At your initial consultation Rebecca will more than likely refer for more testing so she can investigate where your problems may be coming from. This will involve blood and urine testing. Some of these tests can be done through your GP however Rebecca may refer you directly.
Tests may involve:

  • Urinary pH – this test detects subtle changes to the pH of the body which can have substantial impacts on a arrange of health conditions including stress, bone density, pain, muscle mass and hormonal balance. This test is complimentary and done during consultation.
  • Full hormone profile – blood and/or saliva – hormones play such an important role in maintaining health and the determination of hormone levels can help identify many healthy related conditions. In both men and women adequate levels are necessary for optimal health and wellbeing.
  • Osteoporosis Risk assessment
  • Heavy metal testing – Hair, water and urine – Just a few grams of your hair can be analysed to find out if element imbalances or toxicity may be the root cause of your health problems. Hair analysis is an accurate, low cost and non-invasive method of determining your body’s level of toxic burden as well as mineral imbalance. This test provides information regarding recent and ongoing exposure to potentially toxic metals. Toxic elements may be 200-300 times more highly concentrated in hair than in blood or urine. Therefore, hair is the tissue of choice for detection of recent exposure to elements such as Arsenic, Aluminium, Cadmium, Lead, Antimony and Mercury. Hair Tissue Mineral analysis (HTMA) is regarded by many doctors and naturopaths as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care.
  • Coeliac testing
  • Stool analysis (Complete digestive stool analysis CDSA)- this provides an overview of the components of digestion, absorption, intestinal function and microbial flora as well as identifying pathogenic bacteria, parasites and yeasts. The CDSA is a non invasive test providing invaluable information in terms of understanding the role of poor digestive function in disease states. Symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, flatulence, bloating, abdominal discomfort and bad breath are all indicative of poor gut function.

 Other tests available:

  • Pyrrole disorder (Mauve factor)
  • SIBO (Small Intestinal Bowel Overgrowth)
  • Histamine Intolerence 
  • Stress hormones - Cortisol and DHEA
  • Sperm Analysis
