Total Thyroid Screen
(Venous blood sample) -looking at the complete range of thyroid hormones TSH, T3, T4, Ft4, Ft3, FT4:Ft3 ratio, rT3, and TG and TPO antibodies
Comprehensive Adrenal Profile
(Saliva collection samples) – assessing levels of cortisol and DHEA and the impact they may be having on stress levels, health, weight, thyroid function, mood etc.
Comprehensive Stool Analysis- Gut Function Testing
(Stool sample/s) – analysis of gut bacteria -beneficial and pathogenic, parasites, yeasts; indications of inflammation, digestive capabilities, gut immunity, intestinal permeability.
Not only used to evaluate gastro intestinal symptoms, but to provide insight into sources of ongoing ‘silent’ inflammation which affects everything in the body. This can manifest such as: depression and anxiety, joint or back pain, autoimmune conditions, eczema and psoriasis, allergies, etc., as well as the primary symptoms of bloating, cramping, constipation, or diarrhoea.
Evaluates the gut microbiome-the bacteria that live in the gut, influencing health in numerous ways. Understanding the basic composition of the gut bacteria can help address dysbiosis (imbalance) through a personalised plan and programme.
Allows understanding of oestrogen metabolism and enzymes of digestion and absorption
SIBO test (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
(Timed breath samples) – assessing levels of methane and hydrogen in the breath to indicate presence of SIBO
Organic Acids Test
(Urine sample) – a comprehensive view of nutrient status and requirements, detoxification and methylation capability, energy production, gut dysbiosis and indications of yeast overgrowth.
Aids understanding in whether your body is getting and using the nutrients needed for optimal health and function, so guides your personalised plan and programme to restore your body to its intended balance.
Especially helpful in the evaluation of the causes of fatigue, GI issues, difficulty losing weight, hormone balance and mood issues.
(Cheek swap sample) – looking at your genetic strengths and weaknesses, predisposition towards certain health conditions, genetic preference for certain foods and types of exercise
(Finger prick blood sample) – this vital nutrient is important for immune function, bone strength, brain health, metabolism and weight regulation, mood and energy and yet many of us in the UK are low in it.
(Venous blood or finger prick blood sample) – homocysteine is a much more accurate marker for risk of cardiovascular disease than cholesterol. Elevated levels of homocysteine also predict Alzheimer’s and dementia, diabetes, and other chronic and inflammatory conditions; yet is rarely tested for within conventional medicine.
