ADVANCED PATHOLOGY AND FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE TESTING

You may be referred for laboratory functional medicine testing to obtain a detailed picture of your health. This includes nutritional deficiencies, toxicities, genetic predispositions, gut microbiome imbalances, hormonal imbalances and metabolic disorders.

Find how how your genes are affecting your body’s function.

Nutrigenomics is the study of how our genes and nutrients in our food interact. I use this genetic information to find more out about your health and then personalise your nutrition, lifestyle and supplement prescription to suit your genes.

Genetic testing profiles available:

  • Wellbeing bundle (all test panels)
  • Mood and cognition
  • Nutrigenomic
  • Detoxification
  • Hormones and fertility
  • Methylation- including the MTHFR gene

Identify:

  • Gut bacteria imbalances (microbiome)
  • Pathogenic parasites or bacteria
  • Gut permeability
  • Inflammatory bowel markers

We assess the function of genetic pathways to produce key neurotransmitters associated with mood. Neurotransmitter imbalances are associated with depression, anxiety and excessive stress. 

Are you tired or struggling to lose weight? Do you have an underactive or overactive thyroid?

Advanced thryoid testing is available to find the root cause of your thyroid problems and direct treatment protocols.

Do you find yourself wired but tired? Do you suffer to from fatigue? 

Assessment of your adrenal hormones such as cortisol can help understand your health condition and direct treatment protocols.

Imbalances in sex hormones for men and women can lead to a multitude of symptoms. Measurement of sex hormones is key to understanding your health condition.

Allergies can manifest themselves in a number of uncomfortable symptoms. Determine the foods and chemicals that you may be reacting to with targeted allergy testing.

Heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and mercury can block the function of enzymes and minerals within your body, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, illness and depression. Identifying heavy metal toxicities helps direct detoxification protocols to regain your health.

Simple and advanced blood tests are available to better understand your health.

I may also work with your GP to obtain blood, stool and urine tests with Medicare rebates.
