At Holistique, we conduct testing to determine the root cause of a patient's ailments. With the information derived from testing, we design a course of action to achieve wellness.
We conduct the following tests at our clinic:
- Saliva/Urine PH Testing
- Autonomic Response Testing
- Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)
- Blood tests
- Fasting glucose: a snapshot record of the glucose active in your blood at that time
- Hemoglobin A1c: the diabetic marker that offers a 3 month value
- Lipids: testing your cholesterol and various types of fats
- IMT Cardiovascular Scan
An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a non-invasive way to examine the electrical activity of the heart. Electrodes are placed on the surface of the skin and their electrical impulses are measured and recorded. The result is a print out of the various leads onto specialized graph paper. This test usually takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.
- Mononucleosis/Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) Test
A small blood sample (about a drop of blood) that is used for a quick in office assessment for the presence antibodies to the Epstein-Barr Virus, which is known to cause mononucleosis. The test is best used after the incubation period (about 4-6 weeks) and not immediately after an active infection.
- Streptococcus Bacterial Swab
A throat swab that is used for a quick in office assessment for the immune system’s response to the presence of Streptococcus bacteria. This bacteria is a common culprit for pharyngitis, also known as an upper respiratory infection.
- Influenza A & B
This is a nasal swab test used to detect immune system antigens against the influenza A and B viruses. These are the highly contagious viral infections of the respiratory tract that typically occur from October to May each year, and the strains can vary in their genetic makeup. The rapid diagnosis can help to reduce the amount of time you are sick, prevent hospital stays thus driving down cost, and prevent need of antimicrobial medicines.
- Pregnancy Test (urinary hCG)
The urinary hCG pregnancy test can be used to determine if a pregnancy has occurred. It is best to wait until the day after a missed period to take the test. It is best to have this test done first thing in the morning as your urine is more concentrated and therefore more hCG will be present.
By providing a small urine sample we can test some of the more common metrics for urinalysis. The test and results are usually available within 20 minutes after the sample is collected.
- Tissue Oxygen Saturation
This is a non-invasive method of detecting oxygen levels of tissues or organs that we cannot otherwise determine. This test takes about 30 minutes to complete and can give us information regarding functionality and oxygen requirements of various organs.
Functional Medicine Testing
We also work with leading national laboratories to perform specialty testing in order to discover the root cause of your illness:
Adrenal Stress Test
Amino Acid Profile
Colon Cancer Stool marker
Comprehensive Digestive Analysis
Comprehensive Lipid/Atherosclerotic Profile
Comprehensive Parasitology Analysis
Drinking Water Analysis
Food Allergy (serum) testing
Food Allergy Testing
Heavy Metal and Mineral Testing (urine or stool)
Hormone Testing (Male and Female)
Nutritional Blood Analysis
Organic Acids 24 Hour Urine
Spectracell FIA Nutritional Analysis
Routine Outside Laboratory and Imaging Testing
Finally, we work with local laboratories to conduct the following routine tests:
- CT scan
- Routine blood, stool, and urine tests
- Routine pap smears
Prescription referrals are available when medically necessary for medical imaging such as for MRI, MRA, CT Scan, Diagnostic Ultrasound.
In addition, your Physician may provide you with a prescription referral to see a medical Specialist for endoscopy, colonoscopy, Cardiovascular Stress Test, etc, if medically necessary.
