The #3 Test that your doctor may not tell you about is the Micronutrient Test (FIA) or nutritional testing.

Have you ever wondered whether you are getting enough nutrients in your diet or whether your vitamins are being absorbed and utilized by your body? This blood test measures 29 different vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, metabolites and antioxidants inside the cell (not just in the bloodstream). It also includes a test of your total antioxidant capacity (Spectrox), the ability of your body to neutralize free radicals (toxins) that can cause heart disease and cancer.
