Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) Testing


Its that time of year when we have about a month of bad decisions leading to a new found motivation.  This year when realizing that you may have had one more cookie than you should have and begin formulating a plan of attack for the new year consider Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) testing.  There is a great deal of research that has gone into BIA testing over the last few decades and the topic of this post is not to bore but to help set new goals in motion.

It is always easier to complete a task when you have directions.  I know that I have put together enough IKEA products that without directions my fireplace would be full.  Having direction toward health goals makes accomplishment much easier.  Instead of just cutting calories and starving wouldn’t it be helpful to know how many calories your body is actually going to burn in a day?  How about if you new what your body fat percent was so that instead of looking at a scale and being disappointed you could look at a report and know that even though your scale hasn’t changed you have.  We frequently see healthy body change begin without a scale change.  Did you know you can loose fat and not loose weight and that may be good for you?  This report also gives you markers for health, Phase Angle is another measurement that we take. Phase angle is your health report card summed up in a single number.  Tracking your phase angle allows us to know that you are making healthy choices that get you to your goal.  Another important measurement is water in your body. Water is such an important element in our lives, small changes in hydration status can leave us with fatigue, headache, poor detoxification ability, poor sleep and more.  BIA testing gives us your hydration status in the cells and in your body allowing us to get an approximation of some nutritional deficiencies, inflammation and even toxicity.
