Health Screening

Many common diseases are preventable through lifestyle changes or early treatment.  Some markers for common diseases can be identified before complex disease processes begin and before you reach a crisis point.  This allows early treatment so that you can avoid unpleasant health issues going forward. Getting a regular NCT for your body puts you back in the driving seat.

Health screening is ideal if you:

  • are looking for peace of mind
  • have a particular concern
  • have a family history of disease
  • have had previous personal health problems)
  • haven’t been feeling the best lately

Or if you want to:

  • take control of your health
  • avoid a health crisis
  • manage your own disease risk factors

Our health screening will help you to Identify potential issues early to improve the chances of successful treatment, move towards a healthier lifestyle and reduce your risk of disease as you get older.
