What types of labs used in Functional Medicine?:

Of the hundreds of Functional Medicine labs available, we keep things simple by using a few key labs really well. Depending on your situation, there are different variations of these tests. They include:

  • Adrenal Stress Labs,
  • GI Stool Analysis, and
  • Organic Acid Tests

Unlike other styles of Functional Medicine, we focus on minimizing the number of labs needed to identify health issues and establish a baseline for assessing improvement. Out of hundreds of available lab tests, patients usually end up doing 1-3 labs, depending on the complexity of their condition.
