Leaky Gut and Dysbiosis Running Rampant! The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with parasitology x’s 3 is useful for those who might be suffering with: Gastrointestinal Symptoms, Autoimmune Disease, IBD/IBS, Inflammation, Food Sensitivities, Nutritional Deficiencies, Joint Pain, Cognitive Decline and Traumatic Head Injury.
This blood test is used to measure copper levels. Adequate levels of copper are critical for the production of neurotransmitters, energy, myelin, bone and connective tissue production, immune function and the production of blood.
This blood test is used to evaluate cortisol levels approximately 6-8 hours after waking. Cortisol is a very potent glucocorticoid hormone that is released from the adrenal cortex. We need this hormone in order to have a healthy immune system, to metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fat, and to help regulate healthy serum glucose levels.
Most cytokines can be generally characterized as pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory, depending on their primary effects on immune responses.
Immune responses are often further characterized by the type of T helper (Th) cell involved.
“It is now widely recognized that the gut – and especially the gut microbiome – plays a critical role in regulating immune function, and has been shown to affect circulating cytokines such IL-6, TNF-alpha, and IL-17.”
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) testing is used to determine whether someone with signs and symptoms has an active CMV infection. Sometimes it may be ordered to help determine whether someone had a prior CMV infection.

A D-dimer is a blood test to help evaluate for possible blood clots. A D-dimer measures the tendency of blood to clot inappropriately. A D-dimer may be used to evaluate possible health threats such as a stroke, DVT (deep vein thrombosis), PE (pulmonary embolism) and arterial plaque rupture.
This blood test measures Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) levels. DHEA a natural steroidal hormone made in the adrenal glands, gonads and in the brain. DHEA is a precursor hormone to cortisol, testosterone and estrogen and is the most plentiful steroid hormone in the body.
The Implant Metals Profile tests the circulating blood levels of the six metals that are most commonly associated with orthopedic and dental metal prostheses or implants. The metal debris may be associated with excessive physical wear or corrosion of the metal alloys. The greatest release of the metals occurs when prostheses entail metal-on-metal (M/M) bearing surfaces. Many studies have shown that the released metal debris may be associated with localized tissue damage to bone and soft tissue, sensitivity reactions, and remote adverse effects on normal physiological and biochemical functions. The reported blood metal levels should not be solely used to make conclusions regarding the integrity of metals prosthesis devices.
This blood test measures Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels in the blood. DHT is a very active form of testosterone in men and is required for male sexual development and function. Aging men tend to have higher levels of DHT, which lead to problems such as hair loss and prostate dysfunction.
Online Lab Testing: DNA Methylation Pathway Profile allows clinicians to screen their patients for a variety of genetic changes (single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs) that may impact the function of important biochemical processes such as methionine metabolism, detoxification, hormone balance and Vitamin D function. The presence or absence of SNPs may modify disease risk. The risks may be reduced by lifestyle changes, and inefficient biochemical processes can be supported by diet and nutritional supplements to maximize the functions of metabolic pathways.
