The Gut As Our Window To Health

Food sensitivity—this food sensitivity test is different from a conventional allergy. Allergies create immediate reactions such as swelling or stuffy nose. Food sensitivities create ongoing inflammation that drives chronic symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, and pain. However, we do not always feel all types of inflammation. Inflammation can be a silent player, as it is in heart disease, and will eventually cause different pathologies and conditions. By reducing inflammation with dietary changes, we decrease weight gain and fatigue but also reduce the chances of getting many diseases and even decrease our rate of aging.

                                                        Hormones: The Complex Interactions That Drive Our Machine

Adrenal Stress Testing- Stress drives every condition in our body. By starting with balancing adrenal function you balance the hormone cortisol, but you also improve reproductive hormones such as estrogen and testosterone. Reducing your stress makes you function optimally. Reducing stress is one of the key ways we will live longer and healthier.

Thyroid Hormone Testing-A complete thyroid profile will uncover underlying issues of fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, and pain. Improper thyroid function means we are metabolically worn down and can’t drive the thousands of metabolic reactions that take place every second in our body. Proper thyroid function makes us feel better and reduces our incidence of cancer.

Hormone workup-A hormone works up is more than an estrogen level or testosterone level. A hormone workup includes how our adrenals and thyroid are functioning because these are intimately related to the entire web of sex hormones. A comprehensive analysis of all hormones can help identify the need for bioidentical hormone replacement and also can tell a clinician to avoid that treatment when it isn’t necessary for that individual.  A good hormone work-up will also include oxidative stress or free radical measurements because free radicals damage hormones and make them more dangerous in our body. Hormones are preferentially looked at in the saliva but can sometimes be looked at in the serum as well, depending on the person and the condition.

Oxidative Stress Testing—Oxidative stress markers tell us about free radicals in our body. Free radicals can be thought of as the byproducts of a fire. Free radicals cause cancer, heart disease, contribute to neurologic conditions, and even weight gain. Free radicals damage the mitochondria which drive how long we live. Reducing free radicals is necessary to improve the quality of life and prevent pathology from occurring.

Optimizing Systems in the Body

Cardio/Metabolic Profile—Cardiovascular disease is our number one killer today. Part of the problem is that routine biomarkers such as cholesterol are not very predictive. By measuring parameters such as oxidized LDL which is ten times more predictive of cardiovascular disease than LDL alone, we can catch the process before the disease takes hold. This will also measure adiponectin and leptin which tell the body to burn and store fat. These markers are early warning signs of diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Glycomark is also measured which tells us how the body handles sugar. This will also prevent diabetes and even dementia as the brain is very fragile in the presence of uncontrolled sugar.
