We are sorry, The Optimal Nutrition Evaluation (ONE) is currently unavailable.
Are the supplements you are taking right for you?
Are you taking vitamins and minerals just because they have been prescribed for you?
How do you know what is working, and what is going to waste?
When we talk about nutrition, most people think about consuming the’right’ foods, and taking the ‘right’ supplements. However, there is ahuge difference between the things you eat and swallow, and what isactually being absorbed into your body.
Ideally, we would get all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients thatwe need from the food that we eat everyday. Unfortunately though, poordiet, and low levels of nutrients in the food make this nearlyimpossible.
Many years of over-farming mean that the soil is not nutrient rich,and pesticides further deplete nutrient levels of the food. There arealso other factors that impede on attaining optimum levels ofnutrients. Malabsorption, thyroid dysfunction and poor utilization at acellular level mean that our bodies are often not getting what theyneed.
Because of all this, most of us require extra vitamins, mineralsand nutrients in the form of supplementation to balance the body.
But what vitamins are right for you? It’s not aone-size-fits-all theory. As individuals, we all have different vitaminand mineral needs. Though we may take a potent multivitamin in the hopeof getting extra nutrients; we all have different make-ups, and retainor require certain nutrients more than others. Therefore, we needdifferent levels of each nutrient depending on what is going on underyour skin.
Imagine if you could determine the EXACT level of vitamins and minerals that your body uses.
There would be no more guessing.. no more spending money onvitamins and minerals that you don’t need.. and no more spendinghundreds of dollars on expensive doctor’s bills for meaningless guesses.
In the past it has been practically impossible to know your precise needs.
This is why Emed is proud to announce the arrival of the Optimal Nutritional Evaluation Test (The ONE).
The ONE Test is a revolutionary new scientific approach to health. It will give you the answers that you seek.
The ONE Test will provide you with a comprehensive view of yourvitamin and supplement needs with just a single urine sample. Emed willinterpret the test results into an easy to read and personalised reportthat will give you the answers. Find out exactly which vitamins,minerals and nutrients you are lacking in, and which natural medicinesare suited for you.
Nutrition affects many aspects of our health, from arthritis andjoint pain, to depression, fatigue, heart disease, fertility, illhealth and eczema. But with a reliable nutritional test, such as theONE, you can start living the healthier life you seek.
The ONE Test is one of the only ways to see if you diet (orsupplement and natural medicine intake) is appropriate for your healthcondition or illness. This is performed using brand new scientifictesting procedures that have only just been introduced to Australia.
What does the ONE Test include?
The ONE Test measures three key categories of nutritional status:
Metabolic Analysis Profile
This assessment measures 39 key organic acids to evaluategastrointestinal function, cellular energy production, neurotransmitterprocessing and functional need for vitamins, minerals and co-factors.
These tests are performed on a urine sample. Urine contains a greatnumber of waste products from the body, and by analysing these, we canlearn a huge deal about what is going on in the internal workings ofthe body.
Gastrointestinal function: This profile measures eightmarkers that can reveal malabsorption and dysbiosis (imbalance of gutbacteria). From these results, we can prescribe specific supplements toimprove gut health, and to alleviate common causes of nutritiondeficiency such as chronic digestive problems, yeast overgrowth,gastrointestinal distress and degenerative conditions.
Cellular energy production: This profile assesses metabolites(substances produced from metabolism) that serve as importantintermediates in the citric acid cycle (metabolism). This cycle (alsoknown as Krebs cycle) supplies the body with its primary energy needs,converting 90% of food energy into cellular energy. If there isinterruption or dysfunction, impaired glucose (blood sugar) metabolismcan result. Imbalances of cellular energy are also linked with chronicfatigue, accelerated cell breakdown and unhealthy aging.
Neurotransmitter processing: A special grouping ofneurotransmitter metabolites serve as important indicators of abnormalmetabolism that can cause many key aspects of neuropsychiatricfunction. These markers are powerful neurotransmitters that act on thenervous system – including epinephrine, dopamine and serotonin -substances which can profoundly influence patterns of stress response,emotional well-being, sleep and cognition.
