It’s More Than Just Your Weight: BIA

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)

 

While it is true being overweight can lead to a number of serious health problems, there is more to it than what the scale 3shows. You can be very thin and have dangerously high amounts of internal fat. A more accurate representation of your health is your ratio of lean body mass to fat mass.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a technology that allows us to measure your body composition with extreme accuracy. This quick and painless test will tell us if your muscle mass is healthy relative to the amount of fat, or if you are at risk for problems due to unhealthy amounts of fat tissue no matter what weight you are at.

The BIA also measures factors important in determining risk for poor health and disease- cell integrity and fluid balance- both of which provide an indication of the health of your cells. This is done by determining the level of cell damage due to stressors such as poor diet, toxic overload, lifestyle factors, nutritional deficiencies and even aging. Since disease and illness begins at the cellular level, cell integrity and normal fluid balance are necessary if we are to experience good health.

Because the BIA test gives us such an accurate analysis of the overall state of your internal health, we are able to make an effective program for healthy weight loss and measure your progress through subsequent testing.
