Vitamins & Micronutrient Testing
Micronutrient testing has revolutionized preventive personal health care, and our staff provides the latest services on the market today. Micronutrient tests measure the biochemical function of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, providing a powerful clinical assessment tool.
What are Micronutrients?
Micronutrients play an important role in your overall health and wellness. They are chemical elements or substances that are required for the normal growth and development of organisms.
What will your personal Micronutrient test reveal?
Our staff utilizes SpectraCell’s micronutrient testing to scientifically assess the intracellular requirements of your individual micronutrients profile. SpectraCell provides easy-to-read test reports and offers repletion suggestions based on each of your deficiencies.
The report provides easy-to-understand supplement information that explains the role of each nutrient found deficient, deficiency symptoms, how to obtain the nutrient in food, and toxicity and RDI standards for adults.
Before the introduction of Micronutrient Testing, many diagnoses and risk assessments were based on clinical observation and measurements of static levels of certain nutrients, which was not always representative indicators for assessing cell metabolism and utilization.
Bio-identical hormones are manufactured in the lab to have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. Though bio-identical hormones have been around for years, most practitioners are unfamiliar with them. There are several branded versions now available for use in the kind of hormone replacement therapy typical of synthetic hormones. This is often a one-size-fits-all dosage regime.
In our practice, we have had the greatest success with an individualized approach. We begin with laboratory tests of hormone levels (a so-called “hormone panel”). When warranted, we then prescribe a precise dosage of bio-identical estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and/or DHEA that is prepared at a registered compounding pharmacy. Each patient is then monitored carefully through regular follow-up hormone panels to ensure she gets symptom relief at the lowest possible dosage. In the initial stages, we will do a hormone panel every three months. Once balance is restored, we’ll do one panel a year at the time of the annual exam.
