Clinical Testing

Find the root cause of your health issues with scientific naturopathic testing and analysis.

Natural Pain Solutions places great importance on clinical testing, particularly when finding solutions to chronic problems. Tests give us valuable information to discover the root cause of your health issues.

Health conditions and diseases don’t usually suddenly appear – they are normally a result of many years of dietary and lifestyle choices that don’t suit your body, exposure to toxins and a whole host of other factors.

When you feel like something is wrong but your doctor’s tests are coming up negative, our tests will give you an accurate understanding of your health status, and the power to take action immediately.

Our naturopathic tests are different from medical tests in that we are not looking for a disease state, but instead at how well the body is functioning.  We do this through a range of testing procedures, including blood, urine and frequency testing (scroll down for a full list).  We look for factors such as nutritional imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, exposure to heavy metals and other toxins, the presence of parasites, food and environmental sensitivities, hormonal problems and more.

All these factors, and more, are part of your internal ‘ecosystem’. We call it an ecosystem because, just like an ecosystem in nature, your body is a whole organism that stays alive because your organs, tissues, fluids, cellular processes, bacteriological colonies and a myriad of other factors, all work together in an astonishingly intricate way.  Focusing on a particular part of this ecosystem and ignoring the rest may get rid of a symptom for a while, but it will not normally result in lasting health.

Our goal is to get an in-depth understanding of how your own personal ecosystem is functioning, where things are going wrong and why your body has created a state of dis-ease (whether this is a diagnosed health condition or painful/alarming symptoms).

We then prescribe you targeted medicines and give you diet and lifestyle advice, all designed to correct functional problems and optimise your internal ecosystem so your body’s own healing processes can be activated.

Again and again, we find that pain, alarming symptoms and even long-standing health conditions resolve, once we eliminate what was stopping your body from healing and prescribe you specific herbs and nutritional medicines to activate your body’s healing processes.

Some clients have described the changes they have experienced as ‘miraculous’ – in reality, though, the only miracle is their very own body, finally getting what it needs to do it’s normal job of staying healthy.

Clinical testing is a key part of our process, as the more we understand about what is going on inside your body – how your personal ecosystem is functioning – the better we are able to help you.
