Q. Do you do blood work?

Ian Craig uses the South African pathology labs Ampath, Lancet and Pathcare for standard blood tests, plus he accesses more digestion and immune-specific tests from Synexa Life Sciences in Cape Town - this would be tests like a digestive stool analysis and a food sensitivity panel. Additionally, he uses the full array of Johannesburg-based DNAlysis Biotechnology genetic tests (DNA Diet, Health, Sport & Oestrogen) and he sends samples to Denmark-based functional laboratory Nordic Labs for more specialised assessment of metabolic and nutritional needs. Laboratory testing is only carried out when he feels the need to learn more about the client after the first consultation and the particular lab tests chosen are specific to that individual.
