Functional Laboratory Testing
I can offer an array of functional laboratory tests. In some instances screening tests can provide further insight into nutritional status and/or biochemical imbalances. In addition, genetic and nutritional testing can provide hints to optimise health and longevity.
Different laboratories are used for the different cellular biochemistry analyses, which may involve blood, saliva, urine and stool sample testing. Laboratory investigations are done through recognised medical laboratories, including Genova Diagnostics, Invivo Clinical, Regenerus Laboratories, Nordic Laboratories, Great Plains Laboratory, and The Doctor’s Laboratory (TDL).
Laboratory testing helps to gain a more comprehensive understanding of how your body functions, enabling a more targeted and individualised therapeutic protocol. Re-testing after your course of therapy is recommended to ensure the effectiveness of your protocol and to allow for continued adjustment of your maintenance protocol following your programme.
Tests are optional and are not included in the consultation price. Test results are usually obtained within 2 weeks, and the findings will be discussed during a follow up consultation.
Some Functional Laboratory Testing includes*:
Assessments of Nutrition Status
Adrenal Stress Profile
Allergy and Food Intolerance Testing
Digestive and Gut Function Analyses
Liver Function and Detoxification panels
*Note that although Functional Laboratory Testing is available internationally, some tests may be limited by local availability.
