What is functional testing?
Functional testing looks at functional health and wellbeing. It seeks to answer the question 'How is my body functioning?' Test results do not seek a diagnosis but rather they uncover levels of dysfunction. And dysfunction can be detected across the board - metabolic, nutritional, digestive, hormonal and so on.
What is naturopathic assessment?
Naturopathic assessment could also be called holistic assessment. It is the ability to assess a client from a completely holistic viewpoint and gather as much information as possible that will help to identify underlying causes and areas of dysfunction. This means using a wide range of tools - eg detailed case history, extensive questionnaires, dietary assessment, review of any test results from the previous 12 months, liaison with other practitioners if required (eg a GP), use of blood tests and functional tests.
