The BIOLOGICUM+ performs laboratory tests that go far beyond the usual standard. Laboratory diagnostics confirm or disprove any suspicious findings, and these tests give us the certainty and clarity we need. All laboratory diagnostics at BIOLOGICUM+ comply with recognized international standards. They serve to objectify the status of the disease and are also ideally suited to monitor the course of treatment. The effectiveness of the treatment can be verified at any time. Sophisticated laboratory diagnostics are used to identify and treat a disease that has not yet manifested itself in advance.
The following overview shows some of the possible areas of our work.
Laboratory tests of metabolic and immune system regulating substrates:
- Advanced Borrelia Diagnostics The conventional basic ELISA tests for Borrelia are not sufficiently sensitive and specific. To achieve sufficient analytical accuracy, the B lymphocyte reaction must be tested using a blot, a Recomb-Bead or preferably immunofluorescence with a T lymphocyte reaction performed in a lymphocyte transformation test or an ELISPOT. Additionally, certain white blood cells, the so-called CD 56/57 (natural killer cells), which are typically used in the fight against chronic infections, must be tested. It is also useful to check the TH1/TH2 balance, providing insight into the balance/imbalance of the inflammatory T cells (TH1) and the anti-inflammatory B cells (TH2).
- Advanced Rheumatism Diagnostics The diagnosis of rheumatism should not only be confined to the detection of autoimmune reactions but instead should always clarify chronic bacterial infections as well as inflammation-causing pollutants for the purpose of differential diagnosis.
- Environmental Medicine Diagnostics Given the environmental stresses to which all people inevitably are exposed, appropriate testing should be standard practice today.
- Vegetative Functional Analysis The easiest, most reliable and most conclusive method is to measure heart rate variability and stress hormones as part of a daily profile (simply and conveniently from home using a saliva test).
- VitaminStatus In industrial food production, the actual vitamin content of fruit, vegetables, and lettuces is often drastically reduced. Deficits should be assessed and, if necessary, compensated for considering the tremendous importance of vitamins for the immune system and metabolism.
- Mineral Status, intra- and extracellular. In about 70 to 80% of our patients, we find considerable mineral and trace element deficiencies. Minerals and trace elements are just as important for the proper functioning of our bodies (e.g., heart rhythm, acid-base balance, oxygen transport, muscle strength, metabolic performance, etc.) as vitamins.
- Trace Element Status, intra- and extracellular. See point 6.
- Amino Acid Profile Proteins are amino acids, and they are the building blocks of the body. Potential deficits must be identified and, if necessary, corrected.
- Enzyme Profile, including the diagnosis of genetic enzyme defects. Each individual's genetic programming involves highly varied enzyme activities. This plays an essential role in metabolic diseases and detoxification processes.
- Digestive Enzyme Status The enzymatic breakdown of the nutrients ingested determines their usability. A deficiency in pancreatic digestive enzymes leads to possible inflammation of the small intestine (Leaky Gut) and reduced utilization of nutrients.
- Acid-base Regulatory Capability. A cell that is permanently hyperacidic (too many H+ ions) and inflamed can only absorb a limited amount of nutrients and release metabolic waste into the environment for elimination.
- Mitochondrial Status and Performance. Mitochondria are the power stations of the cells where the two energy sources fats and carbohydrates are burned with the help of oxygen to form the body's fuel ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Healthy, functional mitochondria are a basic requirement for a sufficient supply of energy in the body.
- Metabolic Capacity is the combination of enzyme and mitochondrial performance.
- Hormone Status describes our ability to regulate hormones and governs our vitality, stress management capacity and regenerative ability.
- Neurohormone Status is the axis of tryptophan and 5-hydroxytryptophan-serotonin, which ultimately results in the regeneration hormone melatonin that regulates the regenerative deep sleep phases.
- Stress Hormone Status (Adrenaline, Noradrenaline, Cortisol, Dopamine) measures our physical performance.
- Sexual Hormone Status (DHEA, progesterone, the three types of estrogen, testosterone) Regulate our libido and reproductive ability as well as our level of motivation and enjoyment of life.
- Inflammation Status. This is part of every root cause diagnosis.
- Immune Status. Our immune system’s resistance power is also part of the basic diagnostics procedure for every causal analysis.
- Oxidation Reduction Status shows the ability of our body to regulate and balance itself.
- Autoimmune Status. The significant rise in autoimmune diseases is increasingly impacting the occurrence of diseases in medical practices. All chronic diseases must also be evaluated and checked for autoimmune inflammation.
- Genetic Analyses mainly address the individual's ability to detoxify.
- Stool Analyses, microbiome, intestinal flora, leaky gut (inflammation of the small intestine), inflammation parameters, fungi, and parasites provide us with crucial data about this central organ, the root of humans: the intestine.
- Urinalysis provides information about environmental toxins, hormone status, and inflammation.
- Hair Analyses Hair analyses are used to determine environmental toxin levels.
