No general screening test is more efficient, effective and affordable than a comprehensive blood chemistry panel. It allows the healthcare provider to establish a baseline of biomarkers to track the patient’s health and nutritional needs. Getting a blood test is essential to understanding your current health and your nutritional needs.
What is Blood Nutrition?
Blood Nutrition™ is an innovative, science-guided look at nutritional strengths and weaknesses through an individual’s blood test. This new scientific approach can offer a clear plan for your optimum health. As a result, a new generation of healthcare professionals is emerging with the tools and keys that can reveal the more subtle imbalances and assist in correcting them.
Blood Nutrition™ is a comprehensive approach to health. To address the true cause of symptoms, one should look for their origin from a science-generated perspective by considering:
→ Physiological distress or disease conditions
→ Nutritional distress or imbalances
→ Mental/emotional distress
Any of these factors may be the source or a contributing factor for the symptoms of imbalance. The cornerstone of an effective health strategy is a nutritional and lifestyle plan that is based on your biochemistry. Success here is dependent on the establishment of an accurate nutritional profile guided by scientific approaches such as a comprehensive blood test.
Blood Nutrition and Science
This advanced scientific approach identifies nutritionally significant information through the careful analysis of the various blood values. Certain indicators can reveal electrolyte, mineral and other nutritional imbalances. Once addressed, one can optimize the metabolic processes and help maintain the healthy performance of the body. A balanced nutritional state is essential for achieving and maintaining health.
Nutritional analysis of your Blood Test may indicate the need for:
→ Key nutrients such as vitamin A, B6, B12, D
→ Fluid and electrolyte balance
→ Minerals such as magnesium, calcium and iron
→ Tissue hydration
→ Nutritional support of key organs
→ Nutritional support of metabolic pathways
→ The need for lifestyle changes
If you have nutritional imbalances, you may be experiencing the following:
→ Mental/emotional symptoms including mood swings and anxiety
→ Structural/musculoskeletal symptoms such as pain or stiffness
→ Digestive issues such as bloating, indigestion and elimination problems
→ Optical symptoms such as difficulty in night vision or blurry vision
→ Symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, food cravings
→ Cardiovascular health issues
→ Dry skin, brittle nails, hair dryness or loss
Are you suffering from the effects of nutritional deficiencies or imbalances? Nutrients such as amino acids, enzymes, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and electrolytes are the building blocks of the body. They provide energy, support metabolism and are needed for many biochemical reactions to sustain health. Key nutrients may become deficient for various reasons. These may include:
→ Disease processes, which may block metabolism
→ Poor dietary habits
→ Physical, mental and emotional stress
One of the most scientific ways to identify nutritional imbalances is to have your blood test evaluated by a nutritionally trained doctor or healthcare practitioner who is experienced in Blood Nutrition™ assessment. A comprehensive blood test is affordable and results are normally received within a few days.
When key nutrients become deficient, many metabolic processes are affected. The body may initially try to compensate for such imbalances. However, if they are prolonged, they may contribute to hormonal issues, metabolic disorders, increase in toxic load, oxidative stress, organ weaknesses and many other health issues. Many symptoms such as tiredness, fatigue and irritability may be effectively addressed with proper nutritional considerations.
A blood test is one of the most efficient tests you can get to determine the quality of your overall health. Once you have received your test results, working with a specialist who is experienced in Blood Nutrition™ will enable you to achieve the optimum health that is essential to a long life full of vitality.
