• Environmental – Nutritional

  • Hair Element Analysis

    Hair element analysis measures the levels of essential and toxic elements in hair, providing about a two to three month view of nutrition and toxic element exposure. Elements include essential nutrients like chromium, iron and magnesium; or toxic like arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. Some toxic elements can affect the nervous system; potentially causing tremors, memory impairment,  depression, anxiety, nerve pain, learning disabilities, hyperactivity, or juvenile delinquency. A lack of essential elements can lead to health problems like: memory impairment, learning disabilities, decreased ability to cope with stress and fatigue.

  • Urine Element Analysis

    Urine element analysis measures the levels of essential and toxic elements in urine. Elements include essential nutrients like chromium, iron and magnesium; and toxic elements like arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. Some toxic elements can affect the nervous system; potentially causing tremors, memory impairment,  depression, anxiety, nerve pain, learning disabilities, hyperactivity, or juvenile delinquency. A lack of essential elements can lead to health problems like: memory impairment, learning disabilities, decreased ability to cope with stress and fatigue.

  • Iodine Plus

    In addition to its critical role in central nervous system devlopment, iodine is essential for proper thyroid function. A lack of iodine may contribute to hypothyroid symptoms including: depression, constipation, dry skin, fatigue and weight gain. Having adequate iodine intake may be protective against thyroid, breast and prostate cancers.  Having excess bromine may interfere with the benefits of iodine. Iodine Plus also includes selenium and cadmium levels. Selenium is an essential element that is needed to convert the thyroid hormone T4 into its active form, T3.

  • D-Spot

    In addition to its essential role in bone health, vitamin D3 helps regulate hundreds of other genes. Less than optimal levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D have been associated with mood disorders (depression and anxiety), heart disease (congestive heart failure and high blood pressure), diabetes, increased cancer risk, multiple sclerosis, poor immune function and muscle pain and fatigue. Low 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels have also been associated with increased risk of falls in the elderly, and greater risk of injury in elite athletes.

  • Nutrigenomix

    Nutrigenomics uses genomic tools and genetic information to address issues important to nutrition and health.

  • Fatty Acid Profile

    Having enough omega-3 fatty acids in the blood has been shown to reduce risk for heart disease, help memory and ability to focus, and reduce inflammation. Research also suggests omega-3 fatty acids may help with symptoms of depression.
