Functional testing is a useful way to guide treatment options. When the correct testing is completed, results can be very valuable helping understand what is occurring within the body and what the next step should be.

As a practitioner Jean is able to utilise several types of tests to help better understand your individuality. Some common tests used are:

​Organic Acids Test (OAT)

The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with over 70 markers, including an evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. The OAT can detect abnormalities to guide treatments which may  include supplements, such as vitamins and antioxidants, dietary modification and emotional balancing techniques. The OAT is an excellent initial screening test.

Food Intolerance Testing

Food intolerances can be frustrating to live with and difficult to pinpoint what foods are causing the symptoms. Jean will use an accurate test which will identify what foods are causing irritation and inflammation. 

Symptoms of food intolerance can include but not limited to:

Constipation and bloating
Diarrhoea and IBS type symptoms

Skin Issues
Insomnia and sleep disturbances
Water retention

Genetic Testing - FitGenes & SmartDNA
SmartDNA saliva test looks at over 160 DNA changes.

FitGenes analyses 60 genes. Extra specific genes can be added, If you have had a genetic test through 23andme or ancestry Jean can have it converted to give you an explanation of 60 of your genes,

SmartGUT Microbiome Testing

Bacteria perform essential functions such as digesting food and synthesising vitamins. Recent studies have also linked the microbiome to human mood and behaviour via the gut-brain axis, as well as many gut disorders, weight gain, eczema, and chronic sinusitis. The Microbiome testing allows patients to see

  The percentage of the types of bacteria in your gut.
  How the bacteria in your gut may be affecting your overall heath.
  If any known pathogenic bacteria are present.
  How your diet is affecting your microbiome.

Jean will use this information to understand how your diet and environment could be affecting your bowel flora and health in general.
