Hormone panels, Leaky Gut and Food Sensitivity Testing Now Available
Within my practice I offer a number of tests which you will find below. Some tests are saliva (hormone panels) and some are blood (Zonulin & Food Sensitivity 24 & 88).
TESTS CAN BE PURCHASED BY CLICKING HERE: Don’t live locally? No problem. If you do not live with London, Ontario, shipping can be arranged within Canada and to the US (you would need to purchase this separately, email me for a shipping quote). Follow up consultations can be done via Skype or phone for your convenience.

Why saliva testing over blood testing for hormone panels?
- Less expensive – can be done multiple times
- Reliable way to measure hormone levels
- Blood tests don’t measure the bioavailable “free” hormones accurately – can also be misleading if using a transdermal (cream/gel) testosterone.
Zonulin testing and Food Sensitivity Testing (by Fluids iQ) are blood tests which means a tiny pin prick to the tip of the finger that you would administer to yourself, no drawing vials of blood here.
What is Zonulin?
Zonulin (Pre-Haptoglobin 2) is a protein found in intestinal cells, with production and release mimicking the effect of certain bacterial toxins. Once triggered, Zonulin plays an important role in bowel “leakiness”, and the familiar symptoms associated with food intolerance. Although the “leak” effect of Zonulin has been implicated in Celiac Disease and Type 1 Diabetes, it occurs in everybody.
Food sensitivity or intolerance, is a very common occurrence. Bloating, gas, abdominal pain, headaches and constant fatigue are just a few key symptoms.
Zonulin-24 and Zonulin-88 Canada’s first food sensitivity tests that combine an analysis or Total IgG antibody response to the 24 or 88 food types most commonly analyzed for food sensitivity, with the quantitative measurement of Zonulin, a key marker in diagnosing increased intestinal permeability, often called “Leaky gut”.
**PLEASE NOT THAT EVERY TEST PURCHASED WILL NEED TO HAVE A FOLLOW UP CONSULTATION PURCHASED ALSO (UNLESS YOU ARE A CURRENT CLIENT) IN ORDER TO GO OVER THE RESULTS – this is a non-negotiable part of ordering these tests.
