OATS TEST

GREAT PLAINS-ORGANIC ACIDS TEST (OAT)

The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormal toxic levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, affect energy levels and immune function. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete one or more abnormal organic acids. The cause of these toxic levels include: oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, and genetic factors.

If abnormalities are detected in the OAT, treatment can include supplements, vitamins, antioxidants and dietary modification. Upon treatment, patients and physicians have reported significant improvement such as decreased fatigue, regular bowel movements, increased energy and alertness, increased concentration, improved verbal skills, less hyperactivity, and decreased abdominal pain.

FOOD ALLERGY IGG

GREAT PLAINS-IGG FOOD ALLERGY TEST + CANDIDA

The IgG Food Allergy Test w/ Candida is a useful guide for structuring elimination diets in many chronic conditions. Sometimes referred to as "delayed allergies", IgG food reactions require removal of the offending foods for several months to years. Individuals with neurological, gastrointestinal, and movement disorders often suffer from IgG-mediated food reactions. These people may continue to eat offending foods, unaware of their potential effects. The 93 foods tested in the IgG Food Allergy Test w/ Candida will identify the offending food so they can be eliminated from the diet. This elimination of IgG

Functional Blood Chemistry

Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis

Blood tests have been used as a tool for measuring health for a long time. However, they have been used primarily as a means for diagnosing disease. Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis is a fresh new look at an old tool of measure with the intention of preventing disease before it takes hold of one's health.

Current research and scientific study within the medical field has opened new doors into how nutrition professionals look at markers in the blood for nutritional deficiencies and imbalances. A comprehensive blood chemistry panel can give a nutrition professional insight into developing problems and allow for a preventative course of action.

There really is no better health screen that is more efficient than a comprehensive blood test. It will also establish a baseline that can be used to track a person's health over time. When performed along with a comprehensive health evaluation it provides both the nutrition professional and the patient peace of mind knowing that a thorough screening has taken place.

Most healthcare providers today run very basic blood panels and try to diagnose a person's condition based upon limited information. However the whole story is based on the factors involved with the individual. When all of the blood chemistry markers are looked at as a whole, it provides a much more complete picture as to how healthy, or ill, the patient.

What is the difference between a Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis and “regular” blood testing?

When interpreting blood chemistry lab results, there is a Functional Range and a Pathological Range. Test values that fall between the Functional Range and the Pathological Range are considered sub clinical and can indicate the beginning stages of disease. They should be used as markers, indicating something that is not as good as it should be; or they can be a sign of a developing condition that is not bad enough to treat medically, at this point.

Most health practitioners today use only the Pathological Ranges and do not address the sub clinical findings until they become a serious medical condition. The goal is to identify developing nutritional problems and prevent them from manifesting into a serious medical condition. This help us discover the true path to health and a better quality life.
