Micronutrient Test

This is my #1 recommended lab test. Read on to find out why this test is so important.

The micronutrient test is so valuable because it provides you with the following information:

  • It measures not only extracellular levels but also intracellular nutrient levels
  • It shows short term nutritional status (past few days)
  • It shows long term nutritional status (roughly 3-4 months)
  • It shows your omega 3 to omega 6 ratio
  • It can help identify deficiencies of key nutrients
  • It can show if you are over supplementing, which can lead to toxicity
  • It allows for targeted, intelligent supplementation
  • It can show potential absorption issues

The bottom line is this, test, don’t guess! Knowing your intracellular and extracellular levels is foundational to your health. I have had dozens and dozens of clients bring bags of supplements in asking if they should be taking them. I ask if they’ve been tested for micronutrient levels and the answer is almost always no.

GUT ZOOMER TEST

Do you suffer from digestive distress? Read on to find out why this test is for you!

The Gut Zoomer test from Vibrant America is in a league of its own when it comes to measuring how things are working in the digestive tract. This is one of the tests I recommend everyone have done because everyone benefits from it.

What’s so important about this test is it provides ACTIONABLE information, so it doesn’t leave you asking, “now what?”

If you suffer from any of the following issues – this test is for you!

  • Autoimmune Issues
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome/Irritable Bowel Disease
  • Celiac Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Skin Issues (Acne, Eczema, Dermatitis, etc.)
  • Fatigue
  • Gas & Bloating
  • Indigestion (Heartburn)
  • Leaky Gut
  • GERD
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Diarrhea or Constipation, or both!

When it comes to your health, test, DON’T GUESS!

FOOD SENSITIVITY TEST

Tired of elimination diets? Take the guesswork out of what you need to eliminate with a food sensitivity test! 

Do I or don’t I? Sometimes I feel OK when I eat wheat or dairy, other times it feels like a war going on inside after eating them. This food sensitivity test is something I recommend for EVERYONE!
This is a great test because it provides you with actionable information. Typical lab tests will leave you with more questions than answers. This test makes planning an elimination diet much easier because it takes the guesswork out of what foods are problematic for you.
This test measures both your IGG and IGA immune response to foods. Immunoglobulin G (IGG) is usually associated with an immune response that is targeted towards pathogens. This means if you test high for an IGG response to food protein, your body is treating that food protein like an invader. Immunoglobulin A (IGA) is found in the mucosal layer of our respiratory and GI tracts as well as in blood, saliva, and other secretory fluids.
IGG responses to food proteins can take days and sometimes weeks to show up. Furthermore, you don’t always feel typical sensitivity symptoms such as gas, bloating, gurgling belly, etc. This test makes it easy to see which foods are problematic for you so you can eliminate them from your diet. Test – Don’t Guess!
Wheat Zoomer Test

1 in 7 people in the United States suffers from a wheat-related disorder – are you one of them?

As gluten- and wheat-sensitivity become better recognized in the medical community, the need for accurate and highly sensitive testing to identify affected individuals has grown. Vibrant’s answer is the Wheat Zoomer™.

The Wheat Zoomer aids in the specific recognition of antibodies to wheat peptides – including gluten and non-gluten components, along with antibodies that indicate the presence of intestinal permeability. It is also a highly sensitive peptide-based array designed to detect autoimmune reactions to gluten.

This test can show your propensity for leaky gut and intestinal permeability. I run this test frequently and even though clients say they never feel physical symptoms after eating wheat, this test will show them just how damaging it is to their GI tract. If you want to know if wheat is a problem for you – order this test today!

Total Tox Burden Test

Heavy Metals, Environmental, Mycotoxins (Mold) – all in one test.

One of the most often overlooked aspects of health and wellness is our toxic burden. Our food, air, water, and environment are not the cleanest anymore and our bodies are under near constant assault to try and detoxify.

The Total Tox Burden panel combines the Environmental Toxins, Mycotoxins, and Heavy Metals tests to measure a variety of toxins. We are surrounded by toxins; we can’t escape them. This doesn’t mean you need to live in fear! Our bodies are incredibly capable of detoxifying most things; however, it can get bogged down by a variety of reasons, which leads to a decrease in our ability to detoxify.

