The body is designed to function perfectly. Cells do not need to be told what to do. Cells, tissues, organs and systems are constantly seeking a state of ease and function. Symptoms are the signal that your body is sending telling you that something is not functioning well, something is wrong.
Functional medicine lab testing, like those outlined below, are not just another series of tests. These are tests seek at the deepest level possible the underlying causes: the imbalances, deficiencies or overburdened, exposing additional hidden triggers that are known to be contributing factors to unpleasant, unwanted and even debilitating symptoms.
The reason we use functional lab testing when appropriate is to help get an overall clearer picture of what’s going on inside your body that’s contributing to your specific imbalances.
- Functional lab testing gives us a starting place to work from that removes the guesswork.
- Diagnostic screening such as these listed below saves time by allowing us to put into place sooner, highly individualized, time-honored protocols and self-care treatments proven to work for you.
- Saving time means that much less time you spend feeling the ill effects of dis-ease and discomfort and getting root cause resolution of your symptoms sooner.
See below for a list of the five most common lab tests we use to get a look at the WHOLE picture then clinically correlate the lab results with the individual client’s history, main health concerns, symptoms, lifestyle and genetics to create a restorative, re-building program.
