    Relaxing & rejuvenating

    “We thoroughly benefitted from our 2 weeks at Amchara. My husbands blood sugar levels were monitored & proved to him that is possible to control type 2 diabetes with diet. We both lost 11 lbs each in two weeks.”

    Amchara’s overall mission is to empower you to total health and your personalised health plan can create the foundation for good long-term health, excellent longevity and very low risk of disease.

    We can support you to achieve your optimum health or ‘360 health’ by measuring your gut, hormone and genetic performance with a series of functional tests that help us to personalise your health in a detailed way.

    These functional tests can be for individuals with a health problem or alternatively for those who are seeking optimal health.

    We offer a complimentary 15-minute mini-consultation to explore if this is a positive option for you.
