Functional labs


Sometimes, additional testing is an important part of our work together. These are the following labs that I offer:

functional lab testing

Pinpoint foods that are causing your body inflammation.

Food sensitivity

Learn more

Stool / gut panel

Learn more

hormones & adrenals

Learn more

blood chemistry

Assess your microbiome and digestive function.

Assess sex hormones, cortisol pattern, and DHEA production. 

Insight at the cellular level to track body's function to assess for imbalances, dysfunction, and nutrient imbalances.

Functional blood chemistry is often the first type of testing I look at with every client. By looking at blood chemistry, we can see the whole body. We're able to see everything at the cellular level to see what systems of the body are not working correctly. If the cells are not working correctly, it's impossible for the body to work properly nor be able to truly HEAL.

We can use blood chemistry to track the body's functions (and dysfunction), imbalances, and nutritional issues. Patterns within the bloodwork allow us to see the WHYs behind markers to allow us to support the body from a root-cause approach.

You suspect that food is causing your symptoms but you aren't sure what foods. You've tried food journaling or an elimination diet but just can't seem to figure out what it is. That's where the MRT and the LEAP protocol comes in. With the MRT food sensitivity testing, we can identify your trigger foods and chemicals, avoiding the guess work and freeing you from symptoms faster.

The MRT is a blood test that is used to measure your immune response to 170 different foods or food chemicals. 

Food Sensitivity Test

MRT / LEAP protocol

Joint pains


Headaches / Migraines

Eczema / Rosacea / Psoriasis

Constipation / Diarrhea / Bloating / GERD

Autoimmune disorders such as Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn's

Inflammation is at the root of many health concerns today and taking a dietary approach is the most fundamental way to approach healing from the inside out. Our gut comprises 70-80% of our immune system, which means everything we eat and drink will either nourish our bodies for health or pose a threat for inflammation. The MRT evaluates whether your body is truly reacting to a food and triggering an inflammatory response. The MRT is the most accurate food sensitivity test available identify foods, additives, and chemicals that are causing sensitivity reactions (we're talking 94.5% accuracy in sensitivity, and 91.7% in specificity).

The MRT is measuring the mediators that are released in response to sensitivity. These mediators include histamine, prostaglandins, cytokines, among others – all of which can have a negative impact on our physiology. It’s the presence of these mediators that become the actual cause of the symptom in the person. MRT quantifies all of these reactions rather than focusing on just one marker, such as IgG. Interestingly enough, some evidence shows that presence of IgG actually indicates a tolerance to that food, so simply testing IgG alone is not enough.

The Lifestyle Eating and Performance (LEAP) protocol is the follow-up step to your MRT test. This is what will help establish the ground work for moving forward, providing you with a plan specifically designed to lower your inflammation and support rebalancing of the gut.

food sensitivity testing

As Hippocrates stated, "all disease starts in the gut." When we talk about gut health, we're referring to the trillions of microorganisms living within us - including on our skin, within our oral cavity and in our intestines. The implications of the state of our health is pretty far-reaching too. Our microbiome has an effect on our mood, weight balance, risk for disease, immune system, 
inflammatory response, hormone balance, and more.

A stool panel allows us to assess the microorganisms in the GI tract as well as digestive capacity, taking a root-cause approach to optimize and strengthen our defenses.

Autoimmune disorders



Anxiety / Depression

Constipation / Diarrhea / Bloating / GERD

Brain fog

Hormone imbalances

Histamine intolerances

Gut infections

Stool / Gut Testing

Hormones can reveal tremendous insight about a woman's health. When out of balance, hormones can affect our mood, cycle, fertility, weight balance, and more. Salivary hormone testing measures at the 'free,' unbound, physiologically active form of the hormone to allows us to peak in to the delicate dance of the sex hormones. Adrenal testing assesses circadian rhythm of cortisol and DHEA to identify HPA-axis dysregulation.

Hormones and Andrenals


Irregular and/or heavy menstrual cycles

Weight gain / Difficulty losing weight


Is this right for me?

Low libido

Difficulty building muscle

Chronic fatigue

— Abby S.

I had seen a GI doctor and a nutritionist before, had blood work, had multiple tests, tried diets and medications and was unable to find out why I was having cramping and bloating daily. After having food sensitivity testing and a few months of work with Amy, I figured out what hurt my stomach. It is crazy the difference I’ve had in just a few months!
