Why Functional


Chronic illness or conditions can be very complex. What seems like a simple issue can end up in a web of symptoms where the root cause is difficult to find.
Functional testing is the key to gaining an understanding of specific imbalances within the body. Testing reduces frustration and helps speed up the process of elimination by second-guessing. We want to test not guess! Here are my top four tests (not exclusive).
Tests are only offered in conjunction with consultations or program packages.

Dutch Complete Hormone Test

Dutch (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) Complete Test

The DUTCH Complete test is processed by Precision Analytics. The company describes it as an advanced hormone test developed to improve on available hormone testing options. Dutch offers the most extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones along with their metabolites. Additionally, the daily pattern of free cortisol is included, along with melatonin and six organic acids.

This unique combination of clinical information is not available by any other method.

This test is my number one “go-to” for post-breast cancer, weight loss resistance, and functional anti-aging information. Click here for a sample report.


Organic Acids
Test (OAT)

General Description

The Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides information about the body’s
biochemical balance by measuring metabolic byproducts in urine.
The 76 metabolites, including creatinine, detected in the OAT can indicate vitamin and hormone metabolism, energy cycle function, intestinal wall integrity, neurotransmitter metabolites, and muscle function.

Heavy Metals

General Description

In our modern world, with ever-increasing pollution levels, the
presence of toxic metals in the environment is constantly growing. Chemical products, fertilizers, industrial paint, building materials, fish, silver dental fillings, and vaccines are just some of the sources of heavy metals in everyday life.
Toxic metals may normally be present in the body in very low levels, but acute or continuous exposure, as well as metabolic abnormalities can cause accumulation of heavy metals in body tissues, and subsequently, in the brain.

Many symptoms of heavy metal poisoning are identical to symptoms of neurological and psychiatric disorders; therefore, it is difficult, if not impossible to identify their cause without expert laboratory testing. Test results frequently show high heavy metal levels coupled with low mineral levels in people with developmental and neurological disorders and chronic fatigue, as well as otherwise healthy individuals who do not feel well.


Comprehensive Stool

General Description

The Importance of the Comprehensive Stool Analysis Many chronic disorders result from digestive problems and inadequate nutrient absorption.
Even with a very complete and balanced diet, nutrients have to be properly digested to transport vitamins to different parts of the body.

Proper gastrointestinal functioning also ensures elimination of toxic molecules, microbes and undigested food particles from the body, which helps prevent infections, toxic reactions, allergies, and other health problems.
