Nearly 2,000 IBS patients surveyed in 2007 by the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders reported that diagnosis of their IBS was typically made 6.6 years after the symptoms began.

This would indicate that IBS
is a common yet puzzling
medical diagnosis.

Testing and Diagnostics


Our commitment to provide the highest level of care to our patients combines the most innovative technology and the best on-going patient education, allowing us to work towards optimal health, achieve successful results and a global reputation of excellence.

Electrodermal Screening (EDS)

Electrodermal Screening is used to screen all the systems, organs and functions of the body. It is also used to determine the presence of sensitivities to food, pollens, mold, environmental pollutants, chemicals, etc., without directly exposing the patient to the potential allergen.  READ MORE

Heart Rate Variability Analysis (HRV)

The Heart Rate Variability analysis (HRV) test depicts a visual representation of heart rhythm called rhythmography. Rhythmography can graph the relationship between the two components of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). This is your own unique response, giving the doctors at CCIBS vital information about your heart’s electrical activity and how your ANS is functioning to control that activity at rest and under stress.  READ MORE

ALCAT Test

The ALCAT test is a core technology blood test that measures the body’s cellular response to challenges from a wide array of substances including various foods, additives, colouring and chemicals. The individual’s cellular reactivity after exposure of the blood to the various test agents, versus the person’s own baseline control, tells us which substances may be causing a sensitivity-related response in the body.  READ MORE

Darkfield Microscopy

Darkfield Microscopy is simple, quick and accurate. For example, with a simple drop of blood drawn painlessly from your finger, the test is able to provide a composite of over 25 aspects. Darkfield microscopy now allows us to observe multiple vitamin and mineral deficiencies, toxicity, and tendencies toward allergic reaction, excess fat circulation, liver weakness and conditions that favour arteriosclerosis.   READ MORE
