    The Integrative HealthCheck

    The Integrative HealthCheck offers the most comprehensive integrative health check in Australia. It assesses over 21 different indicators of cardiovascular health, vitamin and mineral levels, hormones, immune function, heavy metals, liver and kidney health, cancer risk and more. You will be required to complete a diet and lifestyle questionnaire prior to attending your appointment. This helps our practitioners tailor the HealthCheck to your needs. The initial screening and follow-up appointments are conducted at NIIM. The medical imaging is performed at a nearby imaging facility in Hawthorn. You will need to arrive fasting at your first two appointments. Breakfast is provided at your initial appointment.
