I ‘ve Had Tests Done By My Doctors How Are These Different?
Functional medicine tests are not available through the hospital or GP. They investigate your symptoms from a different perspective. Read through the copy and watch the video on each page to understand whether the test is right for you. Please note our testing if not a substitute for medical advice. If you’re concerned about your health, please speak to a qualified medical practitioner.
 
Why is Functional Medicine So Expensive?
Often when we total up the cost of your time trying numerous treatment approaches, supplements, medications and trips to your physician, the cost of a simple test, so you can understand what is causing the underlying imbalances, is far more economical in the long term.

 
Would I Be Better To Wait And See If My Symptoms Persist Before Doing Any Testing?

 The sooner you take action, the easier it will be to address any imbalances.
 
Would I Be Better Just To Change My Diet First, Introduce Some Supplements And If That Doesn’t Work Then Consider Testing?
These tests are designed to take the guesswork out of your treatment approach. Testing can often be a crucial first step for determining the specific supplements and dietary changes your body requires to help address your underlying imbalances. Without testing, it’s often just an educated guess, at best.
