Nutrition is one of the key factors that directly affect your overall health. It is necessary to provide your body with the proper nutrient, vitamins, and minerals in order for your cells to perform optimally. With excellent cellular function, your metabolism, your digestion, your circulation, your ENTIRE BODY is healthy and strong.

 

Nutritional Analysis

With our busy lives, we forget to nourish our bodies with the right foods; we postpone or outright do not exercise several times a week; and we do not spend any time finding harmony in our spirits. Consequently, our bodies give us signals that something is not in harmony or out of balance. We begin to have headaches, decreased energy, gain weight, or become depressed. We feel discord and dis-ease. Maybe you are experiencing adrenal fatigue where your adrenal glands are overworked and need reenergizing. Oftentimes this is due to being deficient in certain nutrients and/or vitamins/minerals.

One way to start listening to our bodies is to find out what our bodies may need to bring it back into harmony, back into health. Our nutrition is a great way to start! We have consultations, micronutrient testing, detailed cholesterol testing, and comprehensive supplement programs.

Nutrition Consults

We provide an opportunity for you to sit down with our healthcare providers to discuss your current dietary habits, what you are wanting to achieve in regards to your health and offer you additional tools to have a more complete picture of your present nutritional status. This visit normally takes 30 minutes.

Micronutrient Testing

Spectracell Laboratories offer a comprehensive analysis (SPECTRACELL TEST) of certain key vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, fatty acids, metabolites, and carbohydrate metabolism.

Nutrition Consults

This test allows us to evaluate your overall nutritional needs and identifies the areas you are deficient in such as Vitamin D, Folate and antioxidant functions. Once we’ve identified your unique deficiencies, we will then discuss in detail what measures you need to take to replenish your body and bring it back to the level for optimum health.

We may discuss specific supplements, dietary changes, fitness goals in order for you to become healthier. After a period of time, we will ask that you return in 3-4 months for a follow-up appointment to reassess your needs and evaluate your progress. Remember, it takes time for your body to adjust and respond to these changes. Normally, it is within 8-12 weeks before you begin to see and feel a difference.

Cholesterol Testing: Lipoprotein Particle Profile (LPP)

The LPP test provides more accurate cardiovascular risk assessment than the conventional cholesterol testing.

  • Detects all of the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) risk factors including Lp(a), RLP, DHL2b, and small, dense LDL
  • Accurately measures particle subgroups of VLDL, LDL and HDL
  • Helps identify the 50% of the patients that are at risk for cardiovascular disease, but have “normal” cholesterol levels.

Supplement Programs

Did you know that 50% of those taking supplements will remain deficient? Why is that? This is due to the fact that not all vitamins or supplements are created equal. For example, if you purchase an item from the dollar store, you can purchase an enormous amount of “stuff” for a small cost. However, what is the quality? What normally happens after a few days? The “stuff” breaks, falls apart, or is nonfunctional. The old adage, “You get what you pay for” definitely applies here. However, if you purchase that same item at a quality department store at a higher cost, the quality is better and this item lasts for YEARS…. Again, “You get what you pay for.”

 

Supplement Programs

With supplements, it is definitely true. After much research, Total Wellness for Women has collaborated and worked with a few selected companies that we strongly believe has the highest quality supplements that have high absorption rates within your body and 100% pharmaceutical grade ingredients to give your body EXACTLY what it needs.

We have over 100 supplements that offer adrenal support, enhance liver function, increase antioxidants, boost your immunity, and the list goes on. We simply offer you the convenience of not having to shop around or question the quality of the supplements that you need. You are more than welcome to use other places for purchasing supplements, but know that our doctors and nurse practitioners, and the staff also use these supplements themselves.

If you would like to purchase any of the vitamins and/or supplement, please stop by the office. We are currently working on having the ability to purchase them online.
