Nutrition, which includes both the foods you eat and the vitamins you take, are an integral factor in you feeling well. We list supplements that are good for particular stress or thyroid needs as these factors may contribute to weight gain. For daily supplements, we recommend Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Calcium/Magnesium, Essential Fatty Acids, Co Q 10, and antioxidants.
We carry a line of pharmaceutical grade vitamins. We are very impressed with their purity, effective and cost. They are available in the office or online, but we support your use of high quality name brand over the counter vitamins as well.
We are happy to offer vitamin testing in our office. Spectracell Laboratories, based in Texas, patented FIA analysis measures levels of selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells. Testing can reveal nutrient deficiencies often missed by traditional blood testing. Such deficiencies could impair your health by contributing to the development or progression of chronic diseases.
Your blood is collected in the morning prior to noon, but no fasting required, and we will receive a report on 31 nutrients. Covered by most PPO insurance plans, and require an $105 copay payable to Spectracell Laboratories on the date of collection.
