Not heard of Functional Pathology before? It is how we, at SCNH dive deeper into understanding the causal factors of your health symptoms. Functional pathology testing aims to investigate biochemical, metabolic, hormonal & nutritional processes that may be underlying your condition.
Why do Functional Testing?
Functional testing is slightly different from the normal pathology testing you may receive from you GP or specialist- as it looks at how your body is functioning within particular systems. This is effective in Naturopathic Practice as it presents a highly detailed insight into what your body is doing now- and how it is functioning.
Does SCNH do regular blood pathology testing?
We certainly do, we have a few options for undertaking regular pathology tests to analyse certain markers such as iron, b12, zinc, liver function testing and so on. Your Naturopath will either send you direct to a laboratory for these tests or send you away with a letter of referral to take to your GP.
