Functional Nutrition

Especially in the analysis of chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, neuropathy, migraine headaches, thyroid disorders, and many others, nutritional evaluation is mandatory. This allows us to determine the true cause of your condition and to obtain the quickest and most efficient results possible.

Food Sensitivity Testing: Intolerance to foods such as gluten, soy, yeast, dairy, and egg can wreak havoc on your digestive system and can also lead to inflammation in your body resulting in pain, fatigue, and many other symptoms. Food sensitivity testing helps to discover these intolerances.

Complete Blood Chemistry Panel: Blood work can quickly determine the presence of functional shifts in your natural physiology that may be contributing to your condition.  These tests may include thyroid panels, complete blood counts (CBCs), blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, iron levels, vitamin D levels, and much more. Detecting a functional shift can avoid the damage that occurs when your lab values dip into the pathological ranges often measured by typical lab tests.

Adrenal Stress Index: This test easily measures your cortisol levels and the function of the adrenal glands which manufacture this important hormone. High levels of stress affect your metabolism and how your body handles many compounds, resulting in changes to your brain and thyroid gland.

Hormone Panel: Imbalances in hormone regulation are very common in our society. We look for the underlying causes of hormonal imbalances and seek ways to naturally and nutritionally support these pathways.

Neurotransmitter Assessment: An assessment of your symptoms can divulge much information concerning deficits in neurotransmitters and their regulation.

Metabolic Assessment: An assessment of your symptoms can divulge much information concerning deficits in metabolic actions and nutritional requirements.
