What We Do For Chronic and Metabolic Illness Care?

Comprehensive Analysis:

In our diagnostic approach, we utilize a variety of specialized laboratories to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. Some of the unique labs we employ include:

  • Comprehensive Blood Analysis: This comprehensive blood test provides a detailed analysis of various markers, allowing us to assess overall health, identify nutritional deficiencies, detect inflammation, and evaluate organ function.
  • Organic Acids Test: This test examines the byproducts of metabolism in urine, providing insights into nutrient deficiencies, cellular energy production, neurotransmitter imbalances, gut health, and the presence of microbial overgrowth.
  • Stool Test: Stool analysis helps assess digestive function, gut microbiome composition, and the presence of pathogens, parasites, or imbalances in the gastrointestinal system.
  • DUTCH Hormone Test: The DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) test offers a comprehensive evaluation of hormone levels and their metabolites, providing valuable information about hormonal imbalances and their potential impact on health.
  • Autoimmune Panels: These specialized panels help identify specific autoimmune markers, aiding in the diagnosis and management of autoimmune conditions.
  • Food Sensitivity Panels: These panels assess immune reactions to various foods, helping to identify potential food sensitivities or intolerances that may be contributing to symptoms or inflammation.

Specialized Treatment:

Following our thorough lab analysis and examination, we develop a comprehensive plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan may encompass various elements, including:

  • Nutritional and lifestyle advice: We provide guidance on optimizing your diet and making lifestyle modifications that support your overall health and address specific conditions or symptoms
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy: This therapy involves breathing in pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, which can promote healing, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue repair.
  • Professional grade supplements: We may recommend high-quality supplements to support your nutritional needs, address deficiencies, and support specific areas of health.
