LAb Testing

We believe in a “test, don’t guess” approach. Often our clients had basic lab panels with their doctor and were told nothing was wrong despite their troubling symptoms. We can do more extensive testing.

Our medical team uses optimal levels for reading lab work, using research-based measurements as opposed to lab-provided data based on patient averages, which have declined as our culture becomes generally less healthy. With our sophisticated and more accurate metrics, root causes for health issues often become more clear.

Our 3RD PARTY Labs:

We are proud to partner with HealthLab as our third-party in-house laboratory, conveniently located within the Down to Earth Wellness Center building. This partnership allows us to offer our clients easily accessible lab services. Clients enrolled in our Provider Access Fee program can utilize their insurance with no co-pay, making routine lab work hassle-free. For those undergoing Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Peptide Therapy, and Weight Loss programs, a $25 co-pay applies. We also provide cash pay discounts for clients without insurance or with high deductibles, a highly recommended option for those uncertain about insurance coverage. While we cannot provide specific information regarding lab coverage due to HealthLab being a third-party entity, we encourage clients to contact their insurance providers to confirm coverage before getting labs drawn. We can assist by providing CPT codes upon request to help determine insurance coverage.

At Down to Earth Wellness Center, we also partner with Vibrant Laboratories, a leading science and technology company known for its clinically relevant and accurate lab tests. Vibrant Labs is CLIA and CAP accredited, offering a range of popular tests, including the Wheat Zoomer, Gut Zoomer, Total Tox bundle, and Tickborne Diseases testing. During your visit, our providers may recommend functional tests to gain deeper insights into your health. Additionally, clients can purchase testing kits directly from for at-home use and take the results to their own providers. While Vibrant Laboratories testing is not covered by insurance and is available on a cash-pay basis, clients who are part of our Rejuvenate Membership or Total Wellness Provider Access Fee program can use their membership discounts toward these tests.

At Down to Earth Wellness Center, our "test, don’t guess" approach means we use extensive and sophisticated lab testing to identify root causes of health issues, rather than relying on basic panels that often miss underlying problems. This ensures we provide you with accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans based on optimal health standards, not just average ranges.

How does Down to Earth Wellness Center interpret lab results differently than traditional doctors?

Our medical team uses research-based measurements to interpret lab results, focusing on optimal health levels rather than the lab-provided averages, which have declined as general health has worsened. This method allows us to identify and address health issues that might be considered "normal" by other standards but are actually indicative of underlying problems when viewed through a more precise, health-oriented lens.
