Functional Laboratory Tests - discover the underlying causes to your symptoms

To work out what is the underlying cause of your symptoms, you need to go into partnership with your Nutritional Therapist. It is a detective process and if you work together, you'll make progress towards your health goals. Sometimes, progress can be made through your detailed health history, your Nutritional Therapists clinical experience and your own symptom monitoring as you make dietary and lifestyle changes. Sometimes, you need to dig deeper and this is where functional laboratory testing comes in.

  • How are Laboratory Tests Carried Out?

    Testing enables targeted nutritional therapy based on your results. Some tests may be available through your GP, others are accessed privately. Private testing will only be recommended after a full discussion with you during your nutritional therapy consultation. Prices vary and full details will be given prior to a decision being taken. Most tests can be conducted at home. Samples include stool, urine, saliva, blood spots and cheek swabs. Some tests require a full blood draw which must be carried out by a qualified phlebotomist.
