Holistic Approach to Wellness
After assessing your individual needs we will order tests accordingly. Feel free to visit the links below to learn more about the individual labs.
Popular Test: IgG Panel for Food Intolerance
Lab tests are valuable tools in finding out what’s really going on in your body. For example, food intolerance tests (IgG) are key in creating a diet that helps heal as opposed to guessing. We are able to focus on the foods that give you optimal health and eliminate the foods that are harmful to your system. Only a small percentage are truly allergic to a food so we don’t tend to run food allergy panels (IgE). Intolerance is much more prevalent. In fact 1 in 5 people have food intolerance. Long-term consumption of foods you are intolerant to goes “systemic” and causes inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation is the root cause of disease. Testing helps us identify the cause of inflammation and gives us insight on creating a custom wellness plan. Another panel that is helpful is IgA which is found in high concentrations in the mucous membranes, particularly those lining the respiratory passages and gastrointestinal tract, as well as in saliva and tears.
Other labs available (stool, blood, urine and saliva)
Karmic Health works with each patient to determine which testing makes sense. Some of the common tests we run are food intolerance (IgG panel as mentioned above), stool tests to look for pathogens and candida, annual CBC wellness panel, saliva testing for hormones and hair analysis for heavy metals to name a few. It’s best to work with us to determine which test would best fit your needs.
