The test provides the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available. It measures functional deficiencies at the cellular level. It is an assessment of how well the body utilizes 35 vitamins, minerals, amino acids/fatty acids, antioxidants and metabolites, while converting the body’s need for these micronutrients that enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development and good health. This test provides the basis of a personalized, functional approach to addressing a broad variety of clinical conditions including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, various immunological disorders, metabolic disorders and micronutrient deficiencies.
Igenex Testing for Tick Born Illness
Igenex is a blood test that looks for other strains of tick-borne pathogens. Some of these pathogens exhibit Lyme-like symptoms but may be due to a different tick-borne disease that may require a different treatment method than traditional Lyme Disease. It is important to test for co-infections because nearly one infour ticks infected with the Lyme Disease pathogen also carry another pathogen. We perform this blood test in our office.

Invitae Genetic Testing
Invitae is a saliva or blood test that is used to identify genes for either a specific medical condition or a panel of genetic conditions. Invitae is able to screen for many different types of cancers as well as cardiac conditions. It allows us the ability to be very specific with genes and therefore identify medical conditions that we may not have otherwise been aware of. This allows us to advocate more effectively for our patients.
