TESTING & COUNSELING

TESTING IS KEY FOR ACHIEVING POSITIVE OUTCOMES
At Innovative Pharmacy, accurate testing is key for achieving positive outcomes for our patients. Convenient, easy-to-use saliva, blood spot, and neurotransmitter test kits are available which allows for collection at your convenience and in the privacy of your own home. We offer a variety of kits including ZRT saliva, blood spot, and saliva/blood spot combo kits and NeuroScience saliva, neurotransmitter, and saliva/neurotransmitter combo kits.

Our saliva test kits allow you to test Estrogens, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEAS, and the adrenal hormone, Cortisol, four times throughout the day. We recommend saliva testing for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) sex hormones and adrenals; however testing of sex hormones are not recommended if you are currently on birth control pills.

Our blood spot tests allow for testing of Thyroid, such as Free T3, Free T4, TSH, and TPO. Vitamin D, insulin, IGF-1, and many other levels may also be tested with blood spot testing. Additionally, we recommend blood spot tests for any hormones that you are using sublingually.
Neurotransmitters help receptors in the brain to influence and regulate several processes in the body, including mental acuity, emotions, pain response, and energy levels. Studies have shown that inadequate neurotransmitter function can have a tremendous impact on health and well-being.

Some conditions associated with neurotransmitters are:
– Depression
– Anxiety
– Mood disorders
– Lack of mental clarity
– ADD
– ADHD
– Addiction and substance abuse
– Hormone imbalances for Men and Women
– E2 dominance and deficiency
– Lack of appetite control
– Resistance to insulin
