Functional Diagnostic Testing
Functional Diagnostic Tests provide a more in-depth look at underlying physiological markers that identify the root cause of disease. Providing the provider with the information to establish a patient-specific treatment protocol based on the patient's unique biochemistry and physiology. Allowing a more holistic treatment approach to treat the entire body and any imbalances to reverse disease symptoms, slow the aging process, and prevent the onset of chronic disease.
Functional diagnostic tests go above and beyond traditional lab tests that provide standard ranges and a general look at what is going on in the body. These standard ranges provide insufficient information in too wide of a range to understand a patient's current health and condition. Many patients have experienced where they are told their labs are "within normal ranges", but still experience symptoms. Functional diagnostic tests evaluate with more specificity in more specific narrow ranges allowing for more accurate treatment to get the patient into the optimal ranges for there unique physiology. Every patient has their unique biochemistry, genetics, and health conditions. Functional diagnostic testing pinpoints imbalances and deficiencies so that the appropriate treatments can be utilized to bring back balance and function to all of your body's systems.
