The immune system and white blood cells The immune system is the most dynamic indicator in determining our overall health and wellbeing.  A very complex and capable network responsible for defending us against germs that are trying to invade us daily, it plays a vital role in keeping us healthy.  It is on constant alert to determine what’s friend or foe, what’s foreign and what’s not and then responding accordingly.   The immune system is made up of specialised cells, tissues and organs.  Important among these are the white blood cells of which there are different types with different life spans, from a...

The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive metabolic snapshot of a patient’s overall health with 76 markers.  It provides an accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast and bacteria. Abnormally high levels of these microorganisms can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function. Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders often excrete several abnormal organic acids in their urine. The cause of these high levels could include oral antibiotic use, high sugar diets, immune deficiencies, acquired infections, as well as genetic factors. Our Organic Acids Test also includes markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress,...

A new study has revealed that people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have 50% more microplastics in their faeces than healthy controls. The concentration of microplastics was also higher for those with more severe IBD, suggesting an association between the two (1). Inflammatory bowel diseases, including crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, are complicated, chronic, relapsing conditions characterised by inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. More than 6.8 million people are currently estimated to be living with IBD worldwide, and the prevalence is rapidly rising (2). Although the cause of IBD remains unknown, evidence suggests that genetic, immunological, and environmental factors initiate inflammatory...
