The Why & Because of Labs for a Holistic Approach
With fibroids, our registered dietitian and certified functional nutritionist highly recommends iodine and halide testing as iodine deficiency can be a root cause of fibroids.
The hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) gives us a picture of how the body is responding to stress, how stressed the client is and the impact of that stress on the adrenal and thyroid glands. Not a diagnostic test.
The DNA test is fascinating and can tell us how able a person is to remove toxins, how they respond to exercise, their ability to lose weight, the likelihood of inflammation and oxidative stress, and gives us clues to hormone balance. It’s not diagnostic; it’s a blueprint that helps us know where to look and what to look for.
Her Dream Lab Panel
With this dream panel, the dietitian can assess mineral balance, possibility of infections (viral, bacterial, or parasite), inflammation, oxidative stress, acid/base balance, aerobic metabolism, connective tissue integrity, calcium balance, blood sugar issues, and more.
