In the spirit of Functional Medicine, recommendations offered will include conventional and integrative approaches and may include allied health and natural health products.
Functional medicine restores health by determining how and why illnesses occur and addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. This paradigm of medicine is systems-oriented, patient-focused, and evidence based.
Rather than focusing solely on one specific malfunctioning organ, functional medicine examines the whole body and outside factors that are causing illness. This approach empowers you to work closely with your practitioners towards health and wellness.
Lab tests are for information only and not for diagnosis of conditions. Where lab values indicates abnormalities, you will be asked to see your family physician for further assessment. Some examples of functional laboratory tests include:

- Adrenal Stress Test- cortisol and melatonin
- Complete Digestive Stool Analysis
- Gut Flora testing
