Individualized Nutritional Testing – combines the testing of cellular markers that influence lectin/cellular interactions with epigenetic evaluation to create a highly specific diet for each individual patient. The test is used as a screening tool for the elimination of food intolerances. Based on the work of Dr’s James & Peter D’Adamo.

Spectracell Nutrient Analysis and Antioxidant Assessmentutilizes state of the art blood testing procedures. White blood cells are cultured and exposed to various nutrients, and then they are examined for growth. This test measures intracellular levels of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. Because it quantifies the amount of nutrients inside the cells and not just in the bloodstream, Spectracell is a more accurate assessment of individual nutrient needs than traditional blood testing. ns, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants.

Lipoprotein Particle Profile –provides a better assessment of the risk for developing coronary artery disease and heart attack by breaking down the lipoproteins into their sub-categories. Simply knowing the total cholesterol, HDL and LDL levels routinely performed on standard lipid panels does not provide enough information because the sub-particles of HDL and LDL are not provided. An assessment of the subcategories of HDL and LDL are needed in order to assess true disease risk. It is entirely possible to have normal cholesterol, HDL and LDL and still be at high risk for CAD and heart attack. The LPP provide this.

Salivary Hormone Testing used to assess adrenal function, female hormone function, and male hormone function. Salivary levels of these particular hormones provide a more accurate assessment of hormone activity at the cellular level than traditional blood analysis. While blood values tend to remain stable, salivary levels will fluctuate depending upon cellular use and patient needs. Therefore, they provide a better clinical correlation with presenting symptoms.

Blood Testing through LabCorp- Most insurance companies (excluding Medicare) cover traditional blood testing that is ordered by Naturopathic Physicians.
