Nutrition Testing Services
We spend a great deal of time each year getting trained in cutting edge holistic care and functional medicine. What this means to you is that our primary focus is to return your body to a fully functioning, optimal health state. Just treating symptoms and “getting by” is not good enough for us. To achieve the level of results we are known for, we use many diagnostic tools including laboratory nutrition testing.
Currently, we test genes, blood, saliva, urine, stool, skin and hair as well as using physical diagnosis techniques that involve palpation, joint range of motion measurement, Applied Kinesiology, strength testing (testing individual muscles) and much more. We review tests and medical records from other providers to find the gaps in health care that have prevented you from achieving the level of success you are looking for. We like a challenge and our practice is built on it. We test hormones, minerals, toxic metals, immune function, thyroid and adrenal function, digestive function and more. We find and treat food allergies, parasites, yeast (Candida) and other hard-to-find infections.
Combining Oriental medicine, Western medicine and nutrition, we clearly see solutions that are missed when only seeing practitioners within one field. These tests regularly uncover hidden causes for poor health, and we treat them quickly and efficiently.
Genetic Nutrition Testing
Wouldn’t it be nice to know what YOUR genes specifically needed? If you didn’t detox well and needed more cruciferous vegetables? If YOU are someone for whom smoked meats might cause cancer? If you’re salt sensitive? If you have the MTHFR variation? (or another folate variation?) This genetic testing looks at genes specifically impacted by diet, nutrition, and exercise, and gives clear guidelines as to what is needed to optimize your genetic expression, for now, and in the future. No scary genes here! These are genes you can make a difference with NOW, improving your health from this point forward. Ask about this option at your visit or read more about it here.
