Chances are you have already had several blood tests done (yea!), but these basic panels provide a small snapshot into your whole health picture. Conventional lab tests generally look for an established disease process or emergency situations. The trouble with that is you may not have an actual disease or emergency, but you do have symptoms that are affecting your daily life. These lab tests only tell part of the story and have wide ranges of “normal” values. You may still be “within range” but at the lower or higher end of the spectrum and experiencing symptoms.
If you’re a member of the “Walking Wounded” club, specialty lab testing is for you. You may not be diagnosed or sick enough to need daily medication, but you’re feeling poorly enough to know that something isn’t right!
Functional Medicine focuses on OPTIMAL ranges, not just lab established “normal” ranges. Optimal ranges ensure that issues are remedied before the onset of major symptoms or disease onset.
Specialty and state of the art functional laboratory technologies are of extreme value to help connect the dots in the discovery piece that is unique to functional medicine. These labs help Nicole dive deep into imbalances of each to define effective solutions specific to your biochemistry and current state of health. Functional lab testing looks between the lines to find imbalances before the development of symptoms and diseased states.
