BIM Screening

Bioelectrical Impedance Measurement (BIM) is an advanced health profiling instrument that is non-invasive, safe and quick. It’s software module effectively analyses, profiles and interprets impedance measurement data to present client profiles in a simple, effective and easy to use format.

The BIM Assessment is a state-of-the-art tool designed to measure 58 different electrical “circuits” in your body related to specific organs and systems. These circuits map the meridian system known to acupuncture theory. Your measurements are then compared against a database of over 1.5 million tests to identify areas of your body that have moved away from the norm. With that powerful information the BIM assessment software will assist in effectively formulating a comprehensive support programme that includes detailed recommendations for an optimal supplementation regimen customised to your specific needs.

Accurate and objective results are available in under 30 minutes. The test results are colour-coded in an easy-to-understand take-home report containing your specific recommendations and monitoring can be tracked easily – visit to visit. The BIM assessment is based on the six-phase table of Homotoxicology.

Homotoxicology is the understanding that most diseases are considered to be ultimately caused by toxins, whether toxic chemicals, bacterial exotoxins, biological endotoxins, post-traumatic cellular debris and also by-products of the bodies metabolic processes.

Disease symptoms are the result of the body’s attempt to heal itself. Homotoxins include, dysbiosis (unhealthy micro-organisms in the gut) often due to an unhealthy diet, HRT, antibiotics, chronic yeast infections (candida), toxic mercury amalgam fillings, gas, diesel and petrol fume intolerance, exposure to unhealthy electro- magnetic fields, pesticides, and undiagnosed bacteria.

BIM health screening can also accurately monitor your nutritional levels, hormone balance, food sensitivities, environmental sensitivities and toxin levels. The results from health screening allow accurate recommendations of herbs, nutritional supplementation and remedial action to promote health and healing. A printout of the results is provided immediately with a summary of findings and recommendations.
