Beyond exploring lifestyle factors to identify the root cause of chronic disease we frequently use advanced lab testing. Knowing about the various available lab tests, which tests to order, and how to interpret the results requires years of experience. This level of service is seldom offered in the traditional medical office.
We use an array of specialty labs to evaluate conditions such as intestinal permeability, food reactivity, autoimmune risk, and lymphocyte dysfunction. Moreover, we use specialty labs to detect mycotoxins, heavy metals, and mineral deficiencies.
The test results help aid our diagnosis and guide our treatment recommendations.
Specialty Lab Testing with Cyrex Labs
Cyrex™ offers multi-tissue antibody testing for the early detection and monitoring of today’s complex autoimmune conditions.
Cyrex™ addresses the cross-connections between the body’s endocrine, gastrointestinal and neurological systems which play a significant role in the development of today’s complex disorders.
Organic Acid Test
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity. Accumulation of specific organic acids in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. This abnormality may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up, or drug effect.
Doctors Data: Heavy Metals Testing
Analysis of toxic metals in urine after the administration of a metal detoxification agent is a good way to evaluate the accumulation of toxic metals. Acute metal poisoning is rare. More common is chronic, low-level exposure to toxic metals that can be associated with a vast array of adverse health effects and chronic disease. Let’s get you tested.
SpectraCell is a precision laboratory that measures integrative health—at the cellular level. Although founded on nutritional testing, as a lab they have evolved into much more, offering innovative solutions that address multiple areas of the diagnostic puzzle, including:
- Cellular Nutrition
- Cardiovascular Health
- Genetic Predisposition Their unique solutions are designed to understand the body as a system; to identify the causes of illness, and to work with your doctor to provide an individualized roadmap to restore balance and achieve optimal health.
Genova combines standard and innovative biomarkers to provide a more complete understanding of specific biological systems. Chronic diseases are often complex and Genova’s system-based testing helps physicians develop targeted, personalized treatments for their patients. Easy-to-read color graphic reports synthesize test results into actionable information and facilitate physician-patient communication.
Great Plains Laboratory: Mold Exposure
The MycoTOX profile, or Mold Exposure profile screens for eleven different mycotoxins, from 40 species of mold, in one urine sample. Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foodstuffs. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure.
