Client Care What to Expect
Your first steps on the programme will be to discuss with our patient coordinators and to complete a questionnaire on your general and specific health issues, and your diet and exercise. To establish your desires and expectations from the programmes. To establish your perception of what we offer and also your commitment and what may be a hindrance to your commitment. Everything that has happened to you in your life has contributed to your current and future health situation. Everything matters! Your Prescription for Health report and Health Coach takes that into account so a sound strategy is developed for improving your health.
Nutrition Diagnostics has a goal to optimise your health through three basic approaches:
- Minimisation of the daily exposure to new toxins.
- Optimally safe detoxification of already accumulated toxins.
- Repair and regeneration of tissues and organ systems already damaged by toxicity by allowing the body by design to heal itself.
Many patients can expect little long-term improvement even if they can get their immune systems effectively stimulated, as long as the continuous exposure to unaddressed dental toxicity continues to compromise and weaken their regulation and immune system on a daily basis.
Total Dental Revision (TDR) is the most important intervention for the vast majority of patients. For many people, dental toxins represent the greatest daily exposure to toxicity. This toxin exposure seems to be the greatest cause and aggravator of nearly all degenerative diseases, especially cancer and autoimmune disease. Mercury, incompatible dental metals, cavitations, failing dental implants, periodontal disease, and infected root canals must all be vigorously addressed.
We are dedicated to getting consistently positive clinical results which do not presently appear to be available anywhere else.
We want to know everything about you !
Next, we’ll arrange for you to have a blood and urine sample taken. From this, we receive and create a very detailed report that will form the basis of your programme. When we have those reports back, we’ll meet with you again to explain to you where you’re ‘at’ on the health curve, and we’ll map out your tailored programme with you, along with your ideal dietary regime, nutritional intake, exercise plan and detox programme. Importantly and uniquely, by identifying and addressing what are called your ‘blood chemistry markers’, the Nutrition Diagnostics process targets the fundamental cause of health and also weight problems, rather than simply treating the superficial symptoms.
Your blood chemistry markers hold the secrets to precisely what your body requires at the specific time to get well and stay well. Then as you progress on the programme, and your health improves, and you’re moving towards balance, we adjust your dietary intake and programme based on your blood chemistries.
Your Nutrition Diagnostics programme may include sessions in our state-of-the-art facilities:
Now that may sound like pampering. And yes, you’ll find using the sauna, floatation facilities and exercise studio a most pleasant experience. But, pampering as these may feel, each of these is a vital part of your programme. You see, each of these facilities plays a vital role in gently releasing toxins from your body, and freeing you up to achieve your chemical balance. Indeed, the more you learn about this, the more you’ll realize the follies of the past in chasing long term weight management with popular starvation diets, gym workouts, weight loss drugs and protein powder meal replacements.
Your Prescription for Health Report
An Overall Analysis of What’s Going On.
A Prescription for Health report is the most comprehensive health report that will deliver the results that you want; the report is descriptive as well as prescriptive pointing the way to optimum Health.
It is Central to our focused coaching programmes.
A Prescription for Health report is a sophisticated, customized method for helping you find answers to complex, dental-medical-environmental related health problems. It provides medically and dentally sound advice regarding diet, lifestyle, and food supplementation. Each comprehensive report is research based and rigorously prepared. Each report is a tool to help both you and us better understand the cause(s) of your dental-medical-environmental health problem and guide you through a natural means of health restoration, maintenance, and disease prevention based on a Health Model.
By Pointing The Way Out Of The Disease Maze By Identifying and addressing fundamental Causes, Not Just Symptoms.
A Prescription for Health report evaluates your oral and medical and environmentally driven health problems by searching for underlying causes. This is accomplished by comparing specific blood and urine chemistries with diet and lifestyle information conveyed through extensive questionnaires that you complete, and the initial information collection by our patient coordinators. Constructing the report entails significant effort and input prior to its presentation.
Laboratory results are broken down into assessment areas. Interpretations in each assessment area are then linked to your diet, lifestyle, dental, medical history, and a history of exposure to a variety of common toxins and heavy metals. An interpretation of these interrelationships is then made.
