Laboratory Tests

The following lab evaluations are not yet routinely used in standard (conventional) medicine. Therefore, they will probably not be ordered by your conventional physician. (It is against the law for physicians to order any test that is not a “standard” conventional test). If your local physician will not order these tests, you may still order them directly from The Wellness Club.

We do not bill or participate in insurance or Medicare. If you plan to submit to your insurance or Medicare, please have your local physician submit a completed claim form including UPIN number, name, address, phone number, prescription and diagnosis code.

All lab fees must be paid in advance. A specimen collection kit, instructions and mailer will be sent to you for each test at the time of your order. A copy of test results will be mailed to you. Wellness Club Members enjoy a 10% discount on all products and medical tests. Join the Wellness Club today and save on your medical testing.

Important Ordering Information: Tests marked (sorry – not available in New York state) ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK. These are not our rules – but the rules of the state of New York. The lab will not process any test that was collected in the state of New York or that has a New York address on the lab form!

NOTE: Interpretation of laboratory data is best done in conjunction with a physician. We therefore recommend that you Consult with Dr. Myatt or your local physician for evaluation of lab results. Keep in mind that conventionally-trained physicians may not be familiar with the use and interpretation of these tests.

Vitamin D Test


This test uses saliva samples to evaluate the “stress hormones” that are also associated with accelerated aging. The panel evaluates cortisol ( X 4), DHEA and DHEA-S, Total secretory IgA, Gluten Antibody, insulin (x 2) and 17-OH Progesterone.

This test is indicated for suspected adrenal fatigue, overweight and as part of an anti-aging program.

Urine and saliva specimens measures rate of bone mineral loss and associated hormones by looking at a breakdown product of bone (DpD). This test also includes hormones DHEA and DHEA-S, estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol (x 2) and FSH (follicular stimulating hormones).

This is an excellent test for monitoring osteoporosis treatment and prevention in both men and women. It gives faster “feedback” about the efficacy of treatment than waiting a year to verify treatment by using a bone density scan. Collect samples in the privacy of home and mail in with a pre-paid mailer.

Low-level overgrowth of Candida yeast species can cause a wide variety of health problems, but yeast may not be found in a stool specimen. This is because the yeast may have invaded elsewhere in the body, such as in the urinary tract, sinus passages, vagina or elsewhere.

This test uses a drop of blood to evaluate for an immune system reaction to Candida. It assesses IgG, IgA, IgM immunoglobulins to yeast as well as Candida antigen. A positive finding indicates past or present Candida infection and may allow Candida yeast reactions to be found when stool and vaginal specimens are negative or inconclusive.

Celiac Antibody Panel

Celiac disease (CD), also known as gluten-sensitive enteropathy or idiopathic sprue, is an hereditary response to gliadin, a protein fraction in wheat. Gluten sensitivity is a non-hereditary response to gluten and shares some similarity of symptoms with celiac disease. Anyone with IBS, chronic diarrhea, gas or other digestive abnormalities of unknown cause should be evaluated for gluten allergy/sensitivity since the condition is far more common than previously thought.

The Celiac Antibody Panel uses drops of blood obtained from finger-stick and the specimen is collected at home and mailed directly to the lab. The test evaluates anti-tissue transglutaminase IgA and immunoglobulins IgG and IgA specific for gliadin. It is considered highly accurate for diagnosing celiac disease and shows gluten sensitivity approximately 50% of the time.

Celiac / Gluten-Gliaden Sensitivity Panel – $175


The CompPlus is one of the most complete, accurate and advanced hormone profiles for both men and women. This test is the “Gold Standard” for balancing male and female sex hormones, adrenal and thyroid hormones. It also includes the 2/16α EQ (estrogen quotient) ratio, an important and modifiable predictor of hormone-related cancer risk.

Why is 24-hour urine testing the “Gold Standard” of hormone evaluation? Sex hormones are released in “pulsed doses” throughout the 24-hour period. Single blood tests can be high or low depending on where in this cycle they occur. They are the least accurate of hormone tests. Saliva is the next best, because saliva represents some degree of “averaging” of the total sex hormones. However, various physical conditions can alter the concentration of hormones in saliva and decrease the accuracy of the test. 24-hour urine testing collects the “peaks and valleys” of hormone release and averages it. This gives an extremely accurate profile of the daily amount of hormones release.

This test also looks at adrenal hormones (which factor into sex hormone production because the adrenals make sex hormones) and the estrogen quotient, a potent risk factor (that can be modified) for hormone-related cancers.

