Your health determines your energy, your vitality, and how you live your life. It is too important to leave to guesswork. Your body has many indicators of nutritional deficiencies. Signs and symptoms are not always exactly what they appear to be. Proper identification of deficiencies is the first step. Finding the exact nutritional product to resolve that nutritional issue comes next.
• Fatigue A few of the many causes included a deficiency of iron, B12 or the B vitamin complex. A dietary imbalance can also cause fatigue.
Iron attracts oxygen to the cells. Without a sufficient supply of iron, there will be inadequate amounts of oxygen, resulting in fatigue. Your entire body must have oxygen to fuel your energy, just like oxygen fuels the fire in your fireplace. An iron deficiency can be evaluated using traditional blood work, or non-invasively by live cell analysis, muscle testing or an analysis of your finger nails.
Without proper amounts of B12, the digestive system cannot make the proper digestive enzymes to break down food, which results in fatigue. A lack of B12 can also contribute to digestive issues, like acid reflux, heartburn, and GERD. B12 is also critical in the formation of optimal red blood cells. Red blood cells that are too small cannot carry as much oxygen as your body needs, contributing to fatigue. The size and shape of the red blood cell can be seen under the microscope using traditional blood work, or non-invasively by live cell analysis, where you can personally see your blood.
Overeating sugars and carbohydrates over time can lead to a deficiency of the vitamin B complex. The entire vitamin B complex is needed to metabolize and break down all carbohydrates and sugars into fuel for your body. These vitamin stores can be depleted when more carbohydrates are consumed than protein. Taking a vitamin B supplement does not always change the desire to eat sugars, the main indicator of a vitamin B complex deficiency.
Sugar cravings can have many causes. They can occur when there is a hormone imbalance, a dietary imbalance between carbohydrates, proteins and fats, specific vitamin deficiencies, a fatty acid deficiency and/or dehydration. Locating the specific issue(s) will quickly resolve the sugar cravings and restore your energy. Live blood cell analysis, muscle testing, hair analysis or an analysis of your tongue can help determine a vitamin B complex deficiency.
Skipping meals, not drinking enough good water, eating an insufficient quantity of protein and good fats in your diet, and overeating carbohydrates can contribute to blood sugar instability and fatigue. A simple dietary review can often reveal easy dietary changes that can help restore energy.
• Difficulty Sleeping A few of the many causes include sleep issues include toxicity, mineral deficiencies, and hormonal imbalance.
Toxicity is one of the main causes of sleep issues. Heavy metals and chemicals act as stimulants to the body. You either cannot fall asleep or stay asleep due to the toxic burden. Your body is exposed daily to toxins in the air, food and water supply, in common household cleaners, and in personal care products. Both Hair Analysis and muscle testing can be used to identify the exact type of toxic burden, and the specific products to reduce it. An ionic detox footbath, or an infrared Bio Mat can also help to reduce your toxic burden.
Hormone imbalance also contributes to sleep issues. People of all ages are having sleeping difficulties due to the heavy use of hormones in the food supply. Naturally rebalancing the hormones can restore your body back to sleeping normally. Hair analysis, saliva testing or muscle testing are non-invasive tests that can determine which hormones need balancing.
Sleeping issues are also related to a mineral imbalance. Calcium is added to many food products, including orange juice. Magnesium is not added to these same products. In order for your body to use calcium, it needs magnesium. Magnesium is a muscle relaxant, helping reduce muscle tension and calming your body.
Trace minerals, like zinc and copper are also essential for calming your body so it can sleep. All minerals need to be in ratio to each other for them to work properly, much like a food recipe. Identifying your specific mineral deficiencies can be done non-invasively using muscle testing, finger nail analysis or hair analysis.
Your health is your most important asset. Make sure that your nutritional supplements are exactly what your body needs. Take the guesswork out of figuring out what your nutritional needs are by working with an alternative health care provider. Testing is a simple, effective, inexpensive and painless way to find out exactly what your body needs. Take good care of your body and it will take care of you for a lifetime.
