There are a vast variety of tests available at the clinic or through private pathologies. Vivienne can advise you which tests are most suitable for you.
General tests that are included FREE in the price of an Initial Naturopathic Consultation include:
Iridology is the study and analysis of the iris. Like a miniature recording screen, the iris can gauge the status of human health. The iris is connected to many nerves that come from various parts of the body and subsequently displays their nerve activity, revealing the health of the related body part. Disturbances related to the structure, pathology, psychological and emotional nature of the person, leave their impression upon the iris. Each of us will have a dominant Constitution Type which is like a “blueprint” of who we are. This is determined by the colour and structure of our iris and does not change during our lifetime. Our constitution may indicate whether we are the emotional type who is prone to stress, if we have a tendency towards allergies, are prone to poor digestion, liver difficulties etc.
During an iridology consultation, Vivienne will describe your constitution type, examine for potential areas of weakness, toxicity or inflammation and observe for digestive markers. Dietary and nutritional advice may be guided by iris findings.
