Health

Foundational Package for Health & Wellness

The following markers are assessed;

  • Stress Hormone Levels. The adrenal glands produce the complementary hormones cortisol and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). DHEA is the major precursor of testosterone and the estrogens. Cortisol is the primary hormone that directs immune function and is involved in virtually all aspects of body function. When cortisol and DHEA work together in harmony, the body is then said to be in a normal state of adaptation to stress.
  • Gastrointestinal function is important for general health. Balancing beneficial microbial flora in the gut is key in digestion, nutrient usage, and ridding the body of waste and pathogens.
  • B-Vitamins, which are involved in many critical processes. Even modest B-Vitamin insufficiencies can compromise your energy production, digestion, and muscle and nerve function.
  • Cellular energy, measuring compounds that relate directly to how efficiently your cellular engines ("mitochondria") produce energy.
  • Neural function, especially neurotransmitters, the chemicals your nervous system uses to function and communicate with your body. Abnormalities can relate to symptoms of mental, emotional, and behavioural problems.
  • Detoxification capability, critical for eliminating environmental toxins and certain chemicals produced by your body. Brain fog, headaches, insomnia, nausea, chemical sensitivities, and a variety of chronic health problems can be related to toxicity issues.
  • Intestinal microbial overgrowth, which can lead to a wide variety of symptoms caused by toxins produced by bacteria, parasites or fungi.
