Nutritional Testing Q & A

What are the benefits of nutrition testing?

Sometimes, your body has trouble functioning at its best or healing due to nutrient deficiencies. While you may eat a generally healthy diet, food preferences, availability, and quality mean you don’t always get all the vitamins, minerals, macronutrients, and other compounds you need for optimal health.

When your body is missing certain nutrients, it’s unable to heal itself optimally and ill health persists.

How is nutrition testing performed?

A comprehensive physical exam and evaluation of your symptoms give clues as to potential nutrient deficiencies. The Turtle Healing Band Clinic team may also order a specific blood analysis to determine if you have concentrations of required nutrients in your body.

 Specific nerve testing that looks at your organs and their responses also helps determine where you may need nutritional support.

Who is a candidate for nutrition testing?

Anyone experiencing symptoms of a deficiency may benefit from nutrition testing. People who have chronic disease, including diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, or fibromyalgia, may also benefit.

Symptoms that suggest you’d benefit from nutritional testing include: 

  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Trouble breathing
  • Pale skin
  • Unusual food cravings
  • Hair loss
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Tingling or numbness in the extremities
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Brain fog and trouble with concentration

By identifying any nutritional deficiencies, the team at Turtle Healing Band Clinic can offer dietary and supplemental nutrition recommendations to alleviate your issues.

How are nutritional deficiencies treated?

The team at Turtle Healing Band Clinic may offer dietary recommendations to help you resolve mild deficiencies in certain nutrients. Oral supplements are also sometimes used.

 Intravenous nutrition therapy, however, is the most effective way to correct deficiencies and see a quick resolution in symptoms. IV therapy bypasses your digestive tract, where nutrients may not be thoroughly processed or absorbed. You get a quality dose of nutrients directly into your bloodstream so your cells can start using them for healing and to promote optimal bodily function.

If you’re just not feeling yourself or have a diagnosed chronic condition, nutritional testing can help identify how to optimize your healing. Call Turtle Healing Band Clinic or book online to schedule your evaluation today.
