What is Functional Testing

Despite advances in conventional medicine, many people are not feeling well. In fact, basic blood work may show that all markers are in range, yet, the person is experiencing daily symptoms and they may feel very unwell.

Over the past 18 years as a Functional Medicine Provider, I used various labs to help my patients get to the root cause of their symptoms and illness. I came to trust the functional lab tests that Vibrant America offers. Vibrant America’s mission is dedicated to bringing clinically relevant test at a rapid pace to enable affordable high-quality diagnostics to every individual. Now I am bringing these tests directly to you – so you may take control of your health and investigate the root cause of your symptoms.


Functional lab testing is different than the conventional testing that your doctor may order, because it helps to evaluate how well YOUR body is (or isn’t) functional on a spectrum of health, rather than just diagnosing disease.

Functional lab testing commonly involves:

  • Gut function analysis
  • Hormone testing
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Food sensitivity or allergy testing
  • Viral infections
  • Genetic tests
  • Nutrient deficiency testing
  • Metabolic markers
  • Environmental toxin load

Vibrant America is an innovative clinical lab that develops and utilizes new technology to provide clinically relevant tests at a rapid pace to enable affordable high-quality diagnostics. Vibrant America is at the forefront of modern medicine. Our technology was developed out of passion for better medicine, and we believe that automation is key to high-quality and accurate test results. Multiplexing tests on a single sample enables a fast turnaround time.
