Functional Lab Testing

Functional lab testing takes a deeper dive into your health by observing the current state of your body through metabolism, hormones, immune system, genetics, and more. It provides data you won’t normally find with conventional medicine. Understanding the root cause of the disease is critical to achieving optimal wellness.

Laboratory Services We Provide

Testing may include blood, stool, urine, saliva, or hair samples to provide information about a variety of systems, including metabolic, nutritional, endocrine, gastrointestinal, hormonal, immune, genetic, detoxification, and others.

Mold Testing

Mold is a very toxic fungus that can grow anywhere in the presence of moisture and may cause serious health problems. All mold is not harmful, however, some species produce metabolites called mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are some of the most toxic substances in existence and are very potent in causing a wide range of serious detrimental effects in the human body. Mold testing at Functional Medicine Florida helps our professionals determine whether mold brings on the inflammatory symptoms you exhibit and plans the best remediation needed.

Heavy Metal Testing

Heavy metal testing examines the levels of heavy metals in the blood and urine. High levels can indicate that you have been exposed. If testing indicates the presence of heavy metals, we can help you to modify your diet, help you determine the sources of your exposure, and assist in detoxing these harmful metals to restore your natural balance.

Nutritional Evaluation

A Nutritional Evaluation assessing your overall health and nutritional status. It identifies possible nutrient deficiencies due to the depletion of good nutrients in the soil. It’s an effective way to monitor progress toward your goals set during treatment.

Adrenal, Thyroid, Reproductive Hormone Testing

Fatigue, weight changes, irritability, irregular periods, and palpitations can indicate hormone instability. It’s important to keep track of the hormone levels in your body. These tests can range from collections of saliva, urine, or serum.

Neurotransmitter Testing

Neurotransmitters testing provides a measurement of neurotransmitter production by assessing the by-products of neurotransmitter metabolism. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers used by your nerve cells to communicate with each other. When imbalanced, it can cause neurological or behavioral symptoms.

Stealth Infection Testing

Stealth Infection Testing is used to discover if your body is under a viral attack. This test will tell you the coagulability state of your blood. A body under attack by a virus clots easily. Lyme, EBV, CMV, and Candida are just examples of stealth infections that your body might be fighting. Causing underlying symptoms that don’t improve despite other types of treatments.

Food Sensitivity/Allergy Testing

Food Sensitivity Testing is important to help determine foods or chemicals that you might be sensitive to. When you have this knowledge, you can reduce the amount of inflammation that those foods cause your body.

Comprehensive Stool Analysis

It’s important to assess gastrointestinal health to see how your digestion, metabolism, microbiome, and immune health is.

SIBO or Intestinal Permeability Testing