Functional need for vitamins, minerals and co-factors: Thistest provides a functional assessment of nutrient sufficiency and usagethat covers a huge range of vitamins, coenzymes, elements, enzymeactivators, and other nutrients. This analysis will identifydeficiencies of vitamins B6, B12 and C, magnesium, copper, iron, aswell as various amino acids.
From this component of The ONE, you will be able to identify exactlywhat you are lacking in. You will given the power to take control ofyour health with an educated knowledge and personalised naturalmedicine recommendations.
Amino Acid Analysis
We know that body-builders and gym-junkies concentrate on AminoAcids to give them hard bodies and defined muscles. However, AminoAcids play a significant role in the body – and with deficiency comesall types of illnesses.
The Amino Acid Analysis measures 38 amino acids to evaluate dietaryprotein adequacy, digestion, absorption, transport, metabolicimpairments and nutritional deficits including essential vitamins,minerals and amino acids.
Amino Acid Analysis can be an important part of any thoroughnutritional and metabolic analysis, especially in cases of chronic illhealth that have been difficult to diagnose or have failed to responseto treatment.
In addition to family history, a variety of presentingconditions may indicate disordered amino acid metabolism, includingchronic fatigue, frequent headaches, chronic digestive dysfunction,intolerances to foods and chemicals, chronic inflammation, depression,learning disabilities, malnutrition, neurological disorders or symptomsof degenerative disease.
If you find yourself feeling ill, depressed, or constantlytired, and are sick of running from practitioner to practitioner payingfor ‘guesses’, then this test may really benefit you.
The Amino Acid Analysis tests 38 amino acids and relatedproducts, while Emed will interpret these hard-to-understand testresults into a comprehensive personalised report.
Amino Acid deficiencies can lead to many different types of ill health and conditions, including:
|¶?¶½ Alcoholism||,¶?¶½ Hypertension|
|,¶?¶½ Ammonia toxicity||,¶?¶½ Hypotonia|
|,¶?¶½ Ataxia||,¶?¶½ Inflammatory disorders|
|,¶?¶½ Behavourial disorders||,¶?¶½ Insomnia|
|,¶?¶½ Cardiovascular disease||,¶?¶½ Mental retardation|
|,¶?¶½ Chemical intolerances||,¶?¶½ Myopathies|
|,¶?¶½ Depression||,¶?¶½ Neural tube defects|
|,¶?¶½ Dermatitis||,¶?¶½ Neurological dysfunction|
|,¶?¶½ Detoxification impairments||,¶?¶½ Ocular disorders|
|,¶?¶½ Excessive inflammation||,¶?¶½ Oxidative stress|
|,¶?¶½ Hyperlipidaemias||,¶?¶½ Vitamin and mineral deficiencies|
By identifying your deficient amino acids, you will be able toactively supplement with the required amino acids supplements and ‘fillin the gaps’ in your diet.
Oxidative Stress Analysis
The cells in our body are constantly under attack from damagingmolecules known as free radicals. Free radicals are produced as aresult of various bodily processes like digestion and respiration. Thedamage caused by free radicals is known as oxidative stress.
Nutrients that neutralise free radicals as known as anti-oxidants.Anti-oxidants seek out free radicals, neutralising and preventing themfrom causing further damage. The main known antioxidants are Vitamin A,C, E, CoQ10 and Selenium.
Oxidative stress can cause serious consequences, and is thought tobe a contibuting factor in many conditions such as cancer,cardiovascular disease and conditions affecting the immune system,liver, kidneys, lungs and the nervous system.
Free radical damage is also well known as contributing to the aging process.
An Oxidative Stress Analysis can provide valuable information aboutthe level of oxidative stress in the body. This analysis uses markersto determine the degree of free radical activity in the body, and theavailability of anti-oxidants.
