Home » Blog » Unlocking Your Health Potential: DEXA Scans & Insights from “You Are What You Eat”

In the tapestry of modern health and wellness, technology and dietary wisdom weave a narrative rich with potential for personal transformation. The Netflix documentary “You Are What You Eat” has ignited conversations around how our food choices directly impact our health. Yet, nestled within this discourse is a pivotal tool often overlooked: DEXA scans. These scans, while less discussed, play a crucial role in translating dietary and fitness efforts into actionable health insights.

The Power of Precision: How DEXA Scans Illuminate Your Health Journey

Imagine having a detailed map of your body’s composition and bone health at your fingertips. That’s the promise of DEXA (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) scans. Renowned for their precision, DEXA scans go beyond generic health assessments to offer a clear picture of where you stand and how your lifestyle choices affect your health. This precision becomes a beacon for those seeking to understand the impact of their diets, similar to the dietary revelations in “You Are What You Eat,” but with a focus on actionable health metrics.

DEXA scans stand at the crossroads of innovation and individual health, offering insights that can pivot a person’s health trajectory towards optimal wellness. Whether you’re an athlete scrutinizing your performance metrics, someone on a weight management journey seeking clarity, or a patient in recovery from an injury, DEXA scans provide the data needed to tailor your health strategy precisely to your body’s needs.

Beyond Bone Density: A Comprehensive Health Assessment

Traditionally hailed for their bone density assessments, DEXA scans offer much more, dissecting your body composition to reveal the percentages of fat, muscle, and bone mass. This trifecta of information is instrumental in crafting targeted health and fitness regimens. For athletes, it’s about optimizing performance and recovery. For those with health conditions or undergoing rehabilitation, it’s about monitoring progress with an accuracy unmatched by other tools. And for individuals passionate about longevity and wellness, it’s about peering into the body’s response to lifestyle changes, ensuring that every effort towards health is as informed as it can be.

Inspired Action: From Insight to Lifestyle Transformation

Drawing inspiration from the ethos of “You Are What You Eat,” DEXA scans embody the transition from insight to action in health management. They don’t just quantify the results of your dietary choices and physical activity; they illuminate the path forward. This technology enables a tailored approach to health, considering the unique composition and needs of each individual’s body. It’s about moving beyond one-size-fits-all health advice to a personalized health blueprint.

As someone who’s needed help with getting their weight loss journey back on track, I had this place recommended by a friend and I’m so glad I did. I worked with Harmun to conduct the scan, and I found the process (along with the results) to be a really fantastic experience! It feels like unlocking a fitness cheat code to have this knowledge, and I highly recommend it to anyone who’s serious about getting their health in order!!


Two years in a row coming to see Harmun and he is amazing to work with. Very knowledgeable and personable. I am going every year now – maybe twice!
