Diagnostic Techniques

We have pioneered the use of many diagnostic techniques, but what sets Paracelsus apart is the manner in which we compose a complete picture of all the factors that have led to the patient’s illness, and therefore what must be changed to restore health. This is the opposite of the reductionist thinking of conventional medicine and its specialists, who ironically spend very little time looking at root causes of disease.

Our major diagnostic tools include:

  • In-depth health history and physical examination. Your initial examination may take more than an hour. In this time, your doctor will review your health history, your current situation and goals, examine you physically, and answer all your questions. During your stay, you will see your doctor an average of three times per week, and he or she will supervise every step of your daily care. At the initial physical examination, your doctor uses the information provided to explore and understand your body. You are examined by your doctor both clinically and personally. There is no standard checklist of vital signs to evaluate; instead, the physical exam you receive is personalized to your own situation. In addition to your physical condition, we use this aspect of the exam to determine the vitality of your energy, providing us further insights into your unique condition. At the conclusion of the physical exam your doctor will determine what diagnostic tests to run, offering the final piece of information we need to begin creating your therapy and treatment plan.

  • Darkfield microscopy. Just as every cell of your body contains your complete DNA, so every drop of your blood is a complete picture of your internal milieu, showing us the function of your digestion and immune system, levels of oxidative stress, disease tendencies, acidity and protein levels, bacteria and parasites, and much more. This helps us prioritize steps in your care and track your progress.

  • Blood tests for toxicity, metabolic function, genetic profile, immune function, allergy and digestion, and specific health conditions. Our test panels are state-of-the-art and provide invaluable insight into the reasons for the patient’s illness and health of major organs and systems. Recent innovations include the TKTL1 test for cancer aggressiveness and the PCA-3 test for prostate cancer.

  • Examination of intestinal flora to determine its health and impact on your immunity.

  • Heart rate variability testing (HRV). The heartbeat is remarkably complex, and subtle changes from beat to beat reflect a kind of conversation between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Now accepted as a critical diagnostic tool even by conventional cardiologists worldwide, what is unique at Paracelsus is our patented use of music in a feedback mechanism to help you train your parasympathetic system to enhance your healing and immune function, and our ability to tie HRV tests to other diagnostic and therapeutic measures.

  • Computerized Regulatory Thermography (CRT). This technique involves taking the skin temperature of 120 different points on the body, each corresponding to a specific organ of the body. Two sets of readings are taken – an initial reading and then a second reading after the patient has sat quietly in a room disrobed for 10 minutes. While the patient is sitting there disrobed, the body will naturally begin to cool and will be stimulated to try and regulate itself. By using a computer program to compare the two sets of readings, your doctor has another view into your internal environment and your ability to regulate yourself, assisting in identifying regulatory, metabolic, and organ dysfunction at a very early stage. CRT is also helpful in indicating whether you have possible food allergies so we know to perform additional tests to identify specific food allergies.

  • Other physical tests, including x-rays (especially dental pantagraph) and sonography. While x-rays are used sparingly, every patient is given a dental pantagraph to reveal loci of infection that so commonly appear alongside disease. Sonography is a safe, non-invasive means of examining tumors and especially good at measuring vascularity, a key indicator of tumor aggressiveness.