Using a 24-hour urine specimen, the CompPlus evaluates the following:
Estrogens – estrone, estradiol, estriol, 2-hydroxyestrone, 16α-hydroxyestrone, 4-hydroxyestrone, 2-methoxyestrone, 2-methoxyestradiol,
Progesterone – pregnanediol (progesterone metabolite),
Androgens – DHEA, testosterone,
5α -androstanediol, 5β-androstanediol, androsterone, eticholanolone, cortisone, cortisol,
(adrenal hormones) pregnanetriol, tetrahydrocortisone, allo-tetrahydrocortisol, tetraqhydrocortisol, 11β-hydroxyandrosterone, 11β-hydroxyetiocholanolone,
Mineralocorticoids (adrenal hormones) aldosterone, allo-tetrahydrocorticosterone, tetrahydrocorticosterone, 11-dehydrotetrahydrocorticosterone,
Thyroid hormones – free T3, free T4
– 2/16α estrogen quotient (EQ) ratio

One of the most important tests for anti-aging, longevity and cancer prevention protocols. Also the best test for female menopause / male andropause – related symptoms.

CompPLUS HORMONE PROFILE with 2/16 EQ $429.00

NEW! CompPLUS HORMONE PROFILE with 2/16 EQand HGH $499.00

The ultimate anti-aging / longevity hormone profile. Same as the CompPlus (above) with Human Growth Hormone (HGH) added.


This panel uses multiple urine samples to measure estriol, estrone, estradiol, progesterone, DHEA, DHEA-S and testosterone in post-menopausal females. See an example of the test results here. The samples are collected on test-strips, a very simple and easy collection method.

I do not use blood tests to measure hormones because they are not particularly accurate. Sex hormones are released in “pulses” over a 24 hour period but a blood test only takes a “snapshot” of what is happening at the moment the blood is drawn. By taking multiple specimens over the course of a day, including the highs and lows, a more accurate picture is obtained.

This panel uses saliva samples to measure free estradiol, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone, FHS and LH in pre-menopausal females, following hormone levels throughout the monthly cycle. The test requires 11 saliva samples taken over one complete female cycle.

Dr. Myatt’s comment: Useful in discovering hormone imbalances related to infertility, PMS, irregular cycles, polycystic ovary disease, endometriosis, fibroids and to determine overall sex hormone levels consistent with peri-menopause.

Uses saliva to test for sensitivities to cow’s milk, eggs, soy and gluten.Collect the saliva speciment at home and send it in to the lab in the pre-paid mailer. Results include salivary IgA antibody’s to these four common food allergens.



Food allergies are a common, undiagnosed cause of many health problems. This test screens for antibodies against 96 different foods commonly found in a typical American diet. (95 foods in the vegetarian panel). The test provides the same clinical results that can be obtained from a local laboratory without the added expense and inconvenience because you collect the blood specimen yourself using a simple finger-stick method.

The kit includes all collection materials and the means to ship the specimen to the lab free of charge. Results are provided within 10-14 days from the time the test was received at the lab. Each patient report comes complete with a customized 4-Day Elimination/Rotation Diet Guideline and an easy-to-read food family booklet.

Due to state regulations, this test is not available to New York and New Jersey residents.

Kit includes easy-to-understand instructions, a symptom check list, explanation of the “low stomach acid” problem, a packet of 10 hydrochloric acid capsules (HCL) and 6 Alka-Aid tablets necessary to perform the test. This kit contains enough HCL to test one person. Order additional packets of HCl if more than one person will be performing the test.


NOTE: Due to the nature of the HCL and Alka Aid packets, this test cannot be returned.

Additional HCL CAPSULES 10 CAP Packet (for self-test) #255 $4.95

Please Note: This test is completed in the comfort and privacy of your own home. This test does not involve the collection of any blood or other samples and does not involve swallowing any testing devices. Full, detailed instructions are included with the test. The knowledge you will obtain from the instructions will allow you to repeat the test as often as you wish.

Comprehensive Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Health Profile with Parasitology

This test uses 3 stool and 2 saliva specimens to evaluate for: yeast/fungus, parasites (C. difficile toxins, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Ameba histolytica, Tapeworm, Roundworm, Toxoplasma, Trichinella), pathogenic bacteria, H. Pylori, Clostridium dificile antigen, digestive function (chymotrypsin), occult blood (hidden GI bleeding), anti-Chymotrypsin (intestine inflammation marker) and lysozyme (colon inflammation marker).

