Functional Medicine, rather than targeting individual symptoms, focuses on the optimal functioning of the entire body and its organs. It addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach in partnership with understanding the conditions and history in which the disease manifested. Genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors all have a direct influence of long-term health and chronic health issues.
Food creates chemical reactions by producing nutrients. Nutrients feed our cells, balancing our health. Nutritional Therapy is part of medical care based on nutritional science. The goal is to use the proper foods to promote health to the highest performance possible. There is no one-size-fits-all nutritional plan! It is always personalized, based on the individual lab results, family or medical history, diet, lifestyle, current health condition, diagnosis and treatment, etc. Nutritional Therapy is addressing the underlying causes, balancing any nutritional deficiencies or excesses to support the individuals for optimal health.
Most Nutritional Therapy plans are based on real foods and food supplements. The individual owns the program and is fully responsible for applying the suggested protocols. This is NOT the prescribed passive pill approach!
Chen Ben-Asher’s Method is a functional medicine, lab based health approach focused on addressing five common conditions – weight gain, fatigue, inflammation, female hormones and digestive problems – through restoring the 3 main bodily systems: hormones, digestion and liver detoxification.
Results vary by each person. Some people feel dramatic improvement within the first month, others may take a bit longer. Our standard programs are for a minimum of 6 months. Remember, your body didn’t fail overnight. Years of stress and illness takes its toll so it takes a proper amount of time to restore vitality. On average, it takes one month of repair for each year you’ve suffered from a specific problem.
Chen Ben-Asher’s Method addresses the 5 most chronic symptoms of weight gain, fatigue, inflammation (food sensitivity), hormone imbalances and digestive problems that are typically misunderstood or misdiagnosed by conventional medicine practitioners who attempt to address the symptoms instead of the root cause/damaged system. Chen Ben-Asher’s Method is a lab-based health protocol that tests and identifies the dysfunction of the 3 core body systems. Typically, these 3 main systems have become compromised long BEFORE the symptoms appeared. The lab tests are used to determine the required natural support needed to re-balance your body back to its normal state.
The body system’s inflammation biomarkers show up YEARS before diagnosis.
This is your OPPORTUNITY to reduce inflammation biomarkers so you don’t get sick!
Chen Ben-Asher’s Balanced Diet protocol has been tested and proven within 6 years of clinical experience by over 1200 clients.

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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.

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.
It is always best to get anything you consume from a trusted source!
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.
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).
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!
