Functional Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is the core principle behind Functional Medicine Assessment. Functional Medicine Testing tests beyond what is typically assessed at a routine doctor’s visit to understand the complete patient picture of health. Dr. Wills uses functional medicine testing to help identify any underlying biochemical imbalances that may be obstacles to proper functioning of the body.

Common Tests at Monterey Natural Wellness include:

  • Comprehensive Wellness Panels
  • Women’s Hormone Test Panel
  • Men’s Hormone Test Panel
  • Comprehensive Thyroid Testing
  • Autoimmune Testing Screen
  • Micronutrient Assessment
  • Food Allergy Testing
  • Food Sensitivity Testing
  • Heavy Metals Test
  • Comprehensive Stool & Digestive Analysis

Testing can often be performed on site at Monterey Natural Wellness, however, you may be asked to return if specific timing is required based on your history such as morning fasted, without medication, or during a particular phase in your menstrual cycle. Dr. Serrano will discuss testing recommendations at your New Patient Appointment and Follow Up Appointments.

Monterey Natural Wellness provides functional medicine for people who live or work in areas such as Carmel, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pacific Grove, Del Rey Oaks, Seaside, and Monterey Bay.
