Listen to your body

Take charge of your wellbeing

Ordinary clinical lab testing compares results against a set scale, and if your levels fall within a range, you might be told that they are ‘normal’, when in fact they might indicate a tendency or shift towards ill-health. You might even feel significantly unwell, but despite your body’s obvious signals, diagnosis might not occur, which can leave a person feeling alone and misunderstood, lacking the help they need to feel great in their own skin.

Functional testing looks at results in greater detail, analysing your levels in the context of prevailing symptoms. It supports and empowers those who wish to listen to their body and take control of their health.

With Meg Kennedy

Functional Testing looks at lab results through the lens of achieving optimal health and preventing disease. It doesn’t stop at ‘okay’, or ‘normal’, but facilitates robust health, helping you understand your own body and what it is trying to tell you. Why settle for ‘normal’ when you can be ‘optimal’?

  • Have your results interpreted by an expert
  • Move from surviving to thriving
  • Hear lifestyle recommendations specifically for you
  • Take advantage of personalised nutrition and supplement advice

Frequently Asked Questions

About Functional Testing

  • Know which test you need?

    If you have been testing yourself for a long period of time and need access to a specific test to have it analysed…


  • My latest blood tests came back as ‘normal’. Why do I need further testing?

    Your doctor has a job to do and a limited time within which to do it. GP practice and hospital tests look for major signs of full-blown serious disease as a matter of priority, but those tests only cover a limited range of measurements. Functional testing enables you to get into the detail of your body and its health needs, assessing you from a preventative angle. If you don’t feel or function well but your doctor says you’re fine, it’s worth listening to your body.

“I met Meg after years of aches and pains (fibromyalgia), chronic headaches, gut issues, PMT and very low energy. I was taking pain relief regularly just to get through my day. Meg knew exactly what I needed to fix my broken body and now I’m pain-free. I haven’t had to take pain relief for so long now and I’ve learned how food is information for the body and mind.  Meg is compassionate and extremely knowledgeable, and I highly recommend her.”
