Functional Lab Testing
There are a number of tests available through the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Medical Director program. The four major tests we prefer to run on all clients are the BH#205, BH#101, GI Pathogen Screen and Intestinal Permeability tests. Others include but are not limited to: detailed hormonal profiles, specific cross reactive food sensitivity panels, SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth), Neurotransmitter imbalances, as well as tests to identify vitamin & mineral deficiences
The Adrenal Stress profile (BH#205) is our signature test, and a fantastic baseline test to understand how the body is responding to stress through identifying any hormonal imbalances that maybe contributing to an individual's primary health issues. It is also an excellent objective test to be taken during or at the end of a 90 Day program to ensure your D.R.E.S.S protocol is moving things in the right direction
This profile is used to evaluate the adrenal glands and hormone balance. In the event of adrenal exhaustion and imbalances in the reported hormones, underlying causes must be determined through additional lab testing and investigation into environmental and lifestyle factors; while also supporting the endocrine system with therapies and lifestyle modifications. Includes Cortisol (x4), DHEA, Estradiol, Estriol, Progesterone, Testosterone & Melatonin.
The Metabolic Assessment Profile (BHD #101, Urine) is a convenient and cost-effective screen of some of the body’s most fundamental functional systems: detoxification, digestion, and antioxidant capacity.
GI Pathogen Screen
This stool analysis determines the presence of ova and parasites such as protozoa, flatworms, and roundworms; Cryptosporidium parvum, Entamoeba histolytica, and Giardia lamblia antigens; bacteria, fungi (including yeasts), and occult blood; and Clostridium difficile colitis toxins A and B. This test includes testing and detection of H. Pylori.
This test measures the ability of two sugar molecules, lactulose and mannitol, to permeate the intestinal epithelial barrier. Ordinarily, mannitol is efficiently absorbed but lactulose, a larger molecule, is not. This test can help to identify malabsorption and "leaky gut" syndrome (abnormal intestinal permeability), which is often associated with inflammation specifically in the gastrointestinal tract.
