During your Health Renewal consultation and in-depth medical history discussion, the attending Doctor will advise on certain blood tests to determine any imbalances in hormone, vitamin, mineral and nutraceuticals levels.
Blood analysis is done at an Ampath / PathCare Laboratories in the Western Cape, and at Lancet Laboratories in the Gauteng Region. Your Doctor, or manager at the Health Renewal clinic you visit, will advise on your closest location to have these done.
After you have given a blood sample and the required tests have been performed your results will be sent through to the attending Doctor who will investigate your results. This will be discussed in detail at your follow-up appointment.
For hormone imbalances your attending Doctor will prescribe a Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement product (either a cream or pellet, which is inserted superficially underneath the skin) and this will alleviate any hormonal symptoms due to imbalance.
If you have any other nutraceutical imbalances you will be prescribed specific supplements to correct these imbalances.
It is vitally important to not self-medicate. Your Doctor will explain exactly how to use your recommended supplements, in the right quantity, combination and time frame, to ensure you get the best possible benefits.Read More
