COMPREHENSIVE SERVICES

BODY COMPOSITION ASSESSMENT

The body composition scale sends an imperceptible current through your body (bioelectrical impedance). These measurements tell you about your body fat, muscles, metabolism, bone structure and body water.

RESTING METABOLIC RATE

By measuring your resting metabolic rate or RMR, which is a unique number affected by our weight, age, body composition, hormone levels, and gender, we can get a more precise assessment of how much energy (or fuel) your body burns in a day.

FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING

Sometimes certain foods can make you feel unwell, regardless if they’re healthy or not. They may trigger any number of food sensitivity symptoms, such as headaches, digestive issues, joint pain or skin problems. To help identify potentially problematic foods I offer food sensitivity tests.

HORMONAL & GENETIC TESTING

A comprehensive report detailing your genotype in seven areas and provides you with diet and exercise strategies that are tailored to your genotype. 
Saliva testing is used for measuring hormones such as cortisol, estrogen and testosterone, and its non-invasive collection asks patients to spit into a plastic tube.

The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets.

It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain.

Ketogenic diets can cause massive reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased ketones, has numerous health benefits.

While it’s easy to think that the keto diet is one-size fits all, there are actually several different types of keto diets, and they all have different benefits, depending on what your nutritional goals are.

So, don't fall for those online gimmicks! Without expert advice and proper supervision, you may not be consuming the right proportions of food. Too much or too little of a certain nutrient can be a danger to your health and prevent you from reaching your goals. 

Our Keto programs is customized for you and can include our ketogenic meal replacements as well as guides to know when and what to eat. With medical and dietary supervision, we are able to safely ensure optimal weight loss.
