Giving Your Body What It Needs

Talking to patient about supplementsIn order to function optimally, your body needs certain vitamins and minerals, and what’s “enough” of a particular nutrient for one person isn’t necessarily adequate for someone else. At Abundant Health Arizona, nutrition plays an integral role in our approach to helping your body heal. If you don’t have sufficient nutrient support, then no matter how hard you try, your body will be unable to achieve your full health potential.

Many issues that present as chiropractic issues are caused by nutrition deficiency. Our goal is to identify those deficiencies and correct them, giving your body everything it needs to heal. Vitamins and minerals are necessary for building tissues and neurotransmitters, and are the building blocks of all your cells, so having those nutrients available allows your body to heal faster and more completely.

Our Approach

Dr. Carla has over twenty years’ experience in nutritional counseling. She creates unique nutritional and supplement plans using a combination of health history, neuro-reflex testing, and lab testing to customize recommendations specifically for your needs.

Many people take supplements because they hear the advertising and think they must need a certain amount of this vitamin or that mineral, but if you’re taking vitamins you don’t need, you’re just wasting money. It’s important to take the supplements that your body needs, in the quantity it needs. Quality is also important, and many grocery-store supplements are loaded with fillers.

Creating an individualized nutrition plan for your unique needs will help support your body in your overall healing process.

Test, Don’t Guess

Dr. Carla works with many patients who have been following nutrition and lifestyle recommendations for years, yet they still deal with chronic symptoms. It’s true – food is medicine. But what do you do when you’re eating well and taking supplements and you still seem to struggle?

Today we have access to a wide array of supplements and there are even scientific studies on the efficacy of most nutrients and supplement formulas. However, trying to match a supplement to a symptom can leave you frustrated (and broke) and usually results in a plan that’s hard to follow and “pill fatigue.”

XYZ nutrient may be the key to your issue, but there are many other factors to consider such as:

  • How deficient are you in that nutrient?
  • How much do you need to take to fill that deficiency?
  • Are there other nutrients you need to take along with it to have it be active?
  • Do you have toxins blocking absorption?
  • Does your gut support the proper breakdown and assimilation of nutrients?
  • Do you have genetic variations that change how your body uses nutrients?

Without answers to the above questions, you can spend a lot of time and money trying to find the right combination of diet and supplementation to support you.

Instead of relying on guesswork, Dr. Carla uses a targeted and informed strategy that can include a thorough history, neuro-reflex testing, metabolic balance testing, and lab testing.

Lab Testing provides us with a comprehensive view, allowing us to identify and address the root causes of health issues. Through lab testing, we gain invaluable insights into your body’s specific needs and responses. This enables Dr. Carla to tailor recommendations to your unique biochemistry.
