As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® practitioner I offer clients a variety of lab tests.  These labs are processed by Bio Health Diagnostics in Los Angeles, California and Oxford Biomedical Technologies West Palm Beach, Florida.

Functional Lab Testing focuses on hormones, the immune system, digestion and detoxification.  Test results help to identify specific malfunctions and hidden internal stressors.  This process allows the practitioner to provide sound recommendations, guidance and natural therapeutic protocols to help the client’s body return to a healthy, balanced state. 

In my practice, I predominantly use five lab test kits to investigate the root causes of dysfunction.  All test kits come shipped with everything you need.  Simply follow the instructions and drop the kit off at any Fed Ex location.
