Optimal Nutritional Evaluation

Optimal Nutritional Evaluation Lab TestThe ONE will help you understand your individual diet and supplementation needs. This panel includes key organic acids to evaluate gastrointestinal function and functional need for vitamins, minerals, and co-factors. In addition, amino acids are measured to assess digestion, absorption, metabolic impairments, and nutritional deficits. Anti-oxidant reserves and the presence of oxidative injury are analyzed.

Estrogen Metabolite Cancer Risk Testing

Estrogen Metabolism lab test for cancer riskThis test provides a comprehensive analysis of urinary estrogen metabolites that correlate with breast and prostate cancer risk. Click for a sample report.



Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis with Parasitology

Comprehensive stool analysis with parasitologyThis test evaluates digestion, absorption, gut flora, and the colonic environment, and is indicated for all chronic GI problems, for acute bowel pattern changes, and for many systemic diseases. Additionally, Genova offers a parasitology component with the CDSA 2.0 that evaluates for parasites using microscopic examination and EIA testing. The profile is indicated for all chronic GI problems, for acute bowel pattern changes, and for many systemic diseases and provides a sensitivity panel for treating pathogenic flora.

Finger-stick Food Allergy TestingThis test evaluates delayed food allergies by analyzing your IgG antibodies to 96 common foods. Click here for a list of foods tested, more information on Food Allergy Testing, a critical review article, and a clinical relevance article.


Environmental Pollutants Testing

Finger-stick Food Allergy Testing Chronic exposures to a number of occupational and environmental pollutants are a growing concern in today's industrialized communities as their effects on human health are profound. Many have been linked to a variety of pathologies including neuropsychological, and neuropsychological dysfunction, leukopaenia, dyspnoea, anemia, and certain cancers, to name but a few.

Chemicals in the report include metabolites of:

* Xylene
* Toluene
* Benzene
* Trimethylbenzene
* Styrene
* Phthalic Acid Esters are used in the manufacture of plastics to allow for flexibility and to soften resins. Not only that, but it is found in everything from makeup to detergents, shampoos to time-released pharmaceutical drugs. This toxin is a well known endocrine disruptor as well as causing neurological and developmental disorders. It can interfere with tryptophan metabolism resulting in an increase in quinolinic acid, a pro-inflammatory and neurotoxic compound. Phthalates have also been implicated in abnormal fetal development, especially in male fetuses.
* Parabens are a widely used family of preservatives found in many cosmetic, pharmaceutical and industrial products. Parabens have inherent estrogenic and other hormone related activity and have been implicated in the growth and development of human breast cancer cell lines.

Sample collection utilizes our proprietary urine Dip ‘N Dry collection strips to maximize analyte stability and recovery. Click for a sample report.


Fatty Acids (Omega 3, 6, and trans fat) Testing

Fatty Acids (Omega 3, 6, and Trans-fat) TestingFrom a simple finger stick this test measures key omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and calculates key indicators to establish your optimal balance. Trans fatty acids - the "bad" oils in processed foods - are also measured. Click for a detailed description, reference page, a sample report, and lab kit directions.
