Functional Pathology & Testing
Prescribing based on your biochemical needs
We utilise functional pathology to test a range of hormone, metabolic, nutritional & gastrointestinal functional profiles to ensure the underlying cause of your health issues are accurately identified and managed.
Some of the functional testing we utilise:
Adrenal Hormone Profile Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA)
Full Blood Count
Essential Fatty Acid Testing
Food Sensitivity Profile
Functional Liver Detoxification Profile
Optimal Nutrition Evaluation
Salivary Hormone Profile (Covering all the major hormones for both men & women)
Thyroid Hormone Profile
Urinary Amino Acid Testing
And many other tests depending on your individual health needs
We utlise several screening tools in clinic, providing real time results.
This gives us an opportunity to educate the client about their health status.
These are highly useful and affordable tools that work alongside external pathology testing to give us the greatest understanding of a clients health needs.
Heavy Metal & Mineral Test ($140): Using a tool called spectrophotometer (oligoscan) we are able to measure the optical density of minerals, heavy metals and trace elements in the body.
We can design our treatment plan on balancing minerals & addressing heavy metals. No biopsy, blood or hair sample is needed. It is a quick, pain free test performed in a few minutes and can be used on children from two years old to adults. Results are in real time & this can be done with or without a consultation.
Microscopic Blood Screening ($100): Is a way of studying live whole blood cells under a dark field microscope. Observations are made on variations in the size, shape, ratios & fine structure of red cells, white cells, platelets and other structures in your blood. This is shown to the client via monitor, so they can see in real time the status of their blood.
It works as an effective compliance tool, as patient education and re-evaluation is used to motivate the client to achieve optimal health. This screening is used to look at:
B12 & Folate deficiencies.
Iridology & Iris Photography ($50): This is a traditional naturopathic screening tool. By photographing the eye we can see characteristics, such as patterns and colors, in specific zones that correlate to different areas of the body and can indicate areas of strength & weakness along with constitution.
We provide in-clinic testing in great value packages and as single services when required.
Functional pathology testing is at an additional charge
