The GI tract is home to an entire ecosystem of microorganisms (known as the microbiome), living in a symbiotic relationship with its host. These microorganisms do far more than just reside within us – they are responsible for many life sustaining functions such as vitamin synthesis, hormone production, immune system regulation, and communication with the neurological systems of the body. The GI Map is a DNA stool analysis test that allows a comprehensive and precise method to assess the microbiome in the gut. This test gives us a clearer understanding of the relationship between an unhealthy microbiome (dysbiosis) and the link to many chronic illnesses that exist systemically (outside of the GI tract). Diagnostic Solutions uses latest and most advanced DNA testing and advanced metabolic testing to assess:
- Levels of healthy bacteria
- Pathogenic bacteria
- Immune function
- Digestion and absorption
The results of this test will help identify root causes to many chronic illnesses, ranging from intestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome to autoimmune diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.
The Organix Comprehensive Profile is a nutritional test providing insights into organic acids and a view into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Identifying metabolic blocks that can be treated nutritionally allows individual tailoring of interventions that maximize patient response and lead to improved patient outcomes.
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity. Accumulation of certain organic acids often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up or drug effect. Several of the biomarkers are markers of intestinal bacteria or yeast overgrowth.
The Organix nutritional test is deal for patients who may suffer from
- Weight issues
- Sleep abnormalities
- Chemical Sensitivities
The DUTCH hormone test offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. The DUTCH test is perfect for anyone experiencing adrenal fatigue or hormonal imbalances. Hormone imbalances can affect anyone – men and women – who have an imbalance with testosterone, estrogen or progesterone. Adrenal fatigue occurs when cortisol is imbalanced. For your body to function at an optimal level, you need your cortisol to stay balanced. Patients collect four or five dried urine samples over a 24 hour period and ship through the mail. Precision Analytical’s testing methods go through a rigorous validation process to very accuracy, recover, and linearity.
Signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance:
- Mood changes like anger, irritable and anxiety which can last from a day to 2 weeks
- Heavy or very light periods
- Breast tenderness
- Breast lumps and cysts
- Cramping and/or back pains
- Weight gain
- Migraines and headaches
- Fluid retention
