What is it?
A non-invasive health screening tailored to you.
Who is it for?
Health MOTs are available for all. It is especially recommended for those who are concerned about their health and lifestyle.
How does it work?
Our Health Practitioner carries out a range of tests including non-invasive electrical bio-impedence to analyse your current health and then make positive recommendations. We offer three different Health MOT options, as well as the individual tests separately. Please click here for more information on what is involved in each option, as well as more information on prices.
See below a list of measures the Health MOT explores:
Height and Weight
These measurements may be something that you come across every day, but they help us determine certain risk factors about your health. If you’re carrying too much weight for your height this could be putting an increased strain on your heart.
Our heart works at a particular pressure to pump blood around our body, so if this is too high, it may be putting strain on our arterial walls and increases risk of heart attack and stroke.
Body Fat %
This is a more specific way to look at our body composition as it determines exactly how much body fat we have. Having a healthy body fat keeps our cardiovascular risk low! Make sure you’we drunk plenty of water, as this can affect your results.
Hydration is key in our everyday lives. Water has many functions in our bodies, it helps regulate temperature, prevents headaches and tiredness, helps our skin, and helps our muscles and joints. We must remain hydrated throughout the day to see these benefits – how much water do you really drink?
Waist to Hip Ratio
Where we store our body fat can influence our cardiovascular risk. If we’re carrying excess weight around our middle it could be around our internal organs (visceral fat) which is less healthy.
Our body ideally has a functioning pancreas, therefore our blood sugars should be staying within healthy ranges both when we’ve eaten and when we haven’t. If they’re outside these ranges, it may mean you need to be more active, or you might need to make some dietary changes, else it may increase your risk of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes isn’t only about how much sugar we eat, but our whole lifestyle.
Our body naturally produces cholesterol which is a type of fat in the blood, because it’s essential for us. We need both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol, but what we consume will contribute to this, so this is why we need to eat a healthy diet. A good balance of both types of cholesterol will reduce your risk of a stroke or heart attack.
“I had a Health MOT and was shocked with the result so much so that I have changed my lifestyle and what I eat and have lost nearly a stone in 3 weeks. My cholesterol is now back to normal, my blood pressure is now back to an acceptable level and have never felt better more energy and am also sleeping better and have a full night’s sleep. I would recommend to anyone to have the test as it could just save your life” – Mr A.W
