Bio-Energy Testing

Bio-Energy Testing is one of the most innovative health and anti-aging assessments that we offer at Phydos Clinic. It utilizes technology from Korr combined with specialized computer software that precisely measures the capacity of your body to extract energy from oxygen. This testing can be performed on adults and teenagers.

Bio-Energy Testing is an essential tool for:

  • Enhancing Sports Training & Athletic Performance
  • Optimizing Biological Age
  • Anti-Aging Programs
  • Optimizing Blood Sugar Control
  • Enhancing Overall Health & Well-Being

Every cell nucleus in the body contains special energy-producing structures called mitochondria. It is the mitochondria that use oxygen to burn fat and sugar creating chemical energy the body requires to carry on living. Bio-Energy Testing measures how efficiently the mitochondria are functioning.

Proper mitochondrial functioning is critical to good health, and poor mitochondrial functioning is a root cause for nearly every disease, obesity, and even the process of aging itself. When the mitochondria are not working optimally, the body cannot function as it should.

Bio-Energy testing determines how well the body can produce energy. It also provides solutions to correct problems with energy production and optimize cellular functioning.

Bio-Energy Testing involves the use of a pulmonary gas analyzer connected to a computer that is able to measure how much oxygen the body uses and how much carbon dioxide the body is producing at a given time. A series of measurements are taken at rest and during a progressively more difficult exercise program. The Bio-Energy Testing computer program then calculates:

  1. Your resting mitochondrial efficiency
  2. Your resting fat metabolism
  3. Your maximal mitochondrial efficiency
  4. Your maximal fat metabolism

Bio-Energy Testing can also determine:

  1. Your optimum carbohydrate intake
  2. Your optimum caloric intake
  3. Your lung function
  4. Your heart function
  5. Your overall strength
  6. Your optimum exercise levels

Bio-Energy Testing works by measuring 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 can have immediate clinical relevance.

The information provided by Bio-Energy Testing can be used to help everyone. This method was first introduced to the healthcare profession in 2004. At the Phydos Clinic, we take pride in being the only Bio-Energy Testing center in the state of Virginia.
