Thyroid Testing: Low thyroid is a common cause of fatigue and most doctors will only test TSH which is a poor indicator of low thyroid. At Planet Naturopath we test TSH, T4, T3, reverse T3 and thyroid antibodies.

Organic Acids Testing: It measures the function of the Citric Acid cycle, which is how your body makes energy! Each step of this process requires certain vitamins and nutrients and by identifying which aspects of the cycle are not working optimally we know what nutrients are needed. If you have fatigue issues this maybe the key to identifying why.
GI Map Stool Test: To identify any parasite, bacteria or candida infections, this test also measures your levels of good bacteria and absorption markers.
