Blood Testing

  • Micro Nutrient Testing

  • CardioMetabolic

  • Complete Hormone Panel

  • Complete Thyroid Panel 

  • Genetic Testing

Stool Test: Test evaluates digestion, absorption, gut flora, and the colonic environment and evaluates for parasites using microscopic evaluation and EIA testing. This test is indicated for all GI problems. It measures inflammation in the gut, runs a ensitivity panel for treating pathogenic flora, exocrine pancreatic function, and yeast. It is what is says, very comprehensive. 

Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your  white blood cells.  These tests allow your nutritional assessment for a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders and metabolic disorders.

Your cellular metabolism and your cardiovascular system (heart and blood vessels) are very intricately linked.  For various reasons – not just age – our metabolism changes.  Our personal chemistry controls these changes and they can be measured in SpectraCell’s CardioMetabolic panel, which covers the three main areas of keeping a healthy metabolic profile your whole life: Glycemic Control, Lipid Profile, and Vascular Inflammation. 

Comprehensive male and female hormone panels that reveal the overall state of hormonal balance in a patient.  Like nutrients, hormones influence all aspects of health and disease - mood, sleep, metabolism, immunity, heart health and appearance.  An imbalance of one hormone can initiate cascade of events that alters other hormones, so a comprehensive look at hormone status is key.

 

Thyroid hormones directly regulate every cell in our body as most basic functions like metabolism, emotions and thinking. We also test several proteins that affect thyroid function as well as antibodies to thyroid which can detect autoimmunity (when the immune system attacks healthy tissue) and your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.

Genetic Testing: How well are you aging? Are you at risk for blood clots, heart attack, or cardio vascular disease? How well are you metabolizing cholesterol and triglycerides? How well are you metabolizing amino acids?
