Specialised Medical Testing

At Total Healthcare Naturally, we strongly believe that appropriate testing (blood, urine, saliva and stool) is crucial in determining the other half of the equation - that is what is going wrong physiologically within the body and not allowing the body to function optimally, once we collect all your clinical symptoms, which is the first part of the equation.

Through preventive screening, scientifically based laboratory tests also aid in the early detection of potentially life threatening conditions, and in so doing, lead to early treatment. In short, laboratory tests can help both to save lives and to improve the quality of life.

Total Healthcare Naturally offers you a huge variety of health tests that will not only help us diagnose you more accurately, but also help us determine and pin point the exact root of your underlying symptoms. Your naturopath at Total Healthcare Naturally will determine which clinical lab tests would be ideal for a proper diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of conditions and diseases.

We use state of the art medical laboratories such as the ARL Functional Pathology and Genova Diagnostics Inc (Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratories). These laboratories are world renowned for their high quality testing, providing increased accuracy and sensitivity with test results and take into account the individual's symptoms.

We offer specialized testing in the following areas:

  • Allergy Testing / Immunology
    Detailed and comprehensive tests crucial to make accurate, precise diagnosis of food and environmental allergies.
  • Hormone Testing / Endocrinology
    Various hormone tests to accurately diagnose hormone status related to female and male hormonal imbalances related to PMS, Andropause, Menopause, Thyroid issues (Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism) and Stress Hormone – Cortisol, and Melatonin for sleep disturbances such as insomnia and Seasonal Affective Disorders among others>
  • Gastrointestinal / Digestive Testing
    Accurate stool, urine and blood tests to evaluate gastrointestinal function that includes analyses of digestion, absorption, bacterial balance, yeast and parasites. For patients with any gastrointestinal related symptoms, such as indigestion, yeast overgrowth, constipation, and diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s and colitis.
  • Nutritional / Toxic / Heavy Metal Testing
    Includes comprehensive nutritional / heavy metals evaluation designed to identify clinical imbalances that may inhibit optimal health. Even if you are eating a balanced or healthy diet and taking supplements, your body could still lack vital and necessary nutrition. These tests help you understand your individual dietary needs by evaluating their overall nutritional status, assessing their functional need for vitamins and minerals, and providing recommendations for supplementation.
  • Metabolic Testing
    Tests to address chronic systemic complaints: fatigue and mood disorders to headaches, muscular/joint pain, and digestive problems. These tests evaluate four critical areas of metabolism: gastrointestinal function, cellular energy production, neurotransmitter processing, and amino acid-organic acid balance as influenced by vitamin / mineral cofactors.
  • Additional pathology and urine testing
