Conventional medicine is great for emergencies, acute, and specific issues. However, for chronic Issues, such as, autoimmunity, gut issues, fatigue, weight gain etc. traditional surgeries and medications can not only be ineffective, but they can exacerbate issues and even harm your body’s ability to fight problems on its own. This can make healing extremely difficult and chronic conditions worse. Functional Medicine focuses on improving your diet, your gut, and any deficiencies your body may have. As Functional Medicine doctors, we focus on finding the root cause of health issues and healing early, before catastrophic events.

Some testing can be done through conventional laboratories, and others are only available through specialty laboratories.

Testing is frequently done to assess nutritional status, including amino acids, fatty acids, oxidative stress, vitamin levels, mitochondrial function, food sensitivities, and heavy metals. Many other tests are available including genetic testing for a variety of conditions, hormone evaluations, bone health, gastrointestinal health, adrenal function and many others. Some testing can be performed at home with test kits to collect urine, saliva or stool. Others may require a blood draw. In all cases, we will assist you in coordinating initial and follow-up testing.
