Are you getting the nutrients you need?
Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress our immune system function, which can contribute to a variety of degenerative process such as arthritis, cancer, heart disease and diabetes (just to name a few). You may be deficient and not even know it!
University research shows that 50% of people taking multivitamins are actually nutritionally deficient, despite supplementation.
I see this in my office daily! For example, a patient taking Vitamin C for months tests deficient in Vitamin C which can be due to an inability to absorb the vitamin due to a leaky gut and/or use ineffective low quality supplement. I also test for a leaky gut before vitamin supplementation.
I use only organic foods as our supplementation source first and certified organic, gluten, dairy, additive and gmo free high quality whole food supplements second. A synthetic supplement will only be advised as a last resort as we work to make sure you once tested, your deficiencies will be fixed once and for all.
Micronutrient Testing in Our Office
I now proudly test intracellular vitamin, mineral and antioxidant and amino/fatty acid status within your white blood cells which tells us how well nutrients are utilized at the cellular level in your body. This is a more meaningful measure of your nutrient status than all other nutritional testing since we do test the standard blood serum like other blood test.
Even if you eat a well balanced diet, exercise and take a daily supplement, your intracellular vitamin, mineral and antioxidant and amino/fatty acid status with your cells may not be functioning properly. There is an overwhelming evidence that reveals that such deficiencies associate with inflammation and chronic diseases, therefore affecting your physical and mental health, and ultimately, quality of life.
What Conditions Can Be Affected By My Micronutrient Status?
- Inability to Lose Weight
- Thyroid Imbalances
- Hormonal Imbalances
- Leaky Gut
- Stress Intolerance
- Sleep Issues
- Poor Behavior
Schedule Your One Hour Micro-nutrient Testing
I invite you to take some time to meet with me in my office or video style where we can discuss the problems you are experiencing. Whether you are struggling to get out of bed each morning, suffering from muscle and joint pain or feeling like you are a hamster running frantically on a wheel, we will dive into your health issues and discover what is going on.
In this one hour consultation we will discuss your interest in discovering any vitamin or mineral deficiencies you may be experiencing. Many deficiencies can create underlying health problems such as fatigue, depression, muscle and joint pain, inability to focus, thyroid imbalances, migraines and more. I also offer upon lab testing a nutrition management plan tailored specifically according to the lab results and deficiencies found. Together, we will also explore further testing and solutions to get your health back.
