Male Salivary Hormones - $325

This test measures cortisol, DHEAS, estradiol, and testosterone in your saliva. It provides valuable information on the interaction between these four major hormones.

This test requires a small sample of your hair (approximately 5 grams).  It tests for levels of 22 toxic heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, arsenic, and lead. It also tests for 23 essential minerals such as calcium, iron, copper, zinc, selenium and magnesium. Knowing the levels of good and bad minerals and heavy metals in your body can help suggest either supplementation or detoxification.


Vitamin D Test - $150

Did you know that Alberta Health is no longer providing Vitamin D test screening as of April 1st, 2015 (click here for more information)?  Because Vitamin D plays such an important role in bone growth, immune system and general mood, it's important to test for it. This test requires a quick prick of your finger to obtain a few drops of blood.  It is then sent for analysis to determine Vitamin D levels in your body.
