Lab Tests

Lab tests are used to measure body chemistries, assist in diagnosis and monitor efficacy of therapy. Conventional lab tests are blood tests a doctor would perform in a full blood exam(FBE) as a base line test.

Functional pathology tests are used to investigate functional, biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormonal status which may be causing your illness.

The results provide essential information to assist the practitioner in the diagnosis, treatment and management of patients seeking a holistic approach to health.

Most tests are designed so patients can collect specimens in the privacy of their own homes.

Functional Pathology testing provides a tool for early intervention, management and monitoring of ongoing treatment efficacy, especially when presenting with chronic unresolved symptoms and/or conditions.

An extensive range of tests are available, which include:

  • Genetic diagnostic testing
  • Gastrointestinal tract tests
  • Coeliac
  • Allergy/ food intolerance testing
  • Food sensitivity profile
  • Hormonal profile
  • Metabolic profile
  • Nutritional profile
  • Neurotransmitter tests
  • Cancer / CTC tests

Hear Vanita talk about functional Pathology testing for:

Indepth Testing for Mental Health

Mental health assessments is neuroscience which has the capacity to measure the metabolic blocks and subsequent nutrient depletions, generic abberations which contribute to mental health disturbances.

Test Biotoxin Exposure

If you are suffering eith a chronic illness like CFS, Fibromyalgia, MS, or suspecting mould exposure, you may have genetic weaknesses to toxins often derived from mould. They are called biotoxins which can make you feel really ill.

Test Cancer

Cancer assessments have advanced to not only identifying circulating tumour cells but also the prioritisation of appropriate chemotherapeutic or natural treatment options for your cancer cells.

Test Cardiovascular Health

Do high cholesterol levels automatically mean an increased heart attack risk? Approximately 50% of patients without heart attack have higher cholesterol levels and a considerable portion of heart attack patients have low cholesterol levels. Individual differences exist in particular with respect to the LDL levels and in the size distribution of the LDL particles.

Test Female Hormones

Hormones fluctuate through a woman's life. Assessing hormones are recommended for PMS, menopause, PCOS, infertility, lack of libido and weight gain.

Test for Allergy

Food allergies, intolerances and sensitivities are increasing with adulteration of foods, agricultural processes and processed food. The impact of grass, dust mite or animal allergy in eczema and asthma; food colours and preservatives; moulds can be identified with food allergies.

Test for Energy

Consumption of food is needed to produce energy in the form of ATP in the mitochondria. Understand the metabolic blocks responsible for production of energy by identifying organic acids involved in the citric acid cycle, and nutrient utilisation.

Test for Gluten

Gluten intolerance affects about 15% of people but the statistic is growing rapidly. Not all gluten intolerant people have coeliac disease.

Test for Heavy Metal Toxic Exposure

Exposure to heavy metals in our daily lives may affect moods, energy and lead to chronic illnesses.

Test for Insomnia

Having trouble getting off to sleep or staying asleep? Sleep is essential for restoration and repair of the body. Identify hormones necessary for inducing sleep and those needed for maintenance of sleep.

Test for Leaky Gut

Fell tired and toxic after eating? You may be have intestinal permeability problems.

Test for Liver Function

Does the liver need detoxing? If you feel toxic, tired, and sick, you may need to give the body a "spring clean".

Test for Lyme Disease

Tick borne diseases are increasingly seen in chronic autoimmune conditions.

Test for Stress

Feeling wired and tired? When you burn the candle at both ends, you may feel overwhelmed and exhausted.

Test Male Hormones

Erectile dysfunction? Grumpy? You may have hormonal imbalances.

Test Mental Health

Got the SAD's? Investigate the balance of happy and sad brain chemicals to establish the levels of neurotransmitters.

Test Methylation

Have a genetic mutation for MTHFR gene? Unravel the metabolic blocks in methylation cycles.

Test The Gut

Sore Tummy? Indigestion? IBS? Infection in the gut? Examine the travels through the gut from the time food enters the mouth to the time it leaves the body.

Test Thyroid

Feeling low and flat? Cold? You may have a thyroid imbalance.

Test Toxic Exposure

Sensitive to fumes or EMF? You may be reacting to toxic exposure and the body is unable to detoxify effectively.
