Many people who take vitamins and supplements may discover that these regimens don’t necessarily solve their nutrient deficiency issues.
For many, lifestyle and diet changes are also needed for their bodies to properly absorb the nutrients they need.
Before you begin a selenium or Vitamin B12 regimen to address nutrient deficiency, why not learn more about what’s happening with your body?
At South Carolina’s Health Edge Group in North Charleston, we offer SpectraCell testing that analyzes nutrient panels to determine what the best course of action is for you moving forward.
WHAT CAN NUTRIENT DEFICIENCY LEAD TO?
Most people today live busy lives with hectic schedules and turn more and more to processed foods. But these foods contain little nutrients.
Adults who eat the proper amount of food may still be eating the wrong foods as far as nutrients are concerned. Poor diets can lead to deficiencies in:
- Vitamin A.
- Vitamin C.
- Vitamins B1 and B3.
Not getting enough of these vitamins and minerals can cause serious health issues, including:
- A lowered immune system.
- Poor growth in children.
- Skin and muscle disorders.
- Osteoporosis and bone disorders.
- Fatigue and lethargy.
- Depression-related symptoms.
- Body weakness.
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
- Unwanted weight gain or weight loss.
- Various types of headaches, including migraines.
SpectraCell testing allows the Health Edge Group team to better diagnose patients and develop plans to return them to health.
Some tests measure just base levels of nutrients in your blood, which leaves doctors with less information to work with.
SpectraCell testing is customized based on the patient’s age and gender. This gives us better information to use in creating a nutrient plan to have you feeling better and more vital.
At Health Edge Group, we’ll review your medical history, lifestyle, diet and exercise habits to develop the right nutrient and supplement plan for you.
The Health Edge Group program also focuses on absorption, which is key to recommending the right level of nutrients for you.
For example, those who suffer from chronic illnesses, or who use medications to slow iron absorption, may be suffering from anemia. Some nutrients rely on other vitamins and minerals to be properly absorbed into your system.
DO I NEED A NUTRITIONAL ASSESSMENT?
Every patient can benefit from tests to determine if their bodies are receiving the proper amount of nutrients. But those who suffer from chronic illnesses and pain have the most to gain from SpectraCell testing.
Making sure your organs, bones and muscles are healthy is key.
People on special diets because of food allergies, heart disease or other health issues should have an annual SpectraCell test. This helps us to keep patients from suffering permanent damage that can occur following years of deficiency issues.
If you are a vegetarian or vegan, we can help you make better food choices and ensure you take the proper supplements you need to retain good overall health.
After your SpectraCell test is done, you will have the information you need to make the right nutritional choices moving forward.
Our patients report they feel more vital and energized after they added the right nutrients to their lives.
