Functional Medicine

Targeted blood testing. Professional, Scientific physician-grade nutritional supplements.

As part of our efforts to fully utilize West Jordan functional medicine, we order objective labs to know exactly how to customize a plan to get you back to not only feeling well but also being well too. We’ll choose between blood, saliva, urine, and stool labratory tests, based on the needs of the patient.

2. FIX IT:
Then we can prescribe scientific physician-grade nutritional supplements weaved into specific dietary guidance and lifestyle changes.

Labs we are contracted with:

Cyrex Labs

Did you know a permeable digestive tract lining – or “Leaky Gut” as it’s being described all over the internet these days – is a major cause of depression, constipation, bloatedness, and other digestive issues? Patients of mine often learn for the first time that Leaky gut is also a main component in autoimmune illnesses including M.S., Thyroid disorders, and a whole host of other conditions where the body’s immune system is mounting attack on its own bodily tissues.

Leaky Gut is the primary cause of Ataxia, a blanket term for all movement disorders that causes shakiness with muscle movement.

Dr. Salisbury goes through a detailed exam and thorough history to help identify the cause of your conditions. This, along with a detailed exam, will help him know which labs will be required. Our patients have been thrilled to finally know the nature of their conditions so they no longer have to rely on medications to mask the symptoms for the rest of their lives.

As an example, the blood test from Cyrex Labs will reveal what specific thing in your environment you are having a reaction to whether it be an allergy, intolerance, or sensitivity. For the first time you’ll know what is causing your autoimmune reactivity and which tissues of your body are being affected. A few of the available tests through Cryex labs are:

Array 2 – Intestinal Antigenic Permeability Screen
Array 3 – Wheat/Gluten Proteome Reactivity & Autoimmunity
Array 4 – Gluten-Associated Cross-Reactive Foods and Foods Sensitivity
Array 5 – Multiple Autoimmune Reactivity Screen
Array 6 – Diabetes Autoimmune Reactivity Screen
Array 7 – Neurological Autoimmune Reactivity Screen
Array 7X – Neurological Autoimmune Reactivity Screen – Expanded
Array 8 – Joint Autoimmune Reactivity Screen
Array 10 – Multiple Food Immune Reactivity Screen
Array 10-90 – Multiple Food Immune Reactivity Screen
Array 10-90X – Multiple Food Immune Reactivity Screen
Array 11 – Chemical Immune Reactivity Screen
Array 12 – Pathogen-Associated Immune Reactivity Screen

GI-MAP – DNA Stool Analysis

The GI-MAP stool test utilizes cutting edge, Quantitative PCR technology to provide a true DNA/PCR based stool test. This technology has high sensitivity, specificity and a rapid turnaround. The GI pathogens include bacteria, parasites and viruses.

Continuing with this platform of functional medicine in West Jordan, the GI-MAP measures opportunistic organisms, normal flora, fungi, parasites and antibiotic resistance genes. And the Plusrefers to immunologic markers for GI health and function including SIgA, Elastase, Calprotectin and Anti-gliadin testing.
