Clinical Testing

Testing can be a really useful tool to help identify more clearly which areas to focus on, alongside other sources of information from your case history and symptoms.  I use a wide range of national and international laboratories that primarily work directly with practitioners. Many of these tests are not usually available in mainstream health settings.

I choose, arrange and interpret a wide range of tests (e.g. blood, stool, urine, saliva, hair) that can tell us more about how your body is functioning. For example, testing can tell us more about things like your digestive functions, hormones (including sex hormones, thyroid and stress), foods you may be sensitive to or where you may have deficiencies of certain nutrients. Listed below are examples of tests I commonly use.

Hormone Balance Test

DUTCH (DRIED URINE TEST FOR COMPREHENSIVE HORMONES)

This profile analyses over 35 different hormones to provide insights into conditions such as the menopause, PCOS, weight gain, fatigue, low libido, premenstrual syndrome, mood swings, sleep issues, mood disorders and prostate issues in men.

Adrenal Function Test

This profile helps detect any imbalances of the adrenal glands that are important for the output of our stress hormones such as cortisol.

Full Thyroid Test

This profile gives an in-depth picture of your thyroid health

DNA Testing

THYROID BALANCE, OESTROGEN BALANCE, NUTRIENT CORE, NERVOUS SYSTEM

These profiles detail our gene variants and provide information about how to best manage potential risks with nutrition and lifestyle

Comprehensive Stool Test

Stool testing provides us with a great deal of information about how our digestive system, the root of all health is functioning.

Food Sensitivity Testing

(also known as food intolerance testing)

This test identifies foods that our immune system is likely to be reacting to. It may be helpful for people with various symptoms/conditions such as IBS, eczema or arthritis. 

Coeliac Screen

This test screens for coeliac disease, a condition in which someone whose immune system is reacting to gluten-containing products.

Organic Acids

Measurement of organic acids can provide valuable information about nutrient status such as need for certain vitamins. It also provides information about neurotransmitters that have an effect on mood in addition to many other markers pertinent to energy and toxins. Testing may be particularly beneficial for people with mood disorders, chronic stress or fatigue. 

Vitamin D Test

Test for levels of the sunshine vitamin (actually a hormone) which plays a vital role in good health, including bone health, immunity, gut health, hormone health, nervous system and more!

Other Testing

Dependent on symptoms and circumstances, I may recommend other appropriate testing.
