Organic Acids

Organic acids are a broad class of compounds formed during fundamental metabolic processes in the body. Metabolic reactions produce these compounds from the digestion of dietary protein, fat and carbohydrates. The resulting organic acids are used by the body to generate cellular energy and provide many of the building blocks necessary for cell function. Urinary organic acid measurement offers a functional assessment of nutrient status.  The Organic Acid test measures markers of malabsorption, mitochondrial health, detoxification, neurotransmitters and more. This urine test is beneficial for anyone with mood disorders, mitochondrial dysfunctions, fatigue, chronic stress, inflammation, cardiovascular disease, neurocognitive decline, diabetes, cancer, anorexia and many others.

Glyphosate

Glyphosate is the world’s most widely produced herbicide and is the primary toxic chemical in Roundup, as well as in many other herbicides. In addition, it is a broad-spectrum herbicide that is used in more than 700 different products from agriculture and forestry to home use. The enzymes of many bacteria are also susceptible to inhibition by this chemical, thus altering the flora (microbiome) of many animals.  Recent studies have discovered glyphosate exposure to be a cause of many chronic health problems. It can enter the body by direct absorption through the skin, by eating foods treated with glyphosate or by drinking water contaminated with glyphosate.  This urine test is beneficial for anyone who has unexplained kidney disease, a neurodegenerative disorder, autism, cardiovascular disease, cancer or known exposure to glyphosate such as working on a farm, or for those who simply want to know their glyphosate levels.

Metal Sensitivity

Metal allergies can be a cause of significant health problems.  People with metal hypersensitivity may have numerous symptoms associated with an overactive immune system, including chronic fatigue, joint and muscle pain, cognitive impairment, depression, headaches, fibromyalgia and skin rashes. The MELISA test is the lymphocyte transformation test (LTT) that has been modified for improved detection of metal sensitivities. It is a scientifically proven and clinically validated test that detects type-IV allergy to multiple metals, such as mercury, gold, palladium and titanium. Exposure to metals in dental fillings and crowns, surgical implants, joint prostheses and environmental pollutants can lead to health problems in sensitive individuals (if they cause an allergic reaction). MELISA can identify the individuals who may suffer side effects from metal exposure. The test indicates which metals the immune system will tolerate and which will cause an immune reaction. This information may be useful prior to surgery or to dental work to establish the optimal type of materials the body will tolerate.  This blood test is beneficial to anyone who has metal implants and suspects adverse health effects from them.

Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are substances produced by mold.  Mycotoxin exposure can come from both dietary and environmental sources. Dietary sources include spoiled food and environmental sources include living or working in water-damaged buildings, airborne or physical contact with outdoor molds, and airborne dust in buildings containing mold spores. Mycotoxin symptoms are often general or vague and difficult to associate with a diagnosis or disease state, which means they may be overlooked during clinical assessments.  Individuals with impaired immune responses or higher levels of oxidative stress are at higher risk.  Associated symptoms include fatigue and weakness, chronic burning in the throat and nasal passages, coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath, loss of balance, depression and/or anxiety, skin rashes, headache and/or light sensitivity, heightened sensitivity to chemicals and foods, irregular heartbeat, morning stiffness and/or joint pain, disorientation and/or dizziness, static shocks or metallic taste in the mouth and many more seemingly unrelated symptoms.  This blood test is beneficial for anyone who has any of these symptoms and who would like to rule out mold toxicity as a cause.

TruAge

Biomarkers of aging are measurements that could predict functional capacity at some later age better than chronological age. In other words, biomarkers of aging would give the true "biological age", which may be different from the chronological age based on a person's birthdate. There are many ways you can measure your biological age, but the epigenetic clock is the most accurate and precise biological age predictor.  It is able to predict all-cause mortality independent of several risk factors such as age, body mass index (BMI), education, physical activity, alcohol use, smoking and certain conditions.  Discover your biological age, make lifestyle modifications as needed, then check it a couple of times a year to monitor improvements. You can't do anything about your chronological age, but it might be possible to turn back the clock on biological age! This blood test is beneficial to those interested in knowing their true biological ages.

Environmental Toxins

Environmental toxins, technically called toxicants, are harmful man-made substances such as pesticides that are introduced into the environment which, when absorbed, inhaled or ingested, can cause acute or chronic toxic overload, which may manifest in a variety of biological organ, tissue and cellular-level systems. Environmental toxins are cancer-causing chemicals and endocrine disruptors, both human-made and naturally occurring. Susceptibility to toxic overload varies from person to person and can be affected by a variety of factors including genetics, environment, diet, liver and kidney health, microbiome composition and diversity, age, amount of fat a person has, gender, lifestyle and immune system health. Screening patients with multiple chronic inflammatory symptoms, resistance to weight loss and signs of excessive total toxic load is important to detecting unknown chemical exposure in daily products, foods and environment.  This urine test is beneficial for those interested in having a better understanding of their toxic burden.