EACH REPORT IS PREPARED INDIVIDUALLY – TAILORED TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS. IT IS A TOOL AND REFERENCE STARTING POINT THAT ALLOWS OUR HEALTH COACHES AND YOU BEGIN THE VICTORY MARCH TOGETHER.
Descriptive AND Prescriptive
In the Overall Assessment section of the report, a health optimization game plan is set forth, followed by an action plan. The objective is to find a way to improve total health both oral and general.
For example, let’s assume you have a combination of bleeding gums, loose teeth, and low-grade inflammation of the gums with infection. The same fundamental defects that cause these symptoms – inflammation, poor connective tissue integrity, and compromised immune system – also play a role in varicose veins, hiatal hernia, general fatigue, Crohn’s disease, a weak back, Candida, lactose intolerance, and/or coronary artery disease (to name just a few). The analysis would trace what led to each of these problems, and the action plan would give you customized nutritional and lifestyle recommendations targeting them – guided by the body chemistry report. As you might guess, the effect of this approach is not isolated to the mouth. It is systemic. Thus, by helping you improve your oral health in this way, you will often see improvement in other areas of your health and vice versa.
By including specific measured diet, food supplement, and lifestyle steps in each Prescription for Health Report, coupled with a suggested action plan for you; the outcome of your treatment tends to be enhanced no matter what your original diagnosis. This is done through application of the best current knowledge available about wellness restoration and maintenance.
Your Prescription for Health may also reduce potential negative side effects when prescription drugs become necessary. For instance, in treating infections using antibiotics, there is always the risk of developing antibiotic-resistant organisms that threaten our future. We lessen this risk when we enhance the action of antibiotics by negatively altering the organism’s environment, balancing body chemistry and changing body pH. And, where you elect to forgo antibiotics, you have an anti-infection alternative – and renewed hope for long-term health rather than being caught in an antibiotic merry-go-round.
Here, we would explain how and why you would begin in a certain way. In doing so, consider the laboratory data as well as answers given on the questionnaires that were not originally stated as a health complaint. These answers may bring into play a potential problem that had not been brought to the table, so to speak.
Leading You To Health By Considering All Possible Underlying Causes
For example, let’s say our hypothetical patient had a low BUN, a high normal Total Bilirubin, and a low-to-low normal G-6-PD. Also her urinary porphyrin levels are elevated and also demonstrate an elevated Red Blood Cell Porphyrin.... Let’s say she also reported on the questionnaire that she urinated than six times per day and often at night.
Oxidant catalysts, especially heavy metals, very often begin their damaging ways by interfering with glomerular filtration. The altered kidney function that results often being with symptoms of polyuria, as seen here – due to the excess of urine getting through the kidneys. Because the antioxidant glutathione is the primary protector of the kidneys from heavy metal oxidant catalysts, then you can expect this nutrient to be low. If low, and because it is required along with vitamin E to maintain RBC integrity, then it will be reflected in a low-to-low normal G-6-PD. The high normal total bilirubin, in this case reflects the excess of pigment being lost from the RBC’s due to their heightened fragility. In this case you would want to administer glutathione early in the program.
By doing this you support the health of the kidney’s and the red blood cells. Had you simply gone in and taken out the sources of mercury such as dental fillings in an attempt to reduce the patient’s exposure to the mercury oxidant catalyst, it is likely that these and other symptoms would have gotten worse as a result of the increased level of mercury in the blood and urine.
As another example: of thinking in terms of a disease label, looking at numbers in isolation can be misleading. We often see clients who have been tested for "Vitamin D levels"
I have a low Vitamin D measurement shouldn't I be supplementing with Vitamin D? And, how much would you recommend? Adverts and other practitioners are recommending it?
When reviewing your Prescription For Health Report you will have an understanding why we would have concerns with the widespread enthusiasm over supplementing with high levels of vitamin D. As with all other health questions, it depends upon what the other chemistry data reveals. For instance there are other major reasons for a serum vitamin D reading being low, other than a true vitamin D deficiency:
- A low serum protein or inadequate protein status to bind calcium sufficiently will result in an increase in free, unbound calcium accompanied by a (protective) low serum vitamin D – a scenario that we have observed affects the majority of the population. The Ca/Albumin ratio will be elevated, or there will be a positive free calcium index calculated in your report.
