Functional Testing

Are you one of the countless individuals that have visited your GP complaining of a whole host of symptoms, whereby you have had a load of blood tests and they all come back ‘normal’?

Are you a healthy clinical ‘norm’?

Clients often come to see me because routine blood tests show their results are clinically ‘normal’ when they don’t actually feel ‘normal’.

Functional DX blood chemistry testing focuses on the ‘functional’ ranges, the range the body is designed to function at optimally by using advanced blood interpretation technology to reveal what traditional blood analysis doesn’t.

There is good reason to opt for Functional DX blood chemistry testing:

DNA Testing

Gene testing is proving to be the key that unlocks the code to healthy living and longevity. Your genes are not necessarily your destiny and a DNA test can highlight weaknesses before they become illnesses.

Genetics is the code that tells us our weaknesses, but epigenetics is the science that tells us what we can do about it. By making the right changes you can switch on defective genes and express these positively to improve your health.

If genetics gives you the bad news then epigenetics tells you what you can do about it. Now you are empowered via epigenetics with the appropriate supplements and lifestyle changes to optimize your gene health.

Areas to focus on

Unlock your health and well-being potential, discover your genetic profile.

You will gain more thorough understanding of your genetic predispositions and environmental factors impacting on your overall health and weight.

You will receive:

  • DNA results for specific genes with clear explanations and indicators to highlight genetic predispositions

  • Clinical assessments with explanations and indicators to address these health and lifestyle issues

  • Genotype eating plans to get you started on the right nutritional pathway

  • Genotype exercise plans to do the right workouts for your body type.

  • Nutritional supplements to tackle your genetic defects and health issues head on.
