Laboratory Services

We offer a wide range of laboratory testing. Laboratory tests help us determine the underlying cause of disease. They help us diagnose current pathologies and monitor response to treatment.

Laboratory testing also helps to prevent disease through screening tests, and the establishment of baseline values.

Although there are normal ranges for a population, it is best to determine your personal normal values while you are healthy.

Hair Mineral Analysis

Heavy metals can be serious factors in many disease pathologies. One of the ways we test for metal content is through its excretion in the hair. A hair mineral analysis uses a small quantity of non-treated hair, usually from the nape of the neck, to determine long-term exposure to heavy metals.
