Advanced Blood Chemistry
Created by renowned naturopath and academic Dr. Kimberly Balas, Advanced Blood Chemistry helps ascertain root causes of the body’s internal imbalances through specially devised algorithms. This tool allows practitioners to find patterns or subclinical markers within the different numbers to establish potential health problems an individual is predisposed to. With this information, practitioners can help rebalance and optimise the body’s innate ability to heal itself.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Heavy Metal Toxicity)
Mercury is ever-present in our environment. Farmed fish and even dental fillings (called silver amalgams) in our mouths are sources of exposure. It has many negative effects on neurological tissue, kidneys, and the immune system. Mercury also reduces glutathione content in the body leading to less ability of the body to rid itself of other toxins.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is a comprehensive report that uncovers metal and mineral level status. It encompasses information on the standard range of vital minerals needed for overall development as well as various heavy metals, which are known to interfere with this. The accumulation of heavy metals can be toxic and insidious because symptoms do not always manifest. Elevated levels left untreated disturb the metabolic processes of essential minerals, which may give rise to associated conditions like fatigue and depression. Once recognised, corrective therapy can be employed to help re-establish a normal biochemical balance.
Food Allergy Testing
Allergies can be the cause of inflammation, digestive disorders, skin issues, respiratory problems and mucous build-up. Food allergies in particular have been linked to a leaky gut, and ignoring them can actually trigger and worsen symptoms over time. Symptoms of food sensitivities include fatigue, migraines, atopic dermatitis, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, recurrent infections, ADD/ADHD, acne, food cravings, obesity, arthritis, asthma, sinusitis and nasal congestion. Our food intolerance testing comprises up to 150 foods and can also include testing for moulds, food additives and colourings, as well as environmental chemicals. With a change of diet, and elimination of these offending substances, clients often experience positive changes and find relief for their conditions.
Iridology is the study of the iris. Iridologists assess the variations of colour and fibre structure to assess the constitutional strength of the physical body, as well as aspects of the personality, which can be influenced by conscious and subliminal emotional patterns. By studying and understanding nerve fibre density, colour changes and other signs in the iris and sclera, the naturopath has an insight into which systems in your body are under stress and thus is better able to focus your treatment.
A complete iris analysis can show whether a person has general good health or poor, depending upon the density of the iris fibres. Patterns, structures, colours, degrees of lightness and darkness in the iris tell if an area of the body is strong or weak. Toxic accumulation levels, nutritional and chemical imbalances can be observed as well.
