As a integrative medicine practice, we oftentimes see patients that just feel “not quite right” – where there is no one dominant symptom that can point us in the right direction. Examples can range from chronic bloating, unexplained headaches or migraines, chronic fatigue, insomnia, to any number of vague symptoms.
Beyond exploring possible lifestyle factors to identify the root cause of chronic dis-ease or wellness challenges, we frequently use advanced integrative medicine lab testing that provide valuable information about health at the cellular level.
The test results help guide our treatment recommendations in major ways – allowing us to craft an approach unique to your situation, genetics, and biochemistry.
GI Map Test
The FDA-approved GI-MAP test by Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory was designed to detect intestinal microbes that may be disturbing normal microbial balance or contributing to illness. The test is also an important indicator of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function.
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.

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.
