Chronic symptoms and conditions are expressions of 'terrain damage' letting you know that your body has stopped communicating on a cellular level. Rather than suppressing your symptoms, a naturopathic approach discovers the underlying imbalances that affect your inner environment.
Comprehensive Gut Analysis
These conditions would benefit from a Comprehensive Gut Analysis:
acid reflux/h. pylori
constipation and/or diarrhea
fatigue, brain fog
bloat, stomach aches, digestive issues, and gas
autoimmune and more
Many chronic disorders come from digestive problems and inadequate nutrient absorption. Proper gastrointestinal function is needed to eliminate toxic substances, pathogenic microbes, and undigested food particles from the body to prevent health problems. Nutrients require a specific internal environment to be properly digested and transported throughout the body.
Abnormal intestinal microorganisms in the GI tract are widely known to cause disease. Research shows a relationship between the GI tract and the neurological, hepatic, and immune systems. For example, excessive yeast produces toxic substances that can pass through the blood-brain barrier and alter neurological functioning causing “brain fog,” behavior problems, and learning difficulties.
Functional Nutrition Assessment/Organic Acids Test
If you struggle with fatigue, chronic pain, gut issues of any kind, immunity challenges, even mystery symptoms, etc, the Organic Acids Test outlays what is imbalanced. You will receive a personalized plan to rebalance your body through food recommendations and adding necessary supplements and herbs.
What is a functional nutritional assessment, or organic acids test?
Marked accumulation of organic acids in urine can signal a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up, or drug effect.
Enzymes that are responsible for metabolizing organic acids are vitamin and mineral dependent. With this, elevations in organic acids can reflect a functional need for these nutrients on a cellular and biochemical level, even despite normal serum levels.
Recommendations for nutrient supplementation based on elevated organic acid results are generated using a literature-based proprietary algorithm.

Organic Acids Test
Hormone imbalance is common. It can affect every system of the body and cause a variety of symptoms. Anyone with symptoms involving fatigue, insomnia, stress, immunity problems, blood sugar problems, and overweight should be tested for cortisol levels as well as "sex" hormones. This knowledge helps in making better choices of supplementation.
Saliva testing is the most convenient and least invasive manner to measure hormone status. Saliva measures the body's "free" hormone levels. Free hormones are considered to be the active hormones available for use by tissue.
