Zawada Health offers a multitude of lab testing to help uncover the cause of illness and disease while giving your Naturopathic Doctor increased insight into how to help you regain balance.
Blood tests: Using LifeLabs and Rocky Mountain Analytical and Dynacare to process our tests, blood results can yield information about everything from cholesterol and blood glucose to more specific markers of disease, inflammation and imbalance.
Urinalysis: Analyzing a urine sample gives us insight into many systems of the body, including electrolytes, kidney function and hydration levels. It also enables your Naturopathic Doctor to assess and diagnose urinary tract infections.
DUTCH Test: For women, this test is used to detect hormonal imbalances that may be contributing to premenstrual symptoms (PMS), weight gain, fatigue, low libido, mood swings, depression, and menopausal symptoms. For men, this test is used to monitor hormonal levels that may be contributing to weight gain, fatigue, low libido, depression, hair loss, sleep disturbances, and/or increased prostate cancer risk.
Salivary Hormone testing: A non-invasive diagnostic tool, salivary testing can assess hormone imbalance that leads to symptoms including decreased sex drive, mood swings and hot flashes. Through analyzing the levels of hormones in the saliva, valuable information is gained about stress, thyroid function, infertility, menopause and male hormones, helping to create a treatment plan specific to your needs.
Hair Analysis: Used to assess long-term deficiencies and toxicities of several nutrients and heavy metals, this technique allows us to understand the environmental cause of certain symptoms.
Food and Environmental Allergy Testing: By analyzing the reaction of the body to a panel of potential airborne and ingested allergens, we can help you to avoid specific stressors and decrease your symptoms.
Body Fat Analysis: Our body fat analyzer helps us to identify individuals with an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease and obesity.
