Diagnostic testing

Advanced diagnostic testing for fertility and overall wellness

1. Female hormone panel (eFHP) test
A non-invasive test that is taken over the course of the menstrual cycle. Eleven saliva samples are collected over different days of the cycle to assess estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) levels.

We use this test to look for:

  • Luteal phase defects
  • Double ovulation
  • Early ovulation
  • No ovulation
  • Early pregnancy problems
  • Endometriosis
  • Estrogen and/or progesterone dominance
  • FSH surges
  • LH surges
  • Corpus luteum response
  • Potential cystic ovaries

2. Male hormone panel (eMHP) test
A non-invasive test that involves a saliva sample. It tests for DHEA, androstenedione, testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, estrone, progesterone, FSH, and LH levels.

We use this test to look for:

  • Low sperm count
  • Low sperm motility
  • Morphology problems
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction

3. Adrenal stress index (ASI) test
Measures cortisol, DHEA, insulin, gliadin antibodies, 17-hydroxyprogesterone, and total salivary sIgA during a circadian cycle. This test is useful in the evaluation of hypothalamic-adrenal function and the impact that stress has had on it.

4. Hair sample test
A test that involves a sample sample of hair taken from the nape of the neck or the pubic region. This test shows deficiencies or excess in mineral and vitamin concentrations, as well as toxic metals that are present in the body.

The test is very useful in determining:

  • Estrogen dominance
  • Copper toxicity
  • Mercury toxicity
  • Minerals that are not being absorbed
  • Glucose issues
  • Adrenal function
