Nutritional Well Being Q & A

Prima Health Clinic

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?

Medically supervised diets are programs created by a doctor to assist patients with losing weight with an overall goal of becoming healthier. Treatment usually takes place in a clinical environment, with one of the medical doctors or another medical professional. The doctors can also employ Ortho Molecular Products which can help patients detox and provide nutritional supplements for a balanced diet. Though it can seem pretty obvious, sustaining a healthy diet and exercising on a regular basis are truly the best ways to shed excess weight. Patients can develop great diet and exercise habits which can keep them healthy for a long time following the completion of the weight loss program. It is also important to attend every follow-up appointment scheduled. It is suggested that patients follow up with the doctor at least every 3 to 4 weeks until the weight loss goals set in the beginning are achieved.

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.
