Infectious Testing in Edmonton
TruMed offers Edmonton infectious testing
Our infectious Testing includes Viral, Bacterial, Parasitic & Lyme Disease testing.
Complex cases often require investigating roles of various infections.
Complex autoimmune, fatigue and fibromyalgia cases may require these deeper investigations.
Your Naturopath at TruMed will help you determine the best testing for your case.
Our Lyme Disease testing is usually sent to Armin Labs in Germany.
Complex cases may require these deeper investigations
Our Naturopathic Doctors screen for viruses such as EBV, CMV, HHV-6, & Bacteria like Chlamydia Pneumoniae.
Viral testing has proven to be extremely valuable in many autoimmune and chronic fatigue cases.
With Lyme Disease testing our Naturopathic Doctors usually screen for common Lyme Co-infections like Ehrlichia, Bartonella and Babesia.
Currently we use EliSpot testing for a quick, specific and lower cost analysis of these Lyme associated infections. We're found Western Blot testing to be unreliable for accurate Lyme Disease assessment.
We also look for yeast overgrowth, most typically Candida albicans.
Yeast testing is commonly done through stool testing sent to Illinois. Stool analysis also helps us determine other bacterial species that are often associated with a number of autoimmune diseases.
Infections are commonly treated with an integrative medicine protocol - our Naturopaths often refer for prescription antiviral or antibiotic agents to be added alongside herbal and nutritional interventions.
Our tests will help pinpoint
Our Naturopathic Doctors work with various natural and prescription treatments (referral needed) to deal with infections.
For genetic testing we are often adding nutritional interventions to support genetic defects.
Hyperbaric Oxygen can be used in the treatment of Lyme Disease.
