Functional Testing

Functional testing is available at both my clinics in Mackay. However, I always assess the necessity for testing before recommending it. This is because it’s often that when the underlying cause is identified and treated there is no need for further testing. Although there are certain complex cases that require functional testing to assist with developing the correct treatment strategy.

DNA testing continues to help people looking for solutions that work at improving health and wellness now and into their future.

When you understand your genetic make-up, you can use this to your advantage. Go from feeling helpless and never achieving results with your health to the freedom in knowing what works for you. This has the potential to set you up for a healthier life, helping to prevent diet-related health issues.

A personalised treatment plan gives you control and confidence in making the right choices that suit your genetic profile.

At Total Health Naturally, I offer several genetic tests and can help in choosing the one that’s right for you. I will also provide a report and personalised plan to guide you every step of the way.

Functional pathology testing forms part of the services offered in both clinics. I recommend these tests for more complex cases. They allow for investigation into your biochemical, nutritional, functional, metabolic and hormonal status. Functional and medical pathology testing aligns with my evidence-based approach to treatment.

The results from functional testing ensure an effective treatment plan is devised. Thus giving you the best health outcomes possible.
