Ensure your body has sufficient levels of nutrients
If you can give your body the nutrients it needs then it will be better armed to fight the threat of illness.
Unfortunately many of us are nutrient deficient, even though our diets might seem to be ‘wholesome.’ A recent survey revealed that, these days, our fruit and veg contains less than 10% of the levels of nutrients that fruit and veg did in 1937.
This applies to organic as well. Organic produce may not have some of the poisonous pesticides but if the soil is deficient in nutrients then so will the crops be that are grown on it.
I nearly always find that clients are short of magnesium, iodine and selenium no matter how good their diet unless they have used supplements.
Assessing your nutritional status is an important part of any consultation. A long term lack of essential nutrients can be one the causes of disease.
Know your Homocysteine levels
One of the key processes in your body involves how your cell acquires fuel to function. This is known as glycation.
This along with other processes is depend on a process we call ‘methylation’ which itself is dependent on B2, B6, folate, B12, TMG and zinc.
One way of testing whether this process is working or not is to test for homocysteine levels and I always try and do this in the first session of working with someone.
If they are too high then this drives inflammation and the increased chance of an illness developing. You are more prone to a heart attack or stroke for example if your homocysteine is high.
I often find that homocysteine can be high even when your diet appears to be well balanced and healthy.
Its not always about the nutrients in your food however, it’s also about how well your body absorbs them and this is something I always try to look out for. B vitamins in particular can be lacking due to this problem.
Using the bioresonance machine I can test for the main vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to see what you might be short of. Once I have this information I can draw up a nutritional plan to reduce the risk of deficiencies.
