At the Dr. Fuhrman Wellness Center, we offer a number of health screening services that provide you—and your doctors—with measureable insights into the current state of your health. This allows us to formulate a targeted nutritional treatment plan to safeguard your health, and reverse and prevent disease.
We offer the following health screenings:
A Health Screening Triad provides you with insights into your current health status and measurable results that can serve as a benchmark from which to track your progress. This information is far beyond what a body weight scale can give you. The screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, and there is no need to disrobe, other than momentarily removing your shoes and socks. You will receive your results at the end of the Health Screening Triad, as well as a copy of Dr. Fuhrman’s Nutritarian Handbook and other reading materials.
The Health Screening Triad consists of:
The Cardiovascular Screening provides an IMT (intima-media thickness) scan to evaluate cardiovascular health. This unique test quickly provides an accurate method for predicting the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Measuring your IMT is a useful way of screening for arterial disease using ultrasound technology, and is especially useful for monitoring changes. It is primarily recommended for those who are at a higher risk of having plaque on their arteries (people who are overweight or have diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol), but this test can be utilized by anyone. It is used for its ability to generally assess arterial health and plaque burden in your body. It is noninvasive, and causes no pain or discomfort. It is especially useful to monitor your IMT score every 1-2 years to determine if your condition is improving or worsening over time.
The Cardiovascular Screening is offered every other month, typically on the second Wednesday of that month, and an appointment must be scheduled in advance to receive the screening.
Please call the medical office at (908) 237-0200 to schedule your appointment.
These convenient home screening tests may be used to confirm adequate levels of essential nutrients in the blood or test other health parameters without doctor visits or blood draws.
Tests may be purchased from this website, self-administered in the comfort of your home, then mailed to the appropriate location for processing. Results will be sent to Dr. Fuhrman Medical Associates and then mailed to you.
