Iridology is the art & science of analysing the colour & structure of the iris to gain valuable health information in a non-invasive way. A person's inherent strengths & weaknesses as well as the general state of health, is all revealed in the eye. Iridology reveals acute, sub-acute, chronic and degenerative stages of tissue breakdown in the body organs. Iris patterns are as unique as fingerprints and reveal much information about your state of health and can be used as a guide for prevention of health problems later in life if potential problems are addressed early enough.
Heavy Metal Toxicity Testing
Hair mineral analysis is an analytical test that measures nutrient and toxic mineral content of hair. Using state-of-the art equipment, an analyse of the hair sample for a broad range of 40 essential, non-essential as well as toxic elements. The result provides the practitioner with a comprehensive overview of the nutrient and toxic mineral content of the patient’s hair. Tests are done on Aluminium, Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Strontium and others.
Chronic or lower levels of exposure can lead to progressive peripheral and central nervous changes, such as sensory changes, numbness and tingling, and muscle tenderness. A symptom typically described is a burning sensation ("needles and pins") in hands and feet. Neuropathy (inflammation and wasting of the nerves) is usually gradual and occurs over several years. There may also be excessive darkening of the skin (hyper pigmentation) in areas that are not exposed to sunlight, excessive formation of skin on the palms and soles (hyperkeratosis), or white bands of arsenic deposits across the bed of the fingernails (usually 4-6 weeks after exposure). Birth defects, liver injury, and malignancy are possible. (Arsenic has also been used in homicides and suicides.)
Chronic exposure to lead may result in birth defects, mental retardation, autism, psychosis, allergies, dyslexia, hyperactivity, weight loss, shaky hands, muscular weakness, and paralysis (beginning in the forearms). Children are particularly sensitive to lead (absorbing as much as 50% of the ingested dose) and are prone to ingesting lead because they chew on painted surfaces and eat products not intended for human consumption (e.g., hobby paints, cosmetics, hair colourings with lead-based pigments, and even playground dirt). In addition to the symptoms found in acute lead exposure, symptoms of chronic lead exposure could be allergies, arthritis, autism, colic, hyperactivity, mood swings, nausea, numbness, lack of concentration, seizures, and weight loss.
Chronic exposure to mercury may result in permanent damage to the central nervous system (Ewan et al. 1996) and kidneys. Mercury can also cross the placenta from the mother's body to the fetus (levels in the fetus are often double those in the mother) and accumulate, resulting in mental retardation, brain damage, cerebral palsy, blindness, seizures, and inability to speak.
Dental amalgam is also suspected as being a possible source of mercury toxicity from chronic exposure. Some physicians suggest that amalgam fillings could be part of the explanation for the explosion of learning problems and autism in children since World War II, a time period corresponding with the introduction and widespread use of mercury amalgam (O'Brien 2001). Studies in both animals and humans have confirmed the presence of mercury from amalgam fillings in tissue specimens, blood, amniotic fluid, or urine.

Western Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine is the careful combination of herbs, to treat many conditions, such as, eczema, premenstrual syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, asthma, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, infertility and menopausal symptoms and much more. Due to the chemical constituents of certain herbs, they can have a dramatic and overall beneficial effect on most health conditions.
Nutritional Medicine employs the principle that Nutrition play a very important role in virtually every medical condition. Addressing any nutritional deficiencies and adopting a healthy balanced diet is of great importance. Nutrients (vitamins, amino –acids, enzymes, minerals, fatty acids and glycol-nutrients) can be used therapeutically to assist in most under lying physical factors which are contributing to disease states. For example, nutrient and non-nutrient bio-active compounds can increase or decrease the level of important chemicals in the body, reduce inflammation, influence hormonal balance, reduce levels of toxic chemicals, improve immune function, reduce oxidative stress, alter genetic expression and reduce coagulation of the blood.