This profile provides a complete assessment of gut function and often identifies problems overlooked by conventional intestinal tests such as barium studies and endoscopy. A useful tool in any chronic GI complaint (IBS, GERD) and in systemic disease (cancer, autoimmune, chronic respiratory infections, etc.).

Immune globulins (IgA) to cow’s milk, soy and egg are also evaluated.

Gluten/Casein Peptides Test

The Gluten/Casein Peptides Test

An inability to completely digest gluten (found in wheat, rye barley and oats) and/or casein found in milk can result in the production of neuropeptides which are chemically similar to morphine.

These peptides, called gliadorphin and casomorphin, can have opiod effects in the body and brain.

This test requires a small amount of first morning urine to evaluate for both gluten and casein peptides.

Gluten/Casein Peptides Test #N365 $129.00

Hair mineral analysis is an accurate, inexpensive test for heavy and toxic metals in the system. It is less reliable for nutritional minerals and the results must be evaluated in context.

Test requires 1 Tablespoon of hair, preferably from nape of neck. A measuring device and instructions are included with the collection kit.


Heavy Metal / Urine Chelation Test.

The most accurate test for heavy metals in the body.

Heavy metals — including mercury, lead, cadmium, iron and arsenic — can be an overlooked cause of high blood pressure, neurological diseases and symptoms, chronic fatigue and other complaints for which there is no clear diagnosis.

Blood tests for heavy metals are virtually useless because the body clears toxic metals from the bloodstream very rapidly and stores them in tissues such as bone and metabolically active tissues where they will cause less damage.

Hair mineral analysis for heavy metals is more accurate than blood testing but is subject to “false negatives.” If one or more metals are found to be high based on a hair mineral analysis, there is definitely a toxic mineral problem. But if the hair test comes back negative, that doesn’t prove that you’re free from heavy metal toxicity. The metal can be stored in other tissues in the body, not the hair.

The best test for the presence of heavy metals is a chelation test. This test uses a “chelating agent” (EDTA, DMSA) to pull metals out of storage sites where they are then eliminated in the urine. Older versions of the test required in-office IV chelation prior to testing.

Fortunately, there is a newer oral chelation challenge / urine test that many holistic physicians feel is just as accurate as IV chelation testing, at a fraction of the cost and inconvenience.

The test entails fasting for several hours, then taking an oral chelating agent called DMSA (Dimercaptosuccinic Acid), a potent chelating agent. The urine is then collected for the next 6 hours and a send a sample of this to the lab in a pre-paid mailer.

This test kit includes DMSA sufficient to complete the test

Heavy Metal / Urine Chelation Test # N267 $279

COMPREHENSIVE IODINE with bromide and flouride

Iodine, an essential trace nutrient, is a common deficiency in the American diet. Learn more about the importance of iodine here.

This test includes a “spot test” which evaluates current levels of iodine in the body, plus a 24-hour loading test which evaluates whole body sufficiency following a dose of 50mg of iodine. This test now includes bromide and flouride, a mineral which can interfere with the absorption of iodine AND give a “false normal” iodine reading.


Liver (Hepatic) Detoxification Profile

The liver processes toxins, drugs and even components of food in a two-step enzymatic process. If either of these “Phase I” or “Phase II” liver enzymes are out of sync, toxins can be rendered more toxic and remain in the body longer.

This simple urine test (a single collection of first-morning urine) shows:

  • The status of phase I and phase II detoxification enzymes
  • Assessment of chemical exposure and impaired liver function

This test is also a reliable marker for exposure to toxic chemicals as seen in the D-glucaric acid levels.

Liver (Hepatic) Detoxification Profile – #N348 – $218


This test uses a saliva sample to measure e DHEA, DHEA-S, testosterone, Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), androstenedione, estrone and progesterone in males.

Dr. Myatt’s comment: Especially valuable for tailoring anti-aging hormone replacement therapy. Men can suffer bone loss, depression, loss of libido and other “menopausal” symptoms due to declining sex hormones.

Please NOTE: this test is best used by men who have NOT been on hormone replacement or suppression therapy, not as a follow-up to therapy. The Comp. Plus Hormone Profile is much more accurate and provides “preventive” information like the androgen ratios and intermediates for prostate cancer prevention and treatment which the saliva test does not. I highly recommend the Comp Plus Profile over the saliva testing. — Dr. Myatt
