We provide metabolic testing by Genova Diagnostics. The purpose of metabolic testing is to provide insight into the patient’s nutritional status as well as the function of essential biochemical pathways that can help guide treatment.
We can measure the terrain of the gastrointestinal tract, antioxidant vitamins, toxic elements, fatty acids, amino acids, and markers of oxidation, toxic exposures, detoxification, and adrenal stress.
We find out exactly where you have blocks, imbalances, or deficiencies, and correct those issues in order to help your own body to build health.
Here are short synopses of some of the nutritional testing that we do, Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis, the ION panel, and the Adrenal stress and estrogen metabolism analysis. More details of each are in the sub-menus.
Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis 2.0™ (CDSA 2.0)
The Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis 2.0™ (CDSA 2.0) by is a gastrointestinal stool test which offers a comprehensive look at the overall health of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It helps identify inflammatory conditions such as IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), food allergies, NSAID enteropathy, and post-infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
The CDSA 2.0 stool analysis provides information using advanced biomarkers that evaluate digestion, absorption, pancreatic function, and inflammation, in addition to bacterial balance, yeast, and parasite infection.
These can lead to compromises in the immune system and difficulties eliminating toxic substances from the body. Over time, these deficiencies and imbalances, in association with a person’s own genetic uniqueness, can lead to disease.

ION® (Nutritional Test)
The ION® (Individual Optimal Nutrition) is a combination of nutritional tests that measure levels vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and organic, fatty and amino acids. Using the combination of nutritional testing profiles, the ION® offers a complete evaluation of nutritional functions that impact patients’ mental and physical well-being.
Adrenocortex Stress Profile
Adrenocortex Stress Profile is a powerful and precise noninvasive salivary hormone test that evaluates bioactive levels of the body’s important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. This hormone test (stress test) serves as a critical tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances underlying anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, dysglycemia, and a host of other clinical conditions.
This hormone test examines 4 saliva samples over a 24-hour period for levels of cortisol and DHEA. This hormone test (stress test) serves as a critical tool Picture for uncovering biochemical imbalances underlying anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, dysglycemia, and a host of other clinical conditions. This hormone test examines 4 saliva samples over a 24-hour period for levels of cortisol and DHEA.
Estrogen Metabolism Test
The Estrogen Metabolism Assessment is a hormone test which evaluates how estrogen is being processed in the body. This hormone test yields clinical insight into many estrogen-dependent conditions and provides an important tool for monitoring dietary, lifestyle, and hormone therapies. Specifically, the Estrogen Metabolism Assessment tests hydroxyestrogens in urine, providing a rapid, convenient way to evaluate clinical interventions (including hormone therapy, diet, and lifestyle changes) aimed at optimizing estrogen metabolism.
