The following tests are available to patients.

Food sensitivity/Allergy testing
When a specific allergy is present, the immune system reacts by releasing cells called antibodies to neutralize the allergen. Blood tests are used to measure antibody levels to various foods and environmental factors. Both IgE (the antibodies that produce immediate allergic reactions) and IgG (the antibodies that produce delayed allergic responses) are measured.

Saliva Hormone testing and dutch Urine Steroid Hormone testing
Saliva and urine hormone testing is useful for uncovering hormone imbalances. Hormones that are tested include cortisol (the “stress” hormone), estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and testosterone. Urine testing includes hormones metabolites (breakdown products) which give additional information about a patient's health and risk factors.

Other tests
Standard blood tests are also available. These include thyoid panels, cholesterol panels, mineral testing (including iron), liver and kidney function tests, vitamins and minerals (vitamin D, B12, magnesium, etc...), blood glucose and insulin, autoimmune markers and more. Standard urine and stool tests are also available.
