Testing

Disease is only a healthy response to an unhealthy environment.” -Brian Schaefer

Disease doesn’t happen overnight. Our lifestyle habits, stressors, emotional response, poor nutrition, and untreated long-term imbalances converge to become chronic illnesses over time. These factors slowly start to wear down our health and lower our quality of life. Rather than trying to assign a label or diagnosis, or chase the symptoms of ill health, Red Mountain Natural Medicine understands that illness is a complex mix of causes and utilizes cutting edge lab testing and assessment tools to uncover the root cause of your unique health challenges.

The following tests are a few of the tools that our doctor’s utilize to move you towards your goal of maximizing health. In most cases, very few laboratory tests will need to be performed. Please contact our office if you have any questions, or would like to begin the consultation process.

Organic Acids Test
The Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides an accurate snapshot of what is going in inside your gut and your body. Besides offering the most complete and accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria, it also provides information on important neurotransmitters, nutritional markers, glutathione status, oxalate metabolism, and much more. The test includes 74 urinary metabolite markers that can be very useful for discovering underlying causes of chronic illness.
DUTCH Complete
The Dutch Complete is a cutting-edge product. This test is a comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones and their metabolites. It also includes the daily, free cortisol pattern, organic acids, melatonin (6-OHMS), and 8-OHdG.
Biological Terrain Assessment
A Biological Terrain Assessment (BioTerrain) is a measure of overall health. During a BioTerrain consultation, the doctor will review blood, urine, and saliva to assess your current “biological terrain”. Your doctor will use this information to help you begin the healing process and prevent future disease.
DNA Testing
DNA Testing helps you uncover hidden causes of chronic disease. Dr. Rostenberg believes your genes are not your destiny, but they are your tendency when under stress. Your doctor can make diet and supplement recommendations that better match your genetic tendencies.
