Did you know that 90% of diets fail? This is likely because each person’s body, and how it reacts to various foods, is unique. By analyzing your DNA and applying our expertise in nutrigenetics (nutrition + genetics), your nutrition report will give you personalized, actionable recommendations designed to help you reach your health goals.
Your genes don’t just determine your physical traits like eye color and body type. They can also determine physiological traits like endurance, fat burning ability, and metabolism. Your exercise report outlines the optimal physical activities for your body so you can start seeing better results, faster.
Feeling fatigued? A little forgetful? Have unexplained health issues? If you’re like most people, you suffer from undiagnosed nutrient deficiencies that can negatively affect your health, memory, and energy levels. By analyzing your DNA, we can determine deficiencies you are more inclined to suffer from, and provide a personalized supplement plan that will help you feeling your best.
Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are functioning within your white blood cells. These tests allow a nutritional assessment for a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases.
Micronutrient testing facilitates the prevention and early detection/ diagnosis of deficiency and disease while helping guide effective treatment options. These tests help our clients by addressing multiple areas of the diagnostic puzzle including micronutrient status, cardiovascular health, metabolic risk, and inflammation – in short, many of the functional components that comprise total health.
Our Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with over 70 markers. It provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete several abnormal organic acids in their urine. The cause of these high levels could include oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, acquired infections, as well as genetic factors.
Our Organic Acids Test also includes markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels, and is the only OAT to include markers for oxalates, which are highly correlated with many chronic illnesses.
If abnormalities are detected, treatments can include supplements, such as vitamins and antioxidants, or dietary modification. Upon treatment, our patients have reported significant improvement such as decreased fatigue, regular bowel function, increased energy and alertness, increased concentration, improved verbal skills, less hyperactivity, and decreased abdominal pain. The OAT is strongly recommended as the initial screening test.
Food sensitivity testing
The power of knowing
There is a new paradigm in health and medicine – personalization. Health can be improved and maintained by knowing how food plays a role in your body.
Our test enables you to take advantage of leading technology to create a personalized nutrition plan resulting in benefits that can be seen and felt.
The results from the test can help determine which foods and other substances may trigger unwanted inflammation. The personalized nutrition plan based on your immune response can assist with food choices that are better for your health and well-being. When complying with your plan of care, many clinical symptoms associated with food sensitivity may be substantially improved or possibly prevented altogether.
Weight gain & obesity affect 69% of us. Testing can reveal whether hormones are the root cause of your weight gain.
Many know that maintaining an ideal weight is difficult despite the best efforts with diet and exercise. What most don’t know is that an undetected hormone imbalance can be the missing link – sabotaging our hard work to stay slim.
What’s the Connection?
Hormones are key players in regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin, and when and where the body stores fat. As we age, shifting hormones trigger numerous symptoms of imbalance – including unexplained weight gain.
Common hormone-related causes of weight gain often involve the following scenarios:
Estrogen & Progesterone Imbalances
Result in weight gain in hips and thighs, water retention & sluggish metabolism
Low Testosterone or DHEA
Lead to decreased lean muscle and increased body fat, decreased metabolic rate & abdominal obesity
Results in insomnia, anxiety, sugar cravings, feeling tired but wired & increased belly fat
Causes chronic fatigue, low energy, food and sugar cravings, poor exercise tolerance or recovery & low immune reserves
Vitamin D3 deficiency
Associated with hyperinsulinemia & increased belly fat
Leads to hypothyroidism, low metabolic rate & obesity
Indicative of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome & abdominal obesity
Predictive of type 2 diabetes
Nutrition Supplementation and Intervention
We believe that nutrition supplementation is an important part to a healthy nutrition and lifestyle plan. The food we eat does not provide adequate amounts of nutrients we need on a daily basis and many other factors affect the digestion and absorption of essential vitamins and minerals. We look at the body as a whole and determine which supplements will support your health and wellness.
There are millions of products out there and we will help you determine which are worth the investment in your health.
