What should you be eating?
Feeling better almost always starts with a change in your nutrition habits. Food is medicine, and the right nutrition plan will help you heal. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition, and you may benefits from a food sensitivity or allergy test to determine which foods are currently causing symptoms. Otherwise, the right plan depends on your lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
Is your gut bacteria in balance?
Your gut contains different kinds of bacteria that literally keep it moving smoothly. These bacteria are collectively known as the microbiome. If the bacteria are imbalanced, there are usually symptoms to follow, such as bloating, diarrhea, pain, gas, or constipation. Stool microbiome tests analyze the composition of your gut microbiome and can be used to modify your nutrition plan in a targeted fashion.
Are your organs working properly?
You've probably had basic tests like a blood count before. These labs help to identify states of disease, e.g. elevated cholesterol. Functional labs are different because they evaluate the function of organs, which helps to determine the source of your symptoms. Hormones, neurotransmitters, and other key markers of organ function can be the missing puzzle pieces in unraveling your symptoms.

Are your hormones in balance?
Almost everybody living in the United States is in need of hormone support. The adrenal glands are very important to keep healthy and most people are running on overdrive, which taxes the adrenals.
