Are you getting the Nutrients that your body needs?
Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune system function, which can contribute to a variety of degenerative processes such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, etc. Low nutrient status will make it difficult to fight acute and chronic infections such as Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia along with opportunistic infections such Epstein Barr virus, Herpes Simplex, etc.
Studies show that even if you eat a healthy diet and take supplements, you may be struggling with nutrient deficiencies. Over time this can lead to chronic disease and reduce your body’s ability to fight infection.
Reasons why people have nutrient deficiencies:
Because each of us is metabolically and biochemically unique, the micronutrient requirements for one person may be quite different from the requirements of another.
Although you may eat a balanced diet, you may have micronutrient deficiencies if you do not properly absorb vitamins, minerals and/or antioxidants
Health conditions can be affected directly or indirectly by micronutrient deficiencies
Our micronutrient requirements change as we get older. Reduced absorption of many nutrients occurs as we age. Vitamin B12 is an example of this.
Excessive physical activity, prescription drugs, smoking, alcohol, sedentary habits and physical/emotional/environmental stressors all impact micronutrient status and demands.
Barbara helped me loosen my obsession with weight loss and gently refocused me toward healthy eating, creative ways to manage stress, increase heart health, and regulate hormones. I went to consult with her because I wanted to stop sabotaging my weight loss. I thought I had all the possible nutrition awareness in the world, but she gave me such extremely helpful new thoughts in such a caring manner that I am approaching my self-care journey very differently now. With her support and encouragement, I expect to be able to sustain positive changes and “go the distance” instead of the old diet, crash and burn cycle.Grace Buchanan, Flemington, New Jersey
