Testing

Testing helps us find the root cause
When We Discover How Your Body Functions, We’ll Know How to Treat It

Your body has a unique way of absorbing, assimilating and integrating everything around you. This includes the air you breathe, the food you eat, the information you process and the way you navigate and solve your life’s problems. As a multicultural country, we are also aware that people have a genetic makeup that goes back thousands of years in other counties and cultures. We treat each person as an individual with unique requirements to resolve current health conditions, and for ongoing health and wellbeing.

 

When we first meet you, we conduct a thorough and comprehensive case history to determine if and what type of testing is needed. If we choose to do testing, we’ll evaluate which tests will give us the most amount of accurate and relevant information. Some of the testing available is expensive and so it is not chosen lightly or without a thorough conversation with you.We use a selected range of tests to assess the underlying symptoms and determine their root cause.

 

Testing helps us piece together a precise roadmap of the issues going on in the body that have contributed to the health condition. It shows us what needs to be addressed to bring the body back into a state of health and gives you a precise course of action for treatment that is specific to your health issue. In the short term your health will return more quickly. In the long term this course of action will end up saving a lot of pain, frustration, time and money.

Types of Testing

Pathology Testing (Blood Testing)

Pathology testing (blood testing) from a Naturopathic viewpoint is used to track key
biomarkers in your blood before they become a health issue. The values we look for are
optimal levels which are different to the standard GP’s reference range.
This approach to monitoring helps us identify what’s required to maintain your key
biomarkers at optimal normal levels. We want your body to operate as healthily as
possible, and this strategy helps to prevent future health conditions and disease.

Functional Testing

Functional testing delves deeper into the functions of the systems on the body, taking into
account nutritional deficiencies, genetic tendencies, toxicity and more. This type of testing
provides a clearer overall picture focusing on physiological function and identifying how the
body’s biological and biochemical processes are working as a whole and together.

Some pathology and functional testing are essential in order to draw a clear picture of
health conditions. With this information, we’ll be in a better position to address your
specific requirements and to re-establish equilibrium using nutritional and lifestyle
intervention or other required treatments.

Live Blood Microscopy

Viewing your blood cells live in their environment gives us vital information that can be
missed during ordinary pathology testing. Live blood microscopy, phase contrast and
coagulated blood microscopy are the study of the components of the blood under a
microscope.

Your “live” blood is the ideal medium to gain immediate insight into your overall health
status. We look for various indicators to give us information about liver stress,
inflammation, immune suppression, digestive problems, nutrient deficiencies, toxicity and
more.

Iridology

Iridology is the study of health and wellbeing through the examination of the iris of the
eye. Just like a fingerprint, every iris is unique and is used in security checks for personal
identification (biometrics).

The colour, structure, sclera and the pupil have a reflex connection to every organ and
tissue in the body through the nervous system. We use this reliable form of information to
gain insight into predisposing factors and to form an overall picture of your health. We’ll
have a better understanding about what’s required for your body to achieve equilibrium
and balance.
