Wellness and Healthy Ageing

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle and Improve Your Wellbeing

 Staying Healthy In a Toxic World

Many people who are tired, over-worked and sometimes sick know they should be eating the right foods, exercising regularly and taking nutritional supplements. It’s often easy to get confused with all the different information that’s available.

Many people are not sure what dietary advice is best for them, or they find it hard to exercise, and are unsure of which supplements are best for them. It can be hard to achieve wellness and healthy ageing if you are not sure where to start.


Why Wellness is for You

Wellness and Healthy Ageing Programs offer many health benefits, including:

  1. Weight Loss and Weight Maintenance
  2. Improved Energy
  3. Healthy Skin
  4. Good Digestion
  5. Cardiovascular Health
  6. Blood Sugar Control
  7. Improved Mood
  8. Improved Wellbeing
  9. Staying Healthy and Active For As Long As Possible

How Wellness works

Wellness is achieved by following three basic steps:

  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Nutritional supplementation

The recommendations for each of these foundations have been specifically developed in line with scientific research and represent cutting edge health recommendations.

How can I achieve optimal health and well-being?

By having a Personal Assessment and also completing the “Food and Mood Diary” it is possible to assess which foods are contributing to your health and wellness. In other words which foods are providing the fuel for your body and therefore, increasing your energy levels.

How do I achieve Vitality, Longevity and Healthy Ageing?

As practitioners we have received extensive training in maximizing healthy ageing and improving vitality, which helps you, the client, achieve your goals. We use a scientifically validated test known as Biological Impedance Analysis (BIA), which assists us to design a program specifically for your needs. Nutritional recommendations, exercise and dietary guidance, together with a Weight Management Program (if required) will be provided, giving the body the building blocks for maximum health and energy.

What is Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA)?

BIA is a science that was originally developed for monitoring patients after surgery in a hospital setting. The BIA leads are connected to the client’s hand/wrist and foot/ankle and pass a low voltage electrical current through the body. This is safe and painless, and provides insight into aspects of your health. It provides information concerning how much fat and muscle are in the body. It also helps to monitor cellular health and energy levels.

People who may benefit from the vitality and healthy ageing program include those who want to:

  • Lose Weight (see details below for “Shake It” – Professional Weight Management Program)
  • Increase muscle tone and fitness
  • Improve energy levels
  • Age healthily
  • Effectively detoxify your body

What will I receive?

Your practitioner will assess your health, perform a quick BIA Test and then design a strategy to improve key areas. It is also recommended that your results are monitored over time, so that you can see how your health is improving. Your health is your greatest asset – discuss what you can do to optimise this with your practitioner today.

During the Consultation the practitioner may suggest certain additional Wholefood Concentrates (duplicating nature), if it is felt that the individual’s body is deficient in certain areas. Protein, Carbohydrates, Fibre, Friendly Bacteria and the full complement of Antioxidants, Vitamins, Minerals and Phytonutrients are discussed to find out which of the above may be required as additional support to help achieve optimal health and vitality. 

Professional Weight Management Program – “Shake It”

52% of women, 67% of men and 25% of children in Australia are overweight or obese.

Obesity is associated with a range of chronic diseases and disabilities. It is therefore, advantageous to address Weight Management before it manifests in our body as sickness.

Healthy Living …….

Our research over the past years has enabled us to define just what the body’s requirements are. However, everyone is an individual and a Nutritional Program is established on a personal basis and will also reflect what is financially comfortable for the client as well.

Why Natural Medicine?

Why purchase Natural Medicines from your Healthcare Practitioner?

Your Healthcare Practitioner’s job is to have you feeling better as quickly as possible and to prevent health problems from reoccurring.

If you want to achieve a new state of wellbeing, thus maximising the quantity and quality of your life, you and your Practitioner must not only treat the symptoms, but also the underlying cause of your disease or condition. That’s why many of the programs that they prescribe may involve dietary and lifestyle changes and the use of Natural Medicines.



Why Metagenics Products are so Highly Regarded

By prescribing the Metagenics range of Natural Medicines your Practitioner is recommending the highest quality, effective products available. Sold only through Healthcare Professionals, the Metagenics range is formulated to meet the exacting standards necessary to treat acute and chronic health disorders. That’s why Metagenics is the number one provider of Natural Medicines in Australia and New Zealand.

Innovation and Research

Metagenics are continually making innovations into existing products and treatments, and researching new products. For example, Metagenics was the first company in Australia to offer therapeutic strength acidophilus featuring the NCFM strain of Lactobacillus Acidophilus, one of the most highly researched and scientifically validated strains in the world. Metagenics is also one of the only companies to have the Zinc Tally taste test, an easy test to check your zinc levels, and high concentration magnesium drinks for muscle spasm and fibromyalgia. These are but a few of the more than 200 products that Metagenics produces.

Metagenics funds scientific research studies at several universities throughout the world and employs more than 20 Doctors, Naturopaths and Research Scientists. The Metagenics team is continually searching for newer and better ways to improve peoples’ health.


Highest Quality Raw Materials

The effectiveness of a Natural Medicine is directly proportional to the quality and strength of its raw materials. Metagenics uses only the purest ingredients and conducts assays to confirm the raw materials purity, quality and efficacy.

Superior Manufacturing Processes

The Australian Metagenics head office consists of a $24 million purpose built office, manufacturing and testing facility located in Brisbane. This state-of-the-art investment is a TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) approved site, which allows the future development and growth of Metagenics within the industry. The manufacturing processes used by Metagenics are some of the best in the world. Avoiding the use of excess heat, moisture and compaction, which can reduce the biological activity of many nutrients and herbs, Metagenics uses only natural non-reactive vegetable gums and cellulose. Also, Metagenics do not use the common reactive binders, fillers and synthetic additives which can cause adverse reactions and side effects.

Storage of raw materials and finished product is also of vital importance, as many Natural Medicines are damaged or destroyed by temperatures above 25°C. That’s why all Metagenics’ production and warehouse facilities are either air-conditioned or refrigerated. This ensures that the products you receive are the best.

The Practitioners’ Choice

If you’ve made the commitment to better health and paid your Practitioner for his or her advice then you want to see results. That’s why your Practitioner recommends Metagenics products, for their quality, safety and efficacy. Your health and his or her practice depend on it.

Comprehensive Programs

Through qualified Practitioners Metagenics also offer comprehensive programs incorporating quality Natural Medicines supplements, dietary and lifestyle advice to improve your health.
