​Hormone Panel includes:

  1. Cholesterol

  2. DHEAS

  3. Estradiol

  4. Progesterone

  5. Testosterone

  6. Vitamin D

  7. Cortisol

  8. Melatonin

Comprehensive Hormone Insights™ (CHI) measures important hormones and hormone conjugates that allow evaluation of metabolized hormones, insight into hormone stores, and a view into liver function. CHI also includes many clinically meaningful cortisol measures including those that may inform on cortisol awakening response, recovery and repair and cortisol conjugation pattern. CHI also includes 17-OH-pregnenolone, an important precursor steroid, along with clinically relevant estrogen ratios that provide insights into breast cancer risk and estrogen metabolism.


The Comprehensive Hormone Insights™ requires a 4 urine samples, collected over a period of two days, eliminating the need for a cumbersome 24-hour collection.

Note the combination of items will depend on the patient.

Men's Health Assessment

​The Men’s Health provides insight via the biomarkers most relevant to men’s health. Men typically suffer heart attacks about seven years earlier than women, making lipid measurements an important part of the panel. In Canada, prostate cancer represents 21% of new cancers in men and hyperprolactinemia is a common finding with impotence or infertility. The Men’s Health may be recommended when androgens are low, estrogens are high or when signs and symptoms related to sexual or cardiac health are noted.

The Men’s Health includes:

  1. Bioavailable Testosterone

  2. Cholesterol

  3. FIT

  4. HDL

  5. LDL

  6. PSA

  7. Triglycerides

Blood Assessment

The Hematology Assessment provides insight into common markers of blood health. The Complete Blood Count (CBC) reports on the health of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Iron, vitamin B12 biomarkers are included to assess for anemias. The Hematology Assessment may be recommended in the presence of suspected anemias, nutritional deficiencies or any conditions related to blood health (e.g. infections, leukemias, clotting disorders).

The Hematology Assessment includes:

  1. CBC + Differential

  2. Ferritin

  3. Iron/TIBC

  4. Vitamin B12




IgG, IgM, IgA, IgE testing for a variety of foods. Testing immediate and delayed onset allergic reactions. 

There is a growing body of evidence to support the clinical benefits of eliminating IgG reactive foods from the diet.

In an IgG reaction, the IgG antibodies bind to food antigens creating antibody-antigen complexes. These complexes are normally removed by immune system cells called macrophages. However, if complexes are present in large numbers and the reactive food is still being consumed, the macrophages can’t remove them quickly enough. The food antigen-antibody complexes accumulate and can be deposited in body tissues. Once in tissues, these complexes can trigger inflammation, which may be responsible for a wide variety of symptoms.

SIBO Breath Test

Also known as the hydrogen and methane breath tests help to diagnose either intolerance to sugars or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). The test measures how the amount of hydrogen present in your breath changes after you consume a sugar solution.

Commonly run for Irritable Bowel Syndrome as this test is the closest thing to understanding the root cause of IBS. 

Based on results, a treatment approach is formulated and patients are always left feeling better.


Test your vitamin and mineral status. This one of a kind test, measures your nutrient status over the course of several months for a more accurate assessment than just a snapshot.

B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6,B12, Folate, Pantothenate, Biotin)

Amino acids and metabolites (Serine, glutamine, asparagine, choline, inositol, carnitine, oleic acid. 

Other vitamins and minerals (vitamin D3, vitamin A, vitamin K2, manganese, calcium, zinc, copper, magnesium)

Carbohydrate metabolism (fructose, glucose-insulin interaction, chromium)

Antioxidants (glutathione, cysteine, coenzyme Q10, selenium, vitamin E, lipoic acid, vitamin C)

Toxin Panels

  • Glyphosate Profile

    • Most widely produced herbicide used in agriculture and forestry, glyphosate​ is a weed killer that targets the enzymes that produce the amino acid tyrosine, tryptophan and phenylalanine. Use of glyphosate has amplified, after the introduction of genetically modified glyphosate-resistant crops.

    • Individuals who are farmers, florists or landscapers that handle herbicides are at increased risk. Glyphosate is absorbed directly through the skin, through drinking water.
      The WHO classified glyphosate as a probable carcinogen in humans.

    • Glyphosate exposure is the cause of many chronic health problems: non-hodgkins lymphoma, renal tubule carcinoma, pancreatic islet-cell adenoma and skin tumors. It also dysrupts the microbiome in the intestine, causing a decrease in the ratio of beneficial to harmful bacteria. Disruption of the microbiome could cause diseases such as autism, metabolic disorder, diabetes, depression cardiovascular disease and autoimmune disease. 

    • Treatment of glyphosate toxicity should be centered on determining the route of introduction and avoiding future exposure.

    • Glyphosate is readily metabolized in the body. However, a recent study found that glyphosate accumulates in mammalian bones .

    • Another study found glyphosate to be detectable in mammalian intestine, spleen, liver, muscle, and kidney. Kidney impairment is common in regions where glyphosate may accumulate in ground water as metal chelates.

    • The most effective way to reduce glyphosate exposure is to avoid living in areas where glyphosate is applied and to avoid eating GMO foods or animal products such as milk or meat for which GMO foods were used to feed the animals.

    • Since glyphosate is now commonly combined with the weed killer 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), testing for this chemical with the GPL-TOX test may wish to be considered also.

  • Nonmetal chemical profile

  • Heavy metal profile

  • Mold exposure
