Vitamin and Mineral Testing
Current universal health care testing is limited to measuring accurate levels of vitamins and minerals in the body. As well, standard testing does not measure if nutrients are properly functioning in the human body. The largest influence on nutrient demand is our lifestyle. Prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol, diet and age requirements all impact our absorption of vitamins and minerals. Health conditions such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, adrenal fatigue and obesity can directly impact nutrient deficiencies. In addition, micronutrient requirements vary from person to person, which is dependent on need and absorption.
Reasons For Testing: Blood vitamin and mineral testing takes lifestyle, age, chronic illness, absorption and biochemical individuality into consideration to confirm current nutrient assessment. By obtaining this information specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies can be detected. After testing, a course of treatment will be developed. Treatments can improve overall health and longevity.
