ÉLAN VÍTAL ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS

I - LABORATORY TESTING

GI EFFECTS COMPREHENSIVE PROFILE

The GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Profile is an advanced stool test that provides immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of gut health. Using the most innovative technologies available, this ground-breaking stool test offers:

​PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), a molecular assay optimized for stool testing assesses 24 commensal bacteria associated in the scientific literature with health and disease, and provides valuable insight into the human microbiome

Calprotectin, a biomarker that effectively differentiates between Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

O&P (ova & parasite), the gold standard for parasite identification

Enhanced Test Reporting that includes an Interpretation At-a-Glance overview that highlights clinically actionable biomarkers in three key areas of gut health: Infection, Inflammation, and Imbalance (Metabolic)

Gastrointestinal function is critical for good health. Emerging evidence has associated overall GI function and gut microbiome status with a wide variety of common illnesses including, but not limited to:​

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Celiac and Other Malabsorption Disorders
  • Mood Disorders
  • Autoimmune
  • Autism

FOOD ALLERGY PROFILE

Combines IgE and IgG4 for food allergy screening. Food allergies may be associated with depression, anxiety, headaches, fatigue, joint pains and intestinal problems, etc.

The incidence of food sensitivities has increased dramatically over the years. It is estimated that up to 20% of the population have adverse reactions to foods, NSAID enteropathy, and post-infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Increased total antigenic load related to food and environmental sensitivities has been associated with a wide range of medical conditions affecting virtually every part of the body. †Mood and behavior, including hyperactivity disorders in children are profoundly influenced by food allergies.

BODY BIO BLOOD CHEMISTRY TEST

This blood test uses a narrow reference range and sets new standards in clinical diagnosis for underlying health conditions, which are missed by standard blood tests. This allows the physician to uncover underlying biochemical imbalances and deficiencies.

Nutritional inadequacies can contribute to a variety of chronic health conditions. Clinical indications for testing include:

Mood Disorders

  • Depression
  • Anxiety

 

    • Fatigue
    • Digestive Complaints
    • Chronic Pain/Inflammatory Conditions
      • Musculoskeletal
      • Migraine

 

  • Cardiovascular Risk
  • Weight Issues/Dietary Guidance
  • General Health and Sports Fitness Optimization

COMPREHENSIVE CARDIOVASCULAR ASSESSMENT

​From a fasting blood sample, 10 analyses, two ratios and a comprehensive cardiovascular index are determined. These markers include those recently identified as important modifiers of heart disease, along with traditional HDL, LDL, total cholesterol and triglycerides. Ideal for individuals with a family history of heart disease and high cholesterol.

This test also analyzes lipoprotein(a), homocysteine, apolipoprotein A1, apolipoprotein B, fibrinogen, and C-reactive protein.

COMPREHENSIVE DETOXIFICATION PROFILE

Standard “liver function” tests measure levels of enzymes such as SGOT and SGPT. Unfortunately, by the time these tests register “abnormal”, liver damage is already present. Our test assesses the livers detoxifying ability in order to evaluate the overall state of your health. Recommended for individuals with past liver problems, family history of alcoholism or those exposed to environmental toxins and pollutants.

OSTEOPOROSIS RISK EVALUATION

The rate of bone loss is gauged by measuring Type 1 collagen in the urine. It is a safe, non-invasive test.​

  • Osteoporosis leads to 1.5 million fractures per year
  • Osteoporosis affects more than 50% of healthy American women aged 30-40 who are likely to develop vertebral fractures as they age
  • Hormone testing is an important component to identify individuals currently losing bone at an accelerated rate so that effective treatment can begin before significant bone loss has occurred

ADRENAL STRESS INDEX

The Adrenocortex Stress Profile is a convenient, noninvasive salivary assay that evaluates the bioactive levels and interrelationship of the body’s important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. This profile serves as an insightful tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances that can be associated with anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, obesity, dysglycemia, and a host of other clinical conditions.

​There is no ideal specimen type for measuring hormones since there are advantages to each, depending on clinical goals. In the case of stress hormones, the majority of circulating hormones are bound to proteins and are biologically inert. Salivary testing assesses unbound, biologically-active levels of the following hormones:

Cortisol – 
Cortisol is released in large amounts in response to physical, physiological, and/or psychological stressors. A glucocorticoid response that is elevated, extended, or inadequate can impair a person’s adaptation to stress, increase or decrease HPA-axis activity and is considered a health risk. Due to the circadian pattern of cortisol release, sequential timed measurements of cortisol provide the best tracking of overall cortisol production.

