Chronic disease is on the rise. 1 out of 8 people are affected by diabetes. Over 50 percent of deaths are caused from heart disease and cancer. 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with some form of cancer. In 2007, US drug sales reached $280 billion, with 95 percent of them treating only symptoms. Yet most diseases are preventable and nutritionally related. Over the last 50 years, nutrient values in our foods have plummeted. Over-planting, soil depletion and widespread use of chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides combined with modern manufacturing methods destroy or weaken many of the nutrients in our foods.
There are a plethora of books that address various health concerns and finding what works for you can be quite a lengthy research project. Many profess the importance of supplementation and the recommendations are endless. A one-size-fits-all approach to supplements does not take into account that we are all ‘biochemically’ different. Both over and under supplementing can upset your path to good health. Alternatively, customized nutritional supplements are formulated to match your unique needs.
Six months ago I had a thermography reading and biofeedback performed on my breasts. They both indicated breast disease. I began using supplements customized for my unique body shortly after that screening. At my six-month follow-up the breasts were normal and stable.
The test for customized supplements consists of an easy-to-take in home urine collection. The test results, along with your age and gender determine the nutritional formula specific for your unique body. Headed by a research team of medical doctors, Ph.D.’s, biochemists, and clinical nutritionists, the lab produces tests results and supplements that are doctor-grade quality (USP). The customized formula includes pharmaceutical-grade nutrients including essential vitamins, antioxidants, chelated minerals, phytonutrients, anti-aging ingredients and amino acids.
Every human body is either moving toward health or away from it. Scientific tests and custom supplements can help each person move in the right direction.
