Broadway Chiropractic and Wellness

Micronutrient Panel:

Essential to promoting optimal cell functions. It provides a nutritional assessment of deficiencies that are vital to achieving wellness and chronic disease prevention. The digestive system’s main function is to absorb nutrients from food we eat. Your body will use vitamins, proteins, fats, and calories to carry out various jobs around your body. Having any type of digestive issues may not absorb nutritional components properly and nutritional deficiencies may exist. Nutritional deficiencies can contribute to many factors affecting wellness and the onset of chronic disease.

Micronutrient Test:

  • Vitamin A: Fat Soluble vitamin that is also a powerful antioxidant that plays a critical role in maintaining healthy vision, skin, and building strong bones. Also reduces inflammation by fighting free radicals.
  • Vitamin C: Optimizes production and function of collagen an essential component of connective tissue, which plays a vital role in wound healing.
  • Vitamin B1: Also known as thiamine, maintains good function of muscles, the nervous system, and carbohydrate metabolism. Very little thiamine is stored in the body and depletion can occur within 14 days.
  • Vitamin B2: Also known as riboflavin, helps to break down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Also makes it possible for oxygen to be used by the body.
  • Vitamin B3: Also known as niacin, relieves pain and stiffness with arthritis. Lowers the density of cholesterol and triglycerides (linked to heart disease and cancer) which are flushed out of the body.
  • Vitamin B5: Also known as pantothenate which alleviates conditions such as allergies, stress, and anxiety. This vitamin helps to boost immunity, reduce osteoarthritis, and signs of aging and increase resistance to certain types of infection.
  • Vitamin B6: Also known as pyridoxine, is involved in the process of making serotonin (mood balance) and norepinephrine (responds to physically perceived stress), these chemicals transmit signals in the brain. This vitamin is involved in the formation of myelin (a protein layer that forms around nerve cells).
  • Vitamin B9: Also known as folate, this folic acid works closely with Vitamin B12 to help make red blood cells and help iron work efficiently in the body.
  • Vitamin B12: Also known as cyanocobalamin, helps to better your mood, energy level, memory, heart, skin, hair, and digestion just to name a few.
  • Vitamin B7: Also known as biotin, promotes healthy hair and nails. This vitamin assists in converting carbohydrates, proteins, fats into cellular energy.
  • Vitamin D: Is important in bone health and is involved in the uptake of calcium and phosphorus. Lacking in Vitamin D is associated with cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Vitamin E: Also known as tocopherol, protects the cell membrane and tissues from damage by oxidation. It promotes function of a healthy circulatory system. Also aids the formation of RBC and the use of Vitamin K.
  • Vitamin K: Key role in helping blood clot. Magnesium: Needed mineral for healthy bones, heart, muscles, and nerves.
  • Calcium: A mineral that is an essential part of bones and teeth. The heart, nerves, and blood clotting systems. Copper: Helps with the formation of collagen, it increases the absorption of iron and plays a role in energy.
  • Chromium: Essential part of the process that regulates the blood sugar so it can be used for energy. Chromium involved in the metabolism of carbohydrate, fat, and protein. Methylmalonic Acid: Increased methylmalonic acid levels may indicate a vitamin B12 deficiency. Potassium: Lowers blood pressure and can decrease your risks of a stroke. Inflammation


Markers Panel:                                                        

Inflammation is your body’s way of protecting itself from harmful stimuli, including damaged cells, irritants, or pathogens. Inflammation plays a critical role in maintaining your body’s immune system and heart function, and in keeping you healthy. Injuries, overtraining, and allergic reactions can also cause inflammation. Inflammation affects everyone, but it is important for athletes to control inflammation in order to feel good, stay healthy, and compete at peak performance. When a person is injured and has an infection, you can see symptoms of inflammation- swollen, red, hot patches on your body. Inflammation may occur without any signs, the best way to detect inflammation is with a blood test. Measurement of inflammatory markers has 2 main functions, detecting acute inflammation that might indicate specific disease, or to give a marker of treatment response.

Food Allergy & Sensitivity Panel:

This testing identifies cellular reactions to food, it is the most efficient way to identify “problem foods”. They can often be the hidden cause of health issues such as weight gain, asthma, eczema, headaches, migraines, digestive problems, and many others. Food allergies and sensitives typically cause more subtle signs and symptoms, it can be difficult to detect food sensitivity because often the symptoms wont manifest until well after an offending food has been ingested. These sensitivities can affect you 24-72 hours after ingestion and for this reason food sensitivities are often not suspected as the cause of health problems, and can go unnoticed for a long time.

Hormone Panel Testing:

Endocrine system panel testing, having a healthy endocrine system is one of the most important aspects of your health for a variety of reasons. The main area of the body used to control energy levels, reproduction, growth and development, internal balance and stress, the endocrine system takes on 2 sets of responsibilities: mental as well as physical health. The Endocrine system panel testing is an integral part of finding out the hidden causes your health problems. Optimally functioning endocrine system is vital to restoring and maintaining good health. The endocrine system is a family of glands and organs in your body that is responsible for hormonal balance and health. Imbalances can display as shifts in mood, weight gain, bowel dysfunction, skin issues, trouble sleeping or too much sleeping, and infertility. Hormonal imbalances also impact healing and overall health. Clients experiencing the following symptoms should get tested:

Night Sweats
