“The 9 out of 10 people who would benefit from an annual physical from their doctor would benefit from a Preventive Nutrition Check-Up as well."

Preventive Nutrition Check Up:
Did you know:
a) Routine blood tests cannot detect most vitamin deficiencies or excesses, and will not show indications of health issues unless you have a severe deficiency/excess.
b) Uncorrected vitamin and mineral deficiencies may lead to chronic disease, cancer, fatigue, and can directly cause symptoms such as migraines, bloating, brain fogginess, and sleep issues (to name a few).
c) The vitamin and supplement industry is not FDA regulated. This has led to false claims on products’ contents and benefits, as well as harmful substances like lead and arsenic being used as fillers.
Preventive Nutrition Check-Up, Defined
A Nutrition Preventive Check-Up provides a thorough review of your laboratory results, anthropometrics, lifestyle analysis, and an analysis of your diet to assess for deficiencies, excesses, and risks for diseases. Thereafter, as part of your annual Nutrition Preventive Check-Up you are provided with personalized guidance to optimize your food intake for a healthier lifestyle and year ahead.
Many people take vitamin and mineral supplements to help ensure they are nutrient balanced. However, research has shown that science cannot create supplements to replace all the intricate nutrients and benefits found in whole foods. The benefits of nutrients for optimal health and chronic disease prevention are primarily found in the natural, wholesome sources.
