Testing Services

This is the range Testing Services used by Elizabeth Orme

1. Functional Tests

  • Functional Tests ask the question "How is my body functioning?" They do not seek pathology or a diagnosis, rather they are designed to detect levels of dysfunction
  • Let's take an example -- you maybe feeling very fatigued. All conventional tests have yielded no results. Functional Testing may show a number of urine metabolites, indicating deficiencies in certain nutrients, some enzymes that are underactive and low adrenal hormones levels. This leads to treatment options
  • Functional Tests are carried out using a number of laboratories (eg PathLab, Healthscope Pathology, NLS)
  • Samples are collected in the convenience of your home using Test Kits with full instructions. Alternatively, blood maybe drawn at a Collection Centre local to your area and forwarded to the relevant laboratory.

Tests used regularly include:
