Testing

I may recommend Functional Medicine Tests which use specialist laboratories that test blood, stool, urine and genes, in order to assess nutritional imbalances and inform personalised nutrition as well as lifestyle recommendations in order to support optimal health. These advanced and proactive tests are not generally available via the NHS or private medical care at this time. When our GP blood tests results are reported as ‘normal’ but we know something isn’t quite right, it can be very confusing and raise more questions that cannot be answered in standard medical practice. There are a huge array of functional medicine tests available to help find some answers to our health questions.

Nutrigenomics Tests 

As part of the Nutritional Therapy consultation, I may recommend nutrigenomics testing.
Nutrigenomics is the latest advancement in nutrition science. We now understand that different genes are affected by the food that we eat. Information about our genes can assist me to resolve a missing piece of your health jigsaw puzzle or provide a preventative, proactive and personalised health protocol. 
This is not about informing ourselves that we have genes that relate to specific diseases, like the ‘breast cancer’ gene. We can use our genetic information to influence our bodies responses by increasing or decreasing specific foods and nutrients or changing our lifestyle habits, including; sleep, stress, physical activity and other environmental factors such as smoking or other pollutants. 

 

Understanding your personal genotype can help to identify which lifestyle changes could be most effective for you as an individual. I am a BANT registered Nutrigenetics Counsellor which means that I have been trained to look at the results of genetic profiles at a deeper level and consider the way that the individual genes work together and affect each others responses. With this information, I can create a proactive and preventative approach towards optimising your health.
