Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is patient-centered medical healing at its best. Instead of looking at and treating health problems as isolated diseases, it treats individuals who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances and dysfunctions.

Be sure to check out our What is Functional Medicine? handout and watch this video explaining functional medicine. There is functional medicine testing for almost every health condition. Some of our frequently used tests include:

FoodSafe Allergy Test™ requires only a small amount of blood to testing for 95 food antigens. The finger is pricked then drops of blood are placed on a blood spot collection card. Foods are reported back as low reaction, moderate reaction, or to be avoided.

Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis is useful for just about any digestive disorder to find the root cause of your symptoms, including bacterial overgrowth, parasites, fungus (candida), inflammation and dysbiosis.

Celiac and Gluten Sensitivity Blood Spot testing determines if a patient has celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity. Research continues to show that gluten can wreak havoc on your body.

Hepatic Detoxification Profile determines toxicity levels throughout your body and how well your liver is able to process the toxins that are present. High levels of toxicity in the body can cause a host of health problems.

Your first step is to complete the functional medicine symptom survey then schedule a consultation with Dr. Kyle to review your health history and learn which functional medicine tests would be most beneficial for you. The cost for these consultations is $100 for one hour or $50 for 30 minutes. In general, most adults need one-hour consultations. The 30-minute consultations are more appropriate for patients age 18 and under. Consultations are not covered by insurance and will not be billed.
