A range of tests can be conducted on-site, providing immediate feedback to form a clear picture of your current state of health. All of this information assists me to work out the best treatment plan tailored to your needs.
VLA Test - Vitality, Longevity and Healthy Aging
Have you ever wondered how old your body thinks it is? This incredibly quick and useful tool can assess your current biological age - you might be able to brag that you're five years younger or set yourself a target to drop two years! A finely tuned machine, it measures how your tissues resist and react to a small electrical pulse revealing a host of fascinating information such as, the amount of fluid in your system.
- Do your cells look like healthy grapes or shrivelled sultanas?
- The amount of fat compared to the amount of muscle.
- The quality of your tissues - are you running on a home brand or Duracell battery?
Iridology - Analysis of the Iris
The coloured part of the eye, the iris, can reveal a lot about a person's health history and potential strengths and weaknesses. Often changes in the body are reflected in changes in the appearance of the iris. Using a specially modified high resolution camera, I'll take a photo of your iris which I'll analyse against iris charts. This is done as part of an initial consultation.
This quick test reveals your current zinc level. Every process in our body requires a chemical reaction and over 300 rely on zinc; everything from having the right amount of stomach acid to how quickly you heal if you cut yourself. If you're running low on zinc, you will benefit from increasing your intake either through eating zinc-rich foods or, if necessary, taking a supplement.
Blood is carried from the heart to all parts of your body in vessels called arteries. Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. A normal blood pressure reading is around 120 / 80. The first number indicates how much pressure is in the arteries when the heart is pumping. The second number indicates how much pressure is in the arteries when the heart is at rest.
Urinary Indicans Test
A urine test is an accurate, simple and inexpensive screening tool which measures the state of proteins in the gastro intestinal tract, that is, are they putrefying (rotting)? If you are having tummy troubles this test can point us in the right direction for treatment.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
Taking a small snippet of hair and sending it off for analysis will test for heavy metals and mineral imbalances in your system. This is a great tool to understand which beneficial minerals your body is lacking, so you can seek them through food or, if necessary, supplements.
Blood Type Testing
A very helpful tool, especially when you're not thriving on your current diet. Discover which foods to eat for your blood type and what to avoid.
