Let us help you to achieve optimum health! Just getting into better shape next year is not enough to limit your risk of health problems.

 

- Did you know that even if you have a healthy diet and take a multi-vitamin that does not mean - your body is actually absorbing what you need?

 

- Did you know that as we age our ability to absorb certain nutrients decline? Have you ever wondered what positive effect the supplements you consume have on your body?

 

- Did you know that 50% of people taking supplements will still remain deficient in these nutrients?

 

There is a new test that measures the levels of select vitamin, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells (lymphocytes).  This new technology offered by SpectraCell Laboratories measures the intracellular function of essential micronutrients within live white blood cells, which reflects your levels over the last few months.

 

Current standard serum tests only reflect a person?s diet over a narrow window of time. Additionally these tests can be biased by many factors, especially by foods eaten during the few days preceding the test, which can mask the detection of long-term deficiencies.

 

With evidence documenting that micronutrient deficiencies contribute to all types of problems, including arthritis, cancer, heart disease and diabetes - YOU WANT TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE GIVING YOUR BODY WHAT IT NEEDS! By measuring the biochemical function of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, we give you a powerful tool in your health care or disease management program for achieving optimum health!

 

Who should have this test done? Ideally, everyone - especially since most insurance companies cover this test! It may be especially helpful for anyone with fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, heart disease, those on medications and anyone with a chronic illness.

 

Most PPO forms of insurance will cover this test with a nominal $75 co-pay, and Medicare patients pay $48 or less at the time of testing. Blood is drawn in the office and results are usually available within three weeks.

 

The results will be explained to you in detail, a treatment plan will be established, and you will be re-tested in four to six months to determine if your deficiencies have been corrected.
