 What is Iridology


Iridology is the non-invasive science of studying the iris of the eye to reveal conditions of tissues and organs in the body. It is a quick, accurate and painless system of health analysis through the examination of the coloured part of the eye known as the iris.


Proclaimed throughout the ages as "windows of the soul", the eyes are now acknowledged as mirrors of the body and compared to miniature television screens recording the condition of the various organs and tissues throughout the body.  

The iris is an extension of the brain endowed with many thousands of nerve endings, microscopic blood vessels, as well as muscle and connective tissue. Every organ is connected to the iris via the nervous system and the nerve fibres receiving their impulses through the optic nerve, optic thalami, and the spinal cord.The iris records information about the state and functioning of every organ in the body as well as levels of inflammation and toxicity. This enables the underlying cause of the symptoms we may experience to be detected and removed.

The greatest advantage of iridology over other forms of health screening is that changes appear in the iris before the physical symptoms actually develops. Therefore, preventive action may be taken to improve health and avoid those diseases which might otherwise follow.



 What Is Gemmotherapy

Gemmotherapy is a branch of phytotherapy that uses buds and young shoots of trees and shrubs. They are gathered in the spring, at a key stage of the natural growth cycle, and freshly prepared in a macerate process using water, alcohol and glycerine.   

Made of developing tissues, buds and young shoots are a true concentrate of the plant's energy and vitality.  

Buds and young shoots are made of embryonic tissues and enclose all the genetic information of the future plant. In addition to containing vitamins, oligo-elements, and minerals, buds and young shoots are richer in nucleic acids and growth hormones than other plant tissues. They also contain other active substances, such as auxins and gibberellins, which start to disappear after a plant reaches a certain point in its growth.  

Given that they are extracts of developing tissues, gemmotherapy remedies combine the properties of the whole plant, including the flowers, the leaves, the fruits, the sapwood, and the rootlets.

 What is Reflexology


Reflexology is a focused pressure technique that is a gentle, non-invasive therapy based on the principle that there are zones and reflexes in the feet, hands and ears that correspond to every organ, gland and part of the body. It is a whole body treatment - not just a massage.
In a reflexology treatment, pressure is exerted on these reflexes by the thumbs and fingers, combining this with massage, relaxation and joint mobilization techniques. When the reflexes are stimulated, the body's natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones. A reflexology session seems to break up deposits (felt as a sandy or gritty area under the skin) which may interfere with this natural flow of the body's energy.
Manipulating specific reflexes removes stress, activating a parasympathetic response in the body to enable the disharmonies to be released by a physiological change in the body. Thus the result is homeostasis (internal balance) in the body.

Homeostasis is the "automatic" process that the body incorporates to bring it back to the "normal" state. For example, if the blood pressure is abnormal, the kidneys will secrete the enzyme renin which is involved with blood pressure, and the hormone, erythropoietin that increases the rate of red blood cell production.

When we are stressed our body's defences break down and we become more susceptible to illness and disease. Reflexology reduces stress by generating deep tranquil relaxation, helping the body balance itself and allowing healing energy to flow.  

Blood needs to flow freely throughout the body carrying oxygen and nutrients to all the cells and removing the waste products of metabolism and other toxins. By reducing stress and tension, reflexology allows the cardiovascular vessels to conduct the flow of blood naturally and easily.  

By stimulating more than 7,000 nerves in the feet, reflexology encourages the opening and clearing of neural pathways. It interrupts pain pathways, reducing pain.  

Reflexology stimulates the lymphatic system thus reducing risk of infection. It cleanses the body of toxins and impurities and also stimulates the production of endorphins, leading to an improved immune system and sense of well-being.  

Reflexology revitalises energy throughout the body by relaxing and opening up energy pathways.


 What is EIS (Electro Interstitial Scan)


The Electro Interstitial Scan (EIS) device is a computerized, electro-medical system which is safe, non-invasive, with no side-effects, and no adverse reactions.  Scans on human subjects take only 3 minutes and provide immediate, 3-dimensional (3-D) image models as well as hard copy text reports.


The EIS provides traditional medical physiological values based on the body's interstitial fluid compartment.


The EIS System is a new, scientifically validated, total body health scanning device that allows health practitioners to, quickly and non-invasively, estimate the health status of the major organs of the body helping them make better decisions as regards client treatment. The Electro Interstitial Scan system is a hugely valuable, affordable tool for practitioners giving clients a very good overview of their current health status. It computes the data from the non-invasive 3 minute body scan to give:


•  3 D Body Image

•  Complete Evaluation of:

o  All body systems including functional risk analysis

o  Interstitial electrolyte, hormonal, neurotransmitter balance

o  Body composition analysis BMI, lean mass, fat mass and hydration levels

o  Interstitial pH showing body acid/alkali balance

o  Oxidative stress potential

•  Computer generated therapeutic guidelines:

o  Further medical tests

o  Personalised nutrition and micro-nutrition guidelines

o  Adjunctive therapies

•  Objectively monitors:

o  Imbalances

o  Pathologies

o  Treatment effectiveness

The EIS system can detect organ pathologies by measuring the relative health of the fluid surrounding the organs.  This complex form of bio-impedance testing can often reveal disease patterns before symptoms are manifest.  Extra time and early detection often equals greater treatment success. The EIS system gives practitioners the ability to monitor the effect of treatment also enabling the client to visually see the difference through high quality 3D imaging creating a mind-body connection.


