Dr. Paige implements and recommends many different tests based off your health conditions.

MicroNutrient Testing

Why use the SpectraCell Micronutrient test?

What truly makes our test unique is that it measures the functional level and capability of micronutrients present within white blood cells, where metabolism takes place and where micronutrients do their job—thus taking a person’s biochemical individuality into account. Unlike static serum measurements, which only assess the concentration of nutrients present outside of the cell (extracellular) and only provide a glimpse of your health, SpectraCell’s Micronutrient test is a long term assessment (4-6 months) that addresses the functional impact (performance) of micronutrients—what really matters.

Clinical Applications:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Neurological disorders/Alzheimer’s
  • Autism and other spectrum disorders
  • Mood disorders
  • Fatigue
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fertility issues
  • Weight issues
  • Sports performance optimization

Food Sensitivity Testing – At Home Finger Stick

Why Use the US BioTek Food Sensitivity Test?

The foods you eat may be impacting your health more than you know. In fact, many non-seemingly related conditions–from IBS and digestive problems to migraines and mood disorders to acne and eczema–may actually be correlated to adverse food reactions. Unlike food allergies, reactions from food sensitivities may occur hours or even days after eating the offending food. Delayed food sensitivities, known as IgG-mediated reactions, are sometimes blamed on aging or other environmental factors. Most sufferers are unaware that their symptoms are related to the food they are eating.

US BioTek offers a simpler way to get tested using an at-home finger stick blood sample. All their tests are run twice, so you never have to second guess the results. After you collect a blood sample and send it to their laboratory for analysis, easy to interpret results are sent back to your healthcare provider with a personalized plan for your specific food sensitivities.

pH Level

Research shows that unless the body’s pH level is slightly alkaline, the body cannot heal itself. So, no matter what type of modality you choose to use to take care of your health problem, it won’t be as effective until the pH level is up. If your body’s pH is not balanced, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements. Your bodies pH affects everything.

Food Sensitivity Testing – Lab Blood Draw

Why use the Cell Science Alcat Food Sensitivity Test?

What makes the Alcat Test unique is that it measures immune cell response to specific foods, additives, and other dietary items. The Alcat Test measures food sensitivities which are often delayed, low grade, and chronic. Therefore, someone may not be aware that chronic symptoms are caused by foods regularly consumed or other substances frequently encountered. More than 450 individual substances can be tested from a single blood draw. Nearly 250 foods can be tested, with special consideration given to gluten and dairy sensitivities.
