Sports nutritionist Rеbесса Scritchfield noted in “Wаѕhingtоn Running Rероrt” in 2009 that аdеԛuаtе lеvеlѕ оf the minеrаl iron, whiсh саrriеѕ оxуgеn thrоughоut the body, соntributе tо ѕuffiсiеnt energy lеvеlѕ.

The Core 4 To Wellness Lifestyle Nutrient Program can help you sustain energy without the yo-yo effect of poor food choices.

Supplementation

Because of today’s food sources and most 21st century lifestyles, supplements have become a key component of the Core 4 To Wellness Lifestyle Nutrient Program. In our current agricultural resources and food options, it is nearly impossible to obtain all the necessary nutrients from food alone. Supplements provide the missing link between what is necessary for optimal health and what is missing from our food supply. Supplementation is an important part of a healing and wellness. Our nutraceutical grade vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, probiotics, enzymes and other high quality supplements provide you with the support you need for optimizing your nutritional intake and body performance.

Advanced Core 4 To Wellness Lifestyle Nutrient Program

Micronutrient Testing

Even with taking the choicest foods, best vitamins, minerals and other supplements, what you are consuming may not be what your particular body systems are absorbing. Sometimes we need to go deeper into the nutritional needs of the body and identify which supplements your body truly needs. The Advanced Core 4 To Wellness Lifestyle Nutrient Program can utilize micronutrient testing to evaluate how nutrients are performing within your body’s white blood cells. This advanced method of evaluating supplement performance, micronutrient testing can reveal which vitamins, minerals, immune factors, amino acids, antioxidants, essential fatty acids are deficient and how to restore optimum nutrient levels within the cells.

Food Allergy and Sensitivity Testing

Everyone reacts differently to foods they eat. Some foods are beneficial, but others may be causing inflammation, tissue damage and toxicity. In fact, 95% of the people who get tested for food sensitivities (and lesser for food allergies) show that one or more regularly eaten foods cause a toxic or inflammatory reaction. The importance of identifying food allergies, sensitivities and also food intolerances, is that it can make an immense difference in your health. The key is that most of these reactions work at a cellular level, and may or may not cause noticeable symptoms right away. And when they do cause symptoms, there’s a strong possibility people never make the connection that what they’re eating is actually cause of their symptoms. Symptoms can be far removed from the gut and the reaction can be so disassociated from the root cause that it’s often misdiagnosed or overlooked.

There are numerous reactions from foods hidden in people’s diets causing their underlining health conditions. The list of associated food reactions is long, but not limited to headaches, skin conditions, and bloating, acid reflux, diarrhea, constipation, joint pain, IBS, weight gain, menstrual problems, insomnia, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and more.

Identifying food allergy, sensitivities and intolerances can be an important step in your quest for restoring and maintaining a healthy active lifestyle. For additional information on this topic click here:
