Advanced Labs

We use functional medical laboratory testing to get an idea of your overall state of health and the cause of your health issues. Our level of testing is run by the most elite hospitals in the world when conventional medicine at regular centers can’t figure out what is wrong. We run those labs before you have diseases that manifest and we interpret those labs in a more specific manner to determine where your health is going and how to make proactive changes.

The term “functional” is important to understand what we do in integrative medicine.  Functional lab tests are used to determine how the body or organ is really working, as opposed to other medical tests which just measure how much is wrong.

Have you been told all your lab tests are normal, and yet you still don’t feel as well as you would like to? Often, that means that you have sub-optimal functioning, and you need to make a correction to bring the lab into an “optimal” range.

Functional medicine is precise medicine. We test, we don’t just guess. We determine the root cause of your medical disorders, and then treat that cause naturally and in a holistic manner. This is not one size fits all medicine. It is very personalized to your specific needs and health status.

 

The functional lab testing that we prescribe for you may include any or all of the following:

  • nutritional
  • toxicological
  • metabolic
  • immune
  • allergic
  • hormonal
  • neurotransmitter
  • infectious
  • genetic

You may be curious why your regular doctor hasn’t ordered these specialty tests or if they would be covered by insurance. If your physician knew about these tests and was skilled in interpreting them and knowing how to treat based upon them, they would have already been run and you would be feeling well by now. The reason that we have so many sick people coming to us is because the vast majority of physicians do not run our tests or have an extensive background in interpreting them and putting together a treatment program. Your insurance may or may not cover them. If you like, we can provide you an invoice for just the labs so you can try to get them reimbursed.

Even if insurance does not cover the labs, we have negotiated very affordable rates with our lab companies, and this level of testing is an incredible investment in your health. We may discover any of the following are contributing to your ill health:

  • Increased heart attack and stroke risk
  • Nutritional deficiencies

  • Inflammatory issues
  • Digestive,absorptive, and microbiome imbalances
