Holistic Pain Solutions offers laboratory testing panels that evaluate levels of neurotransmitters, hormones, and minerals present in the hair.
Neurotransmitter testing is conducted by Neurogistics Corporation in Austin, TX. These tests evaluate brain wellness by discovering the amounts and ratios of important messenger molecules in the brain. Patients purchase a home test kit from Holistic Pain Solutions and send the completed test to Neurogistics along with a processing fee. The patient then schedules a follow-up consultation with Integrative Oriental Medicine to discuss test results and go over recommended supplementation and lifestyle changes. These tests are appropriate for children and adults experiencing stress, brain fog, anxiety, panic, moodiness, depression, attention problems, autistic spectrum disorders, memory loss, sleep problems, PTSD, and migraines.
Hormone testing is conducted by Diagnos-Techs in Kent, WA. These tests evaluate the levels and ratios of hormones in the saliva and urine. Panels can be ordered to evaluate adrenal health, female hormones, and male hormones. Patients purchase a home test kit from Integrative Oriental Medicine and send the completed test to Diagnos-Techs along with a processing fee. The patient then schedules a follow-up consultation with Holistic Pain Solutions to discuss test results and go over recommended supplementation and lifestyle changes. These tests are appropriate for patients experiencing stress/panic, weight gain/loss, hair loss, skin changes/acne, moodiness, menstrual cycle irregularities, low libido, vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, changes in appetite, restlessness, palpitations, fatigue, and feeling of inner trembling.
Hair mineral analysis is conducted by Analytical Research Labs (ARL) in Phoenix, AZ. This test involves cutting a small portion of hair at the nape of the neck, which is then sent to ARL. The hair is evaluated for mineral content and ratios which provide information about the patient's metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, immune system, autonomic balance, glandular activity and metabolic trends. The patient pays $150 to Holistic Pain Solutions for this test, which includes the laboratory processing fee. Follow-up consultation is recommended to discuss test results and go over supplementation and lifestyle changes. Hair analysis is appropriate for all patients and all conditions, but can provide pointed information about the causes of chronic fatigue, anxiety, poor digestion, and effects of potential toxic exposures.
