The standard American diet, full of refined carbohydrates, sugars and lacking in essential vitamins and antioxidants can leave you deficient in many key nutrients needed to prevent chronic disease and to run all body systems effectively. While a healthy balanced diet often provides a source of vitamins and minerals, taking dietary supplements on top of your healthy diet may prove beneficial in ensuring your body may be the nutrients it needs each day. In addition, supplementation can help decrease your risk of chronic disease and reduce your long term health care costs. This is as healthy for your wallet as it is your body.
Supplementation can help meet the higher nutritional needs of your more demanding lifestyle or medical condition. Stresses, medical complications, and energetic living can all create a greater need in your specific body for very specific minerals or vitamins. Supplementation can also help correct deficiencies in the very food you are eating. Chemicals used in farming, depleted soils, refinement, preservatives, and additives all create deep imbalances in our food supply itself. For example, USDA tests shows that in 1950, spinach on average contained 158 milligrams of iron per 100 grams. The average iron content of spinach today is 2.7 milligrams per 100 grams. Spinach just isn’t what it used to be. This is not an isolated case. Statistics like these run throughout almost every facet of our food supply. Through supplementing your diet, you can make great strides in correcting for these food supply deficiencies. Consider it your insurance policy, protecting your health and preventing disease.
The Balanced Well-Being Healthcare screening process will help us identify what your body requires beyond blanket statistical recommendations. We individualize your supplement regimen to your specific needs, and we identify the root cause of the deficiency in the first place. Whether it is poor diet, poor digestion and absorption, stress or a medical condition, we examine how these variables are interacting with your unique body, lifestyle, and environment, and create a supplemental regiment that works for you.
