While traditional lab tests ordered by your GP or other practitioner may come back as ‘normal’, they are often far from optimal. Functional tests offer more nuanced analysis through a wider range of specialized tests. These tests are ordered from private labs and I can arrange these for you.
Tests that I recommend usually have samples collected by you at home which are then sent off for analysis.
Any functional testing with a private lab incurs an additional cost to your consultation.
While my approach is primarily food-based, I sometimes recommend nutritional supplements to provide the body with targeted nutrients in higher doses for therapeutic effects.
If I recommend supplements, I will specify the brand, dosage and length of time for which I want you to take them.
Supplements incur an additional cost to your consultation.
All health concerns are multi-faceted in nature and as such warrant a multi-pronged approach. If I feel that you would benefit from any expertise outside of my scope of practice to support you, I may refer you to other practitioners. This might include a recommendation for you to see another complementary therapist, your GP or another medical professional.
