Causenta Comprehensive Stool Analysis and GI Function Panel

A comprehensive GI test is conducted to make sure that you avoid eating foods that are harmful to you and that we address any digestion/absorption issues. The tests panels above utilize the most cutting-edge technology available from the top labs in the United States. Maldigesting, malabsorption, abnormal gut flora and ecology, as well as many complex chronic illnesses and symptoms, lie at the root of most common health complaints, including fatigue and weight gain.

Nutrition and digestive processes are central to long-term health. This panel helps pinpoint imbalances, provide clues about current symptoms and warns of potential problems should the imbalances progress. Some examples include: if you get gas shortly after eating most meals or have traveled outside the US and Canada, then you should have this test panel performed so we can check the microflora in your gut. Unexplained weight gain can often time be due to yeast over growth, which is detected as part of this panel. The process includes collecting stool specimens for three days in a row, shipping all three samples overnight to a specialty lab, and generating results and a report that will tell you which healthy bacteria are low and which unhealthy bacteria are high. The entire process takes about three weeks.

This test is normally performed only once per year. However, positive pathogenic organisms require follow-up testing in about 60-90 days after the initial results. Follow up testing is usually significantly less expensive. This test package includes the following:

    • Comprehensive Stool Analysis for GI Function (this test includes markers in the following categories)
  • Beneficial and dysbiotic flora
  • Mycology (yeast)
  • Parasitology
  • Digestive markers
  • Absorption markers
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Immunology marker
  • Infectious pathogens
  • Intestinal health markers
  • Biochemical analysis of short-chain fatty acids
  • Intestinal barrier function test

Causenta Comprehensive Micronutrient Analysis

There are many reasons why people have less than optimal health and get sick or injured. From a biochemical perspective, if you are low on certain building blocks (nutrients) then the body cannot produce what it needs and metabolism can be thrown off.
The necessary building blocks or nutrients include amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Low or inadequate levels of essential micronutrients can cause elevations in disease markers like homocysteine, hs-CRP, cholesterol, uric acid, Lp(a), and many other disease risk factors. By testing your body for these nutrients using WBCs we can get averages for the past 6 months of what your body was actually seeing and specifically determine the necessary changes in your diet or supplement plan. The process includes drawing 2-3 tubes of blood, shipping them overnight to a specialty lab, growing certain white blood cells for 2-3 weeks, and generating results and a report that will tell you the foods or supplements to add to your nutrition plan and when to take them. The entire process takes about three weeks. This test is usually performed once or twice per year.

  • Vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenate, Vitamin D, Vitamin E
  • Minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, Zinc
  • Amino Acids: Asparagine, Carnitine, Glutamine, Serine
  • Antioxidants: Coenzyme Q10, Cysteine, Glutathione, Total Antioxidant Function
  • Markers of Metabolism: Carbohydrate Metabolism, Fructose Intolerance, Glucose/Insulin Metabolism, Fatty Acids
  • Metabolites: Lipoic Acid, Oleic Acid, Choline, Inositol

Causenta Comprehensive Toxic Heavy Metal and Mineral Status

This panel uses red blood cells (RBCs), urine and stool to measure various mineral and toxic metals. Each sample (whole blood, red blood cells, fecal, or urine) offers a unique vantage point for assessing mineral status in your body. Using these mineral assessments, we can quickly pinpoint and treat toxic and nutrient imbalances that may be triggering chronic fatigue, depression, hyperactivity (children), “foggy” brain, stress, thyroid problems, hormone imbalances and many other health conditions. The process includes collecting urine and stool specimens, drawing two tubes of blood, shipping all three samples overnight to a specialty lab, and generating results and a report that will tell you the minerals are low in your body and the toxic heavy metals that are high. The entire process takes about three weeks. This test may be performed three or four times per year.

  • Fecal Heavy Metals
  • Antimony, Arsenic, Beryllium, Bismuth, Cadmium, Copper, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Platinum, Thallium, Tungsten, Uranium

Causenta Comprehensive Food Allergy/Sensitivity Panel

Approximately 80-90% of the population has some form of adverse reaction to one or more foods or additives that they are unaware of. This reaction can manifest in a broad range of disorders including weight gain, fatigue, migraine headache, hyperactivity/ADD, arthritis, breathing and skin disorders, recurring ear infections in children, and depression. This panel is necessary to remove foods that are negatively affecting your health and making it harder to lose body fat. This is a good test for most people because it uncovers food problems they usually don’t know about. It is used to set up a 6-month plan that involves a rotational diet. The process includes drawing eight tubes of blood, shipping all the samples overnight to two different specialty labs, and generating results and a report that will tell you the foods you can eat safely and the foods you should avoid. The entire process takes about three weeks. This test normally has to be performed once. In a certain situation where people have chronic allergies, it may have to be repeated after 6-12 months.

Causenta Viral Panel

Everyone has viruses in their bodies. Usually, they are inactive because a healthy immune system keeps them under control. In some people, one or more viruses can become active and create numerous problems. There is some debate whether it is the virus directly impairing health or some other factor, but a high viral load indicates that there is some form of immune dysfunction. The process consists of drawing three or four tubes of blood, shipping them overnight to a specialty lab and generating results and a report that will tell you if you have Epstein Barr Virus, Cytomegalovirus or Human Herpes Virus 6. The entire process takes about three weeks. This test would be performed once or twice per year.

The price includes collecting the blood, shipping to the lab and generating a report that will tell your status of past exposure or current active forms of any of these STDs. The results are usually generated within 1 week.

If diet, exercise or lifestyle protocols are needed for your complete wellness, then these will be provided once the lab results are reviewed by you. Customized, personalized supplement plans will be created based on your lab values, health goals, and health concerns. These monthly supplements plans will be reviewed with you before they are assembled into easy to manage breakfast, lunch, and dinner, pre-filled bags that you will take on a daily basis. This ease concerns about taking the correct supplements or the time in assembling daily supplements.
