  • Deficiencies or excesses can have debilitating effects, such as:
    • ​Low Testosterone – loss of libido and energy
    • High Estradiol – increased risk of breast cancer
    • High Cortisol – your stress hormone; responsible for weight gain

Food Allergy Testing

  • People who benefit most from this testing experience nausea and bloating after eating certain foods.
  • Commonly, these people have frequent diarrhea that is fatty and foul-smelling.

  • Deficiency of some nutrients can be debilitating:
    • ​Iron deficiency causes anemia
    • Folate deficiency causes birth defects
    • B12 deficiency causes fatigue
    • Vitamin D deficiency causes or has been linked to:
      • ​Chronic or repetitive infectious diseases;
