Q. I am very interested in getting the nutritional analysis, but have gotten nowhere with getting a doctor to request the blood work. Id really appreciate your assistance in this matter. Thank you so much for helping me to get a handle on my acne problem.

A. Nutritional Testing Services is a (LLC) limited liability corporation set-up to distribute diagnostic tests which, can be sent to consumers directly. They recommend and utilize some of the top laboratories and doctors in the country to perform the various testing procedures and analysis. Once NTS receives the results of your test(s) from a laboratory, they then forward it on to a doctor for analysis, interpretation and recommendations.

 

Q. A dear friend of mine has COPD and is very depressed. She can't seem to get straight answers from her doctors and the many medications she is taking, and the ways and different times she must take them, are causing her great frustration and distress.

l. Is there any help for her other than all these medications?

2. Are there any clinics where COPD patients, specifically, are treated?

3. Are there any holistic-type treatments she could benefit from?

Thank you for any advice you can give.

A. COPD is usually caused by many years of smoking. If your friend is truly fed-up with the typical medical ring-around-the-pharmacy-dance, I would recommend she consider the following hollistic type approach(s.)

1. She should have a Nutritional Blood Analysis (this advanced nutritional analysis helps to custom design a nutritional regimen for the individual) and will help localize weaknesses/imbalances within glands, organs and systems.

2. A Toxic Metal and Mineral Analysis (most smokers are contaminated with at least one or more toxic metal ie...there are high quanities of cadmium in burned cigarette smoke.) And, they are universally deficient in minerals ie...calcium, magnesium, zinc, etc... This test will help to quantify the toxics and the deficiencies.

People with chronic health problems like your friend, need cutting-edge nutritional testing, analysis, and recommendations. She will not receive this type of care medically. Let her know, that naturally oriented help is available for her.

She can get started at www.nutritionaltest.com or call 1-800-606-8822.

I look forward to working with her.

 

Q. I listen to your show twice a month, and I'm between 60+. I would like to know what you would recommend for toenail fungus. The drugs are expensive and give me diarrera. Have tried direct nail applications and have no success.

A. Topical treatments alone against toe-nail fungus are usually futile in the long term. The most successful treatments must include an internal and external assault. The most important of which, is internal. Fungal infection such as yours, originate as an overgrowth of fungus problem in the gastrointestinal tract. Then and it travels throughout your blood stream, eventually camping-out under a nice moist dark warm area such as the toe nail.

The only chance you have short of having someone torture you by removing the toe nails, is to fix the gastrointestinal overgrowth of fungus. Concurrently, we can also work on the surface issue. To get started, you'll need a Comprehensive Digestive Test. Please go to www.nutritionaltest.com and inquire/order the testing kit. If all else fails, please visit a Podiatrist (DPM)



Q. I'm interested in finding out what my system is lacking vitamin wise however, with exception of a couple of the tests offered, why are the tests so expensive?

A.     I guess everybody has their own definition of expensive. Actually, you'll discover in time, that the money you save by not becoming sick far and away exceeds your initial investment. And, could you think of a better investment than your health? Besides, the convenience and lack of hassle associated with "at home" nutritional testing, coupled with the fact that most Doctors don't understand clinical nutrition or even offer it.

Q. I need more info on the Salivary Hormone Test; is it something a GP can do or is a homeopathic inclined person best suited for the job? Also, is this a more accurate test than the testosterone, prolactin, and other tests that have already been done?

A.     It is unlikely, that you'll find a G.P. who performs Salivary Hormones tests or understands how to treat an imbalance without drugs if one should be detected. Salivary Hormone analysis can measure testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, dhea, cortisol, melatonin, etc. and more accurately than serum blood analysis. The reason it's more reliable is because it's done over a period of time as opposed to a blood draw, which simply provides a snap-shot of what's going-on at that particular instant. In addition, because hormones are always ebbing and flowing ie...certain hormones are in richer concentrations in the a.m. vs. p.m. if someone happens to draw the blood at the wrong time, you'll receive false positive or false negative information. I hope this information helps you understand why Salivary Hormone Testing is a superior methodology, if one is to expect accurate results. Keep in mind also, that if you have testing of any kind through Nutritional Testing Services, a physician/board certified clinical nutritionist will be doing the analysis and recommending.


Q. Dear Nutritionaltest.com, I recently visited my medical doctor because I haven't been feeling well for awhile. He examined me and ordered a series of blood tests. After 3 visits to his office and alot of worrying about what he was going to find, I was told, that everything including my blood tests results were all normal. My doctor tried to blame the way I feel on some psychological problem he felt I have and attempted to prescribe an antidepressant drug, which I refused. Why is it, that I feel sick and unhealthy and my doctor says, "everything is perfectly normal."

A.     Dear Mary, You're not alone! Millions of people every year experience the same exact situation. Your medical doctor has been trained to look for crisis imbalances associated with blood laboratory findings. In other words, until your blood test findings reach a certain level of concern, everything is perfectly normal. This model subscribes to the theory, that you're healthy until you're really sick. Unfortunately this is the very thinking that's gotten us into the health care crisis we face today ie...fix it when it breaks and not before. On the other hand, Nutritional Blood Analysis and preventive care analysis in general is often able to detect and warn of subtle changes in a persons blood tests, similar to a weather forecaster spotting a weather pattern or trend. This in tern, allows for an early warning system and understanding, that there's imminent danger on the way. Nutritional Blood Analysis utilizes a different range or set of numbers by which to determine where your blood test values should be ideally. If your blood test values fall outside of an optimal range of blood values, your body is indicating the presence of dysfunction and imbalance. If caught early enough, nutritional balancing, dietary modification, and other lifestyle changes can be made in order to thwart whatever illness pattern is starting to get a foot hold. The analysis itself takes several hours and is interpreted by Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist and Physician. You will receive an easy to understand written report of findings and recommendations. Once you've been exposed to this type of preventive health care philosophy and analysis, you'll be a much better educated health care consumer. Additionally, if anyone in the future try's to tell you that your ill feelings are all in your head and you're simply in need of couch time or drug's, you'll be able learn the real reason for the symptoms and better yet, be able to do something to help yourself..... Naturally!
