At Vingyana, we provide and use the following tests for diagnostics and monitoring purposes.
ALCAT Test is used to identify immune reactions to various foods, food additives, environmental chemicals, medicinal herbs, moulds, antibiotics and other anti-inflammatory agents.
A whole blood sample collected in sodium citrate is used for this test. It measures the patient’s response to each of the substances tested and classifies the response as reactive, borderline or non-reactive. A customised diet plan or substances to avoid can be recommended based on the findings. This improves the immune system balance.
Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan
A Computerized Tomography (CT Scan) or CAT scan is an imaging test that combines several x-rays taken from different angles and produces three dimensional cross section images of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues using a computer.
Oligo Scan is a device that is used to detect trace elements and toxic metals in the tissues.
A portable spectrometer device is used to collect the data from a blood, urine, faecal or hair sample of a patient and sent to the secure central Oilgo Scan server. The results can be obtained in about 20 seconds.
Oligo Scan is beneficial when prescribing supplementation that would enhance the natural individualised meal planning. If the patient suffers from metal toxicity, chelating techniques, supplements or lifestyle changes can be recommended.
