General and functional pathology testing is an invaluable tool when trying to determine the causes of disharmony and disease. Testing can aid in the development of more precise treatment plans, and is often used to assess the progress of treatment. Certain assessments, particularly genetic testing play an important role in preventative health. Our genetic code highlights our 'weak links'. This is invaluable information for practitioners when strategising effective, client-specific wellness plans.
Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis- A detailed look into your digestive function and overall gut health. Useful for conditions and symptoms such as IBS, Inflammatory bowel disease, abdominal pain and cramping, diarrhoea, constipation, flatulence, reflux, indigestion, nausea, loss of appetite, and stomach ulcers. Helpful for the detection of bacteria, parasites, yeasts (eg. candida), and specifics such as Helicobacter pylori.
Intestinal Permeability Changes in intestinal permeability are associated with poor gut health and conditions including autism, autoimmune disorders, food sensitivities and inflammatory bowel disease. The ‘leaky gut’ causes disease due to a disturbed intestinal barrier allowing unwanted molecules to enter the bloodstream.
DNA Microbiome Testing A detailed genetic analysis of the microbial environment in your gut. Invaluable information to assist in the development of an effective gut healing approach tailored for you.
Hormone Testing A reliable assessment of your hormone health. Tests are tailored to suit your individual needs eg. reproductive hormones, thyroid hormones, stress and adrenal hormones. In the face of hormone-related symptoms or thyroid abnormalities, there will never be just one hormone unbalanced, or one hormone system 'out of whack'. The reason for this is that our hormone systems work together. They need to be in harmony and balance for optimal health.
Mood, Stress and Behaviour Detailed assessments into specific nervous system functions including neurotransmitter profiles, metabolic pathway function, histamine metabolism, and specific gene testing eg. MTHFR
Food allergy and Intolerance testing
Environmental Allergens eg. moulds and chemicals
Heavy Metal Analysis An accurate measure of nutrient and toxic metal content in the body. Minerals and heavy metals can accumulate over long periods of time. Heavy metals toxicity can be caused by exposure to pollution, chemicals and poisons. It is a growing threat to the population as metals deposit in body tissues leading to significant developmental and neurological damage.
