Conditions And Symptoms

A single blood test can reveal crucial insight into your health

It could even spot a condition long before symptoms appear. We use cutting-edge blood and nutrition testing to help discover conditions and address symptoms. Then, we address the root causes with a customized plan. Our tests can identify the root cause of many symptoms and conditions, including:


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that lasts for months. The fatigue worsens with physical or mental activity but doesn’t improve with rest.

Symptoms of CFS include extreme fatigue, malaise (a general feeling of discomfort or illness), poor concentration, an inability to feel refreshed after sleep or rest, extreme exhaustion or tiredness, headaches, mental glitches, sleep problems, feeling lightheaded when standing up after being bent over, sugar and salt cravings, waking up in the middle of the night for no reason, feeling like you need an afternoon nap between 2pm and 4pm, and an inability to fall back asleep after waking up at night.

CFS could be caused by problems with the immune system, hormonal imbalances, exposure to toxins, gender (women are more prone to CFS), physical and emotional stress, heavy metal toxicity, or viral infections, among other causes.

We can help manage CFS symptoms. It starts with diagnostic testing, including a foundational blood panel. We may also recommend urine and other fluid tests for environmental chemicals, among other tests.

Brain Fog & Cognitive Function

Signs of cognitive issues include fatigue, forgetfulness, disorganized thinking, an increase in the rate of errors when performing tasks, an inability to find words, being easily distracted, frequent worrying, struggling to stay on top of things, and other people noticing your mental glitches.

To rid yourself of brain fog and experience mental clarity, we need to determine the cause. To do that, we test your blood while also checking for the presence of toxins and heavy metals. These tests help us spot underlying conditions and nutritional deficiencies. Then, we recommend a diet and vitamin regimen to safely cleanse toxins and build your vitamin and mineral stores. In many cases, patients experience noticeable changes within weeks.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) & Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

If you or a loved one is suffering from abdominal discomfort or recurrent bowel issues, you don’t have to. We are trained to deal with most stomach pains and bowel problems without medication.

We use proven, natural strategies to manage IBS in a highly effective way.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder affecting the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which includes Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, has similar symptoms.

IBS & IBD have similar symptoms but require different approaches. It’s important to distinguish between the two conditions for optimal health outcomes. They require different dietary strategies, lifestyle changes, and supplements, for example. We create a plan based on your individual test results, allowing us to restore your body to good health and wellbeing.

Food Allergies

Greek physician Hippocrates recognized that a proper diet could help heal certain ailments. He was the first to recognize food allergies when he noticed milk could cause gastric upset and hives. He was adamant about the foods patients should eat – and the foods they should avoid.

Food allergies can create an array of symptoms and medical problems, including an itching feeling in the mouth, tingling lips, swollen lips, swollen tongue and throat, difficulty swallowing, problems with breathing, asthma with wheezing, hives, rash, eczema, nausea, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), hyperactivity, and more.

Delayed onset allergy is the most common food allergy in adults and children. The symptoms occur immediately after consuming an allergic food. Food sensitivities can be caused by inflammation, poor digestion, and liver or pancreas dysfunction.

If you have delayed reactions to foods, it may take 2 hours or 2 days for symptoms to appear. Due to the delayed symptoms, it is difficult for a person to find the offending foods causing the allergy.

To verify a food allergy, we may recommend a blood test measuring the body’s cellular response to 450 of the most common foods, additives, colorings, and chemicals. The individual’s cellular reactivity after exposure of the blood to the various test agents, versus the person’s own baseline control, indicates which substances may be causing a sensitivity-related response in the body.

This test is a screening test: it does not diagnose disease, but it may help chronic conditions associated or influenced by food, including digestive disorders (like bloating, constipation, and IBS), weight management, obesity, type II diabetes, metabolic disorders, and inflammatory conditions affecting the skin, joints, and respiratory system.

We will help you overcome your allergy issues and maintain better health now – and prevent allergies in the future.

Hormone Imbalances

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) increases your risk of developing cancer, heart disease, strokes, and blood clots. Combined HRT increase the risk of developing breast cancer, but it also increases the chance of discovering the cancer at a more advanced stage: it reduces the effectiveness of mammography by creating denser breast tissue.

