Nutrition Testing Doctor | Royal Oak, MI

Up to 90% of Americans are not consuming enough of the essential nutrients required for healthy functioning of all aspects of their bodies. These nutrient deficiencies can compound over time and have lasting negative effects on your health. Understanding the connection between food and health is vital for every individual who desires optimal functioning of their body.

The importance of food stems from the fact that there are an astounding 37 billion chemical reactions occurring in your body every second. For these reactions to happen, your body needs proper nourishment in the form of vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately, eating enough calories does not necessarily ensure that the food we eat has nutrient density or the amounts of each nutrient required for health to occur. Despite calorie abundance, most Americans are overfed but undernourished- meaning they eat too much of many foods with too little nutritional value to provide what the body needs for function. Shockingly, deficiencies in essential nutrients like omega-3 fats, vitamin D, magnesium, and vitamin C are common in the population.

At our practice, we offer a comprehensive micronutrient test that identifies your potential insufficiencies, imbalances or deficiencies of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, organic acids, and antioxidants. These tests provide valuable insights into your overall health, including mitochondrial function, B vitamin status, detoxification capabilities, neurotransmitters, and gut flora. The results of these tests will help us create personalized nutritional and lifestyle recommendations for you to ensure that you are taking a proactive approach to disease prevention, including nutrients that protect against cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and neurodegenerative decline.
