When appropriate, functional laboratory testing may be recommended. Laboratory testing may include stool, urine or saliva samples. Laboratory tests are done through UK and internationally renowned medical laboratories. Recommended functional tests are tailored to your needs based on your symptoms and goals. The tests are sent to your door which are completed and sent back to the laboratory using prepaid envelopes. Costs for laboratory tests are additional and can be discussed during the consultation. There is no obligation to undertake tests.
Why is Functional Testing important?
Laboratory testing takes out the guesswork and assists in addressing the root cause of your symptoms and provides a greater understanding of any underlying condition. That enhances the recovery process by allowing a more targeted approach.
Functional tests provide information about metabolic, nutritional, detoxification status as well as details on hormonal, endocrine, gastrointestinal, and immune function. Knowing more about your hormone levels, reactions to stress, allergens, and gut health allows us to see a bigger picture of what is going on in your body and where there may be a dysregulation or dysfunction long before disease develops. That provides an opportunity to take preventative measures.
