What is Metabolix?

With Metabolix we have found a way to become PROactive instead of REactive when it comes to your health. Metabolix doesn't treat based on your symptoms but instead finds the root cause of your body's nutrient deficiencies, toxicities and genetic susceptibilities. Metabolix tests and addresses the underlying problems at the cellular level. Utilizing at-home functional testing methods of blood, urine, stool, and/or saliva. This test provides a clear view of how your body functions and help to recognize broken pathways in the body.

Why Do We Test?

Identifying nutritional insufficiencies, toxicities and genetic susceptibility that may be the cause of your chronic condition is the reason why Metabolix was created. All health issues have a root cause and we want to identify them in their infancy!

Benefits Of Metabolix?

Metabolix is functional nutrition and toxicity testing that looks at blood, urine, stool and/or saliva samples to determine your specific nutrient and detoxification needs. These testing methods look at broken biomarkers in the body to find the underlying problems that can lead to problems such as, but not limited to:

  • Hormone Imbalances
  • Weight Loss Resistance
  • Cardiac Resistance
  • Sugar Metabolism
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Energy Loss

What Does It Address?

View Sample Report
  • Vitamin & Mineral Deficiencies
  • Blood Sugar Imbalance
  • Inflammation
  • Oxidative Stress
  • Toxicity And Heavy Metals
  • Gastrointestinal Stress
  • Stress Hormone Imbalance
  • Fatty Acid Imbalance
  • Amino Acid Profile
  • Genetic Risk Factors

How Is This Different From Traditional Medical Testing?

Metabolix nutritional testing measures 100's of areas in the body that are impacted by poor nutrition. Your results are presented in a personalized report so that your doctor can help create a plan specific to your needs. These tests identify subtle imbalances related to many common health issues that can be found before standard labs can detect them. Our tests allow insights on how nutrition and the environment are impacting your body. Testing can reveal toxic exposures and measure your body's ability to neutralize those toxins. Rather than treating your symptoms, optimizing key nutrients and minimizing exposure to harmful toxicants may actually help address the root cause of your ailments.

Is Metabolix
Right For Me?

Metabolix Testing can benefit anyone from patients with chronic health issues all the way to athletes looking to improve their performance. Anyone over the age of two years old can complete any of our Metabolix testing. We encourage all patients regardless of your current health to test and not guess!

    What our patients are saying about Metabolix

    For years I have struggled to lose weight despite my best efforts. I've been tested by GP's in the past and my bloodwork panels always came back "normal" and did not indicate any hormonal issues or anything that was believed to hinder me from losing weight. This frustrated me immensely.

    I sought help from a nutritionist to help ensure I was eating properly to lose weight; but after working with her for several months I had not lost any weight. I also worked with a personal trainer for a year, again no weight loss occurred (I did see some change in my overall body shape.) I was putting in the work but I just wasn't losing weight, I knew something just wasn't right inside my body.

    Fast forward several years, I had become a patient at Coastline and I kept hearing Dr. Keith speak about metabolic testing and how the Metabolix testing was different from the average blood work panels our Doctor's look at to determine health. I was hopeful this would uncover what was going on in my body.

    The test was easy to do at home, over three days I collected the different samples requested and scheduled a FedEx pickup from my house. Easier than going somewhere each day to give the samples needed. The test results uncovered several things that were happening in my body. Dr. Keith showed me the results and shared that I was experiencing weight loss resistance, which meant my cells were physically unable to be “unlocked," and my stored fat could not be utilized as energy. Also, my body was not absorbing nutrients properly causing me to experience many side effects, like constant fatigue, inflammation, headaches; the list of symptoms was long. It felt great to finally have someone tell me I wasn't crazy and that there were metabolic issues going on.

    Dr. Keith had a plan and a path forward to help me reverse these issues. My personalized protocol started with a 45-day detoxification diet (once I got over the hump of no sugar, it was the greatest thing ever and I have never felt better!) Supplements to support the areas I was missing and LOTS of water!

    Since beginning the recommended protocol for my specific issues, the fatigue I’d experienced for so long has disappeared. Inflammation in my body has reduced significantly. My digestion is improved, I no longer feel bloated, my blood sugar levels are stabilizing (sugar cravings greatly diminished), my sleep quality has improved. I'm working o

    ut 3-4 days a week because of the increased energy and most importantly I’m finally losing weight. Down 20lbs so far!

    The biggest thing I’ve learned through all this is that even with my best efforts, and trying to do everything correctly, I needed the guidance, knowledge and proper testing that I was missing. Having Dr. Keith in my corner not only for my chiropractic care but also my nutrition needs has been absolutely life changing.

    The Metabolix program has been life changing for me and I'm beyond thankful for Dr. Keith and everyone at Coastline Spine and Health Center!

    I'd like to tell you about my journey with the Metabolix process, but first you need to understand where I started.  I came to Coastline Family Chiropractic at 46 years old with lower back and neck pain.  As an avid hiker, kayaker and camper, that was a problem.  I'm also a colon cancer survivor who has experienced digestive issues compounded by my hypothyroidism and sleep apnea challenges.  My goals were to have less pain, be able to load and kayak on my own at 90 and live to at least 105.  Keeping up with the chiropractic treatment has eliminated my pain issues and become a part of my daily exercise routine.  However, my digestive issues have been a challenge for nearly two decades.

