The year 2020 is already being touted as the year of health and wellness, with our cravings for self-care reaching epic levels.
Many of us are still on the New Year’s resolutions bandwagon, we’re increasingly turning vegan, we’re ramping up our exercise and we’re throwing back the kombucha.
And that’s a great thing, right?
When it comes to your health, there’s no shortage of products on the market, from lotions and potions to vitamins and supplements.
Some make us feel good but most make little to no difference. So what’s working and what’s not… or more importantly, how will we ever know?
After all, many dietary deficiencies don’t become evident until the damage is done.
Well, a groundbreaking new start-up in New Zealand may actually have the answer!
Marvel Health’s revolutionary body scanner can actually pinpoint with scientific accuracy exactly what is going on in your body.
“Smart health and tele-medicine are some of the hottest buzz words out there right now,” Marvel Health Co-Founder Tiamara Williams explains.
“But we’re actually leading real-world change in this field.”
A smart health screening and monitoring system designed for preventative and regenerative medicine, Marvel Health uses advanced, non-invasive diagnostic technology to provide state of the art analysis and reporting on every aspect of your health.
After an extensive total body scan, a full report is put together, outlining any areas of concern from all the systems in the body, including cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, nervous system, endocrine system, blood and lymph, urogenital, respiratory, skeletal, immune and sensory.
It not only checks the state of every organ in the body, but it also checks for the presence of disease and pre-disease indicators, picks up more than 150 microbes (such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites and worms), identifies 19 of the most toxic environmental contaminants and provides an extensive allergy profile.
A follow up consultation with their doctor or naturopath, will provide a full explanation of the report, with a recommended therapy plan to address the identified issues
“GPS are under increasing pressure to make a diagnosis within a 15-minute consultation, based on one symptom,” says Co-Founder Dr Machi Mannu, who has been running a similar model in Spain for seven years, before starting up in New Zealand.
Vitamin D is vital for bone and muscle function. Many of our aging population are prescribed this essential vitamin.
However, to achieve optimum function of vitamin D, you need selenium which is lacking in New Zealand soil.
In the absence of adequate selenium, vitamin D encourages absorption of toxic heavy metals such as mercury.
The scan can identify not only selenium and other essential micronutrients but also toxic metals present.
Already they are finding many New Zealanders have just that. That’s just one example of how the scanner can prevent deficiencies and ensure you are getting exactly what you need to get healthy and stay healthy.
A three-month follow up can track your progress, presenting you with a real-time report of your percentage improvement.
“We pinpoint exactly what’s wrong or what’s required and, from there, we recommend the use of compounds, minerals and enzymes etc which are all naturally found in the body or natural substances which are backed up by extensive clinical and scientific research,” Dr Mannu explains.
“We’re taking the guesswork out of medicine.”
