Why we do this?

Because your body is unique and we want you to live your life with renewed vigour and purpose.

Testing offers insight into root causes of Chronic diseases. They are “the messengers from the future”. Chronic diseases are often complex. We believe in moving beyond treating symptoms and focus on revealing the root causes of chronic diseases.

Testing helps us to understand our bodies better and educates us in taking care of ourselves through modifiable lifestyle intervention - thus greatly reducing the chances of future diseases, medication or even surgery.

Diseases simply just don’t suddenly appear. The biological changes start long before the symptoms appear. Identifying these changes early gives us an assurance of how healthy we are, but also gives us a valuable window of time to take appropriate action needed and refrain from activities and lifestyle which endangers their health and quality of life.

Laboratory tests reveal who we really are - physically unique individuals, the sum of numerous biochemical systems. The study of these systems grants us perspective into how we live and how we feel. To know your body is to know your self. With this knowledge we can make informed decisions on how to alter our habits to better our lives.

The Human Body and Impedance

Body composition is a method of describing what the body is made of. It includes fat, protein, minerals and body water. It also describes weight more accurately than BMI. Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage. This can help validate services like personal training, patient care, and corporate wellness.

PHASE ANGLE

Assess cellular health to assess surgical risks and outcomes Phase angle, a measure of how the cells respond to the electrical currents used to measure body composition, reflects cell membrane integrity and has been linked to survival in various oncological populations. When cells are healthy, they are better able to resist these currents utilised by the InBody, resulting in a higher phase angle. Monitor nutritional status of cardiac patients

DIABETES

Body Composition is a valuable tool understand their overweight patients or patients with risk factors associated with diabetes. Information such as body fat percentage, total body water, lean body mass and visceral fat area. Visceral fat area having an important contribution to diabetics because of the association between high visceral fat levels and diabetes.

CARDIO VASCULAR DISEASE

Body composition is important for understanding a patient’s cardiovascular health. High blood volume, increased water levels in the body, strains on the heart are all issues that stem from conditions like obesity. Visceral fat estimate that has been linked to increased risk of hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

Who Should Be Measured ?

  • At all check-ups as the normal check-up values do not include the superordinate autonomic regulation. Frequently, all check-up values are alright. However, the autonomic imbalance shows the organs and organ systems are being regulated at a maximum tension level.

  • With every stressed out patient to be able to objectively assess how his body can handle stress.

  • With all diabetics to be able to assess the risk of a cardiac diabetic neuropathy. Due to the simplified illustration, there is an increased compliance.

  • With all cardiovascular patients that are medicated to be able to assess the drug dose and the risk for secondary diseases.

  • With every patient at risk for a CHD. Many studies have proven that the ANS Analysis is a great tool for risk assessment of existing or initiating CHD.

  • With every patient with sleep disorders. You can assess if the sleep disorder already had a negative impact on the autonomic regulation and how you should adjust the therapy.

  • With patient for therapy monitoring, regardless of conventional medicine, naturopathic treatment or if the patient had changed his lifestyle.

Analysis of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)

No other assessment can catch developing diseases at an earlier stage. The ANS Analysis measures the Autonomic Nervous System Heart Rate Variability (HRV). A great non-invasive tool for prevention and risk assessments

ANS Analysis is a very simple and fast method to show how well our body’s primary control centre the Autonomic Nervous System is working and performing its regulatory duties.

ANS Analysis measures the degree of fluctuations in length of intervals between heart beats. For healthy people, HRV shows a fluctuation in heart rate (demonstrating adaptability to environment) while unhealthy people have a simple and consistent heart rate. HRV measures the adaptability of the cardiovascular system and the autonomic nervous system.

Blood Chemistry Cardio-metabolics for Assessing CVD and Diabetes Risk

Lipid Profile

Dyslipidaemia describes abnormal amounts of cholesterol and/or triglycerides in blood. It is one of many risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, hypertension, age, or family history of early heart disease that can lead to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). Generally, dyslipidaemia occurs when any of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol or triglycerides is elevated or HDL cholesterol is low.

HbA1c – Diabetes

Diabetes constitutes a heavy burden for the patient and society. It is associated with many complications and increased mortality. We offer a monitoring system for the measurement of HbA1c blood levels; an important parameter in glucose control.Haemoglobin A1c, often abbreviated HbA1c, is a form of hHaemoglobin (a blood pigment that carries oxygen) that is bound to glucose.

C-reactive Protein (CRP)

CRP predicts Heart Disease and Cancer risk. C-reactive Protein or CRP, is a sensitive marker of inflammation. It rises quickly after an inflammatory attack, but should return to normal levels. When CRP remains high, it is an indication of chronic inflammation. Chronic Inflammation has been implicated as a root cause of many Chronic diseases and management of inflammation significantly reduces the risk of future diseases

Cardio-metabolic

A comprehensive evaluation of cardiovascular risk, measuring various important markers such as cholesterol, triglycerides and homocysteine, as well as key inflammatory markers. This unique test combines both traditional and cutting-edge indicators of cardiovascular health that can often be corrected with nutritional intervention.

Biotransformation – Detoxification

The Toxic Element Clearance Profile is a toxic exposure test which measures urinary excretion of a diverse range of potentially harmful elements. Both well-known toxics such as Lead and Mercury and new technology toxins such as niobium are assessed in this toxic element test

Hormones

Hormones play a powerful role in the body’s regulatory system. Proper hormonal balance is essential to maintain optimal health and plays a crucial role in how one feels. Testosterone, for example enhances sex drive, strengthens bone and muscle tissue and reduces fat production.

Male Hormone Health

The Male Hormonal Health Test is a hormonal test which provides a focused overview of hormonal balance in men. Using a single serum sample, this test evaluates the dynamics of sex steroid metabolism that can profoundly affect a man’s health throughout his lifetime.

Complete Hormones

Complete Hormones is the most comprehensive urinary hormone profile and is designed to assist with the clinical management of hormone-related symptoms in both males and females. This profile assesses parent hormones and their metabolites as well as key metabolic pathways, provides insight into the contribution

Structural Integrity

The Bone Reabsorption Assessment is a simple urinary test that provides an accurate assessment of the rate of bone turnover in an individual. The Bone Reabsorption Assessment allows the practitioner to identify those more likely to develop osteoporosis, to intervene before significant loss has occurred and to monitor the efficacy of treatment regimens.
