Blood, Saliva and Stool Tests

Symptoms of ill health can often indicate a range of different possible conditions. Sometimes a clear diagnosis is only possible through the use of blood tests, urine or stool analysis. Saliva tests can also be useful.

Laboratory testing can be used to analyse endocrine (hormonal), gastrointestinal, metabolic, immune and nutritional factors. We work alongside experienced medical professionals and laboratories to offer a full range of tests that help to inform the treatment procedure. 

Tests include:

Adrenal Function (Cortisol, DHEA, Aldosterone, ACTH)
Thyroid Function (TSH, T4, T3, RT3) 
Fat Metabolism (Cholesterol, Triglycerides)
Comprehensive Stool Analysis (Bacteria, Yeast, Parasites)
Gastrointestinal Tract Function (Transit Time (ITT), Absorption)
Carbohydrate Intolerance (Lactose, Fructose, Glucose, Sucrose, Sorbitol)
Allergies (IgE mediated reactions - direct immune system involvement)
Food Intolerances/Sensitivities (non IgE mediated reactions)
Heavy Metal Levels ie mercury (an indicator of toxic overload) 
Vitamin and Mineral Levels ie magnesium, calcium, vitamin B, C, D
Fatty Acid Levels (AA, EPA, DHA)
C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP) Levels (a marker of systemic inflammation)
Comprehensive Metabolic Analysis (cellular energy production levels)
Heart & Autonomic Nervous System Analysis
Blood Counts (ie RBC, WBC, Haemoglobin, Platelets, Lymphocytes)
pH Levels (acid-alkaline balance)
Homocysteine Levels (cardio-vascular health marker)
Urinalysis (kidney and metabolic disorders)
