It’s not all of them, but in this episode of AskDrGil, I want to explore other lab tests besides pyroluria testing that are helpful for uncovering blocks to your mental health. Pyroluria tests focus exclusively on the urine and are not always accurate. I have had many people with low plasma zinc levels test negative for pyroluria because of this. There are other tests available that can help people including allergy testing, organic acids tests, blood tests, hair tests, and others. I want to give an overview of the different options available.
I don’t go into much detail on any of these tests, I do discuss each of them. The Organic Acids Test required its own podcast which will come. I also am giving more detail about my pyroluria workshop. You can sign up here to find out more.
The first workshop will focus on pyroluria. What is pyroluria? It’s a sign of oxidative stress that when it arises can lead to many physical and emotional issues. You can learn more about it here.
Dr. Gil also offers online consultations for most mental/emotional health issues including RAD, ODD, OCD, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and others.
