Nutrient & Food Allergy Testing

Micronutrient testing offered at Balanced Bodies provides the most comprehensive nutritional analysis available by measuring deficiencies at the extra & intracellular level. It is an assessment of how well the body utilizes over 30 vitamins, minerals, amino/fatty acids, antioxidants,and metabolites. These micronutrients enable the body to produce enzymes,hormones,and other substances essential for proper growth, development, and good health. Our testing provides both a short-term and long-term nutrient status report for the previous 4-6 months

 

Micronutrient testing allows for nutritional replacement to be personalized to each individual's specific needs. At Balanced Bodies,we have several options for nutrient replacement including IV therapy, vitamin booster injections, and oral administration.

Nutrient status is a vital foundation of health. Each micronutrient plays an indispensable role in promoting optimal cell function. Virtually all metabolic and developmental processes that take place in the body require micronutrients. Research studies suggests that vitamin, mineral,and antioxidant deficiencies can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis,cancer, cardiovascular disease,diabetes,hormone deficiencies and numerous other health conditions. Evaluating micronutrient status can therefore be the first step in identifying metabolic inadequacies while shedding light on the possible underlying causes of complex chronic conditions.
