Functional Testing

Why Use Functional Testing?      

Functional testing is a fantastic tool in getting to the root cause of any health issue and can result in a much faster resolution.

Often when someone is feeling unwell they will have GP blood tests and are told that everyhing is 'normal'. Normal reference ranges have more to do with statistics than health so we often need to dig a bit deeper.

I work with a number of leading laboratories to offer a wide range of health tests and continually research and study the wide range of new and available testing.


Within a 1:1 consultation we will discuss if any functional testing will be helpful for you. Testing is only recommended when we're clear that it will clearly inform us and make a difference


Everyone is unique, so test recommendations will differ for everyone and for some testing is neither helpful nor needed


If we do decide to use functional testing,  I will fully explain & interpret the results for you, provide you with an interpretation summary and build into your plan


Microbiome testing (stool, oral & vaginal), blood testing, urine and hair testing are all available
