Tests Included in an initial Advanced Scientific Naturopathic Consultation:
- Dark field Microscopy
- Blood pressure
- Tongue Analysis
- Nail analysis
- Clinical observations
In an initial 75 minute Advanced Scientific Naturopathy consultation, you will experience a very comprehensive case-taking and clinical observations will be employed. Some of the clinical observations undertaken are Blood Pressure, Nail Analysis, Tongue analysis and Dark Field Microscopy.
Dark Field Microscopy is performed by taking a tiny blood sample in the form of a finger prick and placing it under the microscope. Through this process your Naturopath will be able to see the health of your body on a systemic level. Once all relevant information is attained, an individualised and effective treatment plan will be both written and explained to you. The Natural and Biological medicines that may be prescribed will support and stimulate the healing power of nature in the least invasive and most effective way. An Advanced Scientific Naturopath will educate, inspire and motivate you to take responsibility for your health by encouraging you to adopt a healthy attitude, lifestyle and diet.
VLA Quadscan is an ARTG registered, bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) medical device, which measures your body composition and helps your VLA practitioner monitor your fluid distribution and cellular health. VLA Quadscan is unique amongst BIA devices in that it uses four different electrical frequencies to measure body composition, which improves the accuracy of the measurements when determining the amount of fat versus lean muscle mass that you have. This is particularly helpful for monitoring the efficacy of your fat loss programs, ensuring you are losing fat, not just fluid or muscle. Monitoring fluid distribution of the body can provide clues about disease processes that are occurring in your body, i.e. more fluid outside and less fluid inside the cells is the pattern we would expect to see during inflammation and other disease processes. Monitoring cellular health gives further clues into your overall health status, i.e. cellular health is eroded by oxidative stress, inflammation and nutritional deficiencies. Once a VLA Quadscan test has been completed you will receive a VLA report of findings that can be used to design an individualised treatment program to help you with your fat loss goals and achieve vitality, longevity and healthy ageing.
