Once we have completed your Causality Investigations, I will recommend lab tests that you may wish to consider.  If you have the all-inclusive package, several of these tests will be included (GI Effects, Metabolomix and-or the DUTCH complete hormones test).

If you are on the PAYG option then you can order whichever tests you want from my online shop then book ad hoc Lab Review & Strategy consultations when the results come through.

The R.E.C.I.P.E.S. for Good Health give you a flavour of the tests you may want to consider for each of your body systems.

Step 3 is the nuts and bolts of how we will work together.  You already know the process: Discover, Analyze, Report, Integrate, Nourish and Guide.  So this is HOW we do it.  You will see that the R.E.C.I.P.E.S. for success are based on seven systems that will each have a direct impact on your overall wellbeing as well as your physiological health. Examples of questions I might ask relating to each of these areas are:-

  • Are you calm and relaxed?
  • Full of vitality?
  • Clear-headed and quick-witted?
  • Healthy, not afraid of either catching or spreading bugs?
  • Do you move around comfortably without getting puffed out?
  • Do you look trim?
  • Are you well-rested, bright-eyed and bushy tailed!

Each month my clients complete a Medical Symptoms Questionnaire and they are scored out of 200  An ideal score is less than 15, anything above that indicates that there is still work we can do!

DUTCH test for measuring stress and fertility hormones
  • Are you really coping well with the level of stress you are under?
  • Are high levels of stress hormones affecting the quality of your sleep?
  • Is stress affecting your ability to get pregnant?
  • Is stress making your menopausal symptoms worse?

The DUTCH test (Dried Urine Test for Complete Hormones) is an excellent measurement of your HPA axis.  It is a comprehensive assessment of adrenal and sex hormones and their metabolites.

  • Do your arms and legs feel ‘heavy’?
  • Do you plod along rather than have a spring in your step?
  • Do you ‘get through the day’ rather than embrace it full of vitality?
  • Are you suffering from ‘long covid’ or chronic fatigue syndrome?

Energy is not just about your ‘get up and go’ or whether you can run a 5k, it is actually about the energy at a cellular level and whether each of the cells in your body is performing at its best.  This is a huge and complex area with many root causes, but there are several lab tests that can give us an indication of what may be going wrong.  For example, we could look at a comprehensive metabolic profile to make sure you have the right nutrients to make your systems work correctly.  If not then we need to work out whether they are missing from your diet or if you are eating them but unable to digest them.   We could also run a heavy metals panel to see if you have a heavy toxic load due to exposure to heavy metals such as lead, cadmium or mercury.  Another option is to do a detox plan to cleanse your body either at a dietary or cellular level.  There are many options but the answer will become clear during your initial consultation.
