food sensitivity & allergy  •  microbiome balance  •  adrenal health   •  micronutrients status

At Healthy Nest, we use the most innovative, reliable and detailed testing methods to get to the bottom of your issues. We believe testing is not a one-size-fits-all solution and we will recommend specific tests based on your individual issues.

food sensitivity & allergy testing

We employ state-of-the-art food intolerance testing methods as well as the ‘gold-standard’ elimination diet to detect food intolerance and allergens. Once we have conclusive information, it is important to eliminate the irritant, dampen the inflammation, and repair the digestive tract.

We use a combination of therapies to accomplish those goals. They include foods, vitamins, minerals and some soothing western herbal support.

It is our hope that after elimination and healing, (and after time) your body will be able to handle some of the offending foods on a rotating basis.

microbiome balance

Gastrointestinal issues are among the most common reasons that clients seek testing through Healthy Nest Nutrition. Symptoms associated with GI disorders include persistent diarrhea, constipation, bloating, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome and malabsorption.

We work with trusted lab partners to assess your microbiome — your “good” and “bad” gut bacteria — and determine how we can get it into a healthy balance via diet changes and targeted supplementation.

adrenal health

Often, clients have unexplained weight gain, and/or ongoing fatigue and/or sleep interruption. In these cases, we administer a saliva cortisol test that illuminates any underlying hormonal depletion. If this is indeed the problem, our solution will include giving the body basic food-based, nutrient building blocks so your body can make more hormones and you can recover good energy.

micronutrient status

If you suffer from constant fatigue or chronic health issues, we may recommend a micronutrient test. This detailed test measure the function of dozens of nutritional components such as vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within your white blood cells. We can see if you are deficient in any area and put together a diet and supplement plan to address the issue.

Cell Science Systems developed the ALCAT test to measure personalized nutrition at the cellular level. The core technology is a blood test that measures the body’s cellular response to challenges from a wide array of substances including foods, food additives & colorings, molds, environmental chemicals, medicinal foods, and herbs. The ALCAT test is not a type 1 histamic ‘allergy’ or IgE test. The Alcat is the most effective and comprehensive sensitivity/intolerance test we have found. Healthy Nest Nutrition uses this test with confidence.

SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Test measures how micronutrients and antioxidants are actually functioning within the white blood cells over the last 4-8 months.  This test reflects total metabolic and intracellular function of the micronutrients, and gives Healthy Nest’s holistic nutritionists the ability to tailor food and supplementation suggestions to each client’s specific requirements rather than to ‘norms.’
