We work with our onsite, sister facility Ballen Medical and Wellness for specialty lab testing. They utilize multiple types of labs to help develop a program for each patient, that includes those coming for depression, anxiety, fatigue, pain, chronic disease, cancer, etc…. We pride ourselves in not only treating the symptoms of the disease but finding the root cause of many of these issues. Most of these lab tests are done by getting blood taken in our clinic. We then send the specimen off to the most accurate lab facilities in the world. We have researched and studied multiple labs to make sure every one of our lab facilities uses the highest standards.
Along with the best most accurate results, you have the convenience of having your providers, treatment, and testing done all in one building. This lets the entire team be part of every piece of the puzzle, which will create a cohesive plan of care We can analyze multiple forms of lab data to create a personalized plan for your wellness and treatment goals. Our skilled nurses will draw the blood within the facility, and we have a free functional assessment to help create a plan that will match your wellness goals.
This is a blood draw done in our office and sent out to help those struggling with medication management in depression and anxiety. This lab tests for a curated panel of 24 genes used to inform treatment for many psychiatric conditions. The information provided by this report is designed to help clinicians make more informed treatment decisions, and to help avoid the painful process of trial and error. This helps our psychiatry team develop a personal plan to help complex medication management. This can also help determine a medication plan for those considering our ketamine infusion treatments for depression/anxiety.
We utilize multiple types of labs to research patients’ optimal nutritional needs and nutritional intolerances. We can run a complete food sensitivity panel or individualize it to certain foods. This can help determine if particular foods may be causing anxiety, depression, lethargy, and many other chronic symptoms. With these food sensitivity results, we create a supplement and infusion plan to help patients reach their optimal wellness goals. This can be tailored to those looking for sports optimization, weight loss, and overall wellness. These tests help guide care in those with gluten intolerance, absorption issues, autoimmune disease, depression, anxiety, MTHFR mutation, IBS, and many others.
Lyme Disease Testing
We currently have multiple types of tests that determine if the lingering effects of chronic Lyme are causing lethargy, brain fog, pain, anxiety, and many other symptoms. After testing, we can offer a personalized treatment plan that will combat Lyme disease, this can include Ozone Therapy, NAD, and vitamin infusions. This plan will focus on detoxifying your body of Lyme while utilizing lifestyle changes, infusions, supplements, and nutrition. We can guide you through treatment, and retest for lab markers to ensure that you are becoming Lyme free.
We utilize G6PD test to determine if a patient is a candidate for high dose vitamin C infusions, this is the gold standard lab for determining the safety of doing high dose vitamin C infusions. We use high dose vitamin C to help patients with many disease processes such as cancer, autoimmune disease, and immunity support. The G6PD lab is necessary for anyone receiving more than 10g of Vitamin C in an infusion. Our High Dose Vitamin C infusions range from 15g to 100g of Vitamin C in one sitting, this lab is necessary to keep you safe while getting High Dose Vitamin C infusions.
We can do the blood test to help determine if you are one of the many with MTHFR gene mutation, this helps us determine if you need a specialized program to increase your health-related deficiency in Vitamin B and folate absorption. We will suggest treatments, supplements, and diet to help you feel your best. MTHFR is so common, with this simple test, you can learn the best ways to combat the symptoms.
We are able to do all basic labs such as Basic Blood Count (CBC), Complete Metabolic Panel (CMP), Liver function panel, Vitamin D levels, etc… We can use the labs to help guide your care in overall wellness. Many times, depression and anxiety are related to nutritional and vitamin deficiencies. For those suffering from depression and anxiety and utilizing our ketamine infusion program, we believe that looking into key laboratory data may help you achieve results faster.
We use many of our basic labs to guide those through our NAD addiction plan. We will monitor your liver function, hydration, and electrolytes to safely guide patients through our addiction recovery program. Laboratory data helps us optimize patients’ treatment plans while battling chronic disease, cancer, environmental toxin exposure, and addiction recovery.
We can run a BioTE hormone panel that will help us determine if your hormones are causing a decline in wellness. This panel will test estrogen, testosterone, thyroid, and other basic labs. If a hormone imbalance exists, we can help patients balance their system by utilizing appropriate treatments. Many of us suffer from low libido, fatigue, soreness, overall lack of motivation. After doing our hormone panel, we can determine if our Biosynthetic hormone replacement BioTE is right for you. BioTe is more effective and has fewer side effects than other hormone replacement options. We will make sure hormone replacement is safe for the patient, walk them through hormone replacement options and explain what to expect when thinking about hormone replacement.
We can do multiple lab studies to determine if you are in an adrenal crisis from chronic stress. Stress is relentless in today’s society, and many times our lab data shows this. These tests can guide us in a step by step guide to reduce your stress response. When our body is stressed, we experience a spike in cortisol, and our health declines. This leads to weight gain, lethargy, anxiety, and an overall decrease in health. We can tailor a plan that includes lifestyle changes, supplement choice, many of our infusions such as NAD, Immune Booster, and Myers to help combat the health crisis of chronic stress.
Heavy Metal Toxicity
We can utilize our heavy metal lab testing to guide patients who have had exposure and side effects of heavy metal exposure. This test will determine if our Chelation infusion therapy is appropriate. We can utilize the chelation treatments to rid those who test positive for heavy metal toxicity.
COVID-19 Antibody Testing
We are currently doing COVID-19 antibody testing, it is a four-antibody test that results in three days. This test is 200$ and can be drawn in the clinic.
Here is the information from the lab.
Vibrant Antibody Panel – 4 Viral Antigens and 3 Antibody classes – IgM, IgA and IgG
While the value of antibody tests has been proven with a majority of testing available being able to detect antibodies to a single antigen such as nucleoprotein – the Vibrant Ab Panel is the only one to measure antibody levels against all 4 key antigens of the SARS-CoV-2 as listed below. It is also important to note we will report separately on 3 antibody subclasses – IgM, IgA and IgG– which can shed light on the broad immune response of the individual. Important highlights to note in our testing are below.
Testing for a single antigen will limit the assay sensitivity as we can see from the individual sensitivities and specificities of antigens listed in our validation document.
It is important to note that studies at Vibrant have been performed using swab positive and negative in the US population and do not rely on external studies.
The antigens were manufactured using the reference genome of SARS-CoV2 that was published and are hence specific to the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV2. Preliminary studies have shown differentiation from antibodies to other coronaviruses, however much larger studies are required to ascertain this which is why the FDA mandates a disclaimer in all antibody tests at this point on potential cross-reactivity.
Testing affected individuals at least twice may help display immune system modulation and also differentiate if the infection is recent vs past.
Vibrant uses chemiluminescence-based detection for all antibody subclasses in addition to a procedure called IgG stripping during detection of IgM, which enhances the sensitivity of our assay.
