Your son' body is made up of complex cells, tissues, organs and body systems that all work together to facilitate all the necessary physiological functions that it needs to perform on a daily basis. These functions strive to keep his body in a state of balance or homeostasis.
This test analyses 46 items, including the organs and organ systems, hormones and specialised nutrients important in your daughter's growing and developing bodies.

We now know that every part of the body does not function in isolation, but rather are constantly communicating with each other through chemical compounds, nutrients, hormones and neurotransmitters (messengers). So understanding the health of the body involves viewing its function holistically rather than as separate entities.
THINGS THAT IMPACT HOMEOSTASIS (INNER BALANCE)
Some factors impacting on homeostasis include the following:
Poor nutrition or malabsorption
Stress and anxiety, especially through teenage years
Environmental toxin exposure
Dis-eases and conditions
An imbalance in one organ or body system affects the function of several other body systems. The affected organ or body system may slow down in function (known as hypofunction) or show an abnormal increase in function (known as hyperfunction). In both cases, the dysfunction creates a stress on the body which can impact on your health.
Let's use stress as an example.
On a physical level;
Anxiety -> high cortisol -> hormonal imbalance -> sleep issues, mood issues, anger, behavioural issues etc.
Anxiety -> inflammation -> sore tummy, headaches and migraines, joint pain etc.
On an emotional level;
Chronic Stress -> adrenal fatigue -> low energy, lack of vitality, low mood, relationship issues, self care and self image issues etc.
