Your Online Test Results are below, but please note these results are not to be substituted for actual laboratory testing and analysis from a trained doctor. However these tests results can help us understand what systems of your body are not working properly or are dysfunctional. The higher the percentage the better, for example getting a 100% on a test is an A+.

The scoring key is:

90-100% is indicative of no to slight dysfunction.
80-89% is indicative of mild dysfunction.
70-79% is indicative of moderate dysfunction.
0-69% is indicative of severe dysfunction.

Approximately 90% of the total serotonin is made and located in the digestive system, where it is used to regulate intestinal movements. It is also more commonly known as a neurotransmitter in the brain that helps regulate mood, appetite, and sleep. Serotonin also has some cognitive functions, including memory and learning.

Is a neurotransmitter in the nervous system which plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior. Most types of reward increase the level of dopamine in the brain, and most addictive drugs increase dopamine neuronal activity. Dopamine is also involved in motor control and in controlling the release of various other hormones. Low levels of dopamine have been connected with feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, troubles staying focused, lack of pleasure and reduced dreaming when sleeping.

Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, nauseausness, restless leg syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder all have been associated with dopamine function.

Is a neurotransmitter of the nervous system released by nerve cells to send signals to other cells. It is the chemical that motor neurons of the nervous system release in order to activate muscles. Acetylcholine has been associated with lapses in memory, difficulty comprehending verbal instructions, difficulty initiating movements, in arousal, attention, and motivation.

Gaba is the chief down regulator in central nervous system. It plays the critical role in reducing excitability throughout the nervous system. Low levels of Gaba have been associated with feelings of tensions and troubles turning thoughts off when trying to relax, feelings of irritability, short tempered, and often times people will use alcohol or other sedatives to calm down.

The adrenal glands are small glands located on top of each kidney. They produce hormones that you can’t live without, including sex hormones and cortisol. Cortisol helps you respond to stress and has many other important functions. The adrenal glands also produce a variety of hormones including androgens, adrenaline, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and aldosterone.

Each adrenal gland is composed of two distinct parts: the outer part called the adrenal cortex and the inner adrenal medulla. The adrenal glands secrete different hormones which act as ‘chemical messengers’. These hormones travel in the bloodstream and act on various body tissues to enable them to function correctly.

The adrenal cortex produces three hormones:

Mineralocorticoids: the most important of which is aldosterone. This hormone helps to maintain the body’s salt and water levels which, in turn, regulates blood pressure. Without aldosterone, the kidney loses excessive amounts of salt (sodium) and, consequently, water, leading to severe dehydration.

Glucocorticoids: predominantly cortisol. This hormone is involved in the stress response and also helps to regulate body metabolism. Cortisol stimulates glucose production by mobilizing amino acids and free fatty acids. Cortisol also has significant anti-inflammatory effects.

Adrenal androgens: Sex hormones mainly dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and testosterone.

The adrenal medulla portion of the adrenals produces catecholamines:

Catecholamines include adrenaline, noradrenaline and small amounts of dopamine – these hormones are responsible for all the physiological characteristics of the stress response, the so called ‘fight or flight’ response.

Adrenal stress can result in thinning and bruising of the skin, obesity, diabetes, psychiatric disturbances, high blood pressure, muscle weakness, osteoporosis, excessive facial hair and irregular periods in women. Excess cortisol can also be related to impaired wound healing and an increased susceptibility to infection.

After long periods of stress, the adrenals can become fatigued and can result in low blood pressure, fatigue, weight loss, anorexia, nausea, chronic pain syndromes, salt craving and low blood sugar.

The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck. It makes thyroid hormone, which is carried throughout your body in the bloodstream and affects every cell, tissue, organ, gland and hormones in the human body. So needless to say, a thyroid problem results in an entire body problem. Thyroid hormone controls metabolic activities, including how fast someone burns calories and heart rate.

Common symptoms of low thyroid function are, weight gain despite healthy diet and exercise, being tired, poor sleep, depression, mood swings, brain fog, and lack of motivation. Other common symptoms are poor digestion or constipation, sinus or allergy problems, heavy menstrual periods, headaches/migraines, low body temperature, decreased libido, heart palpitations, blood sugar spikes, aches/pains, and even thinning hair, dry skin and brittle nails.

In men a very common finding is low testosterone. Testosterone is mostly secreted from the gonads and affects muscle mass, sex drive, stamina, and recovery.

