LAb Tests

Why use lab tests?

Diagnostic tests can often explain long-standing symptoms and accelerate the healing process through focused treatment. They can also be used preventatively.

Specialist laboratory blood tests can establish nutrient deficiencies as it is not wise to take vitamins and minerals long-term, without any professional guidance. This is because it can create imbalances and excesses that can be potentially detrimental. Kirsten has a food first approach making sure the fundamental eating habits are in place first but also will prescribe evidence-based supplements.


Examples of test that can be ordered include cortisol testing, gut tests such as microbiome (stool) analysis, breath tests for small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO), gut permeability profiles (leaky gut), mitochondria testing, toxicity screens and nutrigenomics testing. Plus, hormonal tests such as the Dutch test and the Rhythm and thyroid tests (which are all more comprehensive than on the NHS). 

She also offers cutting edge nutrigenomics testing (through the lab - Lifecode GX) which can help determine how your genetics are impacting your brain health, neurotransmitters, hormones, thyroid, weight/metabolism, energy production and so on. And then Kirsten can implement specific targeted modifications based on Lifecode GX’s evidence-based research on how to down-regulate genes.

  • Screen Me’s Fertility, hormone and PCOS tests

  • Invivo’s Female Ecologix (vagina microbiome) & Oral Ecologix (oral microbiome)

NHS tests

Not everyone requires or can even afford private lab tests of course. She may also recommend specific blood tests which are available on the NHS and/or you can also bring your NHS results along to consultations. She then prescribes supplements.

Lab test costs vary and are charged in addition to consultation fees. All lab tests will be discussed in detail and costs explained. If you'd like to find out more about the lab tests then please get in touch below
