We offer Precision Analytical’s series of Dutch tests. They use urine and saliva samples to gain an extensive viewpoint of sex and adrenal hormones, melatonin, and other metabolites. These tests allow our team to determine the symptoms of hormonal imbalances. We also add Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) and innovative Cycle Mapping™ to help shape our understanding of your system.
We use the GI-Map test from Diagnostic Solutions for comprehensive stool sample testing. It uses quantitative polymerase chain reaction technology to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more. It also targets the specific DNA of each organism. We can use this test for indicators of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function issues. An add-on can detect the leaky gut marker zonulin.
We utilize Genova Diagnostics' NutrEval test which is recommended for patients suffering from symptoms related to nutritional imbalances and deficiencies such as mood disorders, cardiovascular disease, obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, autism, fatigue, weight issues, malnutrition, dietary guidance, maldigestion, malabsorption, and increased nutrient demand in physical trauma or healing. Even patients not suffering from uncomfortable symptoms may be deficient in certain essential nutrients like Iron, Vitamin D, B12, Calcium, and Magnesium which can be easily identified with a nutritional test.
The NutrEval Test analyzes over 125 biomarkers and evaluates over 40 antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and other selected nutrients. Some families of biomarkers are organic acids, oxidative stress markers, essential and non-essential amino acids, dietary peptide-related markers, essential and metabolic fatty acids markers, nutrient elements, and toxic elements, among others. Genova also makes the Adrenal Stress Profile, which we use to measure active parent hormone levels, DHEA and cortisol, the Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) and the DHEA/Cortisol ratio.
