Specialized Laboratory Tests

Natural Health Works has excellent relationships with several of the nation’s most respected laboratories, enabling you to receive valuable health information in a quick, cost-effective and professional manner. The most common lab services we provide are comprehensive blood tests, allergy testing and hormone testing.

The labs we work with are endorsed by several of the world’s most renowned physicians for their advanced-testing capabilities. Natural Health Works ensures that requested tests address your specific needs and provides data pertinent to understanding your health status.

Here are several tests that we recommend:

Food Sensitivity/Intolerance Test:

Food and chemical sensitivities Sensitivities may cause a wide variety of conditions, such as digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, skin disorders and arthritis. A simple blood draw can provide a comprehensive look at the body’s immune reaction to foods and inhalants so that Allergic and other hypersensitivity reactions to foods can be successfully overcome.

Vitamin and Mineral Testing:

Nutritional status is a vital foundation of health and performance. At Natural Health Works, we use SpectraCell’s innovative intracellular analysis to determine which nutrients are best for you. This testing process is based on 18 years of research at the University of Texas. Instead of guessing which nutrients you need, we customize your nutrition with both diet and supplementation based on objective findings. SpectraCell’s test evaluates over 32 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. As a result, individual differences in metabolism, age, genetics, health, prescription drug usage, absorption rate or other factors are taken into consideration.

Hormone Testing:

Hormones are vital to your health as many chronic conditions are associated with aging and the loss of hormones . A simple blood test helps us determine hormone imbalances that often go undetected.

Adrenal Fatigue Test:

Abnormal adrenal function can alter the ability of cells to produce energy for activities of daily living. People who have a hard time getting up in the morning, or who suffer with a low energy during the day, often have abnormal adrenal function and poor blood sugar regulation.

Advanced Lipid Testing: Cholesterol – LPP

The Lipoprotein Particle Profile™(LPP™) is a test that could save your life. SpectraCell’s LPP™ test has the most advanced lipoprotein test currently available. Unlike traditional cholesterol tests, SpectraCell’s LPP™ directly measures both the size and number of several classes of lipoprotein particles, including critical risk factors as cited by the National Cholesterol Education Program, giving an accurate assessment of cardiovascular risk.

Biophysical Cancer / Cardiovascular:

The BiophysicalCA/CV is a tool for people who want to enhance their personal health surveillance program for cancer and cardiovascular disease. Many people want to be proactive in their approach to these diseases so they make healthy lifestyle choices, participate in routine screening exams, (like mammography and colonoscopy), have routine cholesterol checks and are attentive to changes that may happen in their bodies. But some people want more.

Digestive Stool Analysis:

This assay evaluates of gastrointestinal function and pinpoints imbalances associated with indigestion, constipation/diarrhea, gas and bloating, abdominal pain and irritable bowel syndrome.
