Functional testing tells us how your body is working at a biochemical level and helps to inform the development of a targeted and personalised approach. Your tests will be explained and and how test results can be translated into specific dietary or lifestyle recommendations
Tests come from selected medical laboratories, including:
Food Allergy testing
Gut health and microbiome assessment
Breath testing which measures levels of methane and hydrogen gas in the breath at intervals over a 3 hour period after consumption of a carbohydrate provides information about the numbers, location and types of certain bacteria in the gut.
This type of testing helps to guide protocols that by addressing the root cause of the problem may provide longer lasting resolution to gastrointestinal issues, and may also avoid the need for unnecessary elimination diets.
Testing is generally recommended in conjunction with a clinical assessment. If you are interested in testing or have a test that you would like to do, schedule a free call with me to discuss it.