DHEA – 
In contrast to cortisol, DHEA exerts mostly anabolic actions and balances the body’s stress response. DHEA functions to provide substrate for the synthesis of sex hormones, guards against degenerative conditions associated with aging, influences immune function and energy production, and affects insulin sensitivity, thyroid function, and protein synthesis.

Salivary adrenal hormone testing may uncover biochemical imbalances, which can adversely affect:

  • Mood
  • Sleep
  • Immune Defense
  • Thyroid Function
  • Weight Control
  • Resistance to Stress
  • Energy
  • Cardiovascular Health

When compared to traditional blood testing of adrenal hormones, salivary assessment offers several advantages:

  • Uncovers abnormal patterns of cortisol release over a 24-hour period, which may be addressed with customized therapeutic interventions
  • Hormone levels measured in saliva, rather than serum, are thought to be unbound and bioavailable
  • Convenient at-home collection of four salivary samples collected throughout the day is an ideal low-stress diagnostic for assessing diurnal variation in stress hormones
  • Facilitates follow-up testing to monitor therapy responses, especially when multiple samples are required to be collected over a period of time

CDSA AND PARASITOLOGY

Comprehensive stool test evaluates gastrointestinal function, digestion, and nutrient absorption. Evaluates intestinal intruders. Benefits those with chronic gastrointestinal problems.

This stool analysis evaluates:

  • Digestion/Absorption Markers
  • Gut Metabolic Markers
  • Gut Microbiology Markers
  • Gold standard O&P (ova & parasite) technology as well as EIA (Enzyme Immunoassay) for identification of common parasites

Evidence suggests that both local and systemic health issues may begin as imbalances in gastrointestinal function. Some of the consequences of imbalanced gastrointestinal health are:

  • Maldigestion
  • Malabsorption
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Altered GI immune function
  • Bacterial/fungal overgrowth
  • Chronic dysbiosis

METABOLIC DYSGLYCEMIA PROFILE

Reveals early signs of diabetes, syndrome X, and related chronic degenerative conditions. Assesses dysglycemia, insulin resistance, protein glycation and hormonal balance. Uncovers metabolic imbalances for sugar craving, confusion, low energy, obesity, stress sensitivity and binge eating.

Metabolic Syndrome

  • High Triglycerides
  • Low HDL Low HDL
  • Hypertension
  • High Glucose
  • Increased waist circumference
  • Prevalence=24% adults in U.S.

HORMONE EVALUATION PANEL

Monitoring your hormone levels may help you uncover crucial imbalances linked to aging, PMS, menstrual problems, low sex drive, fatigue, mood swings, night sweats and hot flashes, etc. A hormone profile is an excellent way to monitor a safe hormone replacement program.

The scientific literature confirms that hormone imbalances can be associated with common symptoms such as:​

  • Hot flashes
  • Mood instability
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Cognition
  • Weight gain
  • Low sex drive and performance issues
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Altered fat metabolism
  • Altered blood-sugar control
  • Vaginal atrophy
  • Hair Loss

2/16 ALPHA METABOLITE ESTROGEN RATIOS TEST

This test answers the concern of today’s women, who want to know, “What can I do to decrease my risk of breast cancer?” This urine test evaluates various forms of estrogen derivatives that are potentially harmful in women.
  • Low ratio = associated with increased risk of breast and prostate cancer, lupus of breast and prostate cancer, lupus (Kabat GC (Kabat GC 2006, Muti P 2002, Weidler C 2004)
  • High ratio = associated with increased risk of bone loss in women with low estrogen (e.g.,menopause); however, women on HT with high ratio actually show superior bone mineral density response to estrogen mineral density response to estrogen.

II - ASYRA DIAGNOSTIC ANALYSIS

ASYRA DIAGNOSTIC ANALYSIS

An Asyra Diagnostic Evaluation incorporates bio-energetic medicine to detect functional disturbances. A functional disturbance is an imbalance that occurs when no specific tissue/organ damage can be identified by conventional lab work or other pathological diagnostics, yet the patient still experiences a myriad of symptoms. Where traditional approaches end, the ASYRA system introduces a new perspective for evaluating and developing solutions to these issues.

