Testing may be recommended to assist in providing additional nutritional and cellular function diagnostics to identify areas of under-function or deficiency.
In cases whereby a clear pathology with indicators is required, nutritional, biochemical functional laboratory testing is recommended. Nutripath is an Australian laboratory supporting natural medicine practitioners to better deliver evidence based treatment plans tailored to the individual.

One report provides a lifetime of knowledge!
A DNA swab is obtained during the initial consultation and sent away to be tested for genetic susceptibility to illness and/or identifying possible causes and/or triggers for your symptoms and/or disease.
Fitgenes provides useful genetic data to determine which biochemical processes are being impacted by single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and may be contributing to ill health.

Food Detective (In Clinic)
Food Intolerance Testing
The consumption of certain foods can have profound effects on the physical and mental health of some people. Intolerance to foods can be difficult to pin point as the body’s response may be delayed for up to 3-4 days and sometimes symptoms last for weeks.
Signs of possible intolerances:
Abdominal bloating, cramping, nausea, diarrhoea, constipation, rhinitis, headaches, tiredness, brain fog, mood and behavioural changes, eczema, hives.
What is it?
With a slight puncture to the finger, blood is drawn into a small tube and tested with solution against a range of common food antibodies. The test provides results within 45 minutes.
A report of findings and a treatment strategy is formulated with your practitioner over the coming months.
