We often know very little about our bodies and their potential when it comes understanding genetics and biochemistry that determine how long and how well we live. The Vitallife Wellness Centre makes a better understanding of this possible by turning data into information you can understand to help you make choices that promote good health and vitality. The centre treats over 15,000 patients every year, with most of them being from China, the US, and UAE.
Vitallife Wellness Centre, located in Bangkok, Thailand was established in 2001 as a subsidiary of the Bumrungrad International Hospital. Since its establishment the centre has gone on to receive several awards and accreditations. For instance, Vitallife was the first wellness centre in the world to be accredited by the DNV.GL which is a globally respected quality accreditation organisation, esteemed for integrity in certification, standards development and risk management in many sectors including the healthcare sector.
Preventative Screening and Treatments
Preventative screening is classified under preventative care which refers to health care services that are meant to check a person’s health status and keep the person healthy. Some of the preventive screening and treatment services offered at Vitallife are:
Cancer Screening and Treatment
- There is no doubt that cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide and with most cancers having no exact known cause, early detection and treatment is the best chance at curing this disease. Vitallife offers 3 types of cancer screening, including:
1. Heavy metal screening: This is a group of tests that are done to measure the quantity of specific potentially toxic metals, like mercury and lead, in the blood as well as the body’s ability to remove them.
2. Preventative cancer risk screening: This is recommended for people with a family history of cancer and those who would like to have their cancer risk assessed.
3. Advanced preventative cancer risk screening: This can also be done for people with a family history of cancer and those who want to assess the risk of reoccurrence.
How do these screening tests help?
- Cancer can be detected early even before the symptoms start appearing.
- Once cancer is found in the early stage, less time is spent on treatment and recovery.
- When cancer is treated at early stage, there is more chance of it being prevented from spreading to other organs in the body.
- If one is found to be cancer free, it gives a reassurance of health.
Hormone Screening and Treatment
Hormones are the chemical messengers that regulate the normal functioning of the different body organs. Hormone screening is carried out on hormones that have a direct impact on the basic functions like metabolism, sex drive, mood and even sleep, by determining the levels of these hormones. Some of the symptoms of hormone imbalance are:
- Hair loss
- Low sex drive
- Hot flashes
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
Once hormone screening is done, depending on the findings, supplementation or bio-identical hormone replacement or a change in lifestyle can be recommended to restore balance in your hormones. Bio-identical hormones can be given as injections, gels or creams.
How does hormone replacement therapy help?
- Helps one to feel stronger and more vibrant
- Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis as well as other conditions that can be caused by hormone imbalance
Helps to maintain an ideal weight
Antioxidants and Micronutrient Testing and Treatment
Micro-nutrients (vitamins and minerals) are very important in maintaining long-term optimal health. Factors like lifestyle, genetics and age can have an effect on the ability of the body to absorb and process micro-nutrients. Deficiency in these nutrients could lead to health problems and in turn contribute to aging as the cells of the body get damaged when there is lack of proper antioxidant protection.
Micro-nutrient screening involves measuring 18 core nutrients in the body, after which customised micro-nutrient supplements are given. These micro-nutrients are produced through a scientific process.
What do the Micro-nutrient supplements do?
The customized nutraceuticals boost the body’s immune function, prevent cellular oxidation that cause aging and increase energy levels.
Other Treatments Offered at Vitallife Screening and Treatments Centre:
This refer to Intravenous (IV) Therapy which basically focuses on delivering liquid substances directly to the vein to treat conditions like nutrient absorption disorders and dehydration.
