|Sleep disturbances, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, sugar dysregulation, allergies, autoimmune disorders, depression, ADD/HD?||Adrenal Stress Index (Saliva)||This saliva test evaluates stress, insulin measurements, and adrenal capacity. It tests the levels of cortisol, DHEA, Hydroxyprogesterone, secretory IgA, and gliadin antibodies. Adrenal stress has an effect on energy production, muscle and joint function, bone health, immune health, sleep quality, skin regeneration, thyroid function, and grain intolerance. The test assists with the diagnosis and treatment plan development for chronic pain and fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, sugar dysregulation, allergies and autoimmune disorders, and depression or AD/HD.|
|Women: Weight gain, infertility, PMS, endometriosis, fibroids, difficult menstrual cycles, menopausal symptoms?||Female Hormone Panel or the Expanded Female Hormone Panel (Saliva)||The FHP is used to identify menstrual cycle imbalances and is useful with women who have had weight gain, infertility, endometriosis, fibroids, PMS, spotting etc. Saliva hormone levels correlate more closely with clinical symptoms than serum hormones levels. Useful for menopausal women with hot flashes, low libido, depression, insomnia, bleeding irregularities. The EFHP panel tests levels of Progesterone, DHEA, DHEA-S, Androstenedione, Estrone, and 2 kinds of Testosterone, along with FSH and LH. This test evaluates hormone levels, and allows the practitioner to develop more individually-tailored treatment plans.|
|Men: Tired, lack of energy, depression, lack of interest in sex?||Extended Male Hormone Panel (Saliva)||Measures 8 key hormones vital to men's health: Progesterone, DHEA, DHEA-S, Androstenedione, Estrone, and 2 kinds of Testosterone, along with FSH and LH.|
|Concerns about Bone Density, Osteoporosis and Estrogen levels?||Estronex Kit with Bone Reabsorption and OH Ratio (Urine)||The Bone Reabsorption test measures deoxypyridinoline in urine, and thus identifies accelerated bone breakdown; predicts the probability of bone loss without therapy; and monitors the progress of therapy. The Estronex portion of the test measures estrogen metabolites (the ratio of good-to-bad estrogen) and can aid in the prevention of estrogen-sensitive cancers.|

Been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD or autism, or other neurological issue?||NutrEval (Blood/Urine) or Optimal Nutritional Evaluation (O.N.E.-Urine)||NutrEval: Provides a view into the body's cellular metabolic processes, gastrointestinal function, and neurotransmitter processing. It evaluates the body's level of oxidative injury, as well as identifies short-term toxic metal exposure. Assesses fatty acid levels that affect cellular communication and inflammation. This test is a must for those with autism or ADD diagnosis, and includes the ONE Test described below (Vitamin D assessment is an additional option for this test). O.N.E.: Evaluates the overall nutritional needs by analyzing amino acids, gastrointestinal function, cellular energy production, neurotransmitter processing, and vitamin/mineral needs. Also evaluates the body's antioxidant reserves and the presence of oxidative injury (Vitamin D assessment is an additional option for this test).|