In a recent double-blind study conducted by E. Alan Jeppsen, MD and Steven G Osguthorpe, ND, of the University Of Utah Alternative Medicine Department, the ASYRA yielded a 97% correlation with blood chemistry using a clinical pool of 1800 patients.

WHAT IS ASYRA?

​Asyra is an FDA-registered device that utilizes bio-energetic technology to measure how the body responds to particular stressors.

​WHY WOULD YOU USE THIS MACHINE?

​The asyra device works nicely for cased in which the patient doesn’t feel well but the blood report say there’s nothing wrong. The reason for this is that blood reports are measuring pathology, whereas Asyra is measuring subtle imbalances, allowing early detection of early stages of imbalance. In this way, Asyra is more preventatively based as opposed to pathology based.

A second reason to use the Asyra machine is to aide I present medical treatment of a condition where the patient needs additional support to get better results; For instance, it’s a scientific fact that most medications deplete certain nutrients from the body. Asyra can help to detect these deficiencies and supplement for these deficiencies. For example, it you’re on statin drugs to lower cholesterol, scientific research shows that it depletes CoQ10 from the body, thus creating side effects like high liver enzymes indicating liver damage and muscle fatigue. Supplementing CoQ10 can improve the efficacy of the medication while reducing possible side effects.

​HOW DOES ASYRA WORK?

​Frequencies of the particular test(s) chosen are sent to the patient through 2 brass signal generators, which are held in each hand of the subject being tested. The machine then interprets and measures changes in the body’s physiology and energy patterns n t response to the frequencies.

HOW DOES ASYRA MEASURE THESE PHYSIOLOGIC CHANGES?

​Asyra’s technology uses Quantum Physics (cellular energy patterns) and Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) to measure fluctuations in electrical conductivity of the skin.

WHAT DO THE PHYSIOLOGIC AND ENERGY PATTERN CHANGES REALLY MEAN?

These changes actually show patterns . trends of the patient to particular stressors. When these energy pattern are off, symptoms appear as the body’s way of indication imbalance. If these symptoms go ignored, the disease process begins. In this way, early detection via the Aysra technology enables the clinician to expand treatment effectiveness for patients thus preventing or slowing down the progression of the disease.

WHAT KIND OF TESTS CAN BE DONE WITH ASYRA?

​• Hormonal Evaluation (female and male)
• Food/Environmental/Allergy Sensitivity Analysis
• Lyme Disturbance Assessment
• Comprehensive Assessment
• Thyroid Evaluation
• Sleep Profile
• Nutritional Assessment
• Digestive Analysis

III - PREDICTIVE GENOVATIONS

GENOVATIONS

​By accurately identifying specifically selected genetic variants in any patient, a Genovations™ laboratory profile provides a “glimpse” into a person’s potential health future, thus empowering the client to modify the expression of disease years before an “anticipated” or possible condition even begins to develop.
• Identify inherited risks within families
• Modify gene expression through targeted individualized interventions
• Patient privacy, our clinics and spas are dedicated to safeguarding the confidentiality of all client informationCurrently GENOVATIONS™ testing is available in four specialized areas:

CARDIO GENOMIC PROFILE

Cardio Genomic Profile identifies SNPs that influence your body’s regulation of blood pressure, cholesterol, inflammation, blood clotting, protective vitamin/nutrient metabolism, and other important factors. This panel focuses on uncovering powerful relationships between diet, nutrition, and cardio-vascular risk unique to your body.

​OSTEO GENOMIC PROFILE

Osteo Genomic Profile measures genetic variations that influence the rate that bone tissue breaks down. These SNPs can alter your body’s ability to utilize important bone-building nutrients like Vitamin D and calcium. This information can help determine whether you may need more than just standard therapy to effectively prevent “brittle bone” disease as you grow older.

IMMUNO GENOMIC PROFILE

​Immuno Genomic Profile evaluates SNPs that can influence how your immune system functions. This test provides insight into chronic disorders characterized by inflammation and/or over-reactive immune response. These include muscle and joint pain, allergy, asthma, digestive complaints, fibromyalgia, etc.

DETOXI GENOMIC PROFILE

​Detoxi Genomic Profile measures genetic mutations that affect how your body processes and eliminates toxins. This can reveal the cause of adverse drug reactions. It can also identify people whose bodies are, by nature, more “chemically sensitive,” or who may be more prone to the damaging effects or carcinogens, free radicals, and oxidative stress. These genes also control your body’s innate ability to adequately clear the environmental chemicals that can cause cellular damage and cancer.
