Lab Testing

Micronutrient Testing

The term micronutrients is used to describe the vitamins and minerals we need for our bodies to function.  We obtain micronutrients from food with few exceptions, which is why they are sometimes referred to as essential nutrients. This test measures the ability to absorb these vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, and identifies deficiencies. 

Gut Testing

This advanced test will look at five key areas of gastrointestinal function: maldigestion, inflammation, dysbiosis, metabolite, and imbalance. This  provides root cause analysis of most GI symptoms that could be the source of abdominal pain, bloating, indigestion, and constipation. More importantly this test analyzes biomarkers that indicate whether to not an individual has leaky gut syndrome, intestinal bacterial overgrowth, inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome. Once issues are identified we are able to create a dietary lifestyle that meets your needs along with therapeutic supplementation that restores gut balance.

Hormonal Testing

To keep things functioning at its best, the body must constantly fine-tune hormone release to keep levels within proper limits. Because of the complexity of these interactions, a hormonal imbalance rarely stems from only one hormone type. More often, the problem involves a series of hormones that are out of balance. In addition, a disruption in the balance of hormones produced by one gland or set of glands can cause other glands or systems to dysfunction. Before you know it, you’re feeling miserable on multiple fronts.

To restore the vital balance of hormones, we first need a detailed, accurate measurement of hormone levels. This is why we start off with ZRT Laborities extensive Hormone Testing Panel.
