Laboratory Testing is a vital aspect of our services. We are proud to offer state of the art, FDA approved labs that test for a variety of conditions not typically tested for in a traditional medical offices.
What we test for?
Dr. Cushing treats his patients as individuals, so as a rule he does not suggest the same laboratory testing for all. However, with this in mind, when clinically necessary we offer laboratory testing for:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Autoimmune syndromes
- Candida and Yeast
- Heavy Metals
- Minerals Imbalances
- Bone density
- Intestinal permeability (aka Leaky Gut)
How do we test?
We utilize the following for our testing:
- urine testing
The test kit is paid for in office and taken home to complete, on your own schedule, and in the privacy of your own home. When complete the patient simply mails the test to the lab with a prepaid label. When the testing is complete the lab notifies our office for review.
Blood testing is done by prescription, you may use any lab to have blood drawn. Additionally we often review your previous medical testing, including MRI reports, Scans and X-rays. This offers a holistic view of your medical history. These laboratory tests may be faxed or emailed before your appointment, or brought in with you on the day of your appointment.
Blood Chemistry Testing
Holistic medicine considers that what is in “normal” range for one patient is not necessarily in range for another. Clearly, traditional western MD’s are not taught, and don’t have time, to look for the cause of your symptoms. By treating only the symptom picture, and utilizing medications that may make your symptoms worse or adding unwanted side-effects, traditional western medicine fails some patients. It should be noted that Dr. Cushing often recommends blood testing for his patient that may appear, “outside of the medical box” to get to the cause of your illness.
Finally, after you have been to your M.D. and completed their narrowly focused tests, and are told everything is in range and “normal,” yet your symptoms persist. Please, ask yourself why?
