Kirsten may recommend diagnostic tests, where appropriate. Any laboratories used are scientifically accredited and include Biolab, Genova Diagnostics and Regenerus laboratories. Diagnostic tests can often explain long-standing symptoms and accelerate the healing process through focused treatment. Examples include gut tests such as microbiome analysis, breath tests for small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO), plus gut permeability profiles as well as hormonal, thyroid, toxicity screens, cardiovascular risk factor analyses and more.
Specialist laboratory blood tests can also establish nutrient deficiencies as it is not wise to take vitamins & minerals long-term, (as many people do) without any professional guidance. This is because it can create imbalances and excesses that can be potentially detrimental. Kirsten may also- where appropriate, recommend specific blood tests which are available on the NHS. She will also prescribe supplements, where relevant.
In addition, Kirsten offers health preventative screens for those looking at a preventative approach to their health and well-being.
