The treatment involves assessment of each patient's body chemistry imbalances using a range of laboratory tests of blood, urine and hair samples, along with physical examination, medical and life history data. Individualised complementary nutritional supplement programs aimed at balancing the patient's body chemistry are prescribed on the basis of these assessments.

Follow-up studies of representative patient samples have indicated a high level of effectiveness for the treatment, finding that recovery or significant improvement was achieved in a high proportion of cases, often enabling conventional drug dosages to be significantly reduced and, in some cases, phased out in consultation with the patient's doctor. Many thousands of patients have been successfully treated using this approach.

The Process

  • Your selected Doctor will order the required tests.
  • Your first appointment will require about one hour and your Doctor will explain the procedure to you.
  • At the follow up appointment your test results will be available and your Doctor will be able to advise you of the outcome, and in most cases will give you a program of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and amino acids to follow. This program will be reviewed periodically.
  • It is most important that your maintain your medication while on a nutrient program. It is also most important that you are regularly compliant with your nutrient program.
