Health Coaching, Epigenetics & Functional Health Testing

Stress and certain foods can cause superficially unknown havoc deep within our bodies and prevent us from feeling optimum health and well-being or achieving specific goals.  Having these under control can completely change your life. If you feel like you have tried every diet and exercise plan but nothing seems to get you where you want to be, it could be what's going on inside that is holding you back - we need to have a chat, lets uncover the possibilities together.

FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING
Sometimes certain foods, healthy or not, can make you feel unwell. They may trigger any number of food sensitivity symptoms, such as headaches, digestive issues, joint pain or skin problems.

It can be difficult to determine which foods are the culprits, as food sensitivity reactions are often delayed by a few hours or longer after eating the foods.  Some symptoms can even go unrealized as they have been around for so long they seem normal - eg. bloating, skin irritations, asthma.

To help identify these potentially problematic foods, food sensitivity tests are available.  These are conducted to measure your production of immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies to foods (immune response), and therefore the sensitivity level to a certain food.  Blood Spot Testing is used for this type of testing


Blood Spot Analysis is the method used for this type of testing. This is an example of a filled card ready for analysis.

ADRENAL STRESS TESTING  (Cortisol/DHEA profiling)
The adrenal glands are tiny organs above the kidneys that manufacture a variety of hormones your body needs to thrive — including cortisol, which is released when you feel stress  ("fight or flight" physical response).  When we experience long-term stress and our body is in this state for a prolonged time, we can start to experience such things as:

  • anxiety or depression
  • inability to lose body fat (mid-section)
  • sleep disturbances
  • digestive problems
  • irritability
  • tiredness & lethargy
  • skin breakouts or rashes

Naturally cortisol levels will fluctuate during the day, so using a saliva 4-sample testing method will monitor these levels throughout the day to provide clear observations.  The profiling of DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone), your "repair & recovery" hormone is an important inclusion to determine how/if your body copes with the stresses


Saliva samples taken throughout the day are used to create a profile of daily Cortisol levels.
This is an example adrenal testing kit.
