Functional Medicine

Picture-No-stone-unturned1-150x150.png

At Beyond Chiropractic we leave no stone unturned.  Many chronic health problems can be difficult to diagnose, especially when they involve nonspecific symptoms such as fatigue, foggy thinking, gastrointestinal upset, joint aches, sleep cycle disturbances, and more. Standard medical testing is designed to identify disease states, not dysfunction. If you want to really find out what is causing your symptoms you need to look for the dysfunctions. That is what Functional Medicine is all about:

If you want to know what is really causing your problem, you have to rule out:

  1. Hidden Infection ( Candida Albicans/ parasite) 
  2. Impaired Detoxification
  3. Food Sensitivity/ Allergy
  4. Nutrient Insufficiency
  5. Anemia

For example, if you are dealing with adrenal fatigue and you treat the symptoms with herbs and supplements and never determine what is causing the adrenal glands to dysfunction, then best case scenario you are on adrenal supplements for the rest of your life.  Or if you are dealing with low back pain and you get adjusted twice a week for a year and you still have back pain if you skip a week, then you need to find the root cause of your back pain. Adjusting alone will not always solve the problem.

GI-Effects Stool Analysis

This test provides a DNA analysis of your stool to most effectively determine the presence of parasite, bacterial and yeast infections.

Organix - Urine Acid Test

Organic acid testing is a way to measure whether your body is getting and using nutrients to drive optimal health. Nutrients are protecting agents. Just as your car has additives and devices that protect it, nutrients serve to protect your heart, brain, and other critical organs. Like a car's gauges warn of potential problems, your body has certain chemical indicators, known as organic acids, that can alert you to potential problems. Also measured are markers that assess intestinal health,neurotransmitter activity, and detoxification demands. Early warnings can help you make diet and lifestyle changes that may both extend and enhance your quality of life.

ELISA/ ACT

The Lymphocyte Response Assay (LRA) by ELISA/ACT, makes it possible to for Functional Medicine Physicians to examine the immune system's general health by monitoring delayed hypersensitivity response of up to 450 common substances including:

  • Foods