The ONE Test would be particularly useful for anyone suffering from the following conditions:
|,¶?¶½ Alcohol induced problems||,¶?¶½ Drug toxicity|
|,¶?¶½ Alzheimer’s disease||,¶?¶½ Emphysema|
|,¶?¶½ Arthritis||,¶?¶½ Cardiovascular disease|
|,¶?¶½ Auto-immune diseases||,¶?¶½I nflammatory bowel disease|
|,¶?¶½ Cancer||,¶?¶½Iron overload|
|,¶?¶½ Eczema and dermatitis||,¶?¶½Kidney disorders|
|,¶?¶½ Diabetes and related symptoms||,¶?¶½Liver cirrhosis|
|,¶?¶½ Nutrient deficiencies||,¶?¶½Parkinson’s disease|
|,¶?¶½ Premature aging||,¶?¶½Lung conditions|
Not only does the ONE Test measures your exact vitamin, mineral andnutrient requirements (referred to as urinary metabolic profiling), italso includes these 2 other analysis’ of key categories of nutritionalstatus to really detect where your health falls short.
Why is the ONE Test So Good?
Even if you are eating a ‘balanced’ or healthy diet and takingsupplements, you could still lack vital and necessary nutrition. TheONE test will help you understand your individual diet, nutritional andsupplement needs.
The ONE Test offers a value-for-money approach to better health by providing you with 3 comprehensive tests for the price of 2.
The ONE test assess your functional needs for nutrients, amino acids and oxidative stresses.
This unique profile:
- Requires only one first morning void urine sample with easy ‘at-home’ collection
- Evaluates the your complete overall nutritional status
- Assess the functional need for vitamins and minerals
- Includes an innovative ‘Interpretation at a glance’, providing clear, personalised recommendations for supplementation on:
- B Group Vitamins
- Amino Acids
No ‘hunches’. No guessing. Just Science.
Who should take the ONE Test?
In reality virtually every person could benefit from this test, irrespective of whether they have obvious symptoms or not.
This is the most comprehensive test available to assess your functional needs for nutrients, amino acids and oxidative stress.
Unlike traditional lab tests that focus on disease pathology (orwhat made you sick), the ONE offers comprehensive panels that combinestandard and innovative biomarkers designed to provide a more completeunderstanding of specific biological systems that can help peopleachieve optimal health.
As more people take an active role in managing their health and asmore clinicians focus on prevention, this diagnostic tests provides themost complete picture of health that can help identify problems beforechronic conditions and diseases develop.
Conversely if you are unwell or have a chronic health complaint thenthe ONE will help you to develop a unique and scientifically basednutritional strategy to improve your health.
What clinical conditions could be helped by taking the ONE?
All people suffering from chronic or complex conditions would benefit from taking the ONE test.
Specifically those with:
- Diabetes mellitus
- All forms of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and osteoarthritis
- Cardiovascular disease including atherosclerosis and congestive heart failure
- Macular degeneration
- Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease
- Neuromuscular problems such as chronic back pain, headaches, neck or spinal pains
- Myofascial pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia, diffuse muscular or joint pains
- Austistic spectrum disorders including ADD, ADHD, learning difficulties and autism
- Fatigue, energy and mood disorders including chronic fatigue and depression
Can Athletes be helped by the ONE?
In a word YES.
The ONE is the most comprehensive test available to fine tune athletes, body builders and all sports orientated people.
For the first time, a test is available to legitimately improvesports performance in a scientific manner, that would normally bereserved for the most elite athletes of the world.
Normally this type of scientific analysis of metabolic and traceamino acid requirements would only be available to a handful of eliteathletes in venues such as the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS).
Now with Dr. Hooper’s Victorian (VIS) and Australian Institute ofSport (AIS) background, you can have access to the same testing as thesuper elite.
The ONE is a must for every serious athlete.
It is the only way you can tell if you are lacking in traceminerals, vitamins or individual amino acids that could be thedifference between you winning or losing.
Why take the One Test?
It is the most comprehensive functional evalution your individual,specific metabolic requirements for nutrients, amino acids andanti-oxidants.
No other test comes close.
No guessing – Just science.
What are the Benefits of the ONE Test?
You will finally know if your nutritional strategy is working correctly for you.
With the information gained from the test you will know, in exactamounts and with Emed’s help what are your deficiencies and what to doabout it.
The ONE gives specific individualised nutritional requirements foranti-oxidants, B group vitamins and trace minerals that arefunctionally out of balance in your body.
It also proves insight into disease risk and treatment options forgastrointestinal dysfunction, detoxification, methylation,neurotransmitter balance and need for probiotics or management ofdysbiosis.
