.

 THE SCIENCE

The Adrenal Stress Profile is a convenient, noninvasive salivary assay that evaluates the bioactive levels and interrelationship of the body’s important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. This profile serves as an insightful tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances that can be associated with anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, obesity, dysglycemia, and a host of other clinical conditions.

Cortisol

Cortisol  is released in large amounts in response to physical, physiological, and/or psychological stressors. A glucocorticoid response that is elevated, extended, or inadequate can impair a person’s adaptation to stress, increase or decrease HPA-axis activity and is considered a health risk. Due to the circadian pattern of cortisol release, sequential timed measurements of cortisol provide the best tracking of overall cortisol production.

DHEA

DHEA in contrast to cortisol, exerts mostly anabolic actions and balances the body’s stress response. DHEA functions to provide substrate for the synthesis of sex hormones, guards against degenerative conditions associated with aging, influences immune function and energy production, and affects insulin sensitivity, thyroid function, and protein synthesis.

Although both DHEA and cortisol are produced by the adrenal cortex, they exhibit many opposing actions

COMPREHENSIVE INTOLERANCE TEST

Measure your body’s immune response to
the food. Learn your food sensitivity
symptoms by eliminating the triggering
food source.

Initial consultation 1 hr

Blood draw 30mins

 BENEFITS

Food sensitivity test which helps identify those with IgG–mediated food intolerances. IgG4 antibody is related to delayed or non–atopic food reactions that exacerbate or contribute to many different health problems. This antibody food sensitivity test is ideal for patients who may suffer from delayed reactions/sensitivities to specific foods.

WHAT IS IT FOR?

By understanding your food sensitivities, we can work to eliminate the following symptoms

  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Ear Infections
  • Eczema
  • Sinusitis
  • Urticaria
  • Colitis

 

 THE TREATMENT

An initial consultation with you so that our nutritionist can understand your symptoms, concerns and goals to determine the best approach.

 

During this consultation, our nutritionist will build up a picture of your lifestyle and eating patterns, and work through your symptoms and concerns to make sure the test is right for you.

You will then attend a second visit where we will collect a small blood sample to be analysed before consulting you on the best dietary approach

 THE SCIENCE

An IgG4 response to food is actually more common than the IgE response, which causes an immediate reaction. These food sensitivity reactions are more difficult to notice since they can occur hours or even days after consumption of an offending food. In some cases, a person’s reaction to a food may occur several days after eating the offending food and the link between the food and their symptoms may not be connected. These hidden food “allergies” are actually food “sensitivities” and are caused by increasing blood levels of IgG4 antibodies in reaction to specific foods. This profile measures the IgG4 levels in serum that react to 90 different foods, including commonly eaten foods such as corn, milk, egg, and wheat.

Mood

 THE TREATMENT

An initial consultation with you so that our nutritionist can understand your symptoms, concerns and goals to determine the best approach.

 

During this consultation, our nutritionist will build up a picture of your lifestyle and eating patterns, and work through your symptoms and concerns to make sure the test is right for you.

 

You will then attend a second visit where we will collect a stool sample to be analysed before consulting you on the best dietary approach

 THE SCIENCE

Our stool testing methodology uses RT-PCR, or qPCR, known as, “one of the most

powerful and sensitive gene analysis techniques available.” It is more sensitive and specific than older methods for PCR detection of fecal microbes, detecting as low as 0.1 cell per gram of stool. The GI-MAP  quantifies a substantial list of pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and opportunistic pathogens, including novel  targets such as viruses, Microsporidia, and pathogenic virulence factors. Chronic gastrointestinal  symptoms, intestinal permeability, hormonal imbalance, and food sensitivities may trace their origins back to imbalanced gut microbes. Further, chronic inflammatory arthritis could have a microbial component that may warrant investigation by stool studies. This stool test offers integrative and functional medicine practitioners superior sensitivity and specificity to help resolve persistent and complex illnesses. Since the immune system, the intestinal barrier, and microbial diversity are intimately interwoven, thorough understanding of our gut microbiome holds promise for new approaches to treat and prevent disease

HEALTH ASSESSMENT OF SMALL INTESTINE

Measures hydrogen and methane gasses inbreath to determine if there is an overgrowth in bacteria in small intestine

Initial consultation 1 hr

Sample collection 30 mins

 

 BENEFITS

Measures the levels of hydrogen and methane gases in your breath to determine if there is bacteria overgrowth in the small intestine

WHAT IS IT FOR?

Bacterial overgrowth can lead to uncomfortable symptoms such as bloating, cramp, build up of gas.

This test will allow us to see if this if you are suffering from overgrowth and then we can work with you to reduce these symptoms and remove the overgrowth.

THE TREATMENT

An initial consultation with you so that our nutritionist can understand your symptoms, concerns and goals to determine the best approach.

 

During this consultation, our nutritionist will build up a picture of your lifestyle and eating patterns, and work through your symptoms and concerns to make sure the test is right for you.

 

You will then attend a second visit where we will collect a breath sample to be analysed before consulting you on the best dietary approach.

 THE SCIENCE

A Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth breath test using glucose as the substrate.

The breath test measures hydrogen and methane gasses in response to glucose, a monosaccharide. This simple carbohydrate is readily absorbed in the first section of the small intestine. For this reason, there should not be a rise in gas, as it typically does not reach the colon where bacteria metabolise carbohydrates.

If SIBO is present, the bacteria will begin to metabolise glucose, producing hydrogen and/or methane gas.

Due to its rapid absorption, glucose may not reach the distal section of the small intestine; there fore the glucose test is best used alongside lactulose to assess the entire small intestine.

The breath collection device included in the kits ensures accurate measuring of alveolar air and not room air, thus guarding against potential false negatives associated with other breath collection processes

You will then attend a second visit where we will collect a small blood sample to be analyzed before consulting you on the best dietary approach for you.

 THE SCIENCE

Amino acids are integral to healthy body chemistry. They serve as the bodyʼs basic building blocks and are responsible for the production of bone and muscle. Balance is critical for proper nerve function, metabolism, detoxification and digestion and performance. When certain amino acids are too high or low, they can cause fatigue, increased cardiovascular risk, and impair mood and cognitive function. Once identified, imbalances can be corrected, helping to prevent many chronic illnesses before they can cause severe and lasting damage.
