In the above picture, you’re looking at my annual re-testing regimen. It includes an array of the best quality blood testing, urine testing, saliva testing, and stool testing… OH MY!
In total, this year it came out to $2,057 worth of testing.
Here’s the breakdown of my annual re-testing regimen:
- Metametrix #2105 DNA/PCR Stool Test (Note: Now use Doctor’s Data Parasitoloty x3)
- Metametrix #0291 Organic Acids Urine Test
- BioHealth #205 Functional Adrenal Stress Profile Saliva Test
- BioHealth #401H GI Pathogen Screen Stool Test
- Dr. Kalish’s Mind Mapping Brain Chemistry Testing (Urine)
- A LabCorp Comprehensive Blood Test Panel
Why spend so much on testing… especially when I feel better than ever?
Because I’m committed to completely reversing my chronic illness, no matter what it takes… no matter what the cost.
I take my annual checkup very seriously. It’s how I monitor my healing journey. It’s how I make sure the problems I’ve already overcome aren’t rearing their ugly head again. And it’s how I learn even more from my Functional Medicine mentors about reversing chronic illness…
Not only that, but ultimately, it’s how I uncover the deeper root causes of my disease.
Because Overcoming Chronic Illness is Like Peeling Back the Layers of an Onion
(Yes, I know it’s cliché…)
But it’s true.
We’re all after the root cause of why we got sick – the smoking gun that will show us the answers.
But I believe most of us got here because multiple things combined to make us sick… and it can be a long, windey road to uncovering these multiple issues that caused the sickness.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned working with our 1-on-1 private clients, it’s that there’s rarely a definitive “smoking gun”…
For example, over the last 7 years I’ve peeled back the layers of my onion, getting deeper and deeper into uncovering what started it all (and it wasn’t just gluten).
If you’re just getting to know me, here’s a glimpse of a few of the layers I peeled back:
2007 – Celiac Disease Diagnosis
2009 – The Gluten-Free Diet isn’t working, but the Specific Carbohydrate Diet stops my Diarrhea in 7 days for the first time in 4 years.
2010 – SIBO, Low Stomach Acid, Poor Enzyme Production
2011 – The GI Parasite Strongyloides, MTFHR Gene Expression, Poor Glutathione Production
2012 – Stage 3 Adrenal Fatigue, Serotonin & Dopamine Insufficiency
Notice it started with the big stuff… like gluten and diet. But it got more and more refined each year.
As I peeled back each layer and treated it, I got better and better.
It was a predictable pattern…
I’d peel back a layer, treat it and get better, and then go, “ok, what’s next?” – and keep peeling.
With each layer, I’d discover something new, something hidden beneath all the other problems I couldn’t see before.
To give you another analogy, it’s like going up a set of stairs where you can only see the next step in front of you.
You take a step and the next stair appears. Then, you take that next step and another stair appears. Each step takes you closer to your destination, yet you have no idea how many steps it’s going to take before you get there.
Stairs or onions… either way it can be a long process to figure out the real reason you got sick.
And the Secret to Discovering the Root Cause of Your Illness is Test Results…
Test results are how I discovered each root cause of my illness, how I peeled back each layer of my onion… and how I continue to get healthier and healthier.
But, not just any tests, the secret sauce is in ordering the RIGHT tests.
You could throw money randomly at the wall and order a battery of tests costing $3,000-$8,000 like some of our 1-on-1 private clients have told us about. Or check into some of the world renowned clinics you’ve probably heard of for $10,000 to $20,000…
Alternatively, you can work with skilled practitioners, most of whom have battled back from their own sickness, to find out what the right tests are to peel back each layer.
That’s why, as Steve and I continued to explore the deeper root causes of our illness, we trained with the best Functional Medicine Practitioners in the world…
So we can help you find the right tests for you… and help you discover the root causes of your illness.
Not everyone needs a crazy re-testing regimen like I’m using now, and I’ll admit I’m OCD about measuring my progress…
