Micronutrient Testing will help you better answer these questions!

At Whitley Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we offer specific lab testing to determine what you need for optimal health called Micronutrient Testing. “Did you know that 50% of those taking multivitamins are still nutritionally deficient.” Are YOU getting the nutrients YOU need? We want to find out exactly where your deficiencies are so you are not wasting time and money on supplements you may not need.

Spectracell Laboratories (Advanced Clinical Testing)

SpectraCell Laboratories developed their exclusive, patented micronutrient testing to measure the function of selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells. Analysis can reveal a person’s functional nutrient status over a much longer time period than conventional serum testing. SpectraCell’s tests give a more meaningful measurement of nutritional status than all other nutritional testing. Click here to view a SpectraCell micronutrient testing sample report.

WHY IS NUTRIENT STATUS IMPORTANT?

Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress the function of the immune system which can contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. You may be deficient in some vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and/or other essential micronutrients and not even know it!
