Dr. Naiden also uses the scientific 'Tanita' body composition machine to do state-of-the-art measurements of your fat mass, basal metabolic rate, and your body water content, both intracellular and extracellular evaluation.
Included in her weight loss program is a weekly Exercise Circuit that consists of an infrared sauna, a Biomat table that consists of amethyst crystals to help detoxify the body, and a magnetic resonance body vibrator (10 minutes on this machine can be equal to a hour of exercise).
