Dr. Jada MacLeod offers diagnostic services at the clinic to help understand her patient’s health concerns and to monitor treatment progress. The following is a list of tests most commonly performed:
IgG food intolerance testing: 96 different foods are analyzed via a blood test in order to detect hidden food intolerances which could be contributing to symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, chronic pain and digestive disorders.
Saliva hormone testing: helps us to assess thyroid, adrenal and female hormone imbalances.
Toxicity screening: measures the amount of heavy metal exposure in the body and accumulation in the tissues.
Liver detoxification assessment: monitors the functioning of the liver and how well the detoxification pathways are working.
Standard blood testing: cholesterol, thyroid, vitamin-status, hormone levels, etc.
In-house urinalysis: to detect the body’s acidity levels, kidney function and urinary health.
