Kalish Method Comprehensive 3 Body System Package with 90 minute Zoom consult
Includes the following at-home tests:
2. GI-MAP stool test - Body System Two
3. Organic Acids Urine Profile - Body System Three
And a 90-minute Zoom consult with Dr. Gupta
This package DOES NOT include any follow-up support after the initial consult. If you require a full service package inclusive of supplements and follow-up support, Dr. Gupta's Signature Gut and Hormone Restore program is more suited for your needs.
The Kalish method three-body system approach tests and corrects the following three systems:
1. Adrenal hormone testing (Body System One)
What is the difference between the single day and the 28-day panel?
The 28 day profile is meant only for cycling women (premenopausal) who want to see their hormonal levels of estrogen and progesterone during the cycle. This test is done by women with menstrual disturbances, infertility etc.
The single day profile is meant for both men and women. This test measures cortisol levels at four points during the day. It is primarily a test to measure stress levels and treat leaky gut.
To summarize, it depends on your goals. If you're interested in seeing how your menstrual cycle is performing, or if your goal is to conceive or reset your cycle, we would recommend the 28 day profile. If these are not your goals (or if you're a man), the single day profile should suffice.
Should I purchase the optional testosterone add-on?
This is entirely your choice. If you are worried about sex hormone levels or if you have complaints such as acne or low libido, we recommend adding on the testosterone profile.
- Male and Female hormone tests are ideal for men and women concerned with changing hormone levels as a result of age
- Cycling women experiencing PMS symptoms, perhaps related to a hormonal imbalance, may benefit from a female hormone test
- Peri- and post-menopausal women concerned with their estradiol and progesterone levels for replacement considerations
- Those wishing to monitor their hormone levels following replacement therapy (oral, sublingual or topical), and subsequently regulate their supplement levels
- Anyone with symptoms involving fatigue, insomnia, stress, immunity problems, blood sugar problems, and an overweight body should be tested for cortisol levels as well as "sex" hormones
2. GI-MAP stool test (Body System Two)
The GI-MAP stool test utilizes cutting edge, Quantitative PCR technology to provide a true DNA/PCR based stool test. This technology has high sensitivity, specificity and a rapid turnaround. The GI pathogens include bacteria, parasites and viruses.
Continuing with this platform, the GI-MAP measures opportunistic organisms, normal flora, fungi, parasites and antibiotic resistance genes. And the Plus refers to immunologic markers for GI health and function including SIgA, Elastase, Calprotectin and Anti-gliadin testing.
The GI-MAP can be used in the detection and identification of gastrointestinal microbial nucleic acids and has been clinically validated for the detection of gastrointestinal pathogens that cause infectious colitis or gastroenteritis. It measures a substantial list of opportunistic pathogens as well as a list of FDA-cleared pathogens, including novel targets such as viruses, Microsporidia, and pathogenic virulence factors.

3. Organic Acids urine profile (Body System Three)
The Organic Acids Profile is a nutritional test providing insights into organic acids and a view into the body's cellular metabolic processes. Additionally, children's reference ranges are designed to provide more accurate pediatric nutritional evaluations. Identifying metabolic blocks that can be treated nutritionally allows individual tailoring of interventions that maximize patient responses and lead to improved patient outcomes.
Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity. Marked accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up or drug effect. Several of the biomarkers are markers of intestinal bacterial or yeast overgrowth.
