Diagnostic Testing

Why diagnostic testing?

Traditional medicine can appear to take a black and white approach - if you don't have a diagnosable disease, then you must be healthy. If your blood reference ranges are within the 'normal' range, you have nothing to worry about.


Functional medicine, however, recognises that you do not develop a disease overnight. We understand that there is a period of malfunctioning and disturbed physiology and biochemistry present in the developing period of illness, which may be several years in the making. During this period your blood reference ranges may appear normal in traditional medicine.


Using testing to get a better understanding of exactly where these perturbations are in the body, allows us to intervene in a very specific way, to address these underlying causes of symptoms or illness, with the aim of restoring healthy function and in turn, optimal health.
