Functional

Testing

Testing options

The advanced functional tests that I use in clinic are conducted by trusted laboratories. They are not available on the NHS or from most mainstream healthcare providers.

I never view the mind as a separate entity from the body, and functional testing enables me to evaluate any underlying imbalances and reveal potential root causes of your symptoms. I can then create a bespoke programme tailored to your specific needs in terms of diet, lifestyle, and supplements, helping you to get results faster.

Gut Health

functional test

The advanced stool test I use is the most comprehensive on the market which gives an accurate picture of your gastrointestinal health and provides actionable clinical data. Markers include bacteria (friendly and unfriendly), parasites, yeast, inflammation, immune function, digestion, and gut barrier health. The health of your digestive tract has a direct impact on your mood and numerous studies have linked a disturbance in gut bacteria population (dysbiosis) with depression and anxiety.

Aside from depression or anxiety, here are some of the symptoms which may lead me to recommend gut testing:

Constipation or diarrhoea

Bloating

Cramps or indigestion

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

Joint pain

Fatigue

Cravings

Weight gain

Migraines

IBS

Hormones

functional test

I use a world-class, accurate and sophisticated test to measure hormones. It provides a detailed insight into sex hormones, plus their metabolites, neurotransmitters, stress hormones and nutrient deficiencies. Unidentified hormone imbalances can have a direct and profound effect on your mental health.

Aside from depression or anxiety, here are some of the symptoms which may lead me to recommend hormone testing:

High blood pressure

Difficulty conceiving

Brain fog or impaired memory

Frequent colds or infections

Heavy/painful periods, endometriosis, fibroids, PMS

Fatigue

Hot flushes

Irritability

Palpitations

Insomnia

Weight gain

Healthy Food

Thyroid Health

functional test

Unidentified thyroid issues are common and can directly lead to many undesirable symptoms and conditions including poor mood regulation. The thyroid involves several different hormones, and it is important to test them all, including looking for signs of thyroid autoimmunity, frequently neglected in mainstream healthcare.

It is common to see clients who have already been tested by their Doctor and been told that they are ‘normal’, or they are on thyroid medication and still having symptoms.

Aside from depression or anxiety, here are some of the symptoms which may lead me to recommend thyroid testing:

Cold hands/feet

Difficulty losing weight

Constipation

High cholesterol

Joint pain

Thinning hair and/or poor nails

Fatigue

Dry skin

Brain fog

Memory loss

PMS

Low libido

Blood Panel

functional test

I use a comprehensive blood test which includes markers that look at Full Blood Count, liver and kidney health, inflammation, key vitamin and mineral status, diabetes, and cholesterol.  Imbalances in many of these areas can be linked to mood dysregulation.
