  • Structural
    • Postural Analysis – This reveals any imbalances in the way you stand, such as imbalances in the hips, shoulders, knees and ankles. These imbalances affect the function of the spine and all parts of the body.
    • Gaitscan – This is a computerized scan of the feet which measures how much pressure is being placed on each bone in the foot as you walk. It also measures how long each bone is in contact with the ground and if it is striking the ground in the correct sequence. The scan also reveals imbalances in weight distribution which may be coming from the knees or lower back.
    • Rehab/Exercise Analysis – Here we analyze which muscles are too tight and which ones are too weak and design a program of stretching and strengthening exercises to balance them out.
  • Blood
    • ABO Blood Type – Based on your blood type appropriate dietary recommendations can be made, as well as determining which foods you should avoid.
    • Candida – This is a yeast which is often naturally occurring in the human digestive tract, however, when it becomes overgrown due to dietary and lifestyle factors it can cause many problems, such as digestive problems, tiredness and achiness, as well as many others. It is often one of the hidden causes in people’s chronic ill health. This test uses a single drop of blood to measure if it contains antibodies to candida, indicating an overgrowth problem.
    • Cholesterol – This test uses muscle testing and isodes to check with problems in your levels of LDL- so called “bad cholesterol”, HDL- or “good cholesterol”, as well as oxidized cholesterol and total cholesterol levels. The testing also indicates what is needed to balance the body’s cholesterol regulation system.
    • Celiac – This test uses a single drop of blood to detect antibodies to wheat, indicating an allergy, known as celiac’s disease. This can cause many symptoms and is an ofen undiagnosed factor in many health challenges.
    • Helicobacter – This test uses a single drop of blood to detect antibodies to Helicobacter Pylori, indicating the presence of these bacteria in the stomach. They have been found to be the underlying cause of stomach ulcers and other stomach problems.
    • Viral – This test is a NIS (Neurological Integration System) protocol which uses a drop of blood to identify the presence and location of viral infection in the body. It also activates the immune system to begin the bodies own natural response.
  • Urine
    • pH – This test measures the acidity or alkalinity of the body. Most people are too acid, and this can be a major contributor to health problems and inflammation.
    • Heavy Metals – This test measures the urine for the presence of damaging heavy metals in the body. These metals can interfere with many aspects of health.
    • Parasites – This test measures proteins in the urine, which are a result of bacterial and parasite metabolism in the gut. My measuring the level of these proteins we can assess the degree of the problem in the intestine. These gut problems can cause many symptoms, often including lower back pain.
    • Vitamin C – By detecting the vitamin C levels in the urine we can measure the levels of this important nutrient in the blood. Vitamin C protects the body in many ways through its antioxidant properties, but it is particularly important for the health of out vein, artery and capillary walls.
  • Metabolic
    • Zinc – This is an essential nutrient for growth and repair, as well as many other health functions. Chronic zinc deficiency has been identified in a large percentage of the Australian population, and has been shown to be a causative factor in many forms of slow healing.
    • Thyroid – By measuring iodine levels, as well as other symptoms of thyroid imbalance we can get a picture of thyroid function. Iodine is essential for healthy thyroid function. The thyroid regulates many aspects of metabolism, including weight control and temperature regulation.
  • Allergy
    • Food Intolerances – These are foods that your body is able to tolerate up to a certain limit, above that they begin to cause problems. Wheat and dairy are common examples.
    • True Immunoglobulin Allergies – These are true allergies where the immune system recognizes the food as a deadly invader. These foods should be avoided completely, as even a small amount is enough to trigger the full response.
    • Full Allergy Screen – Here we test for a full range of common allergens, as well as testing anything that a client may suspect triggers their allergies.
  • Genetic
    • Polymorphism Screen – Using isode vials and kinesiology we can screen for common genetic mutations or points of damage. These are known as SNIPS (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms). They can occur as a result of someone in your ancestry having a particular virus, as well as by other means. These SNIPS can cause problems with the way our body processes vitamins, leading to chronic deficiency, even when the diet is good. This can be the underlying cause of many health issues.
  • Kinesiological
    • Chemicals/Pesticides – A screening test for common chemicals and pesticides that have been found to affect health. Virtually everybody in our society has some level of these toxins found in their system. They can affect many systems in the body, often including the brain and liver. This test also allows us to find what is needed to eliminate these toxic substances from the body.
    • Full Hearth Health Check – This test includes heart function, cholesterol levels, blood vessel integrity and a screening method that can give warning of the possibility of the “silent heart attack”- cases where there are no obvious warning symptoms.
