The Cura clinic uses a variety of functional pathology tests to investigate biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormone status. The results provide essential information to assist with diagnosis, treatment and management of you.

Female Hormone Salivary test
The Female Hormone Profile monitors changes in hormone status over the course or part of the menstrual cycle, by measuring the sex hormones.

Saliva specimens are collected on specified days of the month, according to the nature of the investigation, e.g. a full cycle profile for a pre-menopausal woman or the luteal phase only in premenopausal or peri-menopausal women.

Hormone level test
The Baseline Hormone Profile provides valuable information on an individual’s hormonal status and the potential impact this may have on physical and emotional health. Hormonal imbalance may result in a symptom picture which includes weight gain, mood swings, night sweats, disturbed sleep pattern, loss of libido and hot flushes.

Urinary Elements test
The Comprehensive Urine Elements Profile (CUEP) assesses the urinary excretion of 15 nutrient elements and 20 toxic metals, acquired through either chronic or acute exposure. This is an ideal test for patients suspected of toxic metal exposure as well as potential nutrient deficiency.

Urinary Amino Acid profile
Amino Acids play a significant role in the body – and with deficiency comes all types of illnesses. Amino-acids are derived from proteins consumed in the diet.

The Amino Acid Analysis measures 38 amino acids to evaluate dietary protein adequacy, digestion, absorption, transport, metabolic impairments and nutritional deficits including essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

Essential Fatty acid report
An increasing amount of evidence indicates that Essential Fatty Acids can prevent a wide range of medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, asthma, arthritis, inflammation and even depression.

With all the attention being on a ‘low-fat’ diet,  some may wonder why ingesting plenty of ‘fatty acids’ can be a good thing. So are you getting enough of these beneficial fats?Or are you at risk of developing serious deficiency symptoms

CoQ10 level testing
Co-enzyme Q10 is a natural substance produced by the body that is known to enhance stamina, aid weight loss, combat cancer prevent and treat heart disease. This essential element is found in all living creatures, however aging and lifestyle factors can dramatically reduce the level of this crucial antioxidant. Are your CoQ10 levels adequate?
