Testing Services

As part of a naturopathic treatment plan we may occasionally have to request additional testing to help find the missing piece of the puzzle.

Functional pathology can help identify possible underlying physiological conditions which may be contributing to your current health condition. Utilising testing does not replace a full naturopathic case analysis but can enhance your treatment protocol.  

Any functional pathology or out of house testing requested is in addition to our normal treatment costs and as many are not covered by medicare there may be additional charges.  We will always work in conjunction with your own Doctor and additional testing may be requested through them if they are happy to do so.

NatureSense Health and Wellness utilises some of Australias' best medical laboratories to ensure quality and efficacy to any testing requested.

Some tests that can be requested:
