TESTING OPTIONS

Blood work is an important part of Functional Nutritional Therapy. Unfortunately, most conventional doctors today only run standard labs which leaves a lot of factors unchecked. Prevention is key to optimal health. The following lab panels will be able to uncover which systems/components are out of balance in your body. By correcting these components of your health, you will be able to live in a way that is truly supported by preventative medicine. Stop dis-ease in the body before it starts and get your functional labs run on a regular basis! Most people benefit from getting these labs drawn once a year, although if imbalances show up, it is highly recommended to check every 3-6 months to determine whats working and what needs to be changed or added in order to bring your values in the optimal range.

Spectracell CardioMetabolic Panel 

Poor blood sugar regulation and unhealthy triglyceride and lipoprotein levels often present long before a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. SpectraCell’s CardioMetabolic, Pre-Diabetes, and LPP™ Plus Tests offer clinically relevant evaluation to help define risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), progression toward Type 2 Diabetes, and inflammation. These check points, along with a new CardioMetabolic Risk Assessment and Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment, help patients understand that not just one factor, but rather a constellation of factors, contributes to the genesis and progression toward cardiovascular disease including stroke, poor blood glucose control including Type 2 Diabetes, and/ or inflammation. You will also learn about your fatty acid profile and find out if your are getting the right amount of heart healthy omega-3 fats that your body needs for optimal health & prevention.

SpectraCell Hormonal Panel

SpectraCell Laboratories offers comprehensive male and female hormone panels that reveal the overall state of hormonal balance in a patient. Like nutrients, hormones influence all aspects of health and disease – mood, sleep, metabolism, immunity, heart health and appearance. An imbalance of one hormone can initiate cascade of events that alters other hormones, so a comprehensive look at hormone status is key.
Hormones are chemical messengers that are secreted directly into the blood, which carries them to organs and tissues of the body to exert their functions. There are many types of hormones that act on different aspects of bodily functions and processes.

Clinical Applications of Hormone Imbalance:
Fatigue & energy levels
Cardiovascular health (blood pressure, clotting, lipids)
Neurology (migraines, sleep, pain)
Mental health (depression, anxiety, cognitive function)
Immunity (infections, autoimmune disease)
Metabolism (blood sugar regulation, tissue repair)
Bone density (osteoporosis)
Physical appearance (skin, muscles, hair)

MTHFR Genotyping

MTHFR is an enzyme that adds a methyl group to folic acid to make it usable by the body. The MTHFR gene produces this enzyme that is necessary for properly using vitamin B9. This enzyme is also important for converting homocysteine into methionine, which the body needs for proper metabolism and muscle growth and which is needed for glutathione creation . The process of methylation also involves the enzyme from the MTHFR gene, so those with a mutation may have trouble effectively eliminating toxins from the body.

SpectraCell Standard Panels (CMP & CBC)

This panel measures the blood levels of albumin, blood urea nitrogen, calcium, carbon dioxide, chloride, creatinine, glucose, potassium, sodium, total bilirubin and protein, and liver enzymes (alanine aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase, and aspartate aminotransferase).
• Albumin
• Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN)
• Calcium
• Carbon Dioxide (Bicarbonate)
• Chloride
• Creatinine
• Glucose
• Potassium
• Sodium
• Total Bilirubin
• Total Protein
• Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT)
• Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP)
• Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST)

A complete blood count (CBC) gives important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells , white blood cells , and platelets. A CBC helps your doctor check any symptoms, such as weakness, fatigue, or bruising, you may have. A CBC also helps him or her diagnose conditions, such as anemia, infection, and many other disorders.

A CBC test includes:

•White blood cell (WBC, leukocyte) count

•White blood cell types (WBC differential)

•Red blood cell (RBC) count

•Hematocrit (HCT, packed cell volume, PCV)

•Hemoglobin (Hgb)

•Red blood cell indices

•Platelet (thrombocyte) count

•Mean platelet volume (MPV)

FIT Test-Food Intolerance Test/ Food Inflammation Test-KMBO

This test measures how your body reacts to the foods you eat and pinpoints the foods that support healthy body chemistry and those that are toxic to you. As your body reacts differently to each and every food, the food you eat each day will enhance proper body chemistry, or disrupt the correct balance. Even nutritious foods you eat (like corn, soy, egg whites, green pepper, whey, or chicken, for example) may actually act like a poison in your body. When you eat foods that form toxins in your system, those foods can cause harmful, chronic problems with your health.

This tests for 132 foods, colorings and additives as well as candidia. The results include a 7-day meal plan as well as the ability to sync your results with a user-friendly app on iPhone.

Price: $450 (Includes basic initial visit to acquire lab & follow-up interpretation)

If enrolled in coaching program $275
