What is Functional Testing? 

In The Holland Clinic, Dr Holland uses a wide range of functional tests to assist patients in recognising fundamental issues that can support them as part of their custom fitted program.

Functional Testing by the Holland Clinic

Dr’s Data Test

One of the cornerstones of good health is the ability to digest and selectively absorb nutrients from our foods and drinks. Nutrients must be properly digested and then efficiently absorbed into the portal circulation in order to obtain benefits from consumed food. In the intestinal lumen will remain bacteria, smaller fiber molecules, and undigested foods. Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to issues with degenerative illnesses, compromised resistance status, and insufficiency caused by minerals, carbohydrates, fats, amino acids and vitamins.

DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones) Test

Most substantial profile of adrenal and sex to evaluate hormonal variation/imbalances

MTHFR (Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase) Gene Test

A main enzyme required to metabolize homocysteine is the MTHFR gene, referred to as Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase.

C677T is the most common mutation in the MTHFR gene. Those with two copies of this mutation are considered homozygotes (one inherited from their mother and one from their father). This happens in 5-10% of the population and these people are inclined to have high blood homocysteine levels when their diets have little folate.

In conjunction with the C677T mutation, a second mutation in the MTHFR gene, called A1298C, was also involved in high blood homocysteine levels.

High blood homocysteine levels are recognised as a risk factor for:

  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Obesity 
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Venous Thrombosis and Stroke

High blood homocysteine levels were also correlated with the following:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Depression and Other Mood Disorders
  • Neural Tube Defects
  • Repetitive Miscarriage
  • Stillbirths

Folate deficiency, lack of B12 and genetic mutations in the MTHFR gene are the primary causes of high homocysteine levels.

Organic Acids Test (OAT)

A detailed snapshot of a patient's overall health, with over 70 indicators, can be seen in the organic Acids Test (OAT). It gives the intestinal yeast and bacteria an accurate evaluation. These microorganisms may cause or decline an unusually high percentage of behavioral disorders, hyperactivity, motion, fatigue and immune function. Most people with these disorders also excrete many organic irregular acids in their urine. The cause of these high concentrations could include oral antibiotics, immune deficiencies, high sugar diets, procured diseases, and hereditary factors. 

  • Accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria
  • Identify correlations to multiple select disorders
  • Includes markers and oxalates
  • Over 70 markers