 What is Dark Field Microscopic Blood Analysis

Viewing a fresh, natural blood sample (a sample not altered with any stains, etc., needed for normal microscopic exams), under the technology of a Dark Field microscope, will reveal conditions of your blood differently from a basic diagnosis of a regular blood test performed in a lab. It is an excellent addition, or complement, to the standard laboratory blood tests.

The Dark Field microscope is a microscope designed to permit diversion of light rays and illumination, from the side, so that details appear light against a dark background; as opposed to light passing straight through the specimen. If bright lights from the microscope pass directly through the specimen, the heat from the light source will kill the red blood cells (RBCs) faster. Also, by diverting the light rays, a greater amount of depth and details can be viewed. (Almost like a three-dimension view).  

Dark Field microscopy thus allows a health professional to evaluate the shapes and other properties of individual blood cells, indicating nutritional conditions which can be adversely affecting a person's health. The advantage of this analysis over standard blood tests, which detect chemical changes in the blood, is the ability of dark field microscopy to detect nutritional disorders sooner, when the problem is in its infancy stages. By monitoring the blood's condition, a health professional can assist in "balancing" the blood by giving dietary and lifestyle recommendations which can enhance health.  

In Dark Field microscopy, one is able to observe "live blood."   

What one sees in the mobile situation are the usual red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma—and what is floating in the plasma. Microbial activity, undigested food, fungi, and crystals are all apparent as is the capacity of the red blood cells to circulate and the white blood cells to devour morbid matter.   

In live blood cell analysis, Dark Field microscopy is best used to understand and view the cause of improper nutrition and problems in the body.



  What Is Medical Herbalism / Phytotherapy


Phytotherapy is modern herbal medicine at its best. Medical herbalism is a traditional medicinal practice based on the use of plants and plant extracts. It applies scientific research and the highest professional standards to the practice of herbal medicine.


In phytotherapy, plant medicines are selected mainly to stimulate or strengthen the body’s normal functions, and so help the body heal itself. Unlike orthodox drugs that have a single ingredient, plant medicines contain many ingredients and may have several simultaneous therapeutic actions in the body.


The phytotherapist approaches each patient as a unique individual in making an analysis and assessing the patient’s needs. Any herbal medicine prescribed may be a combination of plants chosen for the therapeutic actions required to treat that individual.


Phytotherapy medicine can be in the form of a tincture, tea, capsule, powder or tablet, and a lotion or cream for topical use.



What is Chemstrip ®Test Analysis


The urine test strips allow rapid screening for disease of the kidney and urogenital tract, carbohydrate metabolism disorder (ie. diabetes mellitus), liver disease and hemolytic disorders. 
 What is Gain Scan Analysis
A Gait Scan Analysis is a detailed examination of your walk and much can be determined from this. The foot, being the foundation of our body which carries all of our weight and absorbs all shock, has an effect on our body’s health.
We use the TOG GaitScan™ System, which is a revolutionary diagnostic tool for assessing an individual's biomechanics. It has an industry high 4096 sensors and scans at an industry high 300Hz (scans per second).
This makes it possible to assess the patient's biomechanical health and any problems that are occurring.
These measurements provide a detailed explanation of foot mechanics and assists us with providing orthotic solutions for you.
The foot is an intricate and mechanically complex structure made up of 26 major bones, associated joints and soft tissue structures.  The efficiency with which the foot functions when walking depends on the way in which these bones and joints move in relation to each other.  Efficient and pain-free function also depends heavily on the foot's angle to the leg and to the ground.  If things do not work well in any of these areas, painful problems may result.
Biomechanics refers to the analysis of the foot and leg function and the diagnosis of any functional problems or abnormalities.
Aching feet and painful lower limb problems don't have to be endured.  The cause of such problems is often due to the misalignment of the joints and resulting soft tissue stresses in the leg or foot.  This can lead to common problems, such as:

·         Aching and over-tired feet

·         Ankle sprains and weaknesses

·         Over pronation (collapsing of arch)

·         Sports related overuse injuries

·         Bunions

·         Corns and callouses

·         Painful toenails

But the pain caused by these misalignments is not always restricted to the feet.  Because our feet take the strain of our daily activities, every step impacts directly upwards through the body.  This means that stress and pain may be experienced in the joint of the following areas:

·         Feet                    

·         Hips

·         Neck

·         Knees

·         Back

All of these parts of the body are connected to the feet via the skeleton.  Effects may show as pain, instability, restricted movement or, in some cases, just fatigue.
The foot is an impressive architectural and functional design, able to act as both a flexible supportive base and a rigid lever.  It is expected to work efficiently under excessive loads and demands, often in extreme conditions imposed on it by footwear and the environment in which it has to work.  However, this complex structure's function depends heavily on having its correct functional angles and joint movements maintained.
In walking or running, the foot needs to be flexible enough to absorb the shock of hitting the ground.  It also has to be firm enough not to collapse as the body's weight moves over it at each and every step.  No surprise that sometimes things start to go wrong with the foot function, and pain or disability results.  In most cases, it is not until heavy or unusual demands are made on the feet by work, sport, injury, or simply by the passage of time, that potential weaknesses are revealed.
Orthotics reposition the foot structure to achieve to achieve optimum skeletal balance, thereby reducing the stress and pain on the joints that are causing the discomfort.  They do this by controlling joint movement, and by altering some angles to prevent excessive motion.

Many orthotics look like arch supports, but they are not intended to support the arch.  Orthotics are angled individually to control the heel and forefoot, and to prevent excessive motion.  The natural arch in the foot will in most cases become more apparent while the orthotics are worn.  There are many differnt types of orthotics.  The type that is used depends on the activity in which the patient is involved, the shoes they want to wear, and the underlying foot problem.
