This test enables you to find out on the spot how your thyroid is performing at that particular point in time. Initially, ideally packaged up in a thyroid screening appointment for first assessment and formation of a treatment plan. Then as an ongoing assessment tool to measure the progress and success of your treatment plan and dosing of medication.
Thyroflex test $60.

Food intolerance testing
food intolerance is a ‘chemical’ reaction or digestive system response, not an immune response (as with an allergy). Surprisingly common and rarely life threatening, food sensitivity can cause headaches, breathing problems, palpitations, nervousness, diarrhea, itchy skin, depression or behavioural problems in children. The IgG Food Sensitivity testing I use is interpreted in relation to a case history and other test results, and is an efficient and reliable method for diagnosing individuals with adverse reactions to food.
(depending on what is required.)
Body composition testing
Knowing your body composition is useful if you are trying to lose weight, put on muscle mass or improve your sporting performance. I use a machine that passes a low voltage electrical current through your body – safe and painless! It gives me information on how much muscle and fat you have in your body and helps me monitor your cellular health and energy levels. From this information I can write a program that will help improve your vitality and energy.
Price: $60 (included in a consultation)
zinc deficiency is almost endemic in our society and is associated with a range of health issues such as allergies, arthritis, diabetes, eating disorders, depression, insomnia, eczema, hair loss, delayed wound healing and behavioural disorders. Assessing zinc levels can be difficult, as much of the body’s zinc stores are in the bones. Blood, sweat, hair and white blood cell analysis is expensive and time consuming. The Zinc Taste Test however, is a quick, cost-effective and reliable clinical test that determines a client’s requirement for zinc. The oral test can easily be re-taken after a month of supplementation to reassess levels. Zinc makes things happen in our body so it needs to be at the right levels so you can function correctly.
Price: Free with consultations.
Naturopath Mornington Peninsula Pathology testing
I am able to order an extensive array of functional pathology blood, saliva, urine and stool testing if needed.
Blood glucose testing
Glucose is a major source of energy for most cells of the body, including the brain. Carbs and sugar-laden foods are quickly turned into glucose in your body, raising your levels after eating. This test is used where signs of blood sugar dysregulation are present….either high or low.
Price: Free with initial consultation.
Blood pressure testing
Urine, salivary and blood testing
Subtle changes to the pH of the body can have large impacts on your health, including stress, pain, bone density and hormonal balance. Urinary pH is a good measure of the ‘acid load’ within a body and is a good place for me to start when tailoring a treatment plan.

(urine and saliva)
Iodine’s main action is involved in thyroid function. Due to the many actions carried out by the thyroid, the implications of iodine deficiency are vast: hypothyroidism, impaired mental function, infertility, reduced immune function, risk of miscarriage and fibrocystic breast disease. A large proportion of iodine ingested is excreted via the urine (~90%), which is why this test can provide an accurate approximation of dietary iodine intake.
Price: $60-120, (depending on what is required.)
DID YOU KNOW?
No two irises are exactly alike. In fact, they’re as individual as your fingerprint! For this reason, some companies who require top-secret security use iris scanners for personal identification purposes. (Very Star Trek!)
