As part of our functional approach to health care, our ND’s believe in uncovering the root cause of your symptoms. We offer an array of cutting edge tests from accredited labs across North America that help us get there. Don't guess, test. Below are several of our most commonly run tests:
Rocky Mountain Analytical FST IgG food sensitivity blood testing
Find out what foods are triggering your IgG white blood cells leading to chronic inflammation, digestive disorders, skin ailments, mood concerns, joint pain, headaches and even more.
Rocky Mountain Analytical urinary toxic elements testing
Canada releases upwards of 1 billion kg of reproductive toxins & 32 million kg of carcinogenic & hormone disrupting toxins yearly. Heavy metals, being among these toxins, can be tested in urine. If toxic levels are identified, a natural chelation (removal) program can be put in place. Heavy metals have been associated with many chronic health concerns including cancer, moods disorders, chronic pain, fatigue and even cardiovascular disease.
Rocky Mountain Analytical month long salivary hormone testing
Salivary hormone testing is the most comprehensive & easy way to map out month long hormone fluctuations to identify cycle dependant complaints such as infertility, PMS, mood swings, migraines & irregular bleeding.
Precision Analytical DUTCH urinary hormones testing
The urinary hormone test overcomes many limitations of standard blood tests. By collecting samples over a 24 hour period you are able to overcome the daily fluctuation in hormones and get a daily average. Urine testing is able to catch many more hormonal metabolites of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and cortisol allowing for the most thorough assessment on the market currently.
Doctors Data CDSA (comprehensive digestive stool analysis) testing
“All disease starts in the gut” said Hippocrates. Doctors Data is North Americas leader in digestive analysis. Their tests pinpoint the causes of gastrointestinal symptoms & chronic systemic conditions by measuring beneficial and abnormal microbial growth, digestive capability and intestinal inflammation. This test will also identify which natural products effectively tackle the dysbiotic microbes cultured in your sample.
Genova SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) breath testing
SIBO is the leading cause of IBS and many other systemic concerns. SIBO is diagnosed with a simple breath test which measures gases produced by bacteria that have overgrown in the small intestine. Once identified, it can be treated effectively with a natural protocol.
Genova Organix OAT (urinary organic acids) testing
Using a single urine sample, this test is able to assess over 70 markers evaluating intestinal microbial infections, metabolism, detoxification & neurotransmitter breakdown. Based on the results, appropriate supplementation is recommended to overcome metabolic blocks.
Spectracell cardiometabolic testing
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death. Standard cholesterol tests run through our provincial health care can miss that you are at risk. This test offers a clinically relevant evaluation to help define risk for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and inflammation so that an appropriate treatment plan can be put in place.
