Pathology Tests

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.
