Testing instead of guessing micronutrient levels in the body is essential in order to assess nutrient deficiencies in the body.  If the person does not have adequate levels of vitamins and minerals metabolic pathways in the body do not function properly.  Over time this will lead into biochemical imbalances that create cellular damage and thus chronic health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and autoimmune disorders.
At Austin Functional Nutrition, clients have the option to order this type of testing that goes beyond the standard labs conventional medicine use, the advantage is having critical knowledge that allows for personalized nutrition supplementation protocols.
SpectraCell Functional Intracellular Nutrient Analysis
Although most individuals can benefit from nutritional evaluation, traditional testing is highly inaccuracy. A new technology developed by SpectraCell, however, provides far more reliable testing permitting  to more accurately evaluate vitamin, mineral, antioxidant, and essential fatty acid deficiencies and precisely target nutritional interventions.
Neuroscience Neurotransmitter Testing
Brain chemicals, known as hormones and neurotransmitters, control many of the body’s functions. These chemicals can become depleted or unbalanced due to diet, stress, exposure to toxins, and genetics. This can result in excessive stress, mood disorders, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, focusing, or remembering, sleep difficulty, headaches, fatigue, low energy, weight gain, and food cravings. Utilizing a non-invasive lab test developed by NeuroScience, a world leader in neurotransmitter assessment allows for accurate evaluation of neurotransmitter status.
MRT Food Sensitivity Test

MRT stands for Mediator Release Test. It is a type of sensitivity test that measures the activity of the immune system after a particular food is consumed. It gives us an accurate assessment whether a food is causing a reaction and to what degree our immune system is creating “mediators” to fight off these particles in our bodies. There are 150 foods and chemicals tested for which give a baseline for starting the LEAP diet.
