What is a Wellness Screening?
A Wellness Screening is designed to identify key areas of your health and wellness that can lead to chronic degenerative disease processes if they are out of balance with your body. Early detection, identification and solution based intervention is a critical key to long term wellness.
The Dr Burdell will discuss your health concerns; address issues that conflict with your health and wellness goals that effect changes in your day to day life, saving you time and money. I am pleased to work with you to coach you, in evaluating your health and helping you to avoid or interrupt the downward spiral that can affect your health index.
Health Screening Components
You will be asked to fill out a “Stress Survey” to help you discover how stress is affecting you.
Your blood pressure may be checked in two positions, sometimes referred to as Ragland’s Test, to check for properly functioning adrenal glands. Significant drops in blood pressure during this procedure may be an indicator of stress and malfunction in your adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are known as the “fight or flight” glands in your body. These glands produce approximately 40 different hormones, including adrenalin, cortisone, cortisol, epinephrine, nor-epinephrine to name a few that are crucial to your body being able to withstand the “stress of life”
We may also give you a saliva pH test to measure your body’s acid base balance. Signs of biochemical imbalance may reflect one’s health and wellness well as environmental and chemical toxicity. The saliva pH test can help assure that your body is within a reasonable range of ph / function that will allow your body optimal body functioning. Optimal saliva pH range is from 6.75 to 7.25. The examiner momentarily places diagnostic strips, similar to those that could be used in testing blood sugar levels, on the tongue. The color change of the strip is matched against a chart or table to determine your body’s current pH or acid / base balance.
I have recently introduce WICO® Testing for our patients. This is an essential step for anyone that has struggled with wellness issues like insulin resistance, elevated blood sugar, blood pressure or bad lipids. This test can help us pinpoint food intolerances, and nutritional deficiencies while determining the root cause of your symptoms. Please see our WICO® page for more information on this test.
Dr Burdell often finds that by focusing on the following three approaches: 1) removing the effects of trauma, 2) eliminating harmful effects of stress and 3) removing toxic chemicals from your body, we can help facilitate desired results with problems that were not alleviated before with other techniques and procedures.
I invite you to participate in a consultation at my office to determine the best course of action to get your body balanced and healthy.
