Expert Lab Analysis
Dr. Melanie can review current labs from a holistic point of view. Dr. Melanie may order additional lab work to fill in missing pieces of information that may have been missed by previous lab testing. Typically health insurance can be used for lab work. Labs ordered may include:
- Micronutrient Testing- This test will assess both celluar and serum levels of micronutrient status. By assessing what nutrients are available in the blood and what is actually getting into the cell Dr. Melanie determines the underlying causes of chronic issues. i.e. Certain patterns in deficiencies may point to adrenal fatigue, blood sugar imbalances, digestive issues or detoxification issues.
- Hormones: Thyroid, adrenal, sex hormones. These may be tested using blood or saliva testing.
- Environmental & Food Allergy as well as Food Sensitivity Testing. These tests can help refine the NAET protocol.
