Tests & assessments

Naturopathy and health support

To create the most effective treatment plan possible for you, we need to know some things about you to start with. We use our clinical experience and judgement as well as questionnaires. But we don’t guess. Where appropriate, we can run a range of tests and assessments that will help both of us understand we’re you’re at. Tests are done in-house or through an affiliated pathology laboratory.

Where appropriate, these tests will help to create a treatment plan based on facts and to monitor your progress. Please bring a copy of all medical tests you’ve had in the last two years to your first consult so we avoid duplicating tests you’ve done before.

There are many tests and laboratories available. We pride ourselves on being extremely discerning with the testing we use and only suggesting tests with sufficient evidence to back their use. Also, we will only recommend a test when we feel it will change the course of our treatment or provide a missing piece of information.
