Functional Diagnostics

As a Functional Diagnostic Practitioner, we can now explore elements of health and wellness from a clinical perspective to help uncover hidden stressors that may impact your health.  This is a list of services now being offered along with costs and details.  Individuals interested in these services should fill out a contact form or schedule a phone consultation to discuss scheduling. 


Food Sensitivity Screening

The Oxford Biomedical Technologies MRT LEAP 170 screens for hidden inflammatory responses to 170 different foods and food-chemicals.


GI-MAP Stool Screening by DSL

The Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory GI Microbial Assay Plus (“GI-MAP”) 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.


Hormone/Cortisol Screening

The Stress & Hormone Profile (SHP) measures 4 point cortisol, estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA-S, with the addition of the daytime levels of Melatonin and Secretory IgA (SIgA), key indicators of immune and stress imbalance or dysfunction.


Liver/Detoxification Screening

FLUIDS iQ’s Metabolic Wellness Profile dried urine test measures levels of Indican, Total Bile Acids and 8-OHdG…key metabolic markers of Digestion, Detoxification and Oxidative Stress. This is an excellent replacement for the former BioHealth 101 Metabolic Assessment.


Metabolic Typing Assessment

Haven’t found the perfect diet? That’s because no one diet is right for everybody. Metabolic Typing® (MT) is a revolutionary system that addresses each person at a fundamental metabolic level, allowing for increased energy, weight loss and greater resistance to disease.


Mucosal Barrier Screening

Zonulin (pre-Haptoglobin 2) is a protein that modulates the permeability of tight junctions between cells of the digestive tract wall. Once triggered, Zonulin plays an important role in the creation of what we think of as gut “leakiness.” Histamine is an important regulator of gut function and plays a key role in the body’s inflammatory processes. Diamine Oxidase (DAO) is one of the primary ways our body makes sure that Histamine levels stay in check.