    Following multiple surgeries, I was officially in remission July of 2014.  Little did I know how brutal the after effects to come would be.  Solid food in general was difficult for my body to process without pain.  I started gaining weight, but not in a good way.  Six months later, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism; a common trait in my family.  Since then, I've had difficulty keeping excess weight off despite exercising regularly nearly everyday.  My solution was to just eat less food and exercise more.  So, a 600-800 calorie a day diet it was.  This did not really work.

    I attended a workshop dinner hosted by Coastline and listened to Dr. Keith Hurley explain healthy eating and living on a cellular level.  This resonated with me and I signed up for the Metabolix program.  The at home test kit is very precise and required me to pay attention to the instructions.  I read it twice before following the directions again to take the samples.  It was explained to me, my cells were not permeable and denying my body necessary nutrients.  I also had poisons in my body from eating bad foods and previous medical treatments.  I've been on the Metabolix protocol for nearly three months now and I feel great!  Dr. Keith called me every week for the first month to provide support and see how I was doing.  My waist is trimming down despite doubling my calorie intake.  I have more energy and sleep better. Best of all, I've come off my cholesterol, anti-spasm and anti-inflammatory medications.  I'm actually hungry and eating solid foods with no pain!

    I know there are no guarantees in life, but with the education and treatments I've received from Coastline Spine & Health Center, I'm confident I can live a long and active life kayaking beyond my 90s and living into my Centenarian years.  If you're not at least listening to what they have to offer, you're cheating yourself out of years of healthy and happy living.

    May God's Blessings be upon you,

    If your medical doctor/general practitioner hasn’t insisted that you have metabolic testing done before treating you, are they really trying to help you be your best self? Your healthiest self? The version of yourself that functions most optimally?

    I am 55 years old and my quality of life had deteriorated to the point that I thought I might be dying. I know that sounds dramatic, but if I am being honest, that is truly how I felt. My body was not functioning optimally at all, despite my efforts to fast, eat only organic food, and exercise daily. All I could do in a day was get up and go to the gym at 5:30am. That was it and I could barely do that. I could barely survive a work out. I thought maybe it was because I had 3 major surgeries in less than a year. That my body was exhausted from the hip and shoulder replacements I had in less than 12 months. I had zero energy. I could go to the gym, but that was it. I could hardly clean my house. I literally thought I was slowly dying and part of me felt so bad mentally and physically that I was ok with it. My quality of life on a scale of 1-10 was 0. ZERO!!!

    I knew there was testing that could help, but I wasn’t sure what, how, why, who, or when. I finally spoke to Dr. Keith Hurley about my concerns with my health and he suggested I do the metabolic testing offered through his office. I trust him implicitly and I took his advice and did it. I am not going to lie and say it came easy to me, as it didn’t. It is a relatively expensive test that I had to pay out of pocket. Let me be clear and say that I would pay the price over and over and over based on what the results were and how the deficiencies in my body were immediately addressed. I felt somewhat embarrassed at my results. I had worked hard to be healthy. Little did I know, that nothing, absolutely nothing in my body on a cellular level was doing what it was supposed to be doing. DID I MENTION NOTHING???!!!

    The day I started the protocol I immediately felt 10,000% better! The same day! From my own experience I would have no problem shouting from every roof top that metabolic testing is life changing and that everyone on the planet should know how their body is functioning on a cellular level. In my honest opinion, it should be a requirement for every patient and practitioner relationship. I mean, how can a medical professional treat you effectively without knowing? They can’t!

    As a collective society we need to understand how important it is to know what is happening inside of us and how our bodies are functioning on a cellular level. We need to acknowledge that just because insurance doesn’t pay for something, it doesn’t mean it’s not important or worthy. (Insurance not paying for it should actually be your first clue that you need it, as insurance is nothing more than a sick care policy.)

    Let me be the one to tell you that if you haven’t had the metabolic testing done, you need to stop what you are doing and get it done, because only then will you function optimally and begin to live the life you deserve to live. Metabolic testing is one of the most important tests you never knew you needed in your life until now. Trust me when I tell you that your cells will thank you!

    My husband and I invested in chiropractic care, Metabolix testing and protocol to try a more natural and effective approach to getting to the root cause of our health issues. I’m a 20 year Air Force retired vet and my husband was a law enforcement officer military and civilian, that is 100% VA rated. I’ve been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, MTHFR and anxiety.  The Metabolix Testing was game changer. It was interesting that even though my husband has more health issues, my results testing came back with more disruptions and deficiencies.  Just showing how much stress and anxiety plays into our health. Also the importance of testing to put the focus on causation vs symptoms.

    Since going through the protocol my husband has lost a pants size and is more purposeful sticking to a nutrient dense diet.  He now goes to the gym religiously, has a clearer mind, and his snoring at night is gone.  He wakes up more rested and less triggered by stressors in his life. The biggest change I’ve noticed the pressure in my neck from enlarged thyroid is gone.  I don’t feel the effect of Hashimoto’s and I’m moving closer towards healing from it vs getting worse to require medication. My anxiety is more regulated. I feel myself going into flight or fight mode less and feeling more in control of my emotions. In addition, I’m back to running a 12-minute mile which is something I couldn’t do prior to the protocol. My massage therapist could literally tell that my body was tighter and less inflamed after going through the protocol. I can also apply the diet and nutrition concepts to my boys, the two younger ones are among the top wrestlers in the State and our oldest is a Citadel cadet. Our hope was to stop the generational diseases that plague our families and optimize the performance of our children to reach their maximum potential. I believe going through the protocol we were able to do just that because you learn the building blocks to creating optimal health.  In addition to eliminating the toxins in our lives and filling our fridge and cabinets with the right foods and household items. I recommend the Metabolix testing to anyone looking to better their life.
