How can tests help you?
There are now many well established laboratory tests that can help you find out the cause of various health problems you may be experiencing. For example, are your hormones out of balance, do you have a high bone turnover or candida, or could you have an allergy that may be causing your problems? All these symptoms and conditions, and many more, can be detected scientifically by taking a simple and in most cases, non invasive test, appropriate to your condition.
Once you know what the problem is, only then, can you be sure that you are receiving the right treatment for your condition or at least know what it is that you need treatment for.
You can also discover what nutritional deficiencies you may have and which vitamins and minerals you need and should be taking.
Modern life is incredibly busy, and most of us have little time to consider our diets carefully. Even when we do eat well, our food is likely to be deficient in the vitamins and minerals we need to keep our bodies healthy and well-balanced. Your health also depends on how well you are able to absorb and digest the nutrients you eat. Problems such as lack of energy, insomnia, headaches, depression, moods wings, anxiety, and many more, can be traced directly to deficiencies of specific vitamins and minerals.
