Home Health Testing: Identify Problems & Take Action!
Home test kits have long been more than just questionnaires on the Internet. In order to get well, we need to take a closer look at what is going on inside our bodies, which we can do with cerascreen®’s at-home health tests. What are your levels of vitamin D and vitamin B12 like? And what about minerals like magnesium, selenium, zinc or iron? Or even proteins and omega-3 fatty acids? Do you suffer from an undiagnosed food allergy or intolerance to histamine, gluten or lactose? Are your levels of the stress hormone cortisol or the sleep hormone melatonin out of balance?
You can get to the bottom of these and many other questions through home health testing. In the comfort of your home, take a blood, breath, saliva, or urine sample – depending on the home test kit you’ve chosen – before sending it to our partner laboratory. You’ll then receive a detailed results report that explains what your results mean and which steps you can take to proactively optimize your health.
Test Kits from A to Z
So, you may well be asking yourself: What can I measure with home health testing? With cerascreen’s ever-growing range of at-home health tests, there’s no quick answer to this question. To help you navigate our products, let us tell you about our popular and newest test kits.
Among our classic bestsellers are the cerascreen® Vitamin D Test and the Ferritin Test – both of which provide critical insights into the levels of these important nutrients in your body. But let’s not forget that we can also help you check your cholesterol levels and your long-term blood sugar levels – the latter of which you can use to assess your risk of developing diabetes. Exciting developments at cerascreen mean that you can also test for various allergies and intolerances with our various allergy at-home health tests.
Finally, an important recent addition to our collection of at-home health tests includes our Coronavirus (COVID-19) PCR Test, which we consider indispensable in our contribution to fighting the spread of COVID-19 worldwide. The antibody test detects a SARS-CoV-2 infection that has either subsided or been present for a longer period of time.
Leave It to Our Laboratories
The laboratories that analyze our at-home health tests are often the same ones that provide analyses for doctors and other medical facilities. In some cases, they are also active in research and involved in the development of new, state-of-the-art home health testing methods. The big difference is that our at-home health tests allow you to decide when and where to take a sample – so you can save time spent in waiting rooms or making appointments.
You then send your sample in a return envelope to our certified specialist laboratory. The laboratory analyzes your sample, which is then used to write up a detailed and personalized results report that tells you your values, explains the meaning of them, and gives you tailor-made recommendations to implement in your everyday life.
Getting Well: We’re Here to Support You
Especially when it comes to vitamin and nutrient deficiencies or food intolerances, the path to optimal health often lies in your own hands. You can give your body what it needs – for example, by altering your diet and/or introducing nutritional supplements.
With an allergy or intolerance, it is often enough just to remove a certain food from your diet or to eat it less often. If you have a confirmed deficiency, dietary supplements should improve your vitamins and minerals levels, melatonin will help you catch a better night’s sleep, and probiotics will boost your gut health. If you are not sure where or how to start, don’t hesitate to approach us for help. Nutrition counseling and stress management classes can help you revolutionize your lifestyle and get healthy.
