Elizabeth uses pathology and functional medicine testing to assess how a person’s body is performing. The root cause of any health complaint is specific to the individual and based on multiple factors such as genetics, diet, lifestyle, toxicity exposure, and psychological and physical stress.
Testing may be useful to understand the body as a whole and may help identify the cause of your health issues.
Some of the tests that may be utilised include but not limited too:
- Complete Digestive Stool Analysis
- Complete Thyroid Panel
- Hormone Testing including DUTCH test or Salivary Adrenocortex Stress Profile
- Urinary Pyrroles
- Organic Acids Test
Testing is ordered depending on a client’s health concern. It works not only to identify the root causes but can serve as a compliance tool for client motivation.
Tests are an additional charge to your consult fees.

DNA & Nutrigenomics Testing ($300):
Genetic profiling investigates genes involved in nutrient absorption and metabolism, our genetic ability to remove environmental chemicals and pollutants, as well as genetic susceptibility for chronic inflammation and oxidative stress. These are the underlying drivers of many health conditions. DNA testing is not about diagnosing a disease, but rather understanding genetic strengths and weaknesses. Once you have information about your genetic makeup, you can make the necessary changes through diet and lifestyle to support your genes. The test can help your current health situation and can be the key to preventing illness in the future. This is your ultimate anti-aging test.
