I will provide you with a summary of our conversation at the end of the visit, which may include natural therapies such as diet and lifestyle changes, herbal remedies, and/or dietary supplements.
  • What are some advanced lab testing that is offered to help with hair and skin concerns?
    There are a variety of different lab tests that can be done to assess your health, but at your one-on-one appointment, I will decide which tests are most important and in which order they should be done. The goal is not to overwhelm you with data, but to use it strategically to guide us in the right direction toward your path to complete and total wellness. Here are a few examples of some of the key laboratory exams that may be suggested during your visit. Basic Laboratory Panels · Thyroid dysfunction, anemia, fungal infections, vitamin deficiencies, and other issues can also lead to skin care problems, so it is important that we evaluate each patient with appropriate lab testing Food Sensitivity Panel · Food allergies and sensitivities are recognized to be correlated with many healthcare concerns. Most skin issues seem to be caused or made worse by trigger foods. With proper identification and elimination of offending foods, many patients experience relief from their symptoms Hormone Testing · Hormonal imbalance may be the exact reason why you have acne or other skin care problems. Hormonal changes trigger acne and make the skin worse. It is important to test your hormones to evaluate that they are at optimal levels. Micronutrient Testing · Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body's deficiencies. Stool Testing · Stool tests are a way to identify and quantify the amounts of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi in your stool. This test will help determine if there is an overgrowth of microbes such as candida and so much more. When we thoroughly assess the GI health we can get to the root cause of your skin disease. Adrenal Testing · Your adrenals are small glands that sit atop the kidney and make a variety of hormones. One of those hormones includes the “stress” hormone cortisol. Long periods of stress can cause adrenal fatigue or adrenal burnout. Symptoms include fatigue, dry skin, digestive problems, sleep disturbances, circulation issues, and anxiety.
