LAb Tests

Why use lab tests? 

Diagnostic tests can often explain long-standing symptoms and accelerate the healing process through focused treatment.

Specialist laboratory blood tests can also establish nutrient deficiencies as it is not wise to take vitamins and minerals long-term, (as many people do) without any professional guidance. This is because it can create imbalances and excesses that can be potentially detrimental.


Examples of test that can be ordered for clients include gut tests such as microbiome (stool) analysis, breath tests for small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO), gut permeability profiles (leaky gut), hormonal tests such as the Dutch test and the Rhythm, plus comprehensive thyroid tests, toxicity screens, cardiovascular risk factors, methylation analyses and more. 

Any tests I recommend, will be discussed in detail and agreed with you.

As an experienced practitioner with a high regard for their services I have devised two totally, unique profiles with Biolab - at a specially discounted rate for my clients:

  1. Kirsten Brooks Stress Profile
    This rules out the common nutritional deficiencies that can occur from chronic stress and which also compromise our well-being (B vitamins, zinc, magnesium -in the red cell, vitamin C and co-enzyme Q10).

  2. Kirsten Brooks Vegan Profile
    This determines levels of some key nutrients that vegans can be deficient in due to their dietary restrictions (Omega 3, minerals such as iron, iodine, selenium, zinc and calcium, plus active vitamin B12.)

Neither of these profiles are available on the NHS.

NHS tests

Not everyone can afford private lab tests of course. I may also, where appropriate, recommend specific blood tests which are available on the NHS and/or you can also bring your NHS results along to consultations. I will then prescribe supplements, where relevant.

Lab test costs vary and are charged in addition to consultation fees. All lab tests will be discussed in detail and costs explained

Preventative Screens

I offer health preventative screens for those looking at a preventative approach to their health and well-being.
