How can you find something if you do not look for it? If you don’t find it and correct it, the symptoms continue and risks for illnesses increase. Many patients suffer from anxiety, depression, insomnia, joint pain, lack motivation, fatigue, crave carbohydrates, and have low libido. Routine labs often do not find the underlying cause of these symptoms. Testing neurotransmitters; serotonin, GABA, dopamine, nor-epinephrine, epinephrine, glutamate and cortisol is essential. Based on the test results an individual can be treated with targeted nutrient therapies to correct the imbalance and feel better. These are not pharmaceutical drugs which are often plagued with side effects.
These symptoms can also be caused by a hidden IgG food allergy or sensitivity. One blood test can test 90 different foods. By removing these foods the body can decrease inflammation and the symptoms begin to disappear.
Many symptoms can also be caused by a hormonal imbalance. Testing for estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, neurotransmitters, and adrenal function can give you and your physician the information needed to treat you. Balancing your hormones is critical to your happiness, moods, and physical well being.
Patients suffering from GI disturbances often have been prescribed a drug that only treats the tip of the iceberg. Specific tests such as IgG food allergy or H. Pylori testing can determine the cause of GERD or heartburn. Many patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome have had stool tests that are negative. Comprehensive specialized stool tests that check the DNA of bacteria, parasites, yeasts and other organisms find the underlying cause of IBS. The test also gives information on digestion and absorption of nutrients. There is a reason individuals suffer from GI disturbances…we look for the cause.
