Health Consultation Services: On-site or off-site (FaceTime, Skype or over the phone)
Adin Smith, MS, Clinical Nutritionist and Dr. Biner, DC, offer the following services to support your optimal health:
Our approach involves evaluating the following key areas:
Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids are involved in pathways that influence health. Optimizing nutrient status supports overall health. The testing that we run will assess whether or not certain nutrient deficiencies exist and how to correct them.
Toxins such as mercury, lead, arsenic and antimony are damaging to our cells. Environmental pollutants are increasingly abundant in the food, water, and air we breath. An example of factors that may increase the risk of accumulating one of these toxins (mercury) arise from mercury amalgam fillings and dietary fish/seafood intake. Genetic predisposition may influence how effectively various toxins are eliminated from the body; two people with the same exposure to mercury may have different levels inside the red blood cells.
Conducting an oxidative stress panel will help assess levels of common toxins as well as antioxidant biomarkers to determine if the body is able to protect itself. This is valuable information, as low levels of toxic exposures may not be problematic if the body has the nutrients needed to help protect and eliminate them.
Gastrointestinal function is critical for good health, which is why assessing digestive function, inflammation, microbial diversity and population are important.
For those facing chronic conditions, or for those interested in optimizing wellness, investigative health testing paired with our consulting service helps us customize dietary and nutritional supplement plans.
