Research overwhelmingly indicates that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome, in particular, plays a critical role in mediating the effects of diet and other factors on health, including digestive, immune, metabolic, and neuroendocrine functions. Assessing GI (gastrointestinal) health with the proper tools can help practitioners get to the root cause of chronic illness.
Some conditions that warrant testing are autoimmune diseases (Rheumatoid arthritis), IBS/IBD, digestive complaints, diarrhea or constipation, brain fog, skin problems (acne, psoriasis, and eczema ), mood disorders (depression and anxiety), diabetes, and weight loss issues.
The accuracy and reliability of the GI tests we use allow us to create a personalized treatment protocol to address gut dysfunction based on each patient’s results.
The Metabolomics Spotlight functional wellness test analysis provides an in-depth view of the function and efficiency of multiple aspects of an individual’s unique biochemistry and metabolism. This analysis will assist practitioners in unraveling their client’s metabolic pathways and revealing their metabolic status.
Metabolomic analysis enables clinicians to view a larger picture of health by evaluating the function of key metabolic pathways to provide better targeted support and lifestyle changes for a truly personalized approach.
Each functional wellness test contains everything necessary, including detailed instructions on how to noninvasively collect a urine sample and send it in for analysis. A report with the results contains a unique, in-depth assessment of many key areas of biochemistry and metabolism essential for human health, including the following:
Metabolic and macronutrient processing
Mitochondrial function and micronutrient status
Amino acid, protein, and neurotransmitter metabolism
Inflammatory response and oxidative stress
Detoxification and microbial metabolites
Stress, mood, and overall well-being
