Illuminating Your Health

Functional testing is in-depth specialty testing helps illuminate a comprehensive picture of your health and focuses on the root cause of your concerns. As part of your health coaching plan, tests may be suggested or recommended.

Some tests may be arranged by us; others you may order directly. Functional testing includes tests which assess:

  • food and environmental sensitivities
  • advanced hormone testing (men and women)
  • cortisol awakening response
  • gastrointestinal and microbiome health
  • organic acids (for gut health and neurotransmitter levels)
  • heavy metals (for toxicity and nutrient levels)
  • gastrointestinal health

Functional Test Menu

Here are a few of the tests available, subject to necessity and availability.

Please note that certain states do not permit direct to patient testing (NY, NJ, Rhode Island) so we can work together to find options for you.

GI-MAP

The Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory GI Microbial Assay Plus (“GI-MAP”) a 1-day stool test includes markers for gluten sensitivity (anti-gliadin IgA), inflammation in the gut (calprotectin), immunity in the gut (SIgA), pancreatic enzyme sufficiency (elastase), and occult blood. It also looks for the presence of pathogens – including H Pylori and other bacteria, parasites, worms and viruses – in the gastrointestinal tract. To detect pathogens, the lab uses Real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), or quantitative PCR (qPCR), which combines amplification and detection into one step. qPCR “is one of the most powerful and sensitive gene analysis techniques available to detect the DNA of microorganisms.

DUTCH Testing

Trouble sleeping? Trouble with energy loss during the day? Feel like hormones are out of control? This test provides you with detailed information on how adrenal and sex hormones are being produced AND metabolized in the body.

Organic Acids Testing (OAT)

This urine test provides insight into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Organic acids are the results of metabolism of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity. Specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up or drug effect. This is a very important test if neurotransmitters are a concern.

Vibrant Wellness Wheat Zoomer

The Vibrant Wellness Wheat Zoomer Test is for the detection of wheat and gluten-related disorders, intestinal permeability, celiac disease, and gluten-related autoimmunity.

SpectraCell Laboratories Micronutrient Test

The SpectraCell Laboratories Micronutrient Test assesses the function of over 30 different vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants within white blood cells. This test helps pinpoint very specific nutrient deficiencies so they can be addressed with nutrition and if needed, supplement to more rapidly replete nutrient levels.

Blood Testing

This is a comprehensive lab testing panel which includes a Metabolic Panel, Iron Panel, Lipid Panel, Complete Thyroid Panel, CBC with Differential, Urinalysis, and many other chemistry, nutrient, inflammatory and cardiovascular markers. (Not available in all states.)
