Gastro-Intestinal Microbial Assay
Symptoms of gut imbalance could present as digestive distress such as bloating, gas and constipation or mental health concerns like anxiety and depression. Dysbiosis (gut imbalance) can produce autoimmune and inflammation-related symptoms and changes to skin, sleep, weight and energy levels.
Your gut truly impacts every aspect of your health. It acts as an internal barrier to the external world, with at least 70% of your immune system in or around your gut. It is often called the second brain due to a direct pathway to your brain via the vagus nerve, and has a role in nutrient absorption, detoxification, metabolism and hormone and neurotransmitter production.
This stool test can uncover parasites, protozoa, overall gut dysbiosis, H.pylori, candida, protozoa, SigA levels and calprotectin so that a prescriptive plan can be developed to restore your gut to optimum efficiency.
DUTCH Complete Hormone Panel
Imbalances in the endocrine system may be the cause of concerns including metabolic disfunction, inflammation, fatigue and/or insomnia, mood swings, poor sex drive, high blood pressure and blood sugar abnormalities.
The DUTCH Complete Hormone panel offers the most comprehensive profile of reproductive and adrenal hormones, along with their metabolites. Taken through multiple urine samples throughout the day, this test reveals the diurnal pattern of free cortisol, along with melatonin (6-OHMS), 8-OHdG, and six organic acids. Included are dhea, progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, cortisol and melatonin.
Heavy Metal & Mineral Analysis
Minerals are the sparkplugs of your body, and necessary for hundreds of functions and enzymatic reactions, including blood sugar, adrenal and thyroid sufficiency along with your metabolic rate.
Just a small sample of hair can uncover the heavy metal load on your body and allows us to examine the ratios of these minerals, presenting a three-month window into how well key systems in your body are functioning and the best course of action to improve performance.
Responsible for protecting you against infections, IgG (Immunoglobulin G) is the most common type of antibody in your blood, with the body retaining a catalog of IgG antibodies that can be rapidly reproduced whenever exposed to the same antigen. Through a finger prick test, our food sensitivity panel looks at IgG reactions for 94 food items and candida to inform you of those foods that might be causing an adverse reaction in the body, and help us develop a personalized nutrition plan based on your results.
A comprehensive wellness panel, taken via a blood test, offers further insight into how your body is operating and can help illuminate any medical concerns raised in the other testing. Thyroid function, inflammatory markers and cholesterol are all included, providing a current baseline for where there is room to level up.
Biomarkers tested include:
