In functional nutrition, we use these lab tests to gain a more clear picture about the interconnected imbalances leading to your health challenges. We investigate food sensitivities, immune and autoimmune reactivity, digestive infections, digestive capacity, inflammation, and blood chemistry markers. We'll help you prioritize next steps and powerful protocols based on clear evidence discovered in these state-of-the-art lab tests. What's unique about functional nutrition is that we help you understand what needs to be done to deal with the issues we discover.
Beyond medical care, beyond medical diagnosis and treatment, lab testing gives functional nutritional therapists a path forward to transforming your food, supplement and lifestyle strategies in a targeted way to meet your needs. Labs also give us the ability to track your progress beyond symptom analysis alone.
Our go to test for assessing digestion and digestive infections is The GI MAP (Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus). It s an at-home stool test used to investigate pathogenic infections and microbiome imbalances in the digestive system., plus inflammatory and digestive markers. A balanced digestive system is absolutely essential for optimal health. Because digestive issues often do not present with digestive SYMPTOMS, testing is essential.
Digestive infections are often a hidden barrier to achieving your health and wellness goals. When the wrong species of parasites, bacteria, works or fungus take over the intestinal tract, it can result in a wide range of health problems including:
We work with several great food sensitivity tests. We investigate inflammatory reactions to foods and immune and autoimmune reactions. During our work together, we will identify whether testing is an important step for you and which test makes the most sense for your needs.
Understanding your food sensitivities and immune reactivity is essential to any rebalancing protocol and for the body to heal. When we remove inflammatory foods, it gives our bodies a chance to heal rather than spiral into worse and more serious serious health problems. It can also be important in calming down autoimmune flares and achieving autoimmune remission.
We offer a detailed and comprehensive blood panel with over 55 individual markers including thyroid autoimmunity, lipids, iron markers, sugar markers, inflammation and immune markers, and more.
