  1. Diet & Nutrition

  2. Assess and identify dietary imbalances, and their predisposing factors (eg. lack of understanding, food cravings and addictions, etc) and correct as far as possible.

  3. Assess, identify and correct all nutritional deficiencies and their causes and optimise nutrient status.  See Nutrition and Diet for more info.



  4. Allergies

  5. Assess, identify and treat all allergies/ intolerances/ sensitivities and their causes, and avoid the allergens or/and desensitise.  See Allergy for more info.



  6. Infection

  7. Assess and identify active infections and intestinal dysbiosis, and factors predisposing to them (immune dysfunctions, imbalanced intestinal microbiome, etc) and address as effectively as possible.  See Infections & Dysbiosis for more info.



  8. Toxins

  9. Assess and identify significant toxicities, their sources and other predisposing factors (impaired excretion / detoxification pathways, etc), minimise further exposures and reduce tissue levels to an absolute minimum.  See Toxicology Investigations for more info.



  10. EMF & EMR

  11. Assess, identify and reduce exposure to harmful radiation.  See information sheet EMF & Health for more info.



  12. Psychological

  13. Assess and identify all causative, predisposing or limiting factors on the psychological level - emotional, personal, occupational, relationship and life goal issues, etc.  See Psychological for more info.



  14. Rebalance Control Systems

  15. The functional efficiency of our physical systems is influenced in a very fundamental way by our subconscious energetic systems.  Many or most of the so called complementary therapies have an effect on these, eg. homeopathy, acupuncture/ TCM, Ayurveda, cranio-sacral therapy, reflexology, polarity therapy, hypnotherapy, kinesiology, healing, etc.  To use a computer analogy, this is rather like optimising/ resetting/ debugging the software (which can make a huge difference to a computer’s performance) - and can have profoundly beneficial effects when treatment is appropriately individualised.  See Homeopathic Medicine for more info.
