Diagnostic Testing, Brisbane
Fundamental to treating any problem is a correct understand of what is causing it and why. We listen carefully to your concerns, to understand the signs and symptoms that your body is providing, and clues about the root cause of your dysfunction. At CNTC Brisbane, diagnostic testing includes quite a wide-ranging selection of tests, some of which we often combine, to help pinpoint the underlying issues affecting your health. These include:
Comprehensive Health Assessment (Free Service)
This is our most important and fundamental test, and is unique to our clinic. A very thorough examination evaluates your liver, kidneys, heart, digestive system, immune system, lungs, areas of circulation impedance, thyroid, hormones, stress levels, toxicity levels, blood sugar control, and much more. You will gain a clear insight into how your body is working, and most people find their Assessment very helpful, interesting and informative. The Assessment is normally valued at $120, but is available as a free service for the moment.
If you have a health issue you would like to resolve, we recommend booking in for a free Comprehensive Assessment. Please see towards the bottom of our Home page or the video at the top right of this page for details.
Food Intolerance Testing – Do you feel unwell without knowing why, or have a lot of vague symptoms? If so, there is a good chance that food intolerances may be to blame. We are pleased to announce that our clinic now has the equipment to perform in-house Food Intolerance Testing. After pricking a finger, a blood test is performed to determine the level of anti-bodies in your body to 59 of the most common foods reacted to. The test also tells us if your reaction to the food is mild, moderate or severe. A brochure on food intolerances and the test for them is available at the clinic.
Computerised Organ Function Testing – We are one of the few clinics in Australia with this diagnostic equipment. You will receive a Report in graph form on how all your major organs and areas of your body are functioning, and an explanation of what your results mean. We can usually also identify why a part of your body is not working properly.
Iridology – The iris of your eyes are examined to look for toxic deposits in your body and where they are located, cholesterol build-up, weaknesses of different organs, the state of the nervous system, lymphatic congestion, and so on.
Indicans Test – Measures the level of toxicity in your body and provides us with a clear indication of the level of bacterial imbalance in the digestive system.
Tongue and Nail Diagnosis – The condition of your nails and tongue can indicate digestive problems, cardiovascular conditions, lung disease, thyroid and adrenal issues, hormone imbalances, blood sugar issues, autoimmunity and much more. Often low levels of essential fatty acids, protein, vitamins and minerals will show up in the nails, and there are some medical conditions that can cause the nails to become abnormal.
Zinc Level Test – Zinc is very important for the immune system. It is also required by the body to grow new cells and replace damaged ones, so if you have low zinc levels your body will not be able to repair itself properly. (Australian soils are usually low in zinc.) We employ a Zinc Tally Test to accurately measure your zinc levels.
At Centenary Natural Therapies Clinic we also provide the following services:
Brisbane Natural Fertility Management – is a major speciality of our clinic, with 3 of our therapists highly trained and experienced in this area. Recent estimates are that one in six couples are classed as infertile, and fertility problems affect one in three women over 35, so this is a very significant problem in Australia. Something that should be easy and natural is becoming increasingly harder, and more and more couples are seeking effective solutions from our clinic.
Weight Loss – any experienced therapist will tell you, that if you don’t address the causes, you won’t get good results, or get short-term improvement only. If you are eating well, exercising, and still not losing weight, something is causing your body to store fat instead of burn it up. We conduct a detailed analysis of why your body is wanting to retain excess weight, and provide you with a program that is tailored to the exact needs of your body.
Traditional Chinese Medicine – a complete medical system used to relieve pain and to treat or prevent disease. For around 3 thousand years, the Chinese and Japanese used a combination of Acupuncture, Chinese herbal remedies (herbs), diet, exercise and massage to address the causes and symptoms of health problems.
Stop Smoking – quitting smoking is one of the most important things you can do to improve your health. We have possibly the most advanced Stop Smoking treatment program available. As well as controlling any cravings, the treatments help detoxify your body, repair your lungs, improve your heart, and reduce stress. This detailed approach helps to minimise the chance of any relapse, and one treatment is all that is normally required.
