Heavy Metal Testing
Heavy metals have been shown to slowly accumulate in one’s body over their lifetime, and are responsible for a host of diseases, defects, and health conditions. Activities such as smoking and eating farmed fish can contribute to higher levels of heavy metals found in the body, which can lead to brain fog, mental disorders, health problems, and much more.
This is why, at L.A. Quinn M.D., we offer the leading heavy metal testing that is designed to measure your body’s current retention of heavy metals so that we may formulate a patient-specific plan of treatment for your current needs. This simple urine test is quick and painless, and can produce accurate results within a matter of days. If you feel like you may be affected by brain fog, depression, or any other serious effects found in those with heavy metal toxicity, visit L.A. Quinn M.D. today.
Hormonal imbalances can cause undue stress and depression, along with a number of many other undesirable side effects. If you feel like you wake up tired in the morning, have a decreased sex drive, are struggling with constant fatigue and weakness, or just experience chronic bloating, you could be experiencing the effects of a significant hormonal imbalance.
While blood tests are typically standard for testing hormonal levels, saliva testing has been shown to be just as effective for accurately measuring your hormonal levels. What our patients love most about our saliva testing is the fact that the test can be completed from the comfort of your own home. It is also a great alternative for those who may be afraid of needles, making saliva testing the preferred method for determining a hormonal imbalance.
There are a variety of foods that can react differently among individuals based on your unique genetic makeup. Food, chemical, and additive allergies can trigger serious reactions that can result in severe side effects such as chronic migraines, fatigue, joint problems, and much more. Luckily, it is now easier than ever to screen for potential food, chemical, or additive allergies through the use of ALCAT testing.
This simple test is conducted through a blood test where allergen antibodies are identified and measured within one’s bloodstream. ALCAT testing measures your cells’ reactions to more than 350 different foods while providing sufficient data to suggest which foods you should consider avoiding. This is why if you feel adverse effects after eating a certain food, you should consider having an ALCAT test completed for the peace of mind that you deserve.
These are just a few of the several tests that we offer at L.A. Quinn M.D. as part of our goal to help our patients live the healthiest lives possible.
