24-Hour Integrative Urinalysis
The findings of a 24-hour integrative urinalysis exam provide for a clearer picture of your digestive system as well as the ability to monitor several key minerals needed for proper health and wellbeing. We use this preventive screening tool on nearly all of our patients to recognize the early onset of dysfunction involving multiple organ systems in the body. Appropriate urinalysis testing is like performing an audit of the body. This provides us with biochemical evidence of which food(s) your body is having difficulty digesting and/or assimilating: whether it is fats, proteins, carbs, or a combination of all three. While many in healthcare focus on blood-work for their diagnostic needs, I have found that urine is the perfect tool to show what the body can't afford to let go of or has too much of and needs to get rid of. The test results act like a blue-print of sorts that allow for quick recognition of areas our patients need to pay closer attention to in their quest for improved health.
There is an unmistakable connection between the importance of proper digestion and the presence of many recurring and nagging health complaints such as allergies, migraine headaches, sugar cravings, mood swings, and digestive disorders that occur from the digestive system and mineral imbalances. By analyzing the results, your urine can be used as a preventive health screening tool that will allow one to readily modify their diet and lifestyle according to their body's needs. And the best part? It's relatively inexpensive and you never have to study for this exam. :)
In some cases, additional lab findings may be required. We have the ability to order lab work from several labs located just minutes from our office. This allows for fast, high-quality service to our customers.
