The Integrative Health Centre provides the following testing procedures:
Live Blood Cell Analysis
Salivary Hormone Testing
Urinalysis is used to evaluate properties such as acidity, concentration (a measure of how dehydrated an individual may be), and the presence of sugars, blood, or protein in the urine. These properties may indicate irregularities and disturbances in the urinary system. Specialized urinalysis is used to further evaluate chemical imbalances and stressors within the body.

Your blood carries the life force of your body and it is the river of life pulsing nutrients to the cells and carrying away waste products to be dealt with by the liver and eliminated. Live blood cell analysis is carried out by placing a drop of blood from the client's fingertip on a microscope slide under a glass cover slip to keep it from drying out. The slide is then viewed at high magnification with a dark-field microscope that forwards the image to television monitor. Both practitioner and client can then see the blood cells, which appear as dark bodies outlined in white. The results are then used as a basis for prescribing supplements. Most of its users are chiropractors, naturopaths, and nutrition consultants. Learn more Here.

Imbalances of these hormones may result in menopausal symptoms, decreased ability to adapt to stress, temperature and metabolism imbalances, cancer development and cardiovascular degeneration and inability to lose weight.
