15 Minute Discovery Call to meet and greet. This is a great time to see if we are the right fit for each other.
If we both agree to work together I will send you links to complete your thorough health history form and questionaire, conset form and terms and conditions.
Please sign and return these forms prior to our Initial Consultation
This consult will last between 60 to 80 minutes.
Functional Medicine is NOT a quick fix. Many factors of your health and lifestyle are examined and assessed.
I will have already revised your health history data you provided via email. We will go over and summarise the key areas of concern and formulate a plan forward.
I will recommend pathology and / or functional medicine lab tests, lifestyle changes, dietary and sleep hygiene tips.
A full personalised Functional Health Report will be supplied for all Laboratory Tests completed – see Followup consult for more information.
Baseline pathology testing can be very informative and a great start to your individual analysis, most of these tests will be covered by medicare and included in the Consult fee.
Functional Tests are not covered under medicare and thus will be at your own expense. You may not even need any of them! We will review and discuss these options together.
Medicare Rebates available

So what are Functional Tests?
There are hundreds of functional tests available for an individual. Here are examples of a few more common tests:
- GI Mapping – detects and assesses the status of pathogens, viruses, parasites and bacteria that may be contributing to acute or chronic gastrointestinal symptoms and disease.
- Food Sensitivity tests – Immunoglobulin G (IgG) food testing is useful for structuring elimination diets for patients with many chronic conditions. Individuals with neurological, gastrointestinal, movement and behavioural disorders often suffer from IgG food sensitivities.
- Dutch test – extensive profile of sex and adrenal steroid hormones, along with their all-important metabolites.
- Organic Acids Test – comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a overall health with over 70 markers. It provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function.
- Methylation profile – Normal metabolism of methionine is critical for cellular methylation of DNA, proteins and neurotransmitters. Test results can appropriately guide nutritional support
- Neurotransmitter analysis – assessment of the ability to synthesise and metabolise neurotransmitters, both in the periphery and, for some enzymes, behind the blood brain barrier as well.
