Lab Services

Specialty lab testing is available to complement your nutrition care. Recommendations will be made once your case is thoroughly assessed at the Initial Consultation.

Food Sensitivity Testing

Food and food-chemical sensitivities remain an under-addressed area in conventional medicine. Many chronic conditions may be made worse by these sensitivities.

The Mediator Release Test (MRT) is a blood test patented by Oxford Biomedical Technologies. It was designed to not only measure which foods and food-chemicals may be causing an inflammatory response, but it also measures the degree. It is superior to IgG (Immunoglobulin G) food sensitivity testing that is often advertised to the general public. It also takes any "guess work" out of traditional elimination diet protocols commonly used. 

Once MRT results are obtained and analyzed by your dietitian, an individualized diet protocol is designed for you. The goal is to calm the immune system and reduce inflammation. Once this happens, your negative symptoms will usually improve or may disappear altogether!


Nutrient Testing

  • Vitamin, Mineral, Antioxidant blood testing


Nutrient deficiencies can happen for various reasons. A poor or limited diet, malabsorption, medications, food sensitivities, and certain chronic diseases can all play a role. When measuring standard blood levels, low levels can often be overlooked. Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your white blood cells and is a superior tool for many vitamin and mineral levels. It helps to maximize your overall nutrition and takes the guess work out of whether or not supplementation is needed. Recommendations for supplementation and/or food sources to regain healthy levels will be given.


Gastrointestinal (Digestion) Testing

There are multiple options for testing to help with getting to the root cause of your GI symptoms when diet changes aren't enough. Some of the additional testing offered through our office include:

  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) breath testing
  • Sucrose, Fructose, and Lactose malabsorption breath testing
  • Stool testing 

Athletic Testing

  • Sweat Testing

Knowing the electrolyte composition of your sweat can help optimize performance and prevent heat related injuries. Recommendations for what to eat and drink before, during, and after exercise can be individualized just for you! Read more about the Benefits of Sweat Testing


Nutrition Related Genetic Testing

Research is expanding every day on the involvement of our genetic SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) and how they effect our health. Nutrition genomics can help to both solve current health issues and prevent future health problems.
