Micronutrient Testing

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. Click here to purchase your own Micronutrient kit and see what deficiencies you may have and what you can do. You can also visit the Vibrant America Laboratories website to learn more about the testing.

Cardiovascular Testing
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) commonly called heart disease refers to health issues with the heart and blood vessels. These health issues can lead to blood clots, blocked arteries, chest pain, heart attack, stroke, acute heart failure, disability and even death. For most people, heart disease is preventable and reversible with lifestyle choice changes and proper supplements. Did you know that 50% of patients who suffer from a heart attack have normal LDL (“bad” cholesterol levels) or that 1 in 3 Americans suffer from some sort of cardiovascular disease? Knowing the information before any issues arise, can save your life. Click here to purchase your own cardiovascular test kit. You can also visit the PULS website to learn more.
Hormone & Neurotransmitter Testing
Hormones are powerful molecules essential for maintaining physical and mental health. Often we think of estrogen as being a female hormone, and testosterone as being a male hormone. But men AND women make both, plus several more that need to be in balance for optimum health. An imbalance of any one hormone can throw your physical and mental health out of balance, causing aggravating and even serious health problems. Unbalanced hormones can cause such symptoms as insomnia, depression, mood swings, night sweats, low or no sex drive, heart health, mental clarity and focus and many more. Your hormones are like your fingerprints and in order to achieve optimal health, you need to know what your specific imbalances are. Testing through saliva rather than through blood offers a much more of a clearer picture of how your hormones fluctuate throughout a day, rather than just one moment in time. Click here to purchase a saliva or urine hormone kit to find out if you have imbalances. You can visit the Labrix Clinical Services to learn more about saliva testing for neurotransmitters of DUTCH to learn more about the dried urine testing for hormone balancing.
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
As humans are exposed to millions of toxins everyday. Whether it is in the food we eat, the lotions we put on our skin, metals in our fillings or even the air we breathe, toxins are everywhere. Click here to learn more.
Gut Microbiome Testing
The gut microbiome resides in your large intestine and is host to more than 1000 species of bacteria that perform certain important functions from shaping the immune system to influencing metabolism of nutrients to fortifying the intestinal mucosal barrier (gut barrier).

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
Genomic Testing

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.
