Antioxidant-level Testing

”The amount of antioxidants that you will maintain in your body is directly proportional to how long you will live.” ~ Dr. Richard Cutler, director of anti-aging research at the National Institute of Health.

Tri Holistic Nutrition utilizes a noninvasive scanning device to determine your current antioxidant levels. This measurement provides a convenient and useful indicator for monitoring oxidative stress in the body’s tissues. This two-minute hand scan uses a safe, LED blue light to measure skin carotenoid levels, providing an immediate reading. Research suggests that the skin’s carotenoid level is a good indication of your body’s overall antioxidant defense system.

Your score can be tracked over time as you increase consumptions of nutrients. Tracking the score empowers you to make positive lifestyle changes to improve your health. If you are already taking supplements, tracking your score is an effective way to determine if the supplements are working. Not all supplements are equally effective. Scanning will reveal how well your supplements are protecting you.

Each day we are exposed to free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that steal an electron from other molecules creating a domino effect of damaged molecules or DNA. Premature aging and deterioration of health are often a result of free-radical damage. We are all aging, but at a different rates. Those who have a higher score are better able to protect their bodies from free radical damage than those with a low score, and as a result age “better” and stay healthier longer.

Organic Acids Testing

Tri Holistic Nutrition offers an Organic Acids Test (OAT) by Great Plains Laboratory which can help discover the underlying causes of chronic Illness. The OAT offers an accurate metabolic snapshot of what is going on in the body including yeast and bacteria overgrowth, neurotransmitter, oxalate metabolism and more.

 

Food Sensitivities Testing IgG4 Antibody Profile by  US BioTek

Food sensitivities can occur at any age, triggering many different symptoms and contributing to a variety of disorders including but not limited to:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Gas/bloating
  • Asthma
  • Joint inflammation
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Skin problems/eczema
  • Sinusitis
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety

The Blood-spot IgG4 Food Antibody Profile measures levels of IgG4 antibodies in 96 commonly offending foods, identifying foods causing reactions.

Food sensitivities and intolerances are different than the classic immediate food reactions or true allergies. The latter happen immediately or within three hours of eating. On the other hand, food sensitivities are delayed reactions. For example, eczema that appears days after exposure to an offending food could be related to various foods consumed. Testing for food sensitivities is an efficient way to find out which foods your body does not tolerate well or is sensitive too. Eliminating the offending food often helps to reduce or eliminate symptoms.

Once a test is preformed and the lab results are obtained, a specific diet will be designed to meet your needs, eliminating the offending foods for a given period of time. Often a food that has been completely eliminated from the diet can be reintroduced back after a period of time.
