The Gold Standard Medical Test for assessment of stomach function. A non-invasive in-clinic procedure.

This medical test has been used worldwide for nearly 40 years and is backed by 150+ Clinical Studies. Health Optimising UK are one of very few UK clinics to offer The Heidelberg Test which is run by a registered nurse.

The Heidelberg Test is an alternative to endoscopy or gastroscopy which does not require the trauma or discomfort of sedation.

It involves swallowing a digital pH capsule that continuously provides measurements in real-time via radio signals to a computerised system. This provides accurate readings of the pH, fasting stomach acidity level (HCl), the production capacity of HCl, the timing of stomach emptying, the pyloric valve function, and more.

This is an essential test for everyone who has gastric reflux or digestive problems. It determines, against a reference range, these stomach acid imbalances which can all cause gastric disorder.

Hypochlorhydria – low stomach acid, Hyperchlorhydria – high stomach acid, Achlorhydria - absence of stomach acid.

These are some of the most common gut disorders in the UK. If you have been diagnosed with any of them and/or have persistent, troubling symptoms then we would recommend that you undertake a Heidelberg Test to provide your Clinician with gold standard information upon which to base a diagnosis and healing protocol.
