Testing

Your answer begins with data

test options tailored to you

You might already feel as though you’ve gone through several tests and you’ve come to the end of the line without answers.  There are more testing options (other than by traditional means) that give a more robust picture of what is happening in your body. Tests look not only at the bad stuff, but also the the good stuff which gives a more clear picture.  Testing diagnostics can enlighten the individual and the practitioner on the overlooked and elusive answers. Threading all of the test results together help connect the dots to uncover mysterious causes and answers that have often been overlooked.

A Revolutionary hormone test

DUTCH

DUTCH stands for dry urine test for comprehensive hormones. This test gives the most complete profile of your hormones.

Science-Backed Hormone test

By collecting urine samples using filter paper 4-5x throughout a day in addition to a saliva collection, we gain insight into your hormone profile unavailable via blood testing. 

9 Common Tests Used

In addition to Comprehensive Stool Testing, SIBO and Organic Acid Testing I frequently work with the following tests to better understand client’s symptom drivers and therefore best intervention.

Intolerance and Allergy P88 Antigen Food Panel

Venus Blood Draw or Finger Prick
This food panel offers food allergy and sensitivity testing often associated with a myriad of
symptoms, not just gut related but systemic. The P88 Dietary Antigen Test uniquely combines IgE,
IgG, IgG4 and complement (C3d – inflammation driver) reactions to 88 of the most common foods
found in the diet.

Intestinal Permeability Test (Leaky Gut Test)

Urine or Venus blood draw
Identifies the development of intestinal permeability associated with gastric dysregulation, Small
Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Small Intestinal Fungal Overgrowth (SIFO) and autoimmune conditions from Rheumatoid Arthritis to Hashimoto’s. *usually combined with other tests

Diamine oxidase (DAO) – Histamine degradation

Venus Blood Draw
Diamine oxidase (DAO) is an enzyme responsible for the degradation of histamine in the
gastrointestinal tract. As a result of SIBO, SIFO, mucosal lining injury, intestinal permeability, genetic
predisposition, levels of DAO can decline, increasing risk of histamine intolerance and allergic type response.

Celiac and Gluten Sensitivity Testing

Serum
This test helps differentiate between Coeliac Disease, gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy. This test is useful for patients with gastric symptoms, ongoing skin conditions, CFS/ME, autoimmunity, arthritis, and
neurological conditions.

Womens Key Complete

Urine Collection
This test identifies microbial overgrowth associated with chronic UTIs and interstitial cystitis. Extensive assessment of 14,000 microbes potentially associated with irritable bladder, interstitial cystitis and chronic UTIs resistant to regular antibiotic use. This test identifies microbial overgrowth and
antibiotic sensitivity allowing for targeted intervention.

Female Blood Panel

Venus Blood Draw
Screens key female hormones fundamental to female wellness from teenage to menopause.

Adrenal Stress Panel

Saliva collection
Chronic stress may lead to both excess and deficiencies of DHEA and cortisol implicated in illness and immune suppression. Fatigue, nervousness, weakness, sugar cravings, insomnia, dizzy spells, headaches, irritability, fibromyalgia, chronic inflammation, hormone imbalances, infections, poor sleep, anxiety and depression are common symptoms.

MycoToxin Profile

Urine Collection
Mycotoxins released into the environment from mold can lead to chronic illness in susceptible individuals. Exposure may initiate unsuspecting symptoms including increased allergies, asthma, sinusitis, memory loss, headaches, impaired vision, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, and anxiety.

Hepatic Detox Profile

Urine Collection

The Hepatic Detox Profile measures D-glucaric acid and mercapturic acids. The test provides insight into the body’s ability to detoxifying via phase 1 and phase 2 of the liver. By assessing D-glucaric and mercapturic acids we understand the efficacy of chemical toxin elimination via the liver.
