Bio Energy Testing
Bio Energy Testing is the most innovative health and anti-aging tool ever developed. It combines the technology from Korr and the computer algorithms from Dr. Shallenberger to accurately measure how well your body produces energy. Every cell in your body contains thousands of energy-producing structures called mitochondria. The mitochondria convert oxygen into the energy molecule ATP by burning fat and sugar.
When your mitochondria cannot optimally produce energy, your body cannot function. Decreased mitochondrial function is the root cause of almost every disease, especially obesity, and even the very process of aging itself.
Bio-Energy Testing not only determines how well your body can
produce energy, it provides solutions to correct the problem.
What is aging?
There are two types of aging. There is chronological aging, and there is biological aging. We all have a chronological age. We celebrate that age every single year! We cannot control it, and it goes up by one every year. However, that age is just a number. All of us have a biological age as well. That number might go up by more than one every year. Fortunately, we have the power to control and even reverse our biological age. The speed of which we age is solely dependent on energy production. Energy production has been the center of “anti-aging” for years. Unfortunately, they viewed decreased energy as the result of again when it is actually the complete opposite. Decreased energy is the cause of aging!
What causes decreased energy production?
Decreased fat metabolism and decreased mitochondrial efficiency.
Mitochondria are the parts of the cell in which oxygen is converted to energy.
The processes of biological aging and degenerative disease can be slowed and even reversed by altering these two things to increase energy production. Bio-Energy Testing can determine the reasons why you cannot produce energy as well and let us know what is required to increase your energy production to optimal levels.
What is Bio-Energy Testing?
Bio-Energy Testing involves the use of a pulmonary gas analyzer to measure real time breath by breath oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production. A series of measurements are taken at rest and during a progressively more difficult exercise program.
The Bio-Energy Testing computer program then calculates:
Your resting mitochondrial efficiency
Your resting fat metabolism
Bio-Energy Testing® can also determine:
Your optimum carbohydrate intake.
Your optimum caloric intake.
Your lung function.
Your heart function.
Your overall strength.
Your optimum exercise levels.
How does Bio-Energy Testing work?
• The Bio-Energy Testing analyzer measures oxygen
consumption and carbon dioxide production.
• Oxygen consumption directly determines mitochondrial efficiency.
• Carbon dioxide production determines fat metabolism.
• Optimum carbohydrate intake is determined by the ratio of oxygen consumption to carbon dioxide production.
• Overall strength is determined by the amount of work you are capable of per unit of energy produced.
• The Bio-Energy Testing analyzer sorts and analyses an enormous amount of data and calculates your energy production dynamics under both basal and exercise conditions.
• Bio-Energy Testing algorithms present the results of these calculations in a way that have immediate clinical relevance.
Who should be tested?
Anyone who is physically able to pedal a bike. The information gathered from Bio-Energy Testing can be used to help everyone older patients who wish to reverse the biologic age to physically fit patients who wish to optimize their athletic performance. Everyone in between needs to know this information to help lose weight and keep it off, increase muscle mass, and optimize energy production to age gracefully.
