How Functional Testing Works


STEP 1
Book an appointment!

Meet with our Ayurvedic Gut & Digestion Specialist, Mara Feil, or our Medical Advisor, Dr. Dannette Kallay to review your health symptoms, health goals, and order labs. 


STEP 2
 Lab kits arrive at your door. Complete and mail back to the labs. Specific instructions are included in every kit.


STEP 3
About 2 weeks later, your results will come in. We’ll meet virtually to review the results and provide you with a digestive, food, and supplement plan that improves the health and functioning of your body.


STEP 4
We are here to help and support you in every way. Some people only need one session and others enjoy meeting weekly for ongoing support. How you continue is up to you.

THE FUNCTIONAL TESTS

Saliva

Digestion starts in the mouth. Testing your saliva uncovers your body’s exact nutrient needs, including specific antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals, digestive support, fatty acids, and amino acids. Saliva testing will also uncover imbalances in your body related to detoxification, toxic exposure, mitochondrial dysfunction, fatty acid imbalances, and oxidative stress. This data then drives intelligent supplement, herbal, and food recommendations based on what your body actually needs. 

Testing is easy. Swab your cheek and mail it to the lab. Results arrive in ~ 2 weeks and we’ll meet virtually to review.

Blood

Undiagnosed food sensitivities (different from food allergies) can have a HUGE effect on your overall health and specifically your mood, gut health, brain health, skin health, energy level, weight, and so much more. Food sensitivities (IgG, IgE, and IgG4) are rarely tested, yet they are often at the root of your health goals and concerns.

Food sensitivity testing requires mailing a blood spot to the lab. Results arrive in ~ 2 weeks and we’ll meet virtually to review.
