COMPREHENSIVE TESTING WITH REAL RESULTS

bloodwork-01.png

We offer a wide range of labs that are able to provide detailed reports about the current status of your health. With these results, we are able to provide the most comprehensive analysis available by measuring functional deficiencies at the cellular level.

Standard blood testing can be misleading, because it measures micronutrient concentrations in the fluid OUTSIDE of the cells. Our tests are able to break down your blood to the cellular level and determine what is happening INSIDE of the cells themselves. With your results, you will be able to see where your body is deficient and where you can improve to optimize your overall personal health.

These tests are safe and can be done in a matter of minutes. In a couple weeks after your blood draw, you will have a complete map to find your optimum health.

With your results, we can develop a program of infusions, injectables, and supplements tailor-made to your specific needs in order to address any deficiencies that may exist in your body.


MICRONUTRIENT

Over half the people taking multivitamins orally are micronutrient deficient, despite supplementation! Overwhelming evidence reveals that micronutrient deficiencies are associated with inflammation and chronic disease, therefore affecting physical and mental health, and ultimately, quality of life.

Our Micronutrient test assesses how well your body utilizes 33 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites, while conveying your body's need for these micronutrients that enable the production of enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development, and good health.

Even with a healthy diet and proper supplementation, each individual is metabolically and biochemically unique. The micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different from the requirements of another. With this information, we can tailor therapies for your specific needs to achieve optimal health.


CARDIOMETABOLIC

The CardioMetabolic Test offers a clinically relevant evaluation which allows you to see your risk assessments for cardiovascular diseases, your pre-diabetes markers, your lipid profile, and your current vascular inflammation. Additionally, blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids may be more informative than any other cardiovascular disease risk factor, since it is physiologically relevant and easily modified. 

In addition, this test includes the Pre-Diabetes Biomarkers to help identify metabolic abnormalities that may progress into diabetes. 

Collectively, these check points help clients understand that not just one factor, but rather a constellation of factors, contributes to the genesis and progression towards cardiovascular disease.


TELOMERE DNA

Telomeres are sections of DNA at the end of each chromosome that serve as a "cap" to your genetic material. Every time a cell replicates, its telomere will become shorter. Shorter telomeres imply a shorter lifespan for a cell. Our Telomere Test is a superb marker for cellular aging.

Shorter telomeres have been associated with metabolic abnormalities, obesity, and several degenerative diseases, including cancer, dementia, and cardiovascular disease. 

Therapies developed at Vitaliv directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases and improve your overall health and wellbeing. Getting in front of these issues today will only improve your life in the future.

HORMONE BALANCE

Hormones play a much bigger role in maintaining one's health than many people realize. Our hormone panels allow you to pinpoint deficiencies, thus, providing you with the information you may need for optimal treatment.

The body cannot fully achieve optimal hormone health if lacking in key micronutrients, which are the building blocks of hormones and assist in hormone production. For this reason, the Hormone Balance test is recommended along with Micronutrient test to give a more complete diagnostic picture.

With these results together, a custom program of micronutrient supplementation can target deficiencies that are leading to the imbalance in hormones. 


THYROID

There are currently about 25 million Americans diagnosed with some sort of thyroid disorder. The probability of a thyroid disorder occurring is four times more likely in women than in men.

Your thyroids regulate virtually every aspect of metabolism: body temperature, mood, sex hormones, energy levels, and even impact one’s appearance, from hair and nails to skin and waistline. Abnormalities lead to weight gain, fatigue, sensitivity to cold, muscle weakness, joint pain, pale/dry skin, and mood disorders.

Our test also includes a Reverse T3 test, which most thyroid tests do not include. Reverse T3, the inactive mirrored form of T3, inhibits T3 function. Measuring RT3 levels is considered to be essential in the diagnosis and management of an underactive thyroid.

MTHFR GENE

Methylation is a biochemical process that is involved in nearly all the body’s functions, including detoxification, energy production, and inflammation. 

The methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, or MTHFR for (very) short, gene contains the DNA code to produce the MTHFR enzyme. The MTHFR enzyme adds a methyl group to several B Vitamins to make them usable by the body after absorption. The enzyme also plays a role in Glutathione production.

It is estimated that 10-45% of the population have defects in this gene. This genetic test lets us know if you may have methylation problems. This knowledge will allow you to properly supplement several important nutrients, which you can do with our therapies at Vitaliv.
