Laboratory Analysis

I am here to tell you that…

“NO STONE IS LEFT UNTURNED TO DETERMINE THE EXACT CAUSE OF YOUR CONDITION!”

“HOW DO I SUCCESSFULLY TREAT …….?”

By using specific metabolic and neurological testing and treatments!

Metabolic Treatments Based on Specific Lab Panels:

By using specific blood tests such as:

#1. A thyroid panel (including thyroid antibodies)

#2. A complete metabolic panel (CMP)

#3. A lipid panel

#4. A CBC (complete blood chemistry with auto differential)

We can assess your thyroid, adrenal glands, liver, kidneys, red/white blood cells and gut function with the above lab tests.  All internal functions can be affected with chronic health conditions. By addressing any problems with your thyroid, adrenal glands, blood chemistry, or gut function, we can help you to heal faster.  The CMP also allows us to check your blood glucose levels since glucose and oxygen are needed by the brain to function properly.

#5: Sensitivity Testing: This test determines if you have a sensitivity to gluten (wheat, rye, oats, and barley), milk, eggs, yeast, and soy.  If you are sensitive to ANY of these food groups, it IS making your condition worse!  If you have the following symptoms, you could be suffering from sensitivity to gluten, soy, milk, eggs, and/or yeast.

Here are some of the symptoms of these sensitivities:

  • Chronic pain or fatigue
  • Frequent indigestion
  • Bloated after eating
  • Frequent loose bowel movements
  • Constipation
  • Mouth ulcers or sores
  • Vomit often

The only way to find out of you are suffering from any of these sensitivities, is the run the test!

#6: Adrenal Stress Index (ASI):  We can further test your adrenal glands with a test called an Adrenal Stress Index. This is a salivary test much like DNA testing.  Your adrenal glands are your “stress” organs meaning that they react to stress.  If you have been or are currently under stress, this test is a must!

IF YOU SUFFER FROM INSOMNIA OR BLOOD SUGAR ISSUES, THIS TEST WILL MEASURE YOUR CORTISOL LEVELS.  When your body’s cortisol levels are abnormal, you will suffer from insomnia and/or problems with your blood sugar.  Cortisol levels can be corrected via specific nutritional protocols.

#7: Immune Panels: Your condition could be caused by an autoimmune disorder.  As you know, an autoimmune disorder is where your immune system attacks a particular area of the body (nervous system, joints, connective tissue, thyroid, etc.) so we test for specific antibodies to determine if you suffer from an autoimmune condition.

Immune Panels:

A: T and B Lymphocyte & NKC

B: Cytokine Panels—IL-2, TNF-Alpha, IL-4 and IL-10

C: Natural Killer Cell Activity

You will want to determine if there is an active antigen or dysregulation.

Active antigens are parasites, bacteria, virus, mold, yeast, fungi, protozoan, foods, chemicals, and heavy metals.

The immune panels give me an in depth picture as to what is exactly happening with your immune system.  If you are suffering from an auto-immune disorder, it obviously trumps everything and it must be the first thing to be addressed.

#8: H.Pylori: We can run a test for H. Pylori bacteria to determine any problems related to the gut function.

#9: Intestinal Permeability:  Used to determine if the patient suffers from leaky gut syndrome (LGS).

LGS or Leaky gut syndrome describes a condition of altered or damaged bowel lining, caused by antibioticstoxins, poor diet, parasitesor infection can lead to increased permeability of the gut wall to toxins, microbes, undigested food, waste or larger than normal macromolecules. It has been proposed that these substances affect the body directly, while others postulate an immune reaction to these substances.

#10: NEUROTRANSMITTERS: We test for decreased brain neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are vital for proper brain function. Decreased neurotransmitters can cause increased pain.

#11: HORMONE PANELS:  We can check hormone panels to determine if the patient suffers from low testosterone in males or low estrogen/progesterone levels in females. Symptoms related to decreased hormone levels may include depression, fatigue, mental fogginess, mood swings, hot flashes, sweating attacks, weight gain, and decreased physical stamina.

#12: INFLAMMATION: Finally, we may need to test for inflammation in your system by testing homocysteine levels and C-Reactive Protein (C-RP).  Many patients suffering from chronic health conditions suffer from inflammatory processes.  Just about every fibromyalgia patient that I have treated suffers from some form of chronic inflammatory process.
