Heavy Metals Testing
We test for environmental toxins and heavy metals that may be in your body. If you have environmental toxins or heavy metals, such as mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum or nickel in your body, you’re at risk for serious illness.
Your body has no use for these heavy metals, with some exceptions. Selenium, an effective antioxidant; iron, which is required by blood cells; and copper, which plays a role in enzymes, are all necessary at certain levels to keep you healthy.
Environmental contamination and other sources are usually the culprit for mercury toxicity. Mercury toxicity or mercury poisoning can be detrimental to your health.
Vitamin Deficiency Testing
A blood test will determine if you have a vitamin deficiency. This is a necessary test because low levels of vitamins can result in severe illness if not treated. When you have overt vitamin deficiency you may not have the symptoms, but the body isn’t working optimally for good health.
Illness usually develops after many years of vitamin deficiency. Inadequate intake, abnormal metabolism, excessive excretion or an underlying disease process can result from sub-clinical and frank deficiency. Since vitamins and minerals interact with each other, a deficiency in one can negatively impact your body. If undetected for a long time, vitamin deficiency can cause serious illness.
