Gut Health Lab Analysis Options

IgG Food Sensitivity Test + Candida

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is the first line of defense found in all body fluids to protect against infections.  IgG antibodies do not release histamines related to reactions of itching, hives, flushing, or sneezing associated with classic IgE allergic reactions.  Instead, IgG antibody reactions usually manifest as bloating and nausea to headaches, mood changes, and fatigue.  IgG reactions can occur hours to even days after the consumption of the food making it often difficult to determine which food is the "offender".

The IgG Food Sensitivity Test + Candida analyzes the 190 common foods in the Western, Asian, and Mediterranean diets to see if the antibodies are present and excess which can lead to the symptoms being experienced.  Candida is a naturally occurring yeast found in the GI system.  It can overgrow portions of the intestinal mucosa, causing numerous symptoms.  If allowed to grow out of balance, the toxins produced by Candida can create minute holes in the intestinal lining, leading to “leaky gut” syndrome. With leaky gut, Candida or its byproducts enter the blood and contribute to a chronic inflammatory immune system response.

Here's what's included:

  • At-home dried blood spot test collection kit to test against 190 common food antigens and Candida Albicans

  • Lab Analysis and Interpretation

  • 45-Minute Virtual Session to Discuss Test Results

  • Supplement and Dietary Recommendations

  • A la Carte Add-on Option

    • 4 weeks (20 days) of tailored meal plans based on results, dietary preference, and lifestyle

FOOD SENSITIVITY + CANDIDA ANALYSIS

GI MAP (Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus)

Studies indicate that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome, in particular, plays a critical role in mediating the effects of diet and other factors on health, including digestive, immune, metabolic, and neuroendocrine functions. Assessing GI health with the proper tools can help practitioners get to the root cause of chronic illness.

Some conditions and symptoms that warrant testing (but are not limited to) are:

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • IBS/IBD

  • Digestive complaints, diarrhea, or constipation

  • Brain fog

  • Skin problems, like acne and psoriasis

  • Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety

  • Diabetes and weight loss issues

The Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay (GI-MAP) is an innovative clinical tool that measures gastrointestinal microbiota DNA from a single stool sample. Through analysis, microbes can be detected that may be disturbing normal microbial balance or contributing to illness as well as indicators of digestion, absorption, inflammation, and immune function.

Here’s What's Included:

  • At-home stool collection kit to 

  • Lab Analysis and Interpretation

  • 60-Minute Virtual Session to Discuss Test Results

  • Supplement and Dietary Recommendations

  • A la Carte Add-on Option

    • 4 weeks (20 days) of tailored meal plans based on results, dietary preference, and lifestyle

STOOL ANALYSIS

SIBO Breath Test

Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) occurs when colonic bacteria have migrated to the small intestine.  Symptoms of SIBO can include gas, bloating, constipation, and/or diarrhea and are exacerbated by high FODMAP foods and the migrated bacteria ferment and digest carbohydrates that then produce the symptoms.  

A SIBO breath test measures the amount of methane and/or hydrogen-producing bacteria present by drinking a lactulose solution and breathing into a bag to evaluate bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine.

Here's what's Included:

  • At home SIBO breath test kit to analyze gas-producing bacteria

  • Lab Analysis and Interpretation

  • 30-Minute Virtual Session to Discuss Test Results

  • Supplement and Dietary Recommendations

  • A la Carte Add-on Option

  •  4 weeks (20 days) of tailored meal plans based on results, dietary preference, and lifestyle

SIBO ANALYSIS

Organic Acids Test (OAT)

Organic acids are chemical compounds excreted in the urine as a by-product of metabolism.  Organic acids are most commonly analyzed in urine because they are not extensively reabsorbed in the kidney tubules after glomerular filtration. 

The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with 76 markers.  It provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria.  Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue, and immune function. The cause of these high levels could include oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, acquired infections, as well as genetic factors.  The Organic Acids Test also includes markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels, and is the only OAT to include markers for oxalates, which are highly correlated with many chronic illnesses.

Symptoms associated with irregular organic acid markers include:

  • fatigue

  • irregular bowel function

  • decreased energy and alertness

  • brain fog

  • difficulty word-finding

  • hyperactivity

  • abdominal pain

What's included:

  • At-home urine collection kit to analyze intestinal bacteria, candida, and mold, environmental toxin exposure, vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels, oxalates.

  • Lab Analysis and Interpretation

  • 60-Minute Virtual Session to Discuss Test Results

  • Supplement and Dietary Recommendations

The American Thyroid Association estimates that more than 27 million Americans have thyroid disease but more than half are unaware of their condition.  Unfortunately, most practitioners test only TSH levels, leveling out key pieces of the overall picture of your thyroid function.  While hypothyroidism is the most common, hyperthyroidism is also a condition that can have a negative impact on overall health.

Common symptoms associated with hypothyroidism:

  • Irregular menstrual cycles

  • Weight gain

  • Cold intolerance or cold hands and feet

  • Depression or anxiety

  • Slow heart rate

  • Fatigue

  • Memory Loss/Brain Fog

  • Thinning hair, brittle nails, dry skin

COMPREHENSIVE PROFILE

Fertility Profile

Current statistics from the CDC found that approximately 22.3% of married women have problems in achieving pregnancy or in carrying a pregnancy to term. Occasionally this could be due to structural issues but more commonly it is dues to hormonal imbalances.

Hormonal aspects of infertility include:

  • Ovarian insufficiency

  • Luteal phase defect

  • PCOS

  • Thyroid deficiency

  • Stress

This test is geared to women who have irregular cycles or fertility issues, who have been trying to get pregnant without success, or who would like to be proactive in their preconception planning by getting a baseline screening.

FERTILITY PROFILE

Cycle Mapping

Evidence shows that hormonal imbalances can be the root cause of many chronic health issues, and imbalances that affect a woman’s menstrual cycle are no exception. When hormone testing conducted on a single day during the luteal phase doesn’t provide enough diagnostic information, a month-long hormone assessment can be helpful.

Hormonal imbalances include:

  • Migraines

  • Mood swings

  • Heavy bleeding

  • Painful periods

  • Irregular or long cycles

This testing is ideal for cycling women who are interested in knowing key hormone levels throughout the month - either as a way of getting to the root of difficult menstrual symptoms, assessing cases of PMS/PMDD, or learning more about their fertility.

Here’s what’s included:

This test assesses estradiol, progesterone, and luteinizing hormone. Dried urine testing provides a simple and convenient way to assess fluctuations in daily hormone levels over an entire month.

  • Lab Analysis and Interpretation

  • 45-Minute Virtual Session to Discuss Test Results

  • Supplement and Dietary Recommendations

  • A la Carte Add-on Option

    • 4 diurnal cortisol levels
