Infra-red saunas

Sourced from Germany, the Viavi:be infra-red sauna helps support detoxification. The benefit of Far Infra-red Rays, as they are called, is that they are the longest wavelength which penetrates the fat cells causing vasodilation, where the fat cell vibrates to expel toxins.

The infra-red sauna can also stimulate your metabolism to aid weight loss, assist with pain relief, increased circulation and skin purification, and is also just a great way to relax after a work-out – a kind of well-earned treat after a job well done.

Lifestyle medicine tests and consultations

All delivered remotely by leading clinical physiologists based in Harley Street, each service combines the relevant testing, along with full interpretation of the results and a personal plan to improve issues where necessary.

Stress resilience and sleep recovery analysis

The test captures the functioning of the autonomic nervous system through measuring the variability of your heart rate over a three day period. Measuring the autonomic nervous system gives insight into how your body responds to the stresses in your environment. The analysis is able to quantify times spent ‘stressed’ and times, including sleep, spent in recovery. The data allows a personalised timeline of stress and recovery matched against a diary to provide highly personalised lifestyle coaching. The test is ideal for those who want to better manage stress and improve resilience, enhance recovery and feel more energised, and help generally ensure the optimum benefits of sleep.

Microbiome gut bacterial diversity test

The gut microbiome is a community of tens of trillions of bacteria living in your colon. It plays an important role in the whole of your body, supporting proper digestion, protecting you against unwanted, pathogenic bacteria, strengthening your immune system, influencing your brain and mood. The test, based on a stool sample, is for those wishing to gain insight from their microbiome on optimising diet. The test will show you whether your microbiome is receiving enough nutrients and fibre from your diet to work effectively, whether you have sufficient bacteria supporting you and whether the correct balance between the different families of bacteria are present. Anyone suffering from gut symptoms unexplained by traditional medical testing will also benefit from optimising their biome, but the benefits extend well beyond the gut!

Food response test

Over 45% of the population react adversely to foods that they eat, which whilst not life threatening, can have a massive impact on quality of life. Food response testing measures specific foods which trigger an unwanted immune response. This immune response is not an allergic reaction but instead a slower, more subtle reaction driven by food-specific IgG antibodies. Results offer a starting point for an elimination diet to improve a range of possible symptoms and health conditions. The test, based on a finger prick blood sample, is for those who want further insights into a range of symptoms, unexplained by traditional medical investigations, including gut problems, bloating, headaches, migraines, low mood, energy loss, fatigue, weight gain and skin problems.

Nutritional supplements

For many years now at Viavi:be we have recognised that there is a nutrition gap in the diets of most people. This gap describes the difference between the levels of nutrients the average person, eating a reasonable Western diet is obtaining from food, and those nutrient levels identified by research as being needed for optimal health in the population. The Viavi:be nutrients have been carefully selected to meet most of the requirements identified by Viavi through many years of measuring and analysing clinical data from the Health Evaluations at its Harley Street centre. Importantly, the supplements are of an unusually high quality and produced in a “bio-effective” form to ensure that a higher proportion of the nutritional element is absorbed than is the case with traditional supplements. ‘Bio-effective form’ means providing nutrients in our supplements that are in the same form as the nutrients occur in food. Nutrients in these forms follow ‘food metabolic pathways’ and will be optimally utilised by the body. Such nutrients differ from the ‘isolate’ petrochemical vitamins and minerals that are provided in the vast majority of supplements sold.

Available supplements to purchase at the Viavi:be centre or on-line are Zinc, Omega 3, Multivitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin D, and Magnesium.
