Testing

Blood & hormone panels

Comprehensive initial blood test, with followup hormone panels every 2-3 months, to see where you are now, and what your future progress looks like.

Functional Adrenal Assessment

Saliva test measuring DHEA-S and cortisol levels, to determine the stage of adrenal fatigue. Julie uses this data to prescribe hormone therapy, as well as recommend nutritional and lifestyle modifications.

Stool Culture/GI Function Analysis

Stool analysis showing balance of predominate bacteria, opportunistic or pathogenic bacteria, ova, parasites, yeast, digestion, absorption and immune function of the gastrointestinal tract. Julie uses this beneficial data to help anyone suffering with digestive distress, autoimmune disorder, inflammation, adrenal exhaustion or food sensitivities.

Detoxification Testing

Blood or urine test showing the capabilities of the body’s detox pathways. Julie uses this data to guide treatment with nutritional supplements, which help support the liver’s ability to properly perform detoxification.

Food Sensitivity Testing

Blood test to determine what foods may be causing common symptoms, such as fatigue, headache and weight gain. Julie uses this data to recommend an elimination and reintroduction diet, designed to help reduce or rid the sensitivities.

Micronutrient Testing

Blood test showing how micronutrients are functioning within the white blood cells. Julie uses this data to determine nutrient depletions, and recommend replacements for people suffering with arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, immunological disorders, metabolic disorders and nutritional deficiencies.

Advanced Cholesterol Testing

Blood test measuring density and number of lipoprotein particles. Julie uses this data to accurately assess cardiovascular risk and recommend appropriate treatment.

Brain Wellness

Urinary test showing values of neurotransmitters like dopamine, epinephrine, GABA, glutamine, norepinephrin and serotonin. Neurotransmitter imbalances can lead to fatigue, irritability, anxiety, depression, PMS and addictions, among other issues. Julie uses this data to recommend amino acids, vitamins and minerals to naturally balance these neurotransmitters.
