This approach uses a scientific method to analyze samples of blood, urine and saliva to reveal the nature of the unique biological terrain for each individual. The method is called the biological terrain analysis or BTA and has revolutionized naturopathic medicine practice.

The pH or acid-alkaline balance, the redox potential or relative amount of free radicals, and the resistance or mineral content defines biological terrain in the human. The three body fluids we measure are the blood, the saliva and the urine. Thus we take three readings of three body fluids for a total of nine measurements. This constitutes a biological terrain analysis. This test is done in a doctor’s office using a sophisticated laboratory device linked to a computer. The results are printed and analyzed within minutes of the test. We always perform the test on fasting subjects in the morning to get reliable and consistent results.
