Lab Testing

An essential component of the detective work of uncovering the root cause of disease to make sure that it is treated appropriately-to ensure that treatments are targeted in the right direction is evaluation with specialized functional laboratory testing.  From sex hormone evaluation in saliva and urine to heavy metal, food sensitivity and functional stool testing, I offer a full array of functional tests to ensure that your treatment program is comprehensive and addresses your foundational issues.

 

There is confusion about appropriate methods to appropriately evaluate some aspects of health such as female sexu hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.  Many patients are unawares of these differences and allow themselves to be tested and monitored with standard blood tests only for these hormones, ignorant of the fact that this often leads to incorrect levels and untoward effects from monitoring these tests in appropriately.

 

Some clients only require standard blood work while others may require extensive specialty functional testing.  It’s nice to know that all options are provided. I only recommend lab tests that will yield actionable information.

 

Blood is drawn at your local Labcorp or Quest drawing station. Specialty test kits for saliva, urine, breath or stool collection will be delivered to your home for you to collect in the comfort of your own home
