Functional medicine is personalized care and what better way to really personalize a program than genetic testing? Genetic testing is a great tool in functional medicine testing, and has helped several of my patients in managing their diseases. Genetic testing and bioinformatics helps identify chronic conditions they are more susceptible to developing. This is powerful as it helps patients know themselves in a way in which to be truly proactive in their life. Genetic profiles help guide my recommendations for those who need more support in certain physiological areas, like detoxification or hormone modulation. In the last ten years, this field has evolved from interpreting a single SNP as an answer to all evil (ex. MTHFR) to a more sophisticated system of understanding genetic pathways.
No two patients in the clinic will have the same plan. I'm able to more fully consider your genetic make-up and can order additional lab tests that enable us to design a program that will bring personalized benefits to help you reach your goals. With this information you can learn how to "turn off " the bad genes and "turn on" the good genes to achieve optimal health.
Comprehensive testing is one of the most valuable tools in a functional medicine approach. It’s how we get to the root cause of your symptoms so we can restore your health from the ground up. The right testing reveals the underlying imbalances, deficiencies, infections, and toxic exposures contributing to your condition and provides us with progress markers along the way. There is no need to struggle and guess when testing provides a clear path back to health!
For those without insurance ... wedon't charge extra or mark our direct cost up on any labs, so we can determine which are most important and work from there. For those with insurance, we are out of network, but we can still order your labs and Rupa Health, LabCorp or Quest will often assist with filing with your insurance reimbursement.
Functional medicine lab testing and analysis is one of the best ways to ensure early detection and prevention of diseases. Some of the most useful functional labs include:
With advanced clinical training, we review labs with an individualized reference range based on your physiologcal history, instead of wide reference ranges. With this, you will benefit from detailed reports and regular reviews of your progress.
You are unique and every detail about you can effect your health, your ability to heal and recover and ultimately your quality of life.

Your genes are unique, so instead of having to do what works okay for most, you can c what works best for you.
