Functional Medicine Testing


Functional medicine takes a holistic approach to healthcare, emphasizing prevention while addressing underlying imbalances in the body’s interconnected systems. Rather than zeroing in on isolated issues, it views the human body as an integrated whole, recognizing the intricate relationships between various physiological processes and functions. This patient-centered methodology aims to uncover and treat root causes, promoting overall well-being rather than merely managing symptoms.

At the Edinburgh Centre for Functional Medicine, we employ a comprehensive array of functional tests and assessments to meticulously evaluate multiple facets of your health. Our advanced diagnostic tools delve into areas such as hormone balance, microbiome health, genetic predispositions, food sensitivities, detoxification capabilities, nutrient levels, mold exposure impacts, and adrenal function – aspects that often go unexamined in standard laboratory testing. By harnessing these cutting-edge evaluations, we gain an in-depth understanding of your unique biochemical makeup and health concerns. Guided by the principle of biochemical individuality, our practitioners carefully select the most appropriate tests to formulate a highly personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
