Spectracell Laboratory Testing:
What Makes SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing So Special?
It is a scientifically proven method of assessing nutritional deficiencies, developed by SpectraCell. Laboratories, a specialized clinical testing company in Houston, TX. Scientific evidence shows that analyzing white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of the body’s deficiencies.
SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Test directly measures the function of nutrients within white blood cells, specifically T lymphocytes. White blood cell nutrient status gives us a long-term picture of how you have been using a nutrient for 4-6 months prior to today.
This comprehensive test measures 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals
through advanced patented technology. I can help you understand what your deficiencies mean collectively, and what they also mean in relationship to other panels such as thyroid, hormone, and cardiovascular assessments, which are additional tests offered by SpectraCell Laboratories.
How It Works
1. We decide that testing is needed and fill out the paperwork.
2. Pay the appropriate fees.
3. Have your blood drawn. Find A Draw Site
4. In 3 weeks your test results will be ready to discuss.
Your SpectraCell Test Results
Your SpectraCell results provide you with a detailed overview of your nutritional deficiencies, borderline nutritional deficiencies, and repletion suggestions (specific dosages and forms of nutrients
that would help you correct your tested deficiencies). I can help you integrate your SpectraCell test results into your larger health plan, including your diet and lifestyle, likes and dislikes, routines, and the logistics of your life.

Frequently Asked Questions
Learn How it Works!
Are you accepting new clients?
YES, I am! Please note that the first available appointment is usually within 2 weeks.
How can I work with you or schedule an appointment?
- You may schedule a Strategy Session.
- If you were referred by a Doctor, a member of our team will reach out to schedule your appointment.
What conditions/diseases can you help with?
I am delighted to be able to provide a variety of health and nutrition education/coaching services to different clients due to my expertise in various clinical, functional nutrition modalities. However, due to demand, I select clients after a strategy conversation has taken place and I’ve officially invited you to join one of my programs. If I believe I cannot meet your needs or that you would benefit from another provider, I will connect you with another RD or Nutrition Coach in the area. I take pride to be of service and to be the best “match” for both you and for me.
Do you accept Insurance?
I am currently a network provider for:
-Anthem Blue Cross
-Hill Physicians Medical Group
-Sutter East Bay
However, I ask that YOU call and confirm insurance coverage for nutrition counseling.
Disclosure: “Verification of benefits is not a guarantee of eligibility or payment; actual payment is based on terms and conditions of your plan. All claims are subject to review as insurance may only cover dietary services that are reasonable or necessary."
Please understand that each insurance plan may differ in their definition of medical necessity for certain services.”

Do you check insurance eligibility?
