Micronutrient Testing Profile

The Micronutrient Testing Profile is one of our initial “go-to” or “Gold Standard” functional medicine tests. Since “patterns” are revealed, in addition to specific nutrient deficiencies,  the practitioner can better diagnose a problem (find the root cause).

You can get reimbursed through your insurance company, when you submit our superbill. That’s right! The cost of our services is cheaper than what meets the eye, so don’t let the cost stop you!

Description

 Micronutrient Testing Profile

Vitamin and mineral deficiencies may be responsible for many chronic health conditions.  Vitamins have diverse biochemical functions.  Some, such as vitamin D, have hormone-like functions as regulators of mineral metabolism, or regulators of cell and tissue growth and differentiation (such as some forms of vitamin A).  Others function as antioxidants (such as vitamin E and vitamin C).  The largest number of vitamins, the B complex vitamins, function as precursor for enzyme co-factors, that help enzymes work as catalysts in metabolism.  Minerals are essential nutrients which function as co-factors in most biochemical reactions.  A deficiency in any one or more can cause disease and even upset hormonal balance.  Conventional medicine has generally ignored assessing the micronutrient status of patients, and with our S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) and contaminated and nutritionally-depleted food supply, we are a malnourished nation and we can no longer ignore our nutritional state and how it affects our health.

The Micronutrient Testing Profile is one of our initial “go-to” or “Gold Standard” functional medicine test.  The results from this test can really focus in on specific health issues.  Since “patterns” are revealed, in addition to  specific nutrient deficiencies,  the practitioner can better diagnose a problem (find the root cause).  When the specific problem is discovered, this enables the most optimal treatment plan.  Many of your symptoms can be solved by simply understanding if you lack even just one single nutrient.

There are multiple reasons for nutrient deficiencies that could be the cause of weight loss resistance, fatigue, headaches, elevated blood sugars, behavioral issues, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep disturbances, anxiety & more. Determining what these are and the patterns that surface are the basics of what you need to bring you back to balance.

Why Take Medications to Treat Symptoms that can Be Resolved with the Micronutrient Testing Profile?

Prescription Medications are often the cause of micronutrient deficiencies.  Prescription medications are often the cause of weight gain.

Could the Metformin you are taking for your diabetes be causing a low folate level, which then could be the cause of your retinopathy or nephropathy? Could providing chromium supplementation for a low chromium level help you reduce the number of diabetes medications you take?

Let’s get to the root cause and stop using band-aids!
