Educational Resources

Learning new things and especially learning something deeper is fascinating to me. We have a great advantage today with access to a vast collection of knowledge.  

Tapping into it can sometimes be overwhelming.

Where do we turn to first?   Below you will find some of my favorite avenues for digging deeper... 

For years I have struggled with being able to keep my weight in a healthy range.  I have tried a ridiculous amount of 'diets'.  Some have helped get the weight off, others not so much, however long-term I am unable to sustain lesser weight.  It has taken delving into a functional and holistic approach for me to understand why it is my body has challenges with maintaining a healthy weight.  One of the things I found was that I do significantly better when I eat a higher quantity of foods rather than a restricted caloric intake.  When I was talking with a fellow functional health professional, Julie Olson, CN, BCHN, B.Sc., Dip.C.N., it was a breath of fresh air to hear her confirm and validate the common misconception that we have to starve ourselves to lose weight!  This has led to us partnering together to bring her Eat More, Weigh Less program to The Functional Perspective.

Lab Information Resources

Comprehensive Stool Analysis – GI Map/Diagnostic Solutions – There are a variety of webinars and interpretive guides on this page

Integrated Urinalysis Panel - The Integrated Urinalysis Panel is a laboratory test that shows how a person’s system is fighting to respond, to adapt, and to manage their greatest predisposition towards the physical, emotional, and nutritional stresses that are directly or indirectly responsible for their health conditions.

Organic Acids Test – OAT/Great Plains Laboratory this is my preferred OAT test in most situations as it checks oxalate levels which are often problematic in chronic health scenarios.   The other OAT related test that can be helpful are the ones from Genova – ION or NutrEval or Organix

DUTCH – This is a dried urine hormone test.  It also has some similar markers as an OAT however more focused on hormone

Drug-Induced Nutrient Deficiencies – Many prescription medications can deplete nutrients in our body.  This quick-reference guide can help you start a conversation with your provider to ensure you achieve the best health possible!
