Your body has multiple systems designed to keep you healthy and vital. When your body hurts, shows symptoms, or just doesn’t feel well, these systems are failing. If you learn how these systems comprehensibly work, if you understand how your body differs, and if you make informed decisions based on this knowledge, you can live well for most of your years.
We offer several tests that look into the body’s regenerative process and overall health. When you take our tests, not only will you receive the empirical data, but you will also receive an explanation on how this impacts your health—in plain English. All tests can be performed conveniently in your home and then mailed to our preferred labs. Once we receive the results, we will analyze the data, send you copies of your numbers, and then talk to you about what this means to your health and well-being.
We use saliva as a diagnostic tool. In general, saliva testing offers a look into gastrointestinal problems, stress- and hormone-related illnesses, and the overall wellness of your body. Saliva testing also offers a view into your body’s emotional, hormonal, immunological, nutritional, and metabolic health.
So, how does it work? Saliva contains free hormones. Free hormones are the correct reflection of hormonal availability within your body’s tissues. Since optimal health requires a balance of hormones at different levels during different moments of the day, we analyze samples of your saliva over four intervals—8 a.m., noon, 4 p.m., and bedtime—which can give a more accurate assessment than a single, one-dose test such as blood work.
How do I take it? In general, you perform this test in the comfort of your own home and then mail the samples to our preferred lab. We contact you to discuss the results. Processing usually takes one week after submission.
The Adrenal Panel helps diagnose dramatic mood shifts, chronic stress and its related health issues, low immunity, skin problems, lack of vitality and energy, muscle and joint pain, hypoglycemia, common digestive disturbances, migraine headaches, osteoporosis, sleep disturbances, poor memory, low sex drive, low body temperature, and thyroid issues.
Food Allergy Panel
The Food Allergy Panel measures your intestinal tolerance to soy, milk, wheat, and eggs. You can also test for these allergens individually at $45 per allergen (i.e., $45 to test for soy, or milk, or wheat, etc.).
Female Hormone Panel
The Female Hormone Panel helps diagnose fertility and severe PMS problems. This test takes a month to perform, but you do it only once per day during 11 specified days over the course of your cycle. This method gives us a clearer picture of your hormones throughout the progression of your cycle.
Post-Menopause Panel with Adrenal Panel
The Post-Menopause Panel helps diagnose irregular bleeding, dryness, hot flashes or sweats, insomnia, headaches, mood changes, depression, osteoporosis, altered fat and carbohydrate metabolism, elevated blood pressure, and gallbladder issues within post-menopausal women. This package also includes the Adrenal Panel.
Male Hormone Panel with Adrenal Panel
The Male Hormone Panel helps diagnose impaired libido, ED, baldness, hair thinning, fat accumulation around the waist, changes in sleeping habits, lack of enthusiasm, increased cholesterol, nervousness, depression, and the inability to lose weight. This package also includes the Adrenal Panel.
We use hair mineral analysis as a diagnostic tool to test for mineral imbalances, disease trends, and the presence of toxic heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, and aluminum.
Why is hair an effective subject? In general, element deposits stay in the hair for many months; blood serum is constantly changing. Because of this, hair can often indicate one’s stress patterns, mineral imbalances, organ and glandular weaknesses, oxidation rate, and nervous system dominance. With this data we can make informed suggestions on how to change your environment, modify your diet, and supplement your nutrition.
What can toxic heavy metals affect? Toxic metal poisoning may lead to Alzheimer’s disease, general fatigue, anemia, hyperactivity, arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, autism, neuromuscular disorders, ADHD, osteoporosis, some cancers, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and some liver and kidney diseases. Since toxic heavy metals are not found in high concentration in the blood (except after acute exposure), and since no level of toxic metal is considered safe, hair mineral analysis is an important tool in recognizing your current exposure to these elements, which could be caused by any one of these common sources: silver & mercury dental amalgams, non-filtered, fluoridated tap water, contaminated food sources, large fish such as tuna and swordfish, contaminated air found in large cities, aluminum cookware and cans, anti-perspirants, Grecian hair dyes, table salt, baking powders, bleached flour, processed cheese, antacids, and drying agents.
So, how do I take the test? In general, you cut a small swath of hair and then mail it to our preferred lab. We contact you to discuss the results. Processing usually takes one week after submission.
In general, the human body can be viewed through both normal blood values and functional norms, whose values can offer clues into the health of your adrenals, liver, and kidneys, as well as the levels of your hormones and vitamins. If your blood shows multiple trends towards a specific disease process, we can make conscious lifestyle changes to dissuade the onset of that process. If you do not have recent blood work, contact us for the appropriate lab request so that you can perform the test at a LabCorp near you.
Cost varies, on which labs are ordered. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

Multiple Autoimmune Reactivity Screen
Less than 10 years ago, the recognition that antibodies against self-tissue, a primary mechanism in the development of autoimmune disease, were present years before any recognizable symptoms, gave rationale and validity to the study of predicting vulnerability to developing autoimmune disease. This field has advanced in the last decade to the point of identifying the Positive Predictive Value (PPV) of many antibodies as biomarkers to the development of specific autoimmune diseases. The development of an autoimmune disease may be influenced by a triad of factors: genetic vulnerability, immune system response to environmental exposures (toxic chemicals, antigenic foods, infectious agents, etc.), and intestinal permeability. There is a higher chance for developing autoimmunity with intestinal inflammatory conditions. Contact us to schedule.

Blood Work Review
If you have current blood work then we can evaluate your nutritional health. In general, the human body can be viewed through both normal blood values and functional norms, whose values can offer clues into the health of your adrenals, liver, and kidneys, as well as the levels of your hormones and vitamins. If your blood shows multiple trends towards a specific disease process, we can make conscious lifestyle changes to dissuade the onset of that process. If you do not have recent blood work, contact us for the appropriate lab request so that you can perform the test at a LabCorp near you.
(Note: The LabCorp test will be an additional charge paid directly to the laboratory itself.)
We also offer one-on-one consultations with Dr. Jessica via telephone to discuss your personal health goals, your desired outcome, and to help you formulate a plan for your success. To schedule your consultation appointment click HERE.
