At Meliora Integrative Medicine, we utilize advanced diagnostic testing to provide a better understanding of what’s going on in your body and help personalize treatment to your specific needs.
WHAT WE OFFER
Comprehensive Blood Panel
Our gold standard comprehensive blood panel is offered to patients as part of Meliora Integrative Medicine’s Five-Point Restorative Approach. Prior to your Initial Consultation, a full laboratory blood test is performed at our office. This includes comprehensive testing of nutrient and hormone levels to discover any underlying imbalances. Lab testing is an important component of gaining insight into your level of wellness and helps personalize your specific treatment plan.
A comprehensive nutritional analysis that provides an assessment of how well the body utilizes 31 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites and helps uncover any underlying micronutrient and antioxidant deficiencies at the cellular level. A customized nutrition and supplement plan can then be created to address your unique needs.
Genomic testing can provide comprehensive, clinical-focused knowledge of health risks and benefits within your personal genetic make-up. This information can be used, through lifestyle changes, to turn on and off genes that affect your health. These reports are a foundation for planning your personalized approach toward optimal health, wellness and an improved quality of life.
Nitric Oxide Testing
Nitric Oxide is a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system. It is a key to healthy circulation — including vasodilation (relaxing of blood vessel walls), blood flow, blood pressure, and oxygen delivery. Nitric Oxide is closely linked to supporting healthy energy levels, cognitive health, hormonal health, gut health, sexual health, and more. A simple, non-invasive, saliva-based test can tell us your nitric oxide status. Dietary and supplement recommendations can be made based on the results.
The DEXA Scan is a highly accurate body composition and bone density test measuring body fat, muscle mass and bone health. The scan helps identify ways to improve physical fitness and weight management, as well as diagnose bone-related risks, like osteoporosis.
Resting Metabolic Rate Assessment
The REEVUE measures the oxygen that the body consumes. Using this measurement it calculates a patient’s Resting Energy Expenditure (REE), commonly referred to as a Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). We can screen for abnormally low metabolic rates and pinpoint the precise caloric intake required for weight loss, maintenance, or weight gain.
Organic Acid Testing
The organic acid test offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with 76 markers. It provides an evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria, markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels and detoxification. If abnormalities are detected using the OAT, treatments can include supplements, such as vitamins and antioxidants, dietary modification and detoxification support.
Environmental Toxin Testing
A toxic non-metal chemical profile that screens for the presence of 173 different toxic chemicals including organophosphate pesticides, phthalates, benzene, xylene, vinyl chloride, pyrethroid insecticides, acrylamide, perchlorate, diphenyl phosphate, ethylene oxide, acrylonitrile, and more. Recommendations for detoxification can be created based on your specific results.
Mycotoxins (toxins from mold) are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foodstuffs. When released into the environment, mycotoxins can cause symptoms of many different chronic diseases. Through testing, we can identify mycotoxin exposures and make recommendations for detoxification treatments.
