Functional Medicine is the field of medicine that involves the use of specialised laboratory tests.
Functional Medicine Testing
Functional tests give full and comprehensive information on many health issues, allowing for a more accurate diagnosis and a more targeted treatment.
It focuses on the root cause of disease and allows for a more holistic approach to regaining health.
I offer a range of Functional Medicine Tests, which can be particularly useful when health problems have been unresolved for a long time and more in-depth information is required.
There are no FX laboratories in New Zealand, so tests are sent to Australia or the USA, where there are specialist Functional Medicine laboratories.
All Functional medicine tests require a consultation once the test results are through. Results must be interpreted accurately and with relevance to you and your health situation. Consultations can be done via Zoom, phone, or at my clinic.
