Biological Medicine utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach to determining the root cause of disease. Because biological medicine treats individuals, not just symptoms or diseases, a variety of diagnostic tests may be used to identify your individual sensitivities and the areas in which your body’s systems are not functioning properly. In addition to an in-depth personal history and physical examination, some of the commonly used diagnostic techniques are listed below.
We know from laboratory and epidemiological studies as well as from our own experience that at the core of much degenerative disease is a problem with nutrition. What you eat has an effect on every cell in your body and on the fluids that flow around those cells. Nutrition is a key aspect of biological medicine and a detailed dietary assessment is an important tool to determine potential food allergies or sensitivities as well as ensure that your body is getting the right vitamins, minerals, trace elements and correct balance of food.
CONTACT Regulation Thermography (CRT)
Computer Regulation Thermography is a tool used to get a functional picture of all of the organ systems in the body. CRT is a non-invasive, reproductive thermographic tool that evaluates pre-determined skin temperature points and detects changes in the body’s temperature regulation in order to produce data that can be used for adjunctive diagnosis of certain diseases.
Dark Field Microscopy
Viewing a fresh, natural blood sample under the technology of a dark field microscope, will reveal conditions of your blood not even considered during a normal blood test. Practitioners are able to evaluate the shapes and other properties of individual blood cells that give a much more complete picture of your inner milieu.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
HRV refers to the beat-to-beat alterations in heart rate. The origin of the heartbeat is located in a sino-atrial (SA) note of the heart, where a group of specialized cells continuously generate an electrical impulse spreading all over the heart muscle’s specialized pathways, and creating a process of heart muscle contractions well synchronized between both atriums and ventricles. The heart rate variability analysis is a powerful tool in assessing the autonomic function. It is accurate, reliable, reproducible, yet simple to measure and process. The source of information for HRV is a continuous beat-by-beat measurement of interbeat intervals.
Specialized Blood Tests
Measure for toxicity, metabolic function and allergies. This is common in most clinics and practices.
