Male and Female Hormone Testing
Comprehensive thyroid and hormone testing provide an in-depth look at the overall levels of the hormones that influence most major bodily functions. The screening looks at the levels that affect cellular metabolism, energy production, detoxification efficiency, mental health, and reproduction. By providing comprehensive testing, the minor dysfunction can be caught and reversed before obvious symptoms occur or medications are needed.
The advanced cardiac profile evaluates components in the blood that help to define the patient’s risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, progression towards type 2 diabetes, and inflammation level that is associated with hypertension, obesity, and overall mortality.
The antioxidant analysis evaluates the antioxidant function of cells, and determination can be made about the body’s ability to resist oxidative stress and free radical damage.
The micronutrient analysis is a thorough evaluation of the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and antioxidant levels that are a reflection of one’s dietary intake and the result of certain medications or lifestyle factors. Deficiencies can create the potential for long-term chronic disease and illness that can affect the quality of life over time.
MTHFR genetic mutation testing looks at the body’s methylation ability, which is a biochemical pathway that is involved in nearly all the body’s functions including detoxification, energy production, DNA repair, inflammatory, immune and stress response, neurotransmitter balance, and production of glutathione. By evaluating the MTHFR gene, we can determine if there is a mutation that would disrupt the methylation process and compromise one’s health.
Food sensitivity testing measures sensitivities to up to 132 different foods, coloring, and additives. Food sensitivities and related diseases affect at least 100 million people worldwide and cause a wide variety of illnesses ranging from skin rashes and headaches to chronic intestinal disorders.
Comprehensive Thyroid Testing
Thyroid hormones regulate every cell in our body, as well as essential functions like metabolism, emotions, and thinking. We test several proteins that affect thyroid function as well as antibodies to thyroid hormones which can detect issues with autoimmunity.
Telomeres are genetic markers of cell age. As cells age, their telomeres become shorter and shorter until ultimately the cells can no longer replicate. Our telomere test can determine whether the length of your cells’ telomeres are appropriate for your age.
