Chronic illness or conditions can be very complex. What seems like a simple issue can end up in a web of symptoms where the root cause is difficult to find.
The client intake and functional testing are key to understanding specific imbalances within the body. Testing reduces frustration and eliminates second-guessing. We want to test, not guess! Here are my top four tests (not exclusive).
Test kit prices are subject to change and are only offered with program packages. A no-cost ten-minute discovery call will provide more detail.
Dutch (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) Complete Test
The DUTCH Complete test is processed by Precision Analytics. The company describes it as an advanced hormone test developed to improve on available hormone testing options. Dutch offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones and associated metabolites. Additionally, the daily pattern of free cortisol is included, along with melatonin and six organic acids. This unique combination of clinical information is not available by any other method.
The Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides information about the body’s
biochemical balance by measuring metabolic byproducts in urine.
The 76 metabolites, including creatinine, detected in the OAT can indicate vitamin and hormone metabolism, energy cycle function, intestinal wall integrity, neurotransmitter metabolites, and muscle function.
In our modern world, with ever-increasing pollution levels, the presence of toxic metals in the environment is constantly growing. Chemical products, fertilizers, industrial paint, building materials, fish, silver dental fillings, and vaccines are just some of the sources of heavy metals in everyday life.
Toxic metals may normally be present in the body in very low levels, but acute or continuous exposure, as well as metabolic abnormalities can cause accumulation of heavy metals in body tissues, and subsequently, in the brain.
Many symptoms of heavy metal poisoning are identical to symptoms of neurological and psychiatric disorders; therefore, it is difficult, if not impossible to identify their cause without expert laboratory testing. Test results frequently show high heavy metal levels coupled with low mineral levels in people with developmental and neurological disorders and chronic fatigue, as well as otherwise healthy individuals who do not feel well.
Many chronic disorders result from digestive problems and inadequate nutrient absorption. Even with a very complete and balanced diet, nutrients have to be properly digested to transport vitamins to different parts of the body. Proper gastrointestinal functioning also eliminates toxic molecules, microbes, and undigested food particles from the body, which helps prevent infections, toxic reactions, allergies, and other health problems.
