Advanced Functional Diagnostics

Functional Medicine is a new approach to addressing complex medical problems. It is often described as ‘root cause medicine’ – as it searches for your unique reason for your symptoms, whatever they may be. Conventional medicine is disease-oriented, where treatment plans are formulated based on the diagnosis, and is the same for every person with that same diagnosis.  Functional Medicine is patient-oriented, taking into account the unique biochemical individuality of every patient. Utilizing cutting edge diagnostic tests,

Costs for labs are not included in coaching costs.

OATS Digestive Health Marker Screening

These tests help us to determine your exact vitamin, mineral, amino acid and antioxidant needs. 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.

Food Sensitivity Screening

The Oxford Biomedical Technologies MRT LEAP 170 screens for hidden inflammatory responses to 170 different foods and food-chemicals. This is different than the finger-prick allergy tests that are available. This screening provides insight into inflammation-provoking foods and food chemicals and identifies the best foods for the individual – the foods that should form the basis of the client’s eating plan. It is not dependent on antibody reactions (IgG, IgA, etc).

Hormone/Cortisol Screening

This test offers a comprehensive look at your sex and adrenal hormones. If you are struggling with menopause, weight gain, fatigue, low libido, PMS, mood swings or depression, these symptoms may be indicative of hormonal imbalances. This test can provide insight into where those imbalances lie. We can then support the specific pathways and hormones in need through diet, lifestyle and supplementation.

GI-MAP Stool Screening by DSL

This test gives us insight into the health of your gut microbiota, helping us to understand the root cause of your digestive symptoms. It provides biomarkers indicating how balanced your gut bacteria is, if you are properly digesting and absorbing your food, and if there is inflammation and/or immune system dysregulation due to diet and lifestyle habits. Based on these results we may recommend a 5R protocol that uses diet, lifestyle and supplementation to rebalance your gut, reduce digestive symptoms and improve nutrient absorption and overall health.
