Functional Testing looks at physiological function instead of just looking for the presence of disease markers.

We use a variety of tests to give us a deep insight into the functioning of the body.

Some of the areas we can investigate include:

Hormones
Toxicity and Detoxification
Cardiovascular health
Digestive Analysis
Micronutrients
Methylation Status
Neurotransmitters
Viral Testing
Cardiometabolic Testing

Functional Testing can be done at the Bodhimaya Clinic or arranged at a clinic close to your home or office.

Functional Testing is essential for any meaningful genetic analysis. It helps us see how your genes may be expressing themselves and help us to give you more tailored and effective dietary, supplement and lifestyle recommendations.

The following is included in the BodhiGen Genetic and Biological Data Analysis:

 

  • Genetic Testing

    We test for thousands of SNP's (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms / Genetic Variations) that may be affecting your health, wellbeing and the functioning of your body.

  • Metabolic Analysis Profile

    Metabolic Analysis assessment of 45 key organic acids relating to vitamin deficiencies, malabsorption, gut dysbiosis, cellular energy and mitochondrial metabolism, neurotransmitter breakdown and toxin exposure & detoxification requirement.

  • Amino Acids Analysis
    An analysis of nutritionally essential and non-essential amino acids and intermediary metabolites that show B vitamin requirement, and protein digestion & absorption support requirements.

  • Essential & Metabolic Fatty Acids Analysis
    Assessment of Omega 3, 6 and 9 Fatty Acids, Saturated Fatty Acids, Monounsaturated Omega 7 and Trans Fats. It also provides key ratios for understanding cardiovascular risk.

  • Elemental Analysis
    Evaluates nutrient status and toxic element exposure.

  • Oxidative Stress
    Oxidative Stress biomarkers highlight the body’s current state of oxidative stress and reserve capacity. Markers of oxidative injury assess cell membrane and DNA damage, while direct measurement of glutathione and CoQ10 provide insight into antioxidant reserve available to counter free-radical impact.