The Total Tox Burden test measures 90 different toxins (39 environmental toxins, 31 mold (mycotoxins, and 20 heavy metal toxins). This is the most comprehensive toxin test you can get. If you have stubborn health challenges that you can’t seem to get under control, consider the Total Tox Burden test.

Vitamin D Test

It’s more than a vitamin – it’s more like a hormone with profound health impacts.

Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to increased risk for many common and serious diseases, including some common cancers, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis. Deficiency is also prevalent in infants who are solely breastfed and who do not receive Vitamin D supplementation. Adults of all ages who have darker skin (increased skin melanin) or who always wear sunprotection or limit their outdoor activities, such as homebound elderly persons, are also prone to Vitamin D deficits.

Studies suggest that exposure to sunlight enhances the production of Vitamin D in the skin and prevents many chronic diseases. Seasonal depression is also linked with low levels of Vitamin D, especially during the winter months whensunlight exposure is at a minimum. Vitamin D can also come from supplementation and diet, but there are very few foods (fatty fish, fish liver oil, and eggs) that naturally contain Vitamin D. Several foods claim to be fortified with Vitamin D, but the synthetic form isn’t as potent and doesn’t last as long in the body.

Hormones Test

Hormones are complex, however, modern medicine seems to think they can be adjusted as easily as a thermostat in your home – it’s not that simple!

A comprehensive assessment of individual hormones would provide patterns of imbalances in different hormones, while assessment of their metabolites wouldprovide beneficial information on affected downstream pathways. This would help to treat underlying causes of hormone imbalances and identify disease risks associated with individual hormone metabolites.

Assessment of sex and adrenal hormones is critical to differentiate hormonal imbalance from other common conditions which have overlapping symptoms, such as: chronic infections, toxic exposures, GI malabsorption, hepaticdetoxification problems, and metabolic disorders.

The Vibrant Hormones panel is the most comprehensive panel available to assess the status of hormones in the human body. It eliminates the guesswork of determining root causes of generic and global symptoms and provides practitioners with a clear-cut picture of hormonal imbalances present.

Tickborn Test

Lyme’s disease can mimic a multitude of conditions – take the guesswork out of it and find out which components of Lyme’s disease you are dealing with.

Lyme’s disease is complex and very tough to overcome. Ticks usually need between 24 and 72 hours to effectively transmit any diseases they are carrying and, if found in time on the host, can be removed before they transmit infectious microorganisms to the host.

Because many symptoms of tickborne diseases are generic or mimic other conditions, these diseases often go undiagnosed for months, increasing the suffering and disease progression of the patient.

If you are wondering if you are dealing with Lyme’s disease this is a very accurate test to see what components of Lyme’s you are struggling with, which makes recommendations for support much more effective and accurate.

Heavy Metals Hair Test

Toxins can be found in hair between 200-300 times more concentrated compared to blood or urine.

Heavy metals toxicity caused by increasing levels of pollution and use of chemicals in industry is a growing threat to our health and development of our children. High levels of toxic metals deposited in body tissues and subsequently in the brain, may cause significant developmental and neurological damage.

A Metals Hair Test is ideal for checking current exposure to toxic metals. Hairprovides important information that can assist the practitioner with an early diagnosis of physiological disorders associated with aberrations in essential and toxic element metabolism.

WHY CHOOSE A METALS HAIR TEST?

Extensive research established that scalp hair element levels are related to human systemic levels. The strength of this relationship varies for specific elements, and many researchers consider hair as the tissue of choice for toxic and several nutrient elements. Unlike blood, hair element levels are notregulated by homeostatic mechanisms. Thus, deviations in hair element levels often appear prior to overt symptoms and can thereby be a valuable preliminary tool for predicting the development of physiological abnormalities.

Organic Acids Test

Like an emissions test for your body, the Organic Acids test shows how effective your cellular metabolism is and provides a great benchmark how healthy you are overall.

The organic acids test is like an emissions test for your body. How effective is your cellular metabolism? How healthy are your metabolic pathways?

How are you creating energy at the cellular level? Do you have yeast, fungal, or bacterial overgrowth? How are you metabolizing neurotransmitters? Are youproducing enough glutathione (which is our predominant antioxidant)?

These are some of the many questions that can be answered with an organic acids test. Medical doctors will haphazardly throw drug after drug at you in effort to help you overcome your challenges and will provide no answers for you. It’s time to take control of your destiny and take a functional medicine approach to your health and wellness and get some REAL ANSWERS!
