ALCAT: Food & Chemical Sensitivity Test.  The Alcat Test is a leukocyte activation test that measures your individual response to foods, chemicals, molds and other substances at the cellular level. The results can help determine which foods and other substances may trigger unwanted inflammation and certain symptoms. Food and chemical sensitivities have been linked to migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, weight management and other symptoms related to chronic activation of the immune system.  The Alcat Test can improve these chronic health issues through dietary changes.  Pricing for ALCAT ranges depending on which panel you choose.
Cellular Nutrient Assay (CNA), which is an intracellular functional test performed with lymphocyte proliferation assay (LPA) technology  to determine nutritional deficiencies.  Our CNA consists of two tests that you can order together  or individually.  The Cellular Micronutrient Assay (CMA) is your tool to assess and address micronutrient insufficiencies in 55 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients within immune cells. This is a reflection of long-term, approximately 4-6 months, nutrient status not just a “snapshot” as is seen in serum nutrient tests.  The Antioxidant Protection Assay (APA) with Redox Assay identifies 49 specific antioxidants that significantly improve your patients’ antioxidant capacity and protect their cells from oxidative damage from free radicals and measures the overall antioxidant function of your patients’ immune cells.
Telomere Test.  Telomeres are segments of DNA found at the ends of chromosomes; they protect the genetic data contained in DNA and act as a buffer during cell replication. Telomeres become shortened over time as our cells divide and replicate. They can be prematurely shortened due to oxidation, inflammation, and stress. These conditions reduce the protective effect of telomeres, damage DNA, and contribute to early cell death. Telomere length may be indicative of cellular aging and increased susceptibility to metabolic disorders and chronic disease. Shorter telomeres have been associated with cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disorders, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cognitive decline, and other chronic degenerative conditions normally associated with aging.
 Homocysteine , single Methyl Genes like MTHFR  or a full Methyl Detox Panel .  More than 50% of us are affected by genetic variations in the methylation pathway.  Standard MTHFR genotyping only evaluates folic acid metabolism. The MethylDetox Profile makes it easy to understand the complicated methylation process by giving comprehensive insights into the functional status of the methylation pathway. Genetic variations in this pathway are associated with elevated homocysteine levels, impaired methylation processes, and limited detoxification capacity. As a result, these SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) may contribute to accelerated aging, certain chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative disorders, impaired gene-regulation, poor drug clearance, and impaired neurotransmitter metabolism.
CICA Panel (Celiac, IBS and Chron’s Array) .  Two out of five Americans have gastrointestinal disorders: up to 20% are affected by IBS, 0.44% impacted by Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, and up to 1% with celiac disease.  The CICA evaluates a patient’s genetic risk for celiac disease, serum markers associated with active celiac disease process, and genetic serum markers associated with Crohn’s disease, and serological markers for diminished antigen exclusion in the gut.
