Hormone and Thyroid Testing
Continued evidence shows hormonal imbalances may be the root cause of many chronic health issues you could be experiencing. Your hormones should exist in harmony with each other. When levels of each hormone are in the right proportions, body systems are stable. When balance is lost, hormone deficiencies and excesses can cause chronic symptoms and disorders, and raise risks for disease.
A whole host of symptoms may signify an imbalance: Fatigue, Headaches, Weight Gain, Irritability, Infertiliy, Mood swings, Loss of libido (sex drive), Depression, Liver Imbalance & Digestive issues.
The symptoms of hormonal shifts occurring in our bodies can be very strong and can even make you feel out of control at times. For the Christian, spiritual chaos is often directly related to physiological chaos: sugar, hormonal, cortisol and nutritional imbalances.
When patients have hormone-related symptoms, it is usually not a clear-cut case of one hormone level being abnormal, or even one hormone system. In fact, because of the role that hormones play as chemical messengers to wake up the genome in specific target tissues throughout the body, it makes sense that all hormone systems work in concert with each other to maintain a state of balance. In a similar manner, the adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones work in harmony, and when one or more of the hormones in any one system become unbalanced, this affects the harmony or balance of the whole system.
Comprehensive male and female hormone test panels are offered. Both end-point steroid hormones as well as precursor hormones are included so the precise place of imbalance in the complicated hormonal cascade can be pinpointed.
Thyroid hormones directly regulate every cell in our body as most basic functions like metabolism, emotions and thinking. We also test several proteins that affect thyroid function as well as antibodies to thyroid which can detect autoimmunity (when the immune system attacks healthy tissue) and your levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
Micronutrient testing (patented technology) measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within the white blood cells. These tests allow nutritional assessmentfor a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases including celiac disease, addiction, arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders and metabolic disorders. Our tests measure the biochemical function of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, providing a powerful clinical assessment tool for patients.
This same technology also provides a total antioxidant function test (SPECTROX™) which assesses the ability of cells to resist damage caused by free radicals and other forms of oxidative stress. Due to the considerable number of cellular antioxidants with extensive interactions, redundancies, repair and recharging capabilities, measuring total function is the most accurate and clinically useful way to assess the capacity to resist oxidative damage.
Micronutrient deficiencies undermine a person’s immune function. Since the highly complex immune system is dependent on the intracellular availability of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, correcting specific micronutrient deficiencies typically raises overall immunity helping to correct the aforementioned conditions.
The Immuno Bloodprint®
This simple, affordable blood test can help identify food intolerances or hidden food allergies that may be the cause of chronic conditions such as arthritis, attention deficit (and hyperactivity) disorders, autism, chronic fatigue, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, otitis media and more.
The Immuno Bloodprint®, based on a highly respected technique called the IgG Enzyme Linked Immunosorbant Assay (ELISA), can identify over 154 'trigger' foods causing intolerance. Since white blood cells only remember the foods that were a problem for approximately two months, in most cases, the reactive foods can be gradually re-introduced into the diet.
Additional testing can also be done for Candida Albicans (an overgrowth of a natural yeast that occurs in the body); gliadin sensitivities (the protein component of gluten); and Helicobacter Pylori (the causative agent for most cases of gastritis, duodenitis and ulcers). IgE testing for harmful environmental substances such as molds, dust, weeds, pet dander, etc., can also be performed.
Within 72 hours, comprehensive test results are provided in a complete package that includes a report detailing the detected hidden food allergies along with a personal wallet-size reference card; a wide list of foods that can be enjoyed; recommended meal plans; helpful shopping hints; and recipes.
Neurotransmitter/ Brain Chemistry/ Adrenal Testing
Amino acid therapy is a term used to describe the use of supplemental amino acids to help balance brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) and other aspects of the physiology. From evidence-based personalized testing, an individualized amino acid supplementation protocol is devised to improve the quantity and ratios of neurotransmitters in the brain. Ms Rajput implements neuronutrient dense food/dietary protocols specific to condition.
Telomere testing reveals a window to your cellular age. Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to date to assess biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal change in the telomere. Serial evaluation of telomere length is an indicator of how rapidly one ages relative to a normal population.
Does diet have any effect on telomere length and repair? An inflammatory diet, or one that increases oxidative stress, will shorten telomeres faster. This would include refined carbohydrates, fast foods, processed foods, sodas, artificial sweeteners, trans and saturated fats. A diet with a large amount and variety of antioxidants that improves oxidative defense and reduces oxidative stress will slow telomere shortening.
Psychology, Spirituality, and Longevity
Absorbing yourself in Truth, God’s Word, also prevents stress because it’s God’s own life power to sustain, maintain and re-calibrate the entire human organism: soul, body and spirit. Going beyond lab tests and supplements, healing, transformation and attaining the best health possible comes through relationship with God, life itself.
