Vitamin & Mineral Deficiency Testing

Testing for Food Intolerances, Environmental Sensitivities and levels of Vitamins and Minerals in the body is considered to be a full test and takes approximately 1 hour 20 minutes.

Vitamin and mineral deficiencies go hand in hand with food intolerance due to an impaired digestive system. If your body is deficient in a specific vitamin or mineral this may be contributing to your symptoms and correcting this alone can, in some cases, rectify the problem. Lifestyles can also influence your vitamin & mineral intake and therefore this check is very useful for those who are already weakened by illness, diet, stress, age or those who smoke or drink in excess as this depletes vitamin intake.


Why test for minerals?

Minerals are involved in almost all enzyme reaction within the body - they are the ‘sparkplugs’ of life. Without enzyme activity, life would cease to exist.  

Some common causes of a mineral imbalance:

● Insufficient diet – such as excessive intake of refined carbohydrates and sugars, strict or exclusive diets.
● Stress
● Birth control pills
● Medication
● Accumulation of toxic metals from the environment, job or hobby
● Hereditary mineral deficient patterns from parents

Even if you are not experiencing a severe problem abnormal changes in body nutritional deficiencies may result in early, subtle changes, for example:

● White spots in fingernails – indicates possible zinc deficiency
● Brittle hair and nails – calcium and copper imbalance
● Deep grooves across nails – calcium deficiency
● Stretch marks – zinc deficiency
