Measuring Your Health With The BioPhotonic Scanner
Treasure Coast Urgent and Family Care is home to the first BioPhotonic Scanner in Martin County. Recently popularized on the Dr. Oz Show for helping with cancer prevention, the BioPhotonic Scanner is a revolutionary technology which measures the body’s carotenoid levels, resulting in a Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS). Factors which affect this score include:
- Body Fat
The SCS indicates a person’s long-term lifestyle habits, and places them on a scale from Low (10,000) to High (50,000+) based on the levels of carotenoid molecules in the body.
High carotenoid activity has been linked to cancer-fighting properties, increased nutrient absorption, and DNA-protection from free radicals. These findings are backed by years of scientific study and research, and in 2005 the Scanner received the Product Merit Award by the Nutrition Business Journal.
The BioPhotonic Scanner is the world’s first tool to measure carotenoid activity. The patient is seated at the testing table and simply places his or her hand in front of the small camera. The machine then scans the palm with blue light technology in less than two minutes!
The procedure is completely noninvasive and provides immediate evidence. Unlike other scanning or testing equipment patients may be familiar with, the BioPhotonic Scanner does not predict nor diagnose disease.
By obtaining their score, patients are educated on their carotenoid concentration, which also provides accurate insight to the body’s antioxidant and oxidative stress levels. Again, scores are based on long-term habits and will not change in a matter of hours or days. Testing with the BioPhotonic Scanner is recommended every 6-8 weeks to determine if enough nutrients and antioxidants are being consumed on a daily basis.
Numerous studies have begun to show the general food quality in America has significantly declined over the past few decades. We are not able to receive the vital minerals and nutrients required for the body’s health from pre-packaged, processed, or preservative-laden foods. For many, supplementation has become a daily part of life to replace nutrient deficiencies, however if the body is not able to properly absorb the nutrients, consuming them can be wasteful.
Treasure Coast Primary Care offers supplements in-office with a money back guarantee to increase one’s carotenoid activity. We invite you to come test your current levels and discover the nutrient-density of your body. It’s never too late to begin the path to greater health! You do not need to be a patient of the practice and the cost is only $20. Call 772-678-7043 to schedule an appointment.
