Functional testing can provide an insight into any underlying conditions that are compromising health. The tests can be particularly helpful for directing the treatment plan e.g. a patient may feel they are suffering from candida overgrowth (candida is a strain of yeast living in our bowel). A stool test can provide a profile of the levels of all the microbes in the bowel thus identifying which need to be supported.
Functional tests can be provided in relation to:
- digestive health
- hormone balance
- vitamin & mineral status
- candida & intestinal bacteria levels
- food intolerances
