    Metabolic Screening

    Metabolic Screening is a modification of Full Body Screening, used as part of the assessment for the Weight Management Programme.

    Electro-Dermal Screening is a method of taking measurements from certain acupuncture point on the body - usually hands or feet - and using the results to gain information about various items, such as allergies, vitamin and minerals, hormones, and so on, but can also be used to assess the various body organs, glands and energy meridians.

    Metabolic Screening is used to test for the following:

    • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies

    • Allergies

    • Hormones

    • Organ / system function, including pancreas, liver, spleen, digestive system

    The test is designed to be comprehensive, and will include any such testing that is deemed necessary in the individual.

    Who Should Have the Test?

    The test is available to everyone.

    It would be particularly valuable for anyone wanting to lose weight, or control their weight.

    The test will help those people maximise their weight loss, and to maintain their weight loss.  

    How Is It Done?

    The test is carried out by taking a series of measurements from certain points (Acupuncture points) on either the hand or the foot.

    A simple probe is placed on the skin over these points - there are no needles involved - and a reading is taken and recorded.

    The results are printed out immediately after the test is carried out, and the results can be discussed.


    How Accurate are the Results and What Do They Mean?

    No test can be 100% accurate. This test is as accurate as any other methods using the same principles.

    At Better Health we have always approached new treatments, new tests and new therapies with an analytical, scientific approach – are they as good as they claim to be?

    There are no currently available test available through the conventional medical profession that provides this type of assessment.

    Other alternative tests include Vega testing, but the BEST system is quicker and more comprehensive in our opinion, and gives you results that are far easier to understand.

    What Advice Do You Get?

    Based on the results, this will enable us to tailor the Weight Management Programme according to your specific needs.

    Treatments advised by Better Health include various nutritional, herbal and homoeopathic medicines, and will depend very much on the results of the tests carried out. The Full Body Screening enables us to rationalise treatment in the best possible way.

    How Much Does it Cost?

    The current cost of Metabolic Screening is 140, but may vary at other Clinics. 

    Further charges apply for any further consultations, tests or treatments, and these will be discussed with you fully as necessary.
