About Functional Labs

To understand our symptoms when bloodwork is “normal,” we must look deeper at a tissue level. Functional lab testing provides tangible data to help find the root of the problem.

At-home CLIA certified functional labs take the guesswork out of the equation.

Types of Functional Labs

Adrenal, Thyroid and Hormone Lab

As you get older, your levels of estradiol, progesterone and testosterone fluctuate, which can lead to weight gain in hips, thighs and breasts. Your metabolism slows and your body doesn’t burn calories as fast.

Gone are the days of weight loss through calories in and calories out. Measure your hormones levels, their ratio to each other and your metabolism to give you a full picture of how your hormones are stealing your weight loss ability.

Adrenal imbalances, an imbalanced thyroid, dysregulated blood sugar levels and sub-optimal Vitamin D levels all contribute to fatigue, body aches, and weight fluctuations.

It’s absolutely vital that you know exactly what your hormone levels are as you age. Plus, if you’re dealing with any type of lowered mood, metabolism or mojo then this is the time to get tested.

When you’re dealing with any issues of lowered mood, metabolism, or libido, or have issues with losing weight, it has less to do with daily caloric intake or how much you exercise and everything to do with hormone balance, cortisol levels and metabolism.

Discover your hormonal imbalances and the other cofactors that allow you to live a life full of passion, energy, and vitality!

    Food Sensitivity Lab

    Solve your food-based health mysteries by testing your levels of sensitivity to 190 common foods. Discover exactly which foods you are having a mild to moderate to severe IgG reaction to.

    There’s no question that the foods we eat have a big impact on our health and quality of life. This is a simple and straightforward way to get the results you need to begin making positive health changes in your life. Welcome to personalized natural medicine at its best!

    The Complete Food Sensitivity Test is a must given the fact that so many people are walking around with various and debilitating symptoms of inflammation.

    You may not even be aware how the healthy foods you are eating may be causing many of your own health issues due to the natural but exacerbated inflammatory effects of the immune system whenever you eat a food you are sensitive to.

    Solve your food-based health mysteries by testing your levels of sensitivity to 190 common foods that often don’t occur for 24-72 hours after eating one of your reactive trigger foods. Most of us have multiple food sensitivities…do you know yours?

    Minerals & Metals Lab

    When our minerals become low or out of balance, our whole-body health can be impacted. On a day-to-day basis, mineral imbalance can cause us to become tired more easily; from a more long-term perspective, mineral imbalance can be an indication of more serious medical issues later in life. 

    Minerals levels, including your electrolytes, provide you with the energy to get through a busy day & buffer the effects of stress. We need minerals like potassium, magnesium and sodium to function optimally.

    This test will enable you to see if you’re dealing with higher levels of toxic heavy metals from the food you eat, air or water pollution, any medicines you take or even food containers with an improper coating. Exposure can happen in our daily life, even coming from skin and cosmetic products approved to put on our bodies!

    Omega 3 Lipid & Inflammation Lab

    Running your yearly blood work with your Primary Care Doctor is not enough to assess your current level of cardiovascular health. And, with heart disease as the number one cause of death, it’s important to look at all causal factors.

    By understanding your Omega-6 to Omega-3 fat balance, you will begin to see how balancing healthy levels of inflammation can keep you safe from a multitude of pro-inflammatory conditions.

    When it comes to protecting your heart, watching your cholesterol and blood pressure won’t give you the full picture. In truth, inflammation levels are often a much better indicator of overall cardiovascular health. What’s more is that ongoing inflammation can lead to a number of other troubling health issues if left undetected.
