Thyroid Testing


Thyroid tests are used to check how well your thyroid is working and to find the cause of problems such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. The thyroid  makes two hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), and these hormones control how the body uses energy, and affect nearly every organ in your body. Testing your thyroid can help diagnose these issues:

  • Hyperthyroidism & Hypothyroidism

  • Graves' Disease

  • Hashimoto's

  • Thyroid Nodules & Thyroid Cancer

Male & Female Hormone Testing


Like nutrients, hormones influence all aspects of health and disease. An imbalance of one hormone can initiate a number of events that alters other hormones. They can also influence other parts of your overall physical and mental health, like with your energy, mood, muscle mass, and even bone health. We offer hormone testing for both men and women, so you can feel your best.

Organic Acids


Organic acids can directly or indirectly indicate deficiencies in a number of critical vitamins like B12 and biotin. An organic acids test offers a complete metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health. It shows things like the levels of intestinal yeast and bacteria, includes markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, and more.

Mold Exposure


If you have been exposed to mold and have been suffering from an allergic reaction or a dip in your health, testing for mold exposure and getting treatment is vital. There are two types of ways we can test for a mold allergy: blood test or skin prick test. We have various treatment options available for those who test positive for mold exposure and allergies.

GI Microbiome & Leaky Gut


Testing your microbiomes can show quite a bit about your overall gut health. Imbalances in your GI microbiome may lead to a condition called Leaky Gut Syndrome, which can cause or impact a number of issues, including:

  • Crohn’s disease

  • Celiac disease

  • Chronic liver disease

  • Diabetes

  • Food allergies and sensitivities

  • Polycystic ovary syndrom (PCOS)

  • Anxiety/Depression

Micronutrient Testing


Micronutrient testing is the next-generation of blood tests that are designed to specifically measure the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino/fatty acids, and metabolites within a patient’s white blood cells. These tests can help practitioners see various deficiencies and help develop specific protocols to create the desired results and improve the health of the patient.

Cholesterol and Omega Fatty Acids

Fatty acids help prevent irregular heartbeats and other cardiovascular events, as well as improve good cholesterol and decrease bad cholesterol. Get tested today to see if you have a fatty acid deficiency and improve your health. A deficiency of omegas or fatty acids can show up in a number of ways, including:

  • Irritability 

  • Dry skin and hair

  • Brittle nails

  • Poor concentration

  • Fatigue

  • Poor sleep

  • Joint pain and discomfort

Detox Therapies


Food sensitivities or intolerances are caused by the inability to digest certain foods. Symptoms can be delayed, and can come and go at intervals. Food sensitivities and allergies can change every year, which is why we encourage regular testing. Food sensitivities or intolerances can show up in many ways, including:

  • Migraines 

  • Fatigue

  • Stomach ache

  • Chronic pain

  • Anxiety and depression

Heavy Metals


With heavy metal exposure seemingly on the rise, it’s important to make sure you’re not suffering from heavy metal exposure. The most common ways to be exposed to heavy metals in your daily life are from sources like cigarettes, seafood, rice, dental filings, and well water. There are two ways to test for metals, as the different elements affect different bodily systems. With either a blood or urine test, we can see what exposure a patient may have.

Neurotransmitter Testing


Are you experiencing symptoms from mental fog to anxiety? These are often caused by a neurotransmitter imbalance in the brain. By testing your neurotransmitters, you can get a look inside of your mind to help explain a number of neurological or psychological issues, like:

  • Anxiety & Depression

  • ADHD 

  • Bipolar Disorder

  • Sleep Disorders

  • Memory Impairment

  • Weight Issues
