During our standard clinical testing phase we investigate your health issues in depth using specific tests & procedures which will help to further build your Total Health Care Plan.
These tests/observastions offer real evidence based findings and help you to achieve your maximum energy levels, peaceful sleep or other symptoms you might be experiencing that are contributing to your current symptoms of poor health.
Physical examination Includes
Depending on your symptoms we may use immune, Vitamins, Metals, Amino Acids, Enzymes or Essential Fatty Acids vials of specific homeopathic substances to detect underlying stress via muscle Biofeedback.
Preliminary Heavy Metal testing
Used to detect high levels of ionic metals including copper, mercury, zinc, lead or cadmium; Using a chemical called ‘dithazone’ we can ‘paint’ these heavy metals with a colour making the metal poisoning visible.
The dithazone reacts differently to each metal, tests also helps us to determine if Full HMA (Hair Mineral Analysis) is required.
Urinary PH (Acid/Alkaline) test
The pH of the urine indicates how the body is working to maintain the proper pH of the blood. The urine reveals the alkaline building (anabolic) and acid tearing down (catabolic) cycles.
The pH of urine indicates the efforts of the body via the kidneys, adrenals, lungs and gonads to regulate body pH balance through the buffer salts and hormones. Urine can provide a fairly accurate picture of body chemistry, because the kidneys filter out the buffer salts of pH regulation and provide values based on what the body is eliminating.
Urine pH can vary from around 4.5 to 9.0 for its extremes, but the ideal range is 6.5 to 7.0+
The urinalysis is a set of screening tests that can detect some common diseases. It may be used to screen for and/or help diagnose conditions such as a urinary tract infections, kidney disorders, liver problems, diabetes or other metabolic conditions, to name a few.
A urinalysis is comprised of several chemical, microscopic and visual examinations used to detect cells, cell fragments and substances such as crystals or casts in the urine associated with the various conditions listed above. It can detect abnormalities that might require follow-up investigation and additional testing.
Often, substances such as protein or glucose will begin to appear in the urine before people are aware that they may have a problem.
This simple test procedure gives the client the opportunity to taste a substance, a lowered sense of taste and smell has been strongly linked to zinc deficiency.
Zinc assists the immune system - reducing the severity and duration of colds and flu, helps metabolise protein and carbohydrates, it’s used in majority of chemical reactions within the body, helps maintain healthy skin, hair and nails and may assist in healthy development of motor and attention skills.
Blood pressure check
Checking your blood pressure regularly is an essential step in understanding how healthy your heart and vascular system are.
High blood pressure can have no obvious signs or symptoms but if chronic may lead to serious health concerns such as stroke, kidney disease, heart failure and heart attack.
Alternatively a low BP can lead to lethargy, fainting or be a sign of dehydration; understanding what your normal BP is can help you keep your health in check for the future.
