Health & Wellbeing Testing is used to develop customized treatments to protect patients from risks against their health. It is a personalized report that identifies genetic predispositions and components from which diseases can develop and/or evolve. Based on the results of this test, patients are given therapeutic guidance with the appropriate prescriptions to fit their individual needs.
Preventive Genetic Tests help the physician and patient determine the best choices to improve health in terms of nutrition, lifestyle, and treatment. Once the report is thoroughly analyzed, doctors will be able to explain why certain medical methods do not work with one’s genetic makeup. Moreover, the patient will be given clear recommendations which can result in a modification in nutritional behavior, supplemental enhancement, or a physical exercise regimen. Morpho Clinic runs these tests in partnership with Laboratories Réunis of Luxembourg. Sub-tests under Genetic Profiling include the following:
Foodprint is a blood test that shows if our bodies are intolerant to some foods.Food intolerance or non-allergic food hypersensitivity is a negative reaction to a food, beverage, food additive, or compounds found in foods. Often patients report multiple symptoms such as gut pain with headaches and skin rash. Common Symptoms include:
• Anxiety (Acute or Chronic)
• Stress, Tension and a Sense of Frustration
• Constipation, Diarrhea, Bloating and Indigestion
• Headaches and Migraines
• Joint Pain and Roughness
• Asthma , Bronchitis or Chest Pain
• Water Retention
• Muscle Pain and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
• Itchy Skin
• Weight Control Problems
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Blood samples are collected at Morphoclinic and the sample will be analysed by using a new technology to detect IgG antibodies specific for over 200 foods.
The OligoScan technology is a quick and precise analysis method of the trace elements and heavy metals in human body tissues. The measurement is made directly at Morphoclinic with a portable spectrophotometer device approved by OligoScan. The collected data from the patient is sent to the secure central Oligoscan server within a few clicks.
This test is a revolutionary technique to check the mineral status in real time. It allows us to know the most efficient supplementation that would maximize the nutritional benefits of our patients. In case of heavy metal toxicity, we can prescribe chelating techniques, supplements and/or lifestyle changes.
OligoScan is the most innovative testing methodology with the fastest turn around of results available anywhere in the world.
The data is invaluable and makes for a very precious prevention tool allowing for a follow-up of the patients’ mineral status, key mineral ratios, heavy metal levels, mobilization of those metals and overall oxidative stress.
