Various Clinical Tests

Iridology

Iridology is based on the concept that the iris is a map of the human body, with different areas of the eye pertaining to different areas, systems and organs of the body.  Colours, textures and patterns within the iris are all taken into account to assess the health of various aspects of the body.  At Natural Pain Solutions we use iridology as a method to obtain a general overview of a person’s health, in particular to find out areas of weakness and strength.

According to iridology, the eye is a map of the human body.

Food & Environmental Sensitivity Scan

Sneezing, vomiting, skin rashes, itchiness and red eyes are some of the more well-known symptoms of food and environmental sensitivities, but did you know that anxiety and depression can also be a result of sensitivities?  We use our advanced Asyra technology to identify what your body is reacting to right now, and use homoeopathic remedies to help desensitise you to your sensitivities, while at the same time supporting your immune system to a higher level of health, so it can begin to respond more appropriately to food and environmental stimuli.

Comprehensive Physical Examination

An examination where we check blood pressure, heart rate, eyes, ears nose and throat, pupil reflex, lung strength, lymph glands, oxygen levels in the blood and abdominal palpation.

Tongue & Pulse Diagnosis

Tongue and pulse diagnosis are Traditional Chinese Medicine methods of assessing a person’s health.  Scott has been using tongue and pulse diagnosis since 1994.  Tongue diagnosis is very good for assessing digestive patterns of disharmony and long-term deficiencies.  Pulse diagnosis (there are 12 pulses in TCM) is used for assessing meridian and organ imbalances, general nutritional deficiencies, stress, infections, inflammation and congestion.

Bioimpedence Analysis

Measures fluid percentage (has implications for hydration levels in the tissues), fat percentage, muscle weight, bone mass (not density) and metabolic age. 

Bowel Transit Test

Tests how quickly food moves through your digestive system.  If it moves too quickly, you may not be absorbing enough nutrients; if it moves too slowly you may not be eliminating waste correctly and you may experience reabsorption of waste.

HCL (Hydrochloric Acid) Test

Tests the levels of Hydrochloric Acid in your stomach and possible inflammation.  

pH Mineral Buffer Test

Tests how well you are buffering acidic foods in your saliva.  Your enzymes in your saliva work best at a neutral or slightly alkaline pH, so the body uses minerals to buffer acidic foods so that the saliva enzymes can work properly.  This test checks how well this process is working.  If it’s not working effectively it can indicate general mineral deficiencies as your body doesn’t have the requisite minerals to buffer the saliva.  It also allows us to see how well the first process of digestion (mastication) is functioning.

Iodine Patch Test

Checks your iodine levels, which is very important for thyroid function and enabling your endocrine system to communicate effectively. Your body uses iodine to kill infections and bacteria.
