Key Features That Set Us Apart
No general screening test is more efficient, effective, and affordable than a comprehensive blood chemistry panel. It allows us to establish a baseline of biomarkers to track your health and nutritional needs. Getting a blood test is essential to understanding your current health. Science-Based Nutrition in Mobile is the most comprehensive analysis available. Below are some of the key features that set us apart from others:

Our Professional TEAM
we may be able to offer a new solution
We are proud to offer the highest level of nutritional analysis available by providing patients with a Science-Based Nutrition™ report of findings and recommendations. Science-Based Nutrition™ uses the latest in diagnostic testing, (blood, heavy metal, toxic element, tissue, mineral etc.), to reveal nutritional deficiencies, illness, or tendencies toward disease even before symptoms have manifested.
THERE MAY BE HOPE FOR YOU
The body does have the ability to heal, repair and maintain itself. This ability is called “innate”. This is an inherent design we are naturally born with. By using these valuable tests, we are able to make specific dietary, supplementation, and lifestyle recommendations and monitor your progress through re-testing.
Why do extensive laboratory testing?
Due to our environment and the quality and processing of our food, we are exposed to higher levels of toxins than ever before. This increasing level of environmental toxins is resulting in children becoming sicker with more chronic diseases than ever before and it has been said many times in the media that the children today will not live to be as old as their grandparents. Stop guessing about your child’s health and get tested today. An investment in their health today can lead to a healthier adult tomorrow. Clearing up your child’s acne naturally will have far greater benefits than just clear skin. See a sample report of what we can provide to show you exactly what poor diet and heavy metal toxicities need to be corrected, and how you can correct them to clear up acne issues

Frequently Asked Questions
Let’s use a flat tire as an example. Suppose one day you see a tire going flat on your car. You go to a ‘tire expert’ who puts more air in the tire and that takes care of it but in a couple of days, it is flat again. The “tire expert” continues to say that you just need more air but now the tire continues to go flat faster and other problems are developing. Now you need air more and more frequently and maybe you’re to the point you need air every day or several times a day. Now obviously, a smart person would want to know why the tire is going flat, fix it, and be done with adding air. The tire isn’t going flat because it lacks air…something else is causing the air to leak out. You might go to someone who would examine the tire and find that a nail is causing the problem that was leading to the flat tire.
Just adding air did not fix the flat tire problem. This is just like taking drugs to reduce pain, inflammation, high blood pressure, indigestion, or reduce other symptoms. It is not fixing the primary cause of the problem that is causing your symptoms. A good indication that you are getting worse is if you are needing to take more and more drugs to relieve your symptoms. You are getting sicker. In fact, if the drugs were really working, you would not need them but only for a day or 2. If you keep getting ‘nails in your tires’ or other symptoms, it will be far better to find someone who is really concerned about your health and will find the true cause of your problems. This way the symptoms will often resolve rather quickly without the need for drugs.
“The disease might be serious but sometimes the solution is simple, easy, natural, quick, and inexpensive.”
- Dr. Van D. Merkle
In a crisis, injury, or prolonged neglect, medical care, and drugs might be necessary but this is rare and should only be temporary if a person chooses to get healthy. Healthy people need no drugs. Testing is key to finding out the true condition of the body. Most diseases and conditions will show up in the blood, hair, and urine long before symptoms occur.
In fact, often symptoms might not be evident till end-stage conditions have developed. You can be relatively symptom-free and have only 20% liver, kidney and pancreatic function left. We have all had friends that thought they were healthy only to die suddenly or quickly after a serious disease or condition was found that had unknowingly progressed to a critical phase. All of these conditions and diseases would have been found with proper testing.
Everyone should get properly tested at least once a year because the earlier you find a problem, the easier it is to fix and the better the results you will have. We encourage you to get tested with a properly trained HEALTH expert to identify those weaknesses in your body so you have a science-based game plan to get yourself healthier. Then, plan to get tested once per year to prevent problems that could be creeping up on you. THIS IS real preventative healthcare.
When disease occurs, regardless of the name of the condition, it is vitally important to try to find out why the disease or symptom developed otherwise how can you possibly know how to treat or correct the condition?
Several Key Components To Maintain Health:
- Optimal nutrients (tools) that it needs to heal and repair and keep all systems running optimally.
- Identify and reduce exposures to toxic elements, environmental chemicals, heavy metals and other stressors that can interfere with repair and cause nutrient depletions.
- Our Clinic vs walkinlab.com include a Doctor's Consultation and Personalized Supplement Recommendations
- Foundational blood test includes cholesterol, thyroid, CBC, liver and kidney panels, diabetes, infection, and inflammation.
- Hair testing includes toxic elements such as mercury, lead, arsenic, copper, aluminum, and uranium.
- After the testing is completed a comprehensive report will be developed explaining the test results, diet, and nutrient recommendations.
Contamination of our environment is, unfortunately, a common by-product of modern society. Toxic elements called heavy metals are known to accumulate in our soil, water, air, and food. Examples of heavy metals are lead, arsenic, uranium, cadmium, mercury, and aluminum.
Repeated exposure to these toxins can result in significant health risks. Heavy metal toxicity may cause or contribute to a number of unwanted symptoms including anemia, learning deficits, behavior changes, tremors and other nervous system disorders, gingivitis, cancer, fatigue, headaches, memory difficulties, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Autism, and MS.
Cases of severe poisoning due to lead, mercury, and exposure to other heavy metals are now somewhat rare. However, chronic, low-level exposure from occupational, environmental, and foods is much more common and poses a significant risk to your current and long term health because the effects tend to be cumulative and usually insidious. Think of it as a slow poisoning.
We can perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to detect the presence of heavy metals in your body. Then Dr. Bert will design a plan that may include specialized testing and oral chelation to decrease the toxic burden of these substances on your body and help you identify the source of your exposure to those elements.
