Clinic Testing Options

At CoreGood we have three criteria for the benefits of doing a test and why we would recommend it:

  1. Is it accurate, reliable and scientifically validated?
  2. Can you to take action to improve the measure?
  3. If you improve the measure, will this improve your health?

OMEGA-3 INDEX REPORT

This simple, validated test measures what percentage of the red blood cell wall is made of omega-3 essential fatty acid (EPA and DHA).   People with an Omega-3 Index in the range of 8%-12% is an indicator of better health. This is based on studies reporting that people with a higher Omega-3 Index are at decreased risk of heart disease, loss of cognitive function, bipolar disorder, ADHD, depression and age-related macular degeneration. Importantly, people with higher levels live longer than those with lower levels. This index enables us to personalise supplemental and diet prescriptions.

DUTCH TEST

WOMEN – Many women suffer from hormonal imbalances. Whether it is menopause, weight gain, fatigue, low libido, premenstrual symptoms (PMS), mood swings, or depression, these symptoms can lead to more serious problems if misdiagnosed. Identifying the root cause of chronic health issues is certainly correctable, but only if properly identified. The DUTCH test provides insight into many of these concerns, working to deliver the most complete assessment of sex and adrenal hormones, along with their metabolites, in one easy to administer test. The DUTCH test enables us to track and evaluate hormone levels, ensuring they are at their optimum balance.

MEN – Over time, men experience a gradual loss of their hormones that are produced in the gonads and adrenal glands. Testosterone and DHEA levels fall and estrogen levels tend to rise. Male menopause, or andropause, can create symptoms of weight gain, lower sex drive, depression, hair loss, sleeping troubles, fatigue, and increased prostate cancer risk. Many men feel like this is part of getting older and do not think there is treatment to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle. The DUTCH test enables us to track and evaluate hormone levels, ensuring they are at their optimum balance.

COMPLETE GUT MICROBIOME DNA SEQUENCING

Provides insight to those who are experiencing ongoing gut-related health concerns such as constipation, bloating and irritable bowel. Going beyond which microbes are in the gut, what they are capable of doing is more important. Through comprehensive analysis of the genes in each and every microbe, we can understand the functional capacity of the microbiome to contribute to the health of your gut and its motility, your metabolism, your brain and nervous system, your immunity, your inflammatory balance and ability to detoxify.  Different microbes use different prebiotic fuel, this test also gives insight into which dietary recommendations would help promote the growth and function of beneficial species that are detected at below optimal levels.