Hormonal issues are often associated with deficiencies, imbalances, and toxicities that rob the body of nutrients essential to proper hormone balance.

Migraine Headaches & Nutrition

Migraine headaches can be caused by food allergies, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, toxicity, nervous system interference, and an imbalance in brain chemicals like serotonin.

A lab test could show the cause of your migraine headache. Lab tests can reveal a low function thyroid (even if it’s not hypothyroidism), anemia, hypoglycemia, medications causing the headaches, and many other issues that could be causing your migraines.

Candidiasis & Yeast

Candidiasis is an infection caused by Candida fungi. Most yeast infections are caused by Candida albicans, a type of yeast that naturally resides in the gut, skin, and mouth. But when Candida grows out of control and becomes systemic, it leads to symptoms. You may feel drained or “sick all over” because yeast lives in many areas of the body.

Common symptoms include…

  • Acne
  • Bloating and gas
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Night sweats
  • Irritability
  • Intestinal cramping
  • Sinus Infections
  • Recurring genital or urinary tract infections
  • Digestive issues
  • Oral thrush
  • Bladder infections
  • Decreased libido
  • Depression
  • PMS
  • Chemical sensitives
  • Nagging cough
  • Crave sugar and salt
  • Craving for foods rich in carbohydrates and yeast

What causes excessive Candida? Many things contribute to Candidiasis, including antibiotics, oral contraceptives, heavy metal toxicity, processed foods, sugar, alcohol, and diseases like liver dysfunction and diabetes.

Medications kill off the yeast and may work short-term, but they don’t prevent yeast from coming back. These medications can also harm the liver and kidneys. These medications can even release heavy metals: yeast binds to toxic heavy metals, and killing the yeast with medications could release those toxins back into your system, which makes you feel even worse. Finding the source is the only way to reach or regain optimal health.

Gastrointestinal Reflux (Heartburn)

Approximately 20% of Americans have gastrointestinal reflux, also known as acid reflux or heartburn. Over-the-counter antacids like Tums, Mylanta, Rolaids, H2 blockers, and proton pump inhibitors (like Prilosec and Dexilant) mask the symptoms and have serious side effects.

Fortunately, there are easy and natural ways to control gastrointestinal reflux. It starts by identifying the cause. Common causes include infections, food allergies, inflammation, liver and gall bladder problems, and pancreatic enzyme deficiencies. We can recommend specific tests to identify and eliminate the root cause of your heartburn.

Anxiety & Depression

Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders have intense, excessive, and chronic worry or fear in everyday situations. Symptoms include:

  • Trouble concentrating or thinking about anything other than the present worry
  • Feeling nervous, restless, or tense
  • A sense of impending danger, panic, or doom
  • Increased heart rate
  • Rapid breathing (hyperventilation)
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) problems
  • Difficulty controlling worry
  • The urge to avoid things that trigger anxiety

Your body responds to stress by releasing adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and corticoids (cortisol in humans) into the blood stream because of activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. Stress also activates the sympathetic division of the neurovegetative nervous system as part of the fight or flight reaction. As a result, your body releases noradrenaline from peripheral sympathetic nerve fibers in different tissues. It also releases adrenaline from the adrenal medulla into the blood stream.

Our plan depends on the exact cause of the symptoms. It starts with a Foundational Blood Panel and hair test for elements like mercury, lead, arsenic, copper, aluminum, and uranium. After the test, we get a comprehensive report explaining the test results. Then, we make specific diet and nutrient recommendations.

We help discover conditions and address symptoms in a simple way:

  1. Take a quick, free, online quiz. Give us basic information about your health, lifestyle, and goals. Tell us about your health concerns and desired outcomes, if any.
  2. Schedule an in-person or virtual consultation with Dr. Jumper. Dr. Jumper analyzes your symptoms, then recommends the right tests. You receive your lab requisition form or in-home testing kit and complete the test.
  3. Dr. Jumper analyzes test results and creates a plan. Using his decades of experience, Dr. Jumper recommends proven and natural solutions based on your test results. You can start implementing the recommendations today.

Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Many people ignore the early warning signs of disease even when they know something is wrong with their body.
