A Preventative Health Check-Up provides a thorough review of your laboratory results, anthropometrics, lifestyle, and an analysis of your diet to assess for deficiencies, excesses, and risks for diseases. Thereafter, as part of your annual Preventative Health Check-Up you are provided with personalized guidance to optimize your food intake for a healthier lifestyle and year ahead.

Here are 5 benefits of a Preventative Nutrition Check-Up and Why You Should Get One Now.

1) An expert identifies any vitamin and nutrient deficiencies or excesses you may have.

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, peri or postmenopausal, vegan, constipated, have diarrhea, allergies, or follow a restrictive diet you may be at high risk for deficiencies that can be corrected within your desired diet. However, any individual may be at risk for vitamin and nutrient deficiencies and may benefit from an annual Preventative Health Check-Up.

Michelle’s Preventative Health Check-Up is a thorough nutrition analysis of your diet to ensure it is optimized for your age, gender, medical history, family history, work-life balance, and your physical condition and emotional state. Thereafter, you are provided with personalized guidance to optimize your food intake for a healthier lifestyle and year ahead.

2) Get rid of uncomfortable symptoms you may normalize.

  • Are you feeling tired?
  • Do you experience brain fog? migraines? bloating? and/or sleep issues regularly?
    -Do you have brittle nails and/or hair? muscle cramps? cracked corners of your mouth?

These signs and symptoms are not normal and should be looked at for further assessment. It could be due to a vitamin deficiency or imbalance in nutrition.

A Preventative Health Check-Up can identify if it is due to a vitamin deficiency or nutrient imbalance and provide guidance to have these uncomfortable symptoms subside.

3) Optimize vitamin and mineral absorption for your body to easily utilize them to work efficiently and protect your cells.

If certain foods are consumed together, or certain supplements are too high in a specific nutrient, it may cause a nutrient deficiency. A Preventative Health Check-Up reviews your diet to make sure you pair foods to optimize the food’s bioavailability.

4) Ensure you are obtaining all the required nutrients from the food you eat.

There are some nutrients called essential nutrients that must be obtained through food, that your body cannot make. Your body requires these essential nutrients in quantities that differ by age, gender, medical history, physical, and hormonal state. A Preventative Health Check-Up reviews each person’s needs and identifies missing nutrients in their diet that are needed for optimal health.

5) Stave off chronic diseases such as heart attacks and diabetes before it’s too late.

Chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease are slow and progressive which means it can take years to decades to show up on blood tests. A Preventative Health Check-Up provides tips to tailor your lifestyle to help avoid these preventable chronic diseases in the future.
