Functional Medicine Case Study (Part 4)

Functional Medicine Case Study (Part 4) 6452aaf4e14f0.jpeg

In the last 3 communications, I went over the following functional medicine tests:

  1. Intestinal Permeability test
  2. Hair mineral analysis test
  3. Gastric Acid test
  4. IgG Food Allergy test
  5. Expanded GI Panel

I began coaching my son at age 11 on healing his asthma, allergies and eczema.  At the time, he was on 5 different medications.

Now, at age 18, he is thriving and off all but one medication.  (By the way, I don’t recommend reducing or removing life-saving medications without the coordination of your health care provider… )


So I wanted to share his BEFORE/AFTER pics!  Sometimes as a health coach, I’m proud of the changes that a client makes on the outside, and sometimes it’s the changes on the inside that matter.  In my son’s case, it was the internal changes that mattered.  AND… We have the diagnostic tests to show it!


Check out the before and after tests below… Notice 3 things:

1.  The overall level of allergic response to ALL foods went down… This shows that his chronic, inflamed body responded well to the treatment.  Really well!

2.  Look at the levels that matter the most:

  • Egg allergy significantly down from “HIGH” to “NO REACTION“.
  • Dairy allergies down from “MODERATE” to “LOW
  • Wheat allergy down from “HIGH” to “MODERATE

(Interesting Note: Check out the pineapple allergy that developed! This was due to heavy supplementation of a key enzyme, bromelain, which we used.  Bromelain comes from pineapples.  So this result wasn’t shocking–anything you do with consistent frequency can become an allergy.  Hence the need for VARIETY in our diets)
3. We started the healing on August 15, 2007.  The final test was given September 5th, 2008.  Within 13 months we had shifted his health SIGNIFICANTLY!

(Before Test: Aug. 15 2007)



(After Test: Sep. 5 2008)


I hope you enjoyed this 4-part series and the exploration into the power of health coaching & what diagnostic testing can do to reveal hidden, root causes of an illness.

In my son’s case, my detective work paid off…

His asthma was a gut issue!
