Advanced Lab Testing

Advanced Lab Testing

 

Advanced diagnostic testing is one of the major components that sets Functional Medicine apart from the conventional medical model. Functional medicine testing gives us deeper insight into the root cause(s) of your health challenges so we can help you feel your best even if you have or before you develop a chronic disease.

Advanced testing, in many cases, is seen as the “backbone” of Functional Diagnostic Medicine (FDM), as it provides direction and a path to identifying the underlying dysfunction and the cause(s) of the symptoms.

 

Several patients have not been fully assessed and that's the reason they never get better. With advanced functional medicine testing, we are able to identify whats the underlying root cause of their problem. Once the problem is identified it becomes easier to make an individualized plan to fix it.
