Functional Lab Testing

Most lab testing just looks for disease pathology.  We utilize functional laboratory tests that look at how well your body is actually functioning so we can identify imbalances.  We then use that information to create an individualized treatment plan to prevent illness/disease & optimize your health.

Our focus is on returning balance to your internal systems and external environment so your body can self-regulate and self-heal, which it is innately designed to do.  To help us restore this balance, we utilize the following functional lab tests:
