HEALTH OPTIMISATION THROUGH A NEW LENSE

Your journey to health starts with specific laboratory-based investigations.  

This allows us to attain the crucial information required to develop an evidenced-informed, personalised approach to achieve your health goals.

HAVE YOU INVESTIGATED THE UNDERLYING ISSUE?

If you have any of these symptoms:

  • Weight gain despite efforts to lose weight
  • Fatigue
  • Tiredness after eating
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Joint pain
  • Digestive issues (consipation / diarrhoea / bloating / reflux)
  • Brain Fog
  • Sleep disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Then nutrition, appropriate exercise, sleep hygiene, stress management and environmental exposures obviously play a major role in improving your health. 

But without investigating the underlying reasons as to why the above issues are presenting, any arbitrary dietary/lifestyle plan will be futile or temporary at best.  

    A TAILORED PLAN   

MEASURING YOUR METABOLIC MARKERS IS ESSENTIAL TO DEVELOP A TAILORED PLAN

Measuring important Metabolic Markers is the baseline laboratory evaluation recommended prior to anyone undertaking a comprehensive health optimisation strategy.

It provides a comprehensive overview of important metabolic markers (biomarkers) that inform the steps required to maximise your personal health outcomes.  

Accumulation of specific biomarkers on this laboratory analysis often signal an issue which can be due to:

  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Neurotransmitter metabolism issue(s)
  • Malabsorption issue
  • An inherited enzyme defect
  • Toxic build-up
  • Bacterial or fungal dysbiosis
  • Drug effect

HOW AND WHAT IS MEASURED?

This comprehensive assessment measures more than 70 metabolic biomarkers produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter breakdown, and intestinal microbial activity. 

Since these biomarkers are present in urine at often 100 times their concentration in serum, they are commonly tested in urine and rarely in blood. 

    COMMON QUESTIONS 

WHY DO WE NEED IT?

This test provides very useful information to inform your personalise your health optimisation strategy. 

If you are feeling off, or not functioning at your best, this test has the capacity to provide valuable insights in to potential underlying physiological imbalances.

WHY HASN’T MY DOCTOR DONE THIS TEST ON ME YET?

The conventional medical model is exceptionally good at managing acute illness. The test and interventions we are discussing here are not intended to replace your standard medical care. You should always follow the advice of your primary care physician for diagnosis and treatment of acute conditions and chronic diseases.

What we are looking at here, is the very different and complex scientific field of health optimisation. The goal of these tests is to detect imbalances (not to diagnose disease), correct these imbalances and work towards health optimisation.

    INVEST IN HEALTH

THE BEST VALUE PER DOLLAR THAT YOU CAN INVEST IN YOUR HEALTH

This test is extremely accurate and measures over 70 crucial biomarkers related to your health. The outcomes of which directly inform the appropriate course of action when interpreted by a skilled practitioner. 

When you think about the amount of time, money, blood, sweat and tears invested in misdirected, futile attempts at improving health blindly without any data the costs are astonishing! 

In comparison, the cost of the test pales in to significance. 

THE FOUNDATIONAL PIECE OF A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH

Due to the profound impact that this test has on informing the short- and long-term treatment protocols, it is the foundational piece of your health optimisation strategy.  

As such, in order to pursue your personal health optimisation journey, it is strongly recommended that STEP 1 is to undertake the Metabolic Markers test which allows us to:

DETECT: reveal hidden imbalances

CORRECT: with targeted nutrition and lifestyle interventions  

OPTIMISE: with practical, systematic, personalised treatment plan based on your comprehensive metabolic picture
