A key principle of Functional Medicine is identifying the root causes of imbalance in the body. Imbalance leads to symptoms, which may manifest for years before outright disease results. Ultimately, it comes down to what is actually happening inside the cells of the body, i.e. our metabolic function.
Nutritional balance is the key to health. You can’t build a house without a strong foundation – and nutrients are the foundation of a strong body. Nutritional balance not only plays a key role in optimal wellness, it also works in chronic disease prevention and in managing the aging process.
On July 27, 2016, Optimal Health Solutions by Nancy Raymond will host a discounted draw day for Spectracell Laboratories 33 test Micronutrient Deficiency panel at our offices in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing sheds light on nutritional deficiencies that often go undetected with routine testing. Nutrients fuel our metabolic pathways, and they are essential for proper function of every system of the body. SpectraCell’s Micronutrient Testing measures functional levels of 33 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids within your white blood cells.
This is Metabolic Nutrition at its best! Nutrient levels in these cells represent your unique nutrient status and is a window into your health status. Because these white blood cells (lymphocytes) have a 4-6 month lifespan, this testing gives us a look at your status over the last six months time.
If you’ve had the testing done at least 6 months ago, this is a great opportunity to remeasure and reassess where you are now. If you’ve never had the testing done, this is event offers a significant discount on the pricing and is a super opportunity to gather information to optimize your health!
I believe nearly everyone would benefit from this test as part of a full nutritional assessment, but in particular those suffering from stress, fatigue, depression/anxiety, use of prescription medications (which often depletes nutrients overtime), any medical condition, immune function issues, GI (digestive) issues, or for those who want to be proactive in their quest for a higher level of wellness would all be good candidates for this test.
This test gives us an amazing window into what may be going on with our patients, and really helps us to fine tune a customized health and wellness plan that supports individualized needs. You can’t know what your path should be if you don’t know where you are starting from!
Join us for this one day “special” pricing event ($125.00 with insurance, vs. the regular pricing of $190.00. NOTE: No Medicare or Medicaid submissions are allowed for this event). Draw time spaces are limited, and reservations are required by July 19th to schedule your blood draw time.
