This Test is for patients who are suffering from:
A very simple and inexpensive test using blood and urine is carried out to find out whether a patient has Pyroluria. This test is available through some of the more holistic doctors who have been through the specialized training in diagnosing and treating this condition. The test consists of a two parts, urine and blood; the urine is collected by the patient at home and sent over night to a specialized lab, and the blood is taken by a preferred lab and also sent to the specialized lab handling the urine test.
Once diagnosed it can be alleviated using simple nutrients.
Blood Chemistry Testing
Dr. Cushing uses a company to source the most inexpensive blood testing at wholesale rates which cover any type of blood test that a patient would need. Even if patients have their own insurance, we often get these tests done for less than their copays.
Dr. Cushing tests from a functional medicine view-point, where most MD’s test to see if you are out of their pharmaceutical driven ranges. We are all individual and what is in range for one patient is not necessarily in range for another. Most MD’s are not taught to look for the cause of your symptoms, only how to treat the symptom picture with a toxic drug, this can sometimes make your symptoms worse. When Dr. Cushing puts together a blood test for his patient he will test for many things outside of the medical box to get to the causes.
This is why, when you have been to your doctor and completed their narrowly focused blood tests, (that only the insurance carriers will cover you for), and you were told everything is in range and they have assured you there is nothing to worry about. But, you still have symptoms. You have to ask yourself why! You need to consider seeing a functional medicine doctor to investigate this further and from their perspective of being healthy and staying healthy, not from the medical view which is based on pharmaceutical intervention and taking out the offending organ.
