Nutritional Well Being Q & A

Why is Nutritional Testing Helpful?

Many patients experience chronic illnesses because of nutritional deficiencies. NutrEval® offers nutritional recommendations based on a patient’s individual test results. Clinicians commonly use such testing to determine the nutritional deficiencies that are at the root of chronic conditions such as:

  • Mood disorders
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Fibromyalgia or Fatigue
  • Optimized health and sports fitness

Genova designed the NutrEval® profile to give physicians a better understanding of patients' nutritional deficiencies. The NutrEval® profile includes an analysis of:

  • Metabolism
  • Amino acid
  • Essential and metabolic fatty acids
  • Nutrient Elements and Toxic Elements
  • Oxidative stress

What is the SpectraCell Test?

Micronutrient testing evaluates how well micronutrients are truly working within a person’s white blood cells.  These tests can be used to provide nutritional assessments for several clinical conditions, overall wellness, and preventing the progression of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, immunological disorders, and metabolic disorders.

What is a Medically Supervised Diet?

Prima Health Clinic addresses fundamental nutritional reasons for the inability to lose weight and find solutions for unlocking stubborn obesity and inflammatory challenges. We have seen many patients who have to do all the right things as far as diet and exercise and still do not lose the weight they desire. By testing hormones, cortisol, and micronutrient deficiencies, impairment of carbohydrate and fat metabolism, and eliminating toxins, we can gain valuable insight and knowledge while creating a healthy weight loss program that is unique to you.

We also offer the HCG protocol to help you get to the goal faster!

A person can consume a nominal amount of HCG, lose weight and not be hungry. The protocol aids in ridding the body of abnormal fat rather than subcutaneous or organ cushioning fat.

Why choose Ortho Molecular Products for your nutritional supplements? 

In today’s news, it is far too common to hear about nutritional supplements in the market that are unregulated and ineffective. In a recent 2013 study of Vitamin D in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers who tested vitamin D pills sold in stores found they contained anywhere from 9% to 146% of the doses listed on their labels.  Although none of the pills was likely to be dangerous (in this case), many contained too little of the vitamin to effectively treat someone with a deficiency.

Dr. Nguyen, therefore, recommends a professional-grade line of nutraceuticals from Ortho Molecular to support patients with deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. These nutraceuticals are offered exclusively through licensed health care providers and are not available in retail stores.
