Laboratory Testing

 

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.

 

Zinc-tally test: to assess if patients are consuming and absorbing enough zinc.

 

Body weight and % body fat: the use of bio-impedance analysis to assess your body composition.

 

*All tests ordered by Dr. MacLeod are not covered by OHIP. For routine blood tests, Dr. MacLeod will often collaborate with your medical doctor.
