2. Metametrix Labs

I do testing with Metametrix Labs, a leader in functional medicine testing. While I do many of their tests, here are the three I most commonly recommend.

GI Effects® - a stool sample to determine how a person digests and absorbs foods, whether inflammation is present, and presence of health-promoting probiotics, disease promoting probiotics, Candida, and parasites.

Organix® - a urine sample that looks at waste products in the urine and can backtrack along various biochemical pathways to determine needs for vitamins, minerals, essential fats, and other nutrients.

Allergix® - a blood sample which looks at how the immune system reacts to 90 commonly eaten foods.

4. Institute of Functional Medicine

The Institute of Functional Medicine was founded by Jeffrey Bland, PhD, 20 years ago. They offer regional and national programs for all types of health care providers. I agree whole-heartedly with their philosophy that each person is unique, that we can modulate our health by removing the factors that diminish it and adding the factors that enhance it.
