Both conventional medicine and functional medicine doctors rely on laboratory test results to better understand what is going on inside the body. There are limits, of course, to what these tests reveal. Functional medicine digs deeper than many traditional tests.
At Revelation Wellness, we run several types of specialty lab testing to isolate the root cause of many chronic symptoms and conditions. The companies that perform these tests are nationwide; many test kits can be drop-shipped directly to your home. Below are some of the common lab tests we use, although more specific advanced testing is available.
Once we receive the results, we’ll work together to develop a health optimization plan that’s wholly personalized to your goals and lifestyle, not just what’s trending or conventional.
