At Revivelife we recommend that you undergo yearly integrative health testing as a part of a general wellness and longevity program. The testing includes a more in-depth assessment of your health. It includes additional biomarkers that are not included in your traditional medical doctor’s lab tests. Conventional blood testing that addresses “normal reference ranges” vs “optimal reference ranges” may not highlight subtle health concerns.1-3

Optimal health is about investing in you every day with good nutrition, living a lifestyle that promotes self-care and preventive lab testing.  Taking charge of your wellness plan is crucial for anyone in pursuit of a long and healthy life. Basic blood testing that is included under government health plans (OHIP) and performed at your routine traditional medical checkups may miss many test results that are not optimal or key biomarkers that are linked to your health symptoms and concerns.

Integrative assessment is also key to defining a wellness plan. Most often lifestyle disease doesn’t happen overnight but is linked to slow and steady changes that we can measure and monitor with in-depth lab testing.  Addressing what are optimal ranges for you is vital to longevity medicine.

All aspects of your health may be associated with general health imbalances.

The symptoms and conditions associated with general health imbalances may include:

  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Brain Health: brain fog, poor memory, weak concentration
  • Fatigue
  • Hormone Imbalance: mood changes, PMS, PCOS, perimenopause/menopause, andropause, thinning or brittle hair, excess sweating, body temperature changes, water retention, change in appetite, infertility, low libido
  • Immune Weakness: allergies, asthma, hives, infections, colds, flus, bronchitis, pneumonia
  • Lifestyle Diseases: cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes
  • Mood: anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia
  • Pain: headaches, migraines, joint pain, muscular stiffness and pain
  • Skin Concerns: acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea
  • Weight Concerns

There are many risks to general health imbalances. The most common include:

  • Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy
  • Disease
  • Genetics
  • Infections
  • Medications
  • Medications
  • Nutrient Deficiencies
  • Overweight
  • Poor Lifestyle: nutrition, lack of sleep, stress, poor fitness
  • Toxins (pollutants, and endocrine-disrupting chemicals, including pesticides and herbicides.

Your Naturopath or Nurse Practitioner will help assess which test is right for you, including an analysis of the most cost-efficient path of testing. We recommend a New Patient Visit with one of our Naturopathic Doctors for the most comprehensive approach to your health or a Pre-Lab Visit for a quick snapshot prior to lab testing as there are many tests available.  Lab testing alone is a one-dimensional picture of your health. The expertise of a health professional is required to create a three-dimensional picture for proper selection, and interpretation of lab testing. To complete your care we recommend booking your Post-Lab consult 2 weeks after testing to review your results and receive your tailored health plan.

Your medical doctor focuses on tests covered under OHIP. The tests offered here include advanced markers and testing methods that focus on prevention. In addition, the evaluation of these markers is done assessing optimal ranges vs normal ranges. Many health symptoms and conditions are linked to the high and low normal ranges that are reported on your traditional medical doctor’s testing. In addition, an in-depth review of your lifestyle, health, and other aspects of what defines your optimal levels are taken into consideration.1-3 

Third-party insurance companies may cover all or a portion of your consultations. At this time most often they do not cover this testing with the exception of the metabolic urine test (MUT) which is considered an in-office test that they sometimes cover. Please check with your individual provider for details and how to submit claims.

Your Revivelife clinician will review all findings and create a tailored plan for you based on what are the root causes of your health dysfunction. The use of tailored nutrients, herbals, supplements, stress management, acupuncture, and or lifestyle coaching that promote healing is often advised.

We recommend a New Patient Visit for the most comprehensive approach to your health or a Pre-Lab Visit for a quick snapshot before lab testing and a Post-Lab consult to review your results and receive your tailored health plan. To book an appointment, please click here.
