Functional Health Report

A Functional Health Report takes your lab data and analyzes it to help you understand what’s going on inside your body.

 

Studies show health issues stem from biochemical imbalances. In fact, each “disease” is really a specific pattern of biochemical imbalances. Your Functional Health Report works by analyzing results from your lab data. It identifies your body’s unique biochemical patterns and makes specific, scientifically based recommendations. So you: Understand your nutritional deficiencies and which supplements could help you. Save time and money by purchasing only what your body needs. Enjoy peace of mind that you are not accidentally harming yourself.

Comprehensive Stool Analysis

This test is a must if you are having chronic and vague GI symptoms –frequent bloating, gas, reflux, cramping, diarrhea or constipation.  Non digestive system symptoms can also stem from gut dysbiosis as well.  Fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, depression, food sensitivities, sinusitis and autoimmune conditions can all be coming from an imbalance in the gut flora.

This comprehensive profile helps pinpoint the causes of gastrointestinal symptoms and chronic systemic conditions.  It identifies pathogens including bacteria, parasites, yeast and viruses.  It also measures key markers of digestion, absorption and inflammation.

Neurotransmitter Testing

Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that facilitate the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next across a synapse. Neurotransmitters work with receptors in the brain to influence and regulate a wide range of processes such as mental performance, emotions, pain response and energy levels. Functioning primarily in the Central Nervous System (CNS), neurotransmitters are the brain’s chemical messengers, facilitating communication among the body’s glands, organs, and muscles. Numerous clinical studies have shown that inadequate neurotransmitter function has a profound influence on overall health and well-being. In fact, imbalances in certain neurotransmitters are associated with most of the prevalent symptoms and conditions seen in practitioners offices today.

 

  • Mood disorders; depression, anxiety

  • Adrenal dysfunction; fatigue, insomnia

  • Loss of mental focus; ADD, ADHD, cognitive fog

  • Addiction and dependency

  • Hormonal imbalances; E2 dominance, E2 deficiency, low androgens

  • Loss of appetite control; insulin resistance

 

 

Compounding these symptoms of imbalance are the myriad of bioactive substances like caffeine, alcohol and nicotine and many of the medications used to manage these conditions as well as some cholesterol lowering medications. These substances and medications can contribute to neurotransmitter depletion and resulting symptoms by suppressing or artificially stimulating neurotransmitter receptor function.

When functioning properly the neurotransmission system has natural checks and balances in the form of excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters. These are classified according to their effects on postsynaptic membranes (receptor sites). Excitatory neurotransmitters cause depolarization of the membrane and promote an action potential. Inhibitory neurotransmitters cause hyperpolarization and depresses or inhibit an action potential.

Food Inflammation Test

The FIT Test employs unique methods that detect both IgG antibodies and complement antigen together to determine the reactivity of each sample against a wide variety of food antigens. These methods yield more complete profiles of the various foods that may cause food sensitivities.

The FIT Test is the highest quality and most sensitive food sensitivity test available which can measure up to 132 of the most common foods, colorings and additives.

Bacterial Overgrowth of the Small Intestine (SIBO)

Uncover the Cause of Unexplained Abdominal Symptoms with Breath Testing

SIBO Profiles are non-invasive breath tests which capture exhaled hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4) gases following patient ingestion of a lactulose solution to evaluate bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine.

When should testing for SIBO be considered?

Symptoms of SIBO are non-specific, encompassing abdominal pain/distention, diarrhea, and flatulence.

Conditions commonly associated with SIBO include:

  • IBS

  • IBD

  • Celiac Disease

  • Diabetes

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Rosacea

  • Parkinson's Disease

  • Obesity

 

Risk factors for development of SIBO include structural/anatomic issues, motility disorders, organ system dysfunction, elderly age and various medications (recurrent antibiotics, PPIs) that alter the gut microflora populations.

While aspiration of small bowel fluid (followed by culture and bacterial count) is considered to be the current gold standard for diagnosis of SIBO, it is not routinely performed because it requires a complex, invasive technique, and is costly. As a result, experts suggest breath testing for the diagnosis of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
