Lab Testing Menu
All lab tests include a 45-minute phone consultation for an in-depth result interpretation with a plan of action for nutrition support to optimize health and prevent disease risk. Note: this testing is not to diagnose or treat disease.
Lab analysis is completed by Genova Diagnostics, industry leading laboratory testing.
Complete Nutrition Test Nutreval: an advanced nutritional analysis designed to reveal nutritional imbalances or inadequacies. NutrEval evaluates the functional need for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, digestive support, and other select nutrients. Nutreval can help to plan nutrient recommendations based on biochemical individuality

Food Sensitivity Test: helps identify those with true IgE-mediated allergies as well as IgG-mediated food sensitivities. This immunological test measures IgG antibody levels to 87 foods, and total IgE. This antibody food sensitivity test is ideal for those who may suffer from delayed reactions/sensitivities to specific foods. IgG4 antibodies are associated with delayed hypersensitivity reactions, which are the most common—yet most difficult to detect— type of food reaction. These delayed or “hidden” food reactions can cause a variety of chronic symptoms.

GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Analysis: an advanced stool test that provides immediate, actionable information for the management of gut health. Using the most innovative technologies available, GI Effects assesses three critical areas of gut health: digestive function, gut inflammation, and the gut microbiome—areas affecting not only GI health, but overall health as well. Imbalances in the microbiome have been associated in the scientific literature with a wide variety of common illnesses including, but not limited to: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, celiac and other malabsorption disorders, mood disorders, autoimmune, and autism.

Complete Hormone Test: this profile assesses parent hormones and their metabolites as well as key metabolic pathways, provides insight into the contribution that sex hormones may have in those with hormone-related complaints, and helps assess disease risk associated with elevated estrogen metabolites. This test provides insight into the impact that shifting hormone levels may play in men and women. Symptoms include the following: weight gain, anxiety, fatigue, muscle mass loss, muscle weakness, low libido and sexual performance issues, hair loss, sleep disturbances, brain fog, mood instability, hot flashes, and/or vaginal dryness.
In addition to nutritionally supporting management around hormone-dependent symptoms, the profile provides valuable insight into disease risk for hormone-associated cancers (breast, prostate) and osteoporosis.

Comprehensive Thyroid Assessment: a hormone test that provides a thorough analysis of thyroid hormone metabolism. This test analyzes serum levels of TSH, free T4, free T3, reverse T3, anti-TG antibodies, and anti-TPO antibodies to assess central and peripheral thyroid function, as well as thyroid auto-immunity. Thyroid hormones are essential and primary regulators of the body's metabolism. Hormone imbalances can affect virtually every metabolic process in the body, exerting significant effects on mood and energy level. Symptoms of thyroid imbalances may include: fatigue, depression, coldness, constipation, poor skin, headaches, PMS, dysmenorrhea, fluid retention, weight gain, anxiety/panic attacks, decreased memory and concentration, muscle and joint pain, and/or low sex drive.
