What Is Functional Nutrition?
Understanding how your body is functioning at a metabolic level can give a great deal of insight into potential underlying causes of a particular problem. Functional testing embraces a person’s individual make-up and can give you a greater understanding of any imbalances that are present in your body. Call (02) 9938 5456 now to make an appointment.
If you want a clearer picture on any underlying metabolic dysfunction, functional lab tests can be of great benefit. Our Naturopath, Eliza Blackwood works closely with your GP and other healthcare professionals to make an accurate assessment of your health. Testing can include things like hormone levels and food intolerances.
Functional lab tests can help you on your path to optimal health and can help you take control of your health.
What About Traditional Blood Tests From My GP?
They are not the same thing. You can fall in the normal range with a traditional blood test and still be unhealthy. Apart from overt pathology, analysing the delicate nature of the normal biochemical cascade of effects can give you a greater understanding of the root cause of the problem. A problem upstream can lead to symptoms downstream.
