    A word from Kaela

    Functional Wellness is about creating a seed of resiliency to help you withstand irritants and stressors. When we know the root cause of your illness we can create a stronger foundation of health and reverse chronic symptoms.

  • Adrenocortex Stress Profile

    Stress Hormone Test

    Type: Salivary test

    Cost: $320

    Turn-around time: 7 days

    Check for adrenal imbalances that affect: high blood pressure, memory, chronic pain, fatigue, depression, GI and heart disease, weight gain and nervous system diseases.

    • Collection: Four cortisol samples measured throughout the day give insight into the natural circadian diurnal cortisol rhythm to address specific daily stressors
    • DHEA is measured once in the 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM sample

    Adrenocortex Stress Profile is a noninvasive test that evaluates bioactive levels of the body’s important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA and serves as a critical tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances underlying a host of clinical conditions.


    Changing the amounts of cortisol and DHEA can profoundly affect energy levels, emotional states, resistance to disease and a general sense of well-being.



    with adrenal imbalance:

    High blood pressure

    Cardiovascular disease

    GI and immune issues

    Diabetes and metabolic syndrome


    Chronic fatigue

    Sleep issues

    Weight gain

    Persistent pain

    Nervous system diseases

    Memory and thinking issues

  • KBMO Testing

    Food Sensitivities Test

    Type: Blood spot test

    Cost: Fit 22, $165 | Fit 132, $350 | Fit 176, $470

    Turn-around time: 14 days

    Check for food sensitivities, inflammation, and leaky gut. Test IgG and Immune Complexes for Orange Foods, Orange and Green foods, or All foods on the list


    Watch the video to learn more

    The test measures both IgG and Immune Complexes, the most common food-related pathways in the body. This enables the FIT test to be able to identify, food sensitivities, inflammation, and leaky gut from a single test.


    Changing your diet to adjust for food sensitivities can impact: anxiety, depression, bloating, pain, weight loss, libido, fatigue, insomnia, and GI issues.

    Other issues brought on

    by food sensitivities:

    Stomach Pain

    Inability to lose weight


    Low libido



    Joint Pain



    Craving Sugar

  • Metabolomix

    Nutrition Panel

    Type: Urine test

    Cost: $620

    Turn-around time: 14 days

    The Metabolomix+ is a unique combination of nutritional tests that provides an analysis of key nutritional biomarkers to help your provider target nutritional therapies to meet your specific needs. The Metabolomix+ nutritional test is a non-invasive, patient-friendly way to assess the functional need for antioxidants, B vitamins, minerals, digestive support, fatty acids, and amino acids, and identifies markers for your microbiome, digestive support, vitamins, cellular energy, toxins, creatinine concentration, oxidative stress, and damage.

    1. Oxidative Stress: Caused by low antioxidant levels. Oxidative stress has been linked to several neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Multiple sclerosis, memory loss, and other age-related diseases.
    2. Mitochondrial Dysfunction: Mitochondria are the “powerhouse” of the cell.  Dysfunction of the Mitochondria can cause things such as muscle pain and weakness, autism, increased risk of infection, migraines, heart, liver, and kidney disease, and thyroid problems.
    3. Omega Imbalance: Omega imbalance has been linked to increased risk of inflammatory-related diseases such as asthma, eczema, and coronary heart disease.
    4. Toxic Exposure: Exposures to toxicants such as heavy metals, pesticides, and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are potential factors in the development of several chronic diseases and have also been associated with immune system dysfunction and increased inflammation.
    5. Methylation Imbalance: The Methylation process helps with cellular regeneration, detoxification, stress and histamine response, and antioxidant and neurotransmitter support.


    imbalance contributes to:


    Anxiety/Chronic Stress

    Heart Disease

    Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes


    Weight issues

    General dietary guidance




    Athletic performance

    Physical trauma/healing

  • SIBO Testing

    Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth

    Type: Breath test

    Cost: $420

    Turn-around time: 7 days

    Check for small intestine bacterial overgrowth that can manifest as: loss of appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, bloating, diarrhea, malnutrition, unintentional weight loss.


    Common causes are complications of abdominal surgery, structural problems around your small intestine, or certain medication conditions like: Crohn's, radiation enteritis, scleroderma, celiac disease, diabetes, IBS, IBD, Fibromyalgia, Obesity, and Parkinson's.

    In general, clinical management of the SIBO patient involves antimicrobial therapy, prokinetic agents, nutrient supplementation, dietary interventions, and treatment of comorbid conditions.


    Genova's SIBO profiles reflect the current state of scientific understanding related to SIBO breath testing and results interpretation – and are designed to optimize the management of the symptomatic patient.

    Risks and issues associated

    with SIBO:

    Poor absorption of fats, carbs and proteins

    Vitamin deficiency

    Weakened bones

    Kidney stones

    Gastric surgery

    Intestinal injury

    Crohn's disease


    Adhesions caused by surgery

  • GI Effects

    Gastrointestinal Health

    Type: Stool test

    Cost: $830

    Turn-around time: 17 days

    The GI Effects Stool Profiles are a suite of advanced stool tests that provide immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of gastrointestinal health.

    • Sample taken on day 1 and day 3

    Check 3 key functions of gut health – digestion/absorption, inflammation/immunology, and gut microbiome – to look for disease markers, biological response, bacteria, parasites and more.


    Why would I want to get this test done?

    The health of the entire body is dependent on a healthy gut and gut microbiome. Gut microbes are codependent with one another and with their human host, and the health of one affects the other. A sizeable volume of research associates an imbalanced gut microbiome with multiple disease states both within and outside of the GI tract.


    The diverse metabolic activities of the microbiome impact the human host, and the activities of the human host ultimately affect the health of their microbiome.

    Common symptoms of

    GI distress:




    Abdominal pain/cramps



    Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    Atopic dermatitis / Eczema


    Autoimmune disease

    Mood disorders

    Joint aches


    Weight issues
