Genetic Hair Loss Test
Hair loss is common. 80% of all men and 40% of all women experience androgenetic alopecia during their life. Fagron TrichoTest™ is a genetic test for hair loss that analyses gene variations and lifestyle factors so that personalized hair loss treatments can be accurately recommended. Studies show there is a relationship between your genetic profile and how your hair loss responds to different types of treatment. This means not all hair loss treatments work for everybody, and the success of any given treatment is dependent on your genetic profile and lifestyle factors.
Heavy Metals Test
Heavy metal exposure is on the rise. Common sources include cigarettes, seafood, rice, well water & dental fillings. These toxic elements can significantly increase our risk of developing conditions like dementia, infertility, diabetes and cancer. They are also known to cause damage to the liver, kidneys and brain, as well as the cardiovascular, nervous and endocrine systems.
Most hormones are produced by a group of glands known collectively as the endocrine system. Hormones are secreted into the bloodstream by these glands. To keep things functioning at their best, the body must constantly fine-tune hormone release to keep levels within proper limits. More often, the problem involves a series of hormones that are out of balance. In addition, a disruption in the balance of hormones produced by one gland or set of glands can cause systems to dysfunction. Before you know it, you’re feeling miserable on multiple fronts.
Leaky Gut Test
The human gut harbors 100 trillion microorganisms including bacteria, yeast, fungi, and other microbes. This diverse ecosystem influences everything from immune function and digestion to emotional well-being and so much more. The gut microbiome is a community—Some microbes metabolize foods while some maintain a healthy gut pH, support the host’s immune system, support food metabolism, or maintain the gut barrier. When biodiversity in the gut is lost or when species are out of balance, the whole microbial community is affected.
Mycotoxins, produced by certain mold species, are some of the most prevalent toxins and can come from many sources including buildings, vehicles, and food. These compounds have been recognized as a growing global health concern due to their acute and chronic adverse health impacts. Mycotoxin exposure can be difficult to diagnose without proper testing due to vague and often varied symptoms.
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers used by the nervous system to relay information from one nerve to another. Optimal neurotransmitter balance is required to maintain proper health. Imbalances can cause the brain and the body to be over- or under-stimulated, producing neurological or psychological symptoms.
Organic Acids Test
Organic acids are products of the body’s metabolic pathways. Evaluation of these downstream metabolites provides insight into important areas related to gut health, mitochondrial dysfunction, neurotransmitter status, indicators of detoxification and macronutrient breakdown and nutritional status. This makes organic acid testing a valuable tool to assess the functional need for essential nutrients, diet modification, and other therapies.
PGX testing is a type of genetic testing that analyzes how your body metabolizes and responds to different medications. It can help you choose the best medication and dosage for your condition, based on your unique genetic profile.
Sex and Adrenal Hormone Test
DUTCH Complete provides a comprehensive assessment of 35 different sex and adrenal hormones, including oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and cortisol along with their metabolites. Additionally, the daily (diurnal) pattern of free cortisol is included, along with melatonin (6-OHMS), 8-OHdG, and six organic acids.
Vaginal Microbiome Test
The vaginal microbiome (VMB) is a dynamic microecosystem consisting of bacteria, yeast and fungi. These microbes protect the vagina against infection, support vaginal mucosal health and may also support healthy pregnancy outcomes. A healthy VMB thrives on low microbial diversity and is typically dominated by one of the following Lactobacillus species: L. crispatus, L. gasseri, L. iners and L. jensenii.
