Functional Testing

Remove the guesswork

Functional Testing

Functional Testing is used by many practitioners as it provides a snapshot of your current health status. It provides valuable information on how optimally your body is functioning and can confirm or rule out suspected ROOT causes of many symptoms. It offers a baseline from which we can measure your progress. Whilst it is not our job to diagnose, we can rule out potential disease.

The tests used at Complete Health Solutions are measured via saliva, blood, urine, breath or stool samples and are analysed by professional, recognised laboratories in the UK.

Organic Acids Test (OAT)

  • Collection Method: Urine

The Organic Acids Test is a nutrition test that offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with 76 markers.  The test examines metabolites (chemical substances produced by your metabolism) that are coming out with, and in, your urine. These metabolites can give clues about the efficiency (or lack of) of your internal cellular processes, as well as gut microbes. It gives clues if we have a blockage, nutritional insufficiencies, and/or bacterial overgrowth.

Organic Acids testing is effective for patient concerns such as:

  • Mood Disorders
  • Mitochondrial Dysfunction
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic Stress
  • Inflammation

Several diseases are associated with abnormal organic acid levels such as depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, neurocognitive decline, diabetes, cancer and many others.

Adrenal Stress Profile

  • Collection Method: Saliva

The Adrenal Stress Profile provides an assessment of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis by monitoring the hormones cortisol and DHEA.

Daily hassles, chronic pain, blood sugar dysregulation, work stressors, and poor relationship quality can alter the HPA axis. Imbalances in adrenal hormones can have a wide range of negative consequences that can adversely impact a patient's overall quality of life. The symptoms of HPA axis dysfunction can be vague, and are highly variable, but may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • GI complaints
  • Chronic pain

HPA axis dysfunction is associated with many conditions including:

  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Gastrointestinal and Immune Dysregulation
  • Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome
  • Depression
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Persistent pain
  • Burnout
  • Neurodegenerative disease and Cognitive decline

Adrenal Stress Profile testing can reveal these HPA axis imbalances and provide direction for clinical intervention with targeted therapeutic treatments, such as nutrient support and/or adaptogens, stress management, behavioural modification, and lifestyle interventions.
