Lab Tests

With lab testing, we are not diagnosing disease, but rather looking for the underlying root causes of why you feel tired, worn out, run down, or lacking energy in general. The labs can be mailed out anywhere in the US and they can be completed by you the same week right at home. And that translates to better compliance, faster results, and happier healthier clients. So, after you get your test kit, all you have to do is follow the simple instructions, place it in the prepaid envelope and mail it to the lab. All at-home lab tests take 3-4 weeks to get the results back after you've mailed them in. You will then receive a simple to follow Personalized Wellness Plan from the ND I am getting my IHP certification through based on your unique results and symptoms.

Organic Acids Test (OAT)

Best test for gut issues. According to GPL Labs, The Organic Acids Test (OAT) 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.

This is the simplest and most straight forward way to get the results you need to begin making positive health changes in your life (or your children’s).

Thyroid, Adrenal & Hormone Test

Losing weight has less to do with the amount of calories you eat or how much you exercise, and everything to do with hormone balance, cortisol levels, and metabolism. By looking at the hidden inflammatory triggers and hormone imbalances we can discover what is holding you back from the body you want and the results you deserve.

Adrenal___Hormone_Test_2000x.jpg

Adrenal Hormone Test

This test is the gold standard for testing usable hormone levels from a Functional Medicine perspective. We are looking for the underlying root causes of why you feel tired, worn out, run down, or lacking energy in general. Useful for estrogen/progesterone ratio, thyroid problems, and clients having difficulty losing weight or improving their mood. A fantastic place to start when looking at how your hormones, nervous system, and stress are effecting your mind and body.

Sleep & Stress Test

This particular lab allows you to look at your current 24-hour circadian rhythm and how you are producing cortisol (energy) throughout the day. Often times with people suffering from irregular sleep patterns their normal circadian rhythm has become disturbed. And as a result they are producing too much cortisol in the evening when their body should be winding down, instead of revving up. This is a fantastic place to start when looking at how your hormones, nervous system, and stress are effecting your mind and body.
