MetaBiome™ Microbiome

An easy non invasive test that determines your current bacteria (microbiome), what species you have, what are out of balance (think thrush/candida) and what you may need more of.

The MetaBiome™ test utilises comprehensive microbiome assessment technology that provides a complete picture of the bacteria within the gut and their functional potential.

By sequencing the whole genome, the test can identify individual genes in the bacteria that may contribute to the function of that bacteria and the related influence on overall health.

A balance microbiome is linked to disease prevention and getting yours right is essential for optimal health, wellness and prevention of disease.

The cost includes the Test kit, Consult (30 mins), report & Interpretation.

Infrared Sauna

Saunas are fantastic for detoxification, weight loss, increasing circulation, relieving body aches and pain.

Infrared is a safe wavelength of light/energy which we feel in the body as heat. Infrared works by heating the body directly, this creates a cardiovascular workout whilst removing heavy metals and toxins.

Infrared is different to steam or hot rock saunas in that it heats the body at a lower more comfortable temperature.

You can read more about Infrared benefits here

The best brand saunas are iHealth and Sunlighten. Our sauna is a iHealth. Click on the links for more info.

Other saunas use toxic glues to manufacture and have inferior Infrared panels – They emit high levels of EMF and defeat the purpose of having the detoxifying sauna!

We offer a 60 minute sauna followed by a plunge in our lovely salt water pool (if you want!).

Bring your bathers, a towel and at least 2 litres of filtered water. Filtered water is free and available on request.

I also recommend adding sea/himalayan salt to your water.

This price is for existing clients only.

Non Clients are $49

Metabolic (Metabolism) Testing

This test requires you to be fasted for more than 5 hours and for a maximum of 13 hours.

The metabolism test tells me how well your mitochondria are functioning and gives a detailed report. Your mitochondria are the energy production organelles that produce the energy (ATP). This is used by the cells in your body.

The test includes a Metascan to determine fat, muscle, hydration, inflammation and other parameters that are useful to track progress.

The machine is called an ECAL.
It is registered as a medical device within Europe (CE) and Australia (TGA).

You will receive a detailed metabolism report that gives recommendations based on the results. Some common recommendations are –

  • Dietary calorie control
  • Lifestyle changes such as type of exercise
  • Additional blood testing suggested

    *Please note a treatment plan with dietary plan is not included but can easily be obtained via adding an initial consultation.

As a stand alone report it is $149 and the appointment time is 30-45 minutes.


MetaScan™ is a form of BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) that uses a non invasive technology to determine the health of your cells, inflammation, nutrient status, hydration, fat content and muscle mass in your body.

This device is used to establish a base line and monitor over time your overall health, weight maintenance/loss, monitor healthy ageing and inflammation.

This is a 30 minute appointment. You need to be fasted for a minimum of 3 hours.

This appointment is $79 and includes the detailed report and interpretation.

Bio-Compatibility Test

The Bio-Compatibility System is based on the way that individual foods or household items affect the body. If the body is being affected by a substance that is biologically incompatible, the cells cannot function optimally.

The 500 Item Hair Test identifies the influence that each of the 500 items have on an individual to determine which substances may not be compatible and should be avoided. The list covers all the food groups including gluten-free and health food items, bathroom, laundry, and kitchen products, and it includes local and common brands found in Australian supermarkets.

The test is non-invasive, making it perfect for anyone including adults, children and even babies.  All that is required is a small sample of hair (coloured hair is fine). Saliva can also be used.

The Report includes

  • The Test kit
  • A detailed report with results for over 500+ items
  • Instructions to help you implement the programme correctly
  • General information on the different food groups
  • A “Progression Diary” for you to record daily changes
  • Follow up appointment to ensure you are on the right track


$329 for the test, report, Interpretation and instructions on implementation. As mentioned above, you will also get one follow up appointment via zoom, skype or phone.

Additional foods from specific supermarkets can be added for $30 each. see lists attached.

Naturopaths look at all of your presenting symptoms to discover the imbalances and causes of your health problems. Getting to the source of the symptoms are key to recovery. Anything else is just a band aid and temporary.

I can’t recommend Racquel highly enough. She really shows great care for your health and well-being. She is also so very good at what she does. She has made such a huge difference in my life from the herbs she makes up for me which I call the magic formula. I have tried so many products and wasted so much time and money on things that don’t work. Then I came to Racquel. A magic concoction was put together and within days it was like I another person with more energy and a healthy gut and feeling better all round. Thank you Racquel!
