From simple at-home self test monitoring and nutrient specific quick tests, to state-of-the-art laboratory testing, learn how to more accurately evaluate your nutritional status and balance your body chemistry – blood vitamins, hair minerals, saliva hormones, stool digestive function and urinary anti-nutrients (toxins). Learn what test method is best for which nutrients, as well as which ones are the most relevant for you personally. You’ll perform nutrient specific quick tests in class that provide instant feedback about your nutritional status, a partial nutrition physical examination (the mouth, nails and skin are rich and accurate indicators), plus take home self-test nutrition questionnaires.
Establishing your nutrition baseline may be the most important step you take to improving your health. If you wouldn’t add oil to your car’s engine without checking the dipstick, don’t change your diet or take supplements without first knowing what you’re adding them to – your personal fingerprint baseline. If you are not testing, you are guessing.
