Nutrition Testing

Nutrition Testing

I ask clients to provide me with results of existing lab work ordered by their doctors. In most cases that is sufficient.

However, sometimes, addressing underlying nutritional imbalances and identifying personal nutrition requirements necessitates a deeper understanding of an individual’s unique genetics, biochemical makeup, and immune response to foods and chemicals.

In these cases, I offer several types of specialty nutrition testing.

Micronutrient Test

SpectraCell Micronutrient Test measures key micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, antioxidants and metabolites that are linked to health and disease.

Your body needs these micronutrients in order for the body to produce enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development, and good health. This test allows nutritional assessment for general wellness and prevention of chronic diseases.

Genetic Roadmap

PureGenomics Nutrigenomics Report provides a view into your genes how how they might be affecting nutrient balances, health and well-being. This unique individualized nutrition solution uses the data from either 23andme and DNA technology.

Based on your genetic results and I develop nutrition strategies — both whole foods and targeted nutrition supplements — to support your genetic SNPs that may be expressed.

PureGenomics Report and Consultation Includes Genes Related To:

  • Methylation Pathway (including MTHFR)
  • Vitamins, Minerals and Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Detoxification and Antioxidant Defenses
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Glucose Metabolism
  • Metabolism and Weight Management
  • Immune Health
  • Energy and Fitness
  • Exercise Response
  • GI Health
  • Cognitive Health and Memory

Food Sensitivity Testing

Mediator Release Test (MRT) identifies and quantifies delayed-type hypersensitivity (non IgE-mediated) reactions to foods and chemicals. This is not the same as  IgE allergies that Allergy MDs test.  People can have food and chemical sensitivities (reactions and symptoms) without being allergic to them!

As a Certified LEAP Therapist, using the results from the Mediator Release Test (MRT), I design a customized eating plan for you, in several phases, that removes identified food and chemical triggers so your immune system can calm down, and then help you reintroduce safe foods.
