Pharmaceutical drugs and surgery are great for providing temporary relief care when treating symptoms and for saving lives in emergency care situations. However, they are terrible when it comes to the actual long-term treatment of symptoms and disease. Why? Because symptoms and disease are not the actual problem, which is why they just keep coming back. They are the result of an underlying hidden issue festering away within your body. In other words symptoms and disease are just the tip of the iceberg and do not give you the entire picture of what’s going on inside your body.
In order to treat symptoms long-term and to heal from disease you must dig deeper in discovering the underlying stressors that are causing those symptoms and the disease.
Functional lab tests get to the hidden root cause of symptoms and disease and expose what’s really going on underneath the surface.
These are not the usual lab tests your medical doctor uses. Medical doctors are trained to treat disease, not create health. Yes the labs MDs use can save lives in emergency situations, but when it comes to chronic health complaints, a lab test that checks for a disease isn’t going to do the same job as a lab test that checks for proper correct physiological function in your body.
As a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® practitioner I can provide access to, and results analysis, for a number of functional lab tests.
With these results, along with your personal goals, I can personalise your gut healing protocol to suit your needs.
Examples of functional lab tests you can run include:
- Hormone Profile (Shows current stress, growth, sex, and sleep hormone status)
- Gut Wall Integrity (Checks for damaged/leaky gut)
- Food Sensitivities (Non-allergic delayed reactions to several foods)
- Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (Tests bacteria, parasite, and yeast gut infections)
Test. Don’t guess.
Uncover hidden imbalances and malfunction within your gut and your body using functional labs. The test results will guide you to many healing opportunities and support the return of a strong functioning gut, a happy and healthy body, and a mind full of vitality.
