for Your Natural Well-
1) Analysis of your Physiological Profile and Nutritional Needs:
a. Medical and Family history: we review your medical and family history, to evaluate all possible genetic and non-
b. Eating and Life habits: we take a detailed review of your eating and life habits in order to maximise your compliance. This is an important step to determine an appropriate dietetic approach.
c. Full Lipid and Glucose Blood profile: this quantitative blood test, by spectroscopy technology, evaluates in few minutes the level of Glucose in your blood (GLU), Total Cholesterol (CHOL), High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL), Triglycerides (TRIG), Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL), calculated ratio of CHOL/HDL and TRIG/HDL. Associate with the measure of your blood pressure, this test can evaluate your risk of coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease as well.
d. Food Allergies and Intolerance test: using double patterns of highly specific antibodies for a large numbers of different foods, beverages, preservatives and additives commonly used by food industries, we will be able to detect by a fingertip blood prick the food IG antibodies. Thanks to the latest bio-
e. Urine Test: this quantitative in-
f. Heavy Metals test: this is a preliminary determination of the presence of cadmium, cobalt, copper, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, zinc in a sample of your urine. This is an important test because heavy metals are strongly associated with excessive free radical activity, which can cause damage to the healthy state of the body including depleting the body's immune system.
g. Vitamin D test: this is a chromatographic immunoassay with high specificity, accuracy and sensitivity for the detection of vitamin D levels in human blood, as a preliminary analytical determination of 25(OH) vitamin D deficiency. This is an important test because a lot of evidence suggests that adults with deficiency of vitamin D are at risk of bone fractures, Parkinson’s disease, depression, impaired mood, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
2) Analysis of your body composition:
a. Segmental Body Composition: using precision state-
b. Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis: we measure the body composition by sending a low, safe electrical current through the body. The current passes through the fluids contained in muscle, bone, fat and connective tissues. The different degree of electrical resistance as it passes through the body produces a quantitative measure of body composition. We use SF-
c. Skinfold Analysis: taking skinfold measurements is a method to determine body fat composition and also the elasticity of skin which is an important element of a healthy body. For accurate measurement we use highly-
d. Measurement of body circumferences: we measure specific anatomical sites around the body with a tape measure to analyse your body and general health
