CALL US FOR MORE INFORMATION ON LAB AND FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTS

A VARIETY OF TESTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR DIFFERENT CONDITIONS.

TESTS ARE PROVIDED BY

 Rocky Mountain Analytical.

Good health is linked to eating the right foods, minimizing exposure to toxins, and maintaining hormone and immune system balance. Getting these tests done will help with finding the root cause of your condition, developing a detailed treatment plan & diet, based on genes and sensitivity towards foods you eat.

Prices may vary due to add-ons and extra Laboratory charges. Our Naturopathic doctor will provide you with the final amount after assessment.

LAB TESTING AVAILABLE


RMA FST™ – IgG Food Sensitivity Testing

Undiagnosed food sensitivities can affect your quality of life. Manage your health and well-being with the RMA FST™ IgG Food Sensitivity Test, a report looking at up to 222 foods.

Symptoms associated with food sensitivities develop slowly over time and can create inflammation and may play a role in causing disease and worsening of certain symptoms. The RMA FST™ IgG Food Sensitivity Test can help identify these issues.

The RMA FST™ IgG Food Sensitivity test has 3 different options for testing IgG antibodies

  • RMA FST™ Enhanced:

    Enhanced panel tests for 222 different foods, including 80+ foods not available in the Basic panel. This panel is especially popular with patients who eat less meat, wheat, and refined sugar. This panel has the potential to identify more foods that the patient may be intolerant to; therefore providing you more robust information.

  • RMA FST™ Vegetarian:

    Tests over 160 different foods including all of the vegetarian foods offered in the Enhanced panel, as well as dairy and eggs, but excluding fish/seafood and meat.

  • RMA FST Basic:

    The Basic panel reports on 125 foods, including the most common food sensitivities in all categories: milk (cow, goat, and sheep), eggs, corn, and wheat.

For more information, please DOWNLOAD RMA FST™ Panel Options PDF the complete healthcare provider information package. 

When exposed to certain foods, your immune system can react by releasing proteins called antibodies. Food components that cause antibodies to be released are called antigens or allergens.

Two of the types of antibodies that are commonly produced in response to foods are IgE (immunoglobulin E) and IgG (immunoglobulin G). A food allergy is an immediate reaction caused by IgE antibodies and a food sensitivity is a delayed reaction caused by IgG antibodies to specific foods.

You can develop food sensitivity at any age. Because IgG food reactions take hours or days to develop, it becomes difficult to determine which food is responsible for the reaction without testing. You should speak with your healthcare provider if you have the following ongoing symptoms:

  • Systemic: fever, fatigue, chills, sweating, weakness, puffiness.
  • Skin: itching, redness, swelling, and rashes.
  • Brain: mood and memory disturbances, behavioral problems.
  • Lungs: bronchitis and asthma symptoms.
  • Musculoskeletal: Joint pain, muscle stiffness, swelling.
  • Digestive tract: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, gas, bloating.

Comprehensive Hormone Insights™ (CHI)

Fatigue, sleep disturbances, stress, anxiety, low libido, weight gain, or fertility issues? These may be symptoms of hormone imbalance.

Comprehensive Hormone Insights™ (CHI) measures important hormones and hormone conjugates that allow evaluation of metabolized hormones, insight into hormone stores, and a view into liver function. CHI also includes many clinically meaningful cortisol measures. CHI also includes 17-OH-pregnenolone, an important precursor steroid, along with clinically relevant estrogen ratios that provide insights into breast cancer risk and estrogen metabolism.

The Comprehensive Hormone Insights™ requires 4 urine samples, collected over a period of two days.

Hormones act as messengers in the body, traveling through the bloodstream to target tissues. Hormones affect many aspects of health such as mood, sleep, appetite, growth and development, sexual function, and reproduction. Therefore, it is important for hormone levels to be in proper balance.

Comprehensive Hormone Insights™ (CHI) is a test that measures the hormone levels in your urine, providing an in-depth look at your overall hormone production and metabolism in major hormone “families” including:

  • Cortisol
  • Estrogens
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • DHEA

What Your Body Is Producing

  • The adrenal glands and the ovaries or testes produce cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, which are transformed into related hormone metabolites. CHI gives a comprehensive picture of the hormones your body is producing, so your healthcare provider can better understand your hormone issues.

CHI also provides information on:

  • Oxidative stress, which is strongly linked to a wide range of chronic diseases
  • Melatonin, which helps regulate your sleeping and waking.

 if you are experiencing sustained symptoms commonly associated with a hormone imbalance including:

Women

  • Sleep disturbances
  • Mood disorders (anxiety, irritability, depression)
  • Headaches
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Memory lapses
  • Fatigue
  • Acne/oily skin
  • Weight gain
  • Fertility problems
  • Breast tenderness
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Reduced sex drive

Men

  • Mood disorders (anxiety, irritability, depression)
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Loss of sense of humor
  • Aggressiveness
  • Poor exercise tolerance
