Labwork

A big part of what makes our practice different is that we run functional lab tests that you won’t find at a traditional practice. Below, you’ll find our list of the labs we offer in our practice. These are NOT covered by insurance. Prices range anywhere from $200-$450.

 

DUTCH {Comprehensive Hormone Testing}

 

In this panel, we are looking sex hormones {estrogen, progesterone, testosterone} and their metabolites. When looking at the metabolites, we get a peek into your detoxification systems + how you’re utilizing the hormone in your body. This test also looks at your cortisol over a span of 24 hours and can determine how your adrenal function is. Additional markers: melatonin, oxidative stress, B12, B6, dopamine, epinephrine/norepinephrine.

 

 

This test is helpful for finding hormonal imbalances + things like PMS, irregular cycles, high stress, infertility, and chronic annoying symptoms (headaches, hair loss, fatigue, etc.).

Nutrient Deficiences, Functional Medicine

Micronutrient Testing {Nutritional Deficiences}

 

In this panel, we dive into figuring out what your nutrient deficiencies are! This can help us target your supplement routine to be personalized and support your body with the building blocks it needs.

 

This test is helpful anyone who has suffered gut issues in the past (or present) and after some gut work is done, we can start repleting nutrient stores due to better absorption. Other reasons this test is helpful are finding out if you have enough building blocks for hormones if you have hormonal imbalances, making sure your immune system is strong and can give answers to stubborn symptoms, like hair loss, easy bruising, etc.

GI Map {Comprehensive Stool Testing}

 

In this panel, we look at how your digestive system is working + identifying any imbalances. When we get to the root of imbalances, we use #foodasmedicine to support your gut. What this test tests for: dysbiosis, yeast, parasites, digestion markers, sIgA, inflammation, enzymes, and more!

 

This test is helpful for gut issues, such as IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, GERD and conditions that are related to gut health, such as autoimmunity, eczema, depression/anxiety, and more! If you don’t have a diagnosis, but suffer from constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, and cramps that you can’t figure out – this test is insanely helpful!

Food Sensitivity Testing

 

In this panel, we look at which foods are actually producing inflammation in your body. This is not your classic IgG testing that you can find on the internet. This tests the endpoints of the inflammation – cytokines, interleukins, etc.

This test is helpful for anyone who is struggling with weight gain/stubborn weight loss, inflammatory conditions {everything from gut issues, asthma, allergies, eczema, etc.}, IBS, etc. This is also a great tool to understand which foods work best for your body!

Heavy Metals Testing

 

Heavy metals are all around us in our environment and food. Heavy metals can be hard to excrete, so testing for metals can help figure out some symptoms and learn about how your body is detoxing.

 

Conditions and symptoms that are related to heavy metal toxicity are neurological symptoms + diseases, respiratory distress, blood pressure conditions, anemia, gastrointestinal complaints {nausea, pain, diarrhea, dry mouth}, osteoporosis, skin issues, infertility, etc.

 

Genetic Testing

 

Genetic testing is amazing to dive into your genes and figure out what genetic SNPs you have that might be holding you back + what you can change in your diet + lifestyle to improve your health!

 

We do genetic testing that can be a specified neurological genetic panel, methylation panel, inflammatory panel, but one of our favorites is our diet + wellness panel. This panel looks into your genes for the diet that jives best with you, how you metabolize caffeine, response with fasting, risk of metabolic diseases, etc. 

Environmental Toxins

 

In today’s day + age, environmental toxins are a huge pollution to not only our environment, but also to our bodies. Our environmental toxin panel can look at which toxins might be lingering in the body, such as pesticides, parabens, phthalates, BPA, and VOCs.


Environmental toxins can develop into an array of conditions and symptoms, such as cancer, fatigue, coughing, wheezing, dizziness, depression/anxiety, skin rashes, vision changes, irregular heartbeats, headache, mood swings, sleep issues, memory issues, and so much more.


Mycotoxins Testing

 

Mold is ALL around us and is an underlying issue that can go undetected for a long time. When we’re exposed to it, it can be in the body nestled into the warm, wet places, like our gut and sinuses. It can release chemicals called mycotoxins that can damage the gut, cause inflammation, and burden the liver.

 

 

This something most people should test for, but people who struggle with inflammatory issues, asthma, allergies, gut issues, and more!
