How We Identify Nutritional Imbalances & Toxicities

We are proud to use Metametrix Laboratories in our search for your answers.

None of these tests is intended to diagnose, treat, or cure disease. They are for informative and educational purposes only.

We will work with you to investigate underlying causes of disease:

The ION Profile is the most complete nutritional and metabolic testing program available. It measures more than 100 components, integrating them into a complete picture of your individual biochemistry.
Organix Acid Profile
Organix Acid Testing does not diagnose disease; it helps give insight into the causes of it. This profile assesses metabolic dysfunctions.
IgG Food Antibodies
It is estimated that 60 percent of the population suffer from reactions to foods that can cause or complicate health problems. First we have IgE-Immediate food reactions: allergies. Second we have IgG-Delayed food reactions. They can be seen as hidden allergies.
Fatty Acids
Because fatty acids are essential parts of cells and are used in cell communication, deficiencies or imbalances can affect your life in numerous ways.
Amino Acids
Amino Acids have more diverse functions than any other nutrient group. They are a factor in every chemical process that affects the physical, mental, and emotional functions.
High levels of cortisol and low levels of the hormone DHEA can be damaging to the brain and other tissues. Cortisol elevation also impacts immune responses, such as secretory IgA and AGA. AGA is elevated in people with gliadin intolerance and celiac disease.
A woman's biochemical individuality determines how much of each form of estrogen is produced. Studies have shown that measuring the ratio of the two forms of estrogen provides an important indication of your risk for future development of breast cancer.
Bone Resorption Assay
Since bone formation is difficult to measure, it is important to determine if you are among the men and women with rapid bone breakdown.
Detoxification Capacity Test
Testing for detoxification capacity can reveal the status of specific functions of six different cells.
Toxic Elements
Over time it is possible to build up a toxic load that can make you ill.
Porphyrins Profile
This profile measures seven porphyrins, total porphyrins, and three ratios to help you differentiate heavy metal toxicity.
GI Effects TM Stool
This latest innovation uses DNA analysis to increase the accuracy of test results and identify 100 percent of microbiota present.
Blood Type Test
This test is done onsite and is not time consuming. This, in combination with the IgG Food Reaction test, provides critical information on foods that react in each individual.
