STRESS CORTISOL TEST
The Adrenal Stress Profile is a powerful and precise noninvasive salivary assay that evaluates bioactive levels of the body’s important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. This profile serves as a critical tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances underlying anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, obesity, dysglycaemia, and a host of other clinical conditions.
OPTIMUM NUTRITION EVALUATION
ONE FMV™ nutritional test helps to give an understanding of individual diet and supplementation needs, and offers a personalized functional nutrition assessment covering Antioxidants, B Vitamins, Digestive Support, and Minerals.
Nutritional deficiencies can be a factor of many complex chronic conditions, and ONE FMV™ utilizes an easy first-morning urine collection (called a first morning void) to provide nutritional recommendations based on a patient’s individual nutritional test results. Clinicians commonly use such nutritional testing to determine the nutritional deficiencies that are at the root of chronic conditions.
Symptoms and chronic conditions related to nutritional deficiencies:
- Mood disorders
