Comprehensive Hormone Testing
Hormones regulate all of our bodies functions – from sex drive to building muscle and metabolism, our hormones play a vital role in our health and wellbeing. Does your body feel sluggish, heavy, and uncomfortable? Has your sex drive gone down or are you experiencing PMS symptoms? Assessing hormones is an indispensable aspect of getting your body back on track! Hormones are often assessed via blood testing but at Regenerate Health we primarily do urine testing. By measuring the urine at specific time points, we can see how the body is producing, metabolizing and excreting. This is by far the most accurate method to determine your hormonal cycle as well as the effects of hormone replacement therapy.
Heavy Metal Panel
It’s a toxic world out there. Lead, mercury, arsenic, and many other metals can shut down the body’s ability to function. These metals can affect all of your body’s systems especially the nervous system. If you or a loved one has unexplained symptoms of diseases such as neuropathy, Parkinson’s, or dementia, this test is a must to determine if heavy metals are a burden to the body.
