Functional Testing

With several non-invasive options for children, Functional Testing can be like a looking glass into what's really going on underneath it all.

By gaining insight into the processes of the body, and not just a snapshot of the symptoms, often this sort of testing can shorten the overall treatment time, by removing any of the initial 'guesswork'. 


Here at Natural Body Lab you have the option of a wide array of Functional Pathology tests as part of your Naturopathic journey. 

They can be offered as an option to speed up treatment plans, but are always used in conjunction with full case history and thorough understanding of the person  and relevant factors. It is important that the results are interpreted correctly, and a case history is taken into consideration when forming a treatment plan.

Testing is simple, even during Virtual Consultations. A referral and test kit can be sent out to you. All pathology samples can be collected in your home, except for blood, which is done at your local Melbourne Pathology lab, or another pre-arranged one. 

Some of the tests available are


  • Saliva Hormone Profiles (Adrenal hormones, Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone and more)
  • Extensive Thyroid Panel
  • Digestive Stool analysis
  • Hair Mineral Analysis
  • Food Allergy Panels
  • Pyrroles and Neuroendocrine Testing
  • C4a (Biotoxin markers)

"I came off the Pill after many years and my hormones went absolutely crazy! I tried everything - detoxes, herbs, special diets. Saliva testing showed me exactly what was wrong and what the Pill had done to my body. It made it so much easier for us to make the right changes and find the balance again. Thankyou!
