There is no perfect diet that suits everyone. Getting anyone to a desired weight takes a lot more than simply prescribing a low calorie diet.
Sometimes difficulty losing weight stems from an underlying health complaint. If you have irregular menstrual cycles, low energy, unexplained weight gain, acne or male pattern hair growth, it will be important to have blood tests done to see check for an underlying cause to your excess weight.
REAL FOOD is used as your weight loss “medicine” along with nutritional and herbal support to ensure elimination of all toxins and balance of blood sugar levels. No meal replacements, starving or calorie counting is needed. And any diets undertaken with those methods will see short term benefits and long term anxiety.
Regular monitoring with BIA (bio impedance) screenings to ensure you are losing weight correctly (through fat loss instead of muscle or fluid loss), allows us to adjust your program as your health improves. This is a non-invasive, painless and quick screening, giving you a breakdown of your body composition.
Our weight loss method is based on a specific technology, with over 2000 published scientific studies behind it.
Detoxification is a commonly used term but do you need to detox?

Most people with toxicity develop a problem called “leaky-gut syndrome”. In a healthy digestive system the lining of the digestive tract serves as a filter, allowing beneficial nutrients like vitamins and amino acids to pass into the bloodstream, whilst keeping toxic bacteria and the waste products of what we ingest within the bowel.
Infection, medications, bad bacteria, yeasts, easily damage this filter and parasites, which then lead to an unregulated transport of only partially digested foods and waste into the body. This places tremendous stress on the other detoxification organs (kidneys, liver, bowel, skin) and ultimately the immune system.

Historically, the study of the eye can easily be traced back through civilization. The Chinese discerned health tendencies from the size shape and set of the eyes, and in Ayurvedic medicine the colour of the eyes is part of the description of a person’s Prakriti (constitution).
Modern Iridology is defined as the study and analysis of the coloured section of the eye known as the Iris. Every part of the body relates to a different section of the iris and this is looked at through a magnification torch.
Iridology can help individuals to understand the total picture of their health, providing a valuable cross-check for other forms of health evaluation. It be a useful diagnostic tool particularly for preventative health.
The iris can help reveal the potential disposition to certain health imbalances through an assessment of inherited and acquired tendencies. It is used to determine factors that may be important in the prevention of ill health, as well as working towards the attainment of optimal health. Iridology is included in consultations as a way to ascertain, which areas of the body are in most urgent need of support and which dietary changes would benefit the patient.
Iridology is a safe and non-invasive diagnostic method and can be of benefit to everyone. Due to light shining directly into the eye it is not recommended for people suffering with epilepsy.
