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.
Micronutrient supplementation is an essential tool in the battle against the aging process. These test results can be prescribed in a precise balance by your Medical Health Institute physician or health care specialist to ensure the best possible results.
Our Micronutrient deficiency test provides the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available by measuring functional deficiencies at the CELLULAR level. For example, you can have a high B12 and Folate blood serum, but depending on how you methylate these nutrients, you could actually be deficient at a cellular level. So if your deficient at a cellular level is pretty much futile whatever you might be supplementing with. The good news, their are ways to treat & fix these pathway issues with the right quality of a supplementation.
The Micronutrient deficiency test is an assessment of how well the body utilizes 33 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids and antioxidants. In addition to metabolites that are essential for your mental and physical health. This test provides the basis of a personalized, functional approach in addressing a broad variety of clinical conditions. These include but are not limited to arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders, metabolic disorders and micronutrient deficiencies.
So, instead of taking what you heard or think is healthy for you, here is a test to identify the exact levels of these vital nutrients. In addition, If you are currently taking supplements, then here is an opportunity to see how well they are working inside your body and if they are actually being absorbed by your cells.
Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants enable the body to produce substances essential for proper growth, development and good health. You have come to know some of these substances as enzymes and hormones. In layman’s term they are the biochemical wheels of life! Deficiencies in these nutrients have been shown to suppress the function of the immune system which can contribute to a number of disease we categorize in the degenerative processes. Conditions such as arthritis, cancer, dementia, Alzheimer’s and other neuro-degenerative disorders to name a few. When testing patients in degenerative state, we are yet to see a patient who is not deficient in some vitamins, minerals, micronutrients and anti-oxidants.
Do you find yourself feeling stressed, groggy, tired, and maybe a little depressed?
Do you take prescription medications to alleviate symptoms of certain conditions. But then wonder why the condition still drags along or why they exist at all?
Do you want to boost your immune system now, to possibly prevent chronic disease later?
Do you want to boost your metabolic system now, to possibly make weight-loss merely effortless?
Many people lead healthy lifestyles yet they still have deficiencies… WHY?!?!
Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different than the requirements of another.
Although you may eat a balanced diet, if you do not absorb vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients properly, you can have deficiencies.
Health conditions such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, fatigue and multiple sclerosis, to name a few, can be affected, directly or indirectly, by micronutrient deficiencies.
Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol and sedentary habits all impact micronutrient demands.
Our micronutrient requirements at age 30 are quite different from our requirements at age 40, 50 and beyond. Absorption difficulties, especially of vitamin B12, quite commonly occur as we age.
Our Micronutrient deficiency test lab results include an overview page with all your deficiencies listed. It does so in numeric and graphic reports easily identifying deficiencies and supplement recommendations for those in-sufficiencies. The reports are easy to read and follow. Here is an actual example of what the results look like.
We made it simple and easy for you! At your convenience, give us a date and time and we’ll have one of our phlebotomists drive to your home or office to have your blood drawn. This test does not require any fasting as well. Once your blood is drawn, you will receive easy to read test results within 3 weeks. Once you have your results, one of our specialized trained health care specialists will walk you through your entire results. We will show what pharmaceutical grade supplements to take and how to efficiently optimize your Micronutrient levels.
In addition, with the same blood draw, a specialized “Telomere Biological Aging” and “Brain Omega Check” test can be included with your Micronutrient test. These additional test can identify your real bodies age from a biological point of view and the Omega 6 to 3 ratios intake in your brain. 2/3 of your brain is fat, so testing for these essential Omega ratios could take your cognitive function and neuro-degenerative prevention to the next level.
