Soza Health Assessments Hero

Soza Health Assessment

I am proud to be collaborating with Soza Health and to be able to offer a 50 minute full body systems Soza Health Assessment at my beautiful clinic in Lewes, East Sussex on a monthly basis.

Soza Health Assessment takes 50 minutes, conducted by a registered Soza nurse practitioner it involves 9 short, non-invasive, point of care tests. No laboratory analysis is required. By collating 120 data readings a detailed picture of your health can be seen. You will leave with a complete Health Report.

Prevention is better than cure

How healthy are you really? Very few people are 100% healthy. Many of us can feel healthy without realising that lifestyle and nutritional habits might be increasing the risk for ill health even in the absence of symptoms.

The Soza Health Assessment fits beautifully into my Functional Medicine training as it is designed to identify imbalances in the body and the underlying potential for current and future health issues that might affect health, fitness wellbeing that could lead to dis-ease. It is a truly preventative, lifestyle health assessment that will provide information that will empower you to enhance your health, wellbeing and vitality.

Your Soza Health Report

The Soza Health Report is designed to help you answer the following questions:

  • How is my health today?
  • What are the risks to my health today?
  • What can I do to improve my health and stay healthy?

The report is available to view immediately and then again online, on mobile phone and on computer etc, in your own time. 

The report displays a percentage risk score for each one of these systems and is a personalised resource that provides a picture of your overall health today and includes information to help you attain higher degrees of wellbeing and vitality. The Soza nurse practitioner will review your personalised report with you and help plan your diet and lifestyle choices. It also forms a fantastic resource of information about your health if you are booking in to see Tanya as a private client.

The report produces risk scores for each of the following key areas of health:

  • Vital organ function - heart, kidney, lung
  • Cardiovascular function
  • Diabetes, insulin resistance and syndrome X potential 
  • Infection and disease
  • Autonomic nervous system function
  • Metabolism and cell membrane function

