Functional Medicine Lab Testing

Have you been told by your physician that "everything came back normal!" on your medical lab tests but you still just don't feel well? If you have been told time and again that you are healthy but you know something if off, functional lab tests may be what you need to finally get the answers you are looking for. Functional lab tests help to identify the root causes of the most common symptoms making interventions much more effective.

MRT (Mediator Release Test) Food Intolerance Panel 

This test will finally give you the freedom to know what foods, food chemicals, and additives are causing your discomfort! Food sensitivities tend to be chronic, frequent, and are extremely difficult to identify and may lead to endless conditions including: IBS, Crohn's, Colitis, eczema, acne, chronic fatigue, headaches and more!  Many medical tests  (including most IgG panels) are not able to accurately identify issues at the cellular level. In many cases, symptoms do not appear until 72 hours after consuming a reactive food making it nearly impossible to know what is causing your symptoms.  The MRT panel looks at the body's inflammatory response to foods, showing exactly what to eliminate in order to heal!

 

Micronutrient Test by Spectracell 

This Micronutrient test provides the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available by measuring functional deficiencies at the cellular level. It is an assessment of how well the body utilizes 33 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants, and metabolites. This test provides the basis to help address a many common clinical conditions including arthritis, cancer,  skin conditions, hair loss, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, auto-immune disorders, metabolic disorders and micronutrient deficiencies.

CardioMetabolic Panel By Sprectracell 

50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels. This test provides a clinically relevant evaluation to help define true risk for heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes, and inflammation. The markers in this test help patients understand that not just one factor, but rather a constellation of factors, contributes to progression toward cardiovascular disease including stroke, heart attack, hypertension and more. Test results allow for a personalized approach including targeted dietary recommendations and medical grade supplements.

 ZRT Neurotransmitter testing 

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers used by the nervous system to relay information from one nerve to another.Optimal neurotransmitter balance is required to maintain proper health. Imbalances can cause the brain and the body to be over- or under-stimulated, producing neurological or psychological symptoms. Common neurotransmitter-related causes of health issues include: Anxiety & Depression, ADHD, Chronic Fatigue, Impulsivity, Cravings, Addictve like tendencies, Insomnia, PMS and more.

DUTCH Hormone Testing 

Hormone are complex. They’re produced throughout your body by nearly a dozen glands and organs, and are collectively known as the endocrine system. 
When they are in balance they interact like a symphony — a mix that determines growth, development, mental function and physical function at every age. When they’re out of balance, growing evidence shows that it can cause anything from fatigue to infertility, headaches, anxiety, insomnia, depression, weight gain to loss of libido and more! This advanced hormone testing was developed to improve on available hormone testing options. DUTCH offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. Additionally, the daily (diurnal) pattern of free cortisol is included, along with melatonin (6-OHMS), 8-OHdG, and six organic acids. This unique combination of clinical information is not available by any other method.

GX Science Genetic SNP Test

Do you currently take nutritional supplements? Are you worried that the products you are taking will have no benefit and you are throwing away valuable dollars on unnecessary products? Are side effects from your nutritional supplements a concern? Genetic variants are more common than we realize:  More than 75% of all people have significant genetic variations (SNPs) in the most important nutritional metabolism pathways.• Millions of people expend their valuable income on nutritional supplements without knowledge or scientific proof of nutritional need or benefit.• Without genetic validation of enzyme function, many supplements are not effectively delivered at the cellular level, therefore, the patient can be wasting time and money with nutritional ingredients that have little to no benefit.

Great Plains Organic Acid + Mold Mycotoxin Testing

The Organic Acids Test offers an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormal toxic levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, affect energy levels and immune function. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete one or more abnormal organic acids in their system. The cause of these toxic levels include: oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, and genetic factors.

If abnormalities are detected in the Organic Acids Test, treatment can include supplements, vitamins, antioxidants and dietary modification. Upon treatment, patients and physicians have reported significant improvement such as decreased fatigue, regular bowel movements, increased energy and alertness, increased concentration, improved verbal skills, less hyperactivity, and decreased abdominal pain.
Organic Acid Example Report

Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment.  Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foodstuffs.   A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure.  In the European Union, 20% of all grains harvested have been found to be contaminated with mycotoxins.  Unfortunately, mycotoxins are resistant to heat and many processing procedures.

Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet.  Inner wall materials of buildings, wall paper, fiber glass insulation, ceiling tiles, and gypsum support are all good surfaces for fungi to colonize.  These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment causing symptoms of many different chronic diseases.  Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage.  With our new MycoTOX Profile, we can identify mycotoxin exposures and make recommendations for detoxification treatments that have been effective.
