Functional Labs

I work with CLIA-certified functional labs that perform the following types of testing:

  • Gut assessment 

  • Thyroid function 

  • Sex hormone panels 

  • Adrenal function 

  • Cardiometabolic testing 

  • Micronutrient testing

  • Environmental toxin and heavy metal testing

  • and more! 

You do not need to be a coaching client for me to interpret existing labs or order new labs for you. Please submit my interest form to get in touch.

My Favorite Labs

GI-MAP

This at-home stool sample collection kit evaluates the following:

  • Over 35 markers for bacterial, parasitic, and viral pathogens; protozoa, worms, and yeast

  • H. pylori, plus 8 virulence strains to assess if you have a strain that may have more extensive detrimental effects on your health  

  • Over 30 markers for normal, opportunistic, and potential autoimmune-triggering bacteria

  • Markers of pancreatic function and bile sufficiency

  • Occult blood and calprotectin, which can indicate GI bleed, tumor, or need for further assessment

  • Two markers of gut immune cell activation

  • Zonulin, which is a marker of intestinal permeability


These tests are most appropriate for:

  • Anyone with digestive discomfort 

  • Individuals with autoimmune disease

  • Those with signs of chronic inflammation who suspect their gut may be the root cause

DUTCH Test

DUTCH testing offers the most comprehensive sex and adrenal hormone analysis and does so using a convenient at-home urine test. It evaluates:

  • Total estrogen levels as well as 10 estrogen metabolites, which help give a picture of how your body produces and detoxifies the hormone

  • Eight androgen metabolites, including testosterone and its precursors, to help us understand how you produces and metabolizes these hormones 

  • Total progesterone and two metabolites

  • Eight cortisol and cortisone markers, including the Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR), which tell us about your overall adrenal function and factors that may be impairing it

  • Six organic acid markers to measure your neurotransmitter production and nutrient status

  • One melatonin level

  • One marker of DNA oxidation


These tests are most appropriate for people who are:

  • Age 20+

  • Not on hormonal birth control (copper IUD is ok)

  • Not taking steroids or other glucocorticoid medications (including inhalers and OTC steroid creams)
