LAB TESTING & DNA Analysis
Rejuvenate thru Biochemical & Nutrient Therapies for Adults & Kids
You Are NOT Prozac Deficient!
We know that the human body has no known deficiency of Valium or Ritalin or Prozac but yet prescriptions are at an all time high. We do have deficiencies of neurotransmitters and vital nutrients and minerals
Perhaps you are tired of taking a prescription for depression and want to stop, or maybe you are feeling fatigued, can’t sleep or are feeling wired all the time. We don’t know exactly what you are feeling, but what we do know is mental health treatment is lacking in uncovering not only the why but also the how so you can feel better.
Not at Cardinal Point! We used science to uncover the reason you may feel the way you do and then we help you with a plan to change things, right now. . With our REJUVENATE program we start with lab testing to uncover ‘why’ you feel the way you feel. Then we use biochemical and nutrient therapy to work on fixing it. Not only that, but we can combine this with traditional counseling to round it all out!
LAB TESTING LEADS THE WAY!
What we do know is that you have tried to feel better before and it was really hard. You have spent countless hours on a therapist’s couch and standing in line for your prescription refills. We also know you think about changing things just about every day but are too scared to take action. Trust us, we know what it’s like. Just the thought of knowing how difficult something is going to be is enough to stop you from doing it altogether. What if we told you it didn’t have to be this way? What if the secrets to improved mood are right in your body just waiting to be uncovered? Would you want to do it then? With lab tests, we lead the way to improved mental and physical health.
We offer the following lab tests:
- Neurotransmitter Testing
- Adrenal function
- Food Sensitivity
- DNA Genetic Analysis for Mood and Weight Loss
- MicroNutrient Labs
After we know exactly what to target, we put together a comprehensive plan which includes nutrition therapy and an individualized combination of oral amino acids. Amino acids help you to improve mood and end your addiction.
Your DNA Tells a Story….
No two people have the same fingerprint. Like our fingerprints, our genetic variations are unique identifiers which make us different from every other person. It’s the variations in genes that make us who we are. Our genes are the instruction manual for the creation and maintenance of our bodies.
Sometimes, when cells in the body replicate to make new cells, mistakes are made and a gene that was supposed to code for the word now reads By changing just one letter or just one base, the gene now has a totally new meaning and function.
These small variations in DNA are expressed in many ways. Multiple variations contribute to obesity and may contribute to depression/anxiety/adhd and more. Insomnia, excessive sleeping, fatigue, aches, pains, digestive problems or reduced energy may also be present. Most likely you don’t know if you have these gene variations, which means you don’t know what actions you can take to help maintain your optimal health. We can customize lifestyle approaches and nutritional supplementation to maximize our genetic potential promoting optimal health never before achieved.
Brain health FAQ
What is brain health?
Just like your physical body health your brain is also in need of good health. The brain is central to everything and without it you would not function. We automatically assume that because we wake up and go about our day that our brain is working. However, we typically do not see the struggle that we are experiencing until it becomes debilitating. That is where we come in! We can optimize the health of your brain to reduce mental health symptoms and also to assist you in long term addiction recovery. Brain health is an emerging field of research that has been proven to be successful. We are excited to offer it at Cardinal Point through Dr. Teralyn.
How do I know if I need to improve the health of my brain?
If you struggle with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, ADHD and even PTSD the health of your brain is paramount. If you are in addiction recovery (at any stage) brain health improvement is extremely important as another layer of your prolonged recovery. If you have a stressful life, have endured physical health problems you can improve the health of your brain. If you experience fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, depression, nervousness, stress, difficulty sleeping, poor concentration or focus (the list goes on), brain health is important.
What do you have to do to help me recover my brain from addiction or mental health issues?
Working with Dr Teralyn is imperative to the health of your brain. She has a system of uncovering the areas of brain health that you will feel the most improvement in the fastest. Then she helps you with a plan that will be sustainable and as easy as possible to implement.
Why aren’t other people doing this?
People with mental health and addiction issues are a bit programmed to seek pharmaceutical care first. We are inundated with advertisements about pills to fix everything. Because of this natural solutions tend to take a back seat to big pharma. Though we are not against taking medication we are well informed as to how to help you get where you want to be naturally. Most therapists and doctors are not trained this way.
What is an amino acid?
Amino acids, often referred to as the building blocks of proteins, are compounds that play many critical roles in your body. They’re needed for vital processes like the building of proteins and synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.
While essential amino acids can be found in a wide variety of foods (particularly animal proteins), taking concentrated doses of amino acids as supplements has been linked to many health and mental health related benefits.
What we know is that many people in the throws of mental health and addiction and early recovery are not fueling their bodies with nutritious food. This has starved the brain for a long period of time. With proper amino acid and nutrient co-factor supplementation we take the guesswork out of brain health recovery freeing you up to worry about the things in your recovery process that are the most important to you.
What is a neurotransmitter?
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that regulate physical and emotional processes including movement, stress response, cognition, emotions, energy, cravings, pain and more. Imbalanced neurotransmitter function disrupts the signal and has a profound impact on your health, mental health, addiction process and general well-being.
When neurotransmitters are imbalanced you might be reaching for other substances including sugar, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and prescription medications and drugs. This further contributes to neurotransmitter imbalance and worsens symptoms.
When functioning properly, the neurotransmission system has natural checks and balances in the form of excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters. When balanced you will feel more emotional stability, less cravings and have more energy and drive.
Why is brain health important?
As we age we are looking for more vitality and energy. Poor brain health keeps us in a state of suffering, depression, anxiety and overall fatigue. There have been many research studies that are not linking the use of pharmaceuticals to shortened life spans. It is important to do as much as we can, naturally, to not only improve our vitality and life span but to also improve our situations of today.
Will I have to do this forever?
The idea of improving the health of your brain is one that will stick with you for the long term. Will you have to rely on supplements or amino acids forever? Absolutely not! Our goal is to give you the tools and understanding to set you free of reliance on supplements or medication.
How will I know if it is working?
We live in such a fast paced world that taking a step back to see if our symptoms have changed is a very mindful experience. One way to look at this is to notice the symptoms that you no longer have. For instance, some amino acids will lift energy within 15 minutes. So you will notice less yawning or less heavy eyelids. Over time when the health of your brain is back you might notice that you actually have energy to go to the grocery store after work (instead of thinking about going to bed). The changes are subtle and when you begin to do the things you used to you that’s when you know its ‘working’.
