WHAT WE DO

The Metabolic Health Clinic is a specialist Allied Health Care clinic located in the eastern suburbs in Doncaster East, Melbourne employing Dietitians, Nutritionists, Sleep Apnoea Technicians, a consulting Sleep and Respiratory Physician, a Specialised Therapeutic Masseuse, including an Anti-ageing skin care specialist. We look broadly at health and wellness and have both services and products to offer.

Dietetics

Including the diagnoses and treatment of insulin resistance, glucose impairment, Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Gestational Diabetes. We work with you to address, manage and create behaviours at all stages of diabetes or abnormal glucose metabolism disorders, to optimise health outcomes. 

If disorders of glucose metabolism are identified early, dietary and lifestyle modification can avoid early diabetes. 

Medical Nutrition Therapy ( MNT) prescribed by a dietitian is the first intervention management strategy for Type II diabetes. Appropriate MNT and education greatly reduces long term diabetes related complications. A solid understanding of what blood glucose results means and the appropriate action required is essential to managing diabetes. 

CDM - Chronic Disease Management

If you have a chronic health condition such as Diabetes, you may be eligible to be covered under the Medicare Chronic Disease Management Program for up to 5 visits a year to see a dietitian. This means that medicare covers the bulk of the cost of a visit, so you only pay a small gap fee for consultations. Phone us on 03 9841 6759 to make an appointment.

Clinical and Sports Nutrition, specialising in weight loss

We have programs that can be tailored to your individual needs and have had excellent success with this for over 20 years.  We take a broad approach when looking at your health and there are many factors that can contribute to weight management issues. To best explain how our fat loss programs work, we offer a no obligation, free initial consultation where you can hear about what we do, and decide if it's the right thing for you.  

Lutronic Healite II - LED Low Level Laser Light Phototherapy

Healite II™ LED Light Phototherapy is a scientifically proven, therapeutic and non-invasive use of incident light to photomodulate cellular function. This therapy improves the apperance of skin pigmentation and wrinkles, quickens wound healing and scarring, treats acne, stimulates hair growth, improves circulation and relieves pain and stiffness in joints.

Healite II™ can be used as a standalone therapy or as an adjunctive therapy to a wide range of treatments, including aesthetic laser treatments, skin needling, deep chemical peels and pre and post plastic surgery. With two light settings, the wavelengths of light can penetrate the layers of the skin to help to improve the its barrier function to retain key elements that help heal and generate new collagen after its production has slowed due to age or damage.

Treatments are non invasive, pain free and relaxing , and best results are seen when a series of treatments are undertaken, within a 48-72 hour time period.

Sleep Apnoea Testing and Snoring

Do you snore, or does your partner snore?

Snoring is a sound caused by the vibration of the soft tissues of the throat. If the path of airflow is too narrow, or closes over, a snorer needs to make efforts to allow for air circulation, and that is why the sound is produced. An apnoea is when the walls of the throat come together and block off the upper airway. Breathing then stops for a period of time until the brain registers the lack of breathing or a drop in oxygen levels and sends a small wake up message. The sleeper then rouses, opening the upper airway, typically snorts and gasps and then goes back to sleep. In most cases, snoring gets worse with time, age, and weight gain and is a serious health issue not only affecting the snorer but a sleeping partner also.

We conduct home based testing for sleep apnoea through the Metabolic Health Clinic, which is done in your normal sleeping environment at home to get the best results.  There is normally an out of pocket cost of $220.00 which is not rebated by health funds, however the Metabolic Health Clinic will BULK BILL this testing at no extra charge to you.

OUR WHOLEFOOD SUPERFOODS AND PRODUCTS

Cryptomonadales® is highly heat endurable compared to other chlorophyta. It survives at temperatures over 38ºc, therefore it is a thermophilic strain of algae suitable for cultivating in Taiwan. Its soft cell wall also makes it the most digestible, preserving its nutrition at over 95% absorption making it the ideal, perfect health superfood. Cryptomonadales® is the strain of W 87-10 (CRYPTO) which makes it distinct from all other strains of algae and it carries the highest level of chlorophyll of all other plants, 20 times more than wheatgrass, barley grass and alfalfa and 10 times more than spirulina. Therefore, Crypto yields proportionally a much higher amount of carbohydrates from photosynthesis than any other plants do.

