#205 Functional Adrenal Stress Profile

4 Cortisol measurements, 2 DHEA-S, Estradiol, Estriol, Progesterone, Testosterone, Melatonin

Lab Fee: $176 (pay directly to lab)

Using the # 205 Adrenal Stress Profile, Plus V you submit four saliva samples; morning, noon, evening and bedtime. The cortisol and DHEA measurements at these times tell us how well your adrenal glands are functioning. Plus, we look at the main steroidal (sex) hormones, estradiol, estriol, progesterone and testosterone. And we also look at melatonin, the sleep hormone, because one of the most common main complaints is sleep problems. Other complaints that may result from poor adrenal function include:

* anxiety
* panic
* depression
* loss of immunity
* disturbed sleep
* thinning skin
* poor concentration/memory lapses
* heart disease/atherosclerosis
* hot flashes

#101 Metabolic Assessment Profile

Indican (protein digestion), Free Radicals, & Liver Function

Lab Fee: $132(pay directly to lab)

Using the #101 Metabolic Assessment Profile you submit a urine specimen to the lab which measures two important body functions; digestion and detoxification. First, we measure indican, which tells us how well you are digesting and absorbing protein. If you are not breaking down and absorbing protein, you probably aren’t digesting carbs or fats very well either. We also look at lipid peroxides.This measurement tells us if you have excessive oxidative stress in the small intestines. Together, these two markers provide a good look at how well your digestion is working or not working. Common complaints related to improper digestion and detoxification include:

heartburn/reflux
stomach pains/cramps
intestinal pains/cramps
constipation
diarrhea
bloating sensation
gas or any kind
nausea, vomiting
painful elimination
food cravings
depression
fatigue
dark circles
skin conditions
headaches
