When it comes to micronutrient deficiency, studies of the American diet reveal sub-optimal intake levels of much-needed micronutrients that may prevent degenerative disease. Studies further show that the American diet is inundated with environmental carcinogens, toxins in the food supply, toxins in our water like antidepressant and birth control pills, overly processed foods, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, and other overwhelmingly damaging substances that we don’t even know about.

Telomeres are segments of DNA at the end of each chromosome that serve as a protective cap to your genetic material. Every time our cells replicate and divide it causes our telomeres to shorten, and shorter telomeres mean a shorter life span for our cells. How fast or slow cells divide has to do with a person’s lifestyle and pre-genetic dispositions. Fortunately, today we can test, evaluate and determine telomere length through DNA Telomere testing.
More than 50% of people are affected by genetic mutations in the methylation pathway. Methylation plays an essential role in many chronic diseases. By understanding your genetics, you can prevent and address these conditions with the right nutrition and pharmaceutical supplementation guided by our doctor. You only have to test for this once to see if you have one or the two mutations C677T and/or A1289C

Hair Elements analysis provides information regarding recent and ongoing exposure to potentially toxic metals, especially methyl-mercury and arsenic, and time-averaged status of specific nutrient elements. Scalp hair is easy to sample, and because it grows an average of one to two cm per month, it contains a “temporal record” of element metabolism and exposure to toxic elements. Toxic elements may be 200 to 300 times more highly concentrated in hair than in blood or urine. Therefore, hair is the tissue of choice for detection of recent exposure to elements such as arsenic, aluminum, cadmium, lead, antimony and mercury.
The CDC acknowledges the value of hair mercury levels as a maternal and infant marker for exposure to neuro-toxic methyl-mercury from fish.
Nutrient elements including magnesium, chromium, zinc, copper and selenium are obligatory co-factors for hundreds of important enzymes and also are essential for the normal functions of vitamins. The levels of these elements in hair are correlated with levels in organs and other tissues.
After your heavy metals testing, metals can be detoxed in a variety of ways. Some include chelation through an IV using EDTA which is available at both of our Miami locations.
Our immune system is like a double-edged sword. It protects us against bacteria, viruses, parasites and other harmful invaders. Unfortunately, exposure to common foods can trigger chronic activation of the immune system. This creates a cascade of inflammation or as we call in the medical field “inflam-aging” that can lead to a variety of health problems. Symptoms can show up hours or days after consuming a particular food. This makes it impossible to connect the dots and tell which food is causing your health issue. At the Medical Health Institute, we can help you identify the foods causing you to feel sluggish, groggy, your weight goals impossible to achieve. We do this with our food sensitivity test – The Alcat Test.
