Eating a heart - healthy diet and maintaining a heart-healthy weight are vital to the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Our individualized Nutrition counseling and management program provide the support, education and guidance people need to help get healthy foods into their busy schedules, fine-tune eating habits and make exercise a regular part of their lives.
Some of the diagnostic testing we utilize include:
1 - Micronutrient testing by SpectraCell Lab
An innovative assessment of a patient’s intracellular nutritional status. 34 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants are evaluated.
Overwhelming scientific evidence confirms that vitamin deficiencies are associated with disease processes and the overall condition of one’s health. Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune function and contribute to chronic degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
SpectraCell’s micronutrient testing offers a unique means to scientifically assess the intracellular requirements of micronutrients that play an important role in overall health and wellness. The tests measure the biochemical function of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.
2 - Neurotransmitter and hormone testing
Salivary Hormone Testing
Saliva testing is an easy and noninvasive way of assessing the patients hormone status and balancing needs....
Hormones are powerful molecules essential for maintaining physical and mental health. We frequently 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
Urinary Neurotransmitter Testing
Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that facilitate the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next across a synapse. Neurotransmitters work with receptors in the brain to influence and regulate a wide range of processes such as mental performance, emotions, pain response and energy levels. Functioning primarily in the Central Nervous System (CNS), neurotransmitters are the brain’s chemical messengers, facilitating communication among the body’s glands, organs, and muscles. Numerous clinical studies have shown that inadequate neurotransmitter function has a profound influence on overall health and well-being. In fact, imbalances in certain neurotransmitters are associated with most of the prevalent symptoms and conditions seen in practitioner offices today.
- Mood disorders; depression, anxiety
- Adrenal dysfunction; fatigue, insomnia
- Loss of mental focus; ADD, ADHD, cognitive fog
- Addiction and dependency
- Hormonal imbalances; E2 dominance, E2 deficiency, low androgens
- Loss of appetite control; insulin resistance
3 - Delayed Allergy and hypersensitivity Testing
Revolutionary blood tests that analyze the lymphocytes, the body’s long lived, memory-carrying white blood cells that indicate health and disease in the body.
The only tests that measure all three types of delayed sensitivity reactions through lymphocyte activation:
- Reactive antibody (IgA, IgM, and IgG)
- Immune complexes
- T cell direct activation
This test can measure against over 480 substances, foods, food additives, food coloring, medicinal herbs, chemicals, preservatives and more.
