We seek to understand our clients’ stories, beliefs, habits, and lifestyles
Welcome to Miskawaan Health Group Bangkok
A full-service functional medicine clinic located in the heart of Bangkok and home to the latest diagnostic tools, advanced medical procedures and experienced team. Our doctors create customised medical plans to meet you exact health goals including personalised pharmacy and integrative therapies to treat chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer (Miskawaan Integrative Cancer Center) and autoimmune. Our range of treatments and therapies are also available for anti-aging, improve immunity against infection and optimal health and wellbeing.
Diagnostic machine tests and laboratory tests provide us with objective insights into each client’s biochemistry and physiology so our doctors can get a complete comprehensive view of each client.
We focus on biochemical individuality, metabolic balance, ecological context, genetic predisposition, and lifestyle patterns, as well as other factors that have the potential to influence human physiology, and the push-pull dynamics of health and disease.
It is now known that inflammation is a driving mechanism of cardiovascular disease. Inflammation is common for heart disease and stroke patients and is thought to be a sign of plaque building up in the arteries. It’s important to test inflammation, understand what creates it and what it can do to your heart.
Gut microbiota is an assortment of microorganisms inhabiting the human gastrointestinal tract. The composition of this microbial community is host specific, evolving throughout an individual’s lifetime and susceptible to both lifestyle and dietary modifications. Recent renewed interest in the structure and function of this “organ” has illuminated its central position in health and disease. The microbiota is intimately involved in numerous aspects of normal host physiology, from nutritional status to behavior and stress response. Additionally, they can be a central or a contributing cause of many diseases.
Here you have an assessment of gastrointestinal function and the ecology of the GI tract, including intestinal wall integrity, small bowel bacterial overgrowth, yeast presence (candida), immune function, parasitic activity, and specific allergies or food intolerances.
At MHG, are concerned with micronurtrients and mineral analysis – predominantly of toxic and nutritional minerals. We check macro or trace minerals, antioxidant and vitamin analysis. Here, we are looking at the most important parts of the building blocks associated with the body.
Mitochondria are the powerhouse of our cells. Their job is to process oxygen and convert substances from the foods we eat into energy. Mitochondria produce 90% of the energy our body needs to function. The reason mitochondria are so important is because mitochondrial diseases affect so many different organs and tissues of the body.
Genetic testing involves reviewing your DNA, which is the information database that carries instructions for your body’s functions. Genetic testing can reveal mutations in your genes that may cause illness or disease. By identifying the issues in genetic health, our experienced doctors can move forward with natural treatments that work.
The importance of hormones to body is like that of a conductor to an orchestra. Hormones regulate actions and rhythms of every cell in the body. Their roles are crucial to maintain ideal body functioning at physiological and biochemical levels. Recommended tests include evaluations of sex and regulatory hormones, adrenals, thyroid, growth hormone among others.
EDIM screening – EDIM (Epitope Detection in Macrophages) EDIM Technology finds cancer before it forms universally.
TKTL1 and Apo10 represent fundamental biological mechanisms in tumor cells.
We leverage the work of our immune system. We know that our innate immune cells eat up degenerated tumor cells. EDIM technology collects innate immune cells (macrophages) and cuts them open to look for TKTL1 and Apo10 and discovers if they ate any early-stage tumor cells. With this approach, we can detect tumor cell activities even before a visible tumor is formed.
Metavectum Tumor-Therapy Test
Tumors develop a very individual profile which is different from person to person.
Consequently, the medical treatment of the tumor should be carried out individually as opposed to standard generalized chemotherapy guidelines that assume all patients are identical.
Materials in the Metavectum Tumor Test
- a biopsy of the primary tumor, and/or
- circulating tumor cells (CTC) from the blood of the patient which are the link between primary tumor and metastases.
- 80 gene expressions (RT-PCR) are determined in the transcriptome of the tumor cell. The data reveal results of a gene mutation analysis, protein levels, metabolism analysis and provide a detailed picture of the whole tumor metabolism.
The results obtained in the previous test systems assist the attending doctor both in his diagnosis and the choice of an optimal, individualized therapy that matches the client’s profile.

Coronary Artery CT Calcium (CAC) Scoring Scan
Plaque is made up of fats, cholesterol, calcium and other substances in the blood. It develops gradually over time, long before there are any signs or symptoms of disease. These deposits can restrict the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the muscles of the heart. Plaque also may burst, triggering a blood clot that can cause a heart attack or stroke.This severity can be presented as Agatston score or coronary artery calcium (CAC) score. The CAC score is an independent marker of risk for cardiac events, cardiac mortality, and all-cause mortality.

Advanced Glycation End (AGE) Reader
The measurement of Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs) provides an immediate cardiovascular risk prediction in 12 seconds. AGEs are substances formed primarily from high fat, high protein animal foods during the cooking process. AGEs play a pivotal role in the development of chronic age-related diseases such as diabetes, renal failure and cardiovascular disease.
The level of AGEs in long-lived tissues (not in blood!) serves as a memory of glycometabolic and oxidative stress and is a valuable predictor of cardiovascular complications. The AGE Reader has been validated as the gold standard for measuring AGEs. This showed skin autofluorescence is strongly correlated with AGEs.
AGE Reader applications include:Patient management: early detection of (diabetes) patients at risk of developing cardiovascular complications. Professional health assessment: identify individuals with an increased risk of diabetes and additionally the metabolic syndrome. Anti-aging and skin-care: identify people with increased levels of AGEs to improve skin care and reduce aging.
Oligoscan applications include:Instant mineral analysis. A way to detect deficiency or excess in minerals and potential toxic metal poisoning. A comprehensive and customized assessment aiming to optimize your patient’s healthcare approach (laboratory tests, optimal nutrition, targeted supplements, physical activity, etc.) offering effective monitoring.
It is based on the principle of specific absorption, transmission and or reflection of light by thea specific heavy metalchemical compounds over a certain wavelength range.
Minerals (macronutrients and micronutrients) have a key role in the proper functioning of the body. A daily intake of nutritional supplements is essential since the human body is unable to synthesize them itself.
Toxic metals cause DNA damage, disruption of hormone receptors, dysfunction of phyisiological proteins, and oxidative stress which. Oxidative stress is are mechanisms responsible for aging and many other diseases.
VICORDER® determines the velocity of the pulse wave between the carotid and femoral arteries (PWVcf).
PWVcf is highly associated to the presence and degree of atherosclerosis.
PWVcf documents changes in aortic elasticity better than any other readily available parameter.
PWVcf can be used as a direct indicator of end organ damage, found in a variety of diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, or chronic kidney disease.
PWVcf is called “probably the strongest independent predictor of cardio-vascular events” by the American Heart Association.
- The parasympathetic connection between heart and brain is one of the most important communication pathways in the human body and is essential for health and well-being.
- A healthy parasympathetic communication path is like a busy information highway with a lot of exchange of information between the brain and the organs.
- Unhealthy life style or diseases can damage the highway with the result that the exchange of information is heavily reduced.
- Any reduction of the parasympathetic information flow increases the risk of illness, impedes healing processes and reduces personal performance.
- The state of the neurovegetative regulation is recognizable by the change in heart rate, known as the heart rate variability (HRV).
- HRV scanner combines the standard tests of the neurovegetative function analysis (Deep Breathing Test, Short-term HRV, Supine/Standing HRV and 24 hours HRV measurement) and HRV biofeedback into one system.
Physical Metabolic Analyzer
The metabolic profile provides you with information on the burn index (RMI), the resting metabolic rate (RMR) based on fat/sugar calorie consumption, oxygen utilization, metabolic quality and the respiratory acid load (RSL).
