Functional and Nutritional Testing
We offer a full range of nutritional and functional health tests which allows us to understand the true underlying cause of your health concerns or illness.
Why we use functional testing?
Functional testing helps to identify the imbalances at the root of your disease condition or ill health. The cause of poor health will be specific to each individual, and may result from multiple factors, including nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, toxicology, infection and numerous elements of disordered digestive function.
The results from testing allow us to be very specific and targeted in our approach to addressing your health concerns and returning you to a state of true health. They provide us with scientific data from which we can build a plan tailored to each clients individuality.
Testing that we offer includes;
- Full nutritional analysis (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids etc)
- Toxicity including heavy metal testing
- Digestive function analysis
- Food intolerance and allergy
- Organic acids testing
- Adrenal stress testing
Testing will typically involve the sampling of blood, saliva, urine or stools, and most can be conducted at home. In the case of blood sampling, where required you will be given the details of local blood draw clinics.
