WHAT TYPES OF LAB TESTS ARE REQUIRED?
WHAT LABORATORIES DOES DR. JUSTIN USE AND WHY?
Chen Ben-Asher has learned over many years that the accuracy of your lab findings and the quality of the professionals performing the lab tests is the key to you uncovering what’s going on. Quality is not equal across all lab companies. Many times we see “normal” test results from regular lab companies and our lab tests find many “functional” problems. The lab companies used by Chen Ben-Asher have the highest testing standards and the most consistent lab results year after year. These are not replacements for regular medical tests, these tests are only used to detect “functional” issues rather than medical problems and aren’t meant to diagnose or recommend protocols for diseases. We are attempting to detect problems with the functioning of organ systems prior to the onset of a disease.
CAN I ORDER MY OWN TEST KITS THROUGH THE LABORATORIES OR CAN MY REGULAR DOCTOR ORDER THE LAB TEST FOR ME?
Our authorized laboratories are only able to sell test kits to licensed practitioners. Chen Ben Asher uses specific lab tests from small lab companies that exclusively offer functional medicine tests. Larger national labs and local hospital based labs are not helpful for these types of highly specialized tests
HOW ARE THESE LABS DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL LABS?
Mor’s Nutrition and More offers laboratory testing as part of your evaluation process. Using a holistic systems-oriented approach, these tests will support addressing the underlying causes of your body symptoms as a whole person.
These tests are used to check your nutritional status, digestive function, hormone levels, food sensitivities and detoxification abilities. Environmental and lifestyle factors influence your health. These are cutting edge evaluations that generally are not available through conventional laboratories.
Being proactive and assessing patterns of imbalances, that, if left without intervention, will end up yielding chronic disease is the true power of functional medicine lab testing.
ARE THE LAB TEST THE ONLY METHOD USED FOR THE EVALUATION PROCESS?
The proposed tests are essential part of the evaluation process. The test results will be integrated with relevant filled questionnaires, your medical history, medications and supplementations taken (prior to the proposed nutritional plan). The collected data will support Chen Ben Asher to personalized your nutritional and lifestyle protocols to achieve better health.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE LAB RESULTS ?
The results of your lab test(s) will be sent to Chen Ben Asher 10 to 25 working days after mailing your specimens to the lab. After evaluation we will contact you to schedule a follow up appointment to review your results with Chen Ben Asher and she will recommend a nutritional wellness protocol
HOW MANY LABS ARE REQUIRED PER PERSON?
There is no one-size-fits-all nutritional plan! The number of labs recommended will depend on your individual situation including the number of issues you struggle with and the length of time you have been experiencing them, however, the range is 1-4 lab tests.
HOW MUCH DO TO THE LAB TESTS COST?
Depending on the lab test, the cost is $150-600 per lab kit and you can always start a program just by ordering a single test.

WILL I NEED TO RETEST?
While retesting isn’t required, it is recommended that a client retest at the 6 months mark to measure improvements and adjust protocols if needed. Once a client has achieved their desired health results, we recommend annual testing to ensure your body systems continue functioning at their best.
WHY BUY SUPPLEMENTS FROM AN AUTHORIZED HEALTHCARE PROVIDER?
It is always best to get anything you consume from a trusted source!
CAN I PURCHASE SUPPLEMENTS OTHER THAN FROM MOR′S NUTRITIONS AND MORE?
Mor’s Nutrition & More carries its own line of high quality supplements which have been formulated to achieve the best results in the right specified dosages. Mor’s Nutrition & More supplements are the only ones used under any purchased nutritional program. If you want to do your own research on different supplements, we welcome you to do so, but we do not provide any other recommendations nor advise on other specific blends or brands. If you purchase other supplements from other manufacturers, please research carefully. Not all ingredients are equal. Results may be different.
HOW WILL THESE SUPPLEMENTS SUPPORT MY WELLNESS PLAN?
These supplements are natural, plant based products that support and balance you nutritionally. Most individuals are not nutritionally balanced. Therefore they are in need of support. Supplements combined with customized wellness plans based on your lab results are the way to restoring the balance!
HOW LONG ARE THE PROGRAMS THAT CHEN BEN ASHER RECOMMENDS?
Initial programs range anywhere from 4-6 months, depending on the degree of your health condition. Using nutritional therapy requires dietary and lifestyle changes as well as time (minimum 4 months).
