Did you know that in most states in the U.S. and in Canada, Europe, and other regions, you can order your own tests without a doctor's visit or a doctor's lab order? It's called "direct-to-consumer" laboratory testing, and I have partnered with True Health Labs to make this service available to you. 

With True Health Labs, you have access to a variety of medical tests at significantly lowered costs -- sometimes even lower than your insurance co-pays! You can usually pay for testing out of health savings accounts (HSA) as well. It's an affordable and convenient way to privately learn about your health. 


The Benefits: 


  • You eliminate the cost and inconvenience of a doctor's visit just to order routine testing

  • Bypass doctors, HMOS, and insurers that refuse your request for specific tests 

  • Tests cost 50%-80% less than in your doctor's office or local hospital lab, and may even be less than co-pays

  • Complete privacy and security for your medical records, and your test results are never added to your insurance or HMO files (unless you add them) 

  • Access to a private, personal health record online

  • Get testing for vitamin and mineral levels to help monitor your response to supplements and dietary changes

  • You are in control of your health

How it Works:


It's simple to use True Health Labs.

  1. Find the tests you want, and order and pay for them on True Health Labs.  (You can even pay by Paypal!) 

  2. Pri  nt out a lab slip for your pre-paid tests.

  3. Take your lab slip to one of thousands of  local laboratories and blood draw locations near you to get your tests done.
  4. Or, if you have ordered a home test kit*, collect your samples, and mail back the completed kit. 

  5. True Health Labs will notify you by email when your secure test results are available for review. It's that easy!

* For home test kits -- i.e., bloodspot, saliva, urine, and stool tests -- a kit is mailed to your home. You send your samples back in the pre-paid mailer, and True Health Labs will notify you by email when your results are available.
