Specialized Testing Q & A

What is specialized laboratory testing?

Specialized laboratory testing gives you the answers you need to better understand and cope with your illness or medical problem. This type of testing is often especially valuable for patients who struggle with chronic conditions. If you’re dealing with any of the following conditions, specialized laboratory testing might be helpful for you:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Gastrointestinal disorders like chronic heartburn, indigestion, or gallstones
  • Lyme disease
  • Obesity

Many chronic conditions are particularly difficult to manage because their true origins aren’t understood very well. Additionally, chronic conditions can be different for each man or woman affected, and this means that a “one size fits all” treatment strategy simply won’t work.

What are the most common underlying factors in chronic health conditions?

Specialized laboratory testing can identify underlying conditions that may have never even been considered. Some of the most common underlying factors are:

  • Gastrointestinal infections
  • Food allergies
  • Inhalant allergies
  • Heavy metal toxicity
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Chronic inflammation

With the information from the specialized testing in hand, Dr. Reichardt, DC, can work with you to create a customized solution.

What is a HealthSnap assessment?

A HealthSnap assessment is a comprehensive wellness analysis that includes a series of questions about nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle habits. Your assessment also includes a biomechanical and cardiovascular assessment and computerized range-of-motion testing to produce a highly detailed snapshot of your overall health and wellness.

What happens after my specialized testing?

After your specialized testing, your Center for Health care provider gives you a seven-page report that’s filled with details about your health and wellness. Your report can help you identify the problems going on with your health and details the ways that you can become healthier.

Your specialized testing can give you detailed diet and nutrition guidance, including specific food suggestions and a recommendation for optimal water intake. You can even learn exactly how many calories you need each day, with the protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and other needs detailed as well.

Using the knowledge from your specialized testing and the Center for Health team’s personalized guidance, you can prioritize your health issues and develop an actionable plan to resolve the problems.
