Discovering the Secret Root Cause of Your Illness…

by Jordan Reasoner


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:

  1. Metametrix #2105 DNA/PCR Stool Test (Note: Now use Doctor’s Data Parasitoloty x3)
  2. Metametrix #0291 Organic Acids Urine Test
  3. BioHealth #205 Functional Adrenal Stress Profile Saliva Test
  4. BioHealth #401H GI Pathogen Screen Stool Test
  5. Dr. Kalish’s Mind Mapping Brain Chemistry Testing (Urine)
  6. 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…

wondering how this works with Crohns.


Jordan Reasoner May 21, 2013 at 3:13 pm

So far we’re having good success with our Crohn’s clients. In fact, the majority of our clients have either Crohn’s or Colitis.

I’d be happy to work with you Karen.



James May 21, 2013 at 3:01 pm


Do you order these tests directly from the labs, if so how? Or do you have your physician order these? Sometimes the lab will only do a test if you have a Dr’s order and only if the Dr’s office contacts them. Thanks.


Jordan Reasoner May 21, 2013 at 3:11 pm

Great question James, we can get you the tests directly. We have a partnership with a great Doctor to support us in doing that for our clients.

Hi I would love to book the one on one, but I just bought the troubleshooting videos
A month or so ago. I wanted to get the special last time it was offered bbut misses it by a day or to. Would it be possible to upgrade to the one on one by paying the difference?



Miruna June 19, 2013 at 10:12 am


I leave in Europe. Is it possible to do the tests you would advise me to do following a case review session? If not, what practionner in Europe do you recommand ?



Robert December 18, 2013 at 3:08 pm

Hi Jordan and Steve,

Was diagnosed with Crohn’s in 2006, but they said in July 2011 that i was most likely misdiagnosed for 20 years. Doctors would tell me i needed psychiatric help when i was younger because they said there was no way i could have anything wrong with me “I was too young”. I’m now on cimzia and methotrexate and feeling worse than ever. You mention that you help Crohn’s patients. i really need the help. I’m ordering the book today. Anything else you suggest. I have three kids so i need my life back!!!! Thanks – Robert
