Blood Tests

We can send you for blood tests

At Wellness Perth Natural Medicine we can send you for blood tests, much like your regular doctor.

We also request you bring in your past blood tests for us, as there are often results which offer important information about your health. Past blood tests commonly provide areas to target for further testing and can hold important information which your doctor may not be trained to understand or may not have a medication to correct.

A wider variety of blood tests

There are many blood tests not available through our local doctors or Medicare system in Australia. Thankfully, we have access to literally thousands of blood tests through leading national and international laboratories, including both standard blood tests and specialised blood tests. At Wellness Perth Natural Medicine, we’re proud to be at the forefront of modern medicine, utilising blood testing to find answers and solutions for your health and well-being.

Functional medicine references ranges

When reviewing blood tests we utilise functional medicine reference ranges. Unlike standard Australian pathology ranges these are specific ranges your results should fall within to ensure your body is functioning optimally – and for you to be feeling well and healthy.

Many patients have experienced going to their doctor for blood tests because they feel unwell or fatigued, but are told their blood tests have come back ‘normal’ and there is nothing wrong with them. Does this really mean there’s nothing wrong with this person who feels unwell? Is the reference range appropriate for this individual? Are there more specific and detailed tests that may help us find the answer for this patient?

For example, many patients have been told they are in the ‘normal’ reference range for thyroid hormone levels; yet they still display symptoms of a low thyroid condition, such as fatigue, hair loss or difficulty losing weight. When we run our complete testing and review these from our unique perspective we usually have the answer and solution for this same patient!
