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
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.
