At Holistic Integration, we consider proper blood work and diagnostic tests to be critical in helping our patients to achieve optimal health. The Prather Profile blood test, Hair Analysis, and a G.I. Stool Kit are the three core diagnostics that can provide blueprint to your health.
The Prather Profile
Blood analysis can provide more information about the function of your body than any other test. The Prather Profile Blood Analysis is a well-respected, comprehensive blood test that covers all the major organ systems. This scientifically proven complete blood test is recommended by the top diagnosticians in the world to determine the body’s physiology.
Over FIFTY blood tests are included in the Prather Profile. Find out the blueprint to your health
The Prather Profile looks at the following functionalities:
- Iodine levels
- And so much more….
Looks at mineral deficiencies or imbalances such as Copper, Boron, Tin, plus many others. Also, toxic minerals such as Arsenic and Uranium. Mineral deficiencies and/or imbalances can affect the following.
- Cognitive thinking
- Endocrine system
- Nervous system
- Even skin and hair
GI Stool Kit
This test is a 3 day sample collection looking at the health of a patient’s gut. This test will give insight into digestive function, intestinal inflammation and the intestinal microbiome. The gut affects the overall function of the immune system. When we are looking at immune compromised patients we look in the gut.
Using electrodes on both the feet and hand we use the diagnostic tool called BCA (Body Composition Analysis) for two functions: to measure Body Fat Percentage and Phase Angle.
Body Fat Percentage is looking at the percentage of fat cells out of a patient’s total weight. For a male, 40% and above is considered morbidly obese, and for a woman 45% and above is considered the same.
Phase Angle is looking at how well the cell communicate by testing the how quickly the electrodes could communicate through your body. This gives us a good idea on how healthy a patient is and whether there is a disease process occurring within our patient.
This test looks at 600 different foods to figure out how a patient reacts to each one and whether it is something the patient is able to digest and use the nutrients properly or if the food is causing more damage. Your cells respond differently to different types of food and what can be surprising is there can be an inflammatory response to even the healthiest of foods for patients and each patient responds differently.
When it comes to the Structural side of our practice 99% of the time we need to take x-rays. It is important to see how the structure of the body is positioned so that we can properly treat. From looking at degeneration of the discs to scoliosis will determine how we treat the patient. We individualized each program to the patient’s needs.
ANS (Autonomic Nervous System) Test
The autonomic nervous system is the system of the body that operates on its own without you having to think about it. The ANS system controls internal body processes such as the following:
- Blood pressure
- Body temperature
- Sexual response
- The balance of water and electrolytes
- And much more….
