Our labs and testing partners are pioneers in the field through whom we provide state of the art testing solutions for our patients. We are authorized distributors of Genova Diagnostics test kits and BabyGenes new born screening test kits.
Why do we need specialised testing?
You have been examined by your doctor and have completed your blood tests and other diagnostics only to be told that your test results are within normal range. What then could be the problem behind that nagging symptom? You are left clueless. You are expected to wait till you get abnormal values. Your normal lab reports only tell that you are not diseased yet. Consequently, your blood tests or scans would show the damage already done to your system. Pathological lab findings diagnose disease. Conventional medical training teaches physicians to evaluate blood chemistry using fixed ranges that determine pathology. If pathology is not present, the patient is considered “healthy.”
A proper understanding of health is needed for optimal living. At Heal Wellness, we understand that correct diagnosis is the first step towards helping you heal. While evaluating our clients, we look for an optimal range in selective blood chemistries. This helps us to some extent in diagnosis. But for answers to your health questions or symptoms further analysis is needed. With personalized nutritional testing from Genova Diagnostics, you can find exact answers to your health questions, and to identify individual biochemical needs and fine-tune treatment. As with most disease states, the ability to predict what we are at risk for at the earliest stages and preventative care is ideal.
No two people are exactly alike. In addition to our unique outward appearance, the way our body functions inside is very much dependent on our individual genetic and environmental influences. We have special needs for dietary nutrients that maintain healthy tissues and fight the processes of disease, degeneration, and accelerated aging. Some people need certain nutrients many times higher than the “normal” dietary intake to allow for the restoration of health. If we don’t need them, however, using very high doses of nutrient supplements can cause other imbalances. Nutritional correction based on individual test results helps create balance and promotes youthfulness, energy, mental clarity and general good health, while helping prevent disease state. The path to optimal health becomes clearer and we gain control over our health. Specialized testing is done to evaluate amino acids, fatty acids, oxidative stress, Vitamin levels, mitochondrial function, nutrient & toxic elements, hormones etc., besides food allergies, bone health, gastrointestinal health, adrenal function etc.
Functional Labs: About Genova Diagnostics
Contrary to pathological diagnosis which identifies disease, functional medical testing identifies the biochemical processes unique to the patient, which define the onset of a chronic condition. These are the imbalances that trigger your symptoms and determine the conditions that make you vulnerable to chronic diseases. Functional medicine is anchored by an examination of the core clinical imbalances that underlie various disease conditions. The specialised tests from functional labs are capable of identifying any imbalances in the body through advanced comprehensive or individualized panels in Nutrition , Environmental, Endocrinology, Toxicity, Gastro Intestinal & Immune Functions and Genetics. With this, we can go on to diagnose, treat and even prevent diseases before they occur.
Headquartered in Asheville, NC, Genova Diagnostics is a global leader in functional laboratory testing and a pioneer in innovative new approaches to personalized medicine. Unlike traditional labs that focus on disease pathology, Genova offers comprehensive panels that combine standard and innovative biomarkers to provide a more complete understanding of specific biological systems. As more patients take an active role in managing their health, and clinicians focus on prevention, these diagnostic tests provide a more complete picture of health and help identify problems before chronic conditions and diseases develop. Chronic diseases are often complex and Genova’s system-based testing helps physicians develop targeted treatments for their patients. Easy-to-read colour graphic reports synthesise test results into actionable information and facilitate physician-patient communication. Color graphic reports facilitate physician-patient communication and development of a personalized approach to optimal health. The internationally renowned lab is committed to the highest professional standards and has a team of medical experts who provide consultation to healthcare professionals, as well as a robust array of educational resources ensuring that physicians order the right tests for their patients.
COMPREHENSIVE LINE OF FUNCTIONAL TESTING
Many patients experience chronic illnesses because of nutritional deficiencies.The Genova NutrEval® offers nutritional recommendations based on a patient’s individual test results. Clinicians commonly use such testing to determine the nutritional deficiencies that are at the root of chronic conditions such as:
- Mood disorder
- Sleep disturbance
- Fibromyalgia or Fatigue
- Optimized health and sports fitness
Recognized as a pioneer and leader in laboratory functional testing, Genova Diagnostics has developed an unique endocrine line, establishing itself as the only laboratory to offer comprehensive hormone testing in all three matrices: blood, saliva, and now, urine. Employing state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and world-class medical education, Genova Diagnostics strives to lead the field of endocrine diagnostics. Genova Diagnostics offers expertise in blood, saliva and urine hormone testing, and related genomic evaluations, to provide the most accurate and comprehensive diagnostics for the prevention and treatment of hormone-related symptoms and conditions.
Toxic body burden is the lifelong accumulation of chemicals to which we are exposed through our food, air, and environment. This accumulation is not without consequences, and chronic health conditions like autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as cancer and even diabetes, have been associated with ongoing exposure to environmental toxins. Genova Diagnostics has a line of tests identify the areas of toxic burden that could be related to chronic, intractable symptoms in patients. The environmental line of tests assesses the body’s ability to metabolize and eliminate specific agents from the body, thus providing important clues about the body’s susceptibility to chemical sensitivities and toxic burden.
Your intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria, some beneficial, some neutral, and some that can be harmful. It is essential to know the microbial balance of your GI tract, especially if you have chronic health problems. Health enhancing intestinal bacteria serves to prevent the overgrowth of potentially harmful bacteria in the gut. Gastrointestinal testing can provide information that gives you and your health practitioner a better picture of your overall health.
- Requires only one, single sample collection
- Greater accuracy due to advanced technology DNA analysis
- Evaluates balance of microbes shown to contribute to weight gain
- To maintain good health
By decoding nearly 40,000 genes in the human body, the Human Genome Project opened up an entirely new spectrum of knowledge, offering tremendous potential to improve your health. Genovations TM — genetic testing from Genova Diagnostics — harnesses the power of these insights. Many people mistakenly assume that the presence of a certain gene – or a genetic flaw – means they are destined to experience the associated disease. This is not true! Most genes have flexible expressions and often are influenced by modifiable environmental, diet and lifestyle factors. Experts believe that nearly all of the most pervasive, disabling and deadly degenerative diseases, including heart disease, adult- onset diabetes, cancer and senile dementia, develop from an ongoing interaction between genetic and environmental factors. Poor diet; chronic nutritional deficiencies; hormone imbalances;
unhealthy lifestyle habits; bacterial infection; toxic exposure to
cigarette smoke, air pollution or other substances; excessive
alcohol consumption; sun exposure or bacterial infection can play a role in whether or not disease develops. Over time these harmful agents and conditions can switch on a gene’s ability to promote disease.
By evaluating a carefully selected group of genetic variants, each Genovations TM profile provides a glimpse into your potential health future. The advantage: you will be empowered to modify the expression of disease years before a condition might other- wise develop. Genetic testing enables you to minimize risk.
