Frequently Asked Questions

My GP blood tests say ‘normal no action’ why do you still need to see copies of the results? 

Your GP blood tests are not looking to see if you are in optimal health, they are looking to see if you are not in ‘normal’ health. Often they are looking for specific markers, to indicate a potential disease state or a deficiency. ‘Normal’ is based on average populations including people who are unhealthy. Whereas, I’m not looking for ‘normal’ health, I am looking for optimal health and therefore use a different set of markers based on healthy populations. Also, I am looking for patterns. If you have a blood test one year and you are at the bottom of the 'normal’ range, then the next year you are at the top of the ‘normal’ range, both sets of results will show ‘normal no action’, but I would be investigating why there should be a sudden leap from one to the other, what might have caused it, and does that relate to your symptoms. If you wait until the next year, it may show abnormal, but I like to be proactive and respond to unusual patterns before they become an issue.


My GP Blood, stool and urine tests were all fine, why do I need to do them

I will not be recommending the same tests as your doctor. Each test is very specific.
