Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the functions of the immune system which can contribute to the overall condition of one’s health and diseases such as: Arthritis, Cancer, Cardiovascular disease and Diabetes, just to name a few. Even if you eat a balanced diet and take a multivitamin, there may be many reasons that your body is still deficient. Absorption, chronic illness, lifestyle or aging may all be contributing factors to a deficiency.

Food Allergy & Sensitivity Testing
“You are what you eat”. As many times as we have heard that before, there is a lot of truth to it. Sensitivities to food and food-chemicals can be involved in a wide array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems. Sensitivities are a type of inflammatory reactions that is entirely different than food allergy and most doctors are unaware they are different. If foods and additives in your diet are contributing to your illness, whatever medications you take will ultimately fail because they only mask the symptoms. They don’t treat the underlying cause of the symptoms – hidden inflammation caused by sensitivity reactions to foods and food-chemicals. This company offers testing of 30, 50, 80 and 150 different food and food chemical profiles. All of these panels include the major sensitivity screenings: gluten, wheat, soy and nut sensitivities.

Toxic & Essential Elements Testing
Gut Microbiome Testing
It is important to know the abundances of the bacteria that symbiotically live in the human gastrointestinal tract because imbalances in the gut microbiome may lead to gastrointestinal symptoms, skin conditions, autoimmune disorders, immune system imbalances, and multiple inflammatory disorders.
The test performs the most comprehensive analysis available of your intestinal microbiome ecosystem from a simple one-time stool collection. This test examines the complex and intricate relative abundance of each species or genus measured, in relation to the rest of the ecosystem, to provide a unique perspective on the gut microbiome and its connection to disease and inflammation.
The Gut Zoomer report provides you with actionable recommendations that include potential risks for:
- Intestinal permeability (SCFA producing bacteria and tight junction integrity)
- Intestinal disorders (IBS and IBD related bacteria)
- Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)- related bacteria
- Cardiovascular health (inflammation influencing and TMAO-related bacteria)
- Autoimmune health (celiac, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, etc)
- Neurological health (MS, Parkinson’s, and more)
- Liver diseases (cirrhosis, hepatitis, cholangitis, and more)
- Metabolic health (Obesity, diabetes, etc)
- Nutrition (Vitamin production, oxalate metabolism)
- Microbiome and hormone connections (Beta-glucuronidase and Beta-glucosidase)
- 67 pathogenic bacteria
- 24 Intestinal parasites
- 8 viruses
- 5 Fungal or yeast species
- 5 worm species
- 6 antibiotic resistance genes measured
Our genes are the “road map” to how our bodies work. As we age or we experience stress these genes can get turned on and effect the enzymes that regulate the biochemistry. These enzymes can run faster or slower and as you can imagine can create havoc resulting in imbalance and eventually disease. You are ½ your mom and ½ your dad and this we can never change but when we know which enzyme is being affected then we can either give you the enzyme that your body is having a hard time making or give you the bi-product that your body is having a hard time making, then we can change up to 70% of how it manifests. This is what is so exciting because with a simple saliva test we can find your road map to optimal health. Click here to read more from Dr. Heidi Hook on the MTHFR mutation.
