Foundational Blood Test London

Foundational Health Check

The Future Of Health Is Data-Driven, Personalised & Empowering 

Why The Foundational Health Check 

The Foundational Health Check provides up to 150 health biomarkers to better understand your hormonal, immune, metabolic, digestive and nutritional health status.  Following your blood and urine test you will have in-depth functional interpretation with Elena Rolt.

During your consultation you will learn how your current functional imbalances relate to your symptoms. More importantly, Elena will discuss and explain how these imbalances could be corrected with focussed nutritional and lifestyle changes, as well as supplementation. 

Functional vs. Conventional Blood Testing

Functional blood chemistry analysis is quite different from a conventional blood test. First of all, the interpretation of your results is based on OPTIMAL levels for each biomarker, not “normal” reference levels. Normal reference levels are based on increasingly unhealthy population, while optimal levels are much narrower and based on your age and gender. Do you experience symptoms but your blood test results keep coming back “normal”? Then you need to look at optimal levels, as well as wider range of markers to get to the bottom of your health challenges.

Second of all, functional blood chemistry interpretation allows to identify certain patterns and conditions. For example, a few suboptimal markers may indicate a parasitic infection, such as raised Eosinophils, raised Monocytes, raised Monocytes, raised/low White Blood Cells, low Ferritin, low ALP. These patterns may not even be picked up in your conventional blood test, as they could be within the “normal” range.

Testimonials

What My Happy Clients Say!

“Elena has inspired me to start my health optimisation journey. She has done several functional tests for me (microbiome etc) and helped identify and treat a few issues they showed. It transpired I had candida (which explained some issues I had for years) and through following Elena’s advice, this has been sorted.

She has also tweaked my diet, encouraging me to include food groups I used to ignore and making sure my morning smoothies were balanced, teaching me optimum nutrition for better health. She has also given me advice on sleep, stress management, and weight loss. I have now lost 6kg following Elena’s recommendations and have never felt better.”
