As always, we continue to offer heavy metal testing, intra-cellular nutrient testing, complete GI stool analysis (looking for yeast, parasites, inflammatory markers, digestion efficacy, and balance of healthy and non-healthy gut flora) and Lipoprotein particle testing (a great analysis of cardiac disease risk). We also work closely with our local lab, Cedar Diagnostics, to run traditional bloodwork such as cholesterol, red and white blood cells, liver and kidney function, vitamins B12, D, and folic acid, and thyroid panels.
Labrix sets new standards in laboratory medicine. Labrix testing is higher sensitivity and has stronger results reproducibility than has been available through other methodologies; this gives you far greater confidence in the reported results. In addition to reliability and accuracy, Labrix leads the pack in terms of guaranteed turnaround times, easy to use kits, and better price points. Dr. Nicola is excited to be working with a lab that she can count on!
The primary tests she is utilizing include: Hormone testing, neurotransmitter testing, Adrenal health (cortisol) testing, and even Melatonin levels. Adding in these tests is helping Dr. Nicola be more specific in her treatment planning and monitor bio-identical hormone replacement effectively.

Plus, the constant stressors many of us face make moving through menopause much more challenging.
