Vitamin & Mineral Deficiency Testing
Why take a handful of vitamins without knowing what your body needs? When your immune system is under stress from recurrent allergies and/or infections, your body’s stores of vitamins, minerals and nutrients are depleted. These must be replenished. We offer the Spectracell Analysis of your blood to determine what vitamins your body is deficient in and lacks. The information from the test will give us a targeted approach to determine what missing vitamins need to be restored in your system.
Nutrient statue is a vital foundation of health. Each micronutrient plays an indispensable role in promoting optimal cell function. When some cells do not function at their best, the foundation of our health is compromised, setting the stage for the development of disease. Identifying and correcting nutritional deficiencies is an important step in the long-term maintenance of optimal health. The vitamins, minerals and nutrients that we recommend have been extensively researched and developed to ensure maximum potency and effectiveness.
Vitamin deficiencies aren't just a reflection of diet, even people with healthy habits can have deficiencies. Since we are all biochemically unique, nutrient deficiencies will vary from patient to patient, and do not necessarily correlate directly with nutrient intake, even among those with similar health conditions. Many factors beyond diet determine whether nutrient function is adequate. Biochemical individuality, genetic predisposition, absorption and metabolism, age, disease, conditions and medications all influence individual micronutrient requirements. Even a healthy-looking person can have micronutrient deficiencies that may only be revealed through testing. Conversely, if your eating program contains processed foods, then you can be certain that these foods are depleted in vitamin and mineral content. We encourage all of our guests take some form of vitamin and mineral supplementation in addition to the deficient vitamins.
The Spectracell Micronutrient test measures the levels of selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients. With the information from the test, we recommend an array of vitamin and mineral supplements, each designed specifically for your needs. At Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center, we are not interested in just meeting the U.S. government’s recommended daily allowances (RDA) for vitamins and minerals, which are the levels recommended to prevent deficiency diseases. Rather, we want to ensure that you receive sufficient supplementation to promote optimal health and wellness.
