Are you are suffering from anxiety, depression, difficulty sleeping, joint pain, fatigue, carbohydrate cravings, lack of motivation or focus? This may be a neurotransmitter imbalance and needs to be tested.

It makes perfect sense to test neurotransmitters before starting therapy for mood disorders. We wouldn’t treat high cholesterol, thyroid dysfunction or diabetes without lab information. When the neurotransmitters become imbalanced, the stage is set for many of the physical and emotional complaints and chronic ailments for which you seek help. Lab results will indicate which NT are imbalanced and the patient can then treated as an individual using natural targeted nutrient therapies. These are very effective and they do not have the side effects associated with pharmaceutical drugs, such as potential addictions, drug-drug interactions or withdrawal symptoms.

Neurotransmitters (NT) are biochemicals produced in the brain that affects us mentally, emotionally and physically.

When this system is balanced, we experience the harmony that constitutes our health and sense of well-being, including the nervous, endocrine, digestive, and immune systems.

Food Allergies & Gluten Sensitivities

Do you have heartburn, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), muscle aches and stiffness, anxiety, depression, fatigue, skin itching, inability to focus, palpitations or mental confusion? You could have food allergies. Many people needlessly endure years of illness with numerous chronic illness and symptoms without knowing that delayed food allergies are causing these conditions. Some food allergies are more subtle. These types of food allergies (sometimes also referred to as a food sensitivity or intolerance), involve IgG antibodies and are measurable by an IgG food allergy test. IgG antibodies are associated with hidden and delayed food reactions that can initiate, worsen or contribute to inflammation and many different health problems. Find out if you have food allergies.

Hidden food allergies can cause inflammation such as sinusitis, joint pain, gastroenteritis, headaches, and muscle stiffness. They can also cause anxiety, depression, insomnia and lack of energy. One blood test can test 90 foods and determine if you have hidden delayed IgG food allergies.

Gluten sensitivity causes inflammation, which can create intestinal permeability, autoimmune disease and lead to chronic conditions. Testing is critical. How can you prevent something or heal a condition if you do not know the underlying cause or issue? Specialized labs are accurate in diagnosing this condition.

Are you experiencing irritable bowel syndrome and had a negative stool test?

Gastrointestinal (GI) testing is a must when patients have symptoms such as heartburn (GERD), reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, diarrhea, or constipation. Specific tests can find the underlying cause of these symptoms. These symptoms just don’t “happen”, they are caused by something.

Specific comprehensive stool testing can check for bacteria, yeast, parasites, digestion, and absorption of nutrients.

This specific GI test can identify the root cause of your GI symptoms. It is far superior to specifically treat the underlying cause rather than just take a supplement, an over the counter preparation or a pharmaceutical drug which may or may not be helpful. The inflammation in the GI affects the entire body. The GI tract is so important. It not only digests our food and absorbs your nutrients; it also contains 80% of the immune system. The GI tract also has as many brain cell (neurons) as the brain and produces neurotransmitters. GI dysfunction can create mood disorders. Make sure your GI system is healthy!

Comprehensive Chemistry Labs

You need more than a routine blood chemistry panel to find the root cause of an illness. The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) is a frequently ordered panel of tests that gives your doctor important information about the current status of your kidneys, liver, and electrolyte and acid/base balance as well as of your blood sugar and blood proteins.

In addition to the CMP Dr. Norling would include complete blood count, lipid panel, C – reactive protein, homocysteine, thyroid function tests, Vitamin D, PSA, Hg A1C or other labs as indicated. Vitamin D levels are important to test as low levels can contribute to chronic illness, major health problems, and symptoms. However, many times this routine lab work comes back “normal” but the patient is sick. That is why it is important to use specialized testing to find the underlying cause of the illness or symptoms.
