What is Functional Nutrition Therapy?

Functional nutrition, within chiropractic care, explores the intricate connection between the central nervous system (CNS) and the gut system. It is grounded in the concept that the brain-gut governs and harmonizes all bodily functions, emphasizing that disruptions or imbalances within the brain-gut relationship can manifest in a diverse array of health issues.

Our Approach to Functional Nutrition Therapy

We hold the belief that identifying and resolving the root cause of your condition is pivotal in assisting you to attain optimal health and wellness. In conjunction with a comprehensive neurological evaluation, we use a variety of laboratory tests to assess different aspects of your health and identify underlying imbalances or dysfunctions. The specific labs ordered can vary based on your unique concerns and symptoms. Some common types of labs include:

Comprehensive Blood Panels:
These panels assess various markers such as complete blood count (CBC), lipid profile, blood sugar levels, and liver function.

Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis:
This goes beyond standard blood tests, looking at functional ranges of markers to identify subtle imbalances that might not be apparent in traditional lab ranges.

Food Sensitivity Testing:
Tests like IgG antibody tests are used to identify potential food sensitivities that may contribute to inflammation or other health issues.

Gut Health Testing:
Stool tests are used to assess the health of the digestive system, including the microbiome, the presence of pathogens, and digestive enzyme levels.

Alzheimers-Associated Immune Reactivity Testing:
Blood test to identify patients at greater risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or other neurological disorder; to identify triggers of Alzheimer’s disease; to identify the early stage of neurodegenerative processes; and to monitor the effectiveness of modifications for Alzheimer’s disease management.

Genetic Testing:
Genetic testing is used to assess genetic predispositions and potential susceptibilities to certain health conditions.

Environmental Toxin Testing:
Testing for exposure to environmental toxins and heavy metals may be considered, especially if there is a suspicion of environmental factors affecting health.

​​​​​​​Nutrient and Micronutrient Testing:
This involves checking the levels of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to identify deficiencies or imbalances.

Hormone Panels:
Hormone testing may include assessments of thyroid hormones, sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone), adrenal hormones (cortisol), and others related to the endocrine system.
