At LIFE Health Centre, Melinda uses various analysis devices and further testing in order to deliver an individual health program based on your needs.
VegaTest Expert is an electro-dermal testing device to determine where energetic imbalances lie within the body. It is a non-invasive machine in which the client is stimulated with energetic signature patterns stored in the system which a reading is taken with the probe. The VegaTest expert is particularly useful for:
DNA testing is a sophisticated, investigative tool which helps to identify variations in your genes. It provides a more informed approach towards health and lifestyle decisions. Results are provided in an in-depth report, outlining the potential effects of specific gene variations, called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). This understanding helps Melinda to develop more targeted and effective treatment protocols. Researchers have found that SNPs may help identify dietary, lifestyle and supplemental changes that can be made to optimise overall health outcomes.
Bio-Impedance Analysis (BIA) may also be used in the consultation to determine an individuals body composition. It is a non-invasive monitoring tool which is useful for all sorts of health programs including weight loss and weight gain programs. It shows levels of the following:
This is useful information for Melinda when working out specific requirements for your health program. It is also great for keeping people focused and motivated to achieve their health goals.Results will be given to each patient and can be particularly useful for those individuals who are already on a fitness regime, to target specific needs with the help of their trainer.
The skin, hair, nails and tongue can be excellent indicators of the health of the body. Melinda will look at each of these body signs to determine areas of health improvement.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
If required, further testing will be performed through Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis which is a safe and non-invasive pathology test. It measures the levels and comparative ratios of nutrient and toxic minerals found in hair.
Minerals are essential for growth, healing, vitality and wellbeing. They provide structural support in bones and teeth, and they maintain the body's pH and water balance, nerve activity, muscle contractions, energy production and enzyme reactions. They are the basic ‘spark plugs' of life.
Ideally we should get all the minerals we need from a balanced diet. Unfortunately today this is rarely possible. Modern farming techniques, fertilisers and depleted soils reduce the mineral content of foods. Environmental pollutants, chemical food additives and stressful lifestyles also have a detrimental effect on our nutritional status.
Many health conditions are aggravated by mineral imbalances and toxic metal excesses, including cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, learning difficulties and hyperactivity in children, to name just a few.
Hair analysis food compatibility test
Further testing for food compatibilty can be performed if needed. The hair sample is sent off and then tested using modern, electronic equipment to measure your body's compatibility against a standard list of 500+ common local food and household products - including all food groups, and bathroom, laundry and kitchen products.
The test results highlight which foods and products are right for YOUR body and which are not. Feeding your body correctly frees up your immune system to deal with any other issues more effectively.
The Bio-Compatibility System complements and integrates easily with the Vega testing as it offers a more exhaustive list of food and household products for those that need it. There is also a comprehensive test list for babies and pets.
PLEASE NOTE: Those people who are pregnant, have severe heart arrhythmias or blockages, pacemaker or have labile circulation or a weak heart should NOT be Vega tested. Naturopathic consults can be tailored not to include the Vega testing.
