Functional Medicine (FX) is the field of medicine which involves the use of specialised laboratory tests.
Functional tests give full and comprehensive information on a huge range of health issues allowing for a more accurate diagnosis and therefore 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 and these can be particularly useful when health problems have been unresolved for a long period of time and more in depth information is required.
There are no FX laboratories in New Zealand and therefore 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.It is imperative that results are interpreted accurately and with relevance to you and your health situation. Consultations can be done via skype , by phone or in the clinic.