 

 

Heavy Metals

Heavy metal toxicity is thought to affect over 1 million individuals annually, including children. Populations at greater risk of heavy metal toxicity include developing fetuses, children and the immunocompromised, as well as individuals with impaired liver function and reduced antioxidant activity.  Heavy metals are present in all regions of the United States, and can accumulate in air, soil and drinking or ground water sources in and around concentrated sources of heavy metals from industrial production or pollution, and may be the root cause of common neurological disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune diseases and disorders associated with increased oxidative stress and cellular dysfunction. Some professions and hobbies are at greater risk of heavy metal toxicity, including fuel, munitions, painting, rubber manufacturing, industrial smelting, mining, photographic processing, agriculture, semiconductors, welding and waste or radioactive waste disposal sites. Heavy metal toxicity is under-represented as a root cause of illness and disease in humans and can affect virtually all biological systems within the human body.  This urine test is beneficial for those who have symptoms that might be related to heavy metal toxicity or those who simply want to know if they have excess heavy metals in their system.

 

 

Micronutrient Panel

Micronutrients play an important role in energy production, hemoglobin synthesis, maintenance of bone health, adequate immune function and protection of the body against oxidative stress and cellular damage. Micronutrients include vitamins, minerals, co-factors, amino acids, metabolites, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. These nutrients are found in small amounts in foods and are essential for human health. The following symptoms, diagnoses or risk factors may be associated with micronutrient deficiency:  advanced age, stress, fatigue, psychiatric or mood disorders, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, skin conditions, arthritis, immune systems problems, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), digestive disorders such as Crohn's or celiac disease, long-term prescription use, obesity, intense athletic training and more. This blood test is beneficial for anyone has any of these symptoms or condition or anyone who simply wants detailed information about his/her micronutrient status.

 

 

Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are substances produced by mold.  Mycotoxin exposure can come from both dietary and environmental sources. Dietary sources include spoiled food and environmental sources include living or working in water-damaged buildings, airborne or physical contact with outdoor molds and airborne dust in buildings containing mold spores. Mycotoxin symptoms are often general or vague and difficult to associate with a diagnosis or disease state, and therefore may be overlooked during clinical assessments.  Individuals most at risk for mycotoxin exposure include those who live or work in older buildings, those who have known exposure to water-damaged buildings and those with impaired immune responses or higher levels of oxidative stress.  Associated symptoms include fatigue and weakness, chronic burning in the throat and nasal passages, coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath, loss of balance, depression and/or anxiety, skin rashes, headache and/or light sensitivity, heightened sensitivity to chemicals and foods, irregular heartbeat, morning stiffness and/or joint pain, disorientation and/or dizziness, static shocks or metallic taste in the mouth and many more seemingly unrelated symptoms.  This urine test is beneficial for anyone who has any of these symptoms and who would like to rule out mold toxicity as a cause.

 

 

Tickborne Disease

Tickborne diseases such as Lyme Disease can be acquired throughout the United States from a variety of ticks, which carry and pass on different microorganisms to humans and animals. Tickborne illnesses have more than doubled in the past 13 years. Symptoms may be generic and have overlap with other conditions and therefore, be difficult to associate with a tickborne disease.  Associated symptoms include fever and/or chills, headache, Bell’s palsy, neck stiffness, fatigue, muscle or joint aches/pains, gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, change in cognitive or psychological status, loss of appetite, weight loss, anemia, enlarged, tender lymph nodes, rash, painful abdomen, dizziness or shortness of breath or numbness or weakness in the arms and legs.  This blood test is beneficial for anyone who has any of these symptoms and who would like to rule out tickborne disease as a cause.

 

 

Wheat Zoomer

Wheat is made up of many components--gluten being only one of them.  This test reveals a person's sensitivity to every single component of wheat and also diagnoses the presence of leaky gut (i.e., increased intestinal permeability.) If you have suspected gluten or wheat sensitivity, suspected leaky gut syndrome, gastrointestinal inflammation (diarrhea or constipation, cramping, nausea, discomfort after eating), headaches, including migraines, neurological symptoms (memory loss, balance problems, numbness, tingling, anxiety), skin rashes, joint pain, autoimmune conditions, low vitamin D status, multiple food sensitivities, or excessive fatigue after meals, this blood test would be beneficial for you.
