Why Our Bodies May Be Nutritionally Deficient


Despite the many production-related benefits of modern farming, the unfortunate nutritional result is that today’s humans can no longer rely solely upon plants to provide us with all our necessary vitamins and minerals. Stripped of precious vitamins and minerals by current agricultural techniques, our once nutrient-rich soil is now lacking in many of the nourishing properties our bodies need for good health.

Animals have also become unreliable sources of nutrients for us, as the plants they consume suffer from the same lack of essential vitamins and minerals. In turn, the meat we eat fails to pass on many of these once abundant essential nutrients to our bodies. The widespread use of pesticides, preservatives and other additives only serve as additional impediments to our absorption of whatever nutrients may remain.

How Nutritional Deficiencies Cause These Conditions

As cells are the basic building blocks of the body, proper cell function is essential to our overall health. Macronutrients and micronutrients are essential in optimizing cellular function and preventing chronic illness and disease. Cell membranes are composed primarily of fatty acid-based lipids and proteins. They are remarkably flexible yet formidable barriers allowing some dissolved substances to pass while blocking others. 

Nutritional deficiencies negatively affect us right down to the cellular level. For example, if you are deficient in essential fatty acids, there may be holes in your cell membranes that can let in the bad substances and let out the good nutrients.

Vitamins and  Minerals


Most of us recognize the importance of vitamins, but minerals are often overlooked.  Minerals are as important as vitamins and function as a catalyst for vitamins to do their work.  If vitamins are the raw materials for your body, then minerals are the workers who make those materials useful. Together, vitamins and minerals acting in concert perform hundreds of roles in the body, helping to shore up bones, heal wounds, bolster your immune system, and repair cellular damage. 


How a Customized Diet and Supplement Plan Helps Nutritional Deficiencies


While the oral supplements you may have chosen for yourself may be mildly effective, the reality is that broad-range oral supplements taken randomly may not be properly absorbed or fully metabolized by our bodies, and may be expelled as waste products. They may have contraindications or may be ineffective when used together. Attempting to address our complex nutritional deficiencies by taking various and random oral supplements is like using a blunt object to address a problem better suited to a precise surgical instrument.  

Our Customized Diet and Supplemental Plans begin with a careful evaluation of your current nutrient levels and health concerns. We take this surgically precise approach, choosing a diet and array of supplements that not only target the fundamental root causes of these ailments at a cellular level, but also maximize absorption of vitamins and nutrients at a cellular level.
