DHA Laboratory is a third generation, family-owned and operated laboratory that performs the kryptopyrrole quantitative urine analysis in-house and services functional blood chemistries used in the research and treatment of over 80,000 patients with behavioral and emotional conditions like:
Located in Mount Prospect, Illinois, DHA was founded by Ellen Hanson in 2003 to support the treatment model of the original Pfeiffer Treatment Center. Ellen started work to validate the kryptopyrrole quantitative urine procedure in the late 1970s and has since worked with the top clinicians worldwide to provide reliable biochemical assays. The laboratory is now owned and operated by Ellen and her son, Dan Hanson.
Nutrient therapies for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, pioneered by the late Dr. Carl Pfeiffer, are used by complementary and functional medicine doctors worldwide. Dr. William Walsh collaborated with Dr. Pfeiffer for 12 years in extending this medical system to include behavior disorders and ADHD.
After Dr. Pfeiffer's death in 1988, Dr. Walsh co-founded the non-profit Pfeiffer Treatment Center in Illinois, which treated more than 25,000 patients, and became a world leader in advanced nutrient therapy, expanding its protocols to help patients challenged by autism and Alzheimer's disease. In 2008, Dr. Walsh left the Pfeiffer Treatment Center and founded the Walsh Research Institute.
DHA Laboratory's core testing supports the Walsh/Pfeifer Model, which has been used in the treatment of over 1 million patients with conditions ranging from autism to AD(H)D to other behavioral and emotional conditions.
DHA's mission is to revolutionize health care. Working hand in hand with practitioners, DHA Lab, specializes in identifying the root cause of clinical symptoms with defensible data and pinpoint accuracy. They support doctors, unlicensed providers, caregivers, and patients in their quest to understand how to treat and relieve symptoms with advanced nutrients.
DHA Laboratory is an independent clinical chemistry laboratory specializing in functional and integrative medicine with a focus on mental and emotional conditions.
