Nutrition Testing Test or Guess?

 

 Test or Guess?

We offer a Specialized lab test from Genova Diagnostics that delivers precise insights about the way your nutrition and your environment impact your body.  Science has come A LONG WAY and we are so excited about offering this test to YOU!  This test gives us insight and personalized intervention to help YOU get your health back!

As an informed patient, you understand that nutrition is important.  You know that the foods you eat affect your health.  Conversely, the things you do not consume, but perhaps need, may also have a tremendous impact on your body and expression of health. 

That’s why many people take vitamins and supplements to feel better and prevent disease.  While this practice can be beneficial, many variables exist.  It is important to understand which supplements are right for YOUR body, YOUR lifestyle and YOUR circumstances, thus ensuring your unique needs are being met without wasting money on items that could be unnecessary and even harmful.

Nutritional Imbalances can affect your body in many ways. 

Following are some of the key factors to consider. 

AMINO ACIDS:

Amino Acids are integral to healthy body chemistry.  They serve as the body’s basic building blocks and are responsible for the production of the bone and muscles.  Balance is critical for proper nerve function, metabolism, detoxification and digestion.  When certain amino acids are too high or low, they can cause fatigue, increased cardiovascular risk, and impair mood and cognitive function.  Once identified, imbalances can be corrected, helping to prevent many chronic illnesses before they can cause severe and lasting damage. 

FATTY ACIDS:

 You Are What You Eat

This is true when it comes to FAT!  Fats make up the lining of each of our 100 trillion cells!

Fatty Acids are essential to the construction of all cell membranes.  Too little or too much fat can cause health problems.  Reduced levels of certain fats can result in depression, hyperactivity, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, as well as early senility.  In addition, pregnant and lactating mothers should have their fatty acids tested to ensure their children receive the fats needed for proper brain and nerve development.  Measurement is the ONLY means to determine your individual needs. Dr. Oz is talking about the OMEGA 3 index too!  What is yours?  It needs to be between 8-10 optimally!

DIETARY MINERALS:

HELPFUL or HARMFUL?

Minerals in our body serve two functions: one being that they are the building blocks, second being that they are regulators of our body’s processes.  Many of these minerals are derived from the diet, and sometimes minerals are added to the diet as supplements.  Some minerals can even be toxic.  Magnesium, copper and manganese are beneficial.  If proper amounts are not obtained, problems such as joint pain, weight problems, depressed libido, depression or anxiety can occur.  On the other hand, exposure to mercury, lead, arsenic or other heavy metal can be harmful causing FATIGUE, EMOTIONAL DISTURBANCES, EVEN RENAL FAILURE.  Laboratory testing can provide valuable information about your health.

ANTIOXIDANTS:

Antioxidants are protectors molecules that reduce free radical damage or oxidative stress.  Free radicals are naturally occurring components in our body that can cause severe injury to cells.  Low levels of antioxidants lessen your protection from these harmful compounds.  Antioxidants are essential for the body’s ability to protect against free radicals and for healthy function of the neurological, endocrine, and immune systems.  Oxidative stress is linked to premature aging, heart disease, neurological diseases and chronic fatigue syndrome.  Lab tests can help us determine if you need more antioxidant protection and EXACTLY how much. 

NUTRITION affects many aspects of your health. Your genes are turned ON or OFF depending on your nutritional status.  Does your body have what it needs to run smoothly and be able to express health?  Or is it just chuggin’ along; barely getting by?
