THE OLIVE LEAF TESTING

  • Adrenal Testing

    Four saliva tests are taken at 6-hour intervals, in order to measure a full 24-hour circadian rhythm.

    The markers measure the output of Cortisol and DHEA (two prolific hormones released from the adrenal cortex) to assess stress levels. Low DHEA can lead to fatigue, depression, anxiety and insomnia and can, in the long-term, lead to damage to the cardiovascular system, lungs, brain and respiratory system.

    Once stress levels are assessed, healing and rebalancing can be efficiently and accurately addressed.

  • BLOOD TYPE

    Finding out your blood type is a great starting point to help you reach your health care goals.
    Eat Right 4 your type is based on the principle that your blood type-O, A, B or AB-determines your body’s ability to absorb nutrients, fight off diseases, and handle stress.

    The Blood Type Diet is based on the theory that protein-like compounds in food called lectins react with different blood types to cause a wide variety of health complaints.

    Simply put, when you eat a food containing lectins that are incompatible with your blood type antigen, the lectins target an organ or bodily system (kidneys’ liver, brain, stomach, etc.) and begin to agglutinate (making them sticky and causing them to clump together with other antigens and blood cells in the area).

    Scientific evidence supports his contention and he continues in depth research in this area. Dr. D’Adamo believes that if you want to prevent health problems, it is important to eat foods that are compatible with your blood type based upon their lectins content.

  • HORMONE TESTING

    This highly personalized & advanced assessment includes:
    • Accurate Salivary Hormone Test is the best way to check for imbalance.
    • Measures and reports levels of estradiol, progesterone and testosterone
    • Multiple Sample Testing provides accurate analysis hormone function.
    • Advanced Menopause Type® Questionnaire.
    • Includes menopause specific anthropometric analysis with 9 panels.
    • Advanced Clinical Analysis taken from three seperate salvia samples.

    When hormones are out of balance so are you. Size does not fit all when it comes to hormones! For decades western medicine has prescribed HRT as if everyone needed the same thing and the same amount. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your hormones are like your fingerprints and in order to achieve optimal health, you need to know what your specific imbalances are.

    To find out about your hormonal status you’ll need to have lab tests performed. There are several ways to test (saliva, serum and urine), but the state-of-the-art testing is through saliva. This is because it measures only the active portions of your hormones and it is these portions that determine how you feel. Saliva testing is the most accurate tool to measure and monitor your hormone status. These tests have become powerful tools in evaluating hormone related diseases and the overall wellness of the patient.

  • Vitamin Deficiency Test

    Nutritional deficiencies can majorly impact a number of your body’s key systems.  There is overwhelming evidence confirming that nutrient deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune function contributing to chronic disease process including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis and Alzheimer’s.

    Further, certain deficiencies can impact your body’s ability to fight off cancer (magnesium and vitamin D3, amongst others) and other diseases.

    The Micronutrient test will reveal your deficiencies, and provide you with a measure of your cell-mediated immune system performance (Immunidex) for a wide range of vitamins and nutrients.

    After your test results come back in, one of our Naturopathic Doctors will meet with you to review your results and help you put together a gameplan (diet, supplementation, exercise, etc) to correct your deficiencies and bolster your strengths.
