TESTING

I use specialised functional pathology assessments alongside routine general pathology, to help identify underlying causes and formulate personalised treatments.

Here are some of the key tests I use to correctly diagnose the problem in order to create a solution suited to you.

Functional Pathology Testing

Functional pathology investigates functional, biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormonal status, providing essential information for holistic diagnosis, early intervention, treatment efficacy, ongoing management and monitoring. Patients can perform most tests in their own home.

Functional Pathology Testing
  • Thyroid Profile: TSH; T4; T3; Reverse T3
  • Thyroid Antibodies
  • Thyroid: Urinary Iodine
  • Methylation (mood, detoxification, energy)
  • Digestive testing
  • Nutritional Profile: Vitamins, minerals, Amino Acids
  • Nutritional Profile: Hair Mineral Analysis
  • Nutritional Profile: Comprehensive Urine Elements Profile
  • Neurotransmitter Testing Profile
  • Methylation (mood, detoxification, energy)
  • Melatonin Profile (sleep)
  • MTHFR gene testing: tests your ability to metabolise folate (B9) critical for detoxification (liver), brain neurotransmitter synthesis (mood), cardiovascular and anti-inflammatory functions.
  • Pyrrole or ‘Mauve Factor’ Testing: High levels of Mauve Factor  (kryptopyroles or Pyrroles) are associated with vitamin B6 and zinc deficiencies and related to many conditions particularly mental health (anxiety), stress intolerance, reproductive and immunity issues.
  • Nutritional Profile: Vitamins, minerals, Amino Acids
  • Nutritional Profile: Hair Mineral Analysis
  • Nutritional Profile: Comprehensive Urine Elements Profile
  • Complete Digestive Stool Analysis
  • Functional Liver Detoxification Profile
  • Intestinal Permeability
  • Bacteria, Fungal and Parasite Testing
  • Secretory IgA
  • Coeliac Profile
  • Food Allergies: IgG; IgE, IgA Food Sensitivity Profiles
  • Methylation (mood, detoxification, energy)
  • Toxic Metals (Urine & Blood)
  • Adrenal Hormone Profile
  • Baseline Hormone Profiles – Male & Female
  • Baseline Plus Adrenal Hormone Profile
  • Female Hormone Profiles
  • 2 & 16 Urinary Oestrogen Metabolites
  • Melatonin Profile
  • Thyroid Profile: TSH; T4; T3; Reverse T3 (rT3)
  • Thyroid Antibodies
  • Thyroid: Urinary Iodine
  • Nutritional Profile: Amino Acids; Vitamins, Minerals & Antioxidant status
  • Toxic Metals (Urine & Blood)
  • Essential Fatty Acid Profile
  • Osteoporosis Risk Assessment (NTx)
  • Viral Antibodies: Epstein Barr, Herpes, varicella-zoster, Cytomegalovirus, Rotavirus, Hepatitis.
  • Parasite and Fungal Testing
  • Bacterial testing: Digestive Stool Analysis
  • Toxic Metals (Urine & Blood)
  • Food Allergies: IgG; IgE, IgA Food Sensitivity Profiles
  • Secretory IgA
  • Coeliac testing
  • Immunoglobulins

I analyse test results differently to conventional approaches. This enables me to identify subclinical nutritional deficiencies and under/over functioning of body systems responsible for health issues.
