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:
Toxicity and Detoxification
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:
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.
Evaluates nutrient status and toxic element exposure.
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.
