We need testing that gives us the right information needed to identify root causes of symptoms, and design effective protocols that get results.
Functional testing is different from the testing you might get from your regular Doctor or private healthcare provider, because it helps us to assess the root cause of symptoms.
Functional tests are very comprehensive tests including multiple markers, so that in assessing the root cause of ill health, we can better understand how a pathway or body system is working.
The laboratory methods used to test specific markers are some of the best available in the world, increasing the accuracy and sensitivity of tests. Functional testing uses optimal ranges in its results, which enables a more effective interpretation when dealing with chronic health conditions and promoting optimal health.
Functional testing usually includes many of the markers that conventional testing includes, and includes additional, more meaningful markers that tells us how the body is working / functioning.
