Free Discovery Call
During this 15 min phone call, we will get to know each other while focusing on what course of action is best suitable for your health related goals.
Duration: 60 mins
During our first session we will deep dive into your personal health history via detailed intake forms, live blood analysis and muscle testing (QRA)
Live blood cell analysis allows both the client and the practitioner to observe living blood through the use of a high resolution darkfield microscope.
Live blood cell analysis can reveal: Dehydration, malabsorption, bowel toxicity, state of immunity, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, poor digestion, hormonal imbalances, pathogenic infections (parasitic, bacterial, fungal), chemical toxicity (i.e. heavy metals), radiation damage, poor circulation, detox status (liver, kidneys, bowel) and more.
Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA) is a verified kinesiological testing modality used to pinpoint present imbalances through various organ and gland systems while providing insight on how to restore balance to your body.
This consultation gives the practitioner an accurate picture of the current state of the clients health, allowing them to develop a custom protocol based on their individual needs.
Duration: 45 mins
This services is only available to clients who have gone through the initial consultation and is recommended 4-8 weeks post service.
Includes: Live blood analysis, quantum reflex analysis.
Metabolic Balance is a customized nutrition program backed with over 25 years of research. The program allows you to achieve metabolic and hormonal balance through the creation of a diet that is based on your blood values, medical history, and personal taste preferences.
Based on this in-depth scientific and innovative understanding, metabolic balance develops your personalized nutrition plan to naturally balance your hormones, enzymes and your bio-chemistry. There is no artificial manipulation of your biochemistry by the usage of injections, shakes, pills or specialized foods.
Metabolic balance is a hormone balancing program that helps you to naturally lose weight and keep it off. The program is an integrated nutritional approach that is based on intensive support alongside an individual nutrition plan.
The clear and simply constructed plan will show:
• which foods should be eaten and which should be avoided
• in what quantities foods should be eaten
• in which combination foods should be eaten
• when and how these foods should be eaten
• how the 4 phases will become a new way of life
Each plan is unique and exists only once. This is because of the way the plans are created using:
• blood values
• personal measurements
• personal details of the client
With this information Metabolic Balance can provide a plan that is tailored to the exact needs of the client and can even include information regarding:
• individual preferences or dislikes
This offers a great opportunity to the growing number of people, who are already following a restricted diet – but also, for those who simply value their health.
Your Metabolic Balance program is completely personalized in order to promote lasting results and an overall healthier lifestyle. While following this program, you will never suffer from extreme feelings of hunger as all of your nutritional needs will be met in order to provide nutritional stability. Your nutritional program will not only select foods based on caloric content, rather, foods will be selected based on your personal hormonal indications, needs and preferences.
DUTCH Hormone Testing
Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones (DUTCH) is a simple at home test that looks at your hormones and how your body processes and metabolizes them.
Hormones are your body's messengers and if they aren't communicating efficiently, you’re probably experiencing some (if not all) of the following symptoms: fatigue, insomnia, depression, anxiety, low libido, and irregular menstrual cycles. The easiest way to understand what’s going on with your hormones, is by testing them.
The DUTCH test looks at your reproductive hormones, stress hormones, androgens (male pattern hormones) and melatonin as well as organic acids – markers for mood and nutritional balance in the body.
This is a 3 month program, includes functional lab testing, a customized protocol (lifestyle, dietary and supplement recommendations), support and guidance.
Hair Mineral Analysis
Hair is an excellent biopsy material. It is easy to sample, easily preserved and transported, represents a soft tissue of the body, and is a storage and eliminative tissue. As hair grows it forms a permanent record of the body’s nutritional deficiencies or excesses.
This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the basis for a nutritional balancing program to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness. By correcting tissue mineral levels and ratios with proper diet, supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioral health conditions can be prevented or reversed.
Minerals screened include electrolytes - calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus and trace minerals - copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, iron, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt and zinc.
Elevated readings can have different meanings depending upon:
· the symptomatolgy of the patient
· the elevated concentration of the mineral in question
· whether a specific treatment, regimen or diet is being followed
· relationships to other elemental readings
Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum.
A very high reading may represent a toxic amount of the mineral in the hair, and/or in the body tissues in general. In the case of a toxic metal, any deposition or accumulation in the hair indicates some degree of toxicity.
High levels of toxic metals inhibit the body’s ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health and have a proven link to many types of diseases.
Food Intolerance Testing
IgG antibody detection is the most sensitive allergy food testing available today.
Whilst simple elimination diets can be used to identify problem foods, this ‘trial and error’ approach is often imprecise and time consuming. It can take a long time to identify the offending foods and achieve long-term health improvements, even with help from a health professional.
Detection of food-specific IgG antibodies is recognized as a reliable method to identify foods that may be causing symptoms and to guide the design of elimination diets based on the IgG antibody results.
The Health Food Sensitivity test is a sensitive and accurate technique that can better detect the presence of IgG food-specific antibodies to over 200 commonly eaten foods.
As part of a quality program, samples are analyzed in duplicates. Results are also semi quantitative, allowing a measure of specific food sensitivities. The flexibility of the testing system permits a number of different panels to be offered.
Increasing Importance of Food Sensitivity
Adverse reactions to foods are causing increasingly more health problems. Approximately 5% of the population is affected by a food allergy, which produces an immediate onset of the symptoms often associated with a ‘allergic response’. However, it is estimated that more than 40% of the population have a delayed type of reaction, which occurs several hours or days after a food is consumed The delay in the appearance of symptoms, makes it difficult to determine which foods could be considered as the trigger of the health problem.
Advantages of the Food Sensitivity Test
finger-Prick Blood Sample: Less invasive than venous blood sample.
quantitative IgG Level: Food reactivity can be compared for optimal dietary planning.
"traffic Light" Results: Easy to Identify the 'problem' foods to avoid.
microarray Technology: Added confidence in results.
choice of Food Panels: Select the most appropriate depending on diet and budget.
Link to chronic complaints
If the small intestine becomes damaged (e.g. by stress, infections and / or medicines), partially digested foods can reach the blood stream. Certain areas of these foods are recognized as ‘antigens’ by the immune system and special IgG antibodies are formed against them. These IgG antibodies bind to the specific food proteins to form immune complexes, which can accumulate in joints, organs and the vascular system. Immune complexes are disseminated by an inflammatory reaction. If this recurs frequently, it can lead to a chronic process and subsequent health conditions.
Common symptoms include
chronic gastro-intestinal problems: irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, bloating
skin problems: itching and psoriasis
depression and anxiety
headaches and migraines
chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia
attention deficit and/or Hyperactivity Disorder
