Specialized Naturopathic Medical Testing: 

Hormonal Testing: 

Hormone tests are completed through saliva, blood or urine samples.

  • Comprehensive Female Hormone Profiles – This panel provides an initial overview of hormone status, analyzing Estradiol, Progesterone, DHEA-S, Testosterone, 4 point Cortisol, and a full Thyroid Panel including TSH, Free T3, Free T4 and Thyroid Antibodies. 
  • Comprehensive Female Fertility Profile – Profiles include FSH, LH, Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA-S, Diurnal Cortisol, Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, and a full thyroid panel including TSH, Free T3, Free T4 and Thyroid Antibodies. This panel includes, the thyroid and the adrenal gland, which may be overlooked in other infertility tests. 
  • Comprehensive Male Hormone Profile – This test includes Testosterone, DHEA-S, Estradiol, 4 point diurnal cortisol, Sex hormone binding globulin, PSA (Prostate specific antigen), and a full thyroid panel including Free T3 Free T4, TSH, and Thyroid Antibodies. 
  • Antimullerian Hormone (AMH) – AMH Levels are thought to reflect the size of the remaining egg supply, or ovarian reserve. AMH levels are often elevated in PCOS. 
  • Comprehensive Thyroid Profile – The Thyroid Profile (free T4, free T3, TSH, and TPO) can indicate a thyroid dysfunction. 
  • Dried Urine Iodine -Iodine is an essential component of the thyroid hormones T4 and T3. About 90% of iodine consumed from any source (e.g., diet, supplements, medication) is eliminated in urine within 24-48 hours. This test may be an important one to add to comprehensive Thyroid panel. 
  • Diurnal Cortisol Stress Test or Adrenal Fatigue Stress Test – Analyzes saliva samples throughout the day for levels of cortisol, providing important information about adrenal health. 

Immunological Testing: 

  • Inflammatory Cytokines TH1 TH2 TH17
  • Natural Killer Cell Assay and Activity
  • Lymphocyte Subset Testing
  • Autoimmune Markers: Anti Thyroid Antibodies, ANA and more

Gastrointestinal Testing: 

  • Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis: used to evaluate digestion, absorption, pancreatic function, and inflammation, bacterial balance, yeast, and parasite infection. 
  • Comprehensive Parasitology: evaluates stool for presence of parasites and levels of beneficial flora, imbalanced flora, pathogenic bacteria, and yeast. 
  • Intestinal Permeability
  • H Pylori Stool Antigen
  • Vaginosis Profile

Nutritional and Metabolic Diagnostic Testing: 

  • Organic Acids – Organic acids are metabolic intermediates produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity. 
  • Neurotransmitter Oxidative Stress/Inflammation Testing – This panel includes neurotransmitters and other biomarkers associated with inflammation.
  • Essential Fats
  • Simple Food Allergens  
  • Celiac Disease 
  • Comprehensive Naturopathic Cardiovascular Profile 
  • Hair Analysis of toxic heavy metal deposition in body tissues 

 Other Specialized Naturopathic Medical Tests: 

  • Testing for detoxification: also tests for neurological and cardiovascular markers.
  • Metabolic testing for cardiovascular disease
  • Cellular energy profile

Allergy Testing: 

  • ALCAT Food/Chemical Sensitivity Testing
  • Celiac Profile – Immunological testing and monitoring
