Health Tests

 Did you know that Naturopaths can order pathology tests?

We are particularly interested in what is known as functional pathology. These gives detailed reports on things like bacterial and parasite activity, mitochondrial disorders, toxic load, pyrroles, homocysteine, vitamin D, hormones and MTHFR (methylation) for example.  Other health tests we provide in clinic include:
  1. Health Assessment Scan
  2. OligoScan
  3. Live Blood Analysis
  4. PH and Metabolic testing
  5. Food intolerance

Other Health Tests

Some health tests can be done on the spot, while others will be ordered from an external pathology lab.

The ESTECK system is a non-invasive health test or assessment that provides an overview of how your body is functioning in key areas. It was developed in France and is used by Doctors in Europe as well as Mexico, USA and Australia.

The assessment also enables the practitioner to identify further tests which may be necessary and to monitor the treatment.

With each subsequent follow-up you can literally see how therapy, lifestyle and dietary choices are affecting your health. An ESTECK can enable us to identify risk areas before they become a real problem!

The actual scan takes about 5 minutes and is painless, safe and non invasive. There is NO radiation involved. You place your hands and feet on the electrode plates, while 2 other, smaller, electrodes are placed on your forehead.

You do nothing during the scan other than relax.

The method is based on recognised bioelectrical impedance measurements, heart rate variability and pulse oximetry. The technology measures the electrical resistance and flow of 22 key areas throughout your brain and body.

OligoScan for Minerals & Heavy Metals

A mouth swab for genetic weaknesses such as MTHFR, COMPT etc. can reveal blocks in metabolic pathways that may be corrected or modified with the right nutrition.

Live Blood Analysis

 Live Blood analysis is another tool that can help give us some clues as to what factors may be contributing to your fatigue or recurrent infections. A single drop of blood from your finger tip is viewed under a powerful microscope and projected on a screen.

Food Intolerance

  1. Bloated after eating certain foods?
  2. Tired at certain times of the day?
  3. Suffer headaches for no apparent reason?
These are all symptoms of food intolerance. You may often experience lethargy or ‘fogginess’ and generally feel unwell.

The good news is that you don’t have to wait for weeks to receive your results since we perform the simple food intolerance test in clinic. Just 40 minutes later and you can be armed with information that can completely change your life!

 Biological Terrain

RBTI Baseline Analysis is a tool that we use to measure the residues and components of samples of urine and saliva. This assists us in designing a program to help you achieve a better acid/alkaline balance in your body, while being able to absorb the nutrients from your food and supplements efficiently.


A mouth swab for genetic weaknesses such as MTHFR, COMPT etc. can reveal blocks in metabolic pathways and how these may be corrected or modified with the right nutrition.

 Mauve Factor (Pyrroles)

This health test is often valuable in cases of emotional instability. The test reveals a greater dependence on Zinc and vitamin B6, which consequently may be needed by people with anxiety, mood swings and depression.
