Spectracell Micronutrient Testing- Feel your best all year long!
In the past 34 years I have been offering Nutrition Counseling to patients and clients. When I
first graduated from schooI in 1982, I was taught to tell people to eat a balanced diet from the Four Food Groups and then the Food Guide Pyramid (1989), and you would get the balance of your Nutritional Needs.
There was even a time when the Medical/Nutrition opinion just take a good multivitamin
mineral supplement and don’t worry about your nutrition.
Today I know that is anything but the truth.
With the nuances and availability of advanced Functional and Integrated Nutrition Option
for clients we not only can pinpoint deficiencies in Micro and Macro-nutrients, we can
also modify and reduce the risks and effects of chronic inflammation and disease.
At Feeding The Body Feeding The Soul we have several really terrific tests we offer our
clients to stave off inadequacies in nutritional deficiencies and also reduce inflammation and improve medical health.
One of my favorites, The Spectracell Test-can evaluate over 50 micronutrients in your
body to see if you are adequate, low or depleted in a large variety of vitamins, minerals,
amino acids and fat soluble lipids.
Nutrition is the Biochemistry of Human Health. When we are low in a micronutrient, we are running in the RED.
Won’t you look at your own Spectracell Micronutrient Test today and find out if you are IN BALANCE or OUT OF ALIGNMENT with your own Nutrient Needs?
The Spectracell test is affordable and is possibly covered by insurance.
Ask me today how you can take better care of your health with Micronutrient Testing and other valuable tools we offer to help you feel your best and be your best yet.
Our testing can be performed Nationwide.
Best Health Wishes,

Spectracell Micronutrient Testing at Feeding The Body Feeding The Soul
I am so excited about the Spectracell Micronutrient Testing that we offer at Feeding The Body Feeding The Soul. Please take a look at this information below and contact me with any questions.
ARE YOU IN CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH, OR IS IT CONTROLLING YOU?
Nutritional balance plays a key role in optimal wellness, chronic disease prevention and managing the aging process.
Be Proactive, NOT Reactive
Traditionally, a person waited to go to the doctor at the first signs of a symptom. Today, individuals are looking for way to not only manage illness with personalized treatment plans, but they are also seeking to achieve a higher level of wellness.
Eating a balanced diet, exercising and taking a multivitamin is simply not enough. Each person's body is unique in its own way. Due to the complexity of the human body, an individualized healthcare approach is the only way to guarantee optimal results.
What is Micronutrient Testing?
SpectraCell's Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body's deficiencies.
What results will I see?
SpectraCell's Micronutrient lab results include an overview page with all deficiencies listed, numeric and graphic reports easily identifying deficiencies and repletion and supplementation recommendations.
SpectraCell's Micronutrient test includes:
for Total Antioxidant Function
Immune Response Score
Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to affect the function of the immune system which can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis.

At Feeding the Body Feeding The Soul we offer some really terrific Nutrition Tools; Spectracell MTHFR Micronutrient Testing is the latest.
In this new world of technology and geonomics we have some old tried and true techniques that we offer like Nutrition Coaching, Nutrition Education and Weight Management techniques and Cooking Skills Classes.
At the same time we also have new cutting edge technology that can assist you to feel your best through diet and supplementation if and when necessary. We offer ALCAT Food Sensitivity Testing where you can test 100-400 food items that might be causing inflammation and keeping you from being your best AND we offer SpectraCell Micronutrient Testing.
Today I would like to share with you about the Spectracell Testing. In this simple blood test that you can have run at a local laboratory we test for 50 items including 12 vitamins,5 minerals, 3 amino acids, 6 Antioxidants, fatty acids, metabolites and markers of carbohydrate metabolism.
This test reveals information that can directly influence your health. So why would someone want to be tested? I was a perfect example:
What is Spectracell MTHFR?
MTHFR is an enzyme responsible for converting 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to the product 5-methyltetrahydrofolate - it is involved in the metabolism of folate and homocysteine. The product of the reaction catalyzed by MTHFR converts homocysteine (a potentially toxic amino acid) to methionine (a useful and necessary amino acid).
Why is Spectracell MTHFR Genotyping Important?
Risks Associated with Spectracell MTHFR Variants/High Homocysteine:
Who Should be Tested?
So what was I to do? I did had one of the MTHFR markers, which meant I didn’t methylate my folic acid correctly- in short terms. I began to supplement my diet with the missing vitamins specific to my results and I was on my way to feeling even better than I did before.
I just recently (two years later) had my tests run again. All of my vitamin and mineral levels were at their correct amounts. I still had a low folic acid level- so I added a different supplement to my regime that I provide from Designs for Health. However, there are many other wonderful companies that we work with and recommend.
Had I never taken the test, I would never have known- I am relieved to know today that my health continues to be managed through a variety of new and old techniques. Eating well, getting check-ups for medication and blood work and of course throwing in some other healing modalities that I love like Reiki or IET plus yoga, exercise and walking my beloved dog a few times a day.
Do you want to know if your vitamin and other micronutrient levels are all they can be too?
Contact me today and have your Spectracell MTHFR Micronutrient Panel run specifically for you.
Be all you are meant to be.
Have a wonderful and healthy day!
