Blood Analysis tells us if your blood is healthy
We identify the problem and track its resolution

Tests

GI Map – DNA Gut Microbiome Test

  • This is the most comprehensive stool test available.  Essential when you’re sick of trying to figure out what’s going on in your belly.
  • A thorough DNA assessment detects degree of Leaky Gut (and whether gluten is a problem for you)
  • Gut Immunity (risk of food sensitivities). Inflammatory Bowel Disease risk (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s),
  • Very detailed numbers of good and bad gut bacteria (some from undetected tooth infection)
  • Potential autoimmune triggers, Helicobacter (stomach ulcers),
  • Parasite and worm testing including blastocystis hominis, dientamoeba fragilis, giardia lamblia, cryptosporidium and more. 
  • Yeast, candida and fungus overgrowth
  • Hormone recycling problems, and for the first time VIRUSES – think Glandular Fever etc.
  • I’m super impressed with this test.
  • The Labs we use are Nutripath and Bioscreen.

Mental Health Testing & Genetic testing for Anxiety, Depression, Mood

  • Using Biobalance and Methylation testing to determine deficiencies that affect detoxification and mood.
  • MTHFR, Kryptopyroles.
  • Cortisol Awakening Response uses saliva to test the adrenal stress hormone cortisol at 6 different times of the day.  This enables us to determine whether you are cycling in and out of exhaustion and high stress.  Then we can target treatment at specific times of day.  It also checks DHEA.  

Thyroid Testing

  • Many of you are Iodine deficient, this is not commonly tested and is vital for Thyroid function.
  • Finding out about T4, T3, reverse T3 and Thyroid antibodies gives much more information than just TSH.

SIBO Test

  • Up to 75% of people with Irritable Bowel symptoms including bloating and or burping after meals, Gas, wind, abdominal cramping, diarrhoea, constipation, acid reflux, nausea, acne rosacea have SIBO.
  • Leaky gut symptoms including food sensitivities, joint pain, brain fog, itchy skin and can get off restrictive diets.
RBTI: Urine & Saliva – This is the best test to find out why you’re tired from the food you’re eating.

  • This amazing test gives us clear insights into your body chemistry including pH so we can see if you’re too acid or too alkaline.  It helps us find out the background of any health problems, as well as prevent conditions you may not be aware of yet.   It is the perfect way to see if you are following family disease tendencies.  We clearly see whether:
  • you are breaking down your food properly, absorbing it, clearing waste or storing it,
  • whether your liver is coping with it’s digestive role or not.
  • Carbohydrate levels can be too high or too low.  This indicates whether your energy crashes after meals and if you’re on track for insulin resistance or diabetes.
  • Salt levels indicate whether your diet needs changing or you just don’t drink enough water.
  • It also shows if a part of your body is under pressure, like the heart, thyroid, pancreas, gut and reproductive area.

Antioxidant & Free Radical Test:  Your Wellness uncovered in a few drops of blood.

Free Radicals are a by-product of food, chemicals and exercise and can lead to cell damage and genetic mutations. Antioxidants absorb the free radicals neutralising them.  If they don’t the damage is called Oxidative Stress. This can affect our energy, health, performance and cause premature aging. This can eventually lead to or accelerate the progress of diseases. This is a great way to determine whether your lifestyle is healthy or not.

VLA: This Body Health Test checks:

  1. Cell membrane resilience which determines whether you’re eating enough protein and good fats to keep you strong and resistant to disease, absorbing nutrients and clearing waste.
  2. Fluid balance shows whether your cells (you) are properly hydrated like a grape or dried up like a sultana!  You could be drinking a lot but it’s not getting to where it needs to be.  We can also see if you have fluid retention holding toxic waste that hinders weight loss and energy.
  3. Muscle mass. Do you have the right amount for your age?  Without enough muscle you don’t burn fat efficiently.  We start to lose muscle in our forties, so maintaining the muscle for healthy aging and life extension is vital.  We can see whether the exercise you are doing is actually keeping you healthy.
  4. Fat mass. Your percentage determines the style of eating and exercise that will work best for you.  Whether you need to reduce fat or gain it we can track it accurately.
  5. Mitochondrial Energy. This shows us whether your cells have plenty of energy or not. Then we can do something about it.
  6. Estimated Cell Age is best when it’s close to your actual age.  This is worth knowing to see if you’re older than you should be and how to restore your youthful vitality.
  7. Your accurate BMI makes sure that you are in the healthy weight range for your body type.

