Most imbalances in functionality can be addressed; some can be completely restored to optimum function, and others can be substantially improved. Prevention is paramount! Virtually every complex, chronic disease is preceded by long-term disturbances in functionality. We uncover and treat the root causes! Functional Medicine expands our tool kit!
You become our partner! As a patient, you become an active partner with us. This allows you to really be in charge of improving your own health and changing the outcome of disease. We offer an array of diagnostic testing to gather as much information about you as possible to detect the underlying causes of disease and develop a treatment plan especially for you.
This is the most comprehensive blood panel to check your overall current health status.Lipid Panel, Vitamins, Minerals, Hormones, Heavy Metals, etc. We are looking at a blueprint of your body. The Functional Medicine Blood Panel identifies imbalances that may be the root cause of symptoms or disease that you experience. This test also identifies red flags of disease that may be present in the future that we can start treating NOW. This test is for everyone, at any age!
Measures over 125 key nutrient biomarkers and ratios that can help identify nutritional imbalances that may be a root cause of complex chronic conditions.
This test evaluates:
Analysis allows for personalized nutrition and supplementation and increases the resolution of complex chronic conditions.
The clinical indications are:
In-body scale analyzes your complete body composition to determine exactly how much extra fat you are holding onto or if you have any muscle deficiencies. It also measures visceral fat, the fat surrounding vital organs such as your heart and liver, your basal metabolic rate, lean body mass or muscle and more.
Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal “fraying” when a cell replicates. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication, the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die - a normal biological process. Telomere Tests can determine the length of a patient’s telomeres in relation to the patient’s age.
TheIvyGene Cancer Blood Test measures the methylation status of cell-free DNA at target sites that have been demonstrated to be hyper methylated when certain cancers are present. Cancer Blood Test results are reported as a quantitativeIvyGene Score, which indicates the methylation status of the target sites. TheIvyGene Score is calculated as a composite average of cell-free DNA that is methylated at the target sites as a fraction of the total cell-free DNA present
Hormones control the whole body! They affect mood, sleep, weight gain, energy, sex drive, etc. Imbalances are common as we age, menopause, andropause, thyroid dysfunction. Hormone tests your Thyroid, estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisol, dhea, pregnenolone, insulin. Find out if you have hormonal imbalances and treat them as natural as possible!
This testis for everyone! Identify if your body is “attacking” the food you are eating and creating an immune response in the body. The test detects both IgG, IgE antibodies and Immune Complexes.
This test evaluates markers for digestion, absorption, immunology, gut microbiology, and gut metabolic markers. It also tests gold standard O&P (ova & parasite)and EIA (Enzyme Immunoassay) for the identification of common parasites.Indications include bloating, gas, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, skin conditions, low immune function, fatigue, depression, anxiety, insomnia, and fibromyalgia, an autoimmune disease.
Genova’sSIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) Profiles are noninvasive breath tests that capture exhaled hydrogen and methane gases following patient ingestion of a lactulose solution to evaluate bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine. Conditions commonly associated with SIBO include IBS, IBD, CeliacDisease, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Rosacea, Parkinson’s Disease, and Obesity.
Integrated Genetic Solutions is the first personalized medical solution that uses each patient’s unique combination of DNA genetic mutations and blood analysis(hormones, vitamins, and minerals) to identify and treat body chemistry imbalances. This dynamic process is designed to maintain or optimize ever-changing body chemistry over time. Each patient’s complex tapestry of hormones, vitamins, and minerals requires extensive analysis and complex mathematical computation in order to generate an accurate and personalized treatment program; all of which can take over 20 hours per patient when done by hand.
The IGS personalized solution starts with each patient undergoing laboratory-certified DNA and blood testing. Once completed and uploaded to the IGS software platform, doctors are then able to isolate each patient’s specific body chemistry imbalances. These imbalances are often the underlying causes of poor mental acuity, reduced energy, weight gain, and a weakened immune response.After these imbalances are identified, the IGS platform will provide a comprehensive set of recommendations to treat each imbalance. These recommendations include hormones, pre-hormones, fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins, minerals, and other supplements.
What cancer(s) are you predisposed to? Understand your risk for hereditary cancer. The MyriadCancer Screen determines whether you inherited a mutation in one of more than25 genes that can significantly increase your risk of certain cancers such as breast, ovarian, colon, pancreatic, prostate, thyroid and others. Help your family understand their risk as they will have the same mutations. Take action to prevent cancer or detect it early.
Cardiovascular disease currently affects 1 in 3 adult Americans, the “silent killer.” 50% of patients who die suddenly from a heart attack had normal LDL cholesterol levels. Boston Heart Diagnostics research and science have advanced technology which goes far beyond standard cholesterol screening. Blood tests are broken down into 4 categories, lipids, inflammation, metabolic and genetics. This test identifies the individual risk of heart disease, best medication options, and overall heart health.
Did you know that you can measure your excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters?Serotonin, GABA, Dopamine, Taurine, Glycine, Cortisol. Chemical imbalances that are responsible for our fatigue, lack of motivation, depression, insomnia, bipolar disorder, attention deficit, anger, and impulsivity can now be measured!
Heavy metal toxicity can be the root cause of many symptoms that far too often goes misdiagnosed.
20 Heavy Metals are tested in urine after a “chelating agent” is given through IV. Heavy metals such as Mercury, Arsenic, Lead, Copper, Aluminum are tested, and exposure is linked with many adverse health effects and chronic disease.
Mycotoxins are extremely toxic by-products of mold growth and are generally associated with more significant health problems than the mold itself. Mycotoxins found in the home include 1. Aflatoxins, which are the most potent natural cancer-causing agents known to man; 2. Trichothecenes, which have been used as chemical warfare agents; and 3. Gliotoxins, known to suppress the human immune system. Mycotoxins are also known to be transmitted from mother to child through breast milk. The RealTime Lab Mycotoxin test panel can detect 15 of the most common and toxic Mycotoxins in human urine, and has been prescribed by over 1500 health care professionals in the U.S., Europe, andAustralia.
IGeneX covers a wider spectrum of Lyme and TBRF Borrelia species. Typical diagnostic tests for Lyme can provide useful information by detecting antibodies for Lyme, but they do not provide the whole picture like IGeneX. More relevant strains of Borrelia species and other associated tick-borne pathogens are tested.
We offer full body sonogram scans to detect anything we cannot see unless we look further. These sonogram scans include thyroid, abdomen, carotid, joint, vein, breast, pelvic, prostate, and echocardiogram. With this information we can give you a complete whole-body approach for your health.
