Evaluating blood vessel health is a key component to determining one’s risk for a heart attack or stroke. Damage to the cells lining the blood vessels leads to endothelial dysfunction which results in possible clot formation, vessel constriction and ultimately sets the stage for plaque formation. Endothelial dysfunction can be determined by EndoPAT 2000 testing and reversed without the use of prescription medications. Click here to watch videos on EndoPat 2000.
For your convenience, Lab Services are available on site.
Routine laboratory testing is simply not enough for complete and accurate diagnoses. Patients often present with routine lab results all showing within “normal range” yet they continue to say “I just do not feel well.” Most lab results are based on a bell curve representing a wide range of what is considered to be normal. Not everyone fits into the “normal range” bell curve. We take a closer look at your individual lab values and assist in implementing preventative measures before the development of disease. Often time we combine specialty testing (Endothelial function testing, hormone testing, environmental toxicity, food sensitivity and/or others) in order to achieve your accurate diagnosis before implementing your personalized treatments.Take Our Health Surveys
Inflammation Profile Testing
Chronic inflammation is the underlying cause of all chronic disease. Looking beyond routine lab tests, we assess your blood for systemic inflammation. Blood tests (Homocysteine, C-Reactive Protein, Lipoprotein (a), Oxidized LDL and LDL particle size and number) and in office, non-invasive testing (EndoPAT 2000) are available to determine you level of inflammation, risk and/or effectiveness of current therapy.
Food Allergy/Sensitivity Testing
It is estimated that 95% of the population suffer form food toxicities. Food toxicities contribute too many of the chronic disease seen in healthcare today. Chronic stress, environmental toxins, diets high in sugar and processed foods and the use of medications (antibiotics, digestive aides) has led to an epidemic of digestive impairment. One simple blood test can provide you with the valuable information needed to drastically improve your overall health.
Hormonal imbalances affect both men and women. Men may experience a decline in motivation, a lower sex drive, loss of lean body mass and weight gain. Women may experience changes in their menstrual cycle, mood, energy, sex drive, emotions, weight, sleep and hot flashes. There is no need to suffer with symptoms. Hormone testing is available and natural hormone therapies and/or herbs are available to bring your body back into balance.
Adrenal Stress Index
Chronic stress, physical, mental or emotional, leads to compromised adrenal gland function resulting in altered levels of stress hormones (cortisol, DHEA and adrenaline) in the body. Impaired adrenal function may lead to low energy, fatigue, poor blood sugar regulation, weight issues, food cravings, weakened immune system, impaired sleep quality, and chronic pain. The adrenal stress index test evaluates your cyclical levels of stress hormones.
Heavy Metal Toxicity Testing
Acute toxic metal exposure is rare. Heavy metal toxicity (lead, mercury, cadmium, uranium and more) is most often do to chronic environmental exposure and may target the endocrine, nervous, cardiovascular or immune systems. Contaminated food, water and air supply play a significant role. Toxic metals have no useful physiological function in the body and adversely affect all organ system. Urine testing for heavy metal toxicity is available.
Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis
This test is a non invasive assessment for potential colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases (i.e. crohns disease or ulcerative colitis) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a reliable assessment of exocrine pancreatic function, and expanded yeast and parasite detection. This test evaluates digestion, absorption, gut flora, and the colonic environment. It is indicated for all chronic GI problems, acute bowel pattern changes, and many systemic diseases.
Intracellular Nutrient and Fatty Acid Analysis
Research shows that 50% of people taking multivitamins may still be nutritionally deficient. Biochemical individually, absorption, chronic illness, aging and lifestyle can all dramatically impact our nutrient status. Conventional blood serum testing does not reflect the level of micronutrients within the white blood cell or the red blood cell. Intracellular levels of micronutrients give a much more accurate picture of nutrient status.
Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis
Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is used for estimating body composition. It is a non-invasive test used in determining the resistance to the flow of an electric current through body tissues. The more muscle a person has, the more water their body can hold. The more fat the greater the resistance. Excessive body fat is associated with inflammatory processes and is linked to the onset of chronic disease.
The human nervous system is one of the most complex systems in nature. It is responsible for coordinating thousands of processes through its chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. Imbalanced neurotransmitter levels may lead to feelings of sadness, depression, anxiety, fatigue, headaches and even behavioral problems. The proper balance between excitatory (epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine) and inhibitory (GABA, serotonin) neurotransmitters is significantly important in maintaining optimal health.
