Health+

Enhanced Package for Health & Wellness

In addition to markers in the Health package the following are also included;

Lipid Peroxides.

In its efforts to produce the chemical energy necessary to power cells and fight infection, your body makes harmful chemicals called free radicals. These free radicals break down the lipid components of cell membranes, forming lipid peroxides. Antioxidant nutrients help protect your cells against this process. The lipid peroxide test shows if you are getting enough antioxidants. High levels of lipid peroxides are associated with cancer, heart disease, stroke and ageing.

Bloodspot™ Fatty Acids

While there is much discussion of the impact of fats on health, the positive benefits associated with "good fats" are often overlooked. Achieving the optimum balance of good fats, or essential fatty acids minimizes inflammation, a major risk in heart disease and cancer. A proper balance of fatty acids is also necessary for proper brain development and nervous system function. This unique test includes the AA/EPA ratio a measure of silent inflammation that can lead to heart disease. In addition, this profile can show if you are consuming the right amount of fish oils. Too much can lead to increased free radical oxidation and suppression of your immune system.

 

Bloodspot™ IgG Food Allergies

Research estimates that a large percentage of the U.K population suffers from "hidden" food reactions. These are difficult to identify since they can occur hours or even days after consuming an offending food. Symptoms can be extraordinarily diverse, ranging from arthritis to eczema to migraines. For that reason, it is important to consider food allergy or intolerances when evaluating health concerns. The Bloodspot™ IgG Food profile tests for sensitivity to the most commonly positive foods and helps you design a diet that eliminates and/or alternates the offending foods, alleviating your symptoms.

Nutritional Elements

Extensively studied, nutritional elements have been well identified and are considered essential for many biological functions in the human body. They play key roles in such metabolic processes as muscular activity, endocrine function, reproduction, skeletal integrity and overall development.

Toxic Elements

The toxic elements or “heavy metals” are well known for their interference upon normal biochemical function. They are commonly found in the environment and therefore are present, to some degree, in all biological systems. However, these metals clearly pose a concern for toxicity when accumulation occurs in excess.

Laboratory Tests include:
