Adrenal Stress Index:

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

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. Click here for more information.

Cholesterol – LPP

The Lipoprotein Particle Profile™(LPP™) is the test that could save your life. SpectraCell’s LPP™ test is 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.

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.

Micronutrient Testing

Nutritional status is a vital foundation of health and performance. SpectraCell’s micronutrient testing is an innovative assessment of nutritional status. Unlike traditional serum, hair and urine tests, SpectraCell’s tests evaluate how an individual’s white blood cells respond to varied environments of 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. Click here for more information.

Salivary Hormone Testing:

Saliva testing is a convenient, inexpensive, and above all, accurate means of testing steroid hormones. Scientific studies have shown a strong correlation between steroid hormone levels in saliva and the amount of hormone in the blood that is active or “bioavailable.” Click here for more information.