Cryptomonadales® absorbs nutrition in the water to grow and when the cells become mature each of them will divide into four daughter cells in just 18-20 hours, each cell identical carrying the same amount of chlorophyll as the mother cell carries. This growth rate and cell division that Cryptomonadales® carries cannot be found in any other organism. The reason Crypto can propagate such a unique process is that it has the Crypto extract in the chlorophyll which is beneficially good for human health.

Cryptomonadales® is also the only algae and one of only three foods in the world that contain all three peroxisome profilerator activator receptors (PPARs) agonists isoforms (alpha, delta, gamma), which are regarded as the most important biochemical components for body homeostasis and now considered to be of the most important bio medical discovery in the 21st century.  

What is Cryptmonadales?

Cryptomonadales® (Chlorella sorokiniana) or (Crypto) is the latest and most important species of unicellular freshwater algae only discovered in the 1990’s by Dr. Shun-Te Wang, founder of International Cryptomonadales Biotechnology Co., Ltd (ICBC) Taiwan.

Founding History

Prof. Dr Shung-Te Wang, the founder of International Cryptomonadales Biotechnology Co., Ltd (ICBC), Taiwan has spent more than 45 years of experience and research studying every species of algae on our planet before discovering the latest new strain of algae species W87-10 (Chlorella Sorokiniana), now known commercially throughout the world as Cryptomonadales®.

Prof. Wang has devoted his life to researching algae and has gone through numerous hardships and effort in order to nurture and grow the most purified and precious species of freshwater algae in the world, Cryptomonadales®. Since his discovery of this rare and unique species in 1995 he has also encouraged and invested heavily into the development of commercial quantities of Cryptomonadales®, together with an invesTMent of all profits back into medical research and the most sophisticated methods of manufacture under the direction of the most prestigious medical research institutions in Taiwan to obtain the first “Health Food” certification licensed to Cryptomonadales® by the Minister of Health, Taiwan, Biomedical Safety and Toxicity tests approved.

This license was issued in 2005 License No Health Food No. 0066, the first one amongst all species of algae.  

Research and Development

Prof. Dr. Shun-Te Wang, the founder of International Cryptomonadales® Biotechnology Co., Ltd (ICBC), Taiwan who has more than 30 years experience in researching algae first discovered a new species W87-10 (Chlorella Sorokiniana) now known as Cryptomonadales®. Since Prof. Wang’s discovery of this rare and unique species in 1995, and from 1998 onwards important biomedical research has been conducted and published revealing how Cryptomonadales® algae food can improve human health.

Prof. Ih-Jen Su, MD, PHD, Distinguished Investigator, Vice Chancellor National, Cheng Kung University Medical School, Taiwan, Head of National Research Institute, Taiwan, published a paper in 1998 on the induction of cell differentiation and apotheosis by Cryptomonadales® extract in human haematopoietic stem cells and epithelial cancer cell lines. NCKU Research and Development Foundation’s scientific papers published by Prof. Ih-Jen Su in 1999 confirmed the effects of Cryptomonadales® on human health research on toxicity and blood lipid regulation and a further paper in 2001 confirmed the potential effects of Cryptomonadales® and the food extract on Hyperlipidaemia and Cancer Chemoprevention.

In 2010 Prof. Su published a paper showing the efficacy of Cryptomonadales Algae Extract Containing PPAR Agonists in the Growth Inhibition of Hepatocellular Carcinoma in SCID mice. You can view this paper here:

The latest scientific paper published in October 2012 in Evidence Based Complimentary & Alternative Medicine, Article ID 735396 by Nien-Tzu Chou, Biomedical Technology and Device Research Laboratories, Industrial Technology Research Institute, Hsinchu, Taiwan confirms that Chlorella Sorokiniana (CS) W-87 Crypto species extracts could activate naïve T cells and stimulate T cells proliferation and IFN gamma secretion.
