The Science of Metabolism & Energy
Nutrition is powerful. A few simple tweaks can make a big difference in your body's performance and how you feel.
The right amounts of vitamins and minerals are critical for a healthy metabolism, energy, and longevity.
The Know Your Numbers Program is a way to identify which key nutrients you may be missing to optimize your health. No two bodies are the same so this program allows you to completely personalize your nutrition and supplement program that fits your body's needs.
Why does this matter?
Nearly every cell in your body contains mitochondria, which are known as the "powerhouse" of your cells. You could think of your mitochondria as energy producing machines and when well oiled and efficient, they impact metabolism, brain performance, mood, energy, and nearly every aspect of health.
The lab test examines organic acids to assess how well your mitochondria are functioning in order to produce energy. Organic acids have been clinically used to evaluate nutrient needs and mitochondrial function.
Common indications for testing include:
Weight loss Resistance
Several diseases are associated with abnormal organic acid, amino acid, and fatty acid levels such as depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, neurocognitive decline, diabetes, and many others.
Note: this lab is not intended to diagnose or treat disease.

Wonder if you need supplements and don't want to waste time and money guessing
Feel like exercise and dieting requires a lot of effort with minimal results
Rely on caffeine for energy or you feel like you lost your 'spark'

How is this different from a routine check-up with my doctor?
Most doctors provide general panels to check for red flags that indicate a disease and need to manage an illness. These lab panels are designed to provide an in-depth look at how systems are performing to be able to optimize health and take preventative measures.
What if a marker is out of range? Will you Diagnose a disease?
When markers are out of range we strategically use food and supplements that are based in scientific information to support health outcomes. If anything looks concerning we will always recommend consulting with a doctor or health practitioner who is qualified to diagnose and manage a disease.
How does the collection process work?
We use a blood spot and urine at home lab test. This means we directly ship you the kit to your home and all you need to do is an easy finger prick and collect a urine sample and drop it in the mail. In 14 business days your results will come in and we will review them together in an in-depth consultation.
How is this different from labs I can buy online on my own?
Most direct to consumer labs use computer generated recommendations. While this makes it simple for the consumer to interpret, we believe that the human body is much more complex. Gina has years of extensive training in mastering functional blood chemistry to give you recommendations and results that are far superior than generic, auto-populated recommendations.
Why is the price so high when I can get some labs done with my doctor for free?
This program was developed because often people feel frustrated that the traditional healthcare model is not supporting their optimal health. Unfortunately, these labs are not covered by insurance as they do not diagnose a disease however, are well worth the investment to know what your body needs in order for it to perform at its best. When it comes to your health, we believe in not cutting corners and restricting access to your health but instead giving you every resource possible with intimate time and service like you have never experienced.
