I have established relationships with the following laboratories to help provide accurate, meaningful, and science based nutrition testing to further define and direct your personal protocol.
1) Leap Mediator Release Test is a Food and Chemical Sensitivity Test through Oxford Biomedical Laboratories and is the most effective food sensitivity test and protocol currently available. Leap MRT tests 140 foods and 30 chemicals identifying your non-IgE reactive foods & chemicals that can trigger inflammation which may be contributing to chronic conditions IBS, migraines, fibromyalgia, skin conditions, GERD, anxiety, arthritis, hormone Imbalances and many other conditions. Do you suspect adverse food reactions or have a chronic health condition effected by inflammation, impaired immune system, or leaky gut? I have worked extensively with this test and protocol since 2006. This is one of the most productive personalized strategies to help you plan meals based on non-reactive foods. Effectively begin reducing inflammation, calming your immune system, and healing your gut while improving health. Getting tested is the first step (requires labwork). Next, working with a Certified Leap Therapist (CLT) specializing in the nuances of removing tested reactive foods and chemicals is essential to the success of this program. This food as medicine first approach often reduces other treatment needed. Yale University Public Release - https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2017-09/yu-idf091817.php Due to a layering of nutrient, biochemical and physiological pathways, this is exactly what I am seeing in my practice. Call to schedule your consulation or learn more about how food sensitivities contribute to inflammation. Office: 817-868-9388.
2) Spectracell Laboratory including Comprehensive Micronutrient Testing andTelemere Testing. Both wonderfully informative tests. I would never want to be without them in my work.
Micronutrient Test - Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your white blood cells. This test allows nutritional assessment for a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders and metabolic disorders. Research finds that one third of study participants have at least one nutrient defieciency. www.spectracell.com
Telemere Test - Telomeres are sections of DNA at the end of each chromosome that serve as a cap to your genetic material. Shorter telomeres imply a shorter life span for a cell. Poor diet and chronic stress increases oxidative stress in our body. Excessive oxidative stress will shorten telemere length faster. www.spectracell.com
3) Cyrex Labs - Specializing in Gluten Sensitivities
4) Vibrant America - Comprehensive Wheat and Gluten Testing
Other Labs Based On Need