Food Sensitivity Testing

  • Are you wondering if wheat, milk or other foods are causing your uncomfortable symptoms? You’re not the only one!  Sometimes they’re not the problem though. I’d rather find out than torture myself by avoiding foods I like if they’re not the issue. Wind, pain, cramping, bowel disruptions and noise belly can be resolved.
  • Often children’s eczema is caused by common foods. It’s remarkable how quickly their skin heals once the food is removed and skin healing nutrients are temporarily used.
  • Constant blocked sinus, post nasal drip, irritating cough and runny nose can also be from food and or environmental factors.
  • see FAQ’s for more details on specific testing options.

Check out what our existing patients are saying below. Please note that as our approach is tailored to each patient and their specific needs, individual results may vary.

“I went to see Michelle, as I wanted advice on how to address my constant sinus pain and headaches. I also wanted to reduce my reliance on medication and increase my energy levels in the afternoon.

Michelle was able to confirm the foods that weakened my immune system. By eliminating these foods and taking a course of vitamins & herbs, my headaches vanished within a week. I have not taken sinus medication in eight weeks.  Michelle was also able to increase my energy levels which was a bonus!

Michelle was also a saviour in getting rid of my 5 years old daughter’s eczema.  Again, by discovering the foods that stressed her immune system and eliminating those foods from her diet, the eczema vanished!  I cannot thank Michelle enough for improving our health.” Maria

Zinc Test

A quick taste test determines your reserves of this vital nutrient. Up to 70% of Australians are zinc deficient and can benefit from supplementation. Clues are low immunity, poor wound healing, not coping with constant stress, frequent colds and flu, insomnia, anxiety and depression including post natal depression and skin health. As you can see, adequate zinc levels are vital for optimal health.

Blood Analysis: In House or Functional Pathology

Blood is considered ‘the River of Life’ and is the best way to view your inner health. Test results reveal the story of your blood to give us insights into the triggers and causes of many health concerns. These may include sluggish or overactive immune cells, which tells us whether you can efficiently activate your immune system to fight allergies, bacteria and viruses. Test results alert us to red cell size and structure that indicates nutritional deficiencies, oxidative stress damage and at other signs of inflammation, liver stress and leaky gut.  It’s fascinating to find out that something as basic as low iron can be causing common symptoms of fatigue, headaches, poor immunity and heavy period.

Blood Tests give us the keys to treatment choices that will revitalize and rejuvenate your health. Then we can track your progress not only with improved symptoms but changes in the blood results. We can determine which tests are relevant for you at your first consultation.  If you’ve had recent blood tests please bring a copy to your appointment, whether or not they were deemed ‘in range’.

Heavy Metal Tests

Our in house testing can determine whether heavy metals like Mercury, Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic and Copper are causing your system to become stressed or weakened.

Depending on the results we may decide to look Hair Mineral Analysis to determine the actual levels.  We recommend this for Fertility patients because we know that heavy metals block the absorption of essential vitamin and minerals that you need for healthy fertility as well as general health.  You can swallow tons of vitamins and minerals and but wont help if heavy metals are in the way.  Once we know we can do something about it.

Mercury can inhibit absorption of Zinc, perpetuate candida, poor immunity, headaches, pain, damage sperm, increase risk of miscarriage, and many more unpleasant symptoms.

It was a while ago but I saw you on a couple of occassions to discuss natural ways to favour a boy conception after having had two beautiful daughters. I followed your suggestions and conceived late July last year. I wanted to send you a quick update email to let you know that on 1 April 2011 I gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
Thanks for your assistance. Our family is now completed! Thanks again,

Since seeing Michelle and through a combination of diet and exercise I lost 8kgs in 8 weeks. Amazing results in such a short period of time. I was absolutely ecstatic with the results, my whole body changed. I dropped a dress size and had a flat stomach for the first time in years. And I was actually enjoying exercising as I wasn’t carrying around so much weight. Read Full Success Story

Michelle assessed my diet, and I no longer have problems with digestion,bloating, sluggishness or feeling fat and frumpy. Not only am I feeling better with more energy, but I have also lost body fat and feel healthier and happier. Michelle used her 6 week detox program and herbs specified to my needs as well identifying which foods I have an intolerance to.

I have suffered with bloating and cramping for many years and after no success with my doctor I decided to see Michelle. She assessed my symptoms and suggested a program to detoxify my body and "reset" the intestinal tract with a variety of specialised supplements.

Now 8 weeks later I’ve lost 6 kgs and hubby has lost 11 kgs just by eating the same foods as me. I am full of energy and am well on the way to a flat tummy! Read Full Success Story
