We provide both standard and specialist testing to determine the source of your health problems. Conventional lab testing (through Lifelabs) as well as saliva hormone testing, heavy metal testing, stool analysis and micronutrient testing are services that we provide. Unique lab tests are used by Naturopathic Doctors to acquire a picture of what is going on inside your body at a molecular level. We can perform the normal tests that most medical professionals perform, but we can also perform tests that most other health care providers do not. These tests are typically very helpful in determining the main cause of your ailment and developing a diagnosis and individualized treatment plan.
Below are additional details on some of the testing that we offer:
Hair Analysis to Assess for Heavy Metal Toxicity - Toxic elements may be 200-300 times more highly concentrated in hair than in blood or urine. Therefore, hair is the tissue of choice for detection of recent exposure to elements such as arsenic, aluminum, cadmium, lead, antimony, and mercury.
Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis - Evaluates digestion and absorption of meat fibers, plant fibers and fats, gut flora, parasites and the colonic environment, checks for proper enzymes and stomach acid production.
Saliva Hormone Testing - Saliva hormone testing is most useful for uncovering hormone imbalance. For example: discovering a woman has insufficient progesterone to balance high estradiol levels or; that high cortisol levels are interfering with the action of progesterone and testosterone. Specific tests available include:
Intracellular Nutrient Assessment
