Nutritional/Metabolic Examination

I start off with a thorough review of your comprehensive medical and health history. Next, vital signs are taken including resting pulse, oxygen saturation, blood pressure (supine & standing) and respiratory rate. Next is a comprehensive assessment that obtains key information often missing from conventional examinations. I palpate the abdomen (similar as done in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine). I evaluate your physical constitution by looking at your nails, tongue, eyes (iris analysis), and general complexion from a functional medicine perspective. This is where your ‘biological computer’ as I like to call it, can display much-needed information and guide me where to look, and what to ask.
