Real Health Discovery Profile

At the Riordan Clinic, we believe that laboratory testing is essential to the process and is necessary to detect nutrient deficiencies and screen for other major health issues. Our doctors use the results of this lab testing as a vital tool in discovering the root cause of your health concerns.

The Real Health Discovery Profile is The Riordan Clinic’s most comprehensive laboratory panel. For individuals with serious health concerns or for anyone who desires to have a big picture review of their body chemistry, this complete profile is the best option. If you have been seeking answers about your health concerns and other approaches have failed, this nutrient panel review may be the missing link.

In addition to being an important tool for identifying major health issues, the Real Health Discovery Profile detects nutrient deficiencies that are often the root of those concerns. The results from this screening provide our health care team the information they need to discover the underlying causes of symptoms and dis-ease.

Dr. Ron Hunninghake, MD, Chief Medical Officer for the Riordan Clinic, provides an excellent description of the Real Health Discovery process.

 “Subjectively, we take time to carefully hear the patient’s medical story, listening for clues that can help unearth hidden root causes of their illness. Objectively, we depend on a comprehensive laboratory panel of biomarkers. Lab results serve as a cellular microscope which can reveal hidden toxicities, infections, inflammatory conditions, nutrient and hormonal deficiencies, and neurotransmitter imbalances.”

The Riordan Clinic Real Health Discovery Profile is available to all new and existing patients.
