The Science of Balancing Body Chemistry

The key to being healthy is ‘balance’. When our bodies are chemically balanced, we are proven to be healthier and happier. For this reason, our singular mission at Nutrition Diagnostics is balancing body chemistry - both through our health programmes and our range of natural, clinically-proven supplements. We don’t subscribe to fads, trending diets or radical regimes, bur rather, believe in science - supported by years of research and clinical testing, and delivering real, tangible results to our clients and customers.

Disease Doesn’t Just ‘Happen’ at Random

If we accept that health is the opposite of disease, and we accept that health requires certain inputs and conditions, then we must accept that disease does too - it doesn’t just occur at random - it is the product of our actions. When we take action contrary to the needs of our body - either through poor diet, toxin exposure or an underlying imbalance - we develop any number of the ‘six subclinical defects’. It is these six subclinical defects that underpin and link all disease. Without these defects, disease cannot and does not occur. 

The 6 Subclinical Defects That Unerpin All Disease

Each one of the six subclinical defects indicates an imbalance in body chemistry - often due to a combination of diet and lifestyle. Where left unchecked, such defects leave us predisposed to developing a range of chronic illnesses. Oftentimes, one imbalance or defect will lead to another - which is why we see patients presenting with multiple illnesses.

Controlling the Six Subclinical Defects

If you can prevent, control or eradicate the incidence of these subclinical defects, you can prevent, control or eradicate disease - maintaining or restoring your health to optimum levels. And how does one control these six subclinical defects? Through balancing body chemistry - the idea being that when the body is in balance, it is healthier, stronger, and therefore far better equipped to thwart disease and maintain health.

Health Model Thinking vs Disease Model Thinking

There are two primary schools of thought in health; disease model thinking and health model thinking. Disease model thinking is the most commonly adopted in modern healthcare, and although it certainly works in crisis care and medical emergencies, it often fails us with respect to general health and chronic illness

The essence of disease model thinking is to nullify symptoms - often with pills or various forms of synthetic medication - without ever addressing the root cause of the problem. Health model thinking, on the other hand, seeks to address the root cause of such symptoms - therefore treating symptoms in the process - through balancing body chemistry by way of diet, lifestyle and supplementation.

HEALTH MODEL THINKING

  • Treats the cause
  • Takes a holistic view of health
  • Asks ‘why’ the problem is occuring
  • Seeks to treat cause by balancing body chemistry
  • Recognises the links between illnesses

DISEASE MODEL THINKING

  • Treats symptoms
  • Takes a narrow view of health
  • Assigns a label to a problem
  • Seeks to treat symptoms with pills
  • Ignores links between illnesses
