Diagnostic TestingSERVING BEVERLY HILLS AND LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
At Rejuvalife Vitality Institute, we utilize a myriad diagnostic tests that exceed the norm to detect the earliest signs of illness, to identify hormone and vitamin deficiencies, and much more.
Overview of Diagnostic Testing
Disease Control & Prevention
Rejuvalife works in conjunction with your existing doctors to ensure we support your overall health and well being. While we can treat serious medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, depression, and heart disease, the primary objective of Dr. Berger and the Rejuvalife staff is prevention and early detection of disease. Our methods lead to effective treatments that can prevent other serious subsequent illnesses.
Dr. Berger utilizes genetic tests to help determine your susceptibility to inherited diseases or confirm a diagnosis of illness. Your test results can help you make important decisions, such as career choice, family planning, or insurance coverage.
Food Sensitivity Testing
Many people suffer from symptoms for which they cannot determine the cause. Food sensitivity is often the origin of the most common chronic unexplained health issues. Patients are usually not able to recognize food as the cause of their symptoms, as the condition is often masked—symptoms may not be noticeable until long after you have eaten the contributing food(s). Our diagnostic testing can help pinpoint your food sensitivities and indicate the dietary changes you need to make to look and feel your best.
Our newest diagnostic test at Rejuvalife is an innovative test that measures your biological age in comparison to your chronological age. The Telomere Test measures the length of telomeres – sections of DNA at the end of each chromosome that protect chromosomes from degradation. Every time a cell replicates, its telomere gets shorter, eventually causing cell death. Measuring telomere length is an indicator of cellular aging, and research demonstrates that shortened telomeres are responsible for many of the normal processes of aging. Telomere length is affected by many factors including age, genetics, lifestyle, disease and pharmaceuticals. Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity and dementia have strong associations with shorter telomeres. This test can help you discover your true age, and make the lifestyle changes and accommodations necessary to enhance the quality and length of your life.
A test to identify nutritional imbalances
You understand that the food you eat affects your health. Eating high quality, fresh, vitamin-laden foods give you the best chances to feel energized and avoid illness, disease, obesity and future problems such as heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis and other age-related conditions. But how do you know your best efforts at a healthy diet are hitting the mark?
NutrEval is a comprehensive nutritional evaluation designed to identify nutritional imbalances that help to overcome chronic disease and promote optimal health and wellness, including: organic acids, amino acids, essential fatty acids, toxic and nutrient element levels, and oxidative stress. It’s a unique profile that provides critical information for understanding individual disease risk, it evaluates your overall nutritional status, and assesses your functional need for vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, & co-factors. The resulting profile also provides help in understanding gastrointestinal problems and difficulties with your body’s detoxification processes.
Nutritional testing is a tool to understand how your diet and environment are affecting your body. As you know, your nutrition affects almost every aspect of your health. Armed with the results of nutritional testing, you can work with us to formulate a plan to achieve optimal health.
Nutritional testing can help us design a customized treatment plan for many problems including: depression, joint pain, heart disease, fatigue, mood swings, allergies, arthritis and gastrointestinal symptoms to name a few.
