Your gut often determines your health because it is the gateway to illness or health, giving new meaning to the phrase "you are what you eat" or better yet what you digest and absorb.
Many root causes of seemingly unrelated chronic health complaints like autoimmune Disease, IBS, Anxiety & depression, Hormonal imbalances, Obesity & Type 2 Diabetes may be discovered by simple tests that assess the health of the gut.
You might think that your aches, pains, itches, tummy troubles, and tiredness are just part of getting older. But it is now possible to find out what's beneath certain chronic aliments, as the first step towards lasting relief.
Scientists have discovered that many chronic health problems may be related to the balance of bacteria and other micro-organisms living inside your intestines.

When it comes to diagnosing thyroid dysfunction, there's much more than meets the eye. Studies show that as many as 90% of patients with positive test results for thyroid dysfunction are missed by primary care physicians who rely only on standard testing which consists on testing only TSH and T4, and not based on symptoms of thyroid dysfunction.
There are Seven thyroid patterns and only one can be treated with meds, all the others will benefit from nutritional and lifestyle therapies.
If you find your thyroid tests are normal but you still have thyroid symptoms than it is worth evaluating these prior to drug intervention therapy with thyroid hormone replacement. Proper testing will help to evaluate the situation so an appropriate course of action may be taken, that means a comprehensive thyroid panel evaluated by a Functional Nutritionist!
Dr. Rispoli can balance your hormones with natural solutions.
Hormones quite literally run our body! Out of balance hormones greatly effect how you look and feel.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is not for everyone because it can still lead to cancer if your liver does not excess hormones properly.
There are phyto hormone therapies that relieve symptoms, without the dangers of cancer.

Standard allergy tests do not pick up food sensitivities. But we offer specialty lab testing and therapeutic diets. Find out today and book a Nutritional Consultation with Dr. Rispoli. Note: Report of lab findings are included in test prices. Some Insurance accepted

Every child bearing person should do a full body detoxification program, and micronutrient test for deficiencies prior to conceiving so that their child has every benefit of a healthy birth.
Many people in America suffer to some extent from toxicity due to the heavy load of toxicity we are exposed to on a daily basis from pesticides on our food to environmental toxins in the air we breath to waste in our own body. Therefore, most everyone can benefit from some sort of detoxification.
You must understand there are many types of detoxification programs out there. Some clean the colon some cleanse the liver, some are blood purifiers, some remove heavy metals.
I recommend systemic (whole body)detoxification that addresses the five organs of detoxification and the five gates of detoxification which are different.
Symptoms and signals of toxicity: fatigue, weight gain, gas, heartburn, lethargy, blurred vision, dark circles under eyes, headaches,insomnia, poor memory and concentration, stuffy nose, hay fever, excessive mucus, acne, body odor, rashes, excessive weight, compulsive eating, binge eating/drinking, pain in joints, arthritis, stiffness, or chest pain.
