way of testing and offers some insight into mineral and heavy metal profiles. Most accurate is more specialized urine tests performed while taking an oral chelating agent that can pull heavy metals out of your tissues, and therefore measure your total body burden more accurately.
