with Erica Weiner
Listen to a short exerpt
On today’s episode, Erica unpacks her own journey with chronic illness (an autoimmune disease for over a decade) and how functional lab testing helped her discover her own personalized roadmap to healing naturally. For years, conventional medicine told her that “this was just how life was going to be” but Erica never stopped searching and finally found the answers she was looking for. In this episode, she’ll reveal what those answers were and one of her favorite health hacks of all time: Functional Lab Testing.
Functional lab testing does not diagnose disease. Instead it gives us sub-clinical (or pre-disease) data that helps us understand what’s going on in the body and how to rebalance ourselves BEFORE we reach a point where a doctor can diagnose disease.
Through functional lab testing, we can identify vitamin/mineral deficiencies, toxicities (such as mold, yeast, heavy metals, etc.) and imbalances (such as your hormones) and much more. Functional lab testing is an amazing tool, but you have to run them with someone who is trained to interpret them. Because they don’t diagnose disease, most conventional medicine doctors don’t use them or understand them. They are also typically not covered by insurance since they don’t diagnose disease.
