Gut Testing

“ALL DISEASE STARTS IN THE GUT”

- Hippocrates

Unfortunately, our modern lifestyles have led to unhealthy gut flora balance. Your microbiome is your unique fingerprint to your own health.  Our gut testing analyzes your gut at a molecular level and therefore formulates personalized food, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations.

3-MONTH NUTRITION PROGRAM & VIOME STOOL PANEL

Includes 3 months of nutrition visits and the Viome Gut Intelligence Test that provides the following individualized recommendations to fine-tune the function of their gut microbiome:

  • Foods to Avoid and Minimize
  • Superfoods
  • Supplements
  • Active Microbes
SIGN UP

3-MONTH NUTRITION PROGRAM & GENETIC PANEL

Includes 3 months of nutrition visits and the MINI DIET DX | Nutrigenomic genetic test that addresses questions such as:

  • Do you have issues with oxalate, salicylate, histamine, or sulfur metabolism?
  • Are you predisposed to heart disease or genetically high cholesterol and does that impact how much fat you should eat?
  • Would a high fat diet work well for weight loss or might it result in an increased risk for cardiovascular disease?
  • Are you able to consume diary products without increasing inflammation?

Biomarker Testing

Stool

The stool analysis evaluates Digestion/Absorption Markers, Gut Metabolic Markers, Gut Microbiology Markers offering insight in imbalances in gastrointestinal function such as: Maldigestion, Malabsorption, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Altered GI immune function, Bacterial and fungal overgrowth, and Chronic Gut Dysbiosis.

Urine

The organic acids nutritional urine analysis evaluates functional vitamin/mineral status, amino acid insufficiencies, oxidative damage and antioxidant need, neurotransmitter metabolites, mitochondrial energy production, methylation sufficiency, and bacterial and yeast overgrowth offering insight into weight issues, sleep abnormalities, depression, and chemical sensitivities.

Intestinal Permeabiltiy

The intestinal permeability intestinal blood analysis evaluates intestinal permeability (leaky gut) of the small intestine increasing the number of foreign compounds entering the bloodstream leading to auto-immune processes, offering insight into Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), food allergy, inflammatory joint disease, chronic dermatologic conditions, and Intestinal infections.

Food Allergy

The IgE Food Allergy blood analysis evaluates food causing hives or red itchy skin, stuffy or itchy nose, sneezing or itchy, teary eyes, vomiting, stomach cramps or diarrhea, angioedema or swelling, shortness of breath or wheezing, anaphylaxis and offering insight into microbiome imbalance, dermatitis, vitamin D insufficiency, indigestion, and obesity.

Celiac & Gluten Sensitivity

The Celiac & Gluten Sensitivity blood analysis evaluates an autoimmune enteropathy of the small intestine, caused by exposure to dietary gluten in genetically pre-disposed individuals generating an inflammatory reaction and mucosal injury eventually reducing the intestinal absorptive area and interferes with uptake of micronutrients, offering insight into many chronic disease ailments.

ABO Blood Typing

The ABO Blood Typing blood analysis reveals your blood type O, A, B, or AB.  The Blood Type Diet, created by naturopath Peter J. D'Adamo claims that the foods you eat react chemically with your blood and following a diet designed for your blood type, your body will digest food more efficiently, lose weight, have more energy, help prevent disease in which many patients have had positive results.

Heavy Metals and Trace Elements

The Heavy Metal and Trace Elements blood analysis identifies Lead (Pb), Aluminum (Al), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Arsenic (As), Chromium (Cr), Cooper (Cu), Zinc (Zn), Selenium (Se), Manganese (Mn) levels.  Heavy Metals inhaled or ingested through diet, medications, and the environment bioaccumulate (increase in concentration over time) and damage our vital systems of the body.

Mold

The IgE Mold Profile blood analysis measures IgE antibodies to common indoor and outdoor molds, including Candida Albicans (Yeast).  Everyone breathes in airborne mold spores, and in people with mold allergies have symptoms such as: stuffy or itchy nose, sneezing, rhinitis or sinusitis, itchy, teary eyes, conjunctivitis, cough, shortness of breath, wheezing or asthma, and skin rash or hives.

Lipid

The Lipid profile blood analysis measures your cardiovascular risk assessing: LDL, HDL, VLDL, cholesterol, and triglycerides, addressing specific metabolic areas for individuals who have a family history of heart disease, experiencing premature cardiovascular disease, have abnormal serum lipid, suffer from obesity and/or diabetes, smoke and are physically inactive.

Micronutrient

The Micronutrient blood analysis measures your nutritional status to determine personalized supplementation needs for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, digestive support, and other select nutrients.  Assessing micronutrients is a powerful diagnostic tool to guide nutritional therapies, often augmenting and speeding recovery of complex chronic conditions.

Female and Male Hormone

The Female/Male Hormone blood analysis provides information about the impact that shifting hormone levels can have in men (andropause or male menopause) and women (perimenopause/menopause), producing symptoms such as:  Weight gain, anxiety, fatigue, low sex drive and performance issues, sleep disturbances, mood instability, brain fog, and hot flashes.  Hemoglobin is an oxygen-transporting protein found inside red blood cells (RBCs).

Glucose

The Glucose blood analysis provides information about Hemoglobin A1c, or glycated hemoglobin, glycomark and Insulin.  Hemoglobin is an oxygen transporting protein found inside red blood cells (RBCs).The higher the level of glucose in the blood, the more glycated hemoglobin is formed. An A1c test may be used to screen for and diagnose diabetes or risk of developing diabetes.
