Laboratory Testing

Our doctors are detectives, and our job is to identify the underlying cause of your symptoms. We utilize local laboratories to run standard blood tests; however, we use functional reference ranges to help advise on where we hope to see your values for “optimal wellness and health”, rather than accepting the standard reference ranges which are a product of a “disease based” model.

In addition, we have a multitude of functional tests that we employ as a critical tool to help with our diagnosis.

Examples of functional tests include:

  • Adrenal Stress Index
  • Advanced Lipid Panels
  • Antioxidant Levels
  • Bone Resorption Study
  • Candida Antibodies (yeast overgrowth)
  • Comprehensive Stool Analysis
  • Environmental Allergens
  • Environmental Toxins
  • Essential Fatty Acid Analysis
  • Estrogen Metabolites
  • Fertility Testing
  • Food Allergy Testing
  • Female and Male Hormone Testing
  • Genetic Testing
  • Heavy Metal Testing
  • Liver Detoxification Panel
  • Lyme Testing
  • Mold Toxicity Testing
  • Neurotransmitter Testing
  • Plasma Amino Acids
  • Serum Fatty Acids
  • Urine Organic Acids
  • Vaginal Health profile
  • Vitamin and Mineral Analysis
  • Once the appropriate set of standard and functional tests are completed, then a comprehensive program is designed to bring the body back into optimal balance and function.
