DIETETICS according to the Principles and Practice of Hippocratic Medicine
Hippocrates observed that each person had a dominent and subdominent temperament based on their birth data. During life, your diet, emotions, structure, daily habits and lifestyle choices can cause an imbalance in your unique temperament leading to ill health and a shorter life expectancy.
Welcome to the unique dietary program that is based on over 2500 years of research and practice. Over the last 50 years or so there has been many “fad” diets such as the Hay Diet (that doesn’t mean you have to eat hay!!), Atkin’s Diet, Blood Type Diet, Grapefruit Diet etc etc. They worked for some but left others frustrated. Why is this so?
They all missed out on the Tempero-Humoral component which didn’t match the diet with the dominant/subdominant temperament. Our weight-loss/body sculpturing program offers patients the opportunity to not only achieve their weight goal but also to maintain health and promote longevity.
Along with, when needed, structural rebalancing, lifestyle advice and resolution of emotional conflicts, the Asklepion centre for Tibb is unique in bringing the medical knowledge of 2500 years into the 21st century.
SO HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
Upon entering the Centre you will be greeted and given a medical history form to complete. There is an assistant on hand to help you if you have problems understanding the form. This is important for us to understand what has led to your current medical problems or failure to achieve your health goals.
Live Blood Analysis
A pin-prick of blood is taken from the end of your finger, mounted on a slide and viewed under a high powered dark-field miscoscope.
The image is displayed on a monitor so that both the dietician and patient can see the “live” blood moving and performing it’s duties.
From the images displayed on the monitor the dieticion can detect humoural imbalances, unresolved emotional conflicts, environmental toxins, auto-intoxification and metabolic imbalances, EMF contamination, poor lifestyle choices and interference fields.
The findings of the live blood analysis are recorded on a detailed explanatory form for both the clinic and the patient to retain.
Photographs or video of the live blood test can also be made depending on the dietician’s request.
Segmental Body Composition Analyzer
Ths machine calculates regional body composition empowering the dietician to objectively determine health risks associated with visceral and abdominal fat.
The BC-418 calculates whole-body composition and quantifies the following body segments:
Trunk Body fat%
Right Arm Fat mass
Left Arm Free fat mass
Right Leg BMI & BMR
Left Leg Total Body Water
A copy of the computer printout of the results are given to the patient and a copy retained by the dietician. The results are retained on a database allowing graphical changes of values to be monitored over time.
During the 2nd consultation the dietician will calculate your “birth” temperament, continue with question about your current lifestyle choices, career, hobbies, enviromental preferences to establish your current temperament and humoral imbalance.
A review of your medical history form will be made centred on past illnesses and their management and current health issues. It is important to bring all prescription medicines, non-prescription medicines, herbal/homeopathic remedies and dietary supplements.
You will be given a diet diary to record the food and drink consumed at each meal during the following week. This has to be completed before the next consultation.
FOOD TEST FOR REGULATORY BLOCKAGE
Over 200 common foods are tested for allergies, intolerance, regulatory blocking (both chemical and emotional) and remedies/supplements which the patient is currently taking using A.R.T.
A list of foods causing allergies or regulatory blockage is given to the patients at this stage.
Most chronic inflammatory diseases respond well to the allergy food exclusion program.
During the preceding week the dietician will review the results of the blood test, body analyser, food test, temperament assessment and medical history to present a diet plan and lifestyle changes for the patient.
In this consultation the patient and the dietician will discuss the outcome of the tests, temperament and food, and how to proceed with the changes.
A program with be given to the patient outlining the changes to be made over the following month.
During this time the patient has access to the dietician who will continue to monitor the nutritional program and offer advice wherever necessary.
Breaking the habit of poor dietary choices requires a lot of discipline and support. You dietician will be there for you as and when needed.
