Go Beyond The Lab: Executive Medical Now Provides SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing

How many times have you seen your doctor, who states everything is normal but you still feel poor?   Or you feel your latest labs aren’t telling the entire story? It could be you are lacking nutritional deficiencies. According to the NHANES Study, a large US national survey, showed that 93% of Americans suffer some type of nutritional deficiency. Due to this, we are proud to offer SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing for our patients.

 

What is Micronutrient Testing?

Unlike most doctors that measures serum testing, micronutrient testing measures 35 nutritional components including proteins, vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants through our leukocytes. Recent research has showed by analyzing these cells gives a more accurate analysis of our body’s deficiencies. We have partnered with SpectaCell, considered the gold standard lab for micronutrient standing.

Why are these Deficiencies Important?

Every physiologic function in your body need micronutrients to function optimally.

Vitamin, mineral and antioxidants deficiencies are thought to lead to degenerative conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. JAMA (June 19, 2002- Vol 287, p 23)

Deficiencies can be from environment, your diet, or can be even due to the  medications you take.
