Get detailed Naturopathic, Functional Blood Testing.

Advanced and detailed results for you.

When you go to a GP in Australia, testing is restricted to medicare funding. Only the basic tests are covered under the medicare bulk-billing program. Doctors cannot send patients for advanced testing unless there is a very specific reason or a pre-diagnosed condition. Furthermore, functional testing is rarely used because this explains the workings of your body, not pathological changed disease.

Since integrative medicine largely focuses on prevention, detecting disease early is better than waiting for disease to already establish.

Thankfully you can access thousands of functional pathology blood tests during a consultation. Once we establish in more detail what would help explain and identify your health issues, we can refer you for a huge range of detailed blood tests.

1. CONSULTATION

Understanding which test is the best for your condition. Breath testing, parasite testing, bacteria testing, occult blood? Your IBS might be caused from even nutrient toxicity. Let us use our experience to guide you.

2. REFERRAL

Once the right test is identified, we can refer you for it. We will also recommend diet changes, herbs and nutritionals to start making improvements. The results usually take around 2-3 weeks before a report is issued explaining your digestive function

3. COMPLETE

Complete your tests and start making your dietary changes, add some herbal medicine and start feeling improvements. Things should start to improve and we can monitor the progress while waiting for the results to return from the tests.

4. REVIEW

Almost there. Review test results which have been completed and related symptoms. Which herbal medicines specifically will help? Which key nutritionals will make the biggest improvements to your symptoms? What has changed in your test results?
