Routine testing: These tests are ordered routinely by many physicians to evaluate basic functions within the body. Most of the time those with insurance are covered by these tests and there is typically no out of pocket cost to the patient.

  2. Organ function (Kidney and Liver)
  3. Thyroid function
  4. Electrolytes
  5. Sugar levels
  6. Cardiovascular risk
  7. Blood proteins

  4. Environmental testing (heavy metals, pesticides, toxins)
