Functional Medicine Lab Testing
Don’t Guess, Test!
We use very sophisticated CLIA approved labs that provide a deeper look into what is going on inside of your body.
Who is reading your lab test also makes a big difference. Traditional medicine looks to see if you’re in the “normal range” while functional medicine looks to see if it is “ideal” for you. Is the person reading your lab, trained to read that lab? Otherwise the information can be just another point of confusing or unrelated data.
The information you receive from these tests pinpoints in detail ideal lab levels rather than average or normal ranges. Average or normal ranges only tell us where we line up with the lab samples.
Symptoms of feeling unwell: “there’s something wrong but I don’t know what it is,” like brain fog, fatigue, aches, pains, irritability and insomnia are the body’s way of telling us that something is out of balance. But what is it? Don’t settle for thinking that this is just normal aging. Run the tests.
The objective quantifiable data received from functional medicine testing takes the guesswork out of knowing how to address your health concerns. This valuable information also provides a baseline from which to start your healing journey.
The lab tests are completed in the comfort of your home and are easy to use. Each test comes with clear easy to follow instructions including pictures. The tests are then sent to the lab in prepaid containers and the results sent to the practitioner ordering them who sets up a consultation with you.