Low levels of testosterone have been connected to erectile dysfunction, decreased muscle mass, troubles with concentration and memory, decrease since of wellbeing and depression.

Estrogen and Progesterone are the primary sex hormones of women. When these hormones get out of balance women experience, anxiousness, irritability, aggressiveness or hostility. Symptoms also include breast tenderness, being easily overwhelmed, sad, abnormally heavy or scanty flow, pain with menses, periods occur irregularor even absent in some cases.

High estrogen levels have been linked with fibroids, endometresosis, and ovarian cysts.

Imbalances in estrogen/progesterone levels can result in infertility, painful intercourse, increased in body or facial hair, low libido and hot flashes.

The stomach is involved in the second phase of digestion, following mastication (chewing).

The stomach secretes protein-digesting enzymes called proteases and gastric acid to aid in food digestion, through smooth muscular contractions before sending partially digested food (chyme) to the small intestines. When the stomach is not functioning properly it can lead to indigestion, heart burn, nutritional deficiencies and various other issues with any of the other gastrointestinal tract that are following this second step of digestion.

The gastrointestinal system refers to the stomach and the intestines. So with inflammation in the gastrointestinal system can lead to a sense of nauseausness, stomach pain, indigestion up to 90 minutes after eating and muscle twitching can be associated.

The small intestine is the part of the gastrointestinal tract between the stomach and the large intestine, and is where much of the digestion and absorption of food takes place. The primary function of the small intestine is the absorption of nutrients and minerals from food.

Many of the digestive enzymes that act in the small intestine are secreted by the pancreas and enter the small intestine via the pancreatic duct. Pancreatic enzymes and bile from the gallbladder enter the small intestine. With dysfunction in the small intestines or pancreatic enzymes can result in pain under the rib cage on the left side, delayed indigestion occurring 2-4 hours after eating a meal, change in the consistency or form of the stool, excessive odor with bowel movements, undigested food in the bowel movements, and diarrhea or frequently loose stools.

The large intestineis the last part of the digestive system. Water is absorbed here and the remaining waste material is stored as feces before being removed by defecation.

Unlike the small intestine, the colon does not play a major role in absorption of foods and nutrients. Abnormalities in the large intestines can result in discomfort, pain or cramps in the lower abdominal area, eating raw fruits and vegetables causes gas, bloating, and pain in lower abdomen, and constipation.

The gallbladder is an organ that sits just beneath the the liver.The main purpose of the gallbladder is to store bileneeded for the digestion of food. The gallbladder serves as a reservoir for bile, which is produced by the liver. The liver produces the bile and then it flows through the hepatic ducts into the gallbladder.

When food containing fat enters the digestive tract, it stimulates the gallbladder to rhythmically contract and releaseits contents into the common bile duct, eventually draining into the small intestines. The bile emulsifies fats in partly digested food, thereby assisting their absorption.

When the gallbladder becomes dysfunctional it can lead to bowel movements that alternate from normal to clay colored, result in sporadic pains in the middle of the upper abdomen, or just below the ribs on the right side, gallstone attacks, and even removal of the gallbladder.

Nutritional Deficiencies occur for because of various dysfunctions in the gastrointestinal system. Nutritional deficiencies can lead to muscle cramping, ridges on nails, gingivitis, gums that bleed, cracking/peeling/brittle/splitting fingernails or fingertips (i.e. hang nails), small bumps on back of upper arms and/or thighs, fatigue and even depression.
The majority of the immune system (80%)is located in your digestive system. When there is damage in the digestive system their is damage or insult to the immune system resulting in condition like eczema, psoriasis, lupus and other autoimmune diseases. Impaired immune function can also lead to recurring infections, sinus and allergies, frequent illness and elevated inflammation.
The detoxification system is actually a complex network involving the lymphatic system, respiratory system, digestive system and urinary system. However the brunt of detoxification is handled by one organ the liver. The liver’s main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. The liver also makes proteins that are essential for the body to function properly. The liver also makes 75% of the bodies cholesterol. Cholesterol is the processor to every hormone made in the human body. When the detoxification system and liver get overloaded the signs and symptoms can be elevated cholesterol, acne, liver spots, migraines, frequent headaches, bitter or metallic taste, difficulty recalling words, poor memory, ADHD, insomnia, strong body odor, dark circles under the eyes or a yellowish ting of the whites of the eyes.
