Functional medicine

Functional medicine

“Functional medicine” describes health analysis that integrates body systems’ interactions, diet and lifestyle. Your individual treatments are based on evidence from modern research, traditional knowledge, pathology and further testing.

At Cloud9 Naturopathy, we follow the numbers. We first help you to get the most information from targeted Medicare-rebated pathology tests. Results are compared to the reference ranges from the local laboratory, tracked over multiple tests to find your individual “normal”, and compared to optimal health values based on international standards. We aim to closely monitor and detect early changes in health.

Sometimes highly specialised testing is required. Functional tests such as food intolerance analysis can provide in-depth results to guide highly targeted treatment plans. Hair mineral testing analysis screens for exposure to heavy metals; DNA analysis shows subtle variations in genetic makeup and its likely effects on metabolism; and faecal mapping reveals the microbiome balance in the colon and its implications for gut health and management. Nutraceuticals can support detoxification, modify specific biochemical pathways affected by small changes in DNA, and supply the building blocks for healthy blood vessel walls and gut membranes.

Cloud9 Naturopathy looks forward to helping you better understand your health and together provide patient-centred care to build better and optimal health.
