In Naturopathy and Nutritional medicine, both general pathology and functional pathology tests are used. Functional pathology testing is useful in assessing the state of organ functioning, biochemical functioning and assessment, nutritional deficiencies or imbalances, metabolic and hormonal status.
The results provide essential information to assist the practitioner in the diagnosis, treatment and management of patients seeking a natural approach to health.
We have access to a large variety of tests and functional pathology. We have chosen to work closely with a number of laboratories around Australia and Internationally, to get the best, most accurate results for our clients at the most affordable cost.
functional pathology testing
Functional Pathology tests provide a tool for early intervention, management and monitoring of ongoing treatment efficacy. Some examples of functional pathology testing include:
Functional Liver Detoxification Profile
Food intolerance testing
Complete Digestive stool analysis
Adrenocortex stress profile
Extensive Neurotransmitter analysis
Hair mineral analysis
Saliva hormone testing
Hormone metabolite analysis
General pathology testing
General Pathology is the scientific study of any abnormality that is causing changes in the structure or function of body parts. We consider these changes and the significance of them to better manage your health.
