Kinesiology

Kinesiology uses a muscle to indicate whether electrical circuits are open or closed. It is a post-graduate chiropractic technique and has been adopted by naturopaths and other health professionals as a simple way to get information from the body.

The Oligoscan

This instrument uses spectrophotometry to measure the optical density of the trace elements, minerals and heavy metals currently present in the tissues.

We want to know that you have adequate amounts of essential minerals and trace elements to enable the smooth running of all parts of your metabolism, immune system etc.

Hair Mineral Analysis

We measure iron in the blood and frequently talk about iron deficiency or iron excess. There are many other minerals eg. selenium, iodine, manganese, zinc, chromium which are also important. Whereas iron lives and works mainly in the blood, these others are more active in the tissues.

Laboratory Tests

We use standard blood, urine and faeces tests that are available through collecting agencies in New Zealand and we use other tests that require us to send samples overseas.

The standard New Zealand tests are administered via DHBs who allocate funding to some tests and not others.
