Health Assessment Clinic
The human body is composed of over 100 trillion cells, each of which requires adequate nutrition to thrive and function properly. A cell’s ability to absorb nutrients and thus function efficiently is completely due to the 10,000 different types of enzymes that catalyze reactions in each cell.
Inappropriate diets, stress, disease, inappropriate lifestyles, and lack of exercise weaken our body’s natural enzyme activity. This negatively impacts our nutrition and ultimately our health. Our intention is to address the underlying health issues you may have, not just address your symptoms.
The combination of our tests and consultations aim to:
1. Assess nutritional status at the cellular level
2. Identify potential enzyme deficiencies and/or need for enzyme therapy
3. Identify how stress is impacting your cellular health before symptoms may present themselves
4. Identify how a condition or disease is impacting your entire body
5. Chart progress
6. Assess effectiveness of therapies, supplements, enzymes, and diet.
7. Be able to adjust therapies as changes occur in routine testing and results
We use a clinical tool to assess the body’s internal environment.
It defines the overall status of our biochemistry based upon the evaluation of blood, urine, and saliva parameters for pH, rH2 (oxidative stress), and r (resistivity or mineral concentration).
Biological age is also determined from rH2 (oxidative stress) and is influenced by emotional, physical, physiological and mental stress. The results produce a suggested nutritional therapy protocol, and highlights stressed or burdened organs and systems through a comprehensive physiology graphic.
• Decipher ways to address the source of issues and not just treat the symptoms.
• Increase and maintain energy levels.
• Increase the effectiveness of the immune system and hinder the entrance of diseases.
• Strengthen your body’s ability to handle stress and anxiety.
Body Compositition Analysis
The Body Composition Analysis (BCA) utilizes bioelectrical impedance and advanced software to assess body composition. Assessing and monitoring the following factors are essential for understanding the effectiveness of an overall wellness program.
• BCM (muscle) weight and % of total body
• ECM (extracellular mass) weight and % of total body
• FAT weight and % of total body
• BMI (Body Mass Index)
• TBW (Total Body Water) volume and % of total body
• ICW (Intracellular Water) volume and % of total body
• ECW (Extracellular Water) volume and % of total body
• Phase Angle – health of cellular structures
• Capacitance – strength of cellular membranes
• BMR – Basal Metabolic Rate
• Calorie Expenditure based on Exercise Program
The BCA compares actual measurements to “ideal” measurements based on age, exercise level, height, weight, and sex:
The BCA also has the ability to track initial and subsequent tests to provide a complete profile of your progress.
Cholestech LDX® System
The Cholestech LDX® System is an assessment tool that measures cholesterol, liver function and blood glucose levels.
A blood sample is acquired from a simple finger prick and is analyzed quickly to provide results within 15 minutes.
The lipid profile consists of Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, non-HDL, Triglycerides, and TC/HDL ratio.
The liver function test consists of AST and ALT measurements.
The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) recommends a lipid profile as the initial test for coronary heart disease.
Biochemical-Individualistic Profiling (BIP), also known as body typing, can provide insights into nutritional and enzyme deficiencies. A client's body type is determined by measuring the bone structure in the shoulder and hips, by measuring the waist diameter, and by assessing personality traits, body composition, and diet habits. After identifying your body type, we can then address current and potential enzyme deficiencies and imbalances.
One of the major reasons any body type suffers weaknesses and becomes out of balance is due to enzyme deficiencies. Although enzyme deficiencies are inherited, they can be compounded through poor eating habits and inappropriate lifestyles if not addressed in a timely manner.
