What is Functional Testing?
Functional tests are used to assess how well the body’s systems are functioning. They enable your nutritionist to identify deficiencies or imbalances which may be contributing to your health issue. The test usually involves taking a saliva, breath, urine, hair or stool sample at home and is sent off for laboratory analysis.
Examples of when functional testing may be used:
Adrenal or thyroid hormone status
Sex hormone balance
Gut microflora overgrowth
Functional testing can speed up the consultation process as they can be very useful to get to the root of many underlying health conditions which may be delaying or preventing recovery.
Clients receive a full report of test results. Results analysis, interpretation and advice is then provided by your nutritionist at your consultation with a Nutritional Health plan to follow within 48 hours.
