Genova NutrEval Micronutrient Testing
This test provides the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available by measuring functional deficiencies at the cellular level. It is an assessment of how well the body utilizes 33 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites, while conveying the body’s need for these micronutrients that enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones, and other substances essential for proper growth, development, and good health.
This test provides the basis of a personalized, functional approach in addressing a broad variety of clinical conditions including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders, metabolic disorders and micronutrient deficiencies. This test can be drawn in our office, by appointment, any day before NOON.

Antimicrobial susceptibility testing to prescriptive and natural agents is also performed for appropriate bacterial and fungal species at no additional charge. This test will be done in the comfort of your own home, and purchased in the office.
This test is useful for:
Skin Conditions (Atopic Dermatitis)
MTHFR Gene Testing
MTHFR is associated with elevated levels of the toxic amino acid homocysteine. Individuals with specific mutations of the MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) gene have a much higher risk for heart disease, stroke and dementia due to high levels of homocysteine in their blood.
MTHFR is an enzyme responsible for the proper metabolism of the harmful amino acid homocysteine into the benign amino acid methionine. This metabolic process also needs folate and B vitamins to function properly. In people who carry the dangerous version of this gene, the enzyme does not work efficiently and higher than normal amounts of folate and vitamin B12 and B6 are used up in the process.
Consequently, these individuals tend to develop cardiovascular disease since homocysteine acts like an abrasive to our blood vessels causing damage to the vascular wall when levels are chronically elevated (above 13umol/L).
Testing for mutations in the MTHFR gene is useful in identifying a cause for persistent hyperhomocysteinemia. This test can be drawn in our office, by appointment, any day before NOON.
