Benefits of Comprehensive Diagnostic Testing in Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine has grown in popularity over the past decade. This is because many people have found that traditional medicine focuses on the symptoms and does not answer the health concerns at the root. Instead of working for the patient, our integrative medical practice looks to work with the patient. Each patient is unique and has unique circumstances that culminate in their overall wellness. 

Though integrative medicine uses a plethora of avenues to create a personalized and comprehensive plan to treat your current health concerns as well as prevent future ones from arising there is still a need for comprehensive diagnostic testing. This is because our bodies are all made up of interconnected systems and even the slightest build-up or disturbance can cause severe ramifications.

In order to make sure, we have all the information on hand before we begin working with us to find an answer to your concerns we have to do some diagnostic testing. We offer several options and our use of these brings with it a wealth of benefits that we and you can take advantage of to build a better path to wellness.

These diagnostic tests that we have done are done using world-class lab services and tools to give us a deeper look at what is going on in the patient’s body. These tests can show exactly where the systems in one’s body are not working properly. Having this knowledge will then allow our doctors at Shakthi Health and Wellness to create treatment plans that correct these systems within your body.

In other words, the biggest benefit that comes from utilizing these diagnostic tests in our patients’ treatments allows us to customize everything in that plan down to the minutest detail. We can then look at the patient and utilize the appropriate whole-body approach to their medical treatment.

Evoke Cognitive Test 

This cognitive assessment is a form of therapeutic training for the brain. Evoke applies electroencephalography (EEG) to reveal brain health biomarkers in an objective way. Those who suffer from Dysregulated EEG patterns may find their daily activities difficult to focus on or even remember. These patterns have been linked to memory loss, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, and depression.

This non-invasive assessment is safe and effective, allowing providers to correctly diagnose cognitive disorders and conditions. This test provides information regarding brain health and identifies areas of the brain that are under-functioning. These results allow your doctor to establish an appropriate treatment plan to optimize your brain health and function.    

Body Impedance Analysis 

An ideal assessment for athletes and individuals improving their nutritional wellness, the Body Impedance Analysis (BIA) measures body fat in relation to lean body mass.  Measuring your body composition reveals the rate at which electrical current can travel through the body. 

The electrical current is directly affected by the amount of water present in the body, and this analysis measures how the current is “impeded” through different types of tissue. Body fat causes greater resistance (i.e. “impedes the current”) than other body mass tissue. This assessment is a vital marker for health and wellness improvement.

Cambridge Brain Sciences Cognitive Assessment 

The Cambridge Brain Sciences (CBS) assessment is a cognitive examination that can be uniquely tailored to your brain health needs. CBS can monitor your cognitive health and indicates any necessary changes to cognitive treatment or medication. Individuals can take the brain health assessment comfortably behind a computer screen, with accurate results that quantify brain function and ability.

EKG/ECG 

Commonly referred to as an EKG or an ECG, an electrocardiogram is an assessment that checks for heart disease indicators. These examinations monitor and record the natural electrical activity of your heart through small electrode patches. These exams are safe, quick, and pain-free.

This assessment can diagnose a heart attack, determine the health of your blood circulation, and check heart rhythm. This exam can be utilized by individuals to improve heart health and cardiovascular strength. 

Heart Rate Variability 

This assessment is utilized when evaluating an individual's stress level by examining the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). The ANS is a critical component of the body’s nervous system, dictating the release of “fight or flight” hormones.

This test is beneficial for individuals who are looking to improve their emotional health for improved physical health. Ideal for an integrative medicine approach, athletes can also utilize this test to discover “triggers” and develop strategies to gain better control of their ANS.  

Digital Pulse Analysis 

An FDA-approved assessment, this device measures and analyses pulse waveforms and heart rate. Using a non-invasive infrared light probe, this assessment examines the elasticity of the heart’s arteries and the density of blood. This allows your physician to graph the pulse of blood that circulates from your heart.
