“We don’t guess, we test,” says New Life Chiropractic’s Clinic Director, Dr. Tim Smith. “Every patient is different, so it’s our responsibility as Doctors to personalize care to fit the specific needs of each patient.”

It is within these values that have led MaxLiving to launch the new standard for health care – MaxLiving Life-Risk Questionnaire (LRQ) and Max Metabolix.

MaxLiving LRQ is an introductory questionnaire that evaluates a patient’s overall health based on personal lifestyle habits. The LRQ develops its results into 5 categories based on the 5 Essentials®:

  • Core Chiropractic
  • Nutrition
  • Mindset
  • Oxygen & Exercise
  • Minimize Toxins

These scoring categories create measurable results that give the MaxLiving Doctor and team a strong foundation to build a personalized patient care process. Once this process is in place, that is when healing, growth, and vitality begins.

Max Metabolix

Max metabolix logo

Max Metabolix is a series of clinical laboratory tests for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic health issues. These tests identify the biological markers of a person’s current health through simple bodily samples such as urine, blood, etc. Max Metabolix results can pinpoint the exact deficiencies and elevated levels of each biomarker.

We don’t guess, we test…

Max Metabolix removes any opinions, estimates, or theories by utilizing state of the art laboratory equipment to develop accurate results. This makes it possible to target and prioritize your specific health needs.

After generating the results, the tests are measured by the trained MaxLiving Doctor and reviewed with the patient. This allows the opportunity to create a step-by-step, individualized plan to reach optimal health.

Max Metabolix can be a humbling and valuable experience for even the most active person. Take this opportunity to identify your internal health needs by speaking with a MaxLiving Doctor today!

We offer a variety of different tests in MaxMetabolix! Our two most popular tests are Metabolomix and GI Effects.


Metabolomix is a test which assesses nutrient deficiencies, fatty acid imbalances, oxidative stress markers, and more.

GI Effects

GI Effects provides a comprehensive overview of your gastrointestinal health, analyzing markers of dysbiosis (gut bacteria imbalances), inflammation, infection and more.

How do I know which test is right for me?

We will ask you specific questions to determine which test is right for you! Based on your Lifestyle Risk Questionnaire we will provide test recommendations based on your subjective lifestyle risk

How is this different from traditional medical testing?

MaxMetabolix 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.

Do I need to go to a lab to be tested?

The tests offered in MaxMetabolix are in-home, self-administered tests that do not need to be done in a laboratory setting.

BiomeFx lab testingStool testing has become a popular method for evaluating the status of an individuals’ microbiome. The problem is that many of these tests are often lacking in accuracy, reliability, and functionality. BiomeFx not only uses the most advanced and accurate sequencing technology, but it also explores some of the many inner functions of the gut microbiome.

This test will explore the pathogens in your gut as well as the keystone species that are crucial to overall health and the metabolic functions that rely on the gut microbiome.

With these insights, you can then use the actionable nutrition, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations as a road map for improving your unique gut microbiome. This is the future of microbiome assessment and analysis.
