Food Sensitivity Testing:Ninety six different foods are generally tested. These antibodies that occur after ingestion of certain foods can lead to either immediate symptoms (airway congestion, itchy watery eyes, runny nose, skin reactions, etc) or delayed symptoms (headaches, asthma, digestive disturbances, frequent infections, skin conditions, joint problems, swelling, etc).
Hair or Urine Element Analysis:this test uses a hair or urine sample to detect toxins and heavy metals in the body. Also measures beneficial elements such as iron and copper.
Salivary Hormone Testing:used to uncover hormone imbalances by measuring the amount of bio-available hormones in your tissues, rather than how much is floating around in your blood. Can test stress hormones (cortisol and DHEAS), as well as male/female hormones (estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, hormone ratios, DHEAS)
Estrogen Metabolism Ratio: looks at how estrogen is being broken down by your body. Maintaining proper balance of estrogen metabolites in your body is essential for good health, and knowing the metabolite levels in your body can give insight on breast cancer risk, as well as gynecological conditions.
Urinary Thyroid Test:since urine is collected over a 24 hour period, this test gives an idea of how the thyroid gland functions over a span of time, whereas thyroid blood test is a measure of function at a particular moment. Tests urinary T3, T4 and selenium (a cofactor necessary for thyroid function)
Essential Fatty Acid Test:measures the balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. Balancing this ratio can lead to improvements in diseases associated with inflammation such as cancer, arthritis, heart disease, asthma, and diabetes
