This data is crucial in being pro-active in correcting the dysfunctions and bring your blood chemistry back into normal ranges for healthy people.
The process is easy and cost-effective, especially if the process is done before significant disease states have emerged; however, the longer you wait to identify and fix problem areas, the more expensive and difficult the solution will be.
Our in-house metabolic tests are an effective way to identify body systems that are not working properly.
We perform multiple in-office tests to determine your overall health level. We combine these tests with a thorough examination and listening to you.
