Among our various tools and expertise, we utilize a specialized, advanced-training technique called Nutrition Response Testing. This is an advanced analysis that can help determine exactly what is the proper nutrition supplementation for you at that point in time. This technique may also uncover certain food and chemical allergies, or immune challenges that may be decreasing your health. We are also able to assess the specific organ, gland or body system that may be weak and then determine the right nutrition to return you to more optimal health. This helps eliminate any guessing or confusion as to which supplements are appropriate and beneficial for your body.

Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, Cortisol, and Iodine.Why Test Hormones?
Hormones are powerful molecules essential for maintaining physical and mental health. We frequently think of estrogen as being a female hormone, and testosterone as being a male hormone. But men AND women make both, plus several more that need to be in balance for optimum health. An imbalance of any one hormone can throw your physical and mental health out of balance, causing aggravating and even serious health problems.
One size does not fit all when it comes to hormones! For decades western medicine has prescribed Hormone Replacement Therapy as if everyone needed the same thing and the same amount. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your hormones are like your fingerprints and in order to achieve optimal health, you need to know what your specific imbalances are.
There are several ways to test for hormones(saliva, serum and urine), but the state-of-the-art method is through saliva. This is because only the active portions of hormones are measured and it is these portions that determine how individuals feel. So if you are seeking bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT), you’ll need to know active hormone levels. In addition, if using a topical (transdermal) hormone preparation for treatment, saliva testing is the most accurate tool to measure and monitor hormone status.
