The new textbook Laboratory Evaluations for Integrative and Functional Medicine by Bralley and Lord represents a major leap-forward in finding information on topics in functional and metabolic medicine, including diagnosis and management of very complex disorders seen in our offices every day.

“Humility is the primary requirement for the practice of Integrative Medicine. If you can supply that, then Richard Lord and Andy Bralley’s book will equip you with the second item in your tool kit – a compass and map for navigating the daunting landscape of biochemical individuality.”

– Sidney M. Baker, MD, Author of Autism: Effective Biomedical Treatments and Detoxification and Healing: The Key to Optimal Health

 “This book constitutes a welcome update, a reliable source for understanding test results and making individualized nutritional recommendations based on pattern analysis, rather than reference ranges alone. The expanded G.I. section adeptly addresses core issues affecting various health conditions. The authors offer a compact synthesis of invaluable research evidence with case examples that substantiate molecular nutrition in practice – a “must have” for integrative clinicians.”

– Susana A. Galle, PhD, MSCPpharm, ND, CCN, CCH, Director, The Body-Mind Center, Washington, DC, Georgetown U. Dept. of Pediatrics

“The new textbook Laboratory Evaluations for Integrative and Functional Medicine by Bralley and Lord represents a major leap-forward in finding information on topics in functional and metabolic medicine, including diagnosis and management of very complex disorders seen in our offices every day. As a clinician who manages complex multi-factorial conditions, and as an educator who has taught laboratory medicine for many years, I was very excited to learn that this book was being compiled. I was also honored to be asked to contribute to the chapter on gastrointestinal health. The final book is more impressive and useful than I ever imagined it could be. The graphics are outstanding and offer added understanding, making complex concepts come to life and gain clinical applicability. We will use this book at the University of Bridgeport in our Masters in Clinical Nutrition program going forward without any doubt.”

– Geir Flatabø, MD

“I had meant, long before this, to send my WOW! in response to the arrival of the beautiful new book!!!!  WOW! really seems to be the only word that’s necessary to cover my reaction.  My husband recently said, “Isn’t that book a little weird to have as bedtime reading?”  I just told him to be quiet and go to sleep…..And, I LOVE the CD.  No more fumbling back and forth from index to text!  What a great addition!”
