Functional testing can provide a valuable insight into the underlying contributors to your current health status as well as tracking your progress during and after nutritional therapy protocols.
Depending on your symptoms, I may recommend certain functional tests to help enable a more targeted approach to your specific health concerns. Tests typically involve a blood test (pin prick), urine sample, saliva sample or stool sample. Many can be undertaken in the privacy of your own home, while some that require a larger blood sample can be taken at your nearest walk-in clinic.
Functional testing can help with:
Immune System function
Food allergies and intolerances
Assessing stress levels and energy
Levels of inflammation in the body
Digestion and gut function
I use a range of leading medical laboratories including Regenerus Laboratories, Biolab, Genova Diagnostics and Cambridge Nutritional Sciences (CNS). All test results will be provided with a clear interpretation during your consultation, together with realistic dietary and nutritional recommendations to support your health.
