restoring health
is possible

You’re feeling defeated in all your efforts to resolve your symptoms and discomfort. You’ve wondered if maybe this health issue is a life sentence. You’ve applied all the traditional approaches to address your symptoms with limited success. You’ve trawled the internet uncovering conflicting recommendations and diets that bring despair. I work with people just like you. Your body is a complex integrated system, working hard to maintain balance, vitality and health. Symptoms are the bodies way of communicating discord and imbalance. To ascertain what’s driving the discord we need to unravel elusive contributing factors to your health challenges and symptoms. Together, we will explore your historical health and current health, dietary intake and lifestyle. With the help of in-depth functional testing and discovery, we will begin to identify elements influencing your health, previously missing. This powerful combination leads to targeted decision making, bespoke recommendations and return to wellness.

Science Based Tests to Find the Problem

Your bloodwork may say “normal”, but you are still having problems. You feel like you’ve gone through all possible testing and you’ve come to the end of the line without answers. Tests that are traditionally performed may be just the start. There are many, many functional test options that may help uncover illusive components of your health issues. Functional testing can be the start to finding where the real answers begin.

Comprehensive Stool Analysis

Have gut issues? This test uses 3 types of detection and gives insight into the environment of the large intestine. It can assess beneficial bacteria, identify pathogenic bacteria, yeast, parasites, worms, carbohydrate malabsorption, pancreatic insufficiency, immune dysregulation, and more.

SIBO

A large percentage of IBS people may have unidentified SIBO, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  This test is a 3 hour breath test helping to identify bacterial overgrowth running through small intestines. Gases are produced by bacteria fermenting in the gut and then are expelled through breathing.

Organic Acid Test

From a urine collection, we can look at 76 markers which will give us a very thorough and comprehensive snapshot of blocks in metabolism.

Revolutionary Hormone Test

DUTCH

DUTCH is an acronym for dry urine test for comprehensive hormones. By collecting urine samples using filter paper 4-5x throughout a day in addition to a saliva collection, we gain insight into your hormone profile unavailable via blood testing. 

We can see your profile of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, plus adrenal hormones, and the metabolites of those, melatonin, 8 other organic acid markers, and oxidative stress. By testing throughout the day, it shows patterns and shifts. This test is more comprehensive than a blood or saliva test alone.
