Natural Diagnosis

By: Tiggy Max

Finding the root cause of a condition or illness one always wants to know exactly what is going on and what has caused it. .In both natural and mainstream medicine there are approaches which can be used to establish the cause of a complaint. Some of these address the current, acute condition. Others are more thorough and are able to isolate the long term cause. So what are the various screening methods available.

Laboratory tests are the staple of most practitioners. There are a wide choice of analytical facilities a and some practitioners may even send samples abroad to a laboratory they know and trust. Blood tests can detect a large variety of pathogens and other foreign bodies and biological imbalances. But results hinge upon what you ask the laboratory to test for. A large number of conditions can be screened for by analysing just one blood sample. But results from most blood tests normally fall into two categories: firstly there can be incontrovertible evidence of the presence of certain biochemical patterns and entities and secondly where - markers - indicate the presence of something else. Markers are biochemicals which point to the presence of other biochemicals will usually accompany the particular marker. The second method of analysis is no means infallible. Although blood testing can be the best source of physiological information, it is largely dependent upon what analytical parameters are requested of the laboratory, which they will then test for.

Urine tests are useful in revealing blood sugar levels, toxin and heavy metal content as well as several pathogenic conditions. Although a valid method, it can detect free radical activity, oxidative stress and is also helpful for early of diabetes, urine testing is essentially a snapshot of what is going on with the body. It will not normally give indicators to the practitioner of the possible location or thing that is causing the physiological imbalance.

Saliva testing is useful in revealing acid-alkaline balance, enzymal activity, hormonal imbalance and the presence of some toxins.

The highly expensive hospital machines available can often detect a huge array of pathogenic conditions but are not always easy to get access to and even then are often followed by a request for a biopsy. Having a steel implement shoved into you after just having been on a multi-million dollar machine somehow does not make sense.

In bioimpedance screening a low voltage circuit is conducted through the patient's body. Readings are then taken on acupoints. Each acupoint is on a meridian line and relates to a particular organ or function of the body. Software then interprets the readings, pinpointing areas of inflammation, normal function or cellular deterioration. Bioimpedance testing allows the practitioner to observe the status of organs, glandular activity and much more. Additionally, the energy signatures of many other items are stored within the bioimpedance machine and can be introduced into the circuit. For instance, the energy signature of mercury could be activated to see if there is a response within the patient's physiology. If the software indicates a response to mercury then the practitioner knows there is heavy metal toxicity relating to this particular element. This type of screening is a good point of entry for any practitioner or patient. The key is distinguishing symptoms or consequences from the initial cause and bioimpedance genuinely offers this.

Finding the root cause of a condition or illness one always wants to know exactly what is going on and what has caused it. .

Tigg Max has worked in nutraceutical development for over twenty years. During this time she has delivered seminars all over the world. Bioimpedance and its use in the detection of illnesses has been here key area of research . With specialised equipment, based on Dr Voll's principles, she has tested several developments in nutraceuticals to establish their efficacy and suitability for specific conditions.
