You have learned about Health. What causes ill-health and what keeps you healthy.
You need to discover where your body is.
Then you can act.
You body is not very good at letting you know that you are getting ill. It only tends to let you know when you are ill. When you feel pain, you go to the Doctor. Chances are, you are already ill.
You didn't get ill overnight. Your illness would have developed over time. In the early stages, you would have felt nothing wrong. You were slowly moving towards illness, but were likely not aware.
Often general aches and pains, indigestion, feelings of lethargy or declines in metal capacity and performance are attributed to the natural ageing process. These are common signs of early dysfunction in the body’s systems that can in many instances be reversed and re-optimised. The earlier these traits are identified, the easier they are to address.
Testing for good health
It is perhaps ironic that the same medical tests used by Doctors to diagnose your illness, if applied and interpreted differently, can be used on people who are not ill to determine whether they have started to get ill.
Using similar tests to check your health periodically when you are generally not feeling ill, may pick up early stages of dysfunction in the body that can lead to reduced performance and vitality, and if these are not addressed, future disease.
Benefits of assessing early
If a trend towards ill health is picked up before illness sets in, there is an opportunity to act. Acting early can often reverse the trend towards illness, and restore good health and wellness. It will mostly likely be easier to act on, and cost less than medical interventions when you finally get ill.
Just as important, early identification can allow us to address the root cause of a trend towards illness. Treating illness after the fact is often an exercise in managing symptoms, not treating the root cause.
It probably won't surprise you to learn that your body systems are interconnected and rely on each other. Your heart (a pump), your brain (a computer) and your lungs (an air filter) are three such systems that rely on each other. If one isn’t functioning optimally, it will have a negative effect on the other systems.
This is the principle we use when assessing your health. We are less interested in individual readings like your blood pressure in isolation, more interested in how it relates to other readings from other body systems. This is where the science comes in.
We don't want to overwhelm you with science. If you are a medical academic or just curious, read our Science page to learn more about the peer reviewed medical literature on which we base our work.
What we learnt from the science is that there are hundreds of medical journal articles that explain physiologically how test readings from the body systems interconnect. Put enough of these together, and it is possible to build a picture of what is going on inside your body from a relatively small number of medical readings. That is what we do. That is our 'secret sauce'. (Read more on our history.)
Our process is to help you discover what is going on inside your body. We hope you are well. You are unlikely to be working to your optimum in all aspects of your health. We are both an early warning system for your general health, and also a mechanism for you to learn how you can improve your health.
Our process is as follows :
We invite you in for a 1 hour appointment. This is the start of your health journey.
In that hour, we spend 40 minutes running nine tests which provide us with instant results. No laboratory work is required.
We enter your data into our secure cloud based system, and run a number of calculations. This takes 5 minutes.
A report is produced for you. It is ready for you to read and access there and then.
Our clinician will then spend 15 minutes taking you through the report.
If you are ready
