Lab Testing

Some health problems are easy to understand and treat, while others seem to make your healthcare provider play a guessing game. Broken arms obviously need setting and casting. Fatigue from lack of sleep needs a schedule and commitment to rest. Pain from tight muscles can be relieved by stretching or massage. In situations like these, the root cause of your pain is obvious, and the treatment plan is fairly straightforward. Unfortunately, not every ailment is so easy to treat or pinpoint what is wrong. That’s where lab testing comes in.

Diagnostic Lab Testing

Functional medicine providers commonly use specific lab tests to gain a better understanding of what is going on in your body’s ecosystem. Your body is complex, so different root causes may show up as symptoms that seem typical or irregular for that particular ailment. This is especially the case if one source of disease or dysfunction is interacting with another. The following list gives you an idea of the types of tests your Bion provider may run to get a clearer picture of what exactly is going on in your body, to help begin your journey toward better health.

Diagnostic Lab Tests

These are just a sample of the tests that we use at Bion Aesthetics and Med Spa. Lab tests give us specific information about your health, helping us partner with you to discover the true cause of your ill health. While many lab tests do not diagnose specific diseases, they do help us gain a better understanding of the entire ecosystem of your body. Knowing more about your micronutrient levels, reactions to stress, allergens, and gut health can help paint a picture of what is going on in your body. Each of these tests can aid the Bion provider in forming a care plan to heal the root of what ails you, allowing you to start living a healthier, fuller life.
