The Scope and Nature of Integral Health Services.

A comprehensive set of intensive diagnostics is an important next step in your wellness management.  The evaluation process is about self-discovery. It exposes your total health picture, not just a mere snapshot; it also establishes your hormonal and metabolic baseline, which helps us determine any hormonal deficiencies, hormonal dysfunctional states and nutritional imbalances based on the lack or excess of certain nutrients, heavy metals and toxic substances. Presence of mold can also dramatically affect the function and levels of certain hormones and essential processes in our body.

Part One:  Comprehensive Health Questionnaire

This information reflects the perception of your physical and mental health. It also captures significant events in your health profile and offers information to the physician. Information is  placed  in context with the In Depth Laboratory Screen and Diagnostic Assessment.

Part Two:  In Depth Laboratory Screen

Includes important biomarkers of aging, biomarkers of silent inflammation and metabolic syndrome. It also includes comprehensive lipid profile called VAP and other independent risk factors of cardiovascular health. Equally important is the hormonal profile for men and women, heavy metal screen and important vitamin levels.

Part Three:  Diagnostic Assessment

Detailed Physical Examination is performed together with the interpretation of the Laboratory Screen and the  questionnaire. Physical examination is done by the physician either before but ideally after questionnaire responses and receipt of the laboratory test results.

1. Initial Wellness Evaluation (Recommended with the follow up care)

The comprehensive report generated by the physician contains description of major conditions, concerns and abnormal trends towards disease. Recommendations for the future lifestyle changes in the diet, exercise, and added supplemental and hormonal  support are stipulated .

The report summarizing the above is  submitted to the client 1 month after the initial contact since it takes about 3 weeks to obtain all the required test results.

2. Extended 3 Months Monitor/Mentor Wellness Care

Included is #1 and repeated laboratory screen* taken 2 months after the start of suggested therapy and lifestyle modification. Also included is the physician’s assistance in modulation of initial treatments with monitoring, mentoring and managing of any changes due to unexpected reactions, side effects. Such interventions are done either by telephone, electronic communication and if requested, by client’s personal visit in  physician’s office.

* Second laboratory screen focuses on the follow up of the abnormal values and trends discovered in the
1st screen. It also assesses the effects of implemented therapy and allows for further insight into the progress.

3. Extended 8 Months Mentor/Monitor Wellness Care.

This extended wellness program includes #1 and #2 and the 3rd Laboratory Screen** taken 6 months after the 2nd screen. Such a timetable allows for the long term follow up of the desirable trends with more definite changes towards improved wellness. This program also includes the use of IMT.

** Laboratory Screen done at the end of this program is focused on the persisting abnormal trends and values or development of some new trends and values potentially impacting the maximum effect of long term therapy.

4.  14 Months Mentor/Monitor Wellness Care.

An extensive long term involvement in the development of stable habits and patterns leading to the maximum potential of lifelong wellness. This program includes #1,2,3 programs and extends physician’s concierge care by another 6 months. At the end of this program client undergoes a full in depth laboratory screen as a part of the annual checkup.

Also included in this program is 1 free IMT and 1 free Thyroflex exam. Subsequent IMT and thyroflex exams used to monitor the progressive resolution and stabilization of intravascular plaque and improvement of thyroid function are offered at a discounted price.

ADDITIONAL TESTING OFFERED TO ALL CLIENTS

A. Thyroid Screen and Brachioradial Reflex Testing by Thyroflex

The test reflects thyroid hormones activity at the cellular level. The recognition of thyroid dysfunction with normal thyroid hormone levels is the key to the treatment of many degenerative diseases of modern age. Tissue resistance to the hormones and/or decreased effectivness due to different toxicities and stress often result in ill defined but pronounced morbidities. Thyroflex test together with Thyrodine Quantitative Iodine Fluid assessment gives  the clinician a veritable clinical picture of the thyroid condition.

B. Ultrasound Examination of Carotid Arteries – IMT by Heart Smart Technologies

This test measures the thickness of the carotid arterial wall, evaluates the amount and character of the plaque build up and establishes the degree of stenosis at the different levels of carotid anatomy. The results reflect level of health  of  important arteries in your body; namely your carotids, coronary and brain arteries and place client in 1 of 5 categories  of vascular risk.

Reference Material

C. Bone Mineral Density and Body Fat Analysis, with Body Fat Distribution Measurement by Dexa Scan Technology.

The epidemics of obesity and disruption of metabolic processes due to the diet, lack of exercise, stress and multiple toxicities are the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the modern age. The scan is a very safe  procedure with ultra minimum radiation. Its relevance to menopause, andropause, smoking, obesity and associated degenerative pre-disease states and vitamin deficiencies cannot be overemphasized. (available in the near future at our facility).

D. Physical Endurance and Maximum Performance Testing.

This is a complex evaluation and assessment of your conditioning and of the capacity of your cardiovascular pulmonary and muscular systems to maintain and improve your peak state of wellness. Included in this evaluation is VO2max assessment by Korr Ergometer, postural measurement, standard exercise measurement i.e. push ups, abdominal crunches, flexibility, hand grip dynamometry. (available at our facility in near future.)

TESTING
Most of the testing will be done by Metametrix, Quest Laboratories or Lab Corp,
