Salivary hormone analysis: Assessing adrenal and sex hormone levels, stressors & catabolic/anabolic balance, and their relationship to intestinal and overall systemic function.
A deep dive into Cortisol, Melatonin and Secretory IgA – the 1st line of immune defence by the body.

Dried Blood Spot

Discussing the intestinal mucosal barrier: An in-depth analysis of intestinal permeability, inflammation, dysbiosis and food sensitivity, as well the use of the FLUIDS iQ’s Intestinal iQ™ series of tests in its assessment.
The microbiome, its relationship to nutrition and a multitude of inflammatory processes, with emphasis on how this impacts immune balance and autoimmune diseases in the body.
An in-depth discussion of the tests that comprise FLUIDS iQ’s Intestinal iQ™ series, emphasizing Zonulin (permeability) as well as Histamine/Diamine Oxidase (inflammation and barrier integrity). In addition, tests for IgG food sensitivity and Candida are highlighted.
