We are proud to offer accurate and reliable salivary hormone testing with fast turn-around times by Labrix a world-wide leader. Patients appreciate the easy to follow instructions.
Why we use Saliva testing for Hormones:
Saliva testing is proving to be the most reliable medium for measuring hormone levels. Hormone levels in saliva accurately represent the amount of hormone delivered to receptors in the body, unlike serum which represents hormone levels that may or may not be delivered to receptors of the body. Clinically, it is far more relevant to test the amount of hormones delivered to the tissue receptors as this is a reflection of the active hormone levels of the body.
What this means to you:
We get a more accurate representation of what is causing the imbalance so that we can get you back to feeling your best fast!

Neurotransmitters; Brain Chemistry Testing
We offer Neurotransmitter & Brain Chemistry testing via Labrix to discover causes of depression, anxiety and depleted energy levels to renew brain chemistry without the use of antidepressants and their undesired side effects.
Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that facilitate the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next across a synapse. Neurotransmitters work with receptors in the brain to influence and regulate a wide range of processes such as mental performance, emotions, pain response and energy levels. Functioning primarily in the Central Nervous System (CNS), neurotransmitters are the brain’s chemical messengers, facilitating communication among the body’s glands, organs, and muscles.
Identifying and managing neurotransmitter imbalances is facilitated with a noninvasive urinary test. Testing provides a tool to understand each patient’s specific neuroendocrine imbalances,which can be corrected with nutraceuticals, BHRT, diet, and lifestyle interventions.
We also provide blood tests for food allergies, chemicals, and many other environmental sensitivities.
