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:

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.
