While not used or needed for most clients, some clients want the option of testing to stop chasing symptoms and identify sub-clinical, hidden stressors that often remain undetected by conventional doctor's tests. We offer laboratory testing to identify the often undiagnosed and underlying malfunctions of the body. Testing fees are paid to the lab in addition to consulting fees and any blood draw fees.
Labs can provide CPT codes for the lab tests below so you can submit member claim forms to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.
Advanced Metabolic Typing™ Test $35.00
Your body’s biochemistry is as unique as your finger prints. Eating right for your needs is the root of health. Metabolic Typing is a highly individualized, scientific methodology to determine what foods each unique individual should eat, when you should eat them, and what proportions to eat. You are unique. This is why one program may work for your friend but not for you. Once you understand how your body best burns and metabolizes food, you regain the power to help your body back into balance and partner with your body's own innate ability to heal itself.

Food Sensitivities: Signet Mediator Release Test (MRT)
Millions of Americans suffer from food sensitivities. Conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, migraine and other headaches, weight imbalances, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, skin eruptions, brain fog and many other uncomfortable lingering health problems are often directly related to specific immune reactions to the foods we eat. Knowing which foods you may be sensitive to can help you avoid problematic foods and therefore feel better.

Hormones and Stress: Adrenal Stress Profile, Plus V (BioHealth #205) $176.00
4 cortisol, 2 averaged DHEA-S, estradiol, estriol,
testosterone (AM), melatonin (bedtime), progesterone (bedtime). This test collects four saliva samples; morning, noon, evening and bedtime. The cortisol and DHEA measurements at these times tell us how well your adrenal glands are functioning. Plus, we look at the main steroidal (sex) hormones, estradiol, estriol, progesterone and testosterone. And we also look at melatonin, the sleep hormone, because one of the most common main complaints is sleep problems.
Gut Immune Test: Intestinal Barrier Function Screen (BioHealth #304B) $250.00
The Intestinal Barrier Function Screen uses a single saliva sample to assess the level of secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) and the levels of free IgA and IgM to combined dietary proteins (wheat/gliadin, corn, soy, cow's milk, egg); aerobic bacteria (Escherichia coli and E. enterococcus); anaerobic bacteria (Bacteroides fragilis and Clostridium perfringens); Candida albicans yeast. The lining of the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the anus, is covered by a mucosal barrier, which provides our first line immune defense against pathogens and a mechanism for proper processing of food antigens. The mucosal barrier contains specific immune defenses including mucosal antibodies. A healthy mucosal barrier defense contains sufficient antibodies and responds to normally encountered antigens and deals with them appropriately. All of the dietary proteins, yeasts, and bacteria used in this test are normally found in the human body or diet. IgA is the predominant antibody quantitatively in the mucosal immune system.
This test helps determine whether there is an appropriate mucosal immune response.
GI/Pathogen Screen with H. Pylori (BioHealth #401H) $267.00 *

Five stool samples and one smear are taken over a four-day period, providing a highly reliable comprehensive analysis of intestinal microflora.
