“The future of individualized medical care means thorough testing to find out what your individual needs are: nutrition status, hormones, adrenals, thyroid, DNA and toxic-load.”

A well documented cause of chronic disease and cancer is heavy metal toxicity. These can accumulate from birth and displace valuable minerals in your body to cause symptoms of disease.
Analysis of heavy metal and mineral levels in the body’s tissues, recommended for chronic diseases not responding to treatment and disease prevention.
Includes assessment of adrenal state, describing various deficiencies and excesses.
Root cause answers for various long-standing symptoms and diseases
Includes an Individualized Protocol prescribed by Dr Michael Venter.
Commitment of 6-12 months of heavy metal chelation/detox, gut optimization and nutrient replacement for optimal results.
Repeat test every 6 months, or as needed.
Supplements: R1200-R2000 per month for full chelation protocol (chelation drops, liver and kidney support, amino acids, vitamin and minerals dosed to your individual needs – this replaces most of your other supplements for the duration of chelation).
