Vitamin deficiencies and imbalances may produce a range of health issues, including fatigue, mood changes, digestive problems, and others. Our comprehensive urinary metabolic profile measures 36 organic acids to create a unique patient biochemistry profile that reflects how well the body is obtaining and utilizing nutrients. A customized diet and lifestyle plan can then be established to address to specific nutritional needs.

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—each microbe completes important tasks that contribute to the welfare of the whole. Some microbes metabolize foods and pass on the metabolites to other species. Other members maintain a healthy gut pH, support the host’s immune system, support food metabolism, or maintain the gut barrier. Even opportunistic species play an important role when present in small amounts!
When biodiversity in the gut is lost or when species are out of balance, the whole microbial community is affected. This creates a cascading effect that can manifest itself in seemingly unrelated areas of the body.
✔️ Understand the functions of the gut microbiome
✔️ Identify dysbiosis ratios
✔️ Pinpoint which metabolites are overproduced or underproduced
✔️ Support specific gut functions using nourishing dietary practices, supplement protocols, and lifestyle recommendations
✔️ Help people lead healthier lives!

The Omega-3 Index is a measure of omega-3s EPA + DHA in your blood. But how much omega-3 you eat is only part of the puzzle. There are many other factors that affect your Omega-3 Index such as:
Omega-3s and Your Health
The omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) have been shown to benefit a wide variety of health conditions affecting the heart, brain, eyes and joints. They’ve also been associated with healthy aging in general. Thousands of papers have been published on their effects on the body, and the research is not slowing down.
Unfortunately most people don’t get enough of these important nutrients from their diets, which is why testing blood levels is so important.
Optimize Your Omega-3 Level in 3 Easy Steps
Measure-You won’t know if your Omega-3 Index is optimal just because you eat fish or take supplements — it must be measured.
1 ModifyOnce you know your Omega-3 Index, it can be optimized with simple dietary changes.
2 MonitorTesting your Omega-3 Index every 4 months will ensure that your levels stay optimal.
This recommendation is meant to be a guide for how much EPA+DHA you may need in your diet to reach your Omega-3 Index target, based on research by Walker et al. 2019. Up to 5,000 mg per day of EPA and DHA is considered safe, but 3200 mg is set as the upper limit in the calculator due to data limitations. We recommend you retest after 3-4 months to see if your diet changes are working for you. Please consult your healthcare provider before making any major changes to your diet.

Pollutants and chemicals are common in our air, water, food, and in many products we use. Long-term exposure to these toxins is known to have serious health consequences. This Environmental Pollutants Profile provides quantitative measurement of 14 select metabolites that can help define an individuals toxic burden and provide valuable information for a targeted nutritional and detox intervention.
Vitamin D is crucial for bone strength and may have implications on other conditions including osteoporosis, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This test measures the levels of vitamin D (total, 25-hydroxy D2 and D3) in the blood, allowing for easy finger stick collection. With a simple drop of blood, we can see what your current levels are.
