What Is Health Optimizing?

The Health Optimizing Concept

Health Optimizing is stimulating the human organism’s intrinsic self-regulating mechanisms to optimize health. A combination of breakthrough technologies is used to map out and deal with the primary and secondary factors on physical, biochemical, energetic, emotional, and lifestyle-related levels.

The Health Optimizing clinic concept is built upon the unique, proprietary, and well-tested Thomas Aksnes
H.E.A.L.T.H. philosophy:

H – Hippocrates’ health philosophy is based on finding out what is overloading the self-regulating mechanisms. Hippocrates’ teachings state that ‘Illnesses do not come upon us out of the blue. They are developed from small daily sins against nature. When enough sins have accumulated, illness will suddenly appear’.

E – Educating the client about a healthy lifestyle and the necessary lifestyle changes to give capacity for autoregulation. The educating focus is primarily based on the specific factors, according to the assessments, that will make the most difference.

A – Assessment of what is not functioning right: an all-encompassing assessment of the function of the cells, organs, and regulation systems using a combination of state-of-the-art medical assessment technologies.

L – Locating the underlying and trigger causations, using a combination of state-of-the-art technology devices and occasional biochemical tests.

T Targeting and solving causative factors and specific problems using the most effective combination of treatments as well as utilising state-of-the-art technology devices.

H – Homeostasis through stimulating the body’s own self-regulating mechanisms. Stop the mal-adaptation process that makes the body ignore problems by perceiving them as the norm.

What Makes Health Optimizing Unique?

Health Optimizing utilises more than 31 technologies, each providing many pieces of a health-status jigsaw-puzzle, to assist in mapping your individual concerns.

The most innovative aspect of our proprietary methodology is the way we use advance technologies to provide a comprehensive assessment of your health and put these pieces together to achieve an overall picture.

By identifying and addressing the causative factors of ill-health including lifestyle coaching and utilizing specific high-tech treatments to specifically stimulate the intrinsic self-regulating mechanisms, we enable the client’s own physiology to solve most health challenges quickly and effectively.

Our Clinicians

Dr Daniel Ho (Dr Dan)

Dr Dan is a family physician with 17 years of experience in the medical profession. He has always been learning and researching ways to help his clients achieve optimal health. Since he puts his patients’ welfare first, nothing makes him happier than to see his patients achieve their health goals and thriving again.

For the last 7 years, Dr Dan has been practicing functional medicine. He utilizes both conventional and complementary medicine where needed to assist his clients in achieving optimal health.

Dr Dan experienced health challenges himself, making him empathetic and able to relate to his clients. After many years of long hours and stress working in his former practice, he was burnt out, overweight, and constantly fatigued. Despite all his efforts, his clients would only temporarily get better. Then, in the long run, they ended up relapsing or requiring more medication to combat complications.

He believed that there was a better way. By re-examining all the confusing and conflicting advice, Dr Dan was able to create a simple, evidence-based, and common-sense approach to restoring his clients’ health.

As a result, Dr Dan personally lost 35kg over 18 months. He also overcame his limiting beliefs and fears to take on activities like skydiving, scuba diving, and circumnavigated the world.
