Comprehensive Wellness Profile

Diagnostic and Functional Medicine Testing

At Salus Integrative Medicine, finding the root cause of a patient’s ailments is of the utmost importance. As we collect the information derived from testing, we design a personalized course of action to achieve overall wellness and optimal health goals.

Functional Medicine Testing:

  • Adrenal Stress Test
  • Amino Acid Profile

    An Amino acid profile is a blood test to assess the levels of these protein building blocks which are needed to build healthy tissues throughout the body, such as hair, muscle, neurotransmitters and immune cells. This is important for people with hair loss, depression, fatigue, and especially useful for vegans and vegetarians to determine if you are getting enough protein.

  • Biotoxin Illness Testing (mold, Lyme, etc)
  • Blood Typing and Secretor Status Collection Kit

    Take the next step in understanding your genetic individuality through cutting-edge DNA analysis. You may already know your blood type, but did you know that some people secrete their blood type antigen into other body fluids such as saliva and tears? Scientists have determined that your secretor status – secretor or non-secretor – plays a profound role in your health. Knowing your secretor type empowers you to further refine your Blood Type Diet and take strategic control of your own wellness and lifestyle choices.

    Our single-use Secretor Status Collection Kit uses the latest in Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping to determine your FUT2 secretor status (secretor, or non-secretor). Simply swipe the cotton swab provided in the test kit along the inside of your cheek, insert the swab into our convenient packaging, let it dry out before putting the swab into the biohazard bag, attach the prepaid label, and send the specimen to our lab. You will receive your secretor status results within 21 business days.

    We use a special 6 hour urine collection to assess your total body burden of mercury, lead, arsenic and cadmium. This goes beyond a blood test which can only measure current exposure.

    Urine test that measures neurotransmitter metabolites. This is important for those with sleep problems, depression and other mood disorders.
