Diagnostic and functional testing
Depending on what we discover in our consultations, sometimes I might recommend further testing – there is a range of tests you can have in order to get a clear picture of what’s happening with your health.
Blood Tests, please bring along any blood test results you may have had recently; there might be some recommendations to have further tests done.

Adrenal Hormonal Profile, this non-invasive salivary test accurately measures bio-active levels of cortisol and other adrenal hormones in the body. Levels are tested over the course of a day to determine the function of the adrenals. Chronic stress taxes the adrenals and can lead to adrenal fatigue. This is an ideal test if you are tired but wired, and having trouble getting up in the morning, or struggling to get to sleep at night.
