You don’t know what you don’t know. You may not be experiencing symptoms yet but labs can catch the problem before you do. At Optimal Wellness Holistic Center, we offer both conventional AND functional medicine lab testing to help evaluate your state of health. Labs also help identify root causes of your health problem and confirm your diagnosis. Conventional labs look for specific disease. Functional medicine lab tests evaluate organ and system functions and assess imbalances before it becomes a “disease state”. We use lab testing along with a thorough patient intake, diet evalaution, body system assessment and physical exam to develop a custom health program to help you heal as quickly as possible.
Here is a list of some of the lab testing that we offer at Optimal Wellness Holistic Center:
Blood Panels: for blood sugar, lipids, comprehensive metabolic panel, complete thyroid panel, inflammatory markers, immune markers, liver enzymes, anemia panel, various nutrients like vitamin D, magnesium, B12, etc.
