How it Works – Functional Lab Testing

A millennium ago, Avicenna’s Canon of Medicine took the medical world by storm. Then onwards, modern medicine has traveled great leaps and bounds – especially in the past few decades. Though current diagnostic testing, such as an MRI or colonoscopy, is cutting-edge, it still doesn’t screen for major changes and damages that may have occurred at a cellular level.

Functional Lab Testing

Functional laboratory testing is a comprehensive and holistic approach to health assessment that goes beyond conventional lab tests. It may take more than 60% damage in the cellular neural sheath for MRI findings to be visible or years before cellular changes initiate and their manifestation to cancer in a colonoscopy. Although these conventional techniques are applied for symptom prevention, disease identification, and treatment, functional lab testing looks for changes at a cellular level. It can predict an imbalance or dysfunction much earlier. Cells drive all our human physiology and are where every fundamental body function occurs.

Dysfunction at a cellular level and physiological imbalances can lead to disease over time. If this pathology could be measured early on, we can identify many diseases before they cause symptoms. By the time symptoms appear, the disease has already advanced. For example, by the time the symptoms of heart disease appear, the damage at the cellular level has already been going on for years, and sometimes this does not turn up on traditional testing. Half of individuals develop their first heart attack WITHOUT symptoms. Therefore, it is imperative to be proactive and detect dysfunction at the cellular level early when preventative intervention is more effective.