Detailed Testing Information

  1. Hypertension – High blood pressure.  Hypertension puts strain on the heart as it has to work harder to push blood around the body. If left untreated it can lead to heart disease and is a major risk factor for stroke, aneurysm and kidney disease.  High blood pressure rarely presents symptoms and can be identified at an early stage by looking at central blood pressures in the heart. Early identification and intervention can dramatically reduce health risks.
  2. Hypotension – Low Blood Pressure.  Low blood pressure can cause light-headedness and dizziness, and if excessively low can lead to fainting or seizures. Reduced blood volume is the most common reason for hypotension and is caused by low fluid intake, haemorrhage, excessive fluid loss due to diarrhoea or vomiting, or the overuse of certain medications.
  3. Orthostatic Hypertension. This is a sudden increase in blood pressure when standing up. Mild to moderate orthostatic hypertension shows no symptoms and can only be identified through screening. Its prevalence increases with age and it is a risk factor in arterial disease and stroke.
  4. Orthostatic Hypotension. This is a fall in blood pressure when standing up and can cause head rush or dizziness and, in extreme cases, fainting.  It results from a pooling of the blood in the lower extremities leading to a reduced arterial blood pressure. It is more prevalent in the elderly and people with low blood pressure and is associated with atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), diabetes, and some neurological disorders including Parkinson’s disease.
  5. Adrenal Health. The adrenal glands secrete hormones in response to stress which act to promote an adequate stress response. They also moderate many metabolic processes including the regulation of blood sugar and the body’s utilisation of carbohydrates and fats.  Compromised adrenal function in response to acute or chronic stress can diminish both gastrointestinal and cardiovascular function and cause fatigue, changes in weight, poor sleep patterns, depression and anxiety. The management of stress, nutritional balance, and a healthy lifestyle are major factors in maintaining efficient adrenal function.
  6. Hardening of the Arteries, Capillaries and Left Ventricular Function. Also known as ageing and atherosclerosis, hardening of the heart, arteries and capillaries is common and occurs when the blood vessels carrying oxygen and nutrients from the heart to the rest of the body lose elasticity and become stiffer and when they become constricted due to the build-up of fatty plaques and cholesterol.  This puts additional stress on the cardiovascular system especially during moments of high stress or exertion and elevates the risk of heart attack, stroke and aneurysm. The ageing process is closely related to diet and exercise.
  7. Cardiac Power. The Left Ventricle of the heart is responsible for pumping blood around the body. It changes with age and its efficiency can be compromised by disease, stress, activity level and diet.
  8. Heart Rhythm. Irregularities in the normal functioning of heartbeat may include atrial fibrillation and arrhythmia – the rapid or irregular beating of the heart.  This can result in palpitations, chronic fatigue and heart pain and significantly increases the risk of stroke.
  9. Cardiac Response to Stress. Stress testing of the heart uncovers hidden abnormalities and tests the efficiency of your heart and nervous system response under stress.
  10. Cholesterol Levels. Blood analysis for high or low levels of total cholesterol. Readings outside the normal range can indicate increased risk of heart disease, impaired brain and nerve function and stiffening of muscle groups.
  11. Autonomic Nervous System. Measuring the balance of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). The ANS controls all the involuntary functions of the body including heart rate, digestion and breathing. Balancing the two core parts of the ANS, the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems, is essential to good health.
  12. Muscular Tension and Relaxation Efficiency.  Testing for levels of muscular tension and inefficient muscle function. This can be related to a mineral deficiency and can affect your muscular, skeletal and bodily functions including those of the bowel and the bladder.
  13. Adaptive Response to Stress. Adaptive Reserve is an indicator of how well the body and mind handle stress and change in our lives.
  14. Metabolism.  The metabolic rate is an indication of how the body uses energy including its fat burning efficiency.  A metabolic rate outside the normal range can have implications for energy levels, blood pressure and adrenal function.
  15. Blood Oxygen Carrying Capacity. The efficiency with which oxygen from the lungs is taken up into the red blood cells for transport to organs and tissues where it is required for efficient respiration and function. Insufficient oxygen delivery by the blood can result in hypoxia and compromise the function of organs such as the brain and heart.
  16. Intra and Extracellular Water. Measurements of the overall water content in the body as well as water distribution at a cellular level give information about hydration and water retention, cell membrane integrity, electrolyte and mineral imbalance, and efficient kidney function.
  17. Cell Membrane Integrity. The efficiency of the semi-permeable membrane that surrounds the cells in your body and allows the passage of water, nutrients and waste materials is critical to good health. Imbalances in pH, hydration, minerals and ions will reduce the ability of the cells to perform their proper function.
  18. Acidosis.  Testing for increased acidity in the body that can put increased strain on the body’s buffering mechanisms, by measuring the pH of saliva and urine. Acidosis affects cellular metabolism and is linked to respiratory problems, decalcification of the bones, digestive problems, muscle cramps and arthritis.
  19. Alkalosis. Testing for increased alkalinity in the body that can put increased strain on the body’s buffering mechanisms, by measuring the pH of saliva and urine. Alkalosis can result in muscle pain, cramps and spasms.
  20. Kidney and Bladder Function. Urine analysis for signs of infection and for overall kidney function.  Imbalances in salts and water in the blood can impair the effective filtering of the blood by the kidneys, and also adjust glucose reabsorption, detrimentally affect acid-base homeostasis and alter blood pressure regulation.
  21. Diabetes and Insulin Resistance. Testing the efficiency of the body to utilise or store glucose present in the blood after meals reveals any tendency towards insulin resistance which can lead to diabetes.
  22. Hypoglycaemia and Hyperglycaemia. Testing for blood glucose levels helps to identify a diabetic or prediabetic profile. There are various factors that can contribute to this including poor nutrition, dehydration and genetics.
  23. Syndrome X. Syndrome X, also known as Metabolic Syndrome, is a pre-diabetic state where the body is not using sugar properly and instead of providing the cells with the energy they need, glucose is being converted and stored as fat. This can result in muscular weakness, fatigue, dizziness, weight-gain or obesity, and cravings for sugar or stimulants. Syndrome X can be reversed through good nutrition and exercise.
  24. Liver Function. Measuring triglyceride content in the blood and Bilirubin in urine. Readings outside the normal range can indicate that the liver is not filtering the blood effectively which is indicative of poor diet and/or high toxicity. Left untreated this can lead to digestive inefficiency, high cholesterol, diabetes and syndrome X.
  25. Oxidative Stress. Oxidative stress occurs when toxins such as reactive oxygen species irritate and damage cells, genes and tissues. This has been associated with the development of numerous illnesses including cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular disease, heart failure and chronic fatigue syndrome.
  26. Lung Function. Testing for constriction and obstruction of the lungs and airways including asthma, allergic reactions and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
  27. Nutrition Imbalance. Balance between the nutritional 5 a day of protein, carbohydrate, fats, water and minerals/vitamins is the foundation of good health. Imbalanced nutrition can lead to a host of health problems including weight issues, impaired metabolism, acidosis and malnutrition.
  28. Physiological Signs of Stress. Physical signs of stress in the body and responses to physical stressors can be determined by measuring energy levels, changes in blood pressure and heart rate, autonomic nervous system balance and response to stressful stimuli. An inadequate stress response directly affects physical and mental wellbeing and can contribute to disease in many body systems.   
  29. Sodium Levels. Evaluation of sodium in urine. Readings outside the normal range can indicate over-consumption of dietary salt, dehydration and/or potential high blood sugar levels.
