Naturopath Testing

Functional pathology testing differs from standard pathology testing as it aims to identify the root cause of heath issues.

Joanne is experienced in interpreting a range of functional pathology tests including:

  • Organic acids
  • DUTCH hormones
  • Methylation panels
  • Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis
  • SIBO testing
  • Urinary kryptopyrroles

These functional pathology tests are useful in identifying the underlying cause of unresolved health symptoms including:

  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Unexplained pain
  • Multiple chemical sensitivities
  • Food intolerances
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Chronic gut issues
  • Chronic skin issues
  • Brain fog, poor memory and concentration
  • Detoxification issues
  • Unexplained weight gain

Joanne will advise you if you will benefit from doing one of these tests.  All tests (except for the methylation panel) can be done at home with either breath, urine of faeces samples. The Methylation panel is a blood test which will need to be taken at a pathology centre.

If you have already had a functional pathology test done, Joanne will review the test as part of the initial consultation.
