Functional lab work provides more insight into what is going on in the body so that you can better achieve your wellness goals. We can help you more deeply explore your digestive function, food sensitivities, nutrient status, cortisol and sex hormone balance, and more. When we pull this data into the bigger picture, we can get a better view of functional imbalances in the body, so that we can help to rebalance them.
We often start with conventional labs that you have likely gotten from your licensed healthcare practitioner, and view these through a functional lens. Or we may suggest and connect you with additional standard labs, often via Labcorp, where permissible by law.
Then we may talk about more advanced testing. Here are some of the functional tests we are able to connect you with or look at with you:
Stool testing: GI Map, GI Effects, Vibrant America Gut Zoomer
SIBO testing: Genova
Nutritional testing: Nutreval, Great Plains OAT, SpectraCell
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) aka Nutritional Balancing: Trace Elements International
Cortisol and sex hormone testing: DUTCH, Genova
Food sensitivity: KBMO FIT, Vibrant America IgA/IgG food panels, Vibrant America Zoomers
Heavy Metals, Mercury, Toxicity: Quicksilver Scientific, HTMA Trace Elements International, Vibrant America and Great Plains toxicity panels
We are currently training to provide more targeted support around mold and genetics as well.
Kits are completed in your own home and then shipped directly back to the lab. Please contact us for more information on functional testing and how it can be helpful to meeting your health goals.
Please note: As nutrition providers and health coaches, we do not diagnose, treat, or cure any medical conditions based on any functional or other lab work. This is the purview of your licensed medical professional only, and we may refer you back to them depending on lab results.
