Functional lab testing can help identify underlying imbalances or dysfunctions within the body that may not be detected through traditional medical testing.


By assessing factors such as nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, gut health, and immune function, functional lab testing can provide a more comprehensive understanding of a person's health status and help guide personalized treatment plans. This can be particularly helpful for individuals with chronic or unresolved health issues.

Functional lab test help to identify ROOT CAUSES of your SYMPTOMS.

Common Triggers include:

  • Heavy metals-lead, mercury, arsenic, aluminum

  • Toxins- herbicides, pesticides, glyphosate

  • Mold, Yeast, Fungus

  • Stress- emotional, physical, infections

  • Unhealthy diet

  • Nutrient deficiencies

  • Electromagnetic Fields (EMF)- radiation exposure


Cortisol is a hormone that is produced by the adrenal gland. It plays a role in the body's stress response and helps regulate blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and immune function. In short-term stress situations, cortisol can be helpful, but chronic stress can lead to elevated cortisol levels, which can have negative effects on the body.


Cortisol is an essential hormone that affects almost every organ and tissue in your body. It plays many important roles, including:

  • Regulating your body’s stress response

  • Helping control your body’s use of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, or your metabolism

  • Suppressing inflammation

  • Regulating blood pressure

  • Regulating blood sugar

  • Helping control your sleep-wake cycle.

Symptoms of Low Cortisol

Prolonged stress can result in diminished cortisol and feelings of exhaustion or burnout. Symptoms of low cortisol includes:

  • Fatigue and morning sluggishness

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Weakened immune system

  • Brain fog or mid-day lack of focus

  • Cravings for salty or sweet foods

  • Muscle and joint pain

Symptoms of High Cortisol

As the body's primary stress hormone, cortisol surges when we perceive danger, and causes all the symptoms we associate with “fight or flight”—increased blood pressure and heart rate, muscle tension, and decreased digestion, resulting in nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.


High cortisol levels over a prolonged period of time can also lead to more serious health issues such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis.


Why Check Your Gut?

Checking your gut health through stool testing can provide valuable information about the health of your digestive system. Stool testing can help identify the presence of harmful bacteria, parasites, or viruses in the gut that can cause digestive problems and other health issues. It can also help determine if there is inflammation in the gut, which may be a sign of conditions like inflammatory bowel disease.


Additionally, stool testing can provide insight into the diversity and balance of the gut microbiome, which plays an important role in overall health and wellbeing. By understanding the state of your gut health, you can take steps to optimize your digestive function and improve your overall health.
