Gathering a health history is key to collecting valuable clues to why symptoms are manifesting. In order to get to the underlying root as to why there is a chronic health situation one must become a health detective.
Identify Pathogens & Triggers
There are two types of an immune response: Innate and Adaptive. It is important to determine if the symptoms are driven by the innate response, adaptive response, or BOTH!
Test, Don't Guess
This is where it is important to look at all the clues to the puzzle. Most symptoms can have multiple causes, and most causes can manifest as multiple symptoms. Because our body is complex and everything is connected in some form or fashion, it is important to have an understanding of what is going on biochemically to assist the body where needed, and to avoid getting in it's way where not needed

Some of the best tests are the most simple tests. We always like to get as many clues as we can from general blood chemistry however, many times the clues from that point to something bigger under the surface which leads us to looking into functional health tests. Such as...
The GI-Map Comprehensive Stool Analysis
This is one of our favorite tests for delving into bacterial and lower bowel imbalances. This test gives a great overview of pathogens, digestive and inflammation markers, including the gold-standard calprotectin.
Great Plains Organic Acids Test
While the GI Map stool analysis is great at delving into what is going on in the digestive tract, the OAT can give us more insights to other pieces of the puzzle. The GPL test is great for getting markers such as: Oxalates, Fungal, Mold, Nutritional Status, Detox Burden, and Neurotransmitter Metabolites.
As with any test, it is important to look at the results in context and to have a good understanding of biochemistry and a good grasp on identifying patterns and clues about the processes under the surface.
