Functional Testing

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
