Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
Analyzes the flexibility and adaptability of the autonomic nervous system and the circulatory system

Terrain Analysis (TA)
Analyzes the "terrain" -- gut ecology, digestion, absorption, metabolism, and nutrient status

  • Bowel Toxicity Test* - Overgrowth of microbes (dysbiosis) and production of toxins

  • Macronutrient Digestive Test - fat, carbohydrate, and protein digestion, absorption, assimilation; also liver/gallbladder function, kidney function, calcium loss, and inflammatory by-products of protein digestion

  • Adrenal Stress Test - adrenal glands hormone production

  • Calcium Test - calcium levels in the blood and urine

Nitric Oxide Test*
Nitric oxide status -- an important substance that regulates circulation

Oxidative stress test
Measure oxidative stress load indicating the level of need for antioxidants