- A low to low-normal serum phosphate, causing unhealthy rise in free, unbound calcium, which may again cause a protective lower reading for serum vitamin D – a scenario that likely affects the majority of adults over age 45.The Ca/Albumin ratio will be elevated, or there will be a positive free calcium index calculated in your report.
- A negative feedback from vitamin D receptor activity, due to an elevation in active vitamin D, may result in a protectively low reading for vitamin D – a scenario that likely affects just about anyone taking an ultra megadose of vitamin D, regardless of their baseline reading.
- A low serum reading for total serum calcium in "someone who is diseased with calcium deposits" will result in the body’s protective lowering-response for serum vitamin D. In all of these circumstances, high dosages of vitamin D will run the risk of further disease and calcification, often punctuated by a rise in serum calcium to a level that could be life threatening for a variety of reasons.
Free Calcium Excess
Seen in the mouth as:
•Calculus on teeth
Seen elsewhere as
•Brittle Bones/ osteopenia/ osteoporosis
Will predispose to:
•Complicated arterial lesions; with calcification
•High blood pressure
It is some researchers contention that thousands of people are on dialysis today due to taking high levels of vitamin D and calcium without considering why the original reading was low, and thousands more are dying of heart disease and various atrophy states due to the same major flaw in interpretation. Don’t be misled by those who practice only in accordance to the one-size-fits-all disease model philosophy.
Calcium balance is absolutely crucial for your health and wellness. Calcium is the only mineral that has its very own glandular system devoted to maintaining its balance -- the parathyroid glands. Why is the balance of calcium so important? We mostly think of calcium in terms of bone loss as we age and with arthritis or coronary artery calcification. Yet, every muscle contraction and every nerve impulse in your body depends totally on the proper calcium physiology. It is important not to over supplement or supplement at all with calcium. As long as the ratio of calcium to phosphate is balanced, it is safe to supplement with calcium. However, if phosphate is deficient or low as measured in a chemistry (this occurs in states of acid stress or poor protein status), you need to be very careful with supplementing calcium. Over-supplementation of calcium could lead to an excess of ionized (free) calcium, and that can tend to promote deposits of unwanted and unhealthy calcium in body tissues.
Hi Nutrition DiagnosticsSo sorry to bother you but would like your adviceSue & I both had heart scans last week for a Coronary Artery Calcification ScoreThe results for both of us was not all that good…....both of us have moderate calcification of one of the arteries.....
Health success often depends on getting a proper chemistry and a health model-based interpretation of that chemistry.
Numbers can lead us astray while the correct interpretation leads the way.
Brilliant !!!!…Thanks so much for your helpYou have motivated us again to be more focused.Must admit I have fallen into the trap of high doses of Vitamin D. Our doctor always saying get your Vitamin D levels up. The report from the Radiologist said “Cardiovascular opinion advised”We have made appointments with Dr R... W..... ( I saw him 16 years ago for a Calcium score…it was zero then)The reason for seeing him is that he is the “most holistic” cardiovascular doctor I knowThe appointment is not for 4 months so that gives us some time to turn things aroundWill get new blood tests done and send them through
......….we are both very grateful for your advice
D... & S..
PS Trust your family are all well.
Improve Any Treatment Outcome By Linking Body Chemistry Understanding With Nutrition and Lifestyle...By including a specific eating plan, food supplement, and lifestyle steps in each report.

New Possibilities For Treatment, But No Panaceas
The Prescription for Health Report offers a logical approach to managing a multitude of health problems that are common to medicine and dentistry – all based on current knowledge about how a normal body functions in a healthy state. In most cases – and especially where there are multiple symptoms – the recommendations very often lead to significant, overall improvement.
Of course, this report does not offer a magical cure for currently incurable diseases but improvement and for some disappearance of serious conditions have been seen.
We are committed to lasting relationships. Let's make it happen.
