Functional Lab Testing
Functional Lab Testing
If you have a health challenge or just want to stay healthy, we offer affordable, high-quality, Functional Lab Tests to give you the most accurate health information.
When we order a lab, we are confident that we’ll get a full panel, not just a few biomarkers. Full panels give you all the necessary information to know what is truly happening within your body. They give us the clues we need to determine what is necessary to improve and maintain your overall health and wellness.
With Functional Lab Testing your test results are compared to the most functional, optimal ranges. Your results really tell you if you’re doing very well or if you’re trending toward abnormally low or abnormally high in a specific area of your health. This information enables you to make the necessary diet, lifestyle and nutritional supplementation changes now so you don’t get sick. It tells you how to get well and how to stay well.
Everyone is an individual who has their own unique biochemistry and genetics. What may be good for someone could be very bad for someone else. With Functional Lab Testing you can really know where you are in your health spectrum.
Some of the available labs include:
Vibrant Gut Zoomer: By examining the entire ecosystem in the human gut with functional markers of digestion and inflammation you can detect root causes of acute or chronic health challenges that stem from the gastrointestinal tract.
Vibrant Heavy Metals Test: Heavy metals may be the root cause of common neurological disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune disease, and disorders associated with increased oxidative stress and cellular dysfunction. This test includes measurement of 20 metals and elements in urine. Once you know what metals your body is burdened with, we can help you eliminate them.
Vibrant Micronutrients: This test assesses the absorption of nutrients at both the gastrointestinal barrier and cellular membrane by measuring extra- and intracellular levels to objectively determine root causes of malnutrition and inflammation.
Neural Zoomer Plus: It detects a panel of common viral antigens that can cause neurological defects, thus providing rapid identification that could minimize or prevent neurological manifestations. This test also checks for blood brain barrier permeability.
Wheat Zoomer: Assesses the intestinal barrier via zonulin, anti-zonulin, anti-actin, and anti-LPS. It also is a highly sensitive peptide-based array able to test for reactivity to over 33,000 peptides in wheat and gluten. This test lets you know how your body is reacting to wheat and gluten and whether or not you should be eating it.
