Lab Testing

Tracey only offers lab tests that she has researched extensively and tried on herself, family and willing friends (she has great family and friends). Lab tests are costly, but are so informative. We learn so much by looking under the surface!

Please note that diagnostic lab tests will only be ordered for active clients that have purchased a package or are enrolled in the quarterly coaching plan. All diagnostics labs require a review and interpretation by Tracey.

The GI-MAP (GI Microbial Assay Plus) stool test utilizes cutting edge, Quantitative PCR technology to provide a true DNA/PCR based stool test. This technology has high sensitivity, specificity and a rapid turnaround. The GI pathogens include bacteria, parasites and viruses. Continuing with this platform, the GI-MAP measures opportunistic organisms, normal flora, fungi, parasites and antibiotic resistance genes. And the Plus refers to immunologic markers for GI health and function including SIgA, Elastase, Calprotectin and Anti-gliadin testing.

The Great Plains Laboratory, Inc. (GPL) is a research-based clinical laboratory offering testing for nutritional factors in chronic illnesses such as autism, AD(H)D, fibromyalgia, and gastrointestinal and neuropsychiatric disorders. We provide a variety of metabolic tests including those for immune deficiency, amino acids, essential fatty acids, glutathione levels, inflammation, metal toxicity, toxic chemicals, genetic SNPs, and food allergies.

Tracey has attended the three-day Master Practitioner’s Workshop with The Great Plains Laboratory. She is skilled at interpreting many of the phenomenal tests offered by this Kansas-based company.

As an example, the Organic Acids Test (OAT) Nutritional & Metabolic Profile is a simple urine test which is collected and sent off for analysis. Tracey has found this test to coordinate well with nutrigenomics assessments and offer great benefit to uncovering the root cause of health problems or optimizing general health.

GPL is the only lab in the U.S. currently offering a urine test to assess your level of glyphosate exposure. Glyphosate is an herbicide and is the primary chemical in Roundup ™.

GPL offers testing for many common toxic chemical exposures thru their GPL-TOX: Toxic Non-Metal Chemical Profile.  GPL-TOX screens for 172 different environmental pollutants using 18 different metabolites, all from a single urine sample.

The new GPL-MycoTOX screens for seven different mycotoxins, from four species of mold, in one urine sample. Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage. With our new GPL-MycoTOX Profile, we can identify mycotoxin exposures and make recommendations for detoxification treatments that have been effective. Link to GPL-MycoTOX Brochure is HERE.

DUTCH hormone testing

DUTCH stands for Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones. Is this a test you might be interested in? Do you suffer from these symptoms?

  • Fatigue
  • Low sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Thinning hair
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Memory loss
  • Irregular periods
  • Breast tenderness
  • Acne
  • Insomnia

All these symptoms could be a result of hormone deficiencies and imbalances which could affect both men and women as we age! Testing can help you discover the root cause of your imbalances and get you back on your way to optimal health! You have the option of testing cortisol, sex hormones, or both.

Please see the document links below for more information on this easy to complete at home urine test.

Tracey will directly mail you this test kit. You will watch an instructional video on how to collect the urine samples on test strips, let them dry and then mail the strips back to the lab company for processing.

The Basics of Hormone Testing

Meridian Valley Lab

The Kraft Prediabetes Profile (Bloodspot)

Meridian Valley Lab’s Kraft Prediabetes Profile is a timed test that measures the patient’s insulin response to a measured glucose challenge and return to baseline over a 4-hour period.  This test looks at patterns of insulin response rather than a strict cut-off point for glucose.  These patterns delineate the severity of insulin resistance, as a patient progresses from normal insulin sensitivity to postprandial hyperinsulinemia to the insulinopenic state found in beta-cell exhaustion.  This spectrum of insulin response allows the clinician to identify insulin resistance early in its development.  (This holds true even when fasting and 2 hour post-challenge glucose levels are normal and fasting insulin is below 10μIU/mL.)

Kraft Prediabetes Profile (Bloodspot) Instructions

VIBRANT MICRONUTRIENT TEST

The only test that provides a comprehensive extracellular and intracellular assessment of the levels of the most important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids and amino acids.

You can see a sample of the Micronutrient test report HERE. 

Wheat Zoomer

The most comprehensive, sensitive and specific test on the market to determine the spectrum of wheat and gluten related disorders. Vibrant’s Wheat Zoomer is a health analytics tool built to assist in the detection of wheat and gluten related disorders. It aids in the specific recognition of antibodies to wheat peptides-including gluten and non-gluten components along with intestinal permeability. The Wheat Zoomer allows detection of protein antibodies associated with wheat and gluten sensitivities for information to reduce, monitor and manage the inflammatory effects of those sensitivities.

You can see a sample of the Wheat Zoomer test report HERE. 

Neural Zoomer

Neural Zoomer is an array of neurological proteins which offers very specific antibody-to-antigen recognition. Neural Zoomer is designed to assess an individual’s reactivity to neurological antigens.

The Neural Zoomer has optional additional genetic testing for the ApoE genotype, which has been shown to influence risk of certain neurological conditions. There are three different versions (alleles) of the ApoE gene; 2, 3, and 4. You inherit one copy from each of your parents, therefore can have any combination of two of those alleles.

Quicksilver Scientific

Mercury Tri-Test

The Quicksilver Scientific Mercury Tri-Test is the only clinical test that utilizes mercury speciation analysis, a patented advanced technology that separates methyl mercury (MeHg) from inorganic mercury (HgII) and measures each directly. Quicksilver Scientific’s instruments are sensitive enough to measure ambient mercury levels in the body WITHOUT THE NEED FOR CHALLENGE TESTING. This laboratory test provides unprecedented information for the healthcare practitioner, allowing them to assess the patient’s exposure sources, body burden and ability to excrete each form of mercury. This detailed information helps build an informed picture and allows the clinician to plan a rational approach to successful detoxification strategy for the patient.
