Health tests

Finding out what’s underpinning a health problem sometimes requires more than clinical skill. That’s when biochemical tests can be very useful. The information they reveal can help us to address the critical factor(s) and therefore resolve health problems much faster and more efficiently.

In my practice, I use a variety of tests, all from reputable laboratories. Here is a selection of the most common:

  • Female hormone panel
  • Adrenal stress index
  • Total thyroid screen
  • Digestive function
  • Parasitology and gut microbiology
  • Liver detoxification capacity
  • Hair mineral analysis
  • Homocysteine
  • Gluten intolerance (Coeliac). A home test that requires a pin-prick sample of blood can identifiy antibodies present in Coeliac disease
