At our lyme disease treatment center, ALCAT Test is a blood test used for identifying immune reactions to various foods, food additives, environmental chemicals, medicinal herbs, moulds, antibiotics and other anti-inflammatory agents. It measures the patient’s response to each of the substances tested and classifies the response as reactive, borderline or non-reactive. A customised diet plan or substances to avoid can be recommended based on the findings. This improves the immune system balance.
Oligo Scan testing is used at Kaya to detect trace elements and toxic metals. If the patient suffers from metal toxicity, chelating techniques, supplements, lifestyle changes and dietary changes can be recommended to the patients.
Nutriceuticals and herbal medicine may also be prescribed to the patients depending on their needs. Due to the western diet and lifestyle, many people are deficient in crucial nutrients that are needed by the body for proper functions. Nutriceuticals work in conjunction with a balanced diet to support the body to heal by providing extra support in areas where deficiencies may be. Herbal medicine and botanical extracts are also used to support the body’s biochemical pathways.
Clinical detoxification is also a significant part of our treatment protocol. Therapies such as colon hydrotherapy and coffee enemas are used to cleanse the gut and get rid of any toxins. Juicing regimens are also used to enhance your body’s detoxification process. Our cold pressed juices will be made especially for you using carefully selected ingredients that do not trigger an immune response in your body. These juices provide a refreshing boost of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals and offer maximum benefits, keeping nutrients and enzymes intact.
At Kaya, a huge emphasis is given to consuming a diet containing fresh and local foods that have curative and preventive benefits. Our ingredients are purely organic with no added pesticides. All food at Kaya Sri Lanka is gluten, sugar and dairy free. The meals have been designed by our naturopaths, nutritionists and experienced chefs to help support and improve overall health.

Our treatment protocols also include the use of homeopathy and traditional Chinese medicine practices such as acupuncture to balance the vital energy (Qi) and to address issues such as depression, anxiety and insomnia which may act as triggers for autoimmune diseases.
Stress is also a key regulator of autoimmune disease and at Kaya, we look deeply into mind-body balance. Our patients have access to psychotherapist sessions to talk about stressful incidents either during the past or present that have significant effects on mental health.
