Exposure to harmful heavy metals is increasingly prevalent in today's world -- and the effects can be far reaching. From cognitive decline, mood issues like anxiety and depression, rapid aging and more can all be attributed to heavy metal exposure.
While copper, iodine, magnesium, selenium and zinc are all considered essential nutrients and are critical fuel for enzyme synthesis of our happy, feel-good neurotransmitters -- there is a catch. If levels of any of these “essential elements” become too high through environmental exposure, it can impact many systems of the body, from our cardiovascular system to our nervous and endocrine (hormone) systems and more.
Lifestyle factors like exposure to heavy metals through food, tap or well water, mercury in dental fillings and even the cosmetic products we use could put you at higher risk for unsafe levels of heavy metal exposure and any associated health risks.
For many, our Compete Minerals & Metals Test may have confirmed an exposure -- but this test takes an even deeper look. Using a comprehensive test that uses both blood spot and urine collection methods, this test will dig deeper into your heavy metal mysteries and provide the answers you need in order to rebalance the body.
Because heavy metals and essential elements affect different systems of the body, our comprehensive test utilizes two collection methods for the most accurate results.
This test uses two methods for the most comprehensive results: dried urine and blood spot. Just follow the simple collection instructions for both sample methods.
Allow approximately 3 weeks once you’ve returned your sample for the lab to process your results. During this time, you will be able to schedule your 30-minute call with one of our health coaches. All of our health coaches receive extensive training from Dr. Cabral.
Each lab test comes complete with everything you need to easily take your test at home and at your convenience.
What sets us apart from competitors is that our health coaches are specifically trained to read these types of tests, which is important because you want the most accurate specimen reading possible. That influences the choice of treatment recommendations and helps move you down the path to renewed health!
During your one-on-one call, your health coach will assess your symptoms and reasons for doing this lab test. Your coach will explain your lab results, answer any questions you may have, and you walk away with personalized recommendations according to your test results. These can include:
No More Guesswork
Rather than other at-home tests that make you guess at the results, our health coaches take the time to assess your results and go over them with you step by step. And you can feel confident that the supplements, diet and lifestyle changes we recommend are the right ones for your body and your health goals.
We use only the most premier, independent laboratories who specialize in Functional Medicine testing, ensuring accuracy and results.

Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.
When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…
Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…
It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.
For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.
Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms…
I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the EquiLife line that I would not compromise on quality…
Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would not take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.
This has enabled EquiLife to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.
Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:
This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.
Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!
Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.
Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…
Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.
This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.
This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!
At EquiLife we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
Since I know you’re going to absolutely love and see & feel the difference by using the Equi.Life supplement line I’ve formulated for my private practice, my family, and online community I'm happy to offer you my “Empty Bottle Guarantee!”
This means if you don’t see or feel the results you were looking for, or just don’t believe this was the absolute best product in its class that you’ve ever used, simply ship back the empty bottles, within 60 days of your purchase, for 100% of your product purchase price (not including S&H).
My team and I firmly believe in putting our clients and customers first, and we only want the best for you in your wellness, weight loss & anti-aging goals!
My health coach and I are trying to determine why my thyroid is under performing and this test really helped me learn that I was high in Mercury (I eat lots of sushi/fish) and in arsenic (rice.) After taking the HM Detox, all my numbers went from high to normal ranges. I will do a HMD each year to keep these metals out of my body. I noticed a difference in my anxiousness. A must do if you love sushi and want to improve your health.
We are excited to make it easier than ever to access the world’s best at-home Functional Medicine Lab Tests -- allowing you an affordable way to get to the root cause of your biggest health challenges.
