Nutritional Laboratory Testing
Functional laboratory testing may be recommended as a means to gain further understanding into nutritional status and/or biochemical imbalances.
Laboratory tests are done through internationally renowned laboratories such as Genova, Dr’s Data laboratory and Regenerus laboratories.
Functional testing helps to gain a more comprehensive understanding of how your body is currently functioning, and as a result allows us to design a more individualised therapeutic strategy. It allows us to accurately monitor progress and thus increasing the chance of success.
While testing increases the initial cost it often allows a more specific strategy to be designed and thus a quicker return to health and well being.
