Take the guesswork out of health

The Diagnostic Tests Your Doctor Probably Isn’t Running But Should Be

Not everyone needs to do every type of advanced functional medicine testing. It all depends on your symptoms and any existing health issues you may have.

These particular issues tell us that more in-depth testing will be a good idea:

  • headaches / migraines
  • diabetes
  • chronic fatigue
  • high blood pressure
  • metabolic syndrome
  • weight gain/ weight loss resistance
  • Digestive symptoms
  • Hormones
  • Inflammation
  • Mental health issues
  • Vague symptoms, no obvious cause
  • Signs of exposure to environment toxins

 

Not sure if you have exposure to toxins? Some signs are the following: 

  • low energy
  • weakness
  • chronic digestive issues
  • word finding challenges
  • numbness / tingling
  • trouble concentrating

3 medical tests we suggest:

1. Four Point Cortisol Test

This test looks at the health of your adrenal glands, which produce the stress hormone cortisol. It’s possible that cortisol could be the reason you are experiencing weight gain, high blood pressure, blood sugar imbalances, or hormone imbalances.

2. The GI Effects or CDSA 2.0 3 day stool test

This medical test reveals imbalances between the good and bad bacteria in your gut, identifies any overgrowth of yeast, and finds parasites. It also tells us if you have inflammation in your digestive tract and if the digestive juices in your pancreas are low, which could indicate that you’re not properly absorbing nutrients. For some people with digestive and autoimmune problems, this test is a game changer.

3. Genomind Genetics profile or 23&Me

There are a lot of things your DNA can reveal about your genetic potential and we can make specific recommendations for diet, exercise, and supplements that will help you metabolize hormones in a more efficient manner.

5 types of blood tests we recommend you do annually

1. Broad thyroid panel (Free T4, Total T3, Free T3, Reverse T3, anti TPO Ab and anti Thyroglobulin Ab)
2. Essential nutrients: iron/ferritin, vitamin D, vitamin B12, magnesium
3. Complete metabolic panel and complete blood count
4. Metabolic markers: hemoglobin A1c, fasting glucose and insulin, lipid panel
5. Inflammatory markers: hsCRP, homocysteine

Are You Suffering from Toxic Mold?

Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment.  Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foodstuffs.   A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure.  In the European Union, 20% of all grains harvested have been found to be contaminated with mycotoxins.  Unfortunately, mycotoxins are resistant to heat and many processing procedures.

Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet.  Inner wall materials of buildings, wall paper, fiber glass insulation, ceiling tiles, and gypsum support are all good surfaces for fungi to colonize.  These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment causing symptoms of many different chronic diseases. 

Diseases and symptoms linked to mycotoxin exposure include fever, pneumonia-like symptoms, heart disease, rheumatic disease, asthma, sinusitis, cancer, memory loss, vision loss, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, depression, ADHD, anxiety, and liver damage.
