Thyroid Profile

Thyroid Profile

What markers are tested?

A full Thyroid Blood Profile includes the testing of several blood markers including TSH (the standard blood test to screen for thyroid dysfunction through medicare) as well as Free T3, Free T4, Anti-TPO, Anti-TG, Reverse T3, and SHBG. (TRABs available on request)

Halide Profile

Halide Profile

What markers are tested?

Iodine and bromide are both halides that affect thyroid function.

Iodine is an essential element for detoxification, thyroid function, cellular health, immunity and for the healthy functioning of the entire hormonal system. Iodine is one of the most potent antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial elements in our diet. 96% of Australians are iodine deficient, leading to a multitude of health problems. Iodine deficiency is the main cause of goitre (enlarged thyroid gland) and thyroid malfunction. Iodine deficiency can also cause oxidative stress and DNA alterations in the thyroid gland.

Nutritional Profile

Nutritional Profile

What markers are tested?

A full Nutritional Blood Profile examines and maps your Methylcobalamin/Active B12, Vitamin D, Methylated folate/5 MTHF, Serum folate, Ferritin, Transferrin, and Iron levels.

Each of these are important for different reasons.

Cardiovascular Profile

Cardiovascular Profile

What markers are tested?

This test examines your inflammatory & cardiovascular markers.

Triglycerides, CRP, LDL, HDL, Total Cholesterol and Homocysteine.

By examining these, we’re able to check for systemic inflammation and disease risk associated with poor thyroid, metabolic functions and hormone levels.

Adrenal Plus Profile

Adrenal Plus Profile

What markers are tested?

The Adrenal Plus Profile provides a much more in-depth examination of your adrenal hormones, including:

  • Diurnal (3 times in the day) salivary cortisol – stress and energy hormone
  • Close examination of your melatonin -sleep neurotransmitter
  • DHEA hormone levels – antiaging and adrenal hormone
Sex Hormone Profile

Sex Hormone Profile

What markers are tested?

The Sex Hormone Profile tests for the important female and male hormones; estrogen (E1, E2 E3), testosterone and progesterone. As we age the ratio between these hormones vary, and imbalances in these ratios can have a wider impact upon every other system in the body.

Blood Sugar Profile

Blood Sugar Profile

What markers are tested?

The Blood Sugar Profile is able to examine and map out your HBA1C, fasting Insulin, Leptin, Anhydroglucitol, and fasting Glucose. This provides your practitioner with a ‘snap shot’ or your blood glucose fluctuations. Insulin for example is the enemy of weight loss, so careful evaluation of blood sugar fluctuations is essential when looking at weight problems.

Food Intolerance Test

Food Intolerance Test

What markers are tested?

This simple blood test is able to measure your delayed reactions to 59 different food types. Using immunoglobulins, this test is able to see if you have a particular intolerance to certain food types by their reactions in your blood sample.

The different immunoglobulin food reactions:

Immediate reactions (IGE) to food intolerances are fairly obvious as they occur soon after eating the problematic food.

Delayed reactions (IGG) are much harder to pinpoint as reactions can occur up to three days after consumption. This is where the blood test can come in handy.
