Embracing pathology and functional medicine testing enables me to truly understand an individual’s bodily function. The distinct root cause of any health issue is shaped by genetics, diet, lifestyle, exposure to toxins, and psychological and physical stress.

Functional medicine testing can help identify:

  • Deficiencies in essential nutrients (e.g. vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids)
  • An overabundance of harmful bacteria, heavy metals, and environmental toxins
  • Inefficient metabolic processes such as hormones, detox systems, or genes.

As well as gaining a thorough understanding of the body and pinpointing the underlying cause of your health concerns, functional medicine testing can also serve as a great compliance tool for motivation. 

Commonly used tests:

    Genetic profiling involves examining the genes responsible for nutrient absorption, metabolism, and our body’s ability to eliminate environmental toxins. It also helps identify genetic predispositions to chronic inflammation and oxidative stress, which contribute to many health conditions. While DNA testing doesn’t diagnose diseases, it reveals genetic strengths and weaknesses, enabling personalised dietary and lifestyle adjustments. This information offers insights into current health and plays a critical role in preventing future illnesses, making it an essential tool for proactive health management.
