The first step is to learn about the present state of your body by charting your body’s AGEOGRAPHY. This method takes the calculation of your “real age” a step further than other tests that rely solely on a series of lifestyle questions. REVITALOGY’s groundbreaking AGEOGRAPHY allows you to learn about your body by evaluating your actual age with a series of comprehensive diagnostic lab tests. The AGEOGRAPHY tests everything from your micronutrient profile to the length of your telomeres.

Required Lab Work
The following list of lab work is required (according to male or female) and is typically covered by your medical insurance:
24 Hour Hormone Panel
This state of the art hormone panel was designed by physicians who were looking for a more consistent, reproducible and affordable way to measure hormones in patients before and during hormone therapies.
HOW IT WORKS:
The 24 Hour URINE COLLECTION – The urinary hormone collection method used by Physicians Lab is a true 24-hour collection—delivering the most consistent and accurate hormone results with a 5-point cortisol.
Urine is the only matrix and testing method known to accurately quantify primary estrogen levels, as well as secondary estrogen metabolites. This feature alone, allows unparalleled assessment of estrogen levels, while monitoring the relative risk of estrogen-sensitive tissue damage in the breast, uterus and prostate during hormone replacement therapies. Assessment of estrogen detoxification and elimination are critical in both men and women and indicate some cancer risks that can be mitigated through therapy and lifestyle changes.
ALCAT- Food Allergy Test
THE POWER OF KNOWING
There is a new paradigm in health and medicine – personalization. Health can be improved and maintained by knowing how food plays a role in your body. The Alcat Test may help uncover which foods and other substances trigger chronic inflammation and its related health issues such as gastrointestinal, metabolic disorders and others. [3, 17-19]
- The Alcat Test measures cellular reactions to over 450 substances.
- Medical studies using the Alcat Test to guide diet have shown significant improvement of many common symptoms. [1-3]
- To date, the Alcat Test has helped over half a million people change their health.
HOW IT WORKS
A small sample of your blood is sent to the laboratory overnight. Upon receiving the sample, the blood goes through a multi-step quality assurance process. During testing, your white blood cells are tested against foods and other substances in a process known as flow cytometry and cell impedance methodology. After testing, the results are presented in a clear and easy to read color-coded format.
CLEAR TEST RESULTS
Utilizing Alcat Test results to create an individualized nutrition plan, based on your immune system, enables you to make food choices that are better suited for your health and well-being. With the Alcat Test many clinical symptoms associated with food and chemical sensitivities can be substantially improved or possibly prevented altogether.
Test results include:
- Easy to understand color-coded test report
- Foods to avoid list
- Comprehensive “Understanding your Alcat Test Results” guidebook
- Personalized rotation plan
- Practical shopping guide and restaurant card

Fasting Cardiometabolic Panel
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death. Standard cholesterol tests can miss that YOU are at risk. Poor blood sugar regulation and unhealthy triglyceride and lipoprotein levels often present long before the diagnosis of type 2 Diabetes.
At REVITALOGY, we use SpectraCell’s CardioMetabolic panel. This test offers definitive diagnostic and clinically relevant evaluation to help define risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and progression toward type 2 diabetes. These check points along with an overall pre-diabetes risk score, help patients understand that not just one factor, but rather a constellation of risk factors, contribute to the genesis and progression toward poor blood sugar control and/or ASCVD. Results of testing allow doctors to know when guidance, educational referral, or treatment is necessary. Key components of the CardioMetabolic Risk Panel are listed below.
Who should take the CardioMetabolic Test?
All patients, and especially those who:
- Have a family history of heart disease
- Have been diagnosed with heart disease
- Are already taking cholesterol-lowering medications
- Have been diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome (high blood pressure)
- Are overweight
- Have high LDL – “bad” cholesesterol
- Have low HDL – “good” cholesterol
- Have high triglycerides
Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals required in small quantities that are essential to our health, development, and growth. Each nutrient is responsible for specific physiological functions, making them unique and irreplaceable. Overwhelming evidence suggests that a lack of these vital nutrients has a profound impact on the body’s immune system. Thus, adequate intake of these vitamins and minerals could mean the difference between a healthy life and a life fraught with disease.
At REVITALOGY, we use SpectraCell’s exclusive Micronutrient Test, a comprehensive nutritional analysis of the body’s intracellular function. It measures 35 selected vitamins, minerals antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients in your white blood cells.
This anti-aging labwork analysis can reveal your nutritional status over a much longer period of time than conventional static serum testing, thus, providing you with a more meaningful measurement than all other nutritional testing.
MTHFR Mutation Panel
MTHFR is an enzyme responsible for converting 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to the product 5-methyltetrahydrofolate – it is involved in the metabolism of folate and homocysteine. The product of the reaction catalyzed by MTHFR converts homocysteine (a potentially toxic amino acid) to methionine (a useful and necessary amino acid).
Why is MTHFR Genotyping Important?
- Certain mutations in the gene coding for MTHFR produce an enzyme that has reduced activity.
- Reduced activity can lead to elevated levels of homocysteine (a.k.a. hyperhomocysteinemia), especially when folate levels are low.
- High homocysteine (>13umol/L) may double the risk of developing illness or complications.
- MTHFR genotyping can provide information about potential causes of elevated homocysteine and approaches for addressing it.
- Based on MTHFR and homocysteine results, physicians can develop dietary and medical recommendations – increased intake of folate alone or in combination with vitamins B6 and B12 are recommended.
- Based on results, recommendations for methotrexate dosage can be adjusted.
Risks Associated with MTHFR Variants/High Homocysteine:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Cerebral Vascular Disease (Stroke)
- Venous and Arterial Thrombosis
- Methotrexate Toxicity for Cancer Therapy
Who Should be Tested?
- Those with high homocysteine levels.
- Those who have a familial history of cardiovascular disease, stroke or thrombosis.
- Those who are candidates for long-term methotrexate therapy.
Telomeres are sections of DNA at the end of each chromosome that serve as a cap to your genetic material. Every time a cell replicates, its telomere will become shorter. Shorter telomeres imply a shorter life span for a cell. Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to date to assess biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal change in the telomere. Serial evaluation of telomere length is an indicator of how rapidly one ages relative to a normal population. Therapies directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases.
At Revitalogy, we use SpectraCell’s exclusive Telomere Test, based on the patient’s telomere length on white blood cells (T-lymphocytes). This is the average compared to telomere length on lymphocytes from a sample of the American population in the same age range. The higher the telomere score, the “younger” the cells. A Telomere Score that is above the average line is desirable.
