Nutritional Artistry is a functional medicine practice. We offer metabolic testing for patients. These tests can provide us with answers as to why you are experiencing the symptoms you have. This practice does not diagnose disease. We support the body where there are nutritional insufficiencies, and help to provide nourishment and balance within the body’s system. These tests look at many different metabolic pathways. This is not your standard blood work. Below are just some of the tests we offer:
IgG Food Sensitivity (*not available in NY) is a blood test that measures antibodies to 87 commonly consumed foods.Adverse food reactions can lead to distressing symptoms and chronic health conditions. Often times it is unknown exactly which food(s) may be the cause and testing can help identify the problematic foods.
Food sensitivity symptoms may include; headaches, weight-gain, exhaustion, joint pain, rashes, etc.
Nutrition/Metabolic testing is a comprehensive nutritional evaluation and is designed to assist with management of symptoms related to nutritional deficiencies. Our food has been tampered with, and even the most balanced diets can leave us with missing nutrients. This test supportsnutritional needs by identifying deficiencies associated with complex chronic conditions; depression, anxiety, fatigue, digestive issues, chronic pain (headaches), cardiovascular health, weight-gain, and helps with optimizing sports nutrition.
GI Stool Profile(Did you know the bugs in your gut may be deciding what foods you eat?) This an advanced stool test that looks at your bugs (bacteria), yeast, and even possible parasites. It provides clinical information for the management of gastrointestinal health. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies and biomarkers, this test offers valuable insight into digestive function, intestinal inflammation, and the intestinal microbiome.
SIBO tests are non-invasive breath tests that evaluate bacterial overgrowth of the
small intestine. The 3-hour SIBO profile is recommended for patients with slower gastrointestinal transit or constipation. Symptoms of SIBO are non-specific, encompassing abdominal pain/distention, diarrhea, and flatulence.
Our hormone testing is a comprehensive urinary hormone profile. We can also test for adrenal and cortisol imbalances for people struggling with weight-loss, and symptoms of stress/ anxiety.
