In order to create an appropriate treatment plan that is individualized and patient-centered, we take a science-based approach with advanced laboratory testing that allows us to see a comprehensive picture of a patient’s overall health and helps us to discover the underlying causes of disease. "Knowing" empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the patient’s health issues.
This assessment is great for establishing a baseline of your current health and for monitoring progress to optimal health. It provides a comprehensive, overall picture of your health: red and white blood cell count, biochemistry of organs such as liver and kidney, blood electrolytes, lipids, thyroid hormones, and metabolic markers. Your healthcare provider may also recommend testing for additional markers, depending on the symptoms presented. Samples for the Healthy Living Panel must be collected after prolonged fasting of 12 to 14 hours.
The thyroid gland is a crucial control organ that is responsible for overall metabolism, growth and life maintenance. When thyroid hormone levels are out of balance, so are you. Thyroid Assessments may be recommended when hyper- or hypothyroidism (excessive or insufficient thyroid activity, respectively) is suspected or when other hormonal imbalances are present.
The Basic Thyroid Assessment examines:
The Enhanced Thyroid Assessment includes the following tests:
To assess the risk of cardiovascular disease, the Lipids Assessment may be recommended. This test offers reports on important cardiovascular health markers such as cholesterol, triglycerides, and the lipid transport proteins LDL and HDL. This test is best done after fasting.
The Fatigue Assessment provides insight into common causes of frequent and chronic fatigue, which may be related to anemias, chronic mononucleosis, and hypothyroidism. The Fatigue Assessment may be recommended in the presence of low cortisol or when clinical signs and symptoms of general malaise are evident. This test covers:
Metabolic syndrome is a group of risk factors that increase the chance of developing heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes. Your healthcare provider may recommend the Metabolic Assessment (Fasting) if you have abdominal obesity, high blood sugar, elevated triglycerides, high blood pressure, and low HDL levels. The Metabolic Assessment may also be recommended in the presence of certain hormone patterns, such as elevated cortisol, high androgen levels in women, and low androgen levels in men. Like the Healthy Living Panel, this test must be done after fasting.
The Metabolic Assessment examines:
A food allergy/sensitivity is an inflammatory response of the immune system to a food trigger or allergen. It is only after a period of continuous exposure to the trigger (chronic inflammatory response) that we can experience symptoms.
Here at Beta Wellness, we offer the following food-related allergy tests:
1. Combo E-95 & A-95 Panel
The Combo Food Panel tests for 189 food allergies, plus a Candida Screen.
2. E-95 Basic Food Panel
The E-95 Basic Food Panel tests for 94 of the most commonly eaten foods, plus a Candida Screen.
3. A-95 Additional Food Panel
4. Inhalant Panel
The Inhalant Panel tests for 36 IgE Allergens, specific to the region you reside in.
5. Food & Inhalant Combo Panel
The Food & Inhalant Combo Panel tests for 189 IgG4 food sensitivities, Candida, and 36 IgE inhalant allergens specific to your region.
6. The Rocky Mountain Analytical (RMA) FST™ IgG Food Sensitivity test has three different options for testing IgG antibodies:
a) RMA FST™ Enhanced:
Our most comprehensive panel, the Enhanced panel tests for 222 different foods, including 80+ foods not available in the Basic panel. This panel is especially popular with patients who eat less meat, wheat, and refined sugar. This panel has the potential to identify more foods that the patient may be intolerant to; thereby providing you more robust information.
b) RMA FST™ Vegetarian:
Our Vegetarian panel tests over 160 different foods including all of the vegetarian foods offered in the Enhanced panel, as well as dairy and eggs, but excluding fish/seafood and meat.
c) RMA FST™ Basic:
The Basic panel reports on 125 foods, including the most common food sensitivities in all categories: milk (cow, goat, and sheep), eggs, corn, and wheat.
7. Celiac/Gluten Sensitivity Panel 1+Panel 2
Tests Gluten/ Gliadin igG, Gliadin IgA, Transglutaminase IgA, and Wheat IgE
8. Food Safe Bloodspot (finger prick)
Tests 96 different Allergens and Candida most commonly used for testing food allergies in children.
Urinalysis is a simple test of your urine (pee) sample, which can provide important clinical information about:
This is a urinary nutritional evaluation that examines key organic acids and amino acids to evaluate the functional need for antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, digestive support, amino acids, toxic and nutritional elements.
Studies suggest that even a balanced diet may not be able to provide all the essential nutrients and unaddressed nutritional insufficiencies may be at the root of complex chronic conditions.
The report also contains dynamic biochemical pathway charts for clearer understanding of:
The Organix® Comprehensive Profile is a nutritional test providing insights into endogenous organic acids and the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Identifying nutritional deficiencies that can be easily corrected allows us to create a catered program that leads to improved health outcomes.
It is valuable for determining:
Toxic metals can build up in our bodies and adversely affect every organ system. Analysis of toxic metal levels in urine is achieved by administering a chelating agent/chelator (EDTA, DMSA, DMPS) and comparing urine element concentrations before and after administration of the chelator to reveal the net retention of potentially toxic elements. Two chelating agents, EDTA and DMPS, are introduced intravenously while DMSA is given orally prior to urine collection.
Iodine/iodide is an essential element that is crucial for normal function of the thyroid gland and healthy breast tissue. This test helps to assess urinary iodide excretion.
We use dry urine testing methods for male and female patients to assess their hormonal and reproductive health.
Estrone Estradiol Estriol
Pregnanediol (Progesterone Metabolite)
Four-Point Cortisol and Cortisone
Free T3 Free T4
Kynurenic Acid Urine
This is the most comprehensive stool test that can reveal hidden conditions that other stool tests may overlook. It provides valuable information on digestion, absorption, pancreatic function and inflammation, in addition to bacterial balance and yeast and parasite infection. With this information, we are able to develop personalized treatment recommendations.
Test biomarkers are grouped and scored in 5 key areas relating to GI function:
SIBO Profiles are non-invasive breath tests which capture exhaled hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4) gases following patient ingestion of a lactulose solution to evaluate bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine.
Conditions commonly associated with SIBO include:
