Female/Male Hormone Salivary Testing As we age, our hormone levels decrease. This decrease or imbalance can cause moodiness, irritability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, low libido, hot flashes, weight gain, and memory loss. A simple salivary collection test kit is sent home with the patient to perform the test in the privacy and convenience of his/her home.

Adrenal Testing The natural decline in adrenal hormones leads to chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, inability to focus, decreased metabolism and overall lack of motivation. The adrenal glands are responsible for helping us to handle stress in our lives. The adrenal output of Cortisol can be measured by collection of saliva.

Food Sensitivity Testing This test has proven accurate in identifying the relevant foods and substances associated with many types of chronic inflammatory and metabolic disorders. The common foods you are eating may be causing a reaction from your body which produces symptoms of bloating, gas, headaches, insomnia, respiratory problems or a skin rash. A simple blood test can determine those foods your body may be sensitive to. For more information, read Dr. Marcantel’s article “Are Foods Making You Sick?”
