Why Lab Testing?
It is never advised to self-diagnose and treat bodily symptoms without the proper testing. There are a number of biological, mental, emotional, psychological, and biochemical causes for symptoms within the body, however, testing can help determine the true source of the issue so that the correct herbs, minerals or vitamin supplements can be used to treat and alleviate related symptoms.
Many medical conditions are caused by underlying nutritional deficiencies within the body.
That is precisely why it is important for each patient to take the opportunity to discuss any symptoms they are experiencing and have the correct tests run.

These sources can be analyzed to determine any nutritional deficiencies that could be causing a number of health problems. Many people do not realize that they can have a normal blood chemistry result that does not reflect a number of nutritional issues.
