Are you confused about nutrition?

Wondering if you need to take extra vitamin D? CoQ10? Whatever the “it” supplement is? Understand which multivitamins are high quality (or more importantly, which ones aren’t)?

Absolute Wellness Center is happy to take guesswork out of the equation. We offer a clinical, customized and structured nutritional program designed specifically for your needs, whether that be detoxification, weight loss, or daily supportive wellness care. We use several different diagnostic methods to determine your specific nutritional needs, what you may be consuming that isn’t serving you and where your diet may be lacking in crucial vitamins and minerals.

Dr. Susan Doyle has had extensive training in functional medicine and nutritional healing, and she welcomes the opportunity to speak with you about incorporating good nutrition into your holistic health plan.

Tools for Nutritional Healing

After reviewing your medical history and intake, we use an array of different diagnostic methods to figure out your specific nutritional needs.  After going through your history and intake, Dr. Doyle may use one or more of the following tests to get to the root cause of your issues.

Great Plains Laboratory Testing

Great Plains Laboratory Testing is a world leader in providing testing for nutritional factors implicated in chronic illnesses like fibromyalgia, ADHD and autism. They offer a variety of metabolic tests such as immune deficiency evaluations,  amino acid tests, comprehensive fatty acid tests, organic acids testing and metal toxicity. We most frequently use their Organic Acids Test, a urinalysis which identifies the presence of bacteria and yeast and other metabolites which may produce gut dysbiosis and other imbalances. Highly recommended for children or adults with behavioral disorders, chronic fatigue or immune dysfunction.

Genova Laboratory Testing

Out of Asheville, NC, Genova offers a variety of testing options including stool, urine and blood tests that can shed light on a variety of symptoms. We commonly use them to investigate potential allergens (food and environmental), autoimmune issues and gut imbalances. Highly recommended where allergies or autoimmunity is suspected.

Diagnos-techs Laboratory Testing

Hormones are often tested using serum samples.  The problem with this approach is two fold: It is giving us a snapshot in time of what is occurring in the body and it also shows us what hormones are hanging out in the blood, as opposed to what is biologically active and in the tissues.  We use an 11 sample saliva test from Diagnos-Techs to determine what happens with hormones over the course of a month.  The volume of information that we receive from this data allows us to create very specific and customized plans to aid with infertility, hormone imbalances, PCOS, migraines and more. (There are also tests available for non-cycling females and males alike). Recommended for hormone evaluation.

TMA Hair Analysis

Hair analysis, also called “Tissue Mineral Analysis” (TMA), is an invaluable tool that’s the first step in creating an individual plan of care to address an individual’s unique needs. If bloodwork gives us a snapshot into the body, TMA gives us a chapter. Not only can we see trends over a period of time, but we can see if minerals are actually making it into the tissues (ensuring bioavailability, adequate enzyme activity, etc.). Recommended in cases of chronic fatigue, poor nutrition, heavy metal exposure or where current therapies aren’t working.

Standard Process Symptom Survey

This extensive symptom intake allows us to note patterns in your body and make connections with your symptoms that are not initially apparent. With this information, we can design a custom nutritional plan to suit your needs. Recommended for anyone who wants to incorporate good nutrition into their holistic health plan.
