ASSESS YOUR FUNCTION
We offer laboratory testing in a personal, caring environment to compliment our natural treatments and to provide a more detailed view of your current state of health. Alternative lab tests can detect functional imbalances in health status well before conventional testing which is aimed at primarily detecting disease states. Lab tests are chosen by our doctors on a case by case basis with the individual needs of our patients in mind. The following is an overview of some of the alternative lab testing available at Sage Clinic:
E95 FOOD ALLERGY TESTING
We offer a very simple blood test called the E95, to identify an individual’s sensitivity to 95 commonly eaten foods.
SALIVARY HORMONE TESTING
Testing hormones through the saliva is an easy, non-invasive way of assessing hormone levels
COMPREHENSIVE STOOL ANALYSIS
Through sampling the stool we not only test for the presence of parasites and yeasts that may directly affect our digestive function, but we are also able to assess how well the immune system is doing and how well we are absorbing nutrients that the rest of our body needs to function properly.
FINGER STICK TESTING FOR CHILDREN
This is a blood test used to assess allergies and sensitivities in children.
EAV / VEGA TESTING
Currently available in Victoria only: the Vega Bio-expert is an excellent tool for determining food sensitivities that is non-invasive, gentle and yields immediate results.
URINE TOXIC METALS AND ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS PROFILE
We administer a chelating agent that binds to, and then removes via the kidneys the toxic metals from your system.
