Functional labs we offer through Next Level Nutrition

Patients with similar symptoms can have totally different test results and patients with similar test results can have totally different symptoms. . .Test, Don't Guess.  We all have biochemical individuality which means  - Everyone is different, so be specific to yourself in your nutrition and supplementation through scientific testing.

Maybe you feel great and want to keep it that way or you don't feel so great and want to find out why, either way lab tests are a great tool to help.  More importantly than just running labs is having someone to interpret the results.  Labs are like a chapter in your health text that really help us put together your story and contain a vast amount of information about the main character - YOU!  
Many health professionals are good at what they do, but reading and interpreting labs is not one of them.  We actually specialize in reading and interpreting labs and use them as a huge tool to design a healthy plan including an individualized protocol for you based on what's happening with you.  Each lab we offer is a useful tool that provides insight and not every situation calls for every lab.
Some of the below labs are helpful in specific situation and are not necessary for everyone.  Several of the labs are great for anyone and everyone as they provide information that can be used immediately in adjusting one's diet and supplement regimen to optimize health and overcome issues.  
The first 3 labs are Jrod's top picks.  Each lab has a brief description and you can click on the title to find out all the details.  We have access to even more tests, so don't hesitate to ask.  If you want to get started and don't know where to begin or have some health concerns the ORGANIC ACID test is your answer.  If you are looking for the biggest bang for your buck: DNA testing through 23andme is only $99 and the consult series is $450.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
 DNA Testing through 23andme- Find out what you are working with.  Just because you have inherited specific DNA does not mean your destiny is set.  This DNA test not only provides ancestral heritage information, shows reports on 240+ health conditions it provides information on thousands of SNP's which are variations in DNA.  These SNP's provide a roadmap for us to plan your trip to longevity and a healthy life.  
Think of it this way:  If you were planning a long road trip and could get your hands on an accurate map of all the accidents and road construction along the way you would be elated because you could jus avoid those things and have a smooth trip.  That is how the DNA information is used, it helps to avoid the accidents along the road of life.  The test can be ordered by clicking on the purple link above through 23andme & then we will schedule a series of consults to review the data.  The series is 6 sessions costing $450 and includes the 23andme app to organize and constantly update SNP data.

"I'm interested in having my mother get the MRT test.  Dale & I had ours done a couple of months ago after our son Tyler talked about it.  It's proved to be very interesting and I absolutely love the way I feel on my new eating plan.  I've already lost 17 lbs and feel amazing!  No more bloated feeling after eating or chest pains from GERD.  I don't feel fat and lazy after dinner anymore.  Dale has lost 11 lbs.  (he's not quite as strict with his diet as I am but he has to eat out every day and that makes it much harder."
