Let’s Take A Look!
This profile is the best starting point for initial assessment of adrenal function and stress hormones, hormonal status, and neurotransmitter balance. This profile is important for both men and women, providing baseline and monitoring information for patients of all ages.
Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that facilitate the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next across a synapse. Neurotransmitters work with receptors in the brain to influence and regulate a wide range of processes such as mental performance, emotions, pain response and energy levels.
Functioning primarily in the Central Nervous System (CNS), neurotransmitters are the brain’s chemical messengers, facilitating communication among the body’s glands, organs, and muscles.
Numerous clinical studies have shown that inadequate neurotransmitter function has a profound influence on overall health and well-being. In fact, imbalances in certain neurotransmitters are associated with most of the prevalent symptoms and conditions seen in practitioners’ offices today.
RENEW Wellness Comprehensive Panel
This profile provides comprehensive information regarding your overall health and metabolism, including thyroid function, markers for heart health and inflammation, liver, kidney and metabolic markers for insulin resistance and Metabolic Syndrome.
This test provides the basis of a personalized, functional approach in addressing a broad variety of clinical conditions. Rather than shooting the dark with what supplements to take, this test lets you know exactly what your body is deficient in so we can treat accordingly based on the results.
This is why the diet or workout that worked great for your friend may not seem to be giving you the same results. The Genetic Test analyzes variations in 70 genes that impact nutrient metabolism, eating habits, weight management and body composition, food intolerances and what type of diet and exercise are best suited to you, based on your Unique Genetic Blueprint.
This specialty lab tests genetic markers that are specific only to you.
It consists of 70 genetic markers with actionable information for weight management, nutrient recommendations, heart health, food intolerances, eating habits and physical activity as well as additional genetic insights for health and wellness focusing on areas such as inflammation and antioxidant capacity, and even sleep.
This is how we create your Personalized Nutrition Plan, with the ultimate goal of improving health and performance through precision nutrition recommendations. The Genetic Test for Weight Loss uses evidence-based, actionable genetic markers to help you maximize your genetic potential and overall health through the power of food, personalized to your genetic make-up.
If indicated, your doctor might order additional testing based on your situation. Of course, we'll discuss it with you first.
